Kafni Glacier Trek

Kafni Glacier Trek

On the same route as of Pindari and Sunderdunga but slightly different near the end lies Kafani Glacier which is a name trekkers are surely aware of. It is often said that the trek route is more fun than the small-sized (3 Km length) glacier in itself if compared to the other glaciers located around the same area.

The glacier could be reached by both Almora and Kathgodam depending upon the route taken. From here on, Bageshwar becomes the common beginning point which after passing several villages takes to Khatiya after which the Kafani Glacier is located.

This glacier acts as the feed for Kafani River that merges with River Pindar which finally takes to River Alaknanda. This merging as everyone knows results into ends in River Ganges, making it one of the mightiest ‘water lifeline of India’.

One more reason of the popularity of the glacier is the ease of tackling the challenge in compared to the Pindari. The glacier could be approached beyond ‘Zero Point’ without needing any climbing gears and equipment unlike the other one.
