Nanda Devi and Milam Glacier Expedition
An expedition in the truest sense, the trek gives exploring and adventure streak of a lot of moments of tickle and tackle. As with most of the tours in Kumaon region, this trip also gets initiated from Kathgodam but takes to Munsiyari for the trekking fun to begin, via Almora. Munsiyari is located at the banks of the tributary Gori Ganga of Ganges. The source of this river is Milam Glacier which is the highlight of this trekking expedition of Kumaon. The town in itself is a Nature’s alcove with attractions such as hot water springs, waterfalls and ashrams.
After Lilam, the next few days cover places such as Bugdiar (with enchanting meadows), Martoli (deep valleys and gorges), Milam (beginning for the glacier by the same name), Lwani, Nanda Devi Base Camp- East (Peaks, glaciers, meadows and moraine fields) and finally to the Nanda Devi East. The return is via the same route, which in a forges the moments spent in the luxury of Nature in the mind forever.
Trekking to both Milam Glacier and Nanda Devi opens new doors to understanding the way Nature shoulders the responsibility of nurturing. Feelings like this could only be understood by being in here with both body and mind which facilitates empathizing. Being of adventurous spirit only accentuates the experience.
