Nanda Devi Trek
Nanda Devi is the name of the sacred Goddess that signifies as “Bliss Giving Goddess”, is the name actually being idolized to India’s highest peaks being bordered by Kanchenjunga. This huge white double Pyramid Peak rises from the gigantic ring of high mountains bringing the sacred Garhwal at its backdrop and the high mountaineering routes bring perfect Nanda Devi trekking opportunities for all.
Nanda Devi arises from a gigantic ring of high mountains to form the Nanda Devi Sanctuary, an amphitheater of seventy miles in perimeter and 6000 m high in altitude, lying adjacent to the Rishiganga valley. The ultimate height of this peak encouraged many to climb the hills and made multiple unsuccessful attempts to cross the peaks but finally in 1934, Bill Tilman accompanied by Eric Shipton reached the sanctuary and then in 1936 climbed the summit with Noel Odell. With this ascent, Nanda Devi became the highest peak attained by man, a record which remained until the 1950 ascent of Annapurna.
Nanda Devi trekking tour takes the enthusiastic trekkers to the tremendously unapproachable basin being named as 'Nanda Devi Sanctuary'. The Rishi Ganga River originates here and then flows down from Nanda Devi to create a deep valley.
Nanda Devi East at the height of 7434 m is a supreme summit that closes the Sanctuary from the east. It is joined to the main summit by a spiky, 3 km edge almost entirely at a height of over 7000 m to bring perfect Nanda Devi trekking routes. For Hindu devotees, Nanda Devi is a blessed mountain, the name of which can be translated as follows: Nanda is one of the nicknames of the Goddess of Death, the wife of Shiva, while Devi means 'Goddess'.
