Nanda Devi Alpine Trek with Garry Weare
This outstanding trek includes unsurpassed mountain views with panoramas that extend to the Tibetan Plateau and to the soaring peaks that encircle the Nanda Devi Sanctuary rising to Nanda Devi (7816m) - the highest mountain in India. This is one of the many highlights on this exceptional trek that follows trails through luxuriant forest of bamboo, conifer and oak and many traditional Hindu villages. At higher elevations the meadows are carpeted with wildflowers set beneath a backdrop of sacred peaks. Combine this with no shortage of magnificent campsites, an incomparable trekking service and opportunities to wander the high ridges and you have the essence of this fulfilling trek.
