Itinerary

(Uttarakhand To Uttarakhand)
1
Day :1 Dehradun (640M) to Sari Village (2,000M)
    Drive Duration: 7-8 hours drive | Drive Distance: 190 km Altitude: 6,560 ft Highlights: The journey is picturesque, as you pass through Devprayag, the confluence of rivers Alaknanda and Bhagirathi forms the river Ganga. The entire journey traverses the mountainside, with the river flowing. Sari is a picturesque hamlet in the Ukhimat block of the Rudraprayag district bordered with oak and rhododendrons trees which are also a constant throughout the trek. Declared as an eco-tourist village by the government of Uttarakhand, this quiet farming hamlet rests peacefully in the lap of the Himalayas far away from the noises of the city. Patterns formed from the dozens of paddy fields on the many slopes of the mountains in the village make for a neat design soothing to the eye. Expect to reach this peaceful haven by early evening to be welcomed by some warm smiles into a warm homestay.

Day :2 Sari (2,000M) to Deoriatal (2,400M)
    Trek Duration: 2.5-3 hours | Trek Distance: 4.1km Altitude Gain: 6,560 ft to 7810 ft Difficulty: Easy. The day starts from the village by climbing a few stairs, followed by a gradual climb on a well-defined rocky trail. A short walk on even terrain after an hour of climbing takes you to the campsite. Highlights: Take in the pretty view of vast farmlands as you start your ascent from Sari. Watch out for the first sights of rhododendron trees. Do not miss the sunset at Deoriatal with the mighty Chaukhambha massif looming in the background. Today is a short and easy day with a gradual ascent all the way to the campsite right next to this marvel of an alpine lake – the first highlight of our trek. The trail takes us through the thick forests of oak and rhododendrons on a well laden path to reveal a placid Deoriatal at its short end. We have all day to gaze at this beauty as it reflects the changing hues of the day in its clear waters. Overnight in tents.
3
Day :3 Deoriatal (2,400M) to Baniya Kund (2,600M) via Rohini Bugyal
    Distance: 18 kms Duration: 5-6 hours Today is a long day but one filled with immaculate beauty as we walk through thick forests ablaze with rhododendrons of various hues which get thicker and thicker in density as we advance. The path goes through the Kedarnath Sanctuary. If you look closely, you may find some of the animals and birds that inhabit this region. The trail today also offers up some magnificent views of the big peaks as it promised to do. The thicket of these blooming colours gives way to a clearing which is the meadows of Rohini Bugyal. And just a little further from here is another spectacle to behold which is our destination for the day: Baniya Kund. This will be our home for tonight and tomorrow night. The distance for today may be long but the climb is not very strenuous. The trail goes up and down to cover a total of 200M of ascent for today.
4
Day :4 Baniya Kund (2,600M) to Chandrashila (3,700M) via Tunganath to Baniya Kund (2,600M)
    Distance: 7-8 kms Duration: 6 hours Today is two high-points bunched in one on a path that takes us on well-marked trails. The day starts early so we have a chance to catch the first rays of the sun from the Tunganath Temple. The trail alternates between birch trees and meadows to take us to Tunganath and then onwards towards Chandrashila Top which presents the most glorious views of the highest peaks in the Garhwal Range. Tunganath to Chandrashila Top which lies at 3,700M is a fairly steep climb but the trail for today is otherwise gradual. After our venture for today, we return to Baniya Kund for the night.
5
Day :5 Baniya Kund (2,600M) to Dehradun (640M)
    Distance: 4 kms + 225 kms Duration: 2 hours trek + 7-8 hours drive Expect to reach Dehradun by late evening.
