Lamkhaga Pass Trek

A Remote Trek In The North-West Garhwal

Lamkhaga Pass Trek  connects north eastern Garhwal Himalayas and Himachal Pradesh and is surrounded by an enticing landscape of snow, mountains and air of mystery. Lamkhaga Pass trek involves a steep ascent to 5200 feet, precarious glaciers and stream crossings, thin air and uneven terrain. It is rated as one of the most dangerous trails amongst the various mountain treks in India and even Indians require special permission to go on the trek. Lamkhaga pass trek though the difficulty level is an indefinite attribute, the following factors qualify Lamkhaga Pass for the most difficult trek in Himachal Pradesh.

Lamkhaga Pass Trek  is a fairly remote trek and is now regarded as the classic route from Gangotri to Kinnaur, which was first crossed by Marco Pallis in 1933. The beautiful route takes you through some of the most remote areas of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh, like the Jalandhari valley that is covered with flowers post monsoon. The snow in the early season could impede your progress. Harsil is famous for Wilson’s Cottage built in 1864. Gangotri is a short drive from Harsil, while Chitkul is the last village in the Baspa valley. The trek can be done from either side. But the ascent from Chitkul side a bit steeper than that of the Harsil side. Rope fixing is needed on both sides. Heavy snow to be expected on pre monsoon, whereas post monsoon makes way for lots of boulder hopping. A fantastic proposition to consider, any time. Lamkhaga pass  trek is better known as Chitkul to Gangotri or Harsil to Chitkul trek.

You must have done at least one high altitude trek before. Those who do not have requisite trek experience of high altitude passes should not apply for Lamkhaga Pass Trek.
