Panpatia Col Trek

A Mythical Trek in the Central Garhwal

Panpatia Col trek Between two of the most haloed pilgrimage sites Badrinath – Kedarnath, in the Himalayas lies a land that nurtures a legend worthy of difficult discovery and extreme exploration. A tale that has drawn feted explorers of the like of Meade, Shipton and Tilman, Martin Moran, Harish Kapadia, and countless other intrepid souls. Panpatia Col Trek is one of the high altitude mountain passes that gets across the Panpatia Glacier. It is surrounded by several major peaks of the Garhwal Himalayan region. From the group of 6thousanders, the Neelkanth at an elevation of 6,596 meters is the most prominent one.

Nonetheless, the peaks of Balakun at 6,108 meters, Kunaling at 6,471 meters, Januhut at 6,495 meters, Shri Parbat at 6,175 meters and Chaukhamba group and several other 5thousanders are visible throughout the trail from Badrinath to Ransi. The Panpatia Col trek that further traverses through two other high altitude mountain passes, several moraines, gushing streams and narrow cliffs is one of the toughest treks in the Garhwal Himalayan region. The Panpatia Col Trek requires some serious acclimatization at certain altitude and is recommended only to trekkers who have prior high altitude trekking experience.

Our 13 days Panpatia col trek was an amazing experience. Everything was well prepared and all equipment (tents, sleeping bags) in very good condition. The food during the trek was fantastic with an amazing variety and always more than enough for all of us. Our guide Trepan Negi and Bipin did an excellent job with guiding us through the mountains and explaining us nature, culture and history! The agency works very professional and fair. Good value for money.
