Kafni Glacier Trek Uttarakhand 2023

11 Days

Before beginning the Kafni Glacier walk, hikers must ascend to the Dhakuri pass, from which they may see the beautiful Himalayan peaks Nanda Khat and Maiktoli. Depending on the path you took, the glacier can be reached from either Almora or Kathgodam.

The Kafni Glacier Trek is tucked away in a serene and picturesque setting. It is situated in the Bageshwar district of Uttarakhand state’s Kumaon area, with the Pindar Valley to its left, the renowned peak of Nandkot below it, and the Nanda Devi Peak to its southeast.

River Kafni, a branch of the river Pindar, is created by the Kafni glacier. Again, the Alaknanda River is the source of Pindar, making it one of the two headstreams of the river Ganga.
