Overview

Panwali Kantha is one of the most beautiful treks, which is positioned at a height of 3,500 metres ( 11,500 ft.). This trek offers you with one of the rarest views of the complete range of Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath mountain peaks. On your way, you pass through the seven Bugyals of Panwali Kantha and if you are fortunate, you might catch a glimpse of the blue mountain goat. Panwali Kantha is a trek that offers unique visual treats in every season. From lush green meadows in summers to snow covered bugyals with inviting gentle slopes in winters. Given its moderate level of challenge, anyone with a normal fitness can do this trek. A great refresher from the monotonous routine and an ideal way to enter the vast world of trekking.

Trekking Tips

Well fitting strong shoes with a couple of woolen socks. The shoes should be used before treks to avoid blisters.
First aid set for minor accidents and sickness.
A raincoat is necessary to meet uncertainties of weather.
Chocolates, lozenges, candies, glucose and dry fruits provide extra pep and energy.
It is advisable not to exhaust energy by walking fast, as otherwise the trek will be not enjoyable.

The Mountaineering And Trekking Division of GMVN has well maintained stock of equipment, alpine tents, hollow filled sleeping bags, hollow filled jackets, wind-proof jactets, wind-proof trousers, ground sheets / mattresses, Snow goggles and rucksacks.

Trekking is very often confused with mountaineering, whilst mountaineering is a preplanned affair, trekking does not require as much preparation. Mountaineering is more technical in nature and is quite hazardous and this is not so in the case of trekking.

Trek to Base Camp, taking plenty of time to acclimatize and to visit the Sherpa families and support facilities that will become increasingly important during our expedition. We will spend several days in Namche ahead of most trekkers, and will visit the monasteries in Tengboche and Pangboche.
