All about the Devkyara Trek.

One of the least explored trails, the Devkyara trek climbs up to an altitude of 4,100 meters, straddling the Himachal and Uttarakhand border. It is ideal for beginner, owing to the slightly gradual gradient. The enchanting meadows of Devkyara, shadowed by the majestic Devkyara peak, are something right out of a fantasy movie. The trail begins from Sankri, and leads you through beautiful dense forests and meadows of the valleys Supin and Obra, along with moraines, glaciers, and narrow cliffs. Furthermore, the trek winds through some of the most rustic villages of Uttarakhand, offering you a sneak peek into the fascinating daily lives of the natives. As steeped in mythology as it is, the campsite of Babra is arguably the most interesting campsites of your trek, brimming with countless mythological tales. It is also one of the few treks that can be attempted in winters.

Max Altitude – 4,100 meters

Duration – 10 days

Level – Moderate

Highlights

The moderate level of the trek makes it ideal for very fit beginners, as well as those with previous high altitude trekking experience. It is mandatory, however, that you follow a strict fitness regime to be able to adjust to the high altitude (i.e. lower oxygen levels).

The trek can be done throughout the year (except monsoons), but the months of May, June, July, September and October are ideal, as you can see the place in blooming greenery, with beautiful floral patches popping up everywhere. Although, if you’re someone more inclined towards snowy landscapes, winter season is your best bet.

During summers and post monsoons, the weather is pleasant, with a lush carpet of greenery gracing your trails. During winters, the place turns into a snowy wonderland, though temperatures plummet considerably.

Rucksack, high ankle trekking shoes, one fleece jacket, one down feather / post-monsoon well-experienced, 3 pairs of quick dry T-shirts and trek pants, 5-6 pairs of socks, balaclava, a daypack, sunscreen SPF 50+, scarf, towel, lip balm, headlamp / torch, 2 water bottles of 1 litre, and personal medicines.
