Overview

The Dhumdhar Kandi Pass trek is well known for its treacherous trails and extreme weather conditions. DhumdharKandi Pass sits to the north of the Bandarpunch massif and links the Bhagirathi valley with Rawaeen, part of the upper Tons Valley. The trail is flanked by icy glaciers on each side. These glaciers mother the magnificent rivers Yamuna and Bhagirathi, which drip down the massive snout. The trail stems from Jhala village and is marked by the conflux of the river Sian Gad and Bhagirathi. Zooming through the treacherous Kalanag Icefall and Bandarpoonch Glacier, the trek ends a little beyond Ruinsara Tal, at the quiet little village of Sankri. What is now a well-known trail, is believed to have been secretly traversed by invaders and traders to enter the isolated beauty of Tons. Though discovered by James Baillie in the year 1815, the pass remained virtually untouched till the year 1987, when an expedition was successfully led through.

7. Health & Vaccinations: 

Severe Allergies: If you have a severe allergy please inform the Trekmunk office before you travel. We will do all we can to help, but we cannot guarantee an allergy-free environment on trekmunk trips. You will need to carry your own treatment for the allergy with you, as 'adrenaline auto-injectors' are not carried as standard by our leaders and staff. You should inform your leader on the arrival of your allergy, and let them know where you keep your adrenaline pen.

Vaccinations: You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you require any specific vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella, along with hepatitis A and typhoid. Malarial prophylaxis is not usually required for trips in the mountains, however, if you are visiting rural and remote low lying areas then they might be necessary.

We do not encourage the purchasing of single-use plastic bottles.


10. Altitude: This adventure involves going to a very high altitude. This is not something that you should worry about; the human body is quite capable of adapting to a very wide range of altitudes, but it is important that we follow some simple rules in order to acclimatize successfully.

11. Guidance on Tipping: Tipping is the accepted way of saying thank you for good service.
