Overview

One of the toughest treks in lush green Garhwal valleys is Lamkhaga Pass which joins with Himachal Pradesh and northern-eastern region of Garhwal and is aligned with the Harsil-Sangla Trek. Trekkers from around the globe are attracted to these treks because of its snow-capped mountains, streams and uncertain paths along with its mesmerizing beauty.


The Harsil-Sangla range is quite rough, steep and precarious and is around 17,000 ft above the sea-level to 9000 ft till Harsil. The Lamkhaga Pass is like a dreamy walk on the heavens. You'll experience the beauty of stunning grassy lands and will have fun around the hiking on this pass. Above all this, Harsil in itself is a place where one can forget about one's daily struggles and calm oneself completely. Also, you'll be able to see the popular Wilson Cottage (1864) and Sat Tal or seven lakes.


Precisely, if you wish to accumulate some amazing sights of glacier stacked peaks, lots of snow-capped Greenlands, attractive meadows, eye-treating waterfalls, deep valleys, and overall experience the overwhelming green landscapes or experience the beauty of Garhwal then this trek is one of the best choices.

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. We will send you the information in your mailbox about Acute Mountain Sickness and trekking in high altitudes. On this trip, we carry bottled oxygen for use in emergencies.


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

Spending/Emergency Money: Approximately Rs. 8000-10000/- (in Indian Currency)should be carried for miscellaneous expenses including porter and trek crew tips, drinks, soft drinks, etc. We recommend that you carry your travel money in the form of cash as the availability of ATM is less in these remote areas. This can also serve as your emergency spending money.


13. Travel Insurance: It is recommended to have travel insurance for these kinds of adventures. When taking out insurance please ensure the policy you choose covers you for the activities and altitude included in your itinerary. We will ask for the Travel Insurance Details over a mail.
