All about the Traill’s Pass.

A stunning high altitude pass named after George William Traill, Traill’s Pass is a beautiful high altitude pass that sits at the head of Pindari Glacier, linking the valleys of Lawan and Pindari. Flanked by Mt. Nanda Devi on one side, and Nanda Kot on the other, the pass segregates the Kumaon and Garhwal regions of the Himalayas. The rivers Pindar and Gori Ganga originate from the glaciers Pindari and Lawan Gad respectively, gracing the sides of Traill’s pass. The majestic peaks of Garhwal Himalayas, including the legendary Nanda Devi, stand watch over you throughout the trek. The inspiring grandeur and beauty of the circling Himalayan majesty never leaves you and lingers even when you’ve returned. Brimming with adventure and thrill, the incredible beauty of the Traill’s Pass unveils itself only to well-experienced mountaineers.
