Brief Itinerary

Detailed Itinerary

You should reach Srinagar. The drive to Panikhar is very beautiful. Watch out for the segment from Ganderbal to Sindh waterway. Paddy fields on either side, willow, and poplar trees arranging the street and this is only a sample of Kashmir before the trek begins.


Panikhar is a town so little that you are as of now in the following town even before you have ventured out of this one. It is an assortment of hardly any houses in a run of the mill Zanskari custom. They are typically twofold storeyed with huge windows, little overhangs, and a horse shelter underneath the inclining rooftops. Quite often the houses have their field where the people develop their produce. So none of the houses is grouped. Shops are not many here. Ensure you've made trek buys at Kargil, including looking for food supplies and greens.

Meals : Dinner Only
Accommodation : Homestay
Time Taken : 10 hours
Altitude : 10,649 ft.
Distance : 265 km

Take the way to the market. Proceed past the post office to your left side. (The BSNL tower is in the fields to your right side). The street normally bends to one side showing up simply over the Panikhar Nala. The waterway is huge and solid. Stroll along the way to the extension that crosses the stream in an additional 10 minutes. Over the scaffold, veer left after the stream upstream. The scene changes right away. The town of Panikhar is not, at this point noticeable. Up ahead is the thin valley that you need to trek on. The government is making a soil track for four-wheelers.


This was a trekking trail before so it turns out to be genuinely simple to stroll on. 500 meters into the trek, you'll locate the tents of neighborhood specialists' check post. Enter your names and subtleties at the check post (neighborly and only a superficial custom) and resume your trek.

The Panikhar Nala abruptly goes calm. What was a spouting stream is currently a wide waterway bowl over a level plain. The stream parts, disseminating, forks, rejoins and does this on different occasions over the bowl. In the middle of these parts and forks are green glades, more lavish than the other. You have shown up at Sumdo–the intersection of two waterways. Up ahead, the intersection is unmistakably noticeable.


Camp here, the streams are full and loaded down with more ice sheets that take care of water. Sumdo/Denora is a marvelous campground. Getting the chance to invest energy here is a blessing that should be treasured.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Tents
Altitude : 12,350 ft.
Distance : 16 km

Start the day by removing your shoes. Different streams should be crossed to get to the opposite side. The bearing to take is the valley to one side, adhering to one side of the Nala that surges down the valley. A decent milestone is the Bakarwal settlements at the base of the valley. The path moves to one side of the settlement. The intersection of the cold water of the streams requires significant investment. Even though waters are not exceptionally profound, they are frosty. After each intersection, you have to give yourself a couple of moments to get sensation back in your feet.


After some time, the path moves out of the hill to uncover the principal perspectives on Kalapaki glades. Dazzling clear rivulets go through knolls making it a perfect spot to camp. Behind once more, is the intersection of two valleys. Enormous icy masses rule the intersection of the valley to one side. Ice dividers hang nearly to the base of the mountain. The setting is mammoth and huge in scope. The cascades are on the opposite side of the waterway that tumbles down a great many feet make the setting total. Soon, you will reach Kalapari.

In what will be the longest day of your trek, it is basic to start early. A 7 am start is perfect. Even though there are segments of snow on the day's trek, no uncommon hardware is required. The snow intersections are not hard to oversee if you have a trekking post close by. Follow the path that heads out of your campground to the moraines up ahead. The path winds through moraines and is unmistakably noticeable.


The path through the moraines heads towards the open finish of the valley. Once more, around forty minutes after the fact, jump on to another frigid icy mass, this time, diving from the mountain face to your right side. Strolling on the moraines gets you legitimately beneath the Kalapari top. Cross the ice sheet, veering marginally to one side, to see the path move to a tight opening in the valley that prompts the pass. Climb the little segment of a snow fix and jump on to the edge that takes you to the pass.


To your right side, an enormous lake nearly solidified, is in your view. There is a precarious stone segment which can be hard to haggle as you plummet. This is until you draw near to the opening of the valley. At the opening to the valley, you get your first perspective on what lies in store on the opposite side.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Tents
Altitude : 11,500 ft. via 14,469 ft.
Distance : 21 km

From Kaintal, take the path that embraces the side of the waterway. Stroll past a couple of Gujjar cottages to your left side. In practically no time, you'll get to an unmistakable stream to bounce over. There are a lot of such streams along the trek to Humpet. There truly isn't a need to fill water at the camps. Past the stream, the path opens up to a wide waterway bowl. All around the bowl are wide, rich, green knolls. Around 2 km long, it takes about a half-hour to cover the separation start to finish. (You'll stop every so often just to take in the magnificence.)


Climbing another mound carries you to a lot of Gujjar cottages on top. On the opposite side of the mountain, search for the pass opening of the Bobban Gully trail. This is the other, direct path from Sumdo. The course is shorter however progressively strenuous. Ponies, as well, can't take this path. Getting down from the protuberance carries you to the huge Sar prairies. Sar is generally the field where you camp on the off chance that you've slipped down the Bobban Gully course.


There are 7-8 streams to cross, for the most part toward the finish of each field. The greater part of these streams are anything but difficult to bounce over. Two of these streams, in any case, expect you to remove your shoes and swim over. The water, however, is never more than knee-profound, normally lower. Proceed on the Sar prairie as the path takes a wide bend to one side a northerly way. After the long Sar meadow, the bowls become shorter and all the more gravelly. Towards the north, the crossing point of two valleys out there comes into view. Humpet is at the base of the convergence on the left. It takes an additional two hours of intersection three different bowls and evading around the edge of protuberances to at last round the last edge to get to Humpet.

Distance : 19 km

Next, we move on to the lush green lands of Sukhnai. The day's trek is drastically not quite the same as the day sooner. From the Humpet, the trek plunges two valleys to the careful prairies and the especially wonderful town of Sukhnai.


Remove the path that heads from Humpet towards the finish of the valley a westerly way. The path at first trips the hills behind Humpet, before fixing at an edge. From this edge, you have away from of Gujjar cottages to your left side and the valley underneath. It is a restricted valley with the Kaintal Nala surging down in gorges at the extreme base. Silver birch trees come in to see.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Tents
Altitude : 9,199 ft.
Distance : 19 km

The path past Sukhnai gets incredibly pleasant. You are in a valley, with huge tracts of fields, ranches, and fields on either side. The Marwah stream cuts the valley on the left as it wanders its way towards the Chenab.


The valley is populated by towns every 5-6 km. The towns themselves are very pretty, nearly from another time. The path is currently more frequented by locals moving to start with one town then onto the next. Step onto the path as promptly toward the beginning of the day as could reasonably be expected. On the off chance that you have stayed outdoors close to Sukhnai, there are two streams to cross in a steady progression. On one of them, if the streams are water loaded, you'll maybe need to remove your shoes.
