Experience good and bad sides of mountains through Bagini Glacier Trek

Bagini Glacier Trek is basically a hike to the Chang Bang peak's base camp. It is, unfortunately, a treasure being missed out by maximum trekkers. Also, many trekking companies or agencies are not promoting it as widely as other Uttarakhand treks. With little moderate ascents, this trek is a blissful ride to the mountains adjacent to Nanda Devi peak. The thrilling Bagini Glacier adventure begins with a walk on a suspension bridge over Dhauliganga. The trek route is quite unique in a way that the major camping sites are sparsely populated high altitude villages. And the first camp is in the Ruing village. Famous for its scenic views this village will only create more excitement. Next village camping is in the very popular (in the Hindu mythology), the Dronagiri village. The route to this village is a bit tricky due to landslide prone area and narrow walk over the ridgeline. Houses made of rock and mud walls with wooden slopy ceilings are arranged on mountains forming a beautiful picture. It is surprising that how the villagers survive at 11,000 feet, away from rest of the world. While Dronagiri has a big place in the Ramayana, it has a bigger place in mountain observers for the clear views of Hathi and Ghora Parbats. September to October is the best time for these picturesque views. Another big attraction of Bagini trek is the bright moon rise behind the Dronagiri peak. Moving forward on the Dronagiri ridge you will be accompanied by Bagini stream. Vibrant flowers now become visible as you move towards the Langatoli meadow. It is the best place to rejuvenate after a strenuous walk around boulders. You...
