do something different, it’s worth it
See and experience what it takes to traverse and live in the high altitude of the Garhwal Himalayas to arrive a pristine clear Lake at the height of 11,500 feet. If you’re lucky, there might even be snow! End the days setting up campsites above the clouds.!
lead and take ownership
Start with an intensive session to plan out everything needed for the coming days. From menus, ration and utensils to contingency food plans. Divide and share the load of supplies (‘khachchars’ help with the big stuff). As the days progress, instructors take a step back as the group takes initiative. Learn to work as a team—look out for each other, learn to be considerate and share the responsibilities of cooking, cleaning, firewood collection and resource management.
Day 2 – Arrival at LETS Camp Tons by breakfast. Settle in and get to know your instructors and other participants. Tent pitching and basic camping skills.
Day 3 – ACCLIMATIZE AND PLAN: A short but strenuous trek helps partic- ipants prepare for the challenge. After returning to the camp the group prepares and packs for the expedition. Post lunch the group will go for another short trek. Evening is spent relaxing around the bonfire.
Day 4 – EXPEDITION ON Depart early morning for Taluka (2 hours) from the Tons camp. The trek begins from here. Trek through rocky terrain and meadows to reach Seema (8,780 feet and pitch tents to set-up camp. First night under the stars! (approx. 12km trekking)
Day 5 – TREKKING UP Get up early morning to dismantle the camp and pack up. Trek continues to Debsu Thach (approx. 10 km trekking)
Day 6 – LAKE SIDE CAMPING You continue trekking to reach the Ruinsara Tal (11480 feet). From Ruinsara to the south-west is Yamuna Kanta, the pass which takes you to Yamunotri. To the east is the majestic Ban- derpoonch Peak. Walking about south-east from the lake brings you to Kiarkoti with the view of over Swargarohini Range to the north. We pitch tents, set up camp and take part in activities around camp in the evening (8 Km trekking).
