Perched at 14, 700 ft., for mountaineering enthusiasts, the peak offers a perfect test of non-technical climbing skills. Though this Uttarakhand trek is accessible all though the year, it is the winter snow that makes it truly unsurpassable. If thrill is directly proportionate to the gauge of challenge, Pangarchulla Peak trek in the winters would be a journey brave hearts just cannot afford to miss!

The trek to Pangarchulla- the chimney peak is full of the riches of Himalayan grandeur; here is what to look forward to—

 

  • A Variety of Flora and Fauna- Until the snowline starts; the track will be strewn with blood-red rhododendrons. Plenty of Oaks, silver birch, blue pine, and bhojpatra- the bark of which is known to source papyrus, will be lining the way. Commonly found wildlife here consists of—musk deer, black bear, and Himalayan tahr. 
  • A Ridge Climb on Summit Day- A steep ridge taking you on an ascent to the peak on summit day is a painstaking but highly gratifying feature of this trek. The climb becomes arduous and sated with adrenalin rush. The overwhelming snow on the trail will add to this incomparable feeling of exploring the unsurpassable. 
  • Unbound Snow on Risk-Free Slopes- The one dominant characteristic of your winter adventure to the Pangarchulla Peak will be the treat of snow. In most parts on the last lap of the climb, the slopes covered in powdery snow will offer you an ascent without the risk of a deathly fall, by providing a cushioning. These gently curving inclines have the typical quality of skiing slopes. It is ideal for you to enjoy the delights of a snow saturated wintry Himalaya sans the risk of tumbling over fatally. It is also ideal for your enjoyment if you happen to have experience in skiing.
