Pindari Glacier
Report By: Samuel Arthur & Gurmeet Singh (Scout) : E-Mail Author

My association with scouts And Guides started when I met their incharge ,Mr. Gurmeet Singh .Before that I had been climbing and trekking mostly solo. But teaching mountain techniques to young Scouts was a different experience and now we have come long way and have created Junior and senior level of expeditions. Some have completed various courses of adventure and very soon we will start climbing in Himalayas. Here I am enclosing our recent adventure in Himalayas. Pindari Glacier trek. We reached Kathgodam by train and from there we used bus to reach BAGESHWAR . From here we took jeeps and landed at Sang around 1.30 PM. , a village from where trek starts. During our travel ,we encountered heavy land sliding . Loharklhet is just Three Kms. from Sang.

DHAKURI PASS : We started early morning after breakfast.Very soon we were in Rhododendron forest.It is steep climb of five Kms. and a good test of stamina and determination.It is wild life active area. stories of bear and Leopards,scenic view of waterfalls enough to create a memory which haunts.This is most challenging and toughest leg of this trek.

DHAKURI-KHATI : The trek is descending and goes through village outskirts.One can see valley life ,cultivation and ofcourse jungle is there....Dhakuri is a pasture and state Govt. has developed Tourist bunglows..bookings can be obtained from Bageshwar...by phone also...contact Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam ofiice.Otherwise forest rest house is there..and if still you did not get accomodation..pitch your tent and in case unavailablity...talk to tea shop wala...NO PROBLEM !!

KHATI -DWALI : Khati is well known village.Actuallt this whole trek is very old and its history goes back to Victorian era. Lord Curzon was an adventure loving personality and due to his this passion...all trek were created for him and his men.Khati to Dwali trek is slightly upwards..going zig zag on mountain ridges..gaining gradual hight.For a moderate walker ..it is 3-4 Hrs. trek.

DWALI-FURKIA : Here is greatest challenge of the trek...usually bridge is washed away and trekker has to cross over flooded stream by doing some circus like act.It need fearless mind,and well balanced instincts. I have gone through one of the toughest rescue..where a little bit of security was not available and it was all game of courage and balance.A slight off balance on a wet &slippery log and was sure death.

FURKIA-ZERO POINT & BACK : Reaching Furkia ,and all you observe is sudden impact of high altitude.There are few causalities been reported due to high altitude sickness and few students from Scouts Guides had also experienced this impact,walking for Zero point is all walking into clouds and some of rare photographic scenes can be visualized here. Zero point is where Pinder Glacier starts but as trekker can not go ahead due to heavy crevasses area,it is point from where one can witness majestically of Greater Himalayas.
