Ralam Dhura Expedition

Trek Brief

Date: 07-18 sept/18

The trek begins from Munsiyari, the fabled Kumaon town, reigned by the close Panchchuli peaks view. Winds its way into the Ralam Valley meadows strewn with sheep, flowers, and wilderness. Beyond Ralam village we have the first glacier crossing with a high ascent Yankchuri base camp. That’s where the isolation begins. The next day we are crossing the Yankchuri pass into the Chaudhara glacial arena. Spectacular ring of high peaks with a trek across the glacier to the hidden Ralam Dhurra base camp next to the Chaudhara peak. After crossing the Ralam Dhurra pass into the Darma valley which entails a strange long descent along the Nipakchung glacier. The return is through the remote Drama valley with a recently built road most of the way.
