Brijganga Dhura

This trek takes you through a few parts of the old trading route to Tibet following the Gori Ganga River. It remains one of the less frequented routes connecting the Ralam valley to Johar valley. From the road head, beyond Munsiyari, one follows a well- defined trail along a narrow valley to the village of Milam. We cross the 4666 meters pass known as Brij-Ganga Dhura & enter the Ralam valley. Enroute, one gets magnificent views of peaks like Nanda Devi, Suitilla, Rajrambha, Chaudhara & many more. We will complete almost a circuit trek to Munsyari.
