Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: From Kathgodam to Lohajung

Distance: 215 kms

The base camp for this beautiful trek is Lohajung. Kathgodam, the nearest railway station connects it to India’s wide rail network. The station is just 25kms away from Nainital. Another popular city, Haldwani is 9 kms away from Kathgodam.

Once you’re at kathgodam, it will take around 8-10 hours to reach Lohajung. So, we suggest you reach Kathgodam by 7am so that the drive to Kathgodam is not hassled.

The journey from Kathgodam to Lohajung takes you through some beautiful locations like Bhimtal which is popular for its serene lake. You will also pass by some famous regions of Uttarakhand including Almora, Kausani and Baijnath. You may wish to take a break at Kausani to soak in the beauty of the Himalayan ranges. Shutterbugs, keep your cameras ready! The peaks you can spot from Kausani start with Kamet with Ghori Parvat, Hathi Parvat, Nandaghunti, Trishul, Mrigthuni, Maiktoli, Nanda Devi, Nanda Khat till Panchachuli group. The tea factory and a shawl woven by local artisans are renowned.

For money matters, you may take the risk of trusting the last ATM at Deval or be a little cautious and choose ATMs at Gwaldam. We also recommend buying necessary medicines from Gwaldam and Deval. (in case, you’ve missed out any while packing. From Deval, you’ll just take an hour to reach Lohajung, where scenery of splendid views like Nandaghunti is waiting for you, if you reach before it darkens.

Just like medicines, we highly recommend you carrying all the apparels, warm clothes that you may need at the trek. But just in case, you can pick jackets, hand gloves, caps, shoes etc. from a local store at Lohajung. Also note that mobile coverage cannot be relied upon in these regions of Himalayas.

Delving deeper in the mythology, Lohajung is the place where goddess parvati had a jung (fight) with the demon Lohasur. Literally translated, Lohajung means ‘ fight with Lohasur ’.


Day 2: From Lohajung to Bekaltal.

Altitude: 2,320 m to 3,010 m (6 km)
Time : 4-5 hours

At lohajung, we move upwards from Bisht General Stores on a well-marked stone trail. We move on to the upper region of Lohajung, through the beautiful trail of forests lined by a few houses.

Mandoli Village, will reveal itself after a short trek. While you’ll spot the Kail valley as you climb higher. Kail valley is marked by the union of Kail and Pindari rivers. Moving on, your visual guides would be the water pipes that supply water to Lohajung. Next comes Budla, a cluster of a few homes, which are usually lined with Rhododendron trees. If you choose to trek in Feb or March, you’ll spot these trees in full bloom.

As you reach approx 2590 metres, you’ll cross link-gaad, a 10 metre bridge that helps trekkers cross the stream. Its best to take a breather at Begum, a beautiful location that offers splendid views of Navali Bugyal. The views will definitely relieve you off the tiredness.

Once you leave Begum, it should take you just 10-15 minutes before you reach another stream and another hours walk will bring you to Gujrani stream. Just walk for 70 minute more and you’ll reach Bekaltal. The beauty of this trek can’t be described in words. Amidst thick oak forests, the lake gleams peacefully in summer, while in winter, it is frozen. Our Day 2 ends at camping near a beautiful lake, Khopdaliya.


Day 3: Bekaltal to Khabekhal (or Brahmatal).

Altitude: 3,010 m to 3,273 m (2.5km)
Time : 3-4 hours

In the Himalayas, weather decides your trail and campsites. Today, you may decide to trek till the serence Brahmtal lake or camp at Khabekhal. In case of snow showers, you might take 3-4 hours to reach Khabekhal.

When you begin at Bekaltal for Khabekhal, you will pass by a forest of oak trees for a prolonged one hour. The walk will take you to Telandi. If Khabekhal is your destination, continue walking and take a trail that descends towards right. Landmark: a house without any roof.


Day 4: Khabekhal to Daldum via Brahmatal Peak (3,846 m).

Altitude: 3,270 to 2,850 m
Time : 7 hours, 5 km

This day, choose to climb to Brahmtal. You may choose to carry your daypack or your back pack and return to the campsite at Daldum. A trek of almost an hour will take you to Chota Jhandidar. Pass through Choda and Bada Jhandidar to reach Brahmtal. It’s a curvy trail sandwiched between valleys on either side. 2.5 to 3 hours is all you need to reach Brahmtal top. En route, don’t miss out on the splendour of the mighty Himalayas, esp. Mt. Trishul and Nandaghunti. Clear skies will let you indulge in a fascinating view of the Himalayas. Daldum, the campsite for the day is just 3 hours away from the peak, with a trail passing through forests.


Day 5: From Daldum to Lohajung.

Altitude: 2,850 m to 2,325 m

FAQ

Risk & Respond

High Altitude Treks: Risk and Response A high altitude trek calls for an adventurous attitude, but embarking on an adventurous trip without calculating the risks is utter stupidity. That’s why we have listed a few risks and the response planned by TTH to minimise or address the risks in the best possible way.


Risk: Altitude Before you start the trek, it is important to understand the implications of high altitude on your body. Be aware of symptoms of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) like mild headache, nausea and general discomfort.

Response: If you feel any of these symptoms, inform the trek leader on priority and follow his instructions. Every campsite has as stretcher, fully equipped first aid kit, oxygen cylinders to address the situation.


Risk: Weather Weather is unpredictable in the Himalayas. Though we are always observant about the changing weather, no one can guarantee a snowfall, rain or Sun. Do understand that your security is of utmost importance to us and we will not proceed any further from the campsite if the weather is not favourable.

Response: The decision of the Trek Leaders and Guides to proceed or wait for the weather to get better will be final.


Risk: Injuries Often, while trekking over difficult terrains, you might have minor injuries like leg sprain, bruises etc. Serious injuries like fractures or major cuts are very rare.

Response: All our Trek Leaders are Certified Wilderness First Aid responders. They are trained to handle emergencies and can tackle minor injuries with a well-equipped first aid kit. In case of serious injuries, the patient is carried on a stretcher to the nearest road-head and is led to nearest medical centre.


Risk: Lack of communication devices In the remote areas of the Himalayas, mobile networks do not reach. On a trek, one is cut off from the world of calls, SMSs or watsapps.

Response: We rely on walkie-talkies and runners to communicate between the campsites and the base camps.

TTH group is most co-operative with us. It’s my first trek. So I was not aware about the trek, and also my physical condition was not co-operative. That’s why I cannot go to the summit point. But I enjoy it very much. Hope for the next time.
