The 38-km Trek Starts From Rishikesh

It is part of the Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve, which has also been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. To start the 38-km trek, you need to start your journey from Rishikesh. It takes 11 hours, by road, to get here. We would suggest that you take some rest before starting your journey. The weather might be most apt, and the bloom at its prime, but exhaustion will ruin it all. Take your time and make the most of your first trip post lockdown.
