Pindari Glacier ( Zero Point ) in Bageshwar
The Kumaon region of Uttrakhand, endowed with abundant natural beauty, has long drawn trekkers from all over the world. For many years, the area has provided the best bait in the form of getaways to adventure seekers, to which no trekker on this planet can say no. The journey to Pindari Glacier is one such hiking track that will take you through stunning landscapes, snow-clad glaciers, and remote settlements of the Kumaon region that you may have only seen in fairy tales and will stay with you for life!
The best aspect of the Pindari Glacier walking trail is that it does not challenge your endurance at every level; it is mostly smooth. But don’t expect it to be easy because the level of difficulty can sometimes be so high that trekkers are forced to leave their comfort zone. The trail becomes difficult as it crosses steep ranges, spider walls, and creeks. The heavenly beauty of the last point, or Zero Point, will make you forget all your troubles.
Your journey to this Himalayan storehouse, Pindari Glacier, begins in Loharkhet, a little settlement 20 kilometers from Bageshwar. After passing through remote areas such as Dhakuri, Dwali, and Phurkia, you will arrive at the trek’s final objective, Zero Point. Trails leading to the glacier and through rhododendron forests traverse the southern wilderness of the Nanda Devi Sanctuary, providing spectacular views of peaks such as Panwali Dwar (6,683m) and Maiktoli (6,803m).
