Max report from 13,622 feet above sea level

One of the longest days of our trek requiring an early start to Kali Ghati – the top of Danda Dhaar (12,800 ft.). From here - a 360-degree view of the Himalayas. More climbing brought us past massive waterfalls – a result of some extraordinary snow-falls during the winter.

A place of breathtaking scenery and “the Orchard of Parvati, consort of Lord Shiva." Camp just below the holy Shrikhand Mountain. Nerves about the next day ahead and high altitude (13,622 feet) meant a night of fitful sleep.
