Published on 21 October, 2015 at 4:41 pm By

SS Rasaily, director, Nanda Devi Biosphere, said:

“The Kunthkhal-Hanuman Chatti trek route was lying closed since 1970 as people began opting for the much easier route from Ghanghariya to approach the valley.”

The government decided to re-open the route after they felt that there was a need for an alternate route to evict people in case a disaster like the Kedarnath floods strikes the region again.

Also, the new trail is an exciting option for adventure lovers and will boost the tourism there.



 

“The 15-km route is dotted with glaciers, gorges and rivers. The ideal time to trek here is from July to October during which nature lovers can spot a variety of flora and fauna,” said Chandresh Joshi, divisional forest officer of Joshimath.

He added that the exquisite Brahm Kamal flower, which is found at an elevation of over 4500 meters above sea level, can be seen flowering on this trail.

Besides Kunthkhal, the forest department is also beginning to promote a number of other forgotten treks close to the Valley of Flowers such as the trails leading to the Chanab Valley, Kagbhushandi Lake, Dronagiri Parvat etc.
