Ralam Dhura Expedition

Date: 28 August – 9 September, 2021


The trek begins from Munsiyari, the fabled Kumaon town, reigned by the close Panchchuli peaks view. Winds its way into the Ralam Valley meadows strewn with sheep, flowers and wilderness.

Beyond Ralam village we have the first glacier crossing with a high ascent Yangchari base camp. That’s where the isolation begins. The next day we are crossing the Yangchari pass into the Chaudhara glacial arena. Spectacular ring of high peaks with a trek across the glacier to the hidden Ralam Dhura base camp next to the Chaudhara peak.

After crossing the Ralam Dhurra pass into the Darma valley which entails a strange long descent along the Nipakchung glacier. The return is through the remote Darma valley with a recently built road most of the way.
