LEVEL

The Trek Experience, Difficult

Welcome to Team – Har ki dun Protection & Mountaineering Association – Lamkhaga pass Trek, In Uttarakhand (India)

The Lamkhaga Pass connects north eastern Garhwal Himalayas and Himachal Pradesh .

Lamkhaga Pass is a fairly remote trek and is now regarded as the classic route from Gangotri to Kinnaur, which was first crossed by Marco Pallis in 1933. The beautiful route takes you through some of the most remote areas of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh, like the Jalandhari valley that is covered with flowers post monsoon.

The snow in the early season could impede your progress. Harsil is famous for Wilson’s Cottage built in 1864. Gangotri is a short drive from Harsil, while Chitkul is the last village in the Baspa valley. The trek can be done from either side. But the ascent from Chitkul side a bit steeper than that of the Harsil side. Rope fixing is needed on both sides.

Heavy snow to be expected on pre monsoon, whereas post monsoon makes way for lots of boulder hopping. A fantastic proposition to consider, anytime.

This money has to be paid to H.P.M.A office … (last moment arrangements are difficult and expensive).

Fitness:   

An high altitude trek in the Himalayas requires considerable fitness. Your body needs to train itself to process more work with lower levels of oxygen. Therefore, on treks, cardiovascular training is critically important. You need to be able to jog a distance of 4.5 km in 30 mins before start of the trek. Unable to do so can make your trek difficult. In addition, preparation of trek needs to include strength and flexibility training. Trekkers who have not adequately prepared may be asked to discontinue the trek at any point.

H.P.M.A is not responsible for any loss/damage of any of your equipment on the trek.


Doctors: At H.P.M.A ,
   

Safety of a trek comes & respect to wildlife first. You will experience it first hand on the slope. Your team is accompanied by experienced trek leaders, safety gears, high end trek equipment, high altitude first aid kits and most importantly the right information. As an initiative in this regard we want to encourage doctor trekkers to function as team doctors..
