Why Dhumdar Kandi Pass Trek?
First recognized by James Baillie in 1815 as a pass which 'is very lofty and wild range to the north of Black Peak and Banderpunch and along which there is a very alarming road leading to remote parts of Rawaeen (upper Tons Valley)', the DhumdharKandi pass managed to keep its secrets till 1987 when a team from West Bengal crossed it successfully.
The pass connects Supin River valley end of trek Bhagirathi and In ancient times it is believed that local villagers,sankri , gangad , osla, traders and even invaders have used this pass as a shortcut to get into the remote ganga valley Valley. It is one of the unique treks where the glaciers on either side of the pass feed two different big rivers, the Bhagirathi and the Yamuna.

Key Points about this trek:

– Proper conditioning & training of body required
– Need proper gear & clothing for sub-zero temperatures
– Shoes are the single most important equipment
– High Altitude requires proper acclimatization

– Beautiful landscape so carry good photo gear (I couldn't carry my best equipment)
– Travel light (my backpack was heavy at about 12 kg)
– Keep an extra day in your itinerary for crossing the pass to account for bad weather
