Panwali Kantha Trek  In Uttarakhand, India

Panwali kantha is located between the Gangotri and Sri Kedarnath axis. Hence it can easily be reached from both Gangotri side and Sri Kedarnath side. From Gangotri side the trek starts from uttarkashi and from Sri Kedarnath side it starts from Triyuginarain.Panwali Kantha has many beautiful bygyals (Meadows) along this  trekking route.

The pretty and peaceful Panwali kantha bugyals lie at far flung heights, ranging from 2745 meter to 3970 meter  on the old pilgrim trail from Gangotri to Sri Kedarnath.  They are open grasslands and undulating slopes studded with patches of forests.  With the advent of summer, the snows melt and the flowers and herbs blossom forth to carpet the Panwali kantha bugyal with a riot of colors.
