It is one of the rare summit treks in India which is difficult yet moderate, it is the best summit trek to start if you have trained yourself to trek moderate ones the next step should be Pangarchulla. 30-45 days of training should suffice before you embark on a summit trek such as this.

How to reach

The trek is five (5) days but with a road trip from Rishikesh to Auli where the trek starts as per the original and old itinerary, it would be seven (7) days round trip from Rishikesh. These seven (7) days could be a life-changing experience. Pangarchulla is part of the Nanda Devi national park circuit. The best way to reach the peak summit is via Dhak village, earlier people used to go via Auli. The Auli route makes the summit look too big on the climber due to its size, and usually, the trekkers were demoralized, by going via Dhak village the entire summit is behind the trekkers' back due to the round way, so it is easier and morale-boosting for the climber. It is all mind games, but it works with the trekkers.
