Day 1: Reaching to the Hanuman Chatti
Begin your first day by arriving at Hanuman Chatti, the Gulabi Kantha Trek’s base camp. Hanuman Chatti is the starting point for more than seven to eight treks, including Fachu Kandi pass, Bali pass trek, and others, and is also an important part of the Char- Dham pilgrimage.
Before the trek, you’ll be updated on the plans and other crucial information. After the trek, you will go to the Holy Shrine Yamunotri Temple on your own dime. The temple is located five kilometers from Janki Chatti and is open from April to May and closed from October to November. Following that, you’ll have an organic meal and be able to watch the bonfire. To make your journey even more enjoyable, you will engage in amusing and meaningful discussions with your travel companions.
Day 2: Trekking towards Seema Thatch
Start your second day of Gulabi Kantha Trek with a delicious breakfast and then pack your bags for the ten-kilometer trek to Seema Thatch. On the expedition, you’ll hike across a thick carpet of pine and maple leaves as well as dense woodland, where you’ll be able to admire nature’s beauty.
Lunch will be served until you arrive in Kandola (2:00 pm). After lunch, you’ll resume your trip until 4:00 p.m., when you’ll arrive at Seema thatch.
