With charming hillside villages, spectacular Himalayan panoramas and fine paths, this journey on foot is a wonderful insight into life in the high mountain valleys. The snow-capped Himalayan peaks provide a stunning backdrop to the alpine meadows and forests of the Saryu Valley, while crossing through the sloping pastures to the astounding Pindar Valley, whose river draws its water from the great Pindari Glacier, you get a powerful sense of being up close to the peaks, which feel almost within touching distance.
