About Neelkanath Peak Base Trek

A major peak of the Garhwal Himalaya, Mt. Neelkanth stands at 6507m. It is a pyramidical-shaped peak that is popularly known as the 'Garhwal Queen'. This snow-clad mountain peak rising just above the Badrinath Temple is indeed one of the most stunning summits in the Garhwal Himalaya. The Satopanth Glacier is on the northwest side of Neelkanth, the Panpatia Glacier remains on the southwest side and feeds Khirao Ganga, a small that runs under the south side of the peak. A handful of successful ascents have been reported on Mt. Neelkanth, the first climb from its western ridge was attempted in 1993 by two British Climbers. The expedition is a D+/TD- and requires Scottish grade II and III mixed climbing.

Weather in mountains is completely unpredictable and hence one must remain prepared for all of its kind. Usually, nights are cold in comparison to days and hence travelers are suggested to take their extra warm clothes with them. Also, it depends on seasons too.
