Gupt Khal Trek in Uttarakhand Himalayas
Gupt Khal Trek which is in the Chamoli district ofUttarakhand Himalayasis at a height of 5,807 meters. These treks are considered very special because these treks are a fantastic expedition in themselves; they are very popular and secret trek in the Himalayas.
Here we have the meaning of the Gupt, about which there is not much information and the Khal means the drain, which leaves you from one end to the other boundary or direction.
I would also like to tell you that so far, my elder brother Mr. Vinod Panwar has done Gupt Khal trek 05 times, and Pradeep from Uttarkashi, and Porters and Cook, etc.
Gupt Khal trek is a very difficult to trek in Uttarakhand, only good and knowledgeable trekkers can do this trek, which has knowledge of high treks, Gupta Khal.
The Gupt Khal trek can be done from two places on a special note which are as follows:
The trek traverses the twin goes of Bhyundar Khal and Gupt Khal. One needs to arrange the morraines and icy masses, for example, Gauri icy mass, Rataban Glacier, Tipra Glacier, Bankund Glacier, Nilgir icy mass and Nakthani icy mass. Crucial learning of mountaineering is an absolute necessity for this trek. At specific spots rope must be fixed to cross profound precipices. The trek offers close and great perspectives on Nilkantha, Hathi, Nilgiri, Rataban, Kamet and Mana tops.
These routes from Via Valley of Flowers, which originate in Mana Village, are a bit difficult but you can also go this route.
Joshimath via Ghamsali Village The route discovered by Mr. Vinod Panwar, these routes are good and worth thinking about.
Why Gupt Khal trek makes it difficult for people without experience?
It is said that this is mentioned by Mr. Frank Smyth in his book ‘Valley of Flowers’.
From the Valley of Flowers, you trek crosses the twin passes of Bhuindar Khal Trek and Gupt Khal Trek. From here you will also see the mountain range of Himalayas and you have to cross all the glaciers in this trek like Gauri Glacier, and Ratan Glacier, and Tipra Glacier, Bankund Glacier, Nilgiri Glacier, and Nakhtani Glacier.
This trek is difficult as well as secret, and for this trek and expedition you must have the experience, basic knowledge of your previous mountaineering becomes necessary for this trek. In some Gupt Khal trek, at some places, deep cracks will be broken glaciers and technical equipment will be needed to cross this trek. From this trek, you will see the high altitudes like Shri Neelkanth Peak, Elephant Peak, Nilgiri Peak, Ratan Peak and, Kamet The peaks will be closely visible and offer spectacular views.
Note: – Whenever you do this trek, Do it with the local people here or with experienced people like us who are local here. Whoever can help you from the local here, no one else can give you, and it will be useful for you all the time. This is why we have to say that sometimes there are seasonal changes in nature, for which we all have to be ready, this is the law of adventure.
