River Pindar originates from this Glacier and flows down to confluence into the river Alaknanda. The trekking route to the glacier traverses along the southern wilderness of the Nanda Devi Sanctuary offering some beautiful views of peaks like Panwali Dwar (6683m) and Maiktoli(6803m). A trek to the Pindari Glacier is a “soft adventure” experience and well within the capacity of any trekker who is amply rewarded by the magnificence and grandeur of the towering Himalayas.The trail to reach the glacier crosses the villages of Saung, Loharkhet, crosses over the Dhakuri Pass, continues onto Khati village (the last inhabited village on the trail), Dwali, Phurkia and finally Zero Point, Pindar, the end of the trail. Though most of the trail is along the banks of the Pindari River, the river is mostly hidden until after Khati.#pindari glacier District: Bageshwar #Pindari Glacier #trek is the most famous trekking trails in #Kumaon #Himalayas, #Uttarakhand.
