RISHIKUND - SATOPANTH TREKKING EXPEDITION

(Sep 09, 2017 to Sep 24, 2017)

Rishikund and Sajdhar Top are perhaps the best view points for Nanda Devi Sanctuary Peaks like majestic Nanda Devi and many more. It’s a very beautiful trek and will also be useful to acclimatize for Satopanth Lake Trek. Satopanth is one of the most sacred lakes as per Hindu Mythology. It is believed that Pandavas tried to go to Heaven via this route. It is very close to mighty Himalayan peaks like Neelkanth, Chaukhamba, Balakun etc. Once in lifetime opportunity for this combo trek. Don’t miss it.

This event is for registered STEP members only. If you're not a STEP member, you can become one by applying online here.
