SS Rasaily, director, Nanda Devi Biosphere, said “The Kunthkhal-Hanuman Chatti trek route was since 1970 as people were using the much easier route from Ghangaria to Valley of Flowers. Because it was lying unused, the trek trail soon became overgrown with dense vegetation. During the recent disaster in Kedarnath, a need was felt for an alternate route which could be used to rescue people. This route is suitable for this purpose.”

Badrinath is about 10 km from Hanuman Chatti. People can trek to Kunthkhal and Ghangaria to get back to civilization. According to officials people can go for this trek as it offers a lot of natural beauty.

“The 15 km route is spotted with gorges, glaciers and rivers. The ideal time to trek here is from July to October. You can also see the Brahamkamal flower on this trail which is found over the elevation of 4500 meter.

      • Hello, want to know the exact route. As you have mentioned 2-3 routes. Another question is can we go to Manimahesh trek from Valley of Flowers. Is it in the same direction or different. Please reply.

        • Avatar for Devkant Sangwan Devkant Sangwan says:

          Hello Manisha Ji,
          This is the new route. Earlier route is from Govindghat to Ghangaria and from there to Valley of Flowers. Please check the itinerary on Valley of Flowers trek itinerary. Mani Mahesh is in Himachal and Valley of Flowers is in Uttarakhand. They are not in the same direction.
