Overview

The Hiramani glacier is situated on Kumaun Himalayas at an altitude of 3,620 metre in the Ramganaga Valley. The glacier is surrounded by Bhanktya but you can notice the amazing view of peaks like Nanda Devi (7,848 m), Nanda Kot (6,861 m), and Trishul (7,120 m). There are a number of waterfalls and Sulphur springs originating around this glacier. The trail passes through pristine villages with strong local culture and ancient temples. These villages are rich in heritage from the Indo- Tibetan trade route and particularly the two villages of Gogina and Namik. The trail generally follows the Ramganga river through deep forests and rolling meadows .
