Alternate trekking route to valley of flowers to be opened after 45 years
Chamoli: The Nanda Devi National Park administrative team has decided to re open an alternate trekking route to the valley of flowers. The Kunthkhal-Hanuman Chatti trekking route will again come back to life after being under a glacier since 1970. The 25 km long track cost about 1.5 crore to repair to make it usable for trekkers.
The new track takes about 17 hours on an average to complete. 11 km of this track is steep climb to an altitude of 4500 meters to Kunthkhal where trekkers can stay overnight. The remaining 14 km of the track is gentle slope that links to Hanuman Chatti at the Badrinath National Highway.
