You will have to start the expedition from Gangotri. Cross two passes and you will get the glance of the snow laminated peaks. The valleys that you will find in this route are excellently steep and the scenic beauty all around is really draped with the best splendor of nature. Starting from the journey, you will have to reach Yamunotri, after crossing the passes and valleys. Dhumdhar Kandi Pass is having excellent lush woods and meadows, filled with alpine and deodar. Kyarkoti is the last point of the extension of this lush forest. You will find Mother Nature in her raw beauty. The grazing land at the side is outstanding in beauty. The beauty you will find is panoramic for eyes, but that is not enough – you will feel a homely care from nature Goddess. Excellent topography and outstanding landscape view of the place is extraordinarily enchanting. The seasonal flowers attached with it make background of the place even more energetic and exotic.
The adventurous journey starts from Gangotri and elongates to Kyarkoti. The entire route will cover the Yamunotri. Birch forest and other snow embedded beauty of the path indicate eternal love and compassion of nature Mother for her toddlers. This is regarded to be one of the toughest trek routes in entire Garhwal routes. Still now you have seen the Kalanag Mountain peeping you from different angles. Now you will have to cross the base of that giant. However, nature is always there to assist you with her charming smile and young beauty embedded in immense compassion. Waterfalls of the route of Ruinsara Tal are also to be crossed here, for the route. This makes the route so special and tough.
The full route is touching with so many holy spots, that myths will overload your notebook. Stories of Gangotri, Yamunotri and of the lakes are such big and rich, that you will find no space to write the natural beauties in your notes.
