Thus, while taking on the Pindari Trek, you can be assured that the long trail will offer breathtaking experiences of the snow-clad peaks, cascading waterfalls, the sacred river, spouting streams, rich flora and fauna.
The Pindari Glacier flows to the south for about 3 km, giving rise to the Pindari River that meets river Alakananda at the convergence of Karnaprayag in the Garhwal district.
