One of the very lesser known destinations for trekking in India, the Sapt Kund trek route lies in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. Situated at the height of about 5000 metres, at the Base of Nanda Ghunti, The Sapt Kund also known as The Seven Lakes is one of the most adventurous routes for trekking in the Himalayas. Though a bit taxing in nature, the diverse flora and fauna and scenic landscapes of the route makes this trek a worthy choice for trekking in Uttarakhand.
The trek routes passes through some of the most breath taking alpine pastures and offers the views of beautiful Himalayan peaks. The highlight of the trek would be the “Simbe Bugiyal”, which welcomes the visitors with the most beautiful blanket of flowers if chosen the right season. This almost unexplored trail carries the legend of Lord Shiva, who is believed to have called this place his home making it a sacred place for the Hindus.
The trail of Saptkund, offers something that few other treks in Himalayas can. The sparsely known trail offers the peace and serenity as very few trekkers venture there as well as the adventurous feel of exploring an almost unknown territory.
