Pindari Glacier

Pindari
The Pindari Glacier, in the Bageshwar district, falls in the Kumaon Himalayas and has lured mountaineers and trekkers since the last century. It is one of the most easily accessible of all the Himalayan glaciers. Pindari's rugged beauty offers a breathtaking sight, especially for the trekker who is in love with nature in all its pristine glory. The Pindari Glacier is an unsurpassable and an exhilaratinh experience.

It lies between the Nanda Devi and Nandakot peaks and terminates at an altitude of 3627mts. The Glacier is 5kms. long, the snout is about 6m high and 2.5m wide and above the snout, the glacier extends for about 3km in length and 300- 400m in width, between an altitudinal range of about 3600m to 5000m. The Pindari Glacier is located in the Pinder Valley between logitudes 79° 13'-80°02' E and latitudes 30* 15' N. It occupies an area of 339.39sq.kms. The valley is drained by the Pinder river that emerges from the Pindari Glacier. The river, in its initial course, flows through sedimentary rocks. Further to the south, it meanders through quarts schists. Granite is found in abundance in this area. The Pinder river has cut a gorge in thick glacial deposits upto nearly 10kms., resulting in the formation of spacious glacial terraces spread on both sides of the gorge. Further down, from Phurkia up to Khati, places enroute to the Pindari glacier, one comes across numerous waterfalls, hanging valleys and tremendous rolls cliffs as the one of at Dwali. One has to go by road upto Song which can be accessed from Almora, Bageshwar and Kathgodam and thereafter one has to trek 45kms. upto zero point (Pindari Glacier). The colour of Pindari Glacier is very white and at some places,spots of light blue and brown may also be seen.
