About Panwali Kantha Trek

Panwali Kantha is a nice trek route that remains with different beauties in various seasons. Excellent flowery view is there in the winters, while the extraordinary panoramic snow white beauty can be experienced in the winters. Since the altitude of the place is not that much, it is going to give you a perfect experience for the next treks. Excellent green grasses and meadows of alpine and deodar are there for you in the monsoon, whereas the hilly surface laments itself with snow envelop in winter to give your eyes a different type of pleasure. This is the trek spot, where routes are not definite. You can reach the place from Ghuttu and from Sonprayag too. If you start it from Ghuttu, the route will end at Triyugi Narayan. However, excessive snowfall in the route during winter indicates to avoid this route for that time.

The trek route is a short one and you will not have to prepare yourself so essentially, if the snow layer is average. There is need to plan a second way. Heavy snow fall can block the routes at any time; a contingency plan can be called into action at times. The valley region is having excellent flowery show for you with reddish and pinkish rhododendrons, blooming at all sides. April and May are two ideal months, where the flowery show can be seen, just after the snow layer melts down, washing the valley with fresh mineral water. The superb view of the Greater Himalayan peaks is a bonus gift from nature for you. In fact, a part of this route is to be covered, while trekking from Gangotri to Kedarnath. The complete view of Kedarnath, Badrinath and even Gangotri with Yamunotri in this trek route will generate a feeling in your heart that nature is showing her best four kids. Snow peaks of Thalay Sagar, Kirti Stambh, Kedar Dome, Neelkanth and Meru peeps behind the four best children, saying you that the full family is there, awaiting to pay you their homage.

In the monsoon, you will find the lush Bugyals, excellently green. The greenery is so prominent in the hue that you will feel that no other colors are reaching your eyes. Birds and multiple colored flowers are ready to make the environment even more charming and enthusiastic. The distant white peaks under the blue sky will seem to you as a picture drawn by your favorite artist over the canvas. From April to November, the trek becomes a little more challenging with snow covering the ridges in Kyunkhola pass. From June to September, winter trek at the route is best. Fauna in the land is also great. You must have to be lucky to find the regular habitats of the place. Himalayan Bears, Ghoral and Rare-musk deer are the most renowned among them. You will listen from the local people that the land is the wedding place of Lord Shiva and Devi Parvati. Looking at the outside solace, you will not be able to deny that in your mind even.
