Bagini Glacier runs down northwards from Changabang & Trishuli peaks (in North-West rim of Nanda-Devi Sanctuary) and then the Bagini melt river turns westwards where it is joined by Dunagiri Glacier waters running down from Purbi-Dronagiri ridge. Further west, it is joined by the Lampak stream and finally flows into the Dhauli-Ganga, just north of Jumma Village.
We reached Jumma Village by Max-Jeep from Joshimath on 14th June 2011 and then trekked via Ruing & Dronagiri Villages and along the Bagini Glacier to finally stare, in awe, at the snow peaks of Rishi-Pahad, Hardeol, Kanakha, Changbang and Trisuli Peaks.
