Tour Details

The famous Milam glacier trek through the Johar valley changed substantially after the Uttarakhand floods of June 2013, especially in the lower Goriganga valley – from the current Milam trail head at Chillamdhar, until Rairgari. Beyond Rairgari the trail more or less corresponds to the earlier trail, but has been rendered more difficult because of innumerable ascents and descents to skirt landslips and washouts, and to negotiate diversions because of flood damage.

Despite the ravages of the floods, and the inevitability that the valley will eventually be connected by a road, it is a fascinating and compelling journey into a remote valley full of stories of flourishing Indo-Tibetan trade that ended ‘cold’ after the 1962 conflict between China and India. Abandoned ghost villages, fabulous terrain, views of the great Nanda Devi and the Milam glacier beckon the trekker into a journey through landscapes and time.
