Panwali Kantha Trek is one of the less frequented high altitude meadows of Garhwal Himalayas. Apart from its exhilarating landscape, it is also known for a variety of flowering herbs. Not only that; during months of April and May, the trail is decked with red and pink rhododendrons.
However, a huge bonus of the trek is that, it offers few of the most captivating views of Himalayan ranges. You get to see rarest views of the complete range of Yumnotri- Gangotri- Kedarnath- Badrinath mountain peaks. Prominent snow peaks like Thalay Sagar, Meru, Kirti Stambh, Kedar Dome, Kedarnath, Chaukhambha, Nilkanth, etc. are all visible during the trek. These look especially beautiful at sunset from Panwali Kantha.
