The Khaliya Top Trek
The Khaliya Top is one of the popular treks as the trekkers can savour the awe-inspiring views of the Panchachuli and Nanda Devi Range. The Khaliya Top can be easily approached by covering an easy gradient of 6 km from Balanti Farm. This trek allows the hikers to see the snowline in early summer. If you are a keen animal photographer then you may find yourself in luck as this place is a home to varied bird and animals species such as Monal, Ghurar, Kakar, yellow fronted marten and Baral (mountain goat). Spring season is the best time for this trek as the rhododendrons bloom in the region, making the jungle fiery red. The scent of the dwindling pines, old oaks, spruce and cypress will mesmerise you.
