Urgam is a beautiful valley surrounded with villages and organized vegetation. Start off early in the morning and trek towards Kalpeshwar from Urgam.

After crossing the village the trail goes through beautiful terrace fields and a couple of shepherd huts.

The altitude gradually increases as you climb up the trail but there is no steep climb involved. After trekking for 3 hours, you’ll reach a pass which will open up the view of other side of the valley. The trail will be followed with sharp descent there on. Rest for a while in a village you come across then trek further down to the bridge. As soon as you cross the bridge, you’ll see a temple. Dumak is another 1hour away from this place.

The remaining distance of the trek is mainly uphill steep climb. The trail passes through Toli Bugyal a nice but slightly creepy looking campsite. There is Toli Tal at Toli Bugyal but its water is not worth drinking or cooking. Toli Bugyal is situated at an altitude of 2850mts above sea level. Rest here for lunch then proceed towards Panar Bugyal.

Another 3 hours of steep climb through virgin forest opens up at Panar Bugyal. This small yet gorgeous meadow is situated at an elevation of 3400mts above sea level. This is the most beautiful campsite of the entire trek.

Day 4 : Panar – Rudranath

Trek7 kmsAltitude3600 mtsStayCamps

This is probably the most rewarding day of this entire trekking stretch. 15 minutes into the trek and the Himalayas on the left will greet you with open arms. This is followed with a narrow ridge that leads to highest point of the trek, Pitradhar (4000 mts). You’ll see bells and prayer flags hanging at a small temple known as Pitradhar. The trail is mostly downhill from this point and passes through Panch Dhara. Since there is very limited camping ground at Rudranath, most people try and trek back to Panar on same day. Rudranath is a very unique place to be at and it is surrounded by scenic vistas. It is situated at an altitude of 3600 mts above sea level.
