Is Bamsarukhal Trek famous or worth going for?

Bamsarukhal is an absolute trek that should be a very strong contender for Roopkund and Rupin Pass. We pass through 02 alpine lakes Dodi Tal and Bamsaru Tal, we cross Darwa Pass at 4000mts and follow ridge and alpine meadows to reach Bingad, at the foot of Hanuman Ganga, originating from the glaciers of Banderpunch Peak. We climb the astounding ridge of Bamsarukhal to descend on the largest and highest meadow of Uttarakhand at Gidara Bugyal. It just keeps on getting better with every day of the trek and it gets more elusive and virgin as we venture deeper into this exploratory trail.
