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 Balati Bend located on Munsiyari - Thal Road. 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.

There are no shacks, stalls on the trek route and the tourists are advised to carry their water bottle and snacks for the route. You may however get maggi, chips and water at the camping site which comes after the 4 km trek from Khaliya Dwar - the starting point of the trek.

You can also stay in Munsiyari and visit Khalia top as well. Check Hotels in Munsiyari.
