The Khatling glacier is perched at an elevation of 4,600 metres in the Garhwal Himalayas of Uttarakhand. This flank glacier is encircled by snow clad peaks of the Jogin group (6,466 m), Sphetic Pristwar (6905m), Barte Kauter (6579m), Kirti Stambh (6902m) and Meru. The moraines on the side of the glaciers look like standing walls of gravel mud. The best time to visit this glacier is between the summer months of April to May and September to October.
How to Reach:
The travellers need to reach Ghuttu from where the trek to Khatling glaciers starts. One can easily reach Ghuttu by a motorable journey from Dehradun, Tehri, Mussoorie and Rishikesh. On reaching Ghuttu, one has to trek about 45 km and pass through tiny hamlets surrounded by thick Kharsao forests and lush green meadows. The Bhilangana Valley offers pristine spots for camping.
