The Pindari Glacier proudly sits atop the Kumaon Himalayas in Uttarakhand state. This glacier is situated to the southeast of the enchanting sister peaks, Nanda Devi and Nanda Kot. The melted ice water of the glacier flows to the south for a short distance of 3km. The glacier is about 0.25 km in breadth and gives rise to the Pindar River, which meets Alaknanda at Karnaprayag in the Garhwal division of the Himalayas.
How to Reach:
The 90 km trek to Pindari Glacier crosses the quaint villages of Saung, Loharkhet. Then it passes through Dhakuri Pass and continues onto Khati village, Dwali, Phurkia and Zero Point (Pindar). Even though, most of the trail is along the banks of Pindar River still, the river is almost hidden until one reaches Khati, which is the last inhabited village on the way to the glacier.
