Swargarohini Peak

Situated in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand, Swargarohini is a mountain massif in the Bandarpunch range of Garhwal Himalayas. The massif contains a total of four peaks. While not particularly high by Himalayan standards, and not the highest in the Bandarpunch range, Swargarohini I is notable for its dramatic terrain and topography and consists of two peaks: eastern summit and the western summit.

After numerous failed attempts to climb this peak, Swargarohini 1 was first conquered in 1974 when Charles Clarke (England); Dilsher Singh Virk, Peter Fuhrman and Bruce MacKinnon (Canada); and Mohan Singh and Rattan Singh (India) made the first ascent of the west summit of Swargarohini I, ascending from the west side.    



The nearest motorable route to Swargarohini is from Badrinath. Closest city which is well connected to other Indian cities is Haridwar. The route to Swargarohini is as follows: Badrinath – Mana – Lakshmiban – Chakrathirth – Sathopanth Tal – Swargarohini Base Camp.
