Brief Description

Namik Glacier gets its name from Namik village, which means ‘a place where saline water spring’ is found. Namik Glacier is found in the Kumaon Himalayas at an altitude 3,600 metres in the Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand. Namik Glacier is not a very popular option thereby making it perfect for the solace you are looking for because it is situated right in the heart of Himalayas. Peaks of Nanda Devi (7,848 metres), Trishuli (7,120 metres) and Nanda Kot (6,861 metres) will be your ally. Namik Glacier is the source from where a number of waterfalls and sulphur springs originate. You can also savour the Indo-Tibetan culture as this was the ancient Indo-Tibetan trade route. The eternal beauty of Himalayas through unsoiled villages will put you in a trance. Note: Uttarakhand Tourism has announced Namik Glacier as the 'Trek of the year' for the year 2018, so we will be organising special batches in the month of June comprising of 25 people in a group.
