PanPatia col Trek
The Panpatia Col Trek is a challenging and adventurous trek in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. It is considered one of the lesser-known and less-frequented treks in the region, offering a truly off-the-beaten-path experience for trekkers.
The trek connects two significant Hindu pilgrimage sites, Badrinath and Kedarnath, through the high-altitude Panpatia Col, which stands at an elevation of approximately 17,257 feet (5,250 meters). The trek usually takes around 10-12 days to complete, covering a total distance of approximately 90-100 kilometers.
The trek route takes you through breathtaking landscapes, including lush green meadows, dense forests, glacial moraines, and snow-capped peaks. It is essential to have prior trekking experience and be physically fit to undertake this challenging trek due to its remote and strenuous nature.
The best time to attempt the Panpatia Col Trek is during the summer months, from May to June, and then again in the post-monsoon season from September to October. During these periods, the weather is relatively stable and the trails are more accessible.
Since the trek involves crossing high-altitude passes, it is essential to be well-prepared with the right gear and clothing to tackle the varying weather conditions. Additionally, it is advisable to go with a knowledgeable local guide or join a reputable trekking organization to ensure safety and navigation in this rugged terrain.
