The Warwan Valley Trek, a breathtaking journey through the rugged terrain of Ladakh and the lush valleys of Kashmir, is set to take place in August 2024. This unique trek, organized by Philippine Global Explorers in collaboration with Less Traveled World by Raquel Mogado, promises an unforgettable adventure for those seeking to explore the less-traveled paths of India.
Embarking from Srinagar, the trek covers an 80-kilometer distance over nine days, offering a medium to difficult challenge for participants. The journey begins with a drive from Srinagar to Panikhar, followed by an acclimatization day to prepare for the trek ahead. As trekkers move from Panikhar to Denora and beyond, they’ll traverse diverse landscapes, from arid Ladakhi terrains to lush meadows brimming with wildflowers.
One of the most exhilarating parts of the trek is the glacier traverse, likened to the landscapes of Patagonia. This segment promises to be a highlight, offering stunning views and an experience like no other. As the trek progresses, participants will encounter beautiful glacial lakes, a knee-deep glacial river, and a descent to the bracken glacier, culminating in a 2 km ice walk.
The trek’s complexity varies from easy to difficult, ensuring that each day brings a new set of challenges and experiences. From navigating rocky moraines and stream crossings to witnessing the beauty of waterfalls and shepherd’s huts, the trek offers a rich tapestry of natural wonders. The journey concludes with a scenic drive back to Srinagar, leaving participants with memories of a lifetime.
For a price of $890, the package includes permits, all meals during the trek, transport from Srinagar to Panikhar and back, accommodation, camping equipment, and health & safety equipment. Participants are advised to bring necessary personal items, including trekking gear and a camera to capture the stunning scenery. The participants would also need to secure their own visas and medical insurance for this trip.
The Warwan Valley Trek is more than just a physical journey; it’s an exploration of the heart of Kashmir’s hidden beauty. It’s a chance to disconnect from the mundane and reconnect with nature in its most pristine form.
