Kafni Glacier
Kafni glacier is situated on the left side of pindar valley under majestic mountain Nandakot. This region has its own charm with the solitude it presents. This region is very rich in wildlife. There are no rest houses beyond Dwali and one has to spend nights in tents or caves. Main peaks near the glacier are Nandakot 6860 meters      
 
The scenic beauty and the tranquility prevailing in this region has an unbeatable charm. The Kaphini (Kafni) Glacier lies left of the Pindar Valley below the famous peak of Nandakot. The route to Kaphini Glacier covers the same track up to Dwali, as the track to Pindari.

 
 Kaphini Glacier is 12 km from Dwali via Byali Udiyar, which is at a distance of 8 km from Dwali. As compared to Pindar the valley is much broader and the rhododendron (burans) that blooms here is spectacularly beautiful. The main Himalayan summits visible from the glacier are Nandakot and Nandabhnar
 
Snow capped mountains, incredible Himalayan scenery, undulating but leisurely walks through large expanses of lush green meadows and tree-lined pathways, herds of sheep lined on the mountains & through the trekking trail; coupled with the tranquillity & solitude the route presents make up for exciting ingredients on the Kafni Glacier trek which is fast becoming the must visit zone for trekkers from around the world.
 
There are no rest houses beyond Dwali on the Kaphini track, so one has to use tents. Byali Udiyar is an ideal spot for a night's stay, because there are grasslands to pitch a tent and caves for a convenient night halt. To reach the glacier, one should start very early from Byali Udiyar 4 km away, so as to arrive at the zero point before 9 a.m.
