MAYALI PASS TREK
Mayali Pass trekking route is followed by many trekkers every year. In ancient time this trek was being used by adventurous pilgrims while their pilgrimage travel from Gangotri to Kedarnath. Some followed Gangotri – Budha Kedar – Ghuttu – Panwali Kantha – Triyugi Narayan – Kedarnath and some Gangotri – Bedha Kedar – Khatling Glacier – Mayali Pass – Vasuki Tal & Kedarnath.
Today Gangotri – Kedarnath (Vai Audon Col’s, Khatling Glacier , Mayali Pass) is one of the toughest trek in Garhwal Himalaya reason and rarely hiked by trekkers. Some trekkers hike Auden’s col and some Mayali Pass. Mayali Pass Trek is loved by many trekker as one can enjoy actual Himalayan life in Gangi & Reeh, Dense Himalayan forest, Beautiful Himalayan meadows, Himalayan peaks like Jogin Group, Kirti Stambh, Meru, a High altitude pass (Mayali 5000 mts.), three high altitude lakes Masar Tal, Painya Tal & Vasuki Tal and a famous pilgrim center Kedarnath
