The Pindari Glacier, in the Bageshwar district, has attracted the avid trekker for long now, being one of the most easily accessible glaciers. The Pindari Glacier Trek is an unsurpassable and an exhilarating experience. Pindari lies between the Nanda Devi and Nandakot peaks and terminates at an altitude of 3627 m. The Glacier is 5 km long, the snout is about 6 m high and 2.5 m wide. It is located in the Pindar Valley and occupies an area of 340 sq km. The Pindar river has cut a gorge in thick glacial deposits up to nearly 10 km, which has lead to the formation of spacious glacial terraces spread on both sides of the gorge. Enroute to the glacier, one comes across numerous waterfalls, hanging valleys and tremendous rolls cliffs as the one of at Dwali, making for a really wonderful trek.
