    The Damdar Kandi Pass Trek is one of the most strenuous treks we have attempted. The trail winds over luxuriant forests and meadows to reach glacial moraines and boulder screes, and hidden in the misty clouds is the icy Damdar Kandi Pass. The views from the pass are as rewarding as the ascent is difficult. The Ruinsara Lake was like the cherry on top!

    About Damdar Kandi Pass

    The Damdar Kandi Pass facilitates the shortest route between Gangotri and Har ki Dun Valley across the Bandarpoonch massif. There is absolutely no habitation along the entire way and the trail is used only sparingly by shepherds. The lower reaches are redolent with forests and flower strewn meadows, the most beautiful of which is the Kyarkoti meadow post which the terrain becomes grueling. Glacial debris, moraines, snowfields and rocky screes dominate the landscape. The Damdar Kandi Pass has a jaw-dropping elevation of 5576 m and commands immaculate views of the Bandarpoonch massif and the Gangotri range. Across the pass is the prettily-named Ruinsara Valley adorned by a lake of the same name. The Damdar Kandi Pass Trek is hardly ever attempted in the west to east direction. The trek is arduous and is only recommended for experienced and well-equipped groups.
