Why You Should Do Buran Ghati?

1. Dayara Meadows

Dayara meadows is one of my favorite sections. I’m sure trekkers will agree. It is first seen from a high ledge, as you climb out of deep coniferous forests. You can see a vast expanse of table land that has been carved from the side of a mountain right in front. One side is grassy and climbs up the mountain sides, while the other side drops down the cliffs into the canyons below. Between them is the large green stretch that horses can gallop. It was unbelievable to me that we would camp in such beautiful settings. This was even on Day 1. Dayara meadows are my top pick when compared to meadows from other great treks.

2. Buran Ghati Wall and Snow Slides

The trek is very challenging and takes you up to 15,000ft. It is an incredible thrill to rappel down from the other side of Buran Ghati, and to reach the top of Buran Ghati. Buran Ghati wall is now well-known. It must be the highest point of rappelling in the world! Buran Ghati is a wonderful adventure because you can slide down several snow chutes. This adventure is a must-see for trekkers. Buran Ghati is also high up on my adventure list.

4. Litham Campsite

Litham captivated me. This campsite was at the confluence between two valleys. Litham was a great place to sit and take in the views of both valleys. The Chandranahan snout’s towering waterfalls are the best sight to be on your guard. Many people talk about the Rupin waterfalls, which can be found on the Rupin Pass hike. This one is just as spectacular.

5. Chandranahan Lake

I believe the side trip to Chandranahan Lake is underrated. It felt more enjoyable than the Buran Ghati crossing. You will be transported to an alpine area once you reach the Chandranahan Falls’ snout. This valley is narrow and snowy at high altitude. All around you are snow-capped mountains. You can still see the Pabbar river. To reach the heart of the valley, you will need to cross beautiful ledges after another. For the visual delight, the journey and setting are still a part of my memories.

6. The Waterfall And The River Campsite

On the other hand, I loved the river campsite. We are still at an amazing height looking back at the Buran wall from the camp. Although we are in the greens, all around us are alpine environments. It’s amazing to camp at such high altitudes. Dhunda, another high camp, would be a great moment for trekkers. It is thrilling to look at Buran Ghati from a new perspective. The waterfall at the camp was what made me happy.

Buran Ghati Trek

It is amazing how we can get into the upper village and then slow down to observe the culture until we reach the foot of the village, nearly a thousand feet below! Pay attention to the architecture, the people, and especially the temple. There are many fruit trees.

A Grand Buffet Of The Greatest Himalayan Treks

There are sections on every trek that are breathtakingly beautiful. We are not ashamed to admit that there are sections of every trek that aren’t perfect. These imperfections can be hard to spot when you’re on the Buran ghati trek. This trek is unbeatable. It’s almost as if someone took the best bits of our Himalayan treks, and merged them into one flawless trek. The trek begins at Janglik, an ancient village that is reminiscent of the Har Ki Dun trek. After climbing out of Janglik, the trail enters a beautiful forest before reaching Dayara meadows. Many trekkers stop here and stare in awe at Dayara meadows.

Dayara is a place where you expect the meadows to be over. Litham’s trail is full of meadows and forests. There is also the Dunda. Dunda is the campsite that can offer you both the beauty of the alpine mountains and the thrill of a spectacular climb, Barua is located on the opposite side of the pass and is an old charming village that will remind you of Lord of the Rings’ Hobbiton. It is home to old houses, fruit bearing trees, and alleyways. The Buran ghati trek is a moderate trek that combines all the best aspects of a difficult trek with a thrilling pass crossing. The scenery changes are fast and the majority of days are moderate to easy. Buran Ghati is a great choice for an autumn or summer trek.
