    Mt. Rudugaira  Expedition

     Brief Description

    Mount Rudugaira is located in the Rudu Valley of the Garhwal Himalayas. The Rudu Valley is known for its panoramic views of the Gangotri peaks. It is also an entry point towards Gangotri Massif and Auden’s Col. Rudugaira Peak is considered to be a safe and easy peak. It is best for those who are just starting out in the mountaineering field. Also, for trekkers who want to raise their bar of climbing. The low altitude is a perfect mountain to gain experience, with an easy approach. The expedition starts from none other than the popular pilgrimage site Gangotri. From Gangotri, the trail slowly winds through dense forests. meadows and the Bhagirathi River. The camps are strategically placed on vast meadows lined with large mountains. The trail is such that it passes through diversions every day. By the time you start attempting the summit, you’ve already passed meadows. moraine, landslides, ridges, streams, etc. This campaign introduces the concept of load ferry. In which the team shifts all the gear to the summit camp a day before and gives the data back to the base camp itself. Therefore, it prepares for larger mountaineering expeditions. This method of load ferrying is mainly for optimization. Trying to summit is literally a walk to heaven. It shows the scary cracks of the Gangotri peak. but the sight of the first sun rays falling on the Gangotri mountain is amazing. The rest of the climb also continues to surprise. Although the trail also plays with you by showing false peaks 3 times. Despite all this, the moment you reach the peak, you are on top of the world. Along with the Gangotri sisters, the sisters Shrikant, Shivling and Bhagirathi hail you.
