Arrive at Joshimath and Check in to the Guest House
Day 2 day, proceed for Jumma, a picturesque village from where you would begin your trek to Bagini glacier. The journey takes an hour and is undertaken on the highway between Joshimath and Malari.
Enroute, you will pass many small hamlets of Reni, Phagti and Tapovan and the magnificent River called Dhulaiganga beauty will blind you with crystal clear waters gushing forward in rhythmic symphony. After you have reached Jumma by crossing a suspended bridge over the Dhulaiganga, you will arrive at Ruing Village. With a distance of three kms that you will cover and a few ascents here and there, the trek to this village is not tiring.
The next day begins with a trek to the Dronagiri Village that is located at a height of 11,844 feet. Bearing a deserted and haunted look, the village offers a visual contrast wherein a few kilometers back, you were nestled in lushness
and serenity, while at present, all you see is a vast expanse that shows no sign of human settlement. This village would be your camping site for the night. You can visit a temple here called Bhumial Temple if you please.
To witness two villages, one that is bestowed with all the wondrous features to makeyour minds blow like snow capped peaks, gushing and cascading waters of the rivers and streams, green rolling meadows and residents waiting to welcome the guests, and the other hamlet that lies in ruins, with no trace of life or
beauty. Wow…now that’s called a classic example of juxtaposition!

Stunning peaks of Hardeul and Satminal, rocky trails, fresh water streams and meandering paths are some highlights to look for when traversing your way to the main base camp at Bhagini.

For this trek, you would benefit a lot if you start your joinery early in the morning.The ascent to this site is dotted with ravines and drifts to make the long journey seem less tiring.

and Rishi encircling the glacier, you cannot expect to witness a thing or place as grand as this. Make the trek back to the base camp to end the expedition.The peaks of Trishuli, Kalanka and Changbang will mesmerize you with their snow capped silvery mountain tops.
