Sunderdhunga Glacier

One can also trek to the Sunderdhunga Glacier while in the Pindar region. It is a tough trek as compared to Pindari and Kaphini. Sunderdhunga means the valley of beautiful stones. This valley is situated to the west of the Pindar valley and has two glacier to offer to trekkers and nature lovers, namely Maiktoli and Sukhram.

The route up to village Khati is common for both Pindari and Sunderdhunga Glacier. The peaks which offer a spectacular view when seen from here are Tharkot (6100 m), Mrigthuni (6856 m), Maiktoil (6803 m) and Panwalidwar (6663 m). Sunderdhunga is approximately 24 km from the village Khati. From Khati one has to go to village Jatoli, which is 7 km away. Jatoli is the first night halt enroute to Sunderghunga Glacier. From Jatoli up to Dhungia Dhaun, about 8 km is a tough trek.

One should spend the night in Dhungia Dhuan either in shepherd huts or in pitched tents. Beyond Dhungia Dhuan, it is necessary to take a guide even for experienced and professional trekkers. The next halt is Kathalia, which is 6 to 7 km from Dhungia Dhaun. From Kathalia one can go to both Sukhram and Maiktoli glaciers. They are in opposite directions, 7 km from Kathalia.
