About Milam Glacier

Milam Glacier is a major glacier of the Kumaon trekking in Himalaya. It is situated in the tehsil of Munsiyari, part of the Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand, India, about 15 kilometres northeast of Nanda Devi.

The base for Milam Glacier is Munsyari (2290 Meters) in Pithoragarh district. From Munsyari the trek will take us to downhill along Gori Ganga River. From Bogdiyar to Rilkot, there is a thickly forested region where the land opens into the Gori Ganga Valley. While crossing Gori Ganga River below Burfu Village, we will observe an uninterrupted view of Nanda Devi and Hardeol peaks up to Milam Glacier.

This mixed glacier system is the source of the Gori Ganga River, and offers breathtaking views of an area that abounds in natural beauty. The last point of Milam Glacier at 3872 meters is the nodal point for a variety of high grade routes and peaks.

Passing through the vibrant valleys of the Gori Ganga and the high alpine meadows, one cannot resist admiring the impressive waterfalls and forests of Rhododendron, conifers, chestnut and bamboo.

Description

About Milam Glacier Trek:

The Milam Glacier is one of the major glaciers in the Kumaon region. It is situated in Munsiyari of Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand. The elevation of the glacier ranges from 5500 metres to 3870 metres and is located at a distance of 15 km from Nanda Devi. The glacier was closed for trekking in 1962, but was reopened in 1994.

The best time to visit the Milam glacier is before the monsoons i.e. from mid-March to May. The monsoons set in June, which triggers landslides and roadblocks, making the area dangerous for any expedition.

The trekking trail to the Milam glacier starts at Munsiyari. You can enjoy breathtaking views of the Kumaon region and pass through places such as Nanda Devi East Base, Gauri Ganga Lilam, Martoli, Railkot, etc. on your way to the glacier. The glacier originates from the eastern slope of Trishuli and the southern slope of Kohli. The village of Milam is situated near the snout of the glacier. The trek to the Milam glacier is one of the best trails for trekking in India.

The Milam glacier has an altitude of 4268 metres and is surrounded by 52 peaks. The Milam glacier serves as an axial point for high altitude treks in India. The entire distance is covered by walking along the banks of the River Gori Ganga. You will pass through dense forests with blooming rhododendrons, chestnut trees, lush green conifers etc.

The trekking trail takes you past the Nanda Devi and Hardeol peaks. You will also come across the Ragash Kund, a shepherd shelter and a pond. The trek is a slightly difficult and will test your physical fitness and strength as you gain altitude. The best part of the journey is that you get to view the best of Himalayan beauty amidst majestic mountains and gurgling waters.
