Description:
The Pindari Glacier is a glacier found in the upper reaches of the Kumaon Himalayas, to the southeast of Nanda Devi, Nanda Kot. The glacier flows to the south for a short distance of about 3km and gives rise to the Pindari river which meets Alakananda at Karnaprayag in the Garhwal district.

The trail to reach the glacier crosses the villages of Saung, Loharkhet, over the Dhakuri pass, onto Khati village (the last inhabhited village on the trail), Dwali, Phurkia and finally Zero Point, Pindar, the end of the trail. Though most of the trail is along the banks of the Pindari river you don't get to see the river till after Khati. As one approached the Khati village you can be confused by the sight of a river, that is not Pundari that is the Sundardunga flowing to meet the Pindari at Khati, its origin the Maiktoli Glacier.

The Pindari Glacier trail provides for a 90 km (56 mile) round-trip trek that most people find comfortable to complete in five days.
