Difficulty

Easy to moderate

The Rangthar trek is one of the most leisurely treks that we offer and allows you to reach a very scenic point in 2 days only. If you have only a weekend for a visit to the GHNP, Rangthar could be the best option for you.

 

It starts from a village recently connected with the road. Hence you do not have too much to climb to reach the campsite at an altitude of about 2900 m above sea level.

And what a campsite! If one dreams of an ideal campsite that blends the rightness of the ground, the beauty of the surrounding environment and the perfect mountains view in the background, Rangthar have them all !

 

Compared to Rolla, our other 2 days trek, Rangthar requires a bit more of physical effort (ascent of 760 m for Rangthar, 500 m for Rolla) and has no river on the way.

To help you selecting the best 2 day trek, we would say that if you prefer a riverside and forested experience with less view of the peaks, then Rolla is yours, or if you prefer a great camping experience with a great view of the Himalayas then you should go for Rangthar !
