Rated 4.9/5.0 on TripAdvisor. 550 Reviews
Nanda Kot Peak Expedition
One of the most famous peaks in the Kumaon Mountains, Mt. Nanda Kot Peak can be found in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. It is a satellite peak of Nanda Devi that rises about 15 kilometres to the north west of the main peak. The term "Nanda kot" translates to "Nanda's Fortress," and it relates to the dwelling of one of the holy forms of the Hindu Goddess Parvati, who, according to mythology, has created her shelter within the ring of tall mountains in the area. Nanda kot is a mountain pass that is located in Nepal. In 1936, a Japanese team commanded by YaichiHotta were the first people to successfully try climbing Mount Nanda kot. In 1995, an expedition that was headed by Martin Moran and was led by the British attempted a new route that included climbing directly up the south face of the mountain. The summit, on the other hand, has an illustrious history of being scaled by mountain climbers and has been tried numerous times.
We will follow the path that continues further to Dhakuri Pass Khati hamlet to the Dwali base, since this is the way that is used by mountaineers the most often. The summit may be reached through two different routes via Loharkhet.

➽ Preparation for Expedition
As you well know, the great Himalayan expedition is one that requires careful preparation, a strategy that allows for enough flexibility to adapt to whatever challenges may arise.
Therefore, here are some things to consider before setting out on your Nanda Kot Peak Expedition:
⦿ Physically – You should start working out at least a month before signing up for a program if you want to be physically prepared for the rigours of a journey. Strengthen your legs by jogging and working out regularly to increase your stamina. To better acclimatise to the environment and increase your resilience on the walk, you should give up smoking and undertake breathing exercises twice a day. Engage in vigorous physical activity, such as playing sports, doing Yoga, or running.
⦿ Mentally –
Getting in shape physically is essential, but mental preparation is just as crucial for a successful walk. Take time to enjoy your regular activities, maintain a healthy diet and sleep schedule, and unwind before embarking on a hike. Predictions regarding the journey should not cause mental worry. Spend time with your closest pals to recharge your batteries and renew your spirit. Pre-trek preconceptions are unwarranted since the first contact with the other trekkers is certain to be a source of inspiration and energy. Conditions during the walk will contribute to the increase in mental readiness. The mental repercussions of physical disadvantages will not be ignored. So, when you hike, pay attention to different regions of your body and purposefully relax them. If you want to enjoy your hike, you should learn to loosen up a little, particularly in the hips. Think about your descent as a simple dance, and enjoy the natural rhythms that the path and your body can discover together gradually, whether you're on a flowing downhill route or a frightening slope. Try out a few new walking techniques to add some fun to your commute without worrying about getting somewhere in particular. Maintaining mental fitness mostly requires a willingness to relax and take in the journey, rather than subjecting oneself to undue stress.

Climbing Hanuman Tibba in August 2019 with Good Company
In the company of Hat, Sameer, Arun, and I climbed to the summit of Hanuman Tibba (at an altitude of 5932 metres). With Shera at the helm as the chief guide, along come Vishal, Panna, and Jaggi, who work together to form a tight-knit, effective, and amiable unit. The majority of our time was spent in a high-quality 4-person tent; the given gear was not brand new but adequate, with the exception of a few small difficulties with one of the sleeping bags. Both the meal and the hot beverages were delicious. Manu was simple to get in touch with before to our adventure, and he answered all of our questions (there weren't many) thoroughly. Basically, my time spent on adventure with Himalayan Adventure Trips was both personally rewarding and professionally enriching.
