Pangarchulla Peak Trek also known as the Chimney Peak, lies in the Nanda Devi Sanctuary. Perched at an altitude of 4483 metres, this trek offers everything that a trekker searches for, be it dusty and rocky trails, trails within dense coniferous forest and lastly a challenging and exhausting climb in deep snow with boulder hopping in between. This trek is a perfect example of non-technical mountain climbing. In short, it can be said that, Pangarchulla Peak is a trek that just daredevils can’t afford to miss.
