➩ Description

The Phulara Ridge can be found in the north-eastern corner of Uttarakhand, about 25 kilometres from from the state line with Himachal Pradesh. This hike is at a very high altitude, with its highest point being 12,171 feet above mean sea level (MSL). It may be found inside Govind Pashu Vihar National Park in its current location. It is located in close proximity to several well-known hikes, such as the Kedarkantha and Har Ki Du-Ruinsara Tal trails. It is generally accepted that the Phulara Ridge hike begins and ends in Sankari. It has an unfair edge over other treks due to its location atop Phulara Ridge, which is in a more advantageous geographic position. Because it is situated inside the shadow cast by the surrounding terrain, the sun’s rays do not immediately illuminate the surrounding region. Because of this, the snow that covers the paths remains for a longer period of time, sometimes even into the spring. A path with an elevation of less than 13,000 feet is not likely to experience this kind of thing on a regular basis. This hike along Phulara Ridge is one that is best done during the warmer months of summer, namely between the months of June and May.

➩ Itinerary

Distance: 180Kms

Time: 6-7hrs

Sankari, the settlement that serves as the trek's starting point and base camp, is a little, picturesque place that has just 250 residents. The city of Sankari's retail scene consists mostly of a few different eateries and businesses. Due to the fact that it serves as the starting point for a number of different hikes, including Kedarkantha, Bali Pass, and Borasu Pass, the area is generally bustling with travellers during the peak season. Views of the sun setting behind the higher Himalayas may be seen from the hamlet, which is a sight to see. Kotgaon is located to the west of the Swargarohini Mountains, which dazzle in the sunshine as it rises high above the ridges in that direction. The path to Sankari will take travellers via Nainbagh, Naugaon, Purola, Jarmola, Mori Naitwar (from Naitwar, taking a left turn would bring you to Dhaula, which serves as the starting point for the trip to Rupin Pass and Bharadsar lake), and finally Sankari.

Distance: 7Kms

Time: 5-6hours

This morning, the uplifting morning is patiently waiting for you to wake up so that it may begin. Experience the serenity that comes with being surrounded by mountains; there is no connection and nothing worldly to distract you; all that is here is tranquilly. At six in the morning, savour the steaming cup of coffee or tea, and then get ready for breakfast at seven thirty. Following the directions of your tour guide, you are required to depart promptly at 8:30 in the morning. The journey begins at Sankri and continues on to Sikolta, which is located seven kilometres distant. After a short stroll from the main market, you will be able to see the Swargarohini peaks (I, II, and III) as well as bandarpunch peak, the black peak, which will captivate you. The ascent is made through a thick pine forest, and although it is a delight to stroll under the shade of the trees, it is also a place where you may view several rare species of Himalayan birds. You will arrive to Jaional Thach, which is the last destination, and it will provide you with views of the Dhuda mountain. Take a moment to look around and locate Phulara Ridge, your objective. At this point, the path splits in two; one branch travels through "Juda Ka Talab," while the other continues into thick woodlands. Up ahead, you'll come across some beautiful mountain vistas and streams. Continue your hike for another hour, taking stops to relax along the way, and you will eventually reach your campsite. It is a spacious and enticing meadow known as "Sikolta." In the immediate area, there are many damaged shepherd huts and a number of streams.

Distance: 3Kms

Time: 3-4hrs

After a wholesome breakfast, you should depart from Sikolta and go in the direction of Bhoj Gadi. You will get to a bridge that divides the valley after climbing through a forest for half an hour. Up ahead is a stunning clearing with blossoming flowers that goes by the name "Karsu Thach." You will be greeted with the astonishing sight of Kedarkantha peak as you take in the view from this Thach, which provides a clear view of the treeline as it recedes. Now, go into a different portion of the undulating meadows; the campground is around a half hour's walk away from here. You will eventually arrive at "Bhoj Gadi," a levelled meadow that offers breathtaking views of Kedarkantha, Vijay Top, Devkiyaara, and Swargarohini. From this campground, Kedarkantha is a considerable way away, although it is possible to walk there. You have a strong desire to visit that location. Eat your supper and then get some much-needed slumber for the night.

Distance: 6Kms

Time: 6-7hrs

The Phulara Ridge may be seen in its entirety from the Bhoj Gadi campground, and it will only take you half an hour to reach the peak. The ascent will be a pleasant one today thanks to the beautiful views and the abundance of flora and fauna; you may even see some rare Himalayan birds along the route. After a strenuous climb, you will finally reach the ridge top and be rewarded with magnificent views of the high Himalayan peaks. From the highest point of the ridge, the following mountains may be viewed in their entirety: Swargarohini, Kala Nag, Devkiyara, Bandarpoonch, Rangnala, Hanuman Top, Top of Sarutal, Vijay Top, and Kedarkantha. When taken into consideration as a whole, they provide a visual treat. Spend some time there, take in the breathtaking scenery, and enjoy the atmosphere before continuing on to Pushtara Thach. The course has a variety of steep climbs and challenging descents. After navigating across Sarutal's foothills, you will find yourself on the other side of the hill. After a quick descent beginning here, one will arrive to Pushtara Thach. There are expansive meadows that are replete with a profusion of wildflowers and vegetation. This Thach is surrounded by a number of streams, making it an excellent location for camping. Further on is a stunning lake that was created by the melting of glaciers; you may continue ahead and explore the lake region, or you can relax in your tents.

Distance: 8Kms

Time: 5-6hrs

It is not difficult to descend till you reach Taluka, but you should be cautious descending downhill since the vast majority of people twist their ankles. You are about to enter a dense forest, where the paths might be exceedingly complex; thus, you should follow your guide. Here in this area, the Langoors may be seen swinging from tree to tree quite effortlessly. After a very short hike, you will come upon a community where each home has its own herd of cows, goats, and other livestock. After half an hour, you will arrive at Taluka, which is a hamlet with a few stores. A vehicle will be provided to take us to Sankri from here, and once we get there, the accommodations will be booked at a hotel there.

Distance: 180Kms

Time: 6-7hrs

➩ Fitness

As you climb to higher altitudes, the air grows thinner and less oxygen is present. The amount of oxygen in our blood is equivalent to the proportion of haemoglobin that is saturated with oxygen. At altitudes above around 2,100 metres (7,000 feet), the amount of oxygen carried by our blood starts to decrease. At the same time, the human body possesses both immediate and long-term adaptations to altitude that help it somewhat compensate for the shortage of oxygen.
