This is a Holy Grail of trekking in the Himalaya, offering the finest multi-terrain challenge you will encounter. It`s one of the most famous treks in the Indian Himalayas

The Auden`s Col is situated on the connecting ridge of Gangotri III (6577m) and Jogin I (6465m), the small depression between the two mighty massifs - you approach the Col from Rudugaria glacier and descend through the ice falls and the heavily crevassed Khatling glacier. You start expedition by driving up the Bhagirathi valley right till the end of the road at Gangotri.

From here we move south towards the Gangotri range establishing a series of camps. With proper acclimatization, you cross the col and abseil to the mighty Khatling glacier. You descend the Khatling glacier and exit along the Bhilangana river, which surges from the snout of the Khatling. One of the most scenic walks in the Himalayas.
