A further trek of around half an hour will take us to the Junar Gali, highest point of Roopkund Lake trek. After exploring the site and seeing the mystical skeletons, we further trek toward Shila Samunder. The descent from the pass top to Sheela Samudra is a sharp one initially which requires good concentration. A few of hours of continuous descend brings us to our campsite marked by a huge boulder which acts like a wind shield.  Enjoy the beauty of the great mt. Trishul which is so close by.

Day 8: Trek to to Do Dang

After an early breakfast, follow the trail that lead us towards a huge huge boulder zone which takes around one and half hours to cross. Once we cross the boulder zone, the trek is along the right bank of Nandakini which starts from the Holy Homkund.  There are some dangerous scree zones which need to crosses precisely which thus take us at Do Dang which will be our campground for the day.

Day 9: Trek to Hom Kund & Ronti Saddle and then Trek Back to Do Dang

Today is the most difficult as well as rewarding day of the entire Hom Kund Ronti Trek. The trail immediately climbs after Dodang and then a few minutes of walking, it narrows down to a very thin ridge. The path at some places is just 6 inches wide. Be careful as you may get slip over from here and which in turn takes you at 100 feet down. This is a scary part. There are many such rajor thin ridges to cross before you reach Homkund. Enjoy the views of hanging glacier of Trishul within 200m of the lake upon arrival.  The spiritual currents in this place are so strong enough that they can completely overwhelm you.  After offering prayers, we start to climb up the steep snowy climb to the Ronti Saddle along the boulders for around 300m vertical distance. After that it’s a gentle snow plodding which leads to Ronti Saddle. The breathtaking views of Trishul, Nanda Ghungti and many other peaks from the top will make you spell bound.  After spending some quality amount of time at the peak, we retrace the path towards Do Dang.

Dinner and night stay at the camp.
