Ronti Saddle Cross Trek:

This trail connects famous Roopkund and much revered Ronty Saddle to Dhauli Ganga basin in the north east direction. To distinguish, we prefer to call it as Ronti Pass and is a completely new  route for descending from Ronty Saddle. The usual Ronty Saddle ends at Sutol in the Nandakini basin, tracing back to Silasamudra then then to Lata Khopri and Sutol. Here we descent from the saddle to the other side, negotiating steep rock section and boulders and then finally to the temple of Bhabisya Badri, situated on the Joshimath to Malari road.

Crossing Ronti Saddle: The other side

Access to Lohajung (The trek base): Depending upon the trek members we will arrange a pick up from Kathgodam to Lohajung and from Joshimath to Haridwar back. This will be shared equally by the team members on actual basis.

Otherwise if a trekker wants to reach Lohajung by public vehicle then there are two options:

1)Reach Rishikesh by night (23 Km from Haridwar) and board the bus for Mandoli/Lohajung which starts from Rishikesh at 5 am in the morning and takes around 12/14 hrs to reach Lohajung. This is a privately operated bus and may not operate during the high Chardham yatra season. The route is via Devprayag, Rudraprayag, Karanprayag, Tharali and Deval.
2)There is a regular Uttarakhand Parivahan state operated bus service from Delhi to Lohajung (named as Delhi Deval service) which starts from ISBT Anand Vihar ( In Delhi ) around 4 pm in the afternoon and reaches next day in the evening to Lohajung. The journey is a tedious and hectic as it takes around 24 hours. The route of this bus is from Delhi via Haldwani, Kathgodam, Alomora, Kaushani, Gwaldam, Tharali and Deval. Present days this bus runs till Tharali.
