Milam Glacier Trek

Milam

Milam Glacier trek is a fascinating and compelling journey into the remote Johar valley, full of stories of abandoned ghost villages, fabulous terrain, and the views of the great Nanda Devi. It beckons every trekker into a journey through landscapes and time.

Note- The itinerary is at the end.

My interest levels had been fed subsequently by going to the magnificent private museum of Dr Sher Singh Pangtey in Munsyari in the second week of June. There were various pictures of Milam and Johar Valley, bifurcated previously, then after 1962. I was astounded to hear stories of the rapid decline of one of the oldest and most important salt trade routes from India to Tibet when the border was sealed.
