Rudgaira Base Camp


Trekking in Garhwal Himalayas is probably the most loved area of all the trekking tours in India. One of the most popular treks in the Garhwal Himalayas is to the Rudgaira Base Camp. Rudgaira (14,400 ft) also known as Rudragaira, located 9 KM SW of Gangotri in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand, India, is a valley dedicated to Lord Shiva. Dominating the Rudra valley, are peaks of the Gangotri group. This valley is an exciting destination for trekkers and mountaineers, as well as nature lovers and serves as the Base Camp for several treks and expeditions like Gangotri Peaks, Auden’s Col, etc. The Rudgaira peak, perched at an altitude of around 19,000 ft above sea level is noted for its scenic beauty.
