Hi,

We have planned for a 9 days trip to Kuari Pass this December. We already booked the tickets and have contacted a few guides. But I was thinking of getting a few more contacts to tally their package rates. Can anyone provide me some contacts of guides based at Joshimath?

Also, we need to book cab or bus from Haridwar to Joshimath (and back). So, it would be really helpful if someone can send me contacts of reliable drivers, or provide me a bit of details of bus/cab services from Haridwar to Joshimath.

Thanks in advance! :

Why would you want to hire a bus for 9 days when you only need it for to and fro transit.
I suggest book an entire mini bus for one way and make it your private vehicle.
Also Kuari pass takes 4 day , you may stretch it to maximum five. Transit 2 more days. Are you planning for any other visits nearby?

Hey,

Thanks for getting back. I think you misunderstood, I just wanted to know some details about transportation services between Haridwar and Joshimath. We'll be 7/8 people, and need to book cab or bus from Haridwar to Joshimath after we reach Haridwar. So, it'd be better to have some info about the cab/bus services there.

The total trip will take 9 days, mainly because we will travel from Kolkata, and will be travelling by train on our way back. Also, we are adding a buffer day because we might do Pangarchulla Peak summit if possible.

For guides have you tried Sohan Singh Bisht? He is known to others on India Mike too. His rates might be a little higher than others but then he is worth it!

Hello Mridula,

We have contacted Dinesh Bisht and for 5 nights and 6 days (7 heads) he is quoting 9.5K Joshimath to Joshimath (lunch - lunch) per person. Do you think it is high or reasonable?

Regards,
Aneek

It is high as compared to other trek operators - who include pickup and drop from haridwar for the same rate.
But they have more number of participants and they have trips on daily basis - so that helps reduce the overheads.

Sohan Bisht is spoken well of in IM, though I have no first hand experience. I had gone via a trek organizer in 1st week of January. The trek is nice, becomes awesome with snow - which happens to come at its own whims and fancy.

The summit ahead.

Note - the batch which went the day prior did not get any snow at all. This was after a blizzard in the evening the day prior.

No. Pangachulla summit would have taken another couple of days and wasn't in the itinerary - so wasn't attempted.
