About Munsiyari

Nestling on the tip of India’s northern state of Uttarakhand, with Tibet bordering in the north and Nepal in the east, is a remote Himalayan town that offers a panoramic view of some of the world’s most magnificent peaks.

Amidst thickly wooded forests interspersed with several waterfalls, and a northern skyline silhouetted by the majestic Panch Chulli mountains which tower above 6900 meters in front against the backdrop of the greater Himalayas… are some of the attractions that make Munsiyari a very special place in the Indian Himalaya.

Place of Snow

For the local tribal inhabitants of this frontier settlement Munsiyari represents the “place of snow “. Surrounded by high snow caped mountains and several glacial springs, the small town of Munsiyari, at an altitude of 2200 metres, is also the gateway to the famous Milam, Ralam and Pachu glaciers.

The journey itself to this “last frontier” is packed with excitement: along the route are some of the best waterfalls of the region. The valley is dotted by quaint hamlets with a cultural lifestyle steeped in tradition and simplicity.

Almost every village surrounding Munsiyari town is rich with traditional handicrafts – hand woven carpets, pashmina shawls, sheep wool blankets, wooden artifacts, and so on.
