Niti Road

Naren Lamba
Day 8: Its time to explore Nanda Devi National Park, one more last Indian village on Indo- Tibet Border- Niti Village. Started almost around 7 AM and headed towards Niti Road from Joshimath. Indeed the route itself is mesmerizing with some beautiful vistas of valley and wild life. On the way to Niti, once again I was stopped by ITBP official and was not allowed to ride ahead from village Malari in absence of permit from SDM Joshimath. However, after meeting the senior official and having healthy conversation, I was allowed to explore the beautiful valley of fragrance in Nanda Devi National Park, Niti Village and was lucky enough to ride till Niti Pass at Indo-Tibet Border at an altitude of almost 16000 ft above sea level. The sight of Dronagiri Parwat (Mountain) - a place well-known in Mythology- wherein Lord Hanuman lifted Sanjeevani Parwat (Mountain) nearby to Dronagiri Parwat (Mountain) was simply breathtaking.
