Parkachik glacier lies below the Nun and is one of the major highlights of Parkachik if you like hiking. It’s a humungous piece of ice slowly melting into the Suru river, looking nothing less than an ice-fall. You can hike up to the glacier after crossing the suspension bridge across the river following the well-trodden trail. There’s aren’t any signs or anything so if you are a bit sceptical of your geography skills you can ask a local from the village to be your guide.Summit Nun Peak Base CampFor serious hikers who want to summit the Nun peak or climbing the base camp, Parkachik is good place to start. You can also start from Tongole, which is 7km from Parkachik. It can take upto 3-4 days for the base camp and other sightings while it can almost take 11 days to summit the peak.
