Pangarchulla, also known as the Chimney Peak, adorns the Lord Curzon circuit, which is widely considered among the most legendary hiking routes in the Garhwal Himalaya. Mountaineering enthusiasts may test their non-technical climbing abilities on this peak, which stands at an elevation of 4,590 metres. Even though this journey in Uttarakhand is available at any time of the year, the snow that falls during the winter months makes it impassable. If the level of excitement is directly proportional to the degree of difficulty, then the Pangarchulla Peak Trek in the wintertime would be an adventure that courageous people cannot afford to miss out on.
