Located in the Sankri range of Garhwal Himalayas, Bandapunch Peak meaning “Lord Hanuman’s Tail” is a staggering peak of the Bandapunch massif. Also sometimes referred to as “White Peak”, Bandapunch along with Kalanag which is known as “Black Peak” dominates the skyline rising high. The Bandarpunch glacier is the source of the holy river of Yamuna.

Bandarpunch peak expedition is technical in nature because of the steep snow slopes and its infamous snowfield which is absolutely humongous full of deep hidden crevasses that require proper probing every step of the way.
