A group of trekkers reach Mayali Pass at 18000 feet after hours of arduous climb...

Mayali Pass is located on the ridge separating the Bhilangna (a tributary of Bhagirathi) valley in Tehri Garhwal and the Mandakini Valley in Kedarnath region.
The pass offers an awesome view of Himalayas right from Gangotri n Bhagirathi group of peaks in the west to Kedardome and Chaukhamba n eventually Nanda Devi n PanchChuli in the east. The trek starts from Ghuttu and moves parallel to River Bhilangna via Reeh, Gangi, Kalyani, Kharsoli, Bhelbagi, Tambakund and then reaches Khatling Glacier,the source of River Bhilangna. Chowki, a meadow in front of Khatling Glacier is an amazing camping ground with great view of peaks, the most impressive being Thalay Sagar peak.
From Chowki, onwards it is a steep climb to Masartal.
Further the climb becomes steeper and in snow to reach Masar Top n eventually Mayali Pass. Then its a steep descent to Vasukital and further to Kedarnath shrine and finally the trek ends at Gaurikund. This "mother of all treks" except Kalindi Khal;) is not to be missed...

See Mayali Pass for more details.
