Overview

Kafni Glacier Trek is nestled with the scenic beauty with tranquility. It is located in the district of Bageshwar within Kumaon region of Uttarakhand state. Kafni is situated left of Pindar Valley, beneath the famous peak of Nandkot and to the southeast of Nanda Devi Peak.

Kafni glacier offers rise to river Kafni, which is an offshoot of river Pindar. Pindar itself is again, an offshoot of Alaknanda River, this is one of the two head streams of river Ganga.

Kafni, though a small glacier, is very well-liked by the trekkers and adventure lovers. It is compared with Pindar, the valley here is broader.
