It is always fascinating to do a cross country trek and the Darwa Pass crossing is no exception. The Darwa pass is the watershed between two great rivers the Ganga and the Yamuna. The Darwa Pass also offers a most dramatic view of the twin peaks of Bandarpunch and multiple peaks in the Gangotri region towards the north east. It was also quite fascinating to see the drastic change in the terrain before and after the pass. The forest cover prior to Dodi Tal is very thick and in some situations resembles a rain forest. Across the pass the trail passes through a 25 km’s long meadow which just keeps going on and on. The trek ends at Hanuman Chatti which is the road head for this trek.
