8 Day 7 Night
The trek to Ruinsara Lake is a beautiful trek through the Govind National Park, which is famous for its wild flowers especially orchids. This area has some of the most beautiful forests. It was made popular by Jack Gibson, a teacher at the Doon school in the late 1940’s.The surrounding peaks and glaciers in the Banderpoonch Range are a mountaineer’s delight. The Ruinsara Lake is famous for its wild flowers and grazing meadows used by local shepherds. The path follows the Tons river from Netwar village up through the scenic villages of Gangad, Seema and Osla. It is ideal to spend one day at the lake to explore the nearby Banderpoonch glacier and the base camp for the climb to Black peak.
