Garuda Peak is one of the few lesser-known peaks in the Garhwal Himalayas of the Indian state of Uttarakhand.

Kalanka (6931 m), Changabang Parbat, and countless others.

Perched atop at an elevation of 6000 m, Garuda peak demands 8 days of strenuous hiking to climb. What’s more, is that this expedition grants you an unmissable opportunity to revel in the charming beauty of Uttarakhand where you will tread through the remote villages of Ruing and Dronagiri. Douse in a peaceful frenzy when you witness the untouched beauty of Garhwal Hills and Chamba Glacier, located at 4400 m from the mighty peaks of Garuda.
