Hiking / Camping Tour · Outdoor Activity
The Nanda Devi National Park, established in 1982, is a national park situated around the peak of Nanda Devi (7816 m) in the state of Uttarakhand in northern India. The entire park lies at an elevation of more than 3500m above mean sea level.The National Park was inscribed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988. The latter was expanded and renamed to Nanda Devi and Valley of Flowers National Parks in 2005.Within the National Park lies the Nanda Devi Sanctuary, a glacial basin surrounded by a ring of peaks between 6000m and 7500m high, and drained by the Rishi Ganga through the Rishi Ganga Gorge, a steep, almost impassable defile.The National Park is embedded in the 2236.74km2 sized Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve, which, in turn, is encompassed in the 5148.57km2 buffer zone around the Nanda Devi and Valley of Flowers National Parks UNESCO site.HistoryThe first recorded attempt to explore the sanctuary was in 1883 by W. W. Graham, who could proceed only up to Rishi Ganga. Other attempts by explorers in 1870, (T. G. Longstaff) 1926, 1927 and 1932 (Hugh Ruttledge) did not fetch fruitful results. Eric Shipton and H. W. Tilman entered the inner sanctuary through Rishi Ganga in 1934, thus opening the extensive exploration in the sanctuary. In 1939, the area was declared as a game sanctuary.
