On the same route, as of Pindari and Sunderdunga but slightly different near the end lies the Kafani Glacier. It is often said that the trek route is more fun than the small-sized (3 Km length) glacier in itself if compared to the other glaciers located around the same area.

The glacier could be reached by both Almora as well as Kathgodam depending upon the route taken. From here on, Bageshwar is the place where your trek during the trek you will pass through several villages which takes you to Khatiya after which the Kafani Glacier is located.

This glacier acts as the feed for Kafani River that merges with the Pindar River which finally takes to the Alaknanda River. This merging as everyone knows results into ends in Ganges River, making it one of the mightiest ‘water lifeline of India.
