Auden's Col (5400 m) - Gangotri to Ghuttu  or Gangotri to Kedarnath Trek

 

Auden's Col is name of a mountain pass ( named after Mr. J.B. Auden) which is located in central Garhwal region and trek route to Auden's Col is known as Auden's Col trek, Auden's col pass connects Himalayan mountain peak Jogin ( 21205 Ft) and Gangotri Third peak ( 21582 Ft), Height of Auden's Col pass is 17200 Ft above sea level.

Auden'col joints to galciers named as Khatling galcier at south and Jogin Bhamak glacier on the north, Gangotri third galcier is also located after some distance. Auden's Col pass is approachable by two treks , One from Gangotri and second from Kedarnath.

Mr. J.B. Auden was a famous British geologist, He explored this pass first time in year 1939, Auden's Col is less visited trek in comparison with Kalindi Khal & Khatling Glacier trek, This trek is perfect for adventure and challenge lovers as this trek is technically demanding trek.

 

The col is situated on the connecting ridge of Gangotri III (6577m) and Jogin I (6465 m) Ė we approach the col from Rudugaira glacier and descend through the ice falls and the crevassed Khatling glacier. We start our expedition by heading up the Bhagirathi river till the temple shrine at Gangotri. From here we move south towards the Gangotri range, moving up in altitude slowly, and with the required level of acclimatization. We ascend to the top of the Col and then abseil to the mighty Khatling glacier. We descend the Khatling glacier and exit along the Bhilangana river, which surges from the mout of the Khatling. This is one of the most scenic walks in the Himalaya, all the way till Reeh, where the road has moved up the valley.
