The trek from Morina Dhar to Ghodippa is mostly over a ridge that runs parallel to the beautiful horizon taken over by the Swargarohini range and Nanda Devi range. From Ghodippa a gentle climb of 15 kilometers winds at Nag Tibba and thereafter, camping overnight, the downhill trek leads to the picturesque village of Pantwari, which is at an elevation of 1,524 meters.
