The route was active until the war between India and China in 1962. Martoli once a prosperous village, is deserted now, with houses in a state of disrepair. It is a beautiful trek along the Gauri Ganga, dotted by resting ponts’ set up by the British at regular intervals. the mountain views beyond the glacier are truly rewarding. The side trip to Nanda Devi Base Camp offers spectacular views of the East face. For the experienced trekker, this is also the starting point of the famous Trails Pass Trek.
