The KHALIYA Top is a windy meadow enclosed by snowy peaks, offering a magical view of the mystical land of KUMAON. The KHALIYA Top is perched at an amazing altitude of 3500 metres above sea level and situated amidst MUNSIYARI in PITHORAGARH region of UTTARAKHAND. One can experience the panoramic views of the majestic PANCHACHULI, RAJRAMBHA, HARDEOL and NANDA KOT peaks from the KHALIYA Top.
The KHALIYA Top is a widespread trek as the trekkers can enjoy the glorious sights of the PANCHACHULI and Nanda Devi Range. The KHALIYA Top can be easily commenced by covering a slanting inclination of 6 km from BALANTI Farm. This trek permits the hikers to see the snowline in early summer. If you are a wildlife photographer then you may find yourself in advantage as this place is a habitation for varied birds and animal species such as MONAL, GHURAR, KAKAR, yellow fronted marten and BARAL (mountain goat). Spring season is the perfect time for this trek as the small shrubby trees bloom in the region, making the jungle fiery red.
