The Dronagiri village is located at an altitude of 3,610 meters and is the gateway to Bagini Glacier, which lies at an elevation of 4,630 meters also acts as base camp for dronagiri(7060 m)peak. The journey to Dronagiri steps onto the legendary history that reflects the diorama of the Hindu holy epic Ramayana. It is believed that in search of Sanjivni booti (life saving herb known to treat any disease even have capability to revive a dead guy) that would heal Laxman's life, who was injured by a poisoned arrow of Meghnad in Lord Ram's war with Ravana, unable to identify it Hanuman broke off the hilltop of Dronagiri. This led the locals furious against worshiping Hanuman. Today, you can actually see literally that it looks like a part of muntainn is broken. Dronagiri trek is one of the most beautiful treks in the Garhwal Himalayan region that takes you through several isolated hamlets tucked in the mountains and thereafter leads you through the dense alpine forest. The journey through legend traverses en route a rugged topography, which is a route distinct from other treks in the Garhwal Himalaya. Further, the journey offers you a panoramic view of the Rishi peak, Hathi Parvat, Trishuli and hardeol. Moreover, the journey also leads through several gushing streams like the Dhauliganga and Bagini Nala. From Dronagiri the trek to Bagini Glacier mostly covers a strenuous walk over the narrow and rugged tracks and glaciated plate. The vicinity offers a celestial view of the surrounding peaks and one can savor the unpolluted fresh and crisp air throughout the journey. Dronagiri translates to drone+ giri i.e home of guru dronacharya For whom who don’t know Droņa (Sanskrit: द्रोण, Droņa) or Droņacharya or Guru Droņa or Rajaguru Devadrona was the royal preceptor to the Kauravas and Pandavas; an avatar of Brihaspati. He is the friend of Guru Sukracharya, the teacher for Asura Mahabali. He was the son of rishi Bharadwaja and a descendant of the sage Angirasa. He was a master of advanced military arts, including the divine weapons or Astras. After him the prestigious Dronacharya Award for Outstanding Coaches is given in Sports and Games, Also was uttrakhand government trek of year 2017 The village, situated at an altitude of 11,800 feet, is hard to access. Travellers have to take a bus ride for 45 km from Joshimath to Jummah followed by a tedious trek for 8 km to reach the village that is home to some 400 Bhotiya families, who migrate during the severe winters to villages in lower altitudes.
Day 1 : Drive Form Joshimath to Jumma and Trek to Ruing Village 3km
Pagle mountaineer 'Team will meet you at joshimath(Pickup in accorandance with the travellers) for long but scenic drive to Jumma via Ta, Raenii povan. Laata along the Dhuali River. The trail starts with a steel suspension bridge over the Dhauliganga after which the ascent of Ruing begins. The road to Ruing is mildly steep through the forest. It’s about 3 kms from Jumma to Ruing and won't take more than 1 hours. The place has two distinct advantages, one you get closer to Dronagiri and it would be easy for you to negotiate the herculean climb through the landslide and second this place has a nearby stream so a good natural place to camp.

Alter having our breakfast and the trek starts at 8:30 AM for our next destination . The trail is dusty, steeply inclined at an angle of 60° to 70º to the horizontal and full of mud slides, small streams crisscrossing your path, while you take your tired body surely and slowly to the top. Once you reach there, a cemented pavement awaits in silent anticipation to take you to the Village. The scene is straight out from a Swiss alpine landscape. The horizon is dotted with the snow laden peaks of Hathi Parvat, Ghori Parvat. If its summer, flowers will be in full blossom. For once you forget this is not a trek but a walk in the Swiss alps.
