Gwaldam offers some of the best trekking expeditions in the Kumaon. The route winds through pine and oak forests and takes you to cascading waterfalls and sparkling streams. Gwaldam is the base camp for Nanda Devi Yatra, Kuari Pass and Roopkund Lake treks. The 3-km trek to Badhangarh temple, perched on a narrow ridge, is beautiful. The Nanda Devi Raj Jat Yatra, the most revered religious tour in the region that takes place in every 12 years, passes through Gwaldam.
