/ Nanda Devi Trekking - advice please
NO INFO, sorry. But I always feel the story of the most famous ascent is so poignant, the guy's daughter named after the peak actually dies on the mountain and, very strangely, just gets rolled off a ledge rather than brought back down.
Would be worth you buying the Lonely Planet guide to Trekking in the Indian Himalaya http://shop.lonelyplanet.com/asia/trekking-in-the-indian-himalaya-5/trekking-in-the-indian-himalaya-...
Thanks Martin - wasn't aware of this !
I can't seem to find my old copy otherwise I'd have scanned the relevant pages for you.
You could try the Indian Mountaineering Foundation direct.
I organised an expedition to climb a 6000m peak in the Pindari Valley in 2005.
Martin Moran runs expeditions in that area, he was very helpful to us despite the fact we were going independent.
He did recommend a good local firm who did our logistics.
Also got a 1:200,000 map from Stanford's.
Martin's Indian agency (called Himalayan Run and Trek, agent Mr C.S.Pandey):

We (SMC group) used Mr Pandey last year for an expedition
Thanks all for the valuable suggestions. (that's the great thing about these forums - there's always someone that offers suggestions and advice in response to a query)
Mr Pandey is the man
I went up the Milam Glacier / Gori Ganga river in 2004 independently ten years ago. if you need any possibly out of date info about the east side of the sanctuary , let me know
