About ronti saddle :
Ronti Saddle is a saddle between the glorious Himalayan peaks of Nanda Ghungti and Trishul closer to the Nanda Devi Inner Sanctuary.
The trek to Ronti Saddle is approached from the more popular Roopkund side and you enter the Sheela Samudra valley once you cross over the Junairagali Pass above Roopkund. A sharp descend from the Junairagali pass gets you to the vast and remote grassland of the Sheela Samudra. The name Sheela ( rocks ) Samudra ( sea ) translates to 'Sea of Rocks' and is given to the glacier coming down from the might Trishul. If there is some noise in this valley, it is of the frequent ice breaking and falling down from Trishul, feeding the Sheela Samudra glacier. Here, you will only find yourself and few 'Keeda Jadi, Yartse Gumba' pluckers during the months of June.
The trek after Sheela Samudra climbs up following the Nandakini river to the campsite of Do Dang ( 2 rocks ). It then treks over a broken ridge with sharp verticle fall on one side to takes us to Homkund - a small lake mostly under snow. From Homkund, the trek starts climbing to Ronti Saddle.
We can either cross over the Saddle ( recently a team of Bengali Trekkers has done that in September), but mostly will come back to Do Dang and exit via Ghat, trekking through the deep forest cover of Lata Khopri and the villages of Sutol and Sitel, following the Nandakini River.
