Getting to Loharjung: From Old Delhi station, take the Ranikhet Express that leaves at 10.40 in the night. It will get you to Kathgodam which is its final stop at around 6. 30 am.
Trekkers who come in from different parts of the country sometimes get worried about how to reach Lohajung. Lohajung is in the very interior of the inner Himalayas and can be tricky to access.

Your physical fitness is important for a successful completion of the trek. Training yourself to get to a jogging distance of 4.5 km under 30 minutes makes your lungs strong and gives it ability to process less air for more work.
