Nanda Devi Raj Jat, one of the world renowned festivals of Uttaranchal is celebrated for three weeks. The Yatra/festival is held once in every 12 years in Chamoli district of Uttaranchal. A lot of people from Garhwal-Kumaon and other parts of the country as well as around the globe participate in this Yatra.

To complete this royal pilgrimage, one has to undertake a trek for 280 km spans, which will take around 20 days. The Jat begins with a sheep having four horns from Nauti village, located close to Karnprayag and goes up to the heights of Roopkund and Hemkund. Once the havan-yagna is over, the sheep is freed and offered with foods, clothing and ornaments.

It is said that Nanda Devi Raj Jat Yatra is held when the sheep of four horns take birth. An annual Jat is also held by the people.
