A trekker from Maharashtra and a porter were killed recently in the course of separate expeditions in the park area. While the trekker from Maharashtra was killed near Borasu pass in the course of an expedition from Har-ki Doon valley in the park area to Chitkul in Himachal Pradesh, a porter accompanying a team of trekkers from West Bengal died after slipping off a hillock along Yamunotri trek just a day later. The sanctuary protects 958 sq km of forests, alpine meadows, and snowy peaks.
