There are magnificent landscapes and whether you are a new adventurer or a seasoned explorer all over India, you will always find places suitable for trekking in India. India is native to the highest mountain ranges in the world, the Himalayas. There are several trekking trails through valleys, hills, and tropical rainforests. With varying difficulty levels and terrains, these treks will surely provide you with a much-needed thrill.
Treks in India are a great way to enjoy the country’s natural splendor and experience the real thrill of mountains. There are four main areas for trekking in India, out of which three are located around the Himalayas.These are Kashmir, Jammu, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand. Some of the most magnificent treks here are the Roopkund Trek, Chadar trek, Stok Kangri Summit, etc.
Not all the places for trekking in India are in the north, however, the southern state of Kerala also presents several trekking opportunities as well to the trekkers. Chembra Trek, Kudremukh trek, and Kodachadri offer the best trekking experience. If you are up for some excitement during the vacation, then nothing can beat trekking through lush greenery to catch the breathtaking views of the mountains.
Kedarkantha is such a popular winter trek that it would be suitable to entitle as the Queen of Winter Treks. Knee-deep snow in winter, amazing views from the top, and easy and beautiful trails make it known among trekkers. The ‘easy on endurance’ route goes through the thick pine forests of the Govind National Park. The views from the top are worth climbing to a height of 12,500 ft.
Kedarkantha trek will give trekkers an inimitable view of the lush meadows, cosmic sky, snow paths, charming villages, scented pine forests, tranquil rivers, sky-knocking peaks, and some mythological story whispers.
EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK, NEPAL
Everyone calls it the “steps to heaven” for a better reason. To go to the base camp of the highest mountain in the world is on every trekker’s bucket list. One will look at the scenery that’s so breathtakingly amazing and unlike any mountainous terrain that you have ever seen before – changing from dense forest, lush green farmland, and glistening blue fast-flowing rivers to the barren land and glacial pools the higher you climb – that you realize it will be a decision. Here you are, conquering Everest like a fighter.
When you’ll reach the top of the peak, stumbling over loose rocks and onto a canvas of white, all you will do is sit and fantasize about what had become one of your greatest achievements.
Kheerganga is one of the rare Himalayan treks in which you are gifted with natural hot water springs on reaching the peak at almost 10,000 feet. This trek takes trekkers deep into the Parvati Valley by walking alongside the babbling Beas River, ascending through oak and pine forests, and traversing the green gorge. On the way to the top, you will come across many amazing waterfalls and a Shiva temple. The white-snowy Himalayan peaks will accompany the trekkers throughout the day.
The unique experience of relaxing in the vistas of snow-capped tops will remain with you forever as memories. Be it savoring Israeli food at colorful cafes or a memorable walk along the fresh Parvati river, everything here would be a little more special.
Trekking, for some, is an escape from the usual life and for others, it is an adventure to attempt. To walk on the path carved out amid naked mountains with the clear blue skies over your head, to breathe its difficulties, to sense the soothing touch of the cool breeze on your face, and to witness the incredible frozen waterfall is an experience one cannot put into words. Chadar Trek gives one such a glorious and fascinating experience.
Another gem of the Himalayas which is untouched by trekkers around the world is the Brahmatal trek, which is devoted to Lord Brahma. It is beautifully located amidst the Himalayas and covered with blankets of snow. The route lets you see the centuries-old forest of Rhododendron and Oak. Walking in meadows besides Brahamatal Ridge people can see many sites of Roopkund Trek. A view of the Garhwal Mountains in the distance on a clear day will melt your heart.
Trekking is an outdoor exercise of walking for more than a day. It is a form of walking, undertaken with the specific purpose of enjoying and exploring the scenery. Trekking could be a goal. It could be a commitment, an aim, an objective, a party, a mission, or a social gathering.
