Trekking, also known as long-distance hiking, entails walking for several days or weeks while remaining completely or partially self-sufficient. Originally, the sport was primarily practiced in mountains, often in notoriously difficult-to-reach locations; however, the term now encompasses a wide range of terrain and itineraries for all skill levels.
Setting up your bivouac at dusk, taking time to look at the stars, and discovering new landscapes every day are all part of the trekking spirit. The setting is up to you: the vastness of the desert, the town or countryside, the beauty of the mountains, and so on.
Some of the best Himalayan Treks in India
1. Trekking in Dayara Bugyal
Dayara Bugyal has everything a perfect Himalayan trek should have: beautiful forests, beautiful campsites, ancient villages, thrilling climbs to high points, breathtaking mountain views, and a few of Uttarakhand’s best alpine meadows. In the winter, these meadows are completely covered in snow. All of this in an easy-moderate hike– a rare treat.
2. Ruinsara Tal – Har Ki Dun
“The Har Ki Dun – Ruinsara Tal trek in the Himalayas is a perfect blend of culture and beauty. Our co-founder Sandhya says, “Experiencing ancient Himalayan villages alongside breathtakingly beautiful valleys, lakes, and meadows is a very rare combination to come by.”
The Ruinsara Tal trek was added to the Har Ki Dun itinerary by Indiahikes because the Har Ki Dun trek would be incomplete without it.
Ruinsara Tal is completely isolated, and the Ruinsara valley is said to be more beautiful than the Har Ki Dun valley
3. Chandrashila Trek Deoriatal
The Deoriatal Chandrashila trek is a 6-day trek with Indiahikes. It’s a unique trek because you can see all of the major summits of Western and Eastern Uttarakhand from the summit, not just a section of the Himalayan ranges.
Not only that, but if you trek between March and April, you’ll be walking among fully bloomed rhododendrons! It is also known as a bird watcher’s paradise due to the numerous species of birds that can be seen along the trail.
If you love Trekking you can also do kudremukh trek in Bangalore as it is also a beautiful trek with amazing view.
4. Trekking on the Phulara Ridge
In September, October, November, May, and June, the Phulara Ridge trek is ideal. It is a one-of-a-kind ridge trek in India, as well as one of the more recent treks. Another reason why every trekker should do this trek is because of the beautiful Pushtara meadows.
In addition, the Phulara Ridge trek has a beautiful dense forest section for a short distance. This is the trek for you if you are a wildlife or bird enthusiast. On this trek, we saw over ten different kinds of Himalayan birds.
5. Trekking in Brahmatal
The Brahmatal, like several other treks, was explored and documented by Indiahikes. The Brahmatal Top, at 12,250 feet, is the highest point on this trek. It’s a breathtaking journey. Mt Chaukhamba, Mt Neelkanth, Mt Hathi Ghoda, Mt Trishul, and Mt Nanda Ghunti are just a few of the mountains that will greet you on your journey.
Brahmatal is also a fantastic solo trek. The trail is covered in snow in December, January, and February. The trek is scheduled to last until the end of April.
6.Trekking in Sandakphu Phalut
The Sandakphu Phalut trek is one of the few treks where you can see Mt Everest, Mt Lhotse, Mt Makalu, and Mt Kanchenjunga, four of the world’s highest mountains. The Sandakphu treks stand out among all Himalayan treks because of this view. You can also see the Kanchenjunga range, as well as other Himalayan mountains, including the Sleeping Buddha, an image that will stay with you for years.
The tea houses you will come across are a unique feature of this trek. They’re similar to hotels and restaurants, but they’re not the same. To feel the warmth of a tea house, you’ll have to stay in one.
7.Trek to Tarsar Marsar
The Tarsar Marsar trek in Kashmir is India’s most beautiful trek. The Kashmir Great Lakes Trek is the only other trek that comes close to matching its beauty. Because this is a moderate trek, you must arrive well prepared.
From Tarsar to Marsar, and then to Sundarsar, the trek takes you from one lake to the next. You’ll also have the opportunity to camp next to two of these beautiful lakes. Tarsar Marsar is superior to the Kashmir Great Lakes Trek in this regard.
We keep a close eye on the social and political situation in Kashmir at Indiahikes. On the slopes, the safety of our trekkers and staff is always our top priority.
Trekking, like all physical activities, is good for your health: it strengthens your bones, lowers your risk of osteoporosis, improves your cardiovascular and respiratory capacities, strengthens your immune system, and increases your muscular capacity.
