Trekking is gaining popularity in India. It is truly a blend of adventure, courage, and fitness. Here we are discussing the three finest Himalayan treks to do this year. Though it was not easy to pick the best Himalayan treks because each trek is beautiful in its way, we have put in conjunction the best Himalayan treks that we think you should not miss!
Brahmatal and Kedarkantha are great to do all year round, except in the monsoon. Between July and September, in monsoon, there are treks, in particular, Hampta Pass, Valley of Flowers, Kashmir Great Lakes, and Tarsar Marsar.
If you love to do trekking in snow, you have to pick out trekking between November and April. And, if you’d like to trek in spring, watch out for treks in March and April. Sandakphu Phalut, Khopra Ridge, and Goechala are some examples.
Valley of Flowers Trek
The Valley of Flowers trek is one of India’s most famous treks in the Himalayas. People who haven’t even walked in the Himalayas, have heard about the Valley of Flowers trek. But there is a solid cause behind Valley Of Flowers traditional approval – it is one of India’s oldest known treks.
Having said that, you must note that the Valley Of Flowers trek is not that trouble-free. It is a moderate level trek, with a bit longer trekking days and a steep climb to Hemkund Sahib that will challenge your suffering. So, arrange well for this trek.
Bestowed with the rare and colourful Himalayan flora, the Valley of Flowers is a bouquet of nature which has been calmly embraced in the West Himalayan region of Uttarakhand. The trek of Valley of flowers goes through dense forests along with Pushpawati river. The place can be reached by crossing many bridges, waterfalls and glaciers on the way.
Hampta Pass Trek
Hampta Pass is situated at a height of 4270 m (14039 ft) on the Pir Panjal range in the Himalayas. It is a mini corridor in-between Lahaul’s Chandra Valley and Kulu valley of the Himachal Pradesh, India. From Hamta Village, the nomenclature of the trek was obtained and placed below Sethan village, as part of the trek route. This pass is regularly used by shepherds of the lower Himalayan region, searching for high altitude meadows in the summer, when the dry cold desert of Lahaul is desolate.
The tour starts from the magnetic spot of Manali and takes the tourists through palpable and wonderful places such as Chikka, which is the first stop of the jaunt. The trek also takes the trekkers through the vast fields of Rhododendron, Oak and Pine. The Hampta River also comes in the route. This river is the bridge for the natives of Hampta to reach Spiti Valley and Lahaul. The starting point of Hampta Pass Ranges is Prini Village. The trek then goes uphill to bring a change of outlook. The trail is crammed with abundant greenery and mind boggling landscapes.
Kashmir Great Lakes
The Kashmir Great Lakes Trek is in no need of an introductory essay. It presents the intro in itself. You can draw a prologue of it by just hearing its name. Kashmir is an astounding and breathtaking place and if you are on a Himalayan trek you are compelled to taste the natural beauty and escapade. The Kashmir Great Lakes trek offers a lifespan adventure of fantastic memories that are so magnificently tiring. The enormous quietness of the Kashmir lakes and their virgin beauty is mesmerized. Apart from the lakes, even the deserted milky snow clad mountains stand out in might and pride.
The location of this trek, as apparent, is Kashmir, also known as the heaven of the earth. The trek length calculates around 7-9 days and this trek is often graded as moderate in regards to the trekking challenges. The height circles around 13000 feet and the distance paths are approximately 63 km. On such a beautiful journey you will learn a lot about yourself- in a trifecta – physically, mentally and emotionally. For a trekker, nothing can restore and equip him for those paramount and clashing emotions, whether his body will take so much strain, whether he will make it or not. But the pleasure of reaching the destination is obvious.
