  • Trip introduction

    The Gaj view trek is gorgeous 6-day experience, packed with the high rising trees and hills of Himachal. You'll explore picturesque campsites, remote mountain trails and quaint hillside villages. You'll spend two days, trekking through the scenic woods of pine and oak with tall mountain peaks darting in and out of view. Beautiful views of hills in the Dhauladhar range, decked up with snow-capped peaks, await from vantage points along the trail. A great mix of culture, nature and adventure, this Gaj view trip is perfect for travellers looking for an easy trek with a short itinerary.

    A minimum of two travellers are required to book this Gaj view trek.

    Destination

    You'll visit little-known villages and hills in the Dhauladhar mountains on this Gaj view trek. En route, you'll find yourself moving through green meadows, thick forests and budding tea plantations. The trail often goes alongside the Gaj river, fed by the melting glaciers of the Himalaya. This off-beat adventure in Himachal Pradesh is perfect for amateur travellers since it offers only two days of climbing on relatively easy trails.

    Destination highlights

    • Experience the mountains of Himachal on a 6-day itinerary.
    • Trek through scenic hills, forests and villages.
    • Stay in tents with picturesque views.
    • Try your hand at river crossing.
