Treks for families

Treks for families

The best gift you can give your child is the gift of the outdoors. Trekking with family teaches kids early lessons on how to love nature, enjoy a trek, and respect the rules of the wild. This ensures that they’ll be equipped for almost anything later in life. Treks for families teach kids not to take for granted the comforts of their home, to adjust to inconvenience, and to rough it. Here are some of the top options for treks for families.

1. Valley of Flowers trek, Uttarakhand

The gorgeous Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand is a perfect option for family treks. You’ll be walking along easy paths, and will have a taste of river-crossing and a slightly steep incline at Hemkund Sahib, but you’ll also get to explore waterfalls, glaciers, towering mountains, mighty rivers and quaint villages, while trekking with family. This beautiful valley is located in the Nanda Devi National Park, and is best visited in July and August as the flowers are in full bloom during this time.

9. Dudhsagar trek, Goa

Trekking with family to Dudhsagar Waterfall takes you across state lines, from Maharashtra to the border of Karnataka and Goa. The children will love the overnight train journey, and will trek through the tropical forest of Kulem, surrounded by trees and wildlife, until they reach the waterfall. En route, this family trek takes you across streams, makes you scramble over slippery stones, and walk along railway tracks and dark train tunnels to get to the waterfall. This four-tiered waterfall cascades down from a height of over 1000 feet, sending a spray of mist in all directions and churning the water below to milky white, hence the name Dudhsagar, meaning 'sea of milk'.
