In the land of lush valleys, green meadows, apple and apricot orchards, and snowy mountain peaks, there are dozens of treks to take you into a mountain paradise. But there are some treks in Himachal Pradesh that are absolutely stunning.
The trekking routes in Himachal are different in every season. In the summer, you’ll explore forests scented with pine and cross sparkling streams, whereas in winter, you’ll have snow-covered trails and white and grey landscapes. Here’s your Himachal trek guide to plan a big Himalayan adventure.
The Hampta Pass Trek starts in the verdant Kullu valley and takes you into the desolate Spiti valley. No other trekking route in Himachal offers such dramatic changes in the landscape, making this one of the top treks in India.
On this trek, you’ll see open meadows with sweet grass, herd of grazing sheep and cattle, and clear streams, all on the first few days of the trek. As you trek, you’ll experience the thick, mixed forests of Jobra, the rolling meadows of Chikha, the streams at Balu Ka Gera and finally, you’ll end at the gorgeous turquoise Chandratal Lake. This adventure of trekking in north India is suitable for fit beginners, but experienced trekkers will love it.
