    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.
