In India, that will make you love the beautiful Indian mountains
India is an adventurous adventure paradise, a walking and hiking pool. You will be able to find one regardless of which part of the country you go to. The most famous is on the North and East of India, as there is a broad variety of Indian Himalayas. Below, in India, I will cover ten excursions and walks, depending on your time. I am also going to talk about the degree of difficulty and some other important things to remember during Indian trekking.
- PARASHAR LAKE
Prashar Lake falls 8,9450 feet above sea level in the Mandi district. This lake is truly magical and a saint. To the side of the lake is a mosque. It’s a little floating island right between the lake and what’s peculiar. One is that the depth of the lake is unknown to all. The locals consider this lake to be unfounded and divine.
You can either go hiking or take a bus, depending on the time you have, in order to reach this lake. The trek crosses the woodlands and the paths are not well marked. In addition, this place only contains few visitors. The walk is even more adventurous.
Kedakrkantha is a popular walk mostly in the winter. Located at an altitude of 12500 feet, Kedarkantha is located in the area of Uttarkashi, Uttarakhand (northern India). Kedarkantha is known for its snow and winter trails and you can see the beautiful Upper Himalayans from here. The trek takes three to four days, most of which are guided by several tour operators. This is in fact one of India’s best treks.
We went to snowfall, negative temperatures, camp on a snowboard, and stunning sunrises during the month of January. This trek is difficult for the mind as well as for the body, but it still is worth it.
For both us Indians and Israelis, Kheerganga is a paradise. This is a lush paradise, where most stoners come for cannabis and grass. Kheerganga is not popular for that, but, only in the middle of high mountains, it has hot spring gravel.
Camping was permitted here earlier, but the camps were prohibited because of an ecological imbalance. Thus, visitors stay mostly in Tosh or return to Kasol and stay here after the hot springs. The hike is relatively easy and the paths are established. Kheerganga trek from Kasol takes approximately four hours.
- DHANKAR LAKE
Dhankar Lake is located in India’s Spiti Valley. Spiti Valley is located in India’s northernmost area and regarded as India’s cold desert. As a stony country made of sand, the snow here gets very cold during the winter season. Spiti Valley, which is in the middle of Tibet and India, is also called the middle land of India.
Lake Dhankar sits at 13,600 feet above sea level. This lake is an hour’s walk from the village of Dhankar and the lake provides the Dhankar villagers with water. The lagoon lies in the midst, very magnificent, of snow-covered mountains.
- RUPIN PASS
Rupin Pass is a trek that begins and ends in one state in India. This isn’t cool? The trek begins in Uttarakhand’s last villages and ends in Himachal Pradesh’s Sangla village.
The trek is difficult to complete and takes approximately one week, but the countryside and the scenery change constantly to make this place calm. The forest is climbed, the meadows are passed and the passes are crossed. You reach a height of 15,380 feet in this trek. In addition, one requires 5-6 hours per day to walk about 10 KMs.
Triund is located in the State of Himachal Pradesh close to Dharamsala. The hill trio is fairly straightforward and for this position, you won’t have to have a map, as the paths are well marked.
Triund is one of the most popular tourist destinations so it is mostly crowded, yet again one of the most beautiful areas to visit. Sunrise and sunset take your breath away and the beautiful marble of the Dhauladhar Range at the back is very breathtaking with the view of the Kangra Valley ahead.
- ROOPKUND TREK
Roopkund has everything the trekkers might want. Virgin trees, wilderness, and snow are there. This six-day trek will take you to 16,000 feet from an altitude of 8,000 feet. In addition, on Roopkund lake there are alpine stretches and snow is worth it all.
The main feature of the trip is the sight of Mount Trishul, Chaukhamba, Neelkanth, Kedarnath, Kedar Dom,e, and the trail takes you through the fir, rhododendron, and oak forests.
- WINCH CAMP
Winch Camp is located in Barot, a tiny hamlet that many visitors are currently unaware of. There are two places to walk, one from Barot and one from Joginder Nagar, which go to this location. In order to reach this stage, a walk must take two to three hours to reach via train transport.
This train is a 90-degree gradient from Barot and is known as ‘Khooni Ghati’ Valley The train’ (Murder Valley). In addition to that, you do not miss the sunrise and sunset here after arriving at Winch Camp.
- GEORGE EVEREST
Mussoorie is the most famous trip of Indians during weekends in particular. For people, it’s a great weekend. But ‘George Everest’ is a less popular location that visitors normally don’t know.
George Everest is one of Mussoorie’s places and one has to walk an hour to reach it. It’s a pretty easy walk in a certain direction.
- KHALIYA TOP
In the Munsiyari district, Khaliya Top is located in the upper Uttarakhand region. The snow-capped mountains are a great place to be. The Panchchuli peaks can be seen from here. Behind these peaks is a well-known tale. Mythology says that Mahabrata Pandavas stopped cooking here before heading to the sky. “Chuli” means Chulah by the word “Panchachuli,” meaning cooking stoves.
