Trekking In India
The Himalayan foothills are just ideal for trekking, Hiking and Camping offering energetic out-door people a different and exciting option for a Adventure holiday. The Garhwal and Kumaon regions of Uttaranchal are the most popular destinations for trekkers, though Chamba and Manali in Himachal Pradesh, Dajeeling & Sikkim himalayas in the north east and Ladakh and Zanskar in Jammu and Kashmir, have interesting trekking routes as well. A trekking expedition is as much a discovery of nature as a discovery of one's self. It also provides a perfect and balanced exercise for limbs, sheds excess body fat, keeps you agile and leaves you fitter than ever before. So pick up your rucksack and get going off the beaten track, on to the Himalaya where the trail seems to disappear over yonder ridge and leads somewhere.........

The Indian Himalaya have attracted geologists, geographers, Trekkers and lovers of nature. They have a strange fascination for artists, poets, photographers and mystics. They are a paradise for Trekkers and mountaineers and are the cradle of thousands of rivers, streams and glaciers. India trekking arranges trekking tours, mountain biking tour, rafting tours, Jeep safaris tours, and cultural tours in this interesting and varied Himalayan region.

Trekking Tips

TrekkingCautions While Trekking in India
Trekking is not an adventure activity that anyone can try out. It comes with a responsibility for the trekker to make sure that no hiking expedition becomes a threat to the environment and to the local culture and traditions of that particular region. While taking up trekking of a particular region within India, check out the details regarding the geographical and historical features, followed by the trek route that you are going to cover, the season in which the trails can be followed, details about where to buy essential supplies and keep a note about the local trekking agencies of that particular region.

Things To Carry
It is recommended that a trekker should take up physical and dental examination before undertaking a trek. The first aid kit that you take with you depends on the length of the trek, its location and the no of people that are taking up the trek tour. Iodine tablets are the best reliable methods for sterlising water for drinking, cooking and washing.

Some of the items a trekker requires while trekking on the higher altitude regions in India: a broad- brimmed hat, UV proof glasses with side blinkers and SPF-15 sunscreen that can protect one against the increased solar radiation at high altitudes. The air can be very dry in the Himalayas, so carrying a scarf and a lip balm is essential. To avoid dehydration always carry a water bottle with you and it's essential to frequently drink water.

Trekking In Indian Himalayas
For the adventurous mountain trekker, few destinations are more magnetic than the Himalayas. Their towering peaks and glaciers represent the ultimate experience in mountaineering, and for many a journey into the Himalayas is really more like a pilgrimage. Three major regions of India penetrate the Himalayas, all of them exceptionally beautiful. In the far northwest there is the province of Jammu and Kashmir, and a gorgeous region known as Ladakh; in the northeast are the provinces of Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh. More than destinations for just mountain climbers, these regions are culturally rich, often dotted with temples and monasteries.

Those traveling to the Himalayas should keep in mind that they will generally be at very high elevations, and therefore prone to the dangers of altitude sickness. The rule of thumb is to always allow time to adjust to the heights, taking it slow. Warm clothes are also necessary.

TrekkingTrekking In Ladakh
The words that are most often used to describe this region are desolate, barren…Sublime!!. Ladakh is easily the most rugged mountain region of the Himalayas. Sandwiched between the Great Himalayan range and the Tibetan Plateau, the average altitude here seldom falls below 3000 M, making it a fairly tough place for those unaccustomed to the vagaries of Altitude. Ladakh is also the land of High passes Khardung la, Phitse la….the names go on and on. Also of great fame is the remote Zanskar, an area that until a decade ago was totally cut off from the main land. Much has been said about this part of the world and much more written, but little prepares you for its sheer beauty.

Trekking In The Passes
The treks in Himachal are the jackpot for trekkers. In this state the treks vary from moderate to strenuous ones, ranging upto two weeks, especially the one done on high altitude passes. When it comes to passes even the state of J&K is not far off.

Trekking in Darjeeling
The hilly destinations of Darjeeling is blessed with well-defined forest trails along the Nepalese border that afford views of Kanchenjunga and glimpses of Everest, Lhotsa and Makalu. Just like the geographical location the climate of Darjeeling is also pretty similar to that of Nepal.

Trekking in Sikkim
To adventure lovers, trekking in Sikkim is an experience of many extents. For those who are looking for excitement plus adventure nothing can match the view of the Himalayan Mountains, which seem to touch the sky. As the adventurer passes his way through a mountain trek, he establishes an easy relationship with nature. Trekkers in Sikkim will be spell bounded by the profusion of plants and flowers.
