6 best trekking trails in India for a refreshing adventure

Much of the world today is well connected and accessible by some mode of transport or the other. There are, however, places that are untouched and therefore capable of maintaining their natural beauty in the purest form. Beholding the beauty of these places in person can be a highly refreshing change. Since these places are often remote, trekking is the only option to get to them and a wonderful way of getting in touch with nature. India has many such wonderful trekking trails that take you to undisturbed remote destinations.

Here are the best trekking trails in India for the most amazing experiences.

Beas Kund, Himachal Pradesh

This trail takes you right to the source of the River Beas that flows through Manali. The lake out of which the river flows is surrounded by lush green grasslands and three mountains. The trek takes around 5-6 hours from Manali. However, the trek can be done at a slower pace and stretched over two to three days for a more immersive experience. The best time to do the Beas Kund trek is between mid-June and mid-September.

Valley Of Flowers, Uttarakhand

The Valley Of Flowers is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is also known for being one of India’s oldest trekking trails. This trek requires a day of acclimatisation, before commencing., as your body will need time to get used to the change in altitude. It is then followed by three days of trekking at the end of which the view is totally worth the effort. The valley is 10 kilometres long and carpeted with vibrantly coloured flowers. The best time to visit the valley is between the months of July and September.
