Indian Trekking Places

Indian Trekking can be magical. You can walk through icy deserts and tropical rain forests, climb vast Himalayan peaks or run down expansive rolling meadows, all without ever crossing a national border.

Kumara Parvatha Trek, Karnataka

Kumara Parvata

The second highest peak (at 1712 metres) in Kodagu, Kumara Parvatha is a popular peak to climb. However, the 15-kilometre trek is no cake walk, although it does offer some scenic views. The starting point is on temple road, approximately a quarter of a kilometre from the Kukke Subramanya temple. While water and food is available at Battara Mane (the second pitstop), there are no washrooms. October to February is the best time to trek.

Roopkund Trek, Uttarakhand

RoopKund

For those who enjoy more daring experiences, this trek presents an opportunity to view Roopkund's famous Mystery Lake. The glacial lake is also known as Skeleton lake on account of the skeletons that reside at the bottom of the lake. Trekking can take anywhere from a week to 9 days, and the best time to visit is between May and October. This challenging trek requires one to be in decent shape, given that is situated at a high altitude (4,800 mts). There are three trekking routes: via Mundoli, Kathgodam or Lohjang.

Chembra Peak Trek, Kerala

Valley of Flowers Trek, Uttarakhand

Possibly one of the most beautiful treks in India, the name 'Valley of Flowers' holds true: this exotic valley is transformed into a colourful kaleidoscope stuffed with wild flowers such as zinnias, petunias and poppies. It also hosts several species of butterflies and endangered animals such as the mountain leopard and blue sheep. A moderately challenging climb (the entire trek can take a week), the 10-kilometre valley is situated at approximately over 3,600 metres (above sea level), and is ideal to visit from between June - September.

Chadar Trek, Ladakh

Chadar Trek
