Uttarakhand: Your first Himalayan trek
This trek is a microcosm of everything that you would see of do in the Himalayas. The trek goes through coniferous forests, grasslands and in the end, ascends a peak.
What iO thinks
A relatively milder and shorter trek, this hike from Deorital to Chandrashila packs in quite a lot. As you hike from one treelines to snowlines, you would see the entire natural diversity of the Himalayas in one go. The trek ends with an ascent of the Chandrashila Peak – something that can be done without technical expertise. Travel on this trek if you’d like to dip your toes into what the Himalayas offer.
