Trekking in India has grown in leaps and bounds in recent years, with the current trekking scenario looking very promising. Being so vast and diverse in its topography, India is endowed with exceptional trekking opportunities.
With so many trails, areas and spots blessed with unspoiled wilderness, we see countless number of Indians and foreigners hitting the Indian trekking trails each year. Be it a Himalayan trek, a trek in the Western Ghats or a trek to explore the Dhauladhar and the Aravalli range, trekking in India is the best way to travel the lengths and breadths of our country.
Apart from the physiological benefits that trekking brings in your life, it also gives you a chance to ramble through the prolific forests of our country, discover quaint tribal villages and hidden waterfalls, understand cultures that you never hear of and witness the marvels of nature unfold before your eyes.
It’s best to be prepared with some necessary trekking gear before we hit the trails. Gears like a good pair of trekking shoes, a sturdy trekking bag, trekking poles, season appropriate tents and sleeping bags and a survival kit.
Trekking in India boasts some of the most stunning trekking routes in the world. We truly are blessed with the best. While you enjoy the gifts of nature, don’t forget to do your bit and keep it the way you found it. It is imperative that you show respect to the wildlife, have a good judgement of creating no/ low impact and create awareness among your fellow trekkers to do the same. Seize this opportunity and set off on your next expedition.
