Trekking


The Garhwal is one of the frequently visited areas in the Himalayas. It lies between the Punjab to the West and the Nepal Himalayas to the East. This is one area in the Himalayas, which has something to offer to all the mountaineers, the trekkers, the naturalist and the photographer. As Garhwal houses some of the holiest of Hindu shrines, it attracts millions of pilgrims every year from all over the Indian sub-continent.

The Garhwal Himalayas have attracted mountaineers from all over the world, to attempt and scale the mighty peaks in this region. A Garhwal trekking tour in this area, combined with visits to the holy temples of Gangotri, Kedarnath, Badrinath and Yamunotri, will add spiritual experience of the Himalayas as you watch the stream of people bathing and lining up in front of the temples to have a view of holy shrine, and to wash away, the sins of a lifetime.

As a reflex level, trekking is a physical: a simple desire to pick a path and measure up to the terrain and the elements. The adventure component add a the spice of uncertainity, raising stakes for you to test yourself in the unfamiliar territory. On a deeper level, trekking is a bridge between ancient lifestyles. As a evolution from a simple walk into a more self sufficient venture, trekking requires simplification, a reduction to portable basic, and implicit trust in your ability to define what you need to live.

The Garhwal Himalayas are a trekkers delight. The beauty of Garhwal hills is picture-perfect, a fusion of high mountain valleys and lakes, of many streams and among India's greatest rivers. Comprising the districts of Uttarkashi, Tehri-Garhwal, Pauri-Garhwal, Dehra Dun and Chamoli, the Garhwal hills are a vertible paradise for trekkers.
