If you love challenges and desire to tread the fascinating unexplored trails made by nature or wish to explore an entirely different culture and living style, then trekking in India is for you. Undoubetedly, the trails in the great Himalayan ranges are the ones that will attract you the most, but other parts of India also have vast opportunities for enjoying a trekking expedition. So much so that you will invariably feel drawn towards it again and again once you have experienced its magic.

So what do you exactly come across while trekking in India? Well, the snow capped mountains definitely have a prime place. Accompanying them are the rushing rivers, cascading waterfalls and lush tropical forests, brilliant with scented flowers, chirping birds and dreamily colourful butterflies. Offering a bit of contrasting beauty are the rugged terrains that have their own charm despite being devoid of any beauty.

Adding more variety and fun to your trekking expedition in India are the villages where life is simple but carries a warmth that is unfortunately missing on the plains. The people residing here are not advanced and therefore offer you an opportunity to know, understand and enjoy a lifestyle that is at its most basic and unhurried self.

Moreover, there are a lot more other attractions in form of Hindu temples, Buddhists monasteries etc in store for you while trekking in India. You just need to keep yourself ready for any kind of surprises that might spring up during your expedition.

What is perhaps more interesting is that trekking in India offers every kind of trekker to enjoy himself. Whether you prefer an easy low altitude trek for simple fun or difficult high altitude trek for real challenge, India has it all. You just need to pick your choice and start off a journey off the beaten track.
