Best Winter Treks to do in India
India is the most popular tourist destination in the world. It has a lot to offer, but what if you want to explore some winter treks? Winter is the best time to visit India, as it is milder than summer and there are fewer crowds. Here are some wonderful winter treks that will make your vacation unforgettable:
Stok Kangri Trek
Stok Kangri is the second highest peak in the Stok range, with an elevation of 7,243m (23,938 ft). It’s also known as “The Headless Iceman” as it has been nicknamed by mountaineers because it resembles a human head.
Stok Kangri Trek offers spectacular views of various peaks including Trisul and Nanda Devi, which are visible from this trek route. The entire journey takes 2-3 days at an average pace but you can shorten this time if you choose to go on one of our camping trips along with your guide or pack your food as we do for our clients who want complete privacy during their stay at base camp!
Pin Parvati Pass Trek
This trek is one of the best treks in India, and it’s also an easy one to get to. You can start your trip from Kullu or Manali, but I recommend starting in Kullu because it’s less crowded and has more hotels. The route goes through some beautiful scenery with snow-capped mountains along the way. Once you reach Pin Parvati Pass (4200m altitude), many other trails lead down into settlements like Manikaran or Rohtang Pass.
Chadar Trek is a frozen Zanskar River in Ladakh. It is the most popular winter trek in India and can be done from mid-February to mid-March. The trek starts from Sankoo village, which lies at an elevation of 3200m above sea level. The route passes through lush green forests with snow-covered peaks of Sholay peak (6237m) and Nubra River Gorge on either side of it. This makes for some stunning views as you travel through valleys filled with snow-covered mountain peaks and glaciers!
The trail passes through several villages that offer accommodation options along the way including Zingchen Chokorong Camp or Lamayuru Lodge at various points along your journey depending on which direction you want to go next after completing Chadar Trek!
Kedarkantha is a mountain peak in the Garhwal Himalayas of Uttarakhand, India. It lies south of Nanda Devi and north of Trishul Peak at an elevation of 6,749 meters (21,924 feet). The trek to Kedarkantha is considered one of the most popular treks in Garhwal.
This route starts from Mussoorie and goes through Mussoorie Cantonment towards Anandpuri Bazaar via Pithoragarh Road or NH211 till Jog Falls on Srinagar River which you can also cross by river rafting or kayaking during your holiday here. Then head further to reach Almora town by bus or train where you can either continue by foot or hire a taxi/ jeep car to go further towards Rishikesh & Haridwar on your way back home after completing this trekking activity!
Deoriatal Chandrashila Trek
Deoriatal Chandrashila Trek is one of the most popular treks in India. It is not for beginners, but if you are physically fit and mentally strong then this can be a great adventure for you. The trek starts from Chandrashila village which is located within 30 km distance away from Shimla and ends at Bhagsu Lake near Manali.
The best time to do this trek would be from December to February when there is less number of tourists visiting the Himalayas so that you can enjoy your trip without being bothered by other people who might want to take photos of yours or ask questions about what happened during your journey!
If you plan on going on an extended trip like Deoriatal Chandrashila Trek then it might not be such a bad idea either because if done properly then these trails can last up to 6 months long depending upon how much time each person requires before moving on to another destination!
Winter treks are the best way to spend your winter vacations in India. They provide you with a complete escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and let you experience nature at its best. If you’re looking for something adventurous but still want to save some money, then winter treks are worth considering as an option for spending your free time in India.
The biggest advantage of taking up one of these treks is that they don’t cost much at all! You can easily find out about them online or through word-of-mouth referrals from friends who’ve been there before (or better yet—have already done it). This means that even if you don’t have much cash on hand by this point in time (which shouldn’t be too hard since most people tend not to travel during their summer months), there should still be plenty left over after paying off any necessary expenses associated with booking accommodations such as hostels/resorts etcetera).
