Trekking India Himalaya

I am planning a trekking trip to the Western Himalaya but the trip must occur next April 2017. Probably a bit early but such is life. I am tentatively considering the Source of the Ganges and Kuari Pass treks in the Garhwal Himalaya. I am open to to just about any week to two week treks in Himachal Pradesh and/or Uttarakhand regions. Any recommendations or travel experience to this area?

Re: Trekking India Himalaya

This has to be our all time favorite trek in the Himalayas. Great views of Everest, a good trail, wonderful tea houses to stay in and almost continuous views of some of the tallest peaks in the world will keep your attention during what is typically an 11 day trek.

Re: Trekking India Himalaya

Few tips before get start trekking:-

Physical condition: - It demands degree of physical fitness. Physical cardiovascular system with aerobic exercise.
Mental Condition: - Mental preparation is more complex than physical condoning.
Camping and cooking equipments: - This depends on the style of trekking, but if you are totally equipping yourself then you could consider the following:
Study rain-proof tent.
Sleeping bag with liner and foam mattress.
Backpack, day pack and probably a duffel bag to keep in storage in hotels while on trek.
Altitude Sickness, and The Trekker Medical Kit

Re: Trekking India Himalaya

Very nice to hear that you are taking up this trek. All the best for your trekking.

Rightly mentioned by ankitksinghh, you will find many routes and trek options. You can look forward to Kunjapuri Trekking in Rishikesh and Neelkanth Mahadev Temple Trekking in Rishikesh. They are worth an experience.

@ahana2607 you have got a great collection of treks, they are just awesome, even I might consider taking up trekking sometime this year.

Rishikesh and Shimla are both very interesting places to visit - apart from the trek angle. Rishikesh is said to be the yoga capital of the world, with almost every third or fourth place a yoga centre of sorts - but it's also a great place to relax and contemplate, especially a bit higher up on the hills, with a view to the Ganges, and a great place for rafting too. Shimla is the quintessential colonial relic in Northern India, though a bit crowded these days, and a nice town to base oneself in for exploring the region.
