Today, we live in an age that is such that we depend more on machines than we do on our own selves. Long drives are more fun than a walk at the beach, and getting to climb atop a jeep in the jungle safari would surely score more points than taking a hike.
But nothing is more experiential in essence when it comes to making journeys than the walk. Here, you are absolutely free and unbound, ready to take whichever route you choose, whether it is the zigzag meanderings of streams or the straight trails of long roads.
So, we have brought you some of the best hiking trails India has to offer! Let’s take a look:
Roopkund Trek – to the mystery Skeletal Lake
Perched atop the Himalayas in Himachal Pradesh, Roopkund is one of the most mysterious lakes in the country. Covered in snow, and scattered with human skeletons, it is the kind of place that would either heighten your curiosity or send shivers down your spine.
This trail is made by several travellers in the peak months of May – June and getting in touch with India group tours now could get you a sweet deal to this enigmatic Himalayan hinterland!
2. The Valley of Flowers – A palette of hues from above
The valley of flowers is hidden in the Himalayan ranges of Uttarakhand and is home to some of the scenic wild flowers you will ever come across. From Blue Poppy and Brahmakamal to Cobra Lily and Geraniums, finding some of the most rare blooms is an easy job here.
Experience the Valley of Flowers in the Spring and monsoon months to get a full idea of what natural hues can form so effortlessly, even without any human intervention!
3. The Kanha Nature Trail – Scenic and Mysterious
Not many Indian travel agencies will tell you of this scenic and yet mysterious nature trail that is set outside the core region of Kanha National Park, close to its main gate.
The tall canopy of Sal trees and the meandering trails that move inwards are what make this little nature walk so scenic. There are watch towers to climb atop and get the bird’s eye view, and you also get accompanied by a professional to keep you safe and outside the core regions.
These are 3 of the most scenic places where you can experience only if you take a walk – and there is so much beauty in this simplicity. So, why are you still not packing your bags?
