15 Best Treks in Himachal Pradesh

1. Parang La Trek


Parang is the most famous trekking route of Spiti since ancient times and connects Spiti with that of Ladakh after crossing the mighty 5,670m pass. This walk has a fantastic view of the mountains and the Pare Chu river. This is a paradise for photographers, as it takes you through the deep gorges and desert surroundings of the Spiti Valley to the vast landscapes of Ladakh to Lake Tso Kar, passing through the beautiful villages of Karzok on the shores of the lake and ends at Lake Tso Moriri.

This lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. This remote trail follows the traditional trade route between the people of Spiti, Changthang and Tibet. It begins in the high-altitude meadows of Khibber, the breeding ground of the famous Spiti horses (Chumur) and also the homeland of the snow leopard.

The trail descends through the Khibber gorge and then climbs Parang La (5600 m), the source of the Pare Chu river, the only one of its kind that originated in India, flows into Tibet and re-enters the country. Spiti. On the other side of the pass, the trail follows a wide valley to the confluence of Pare Chu with Phirtse Phu in Norbu Sumdo.

A river crossing here leads one to an almost incredible change of scenery as we walk towards the Rupshu plains of Changthang, known for the abundance of Kiangs (Tibetan wild asses). Wind swept arid lands, extreme weather, bewitching scenerey and intriguing lives of hard working Nomads.

Changthang with its myraid colours and soul touching vast scapes had caught our undivided attention. Had swept us off our feet would be a better way to express! These photos is a sampling from our tour and extended recce post it. Our main purpose was to document the lifestyle of Changpas - who continuously keep moving to newer pastures throughout the year rearing the stunted goats which produce some of the finest wool - PASHMINA prized all over the world.

Our generation could very well be the last of the generations who will get to witness this rare nomadic lifestyle which is fast changing in recent times. It is a big irony though that the ones who produce the pashmina rarely get to enjoy the final product and the riches that come along. They are forever stuck in their high lands baked by a harsh sun and chilled by severe winters with always a big herd to tend to!

As for the nomads of Changpas, they will make you taste their specialty of dried meat and their tea with salted butter!

2. Spiti Left Bank Trek


Take a taxi to Poh. On the first day of hiking to Dhankar, located northwest, well above the left bank of the Spiti River, the first 5 km are along the road to Kaza. Pass by old junipers, protected from the axe by divine intervention (they belong to the gods). The road heads westward to Spiti Valley and moves towards a long leaning bank called Poh Maidan.

Going up gradually, you stay with the motor path to the other end of this terrace. Then walk down the steeper bank, smaller up, to the west. Stumpy junipers, thorny hawthorn, wild roses and dusty ephedra, which grow even on the driest slopes, give life to Poh Maidan.

On the other side of the Spiti valley, numerous silver stripes fed by Lake Sopona descends the steep slopes, breaking the brown monotony with refreshing vegetation. Crossing a low ridge a sudden patch of greenery appears. This is the village of two houses in Londupdin (3,700 m), well above the left bank of the Nipti Nallah.

The two villages of Mane are visible through the Spiti River. The green of its irrigated fields contrasts sharply with the bottom. Immense slabs of sharply sloping gray rock and brown and yellow slopes reach a crest of Manerang Peak. Crossing the small stream of Nipti halfway between a series of small waterfalls, the path, which continues northwest, crosses next to another large terrace.

Then, passing another small plot of land, the track gradually climbs up to meet the Sichling-Dhankar road. A slightly steeper climb through the fields of Dhankar Village (3,700 m) leads one to the new monastery building. Climb to Lake Dhankar, located in the arid pastures north of the village.

Between the Pin and the Spiti, the long and flat triangle of Pindomor, with its profuse green cover, is a refreshing change for the eyes. On the vast plains of Sublingo Maidan, the road turns north into the Lingti Valley. Shortly after, one can find the link road that takes off from the Sumdo Kaza road.

Then, to the left, the Lingti Valley opens. The village of Chabrang can be seen on the right bank. The much larger Rama Village is right below. Beyond Chabrang, huge terraces, stained with young and green trees, mark the entrance to the steep valley that leads to Demul, the easternmost village of the Bhar highlands.

Also, exploring the monastery complex in Lalung (3,680m) should definitely be on the agenda, initially winding westward around the dry slopes facing south with the wide valley of the Spiti River of many channels below. The Pin River, which emerges from a narrow valley on the opposite side, also widens before encountering the Spiti.

Once past the pedestrian bridge and having passed the village of Sanglung, located on a terrace on the left bank of Lingti, the route extends through the narrow valley of the Demul stream. To the left (south), the Demul Link Road crosses the slopes, ending abruptly on steep cliffs that descend to the main valley of Spiti.

Looking back towards the Lingti, Manerang rises in the distance while, closer, Kamelang dominates Lalung. Until the valley of Lingti, the snow-covered peaks mark the division with the Valley of Gue to the east. Immediately to the north, through a deep valley that descends quickly from the pastures, there is a tall, beautiful ridge covered with snow that extends westward to Chau Kang Nelda (6,303 m).

There is soft, mossy grass (nema) near the water. In other places, there is a low and uniform growth of shrubs that survive with the humidity of the snows that melt late. To be up to date with the lark of the residents of Demul can mean a nice, long day meandering over the pastures before reaching Langza for a night stop.

Going around the hill behind the village, you must go back south to join the direct route over Lara. It is a longer path but with a more gradual ascent and a better view. Then, through a small hump, are the soft, moss-covered bushes of the Chame Meadow (4,400 m).

It is possible to run southwest to Kaza from here in less than 3 hours, through the village of a house in Kagti (4,100 m). The westernmost road of Langza climbs gently from Chame, to the upper basin of the Kaza stream. A vast amphitheater of undulations, which gradually submerges to a sudden drop in the extreme south, meets the eye. At the upper end (north) is the village of Komik, on top of which is the new Tangguid Monastery (4,450 m).

From Komik, one can follow a motor road, circling up Hikkim Town (4,360 m) to reach Langza (4,300 m) through a low ridge. More exciting and offering magnificent views of Chau Chau Kang Nelda is the highest ridge above Hikkim. It approached the diagonal slopes to the northwest of the monastery, so leaving Hikkim on the left, the route climbs more than 250 meters higher, to reach Langza from the northeast.

The fossils are scattered in abundance on the slopes behind Langza. With luck, one can pick up some ammonites in this stretch. One can move north from Demul and then turn west through gently sloping grasslands instead of taking the south route on the Chame route. You will enjoy spending time here with the dokpas (shepherds), tending the dairy cattle and preparing butter for the long winter months.

Climbing gradually to the northwest, the trail slides over the ridge separating the Lingti basin from that of Shilla Nallah. Up close, in the shadow of Chau Chau Kang Nelda, the route passes through Komik and Tangguid. Then, heading southwest along the smooth contours of an irrigation channel once over the small ridge, it comes directly to Langza.

Those who do not want to trek somewhat harder the next day can head to the comforts of Kaza for a 10 km link road from Langza (4,300 m). The strongest souls face a steep descent northwest into the gorge of the Shilla Creek and an even longer ascent that continues northwestward to the tiny village of six houses in Tashigong.

A motor road crosses the low ridge on the side of Spiti (south) and gentle slopes through this ridge lead west to Gette Village. From Gette, an option for those wishing to shorten the walk and quickly reach the main valley is a zigzag path that leads directly to the precipice Monastery of Ki 500 m lower. The road runs towards Kibber (4,120 m) about 5 km northwest.

The camp can be reached by Kibber or a little further on the edge of the village fields. From Kibber, to the right (north) is the route to Ladakh on the Parang La. Directly opposite is the village of Chicham (4,150 m), on the other side of the gorilla-shaped valley of the tributary of Spiti river.

The sixth day of Poh requires moving in a semicircle to the north, around the crest behind Chicham, to the justly famous Ladarcha meadows. The route from Kibber leads to the Parilungbi Gorge along a motor road. On the other side of a bridge, it goes northwest towards the valley of a smaller tributary, which descends from the side of Ladarcha (4,150 m).

The road crosses to the right bank of this stream very soon. Then up the valley to the northwest, leaving Chicham on the left. Near the Dumle village, the narrow valley turns into a gentle decline and the pasture-covered grass field follows shortly after. Climbing gradually from Dumle, the road winds westward towards the Spiti River, which makes Ladarcha appear in an hour.

At more than 4,000 m, Ladarcha is a vast expanse of gentle slopes, carpeted with low shrubs and mossy grass from the highland pastures, and you can camp almost anywhere. It's easy 3 hours from Kibber to Ladarcha. Ladarcha was the site of Spiti's annual barter fair in the old days. In the afternoon you are free to go in search of the Tibetan snow cock and the blue sheep.

To the left (southwest) there is a low elevation, barely higher than the meadows. Mark the edge of the cliffs that descend to the river. Descending towards the southwest to the riverside terraces, the road moves towards the northwest by the left margin of the Spiti. Downstream is the small isolated Chikzur village and across the Spiti River, the largest village in Pangmo.

Climbing gradually, past the strange totems sculpted in the sedimentary soil prone to erosion by the melting of melted snow, one approaches the Takling affluent of the Spiti. Once you have negotiated the short and steep descent and then the steep ascent to the north at the other end of the ravine, Kiato is less than an hour (3,950 m). With more than half a day to spare, one can take a bus or truck to Kaza or continue with Spiti.

3. Chandrakhani Pass Trek


This is an easy 3-day trek with the possibility of varying the duration to adapt to your time. It is exhausting but not impossible to reach Malana (2,652 m) from Naggar in one day, or one can camp for a day near the Chanderkhani pass.

Just pack your trekking gear to conquer this little-explored UNESCO World Heritage Site. Alternatively, one can choose the jeep road that leads to Rumsu (5 km), which gradually climbs through the mixed forest. The constant ascent of almost 3 km takes approximately one hour to reach Rumsu Village (2,200 m), east of Naggar.

Chanderkhani Pass is located southeast of Rumsu Village. From the village, a broad, clear and defined path, frequently used by the locals, leads southeast through the forest to the pastures of Stelling (2 km) and Ghalkrari (4 km).

After Ghalkrari, bhojpatra (birch) trees replace oak and conifer. The track climbs further through the pastures to reach a place called Shillu Pathar(5 km). You can camp anywhere in these pastures after Rumsu, but it is recommended to travel 5-6 km (1-11/2 h) from Rumsu. Water is available in many places and one can camp in a convenient place near a water source.

From the Shillu Pathar camp, the trail climbs gently up the grassy slopes and heads southeast to reach Paror , a place considered sacred by the villagers of Rumsu and Malana. The idols of the local gods mark the place. From here, one can continue towards Dhalakda Pathar (move stone), a water point. This section is almost on the crest of the Chanderkhani Range. From the top, you can see the range of Bara Bhangal to the west, Pir Panjal to the north and Parvati to the east.

The descent to the Malana village (4 km) is steep compared to the ascent to the pass. The road becomes slippery and risky during the rainy season, from July to August, when the high and humid grass darkens the points of support. Two clearly marked trails, both often used, descend abruptly to the southeast through thick coniferous forests to reach the village.

A steep but well-defined path descends south from Malana to Jari. The path descends for almost half an hour through the fields, to enter a forest where deodorants predominate. Then it descends sharply to the southeast for almost 2 hours, to a small concrete bridge over the Malana Nallah. In a moment, this section had no road. The heart-rending descent through the rocky walls of the Malana gorge added to the mystique of the region.

From the bridge onwards, the grade is smooth, descending to the southwest along the left bank of Malana Creek. A one-hour walk takes you to the site of the Malana Power Project dam. Here, some dhabas provide food and tea. A jeep road to Jari (1,500 m/10 km) connects the site of the dam and, hopefully, you can take a taxi on your way to Malana or to the site of the dam.

Alternatively, one has to walk towards Jari. Follow the road (take shortcuts wherever possible) that descends south to a bridge that crosses the Parvati River near the machine house of the Malana Project. When crossing the bridge, exit the road and follow a path to get to Jari on the Kullu-Manikaran road.

For the more adventurous, this is a good option to cross one more pass before arriving at Kasol Village on the Kullu-Manikaran road. From Kasol, board a bus to Manikaran, the picturesque pilgrimage center just 4 km upstream along the Parvati River from here.

Treks in Bengal

1. Sandakphu Trek, Bengal


Why does the path doesn't get old when everything else does? I want to go to this place now for the fourth time. The destination was never a point of contention for me. The bends, the rocky slides, the lands which felt outlandish everytime, the flowers that don the smiles, the innocuous rocks along with a wooden fire - the walk to Sandakphu and Phalut taught me life in a very detailed yet fleeting way.

I learned the rhythm that best suits every walk of life. I understood my personal demons can only be vanquished by myself only. I understood the best way of meditation is walking.

Hit this in Rimbik or Manebhanjyang, about 51 kms from Darjeeling through Silerygaon. The road to Manebhanjang follows the path of Hill Cart Road that connects Darjeeling with the plains. In Ghoom (India's highest train station), exit Hill Cart Road and it will take another hour to get from Ghoom to Maneybhanjang.

Bengal's highest peak, Sandakphu, allows you to explore Lhotse, Mount Everest, Kangchenjunga and Makalu. To get to Sandakphu, you have to walk through the Singalila National Park. It will take you to Tonglu through Meghma (4 hours), which seems attractive enough to take a tea. It is a stop on the road along the trekking route to Sandakphu or Tumling.

Although the Tonglu trails can take you to Nepal, you'd better go to Sandakphu in this race against the rains that come without invitation. An easy trek through bamboo bays will meet you on your way to Gairibas the next morning. Here a small cabin for hikers is built, and you can fall asleep before hitting it again.

Once there, you can make a pit stop and clean the lens of your camera, since a whole forest of rhododendrons extends to Kalapokhri (3186 mts). Pack enough water, since the Sandakphu Phalut trek does not have a source of water. Now, you are only 2 hours from Sandakphu.

While you enjoy the views that have four of the five highest peaks in the world, do not forget to look down at the crystal clear waters of the icy meandering river, Teesta. You need an average of 4 days for this hike. You can also move by vehicle along the picturesque route to Uttarey where your trekking begins. Crossing a beautiful forest of rhododendrons arrive at Chitra where you can set up camp.

The descent can be done to Gorkhey, a charming little town. From there you can connect with Sikkim through a mountain pass of 3400 m (Goeche La), or you can continue down to Rimbick. Descent with a difference in altitude of 1,700 m in three hours to the lowest point (Srikhola at 1900 m altitude when crossing the river).

While you are trekking in the Himalayas, your eyes will stare at a great diversity of vegetation. Trekking in the Himalayas will provide your eyes the view of oaks and maples at lower altitudes. Many sorts of animals like deer, bears, cats, and monkeys occupy the Himalayas. Trekking in the Himalayas is just worth an experience.

While going for trekking in the delightful Himalayas, add all the necessary and essential items in your bag like camping tents, ropes, trekking shoes, rain covers and many more. Experiencing trekking in the Himalayas is not just an awesome adventure to thrill. It is an experience of a lifetime.
