Himachal Trek

 
A journey through Himachal holds the promise of a deep and refreshing communion with nature in its varying beauty. The lush river valleys surrounded by snow-capped peaks, the fruit-laden orchards, gurgling streams and the dense forests that echo with birdsong evoke enchantment and delight. Closer to the Greater Himalayan and Zanskar range, delight gives way to awe as one is faced with the stark, haunting landscape of the cold desert. Here, still lakes gleam like emeralds and sapphires amidst towering white mountains that stand aloof and forbidding in their majesty.

The four great mountian ranges and a fluctuating snow line gives Hinachal very cold climate. Though there are some regions which have hot summers and cold winters, majority of the trekking routes fall in those areas which are perenially cold. Thus trekking in Himachal requires adequate preparation to brave the cold wintry climate. For moderate to strenuous treks, the best season is from June to October. It is advisable avoid the winters for trekking.

Some Trekking Routes : From Brahmour in the Ravi valley, the tracks follow the Gaddi trail in the Budhil nala and across the Kugti, Choia and Kalicho passes lead to the Chenab valley in Lahoul with the optionsof continuing to Leh, Spiti or Manali. Driving out of the Ravi valley, the road takes in the Khajjiar meadow and a diversion to the old hill station at Dalhousie. The treks can be divided in few categories like Shorter options, Tough option, Watershed, countless flora and many more.

Shorter Treks : Drive from Kullu and reach the Manikaran hot springs . From here one can take a walk along the Parvati to the secluded village at Pulga. One can take short excursions upstream from here and return to Manikaran. This can be combined with a trek up the Tosh valley bordered by the Pir Panjal range and Papsura and Dharamsura peaks. Another 10-11 day trek can be taken up form Manikaran along the Pir Panjal range. The trail winds its way past Khirganga, Mantalai glacier to the top of the pass on the Kulu-Spiti divide. One reaches Dhankar in Spiti from where one can drive to Kaza and the Kunzum pass into Lahoul or take the Hindustan-Tibet road for Shimla.
