Which Are the Best Treks in the Himalayas?

Here are some of the best treks in the Indian Himalayas--
Chopta Chandrashila
A sweet spring trek, the Chopta-Chandrashila itinerary covers Uttarakhand’s splendid bugyals, fiery red rhododendron blooming in the picturesque slopes, a lake where the Chaukhamba massif reflects and wavers in the crystal waters, the revered temple of Tunganath, and the exhilarating experience of a steep climb to the summit of Chandrashila. Comprehensive and of matchless beauty, the duration of the trek makes it for a perfect long weekend sojourn.
Dayara Bugyal
A meadow of clean green carpeting of the summers turns a frosty, rolling snowfield white in the season of snow, giving this all-seasons trek a dual character. Spanning 5-6 days from Dehradun to Dehradun, this short and breezy trek is a beginner’s delight. Choose this one as a Himalayan friends trekking destination and make the best moments out of days spent in the resplendent meadows. After night fall, the tops of the Rolling Meadows become like the humpback whales diving against a phosphorescent sky!
Go for the heart-pounding thrill of ascending a height of 16000 ft, bursting in from dense forest shadows, into wide meadows covered in snow and onto the turquoise lake glistening in the heart of blinding whiteness. Roopkund trek is surreal and enshrouded in mystery. Hundreds of human skulls lie inexplicably at the bottom of the glacial lake. Is it a prehistoric generation, a murdered clan? Let your imaginations run wild and fearful amidst this wide snow desert!
Brahma Taal
Himalaya Mountain trekking is riddled with inconveniences in the winter and not many itineraries remain open for access. Brahma Taal is one of the rare few mountainous destinations you can find your way to in the harsh Himalayan winters.  The entire hike happening on fresh snow makes Brahma Taal irresistibly exciting. The frozen lake shores of Bekaltaal and Brahma Taal can chill one to the bones. You need to crampon up and take firm grip of your walking sticks to step effectively in the treacherous snow as you hike towards Brahma Taal summit. Gobsmackingly beautiful close-quarter peak views from the top wraps up this great trek.
Bhrigu Lake
Comparable to the alpine swiss meadows, the verdant rolling fields on the way to Bhrigu Lake are breathtakingly gorgeous. The meadow ways to the lake changes color and texture as they roll out and beyond, making this one an out and out grasslands trek until the snow stretch right around the lake starts. What makes this trek so special and convenient is its proximity to Manali and people contact the Himalayan trekking companies to take them on this trek. Also, get ready to get amazed on this 5 day trek in Himalayas with the spectacular views of the Dhauladhar Range around this valley!
Har Ki Dun
A cradle shaped vale beneath the Har Ki Dun peak, the Har Ki Dun valley is a mesmerizing spot in nature. The way to the vale bends through Govind Wildlife Sanctuary and enters the light forests of Pine. The path is punctuated with occasional food stalls for the trekkers, a cluster of thatched roofed hut for a village along wheat fields. The river Supin sprightly and sonorous flows by. The trek happens to be longish, though easy to scale the gentle gradients.  This Himalayan adventure trekking can be extended by another day to make it to the Jaundhar glacier.
A gem of a trek destination in the northeast Indian Himalayas, Sandakphu is the highest point in the Singalila Ridge, bordering Nepal. This Himalayan trekking expedition is highly sought after for brilliant views of the Kanchendzonga massif it offers from various vantage points. Take this trek to witness the beauty of Singalila National Park, the glorious Kanchendzonga massif, and the warm hospitality at the Nepalese and Gorkha tea houses.

When to Visit?

Except for peak monsoons when road slides, sudden cloudbursts, and flash floods can disrupt the roads, every other season have their unique charm. Tread the Himalayan path in summer-spring for the blossoms that light up the slopes and in autumn for brilliant clear sky views. In the winters, temperatures dip to subzero and make expeditions frightfully extreme. The Himalaya trekking tours cost may vary from season to season, so confirm the same with your trekking operator well in advance.
