Trekking

 

Trekking in the Indian Himalaya has never enjoyed the glamour of its Nepal counterpart. There is no Everest or Annapurna base camp, no strategically-placed muesli serving guest houses along trails, no Thamel to buy gear from or Irish Bar to come back to and unwind afterwards.

Instead many of the longer Indian trekking trails lay claim to nothing at all, no guest houses, no chai shop, no people, sometimes not even a proper track. Yet that precisely is there charm – in the opportunity they offer to be alone with nature.

The absence of infrastructure & the wide swings in weather however means that for anyone coming in from outside, even from the next valley, trekking can present logistical problems; arranging for food, guides, gear, tents et al.

In tacit recognition of this most Indian wayfarers stick to the beaten track – religious walks to the four Dhams (Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, Yamunotri & other well-marked routes like those to Hemkund, Amarnath & Mani Mahesh.
