The Himalays are the trekker’s delight. The adventure component adds the spice of uncertainly, raising the stakes for you to test yourself in unfamiliar territory. The rugged beauty of the mountainscape of Himalaya is too difficult to resist for adventure seekers. The religious shrines in the Himalyas, glaciers, snowbelts, meadows & other high altitude terrain are the attractions. From time immemorial the hill folks are accustomed to it. Credit must go to Adi Guru Shankaracharya for exploring routes in Himalays. The best time for organizing these treks is in March, April, May, June, September & October.
