Boss Not Giving Time Out? Sign Up For These 5 Short & Easy Himalayan Treks To Destress
So you've used up most of your leave days, and don't have much left. But you really want to take some time off and chill out far away from city life. Here's a suggestion - why not try a short, easy trek somewhere in the Himalayas? We've compiled a list of five treks that are coming up. These are all highly doable, even for beginners. So sign up and book your seat now!
This is a short trek with just a one day-night itinerary which will take you to the top of a ridge peak in the Nag Tibba range of the lower Himalayas. Once you reach the campsite, you get treated to a refreshing cup of tea made with wild mint plucked from the ground. Stay overnight and wake up to a stunning view of the sunrise and the Nag Tibba massif in the morning light. If it is a clear day, you may catch Mussoorie in the distance. Part of your trek route will be through oak and cedar forests, and charming Himalayan villages. This is not a fixed departure trip and requires a minimum of 4 persons to book.
Price: INR 3,500.
This is perfect for a long weekend break. You arrive in Kathgodam and start the climb up mountains through pine forests. You get to see the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary, and spot barking deer, leopards, the Himalayan black bear, and the sambhar. All the time with views of snow-capped peaks of Nanda Devi, Trishul, Nanda Ghunti, Panchachuli, and the Kumaon Himalayan range.
Price: From INR 3,950.
This one is slightly longer - you need about a week off. The 6-day trek to Dayara Bugyal will take you through rolling Himalayan meadows surrounded by iconic peaks of Bandarpoonch, Srikant, and Kala Nag. The Dayara undulating emerald green meadow is seriously beautiful. You may even get to sample local food and culture at a homestay, if any are available. It's an ideal trek for beginners and families.
