India Walking & Trekking Holidays
Less visited than Nepal, though often as breathtaking, trekking in India offers enormous variety and experience, not just because of the tremendous wealth of mountain landscapes but also as a melting pot of cultural diversity.
Why The Indian Himalaya?
For many, the Himalaya are synonymous with Nepal, but vast tracts of this magnificent range form the northern borders of India. From Ladakh in the northwest through to Darjeeling and Sikkim in the east these beautiful mountains offer a diversity of scenery and culture unmatched anywhere.
For big white peaks there are Kanchenjunga and Nanda Devi and, for the peak baggers, the 20,147ft (6141m.) Stok Kangri. For the more culturally minded Ladakh and Zanskar offer a glimpse of what Tibet used to be like, and, all along the chain untouched villages, remote shrines and monasteries abound.
India really does offer some great off the beaten track trekking experiences.
