What You Should Know More About Trekking in Uttarakhand

  • Q. When is the best time to visit Uttarakhand for trekking?

    You can plan a trip to Uttarakhand all year round, the best time to visit is during summers (March to June) and winters (October to February).

     

    Summers are considered favourable due the awe-inspiring beauty and pleasant weather. Monsoon is not considered favourable as there lies a risk of landslides in this region as it receives maximum rain during July and August.

     

    Winters are perfect to plan a holiday here, though some tourist sites are inaccessible for tourists due to snowfall. Still Corbett, Haridwar, Auli, Nainital, Valley of flowers, Dehradun and Ranikhet are best destinations you should visit in winters.

  • Q. How can I reach Uttarakhand? How far is it from Delhi?

    Reaching Uttarakhand is easy because it is well connected with other cities via air, rail, and road.

     

    By air: There two domestic airports (Jolly Grant in Dehradun and Pantnagar near Nainital) and regular flights land in Dehradun.

     

    By Train: Rail network offers convenient travelling to Uttarakhand. Similarly, it’s well connected to Delhi and major state highways.

      

    By Road: It is 372.8km from Delhi via Meerut Pauri NH.

  • Q. Which are some famous winter treks in Uttarakhand?

    If spring is the season for nature admirers, winters are meant for adventure junkies.

    Here is a list of some famous treks in Uttarakhand which you must try:

     

    • ChoptaChandrashila trek: One of the easiest and famous treks, it brings you to the pristine lake, Shiva temple, concealed hamlets, spicy cuisines and welcoming hospitality. The expedition starts from Ukhimath taking you to Deoriatal Lake via Sari Village.Chopta is a heaven for bird watchers. In Tungnath, trekkers witness world’s highest Shiva temple after which they proceed towards the summit of moon rock i.e. Chandrashila at 4000 m.

     

    • Dodital winter trek :It’s one of the best for those who are trekking for the first time. Starting from SangamChatti, it takes you through various villages like Agoda, Bebra, Manjhi. At Manjhi, trekkers plan an overnight camp. Next day they ascend to Doditallake that is deemed as the abode of Lord Ganesha. Following day, trekkers climb to their final destination, Darwa Pass.

     

    • DayaraBugyaltrek :Perfect for amateurs, this trek starts from Barsu. Trekkers trek to Barnala lake after which they reach Dayara which is blessed with huge meadows. Its slopes are best knowing for skiing. After this, trekkers ascend to Bakariya Top, the final destination of this trek.

     

    • Nag Tibba winter trek : This trek allures adventurers, nature lovers and Hindu devotees from all over the world. Local people trek here to pay a visit to Nag Devta (the Snake God). Starting from Dehradun, this trek passes through hidden hamlets like Pantwari, Nag Tibba, Devalsari and finally ends at Thatyur.

    • Kuari Pass Winter Trek : Lord Curzon’s greatest contribution to India, this trek starts from Joshimath, takes you down to various lesser known passes and eventually the highest point of trek, Kuari Pass. From Kauri Pass, one gets the breathtaking view of the adjacent peaks like Nanda Devi, Chaukhamba, Kamet, Dronagiri etc. On your downwards trail, you’ll find Auli, one of the best snow skiing destinations in India.

  • Q. Which are some famous summer treks in Uttarakhand?

    When the entire country is getting baked in the sweltering heat, you may want to escape snowcapped Himalayas, where you’d enjoy the cool breeze, icy streams and chilly nights under the starry skies.

     

    Here are some of the options you can consider :

     

    • Roopkund trek: This high-altitude lake that stays frozen most of the year, thawing for just a month. With frequent rainstorms and snowstorms, this gives you a break from the scorching sun but is famous for the human skeletons that surround the lake. The trail begins through meadows and climbs to barren to heights, testing your stamina and endurance. This top summer trek is not advisable for first times unless you’re very fit.

     

    • Harki Dun trek: This top summer trek is perfected with a trip to Jaundhar glacier. It takes you through Govind Wildlife Sanctuary, where flora and fauna thrives during summers. Over here, you’ll be introduced to the marvels of Himalayas and get an opportunity to trek on a mountain glacier.

     

    • Rupin Pass trek: This top summer trek takes you deep into mountains that involves long days of walking and an ascent to Rupin Pass, so it’s not recommended for beginners. It offers plenty of unusual sights to see : a village that perches dangerously on the edge of a cliff, waterfalls that are frozen in mid flow and the icy rupin river that is as blue as the sky above

    .

    • DayaraBugyal trek: Considered to be one of the most beautiful summer treks, visitors describe their experience here as nothing short of a fairy tale. Trekking through India’s most beautiful meadows, surrounded by towering Himalayan peaks, it offers you a chance to camp in the scenic locations at every stop.
