Book Tour and Activities on the Go!
The Himalayas are replete with many amazing treks, many of them are known and others are a little offbeat. One thing that you will find in common for all of them is that they are all wonderful and worth giving a try.
Talking about offbeat, the Rajgundha trek in the Kangra region of Himachal Pradesh is a lesser known and must try experience. Starting from the tea heaven of Palampur, the expedition leads out to Bir, then onto the quaint little village of Barot before moving onto the beautiful and colorful valley of Rajgundha. On the way, you will come across some amazing sights like waterfalls, green valleys, wooden bridges, meadows of many hues, and many other such beautiful places before finally arriving at your campsite. The best part about the campsite is its untouched and pristine beauty, that becomes evident when the night takes over, covering the sky with billions of stars.
The overall experience of the trek can be summarised in one word, adventurous.
