Trekking has come a long way since the days of tedious journeys
on foot. Today, it conjures up visions of the spectacular northern
and eastern Himalayas, the mist-strewn western ghats or the blue
tranquillity of the Nilgiri hills. India is the ultimate destination
for a trekking holiday, offering everything from short and easy
excursions to the long challenges on the snowy peaks. Trekking is
comparatively undemanding, and only requires the stamina to walk
long hours and the mental agility to adapt to an ever-changing landscape.
And the landscape is indeed spectacular. The trekker will encounter
rugged hills and mountains, green slopes carpeted with wild flowers
and ice cold streams gurgling over boulders and ground pebbles.
Far above in the clear blue sky, eagles wheel and bank while golden
orioles, scarlet minivets and white-cheeked bulbuls pierce the pure
air with their sweet cries. To take a trek in India is to rediscover
the awesome majesty and beauty of nature. The highest mountain range
on earth – the Himalayas - forms 3500 kms of India’s
northern and eastern frontiers. The spectacle of the snow capped
peaks, glaciers, pine forested slopes, rivers and lush meadows of
wild flowers cannot be equaled. Peninsular India offers natural
beauty of another kind, clothed in green woodland and fragrant orchards.
What follows is a description of the important trekking areas in
India and there is also a section devoted to general trekking and
adventure tourism information.
