My breakthrough has always been the adventure and rush of excitement resulting from trekking and any chance of contact with nature. Moreover, you will never have a shortage of trails or walks to quench your appetite for adventure if the “hiking bug” really has bitten you. This applies especially to God’s Own Country, Himachal Pradesh. In Himachal Pradesh, I have compiled a list of 9 such hiking trails, the difficulty varying from simple to modest. If you plan a hike in Himachal-Pradesh in the near future, that can be your guide.
1. Triund Trek
Besides being one of the most picturesque treks in the Himalayas, Triund is one of the simplest. You can easily finish this walk for a few days by having a free weekend for a short ride. The Triund trail may be short, but comparatively steep. If you feel tired, however, your breath will rest ample. Walking through a host of oaks and rhododendrons you will be wonderfully refreshing.
Furthermore, Triund can be a blessing with many songbirds who are frequenting the area if you are a passionate bird lover and bird watcher. This 10-km-long trek will surely be a feast to your eyes, as you see the magnificent Dhauladhar on one side and the Kangra valley on the other.
2. Kheerganga Trek
Kheerganga can be your best bet if you look forward to a quiet and relaxing trek in the Himachal. It is on the far end of the valley of Parvati. In reality, it is a beauty store with the best of nature. In addition, it is also mythologically significant. Many hiking enthusiasts flock to this place each year in search of peace and nature.
Kheerganga is very enchanted and adorned with a spring of hot water, a bathing tank (Parvati Kund), and Shiva’s temple. If you go to the fluvial Kheerganga River, you are bound to spell in many picturesque towns, waterfalls, and majestic snow-capped mountains.
3. Bijli Mahadev Trek
I can not miss speaking of Bijli Mahadev temple and of Himachal Pradesh. It is in the lap of the powerful Himalayas. The village is surrounded by majestic cedars and one of Himachal Pradesh’s most holy places.
Here you can see the Bhuntar Airport and the lovely valleys of Kullu and Parvati once you reach the top of the hill.
4. Jogini Falls Trek
Mountains and Waterfalls are a pair of nature lovers forever. The greens and brown waters of the mountains, and the foamy waters of the waterfall, make an unmissable symphony. Jogini, Jugni, is one of the most beautiful sites in the region and is very close to Manali. This 1-day walk takes you on a wonderful journey through the waterfalls of Vashisht through narrow roads, small rivers, and gardens.
You will be accompanied by the Rohtang Pass and the magnificent river Beas. If you, too, are a photographer like me, you should really treat yourself. In addition, you will also visit the Mata Mandir Jogini.
5. Hampta Pass Trek
It starts from Manali and eventually reaches Chika at an altitude of approximately 10,100 ft. Now, we mustn’t forget the greenery, serenity, and calmness it offers you when talking about the trail. Thank you for your thoughts with river Rani and mountain stretches on one side. You’re going to get to Balu ka Ghera from Chika. You can find a view of the magnificent ranges and valleys of Dhauladhar, lively and with lots of lovely flowers.
You will cross the beautiful village of Hampta on the road to the Hampta Pass and feel the relaxing impact of the whole of the valley. Chandrataal Lake, decorated with white tops and winds that create magical beauty is their ultimate destination.
6. Pin Parvati Trek
Starting in the picturesque village of Barshaini is the Pin Parvati trek. After that, the trekkers have to go through a series of fascinating trails to Rudranath Camp. You can see the magnificent green forests and flourishing meadows when going through Rudranath to Kheerganga.
Here also, you’re going through the lovely Spiti valley countryside and the luxuriant Kullu greenery. In this location, you’ll experience a mix of gradual ascent, steep slopes, snow-capped mountains, steep passes. From here on, you can cross one of Himachal’s highest peaks.
7. Pin Bhaba Pass Trek
The similarity between The Pin Bhaba pass and the Pin Parvati pass trek is not unusual. However, with a wide variety of views and knowledge, they are entirely different. Pin Bhaba Pass provides the ideal combination of Himalayan greenery and aridity as the confluence of the Bhaba and the Pin valleys. Bhaba is heavily covered by the thick forests of the Alps consisting of the birches of Oak, Silver, and Pine. The picturesque scenery of the thick, tall trees along the Bhaba River will be passed at the beginning of the trek. There are also large grasslands that bloom with lovely flowers.
8. Churdhar Trek
This summit is one of the highest peaks outside the Himalayan range also known as Churi-Chadni-Dhar, following the Shri Chureshwar or Shirgul Maharaj, as it is believed locally to be the old inhabitants of this area. This trek has three approaches to the summit, the most common being Nohradhar. The first hour of the trip is usually a little rough. Afterward, however, the hike becomes easier by climbing in the dense pine forest, lovely wild meadows, and a sprinkling of pine trees relatively natural.
9. Friendship Peak Trek
The Friendship Peak Trek, known for its perfect trekking paradise, is one of the most frequently visited hikes of the Indian Himalayan Region in Himachal Pradesh in the Pir Panjal area at an altitude of 5239 meters. After reaching the summit, you should treat your eyes. High against the background of the silver horizon of the Grand Himalayans and Dhauladhar, the fascinating view of the Pir Panjal range will surely steal your heart.
