Treks In India Top 10 To Do Before Turning 30

India is home to some of the worlds beautiful
treks on its vast Himalayan mountain range.
Though age is no barrier to those who are
passionate about their mountain adventures, these
ten treks are best taken before you turn 30
they are difficult, offer jaw-dropping views of
the Himalayas, and the perfect way to find your
inner peace.

The Most Popular Treks

1. Chadar Trek, Ladakh
The Chadar Trek, also called the Zanskar Trek, is
one of Indias most popular tracks and for a good
reason. Given the extremely high altitude, the
Chadar river freezes to form an ice sheet during
the winters, over which one needs to walk to
complete this trek. The sheer rush that comes
with walking on an ice sheet in one of the
countrys most far-flung corners makes this a
trek that ought to be on your bucket
list. Anyone willing to go on this trek should
be ready to brave temperatures of up to -35
degree C at night, sleep in caves, and walk up
vertical cliffs surrounding the river. Though not
for the faint hearted, it is not everyday that
you get experience nature in its harshest and
most beautiful form.

2. Great Lakes Trek, Kashmir
If youve ever dreamt of seeing Shangri-La, The
Paradise on Earth, think no further than the
Great Lakes Trek that starts in Sonmarg. Think of
turquoise lakes, snow-clad mountains, lush green
valleys you have it all on this mesmerizing
trek in Kashmir. During the monsoon season, the
snow melts to open up the roads for a stress-free
trek, and wildflowers can be seen popping out of
every corner.
It isnt considered the hardest of treks to do in
spite of the steep climbs and drops, and can be
undertaken even by first-time trekkers. It climbs
to a maximum height of around 13,750 feet at the
Gadsar Pass.

3. Roopkund Trek, Uttarakhand
One could call Roopkund the Mecca of Treks in
India for it features in the Top lists of
almost every avid trekker. The trek originates in
Lohajung and gives you almost everything you need
from a trek stunning campsites, vast never
ending meadows, high altitude ponds, snow-clad
mountains, green carpet peaks, among a lot
more. The trek takes you to Roopkund, The
Mystery Lake, where more than 500 skeletons of
human beings from the Palaeolithic age can be
found. It is believed that sudden hailstorm
caused the death of the people in this region as
early as 800 AD. There are many temples in the
area as well where religious festivities take
place throughout the year.

4. Goecha La Trek, Sikkim
Goecha La is a high mountain pass located in
Sikkim, away from the regular Himalayan trails of
Kashmir, Uttaranchal, or Himachal. Overlooking
the Kanchenjunga, the trek is full of riveting
rivers, stunning Bugyals, thick forests, and
goes into a rocky terrain towards the end. The
trek reaches an altitude of 14,000 feet and is
famous for the presence of Rhododendrons (species
of woody plants) of a myriad of colors during
spring. It is not everyday that you get to walk
through picturesque landscapes with Indias
highest peak in the background.

5. Valley of Flowers Trek, Uttarakhand
The Valley of Flowers trek sits in complete
contrast to the vast sprawling meadow style
popular treks of the region. If time is a
constraint or if youre fan of shorter quick
treks, there isnt any trek that is in the same
league as Valley of Flowers. There are more than
a million species of flowers in the valley
ranging from poppies to daisies in addition to
various types of butterflies and insects. The
trek is on the pilgrim route to Hemkund and is
one of the easier treks to do over a short 3-4
day period.

The Most Challenging Treks

6. Pin Parvati Pass, Himachal Pradesh
Pin Parvati Pass was discovered serendipitously
when Lord Arthur Dane was in search of an
alternate route to Spiti Valley. Sitting at an
altitude of 17000 feet, this cross-Himalayan
trek involves multiple arduous climbs, requiring
high physical stamina. The region that spans
from the lush Kullu valley to the dry Spiti
valley also gets abundant snowfall and rainfall
throughout the year making life all the more
difficult for climbers. If physical strength is
on your side, this multi-cultural trek will not
just satisfy your adventure thirst but also your
wanderlust.

7. Stok Kangri Trek, Ladakh
It isnt surprising that most of Indias most
difficult and picturesque treks traverse through
the region of Ladakh. Climbing higher than Pin
Parvati up to 20000 feet, the trek gives you
breath-taking views of glaciers and high altitude
glacial lakes. Given the height the trek goes to,
it is meant for seasoned trekkers and tests your
stamina to the limit. On a bright day, one can
get sight of the majestic Mount K2 from the
summit of Stok Kangri. It also helps that trek
follows multiple temples and monasteries, giving
an insight into life in the remote mountain
ranges of Ladakh.

8. Kang Yatze, Ladakh
There is absolutely no dearth of stunning treks
in Ladakh. Kang Yatze in Markha Valley is not
just a beautiful trek but also probably one of
the most difficult treks you could undertake in
India. At the highest point on trek, you will be
21000 feet above the sea level the highest
point among all the ten listed here. While the
Kang Yatze second peak doesnt require any
special mountaineering skills, the main peak
involves rope climbing at the scary altitude of
21000 feet to hit the peak. The peak is
dome-shaped and the entire region is covered with
snow, making the trek even harder.

9. Bali Pass Trek, Uttarakhand
The Bali Pass is a trek that can challenge you to
the extremes. While the scenic views from the
trek isnt superior to the more popular treks in
Uttarakhand like the Har Ki Doon, it is the pure
joy that comes from surpassing a pass as steep
and arduous as Bali that makes this one for your
pre-30 bucket list. The constant steep climb
over the deep snow, treacherous boulders along
the way, narrow ridges, and the extremely sharp
descend combines to make this trek an incredibly
challenging one.
24
10. Panpatia Col Trek, Uttarakhand
One of the most difficult treks in the Garhwal
region of Himalayas, the Panpatia Col Trek links
the two popular holy shrines Kedarnath and
Badrinath. It is believed that a priest from
yesteryears used to traverse this route every
other day to perform rituals in both the shrines.
For most of us mortals, the trek takes a hard 12
days to complete. The trek goes through one of
the largest snowfields in the region and passes
by the Panpatia Glacier as well. Involving
moraines, crevasses, and huge icefalls this
legendary religious route gives you the chills,
in all sense.
