14 Oct

'Life should have mountains in it.'

Well said!

If you are waiting for the magnificent view of the mountain road and you wish to trek on the highest mountain road in snow, book your seat for the first winter batches of your favorite Himalayan winter treks in India. Before COVID, the commercial Himalayan treks witnessed a massive crowd approaching Hampta Pass Chandratal trek, Kheerganga Trek, Kedarkantha winter trek, Spiti Valley Winter Trip, etc. However, now, it is necessary to keep a check over the number of people joining these treks. Are you eagerly waiting for winters 2020 for the view of snow-capped mountains?

Now with COVID 19, as we have to follow the trail of social distancing, it is imperative to control the crowd for your solitude and serenity.  Many states have opened up the treks and travel, that was standstill due to widespread coronavirus. In Unlock 5.0, we are expecting more ease in travel and adventure tours to operate with a few restrictions.

As with many trekkers, it is a part of their winter schedule to set off to the mountains during winters for a week or two. Therefore, winter treks in India are the usual way to revive their life for one or all, keeping in mind the safety and offbeat crowd.

Best Offbeat Winter Treks

Here are The Lesser-known Treks in the Himalayas to visit.

Kedarkantha Trek

Kedarkantha peak is a beautiful ridge peak to experience a miracle in the way of god. The trek is full of heavy snow. Kedarkantha Trek is the best winter trek of 23 kilometers where you will come across the sheer beauty of the mountains towering majestically. With their snow-capped peaks and the continental glaciers molding around them, you get a chance to witness the beauty of the top peaks- Swargarohini, Black Peak, and Bandarpoonch. After trekking halfway, you will reach the famous Kedar Valley.

Kedarkantha is a trek that will leave you wonderstruck with its high elevation and beauty of snow-laden mountain landscapes. If you wish to see the magic of Himalayas then, the best time to visit the Kedarkantha trek in winters, when it turns to magical snow dazzling with greenery. The Kedarkantha winter trek route is moderately challenging for beginners, but if you are indeed an adventure enthusiast then, book the Kedarkantha trek package online and embark on your dream in the mountains.

Difficulty level: Moderate to Difficult

Best time of visit: Winter months -December to June

Kheerganga Trek

Kheerganga lies in the northern part of Parvati valley, the village in Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh. Kheerganga's panoramic sky is like a relief to the eyes. Of course, for the trekker's legs. Here, you will visit the holy temple of Lord Shiva, which is known for its hot water spring. It is such a perfect experience to have a divine bath in hot spring water amid snow-covered mountains. This trek surely tests your endurance in its long and winding path and leaves a lasting impression.

Standing atop mountains, feeling the cool breeze, and the inner beauty of nature, Kheerganga trek is something one should experience once in their lifetime.

Difficulty level: Moderate

Best time to visit: June to January

Chandratal Lake Trek With Hampta Pass

Chandratal Lake Trek is a splendid trek located in the Spiti Valley of Himachal Pradesh at an elevation of 4,300 m. Chandratal Trek is truly nature's call; it begins from the valley of Kullu-Manali. Moving forward, you will come across the varied forms of flora and fauna and forests of pine.

Trek to Hampta Pass and Chandratal charms the adventurers' hearts with panoramic skies and lush greenery. This place offers you a much-needed break from your busy lives. The trek then progresses to Hampta pass, a high altitude pass often covered in snow. Beyond the pass, you experience the trip to the enchanting Chandratal Lake, also known as 'Moon Lake' because of its beautiful crescent shape.

Difficulty level: Moderate

Best time of visit: June to November

Chadar Frozen River Trek

To what extent do you love the thought of stepping on the frozen sea?

If there is a paradise, it's in Chadar. It is a unique lifetime experience of walking on a frozen river under the crystal clear sky surrounded by high ranges on all sides. Ice slides, waterfalls, and caves, along the flowing turquoise river, are just worth a magical experience.

Chadar Frozen River Trek is one of the lesser-known treks in India, but it is a mountain trek with astonishing views that you should not miss. It is the most exciting experience in Ladakh for a trekking enthusiast. The veil connects the village of the Zanskar valley deep in the mountains to chilling. Therefore, to the frozen Zanskar sea. Due to its remoteness from the contemporary world, the chadar trek is one of the most unbearable regions in the world, and jointly the most amazing places to check out once in a lifetime.

Difficulty level: Moderate

Best time of visit: December to February

Prashar Lake Trek

Prashar Lake is one of the offbeat treks that you should definitely visit. The high altitude of Prashar Lake offers you a spectacular view of snow-capped mountains and gives you a glimpse of peaks. The lake is at an elevation of 2730 M above sea level, and the best part is that it revolves around the parameters of the lake. It is a quaint trek exposing you to some beautiful vistas as you trek.

The enormousness of the mountains makes you feel so little and humbled and the sheer stamina of the scenery makes all your plans go for a toss.  The trek offers you magnificent views that can leave you feeling nothing short of baffled and bewildered.

Difficulty level: Easy

Best time of visit: December to February

Low crowd

An extraordinary sense of achievement

It was an amazing experience indeed and certainly my best decision… was the best trek ever! The scene are so beautiful and the entire place is so clean that you will feel as if you are in a foreign land. Amazing trip. The whole experience of trekking was really amazing. Moreover with the appointed guides and crew members, the fun went further ahead. Entire Hampta Pass itinerary provided by Himalayan Adventure Trips was planned in a very convincing way and was very fulfilling in every aspect. Totally satisfied with Team HAT. Thanks a lot Himalayan Adventure Team.. for making this trip a memorable one for one and all. Awesome job by all the tour operators and service providers. Thank you for making this a great experience...

Our trip to Prashar lake exceeded our expectations on every level. From our very first interaction with Himalayan Adventure Trips, this Adventure tour company demonstrated care and concern for understanding the needs of our group, and the experiences.

Snow Camping was perfectly organized by HAT. We were a group of 15 people from Kerala and came for some small hike with Snow camping. We had an awesome experience in the woods , location can't be any better and food was also freshly prepared for us. Tea was served as we wanted which is really good for us in cold. Thanks team Himalayan Adventure Trips

We did roadtrip to Chandratal Lake. It was a great experience as it was my first roadtrip and Himalayan adventure organized it so well. We enjoyed stunning and spectacular views of Spiti area and the night stay at Chandratal lake was so soothing experience. Thanks a ton HAT team for this superb lifetime memory! Looking forward to enjoy many other trips with HAT.

Even though not as popular as other trekking agencies, these guys were very professional and conducted one of the most difficult treks in an Excellent way. The trek leaders, support staff and the cooking staff were excellent. They really run the trek on their shoulders. I remember the cooking head was saying to me that he has done pin Parvati nearly 50 times and there hasn't been any incident whatsoever, I realized it why. The technical staffs really did amazing job to get everyone cross the difficult and risky boulders and tricky sections. Appreciate the whole team. The management team though can improve on communication and advertising more.

Yunam Peak is open for those who look for a High Altitude challenge. Its duration is short compared to the others of comparable height. One is on foot only for 2 or 3 days. One part of the walk is entirely loose stones/boulders, the other part is just snow. Himalayan Adventure trips provide comfortable accommodation before and after the trek at their campsite in Naggar. Their trek guide was competent and the other members were proficient in the work they had to handle.

It was my first trek and I choose Sar Pass trek as suggested by Himalayan Adventure trips representative. They also helped me with my packing and preparation for the trek which was really useful. I was able to complete trek successfully with a little difficulty since it was my first trek, but everything was very organized with good food.

It was a nice short & sweet trek...one way trek was around 4-5hrs depending on your speed..it’s an easy trek, if anyone doing a trek for the first time, I would highly suggest to start doing 30min walk /run daily starting 3weeks before the planned date. In the end don’t forget to enjoy every step:D Come back with some great experiences to share !! Cheerio :)

I climbed Mt Deo Tibba with Himalayan Adventure Trips, it was a successful attempt and things were planned well. The staff is nice and we had some fun too. I really liked the local dishes they prepared and their willingness to help me for anything. I will definitely go for next expedition with them.

This trek is the place and the trek to take , if it all you have any doubts on your physical capabilities or want to challenge your body and mind together! What a trek it was! The hardest route, the most difficult terrain and the longest hike I have ever done. Still, this is my best! Our family did it together and it is our best one. We had the longest route - 45km and it took almost 5 days to complete. It was a night trek and we scaled during the midnight amidst moonlight and snowing. What a thrill

I would say it was a lifetime experience to me and my family members.... it was snow fall when we went there the 7 hours of walk was totally worth it...

Such magnetic place which would attract you from miles away. It's attraction would not be light even if you reach up to it and walk on it. Just a nature's marvel which makes everything else look smaller and worthless in front of it.

A trek treat on Himalayas. So much of knowledge about the other side of mountain life seems to have made a tad richer in experience and of course the humility and good lessons to lean on to that only mountains can teach.
