Blessed with some of the best trekking routes in the world, India is a trekker’s paradise. Whether an active vacation enthusiast or one who just wants to take pleasure in the scenic outdoors, trekking is a magnificent way to take in the sights of our country while remaining active. Here’s a list of some amazing trekking trails that are not only lesser known but also peaceful and are sure to erase all memories of stress and chaos of your city.
Sattal is paradox of sorts, it’s a great place to unwind, but also, it’s a great place to rough it out. The seven lakes, surrounding rhododendron and oak forest, white mountains, make it a meditative trekker’s paradise. You can trek and trek, without anyone to bother you. Based on each traveler’s preference, Sattal has clearly etched-out trails, easy, moderate and challenging
Challenging Trek: This one starts from V Resorts Sattal, and although it is just a 2 km expedition, its steep incline, almost 30 degrees and rocky path, make it one of the more tough treks. The scenic pine and deodar trees offer respite
Normal Trek: A 6 Km trek (to and fro) takes you to Surya Gaon, a little village. Cutting through pine and oak forests, a quaint temple, undiscovered lake, the trek is a chance to discover the region around
Easy Trek: Two easy and leisurely treks give travelers’ a chance to laze around, explore the place alongside getting their bit of adventure. A 4.5 Km trek (to and fro) along the Sattal lake is a combination of paved roads and forest cover. Another 4 km trek (to and fro) is to Subhash Dhara, a waterfall deep into the forest. It’s ideal for birding.
