In 2020, Coronavirus, as we all know, has taken away all of our plans and adventure. Now we all look at 2021, and we hope for a lot of adventure opportunities to knock on our door. The Himalayas destination, like Uttarakhand, offers the ultimate adventure with almost every trek in the state with the arrival of the summer in India. So we look forward to 2021 and see what adventures it will unveil!
The beautiful gardens of the Rhododendron in Uttarakhand, the cold dawn and dark season; the echoes of the temple’s clock, the fresh air; and the Maggi aroma prepared somewhere have again marked a pleasant trekking year, 2021. This North India summer adventure vacation resort in 2021, provides the perfect opportunity, on easy, moderate and demanding trails that are both beautiful and informative, to enjoy the best walking experience in Uttarakhand.
Har Ki Dun Trek
You say Har Ki Dun’s trek is a ‘Heavenly Stairway.’ It is true, in fact, because this is the beautiful path to Swargarohini peak that the Pandavans have taken. Har Ki Dun is the best summer trek in the Himalayan Uttarakhand from the months of March to June, which is offbeat, less trodden and incredibly beautiful.
Har Ki Dun is a remote valley that can be reached via ancient villages dating back to the 3000 years, alpine meadows, glacier basin, moraine ridges and pinewoods accessible from Govind Pashu Vihar in Garhwal. The trekking path promises a brilliant view of Himalayan peaks such as Bandarpunch (6316). Actually, the Har Ki Dun is the only way to see the Swargarohini peaks – I, II, III.
It is a cage-shaped valley that runs along the river Supin, where wild animals like black bears and swamp deers can cross paths. Himalayan Monal will probably be spotted on this trek from a lovely village of Sankri, a large variety of avifauna including an Uttarakhand state bird. Har ki Dun makes one of Himalaya’s best walking and nature tours and should therefore be added to your list.
Nanda Devi Base Camp Trek
Because Nanda Devi has been recognized as one of the world’s best mountains, its base camp has been listed in Uttarakhand as one of the best treks. During this journey, which begins in the State’s Upper Kumaon region, you can get closer to the twin peaks of Nandas Devi Mountain, as it is closed to visitors, since this second highest mountain in India would otherwise have been the most close encountered.
Nanda Devi East Base Camp is a challenging tour, and therefore is for seasoned hikers who will endure 14 grueling days to get the gratifying view in Uttarakhand of a less trodden and surreal region. Gori Ganga River is a permanent partner on this expedition. The initial climb is relatively easy, but with higher altitudes the difficulties gradually increase. While climbing, the trekkers can see surreal distant villages, lush pastures and beautiful waterfalls every few kilometers.
A number of turns should be expected during this trek between Oak and deodar forests and narrow crests. You can also pay homage to the temple of Nanda Devi, which is located in the shadow of Martoli’s powerful peak. The path crosses also the forests of birch and rhododendron that can melt your heart with the amazing views. In the final part of the trek you will cross several ice bridges and rocky boulders, but you can make up for everything that you have had to go through the majestic Nanda Devi post.
What is more interesting than the origin of India’s most holy river, Ganga. There are plenty of other reasons why you are going to fall in love with Gangotri – Gaumukh Trek. There’s no reason enough to go.
From one of Uttarakhand’s most popular religious destinations, Gangotri, this tour offers a surreal panoramic view of the Himalayan peaks such as Shivling (6543 m), Mt. Meru (6660 m), and Parbat Sudarshan (6507m).
On this adventurous path, which runs through small and large valleys, the Bhagirathi River always gives you a company. It is worth repeating this tour in Uttarakhand, and every time you try it, something new will be found and learned.
