Easy Treks in India

Easy Treks In India For Fresher’s

Trekking, as the dictionary defines it, is to go on a long arduous journey, typically on foot. Sounds quite daunting right, but don’t quit just yet! One can hike, tramp, march, slog, trudge or plain old walk: sometimes to discover or to simply to get away from the mundane world. It works like magic every time.

Even though in order to trek anywhere all you need to do is walk, a trek is nothing like your usual walk in the park or a morning stroll. Walking at high altitude is a totally different ball-game altogether and depending upon the length you plan to go up-to, adequate preparation is the most important thing. The length of the trek is another important factor to be kept in mind. Generally an easy trek stretches for about a couple days and with a decent terrain not involving much highs and lows is considered an easy trek. An easy trek generally involves a not so stressing walk of 4-5 kilometers in a day.

Here is a list of some treks that can be enjoyed by novice trek enthusiasts –

Chandrashila Trek

Deoriatal Chandrashila Trek

Located at a height of 4000 meters, this trek can be covered within 5 hours. This is the best forest trek amongst all our treks. If you take the section between Deoriatal lake and Bhrujgali camp, it is sometimes stunning to imagine how much variety jungles can be in. There are sections with thick wooded trees, there are moss-covered trails through enveloping tunnels and there are trails that weave through clearings in the jungles. There are hundreds of birds to sight and photograph. If there was a birders’ trail, then it has got to be Deoriatal. Finally, the summit climb to Chandrashila. As you climb up, one by one, all the major summits of Western and Eastern Uttarakhand pop into view. Nowhere on a trek that is so easily approachable do you get to see all these summits so close. Standing on top of Chandrashila summit is a blessing and not an achievement.
