India is consecrated with the mighty Himalayas that offers plethora of opportunities to hike and try adventures. There are several treks in India which are suitable for different seasons. Out of all, some are categorized as winter or snow treks also. The word Himalaya means “Abode of Snow” and due to its higher terrain, the Himalayan region receives an ample amount of snow especially on treks. These treks become too scenic like a snowy wonderland after receiving the snowfall. The treks will give you the snow experience like never before.
If spring is the season for nature lovers, then winters are for thrill seekers. The snow treks let you walk through winty grasses, snow laden trails, frozen lakes and verglas made of streams. Here we introduce you to some of the Best Winter Treks in India that we are organizing this winter.
