Get in Touch with Your Spiritual Side

Trekking tours in India usually cover the full gamut of the Himalayas and include several holy sites and temples. These centuries’ old places have their myriad histories that are interesting even without their religious connections. The sacred sites of Kedarnath, Rishikesh and Badrinath attract millions of devotees every year. The Yamunotri valley which is the source of the sacred river Yamuna is one of the four sites in India’s Char Dham pilgrimage. Further up, the Ladakh valley presents one of the best trekking places in India. Take in the pristine natural beauty of the landscape. Visit the famous Drukpa monastery situated at an altitude of 3600m. The fortunate can experience the beautiful Naro Gentuk festival held at the monastery every 12 years. 

Reach the top of the world

The trekking packages at Red Chilli Adventure are designed to cover some of the best peaks in the country. Our tours stretch across Ladakh, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh, and include both moderate and difficult trekking routes across the landscape. If high altitudes are what you’re after, these trips are for you. Ladakh offers some of the highest and most beautiful summits in the country. The Stok Kangri peak entails an uphill trek of 6150m in less than a week. This trek is one of its kind in Asia. The summit provides stunning views of the great Karakoram range and the K2 and Saser peaks. The Kongmaru La peak is another summit covered on a trek in Ladakh. The 5200m peak presents excellent views of Nandadevi. 

Discover local flora and fauna

The best trekking tours in India let you discover a diverse range of terrain and vegetation as well as all the local flora and fauna. The trek to the Hemis National Park in Ladakh at 3600m shows you several high-altitude birds and animals like the snow leopard, Tibetan wolf, Tibetan sheep and the Golden eagle. It’s interesting to see how the change in altitude and climate affects the habitat of these animals. The Leh-Ladakh valley is any ornithologist’s dream! You could spend hours watching various species of migratory birds nesting in the high deciduous trees. The local foliage too is a thing of wonder and is a perfect adornment for the landscape. 

Live the stories

Trekking tours in India come with their share of legends and local folklore. The best trekking guides in India take you to the heart of these stories so you can have a first-hand experience of the tales. An interesting place you can encounter on one of our trekking tours is the freshwater lake- Dodital situated at 3024m in Uttarakhand. Legend has it that the elephant-headed Hindu God Ganesha chose this as his abode- making it a sacred place for Hindus. The Tso Moriri Lake trek in Ladakh also has an interesting story behind its name. According to legend, a Chomo (Buddhist nun) woman, riding on a yak had been carried into the lake. The drowning woman had cried out "ri, ri"- an exclamation of fear in her native language before going under water. That is how the lake got its present name– Chomoriri. These ancient tales and legends add a whole new dimension to the places that you visit making them even more intriguing. 

Find out if you have what it takes

Trekking in India is something that can be done by both beginners as well as pros. You can choose a trek depending on the nature of the terrain and the level of difficulty. However, every trek requires a basic level of training to prepare you for the trip. High-altitude treks especially test your stamina and endurance levels where you are often required to trek for several hours at a stretch without stopping. The Kang Yatse summit at 6400m takes 9 to 10 hours to climb from the base camp at 5300m. This is advanced level trekking and requires disciplined training. 

Discover local flavours

Our popular trekking packages in India range between 3 nights to 17 nights and require overnight stays at campsites. This offers the chance to explore local dwellings and encampments and gives an interesting insight into the way indigenous people live. The remote parts of Changthang that stretches from Tibet to the extreme northwest of the Kunlun Range is home to the Changpa nomads. They live in small encampments in tents made of black yak hair. A trek in the area allows you to witness the lives of the Changpa up close and even visit their tents. Similarly, other treks across Ladakh and Uttarakhand let you see the way local people live and taste the local cuisine. What makes Red Chilli Adventure one of the best trekking companies in India is our expertise in the area and knowledge of the habitats of local and nomadic people. 

Trekking in India is an invigorating experience that exposes you to the elements and tests your mettle against them. It is the best possible way of getting to know a place and takes you back to the basics. It’s you. On foot. Out in the wild. Capture the untouched beauty of the landscape and share it with other travellers on TripAdvisor. Take a deep breath and fill your lungs with fresh air. Be humbled by the great snow-capped Himalayas.
