Himachal offers the most amazing and variegated trekking options to the adventurous minded: cold deserts, high mountains, dense forests, alpine pastures. The degree of difficulty can range from moderate to strenuous to extremely difficult, and the elevations from 2000 meters to 5500 meters. The duration can stretch from 2 days to 8 days. And, true to its unique claim to being the DEV BHOOMI where the Pandavas roamed in exile, every valley has its own Devta, and every trek is imbued with its own mythological aura, adding a unique facet to one's travels in the remoter areas.
The state also has 2 National Parks and 32 Wildlife Sanctuaries: many trekking routes pass through these protected areas and there is every chance of spotting the unique wildlife of these temperate forests including the highly endangered snow leopard, western tragopan and musk deer.Although every district of the state can lay claim to popular treks, the prime trekking areas lie in Kullu, Kangra, Chamba, Kinnaur, Lahaul and Spiti and upper shimla.
