        • Agra Taj Mahal

          Agra Taj Mahal

          Agra is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. This beautiful destination is filled with wonderful historical sites including monument, stunning mosque and temple and opulent palaces. One of the most renowned attractions in Agra is The Taj Mahal, constructed as a testament of love by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife. The Taj Mahal has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and is indeed one of the 'Seven Wonders of the World'. Another notable attraction is the ancient Agra Fort.

          Trekking has come a long way since the days of tedious journeys on foot. Today, it conjures up visions of the spectacular northern and eastern Himalayas, the mist-strewn western ghats or the blue tranquility of the Nilgiri hills. India is the ultimate destination for a trekking holiday, offering everything from short and easy excursions to the long challenges on the snowy peaks. Trekking is comparatively undemanding and only requires the stamina to walk long hours and the mental agility to adapt to an ever-changing landscape.

          And the landscape is indeed spectacular. The trekker will encounter rugged hills and mountains, green slopes carpeted with wildflowers and ice cold streams gurgling over boulders and ground pebbles. Far above in the clear blue sky, eagles wheel and bank while golden orioles, scarlet minivets, and white-cheeked bulbuls pierce the pure air with their sweet cries. To take a trek in India is to rediscover the awesome majesty and beauty of nature.

          The highest mountain range on earth – the Himalayas - forms 3500 km of India’s northern and eastern frontiers. The spectacle of the snow-capped peaks, glaciers, pine-forested slopes, rivers and lush meadows of wildflowers cannot be equaled. Peninsular India offers the natural beauty of another kind, clothed in green woodland and fragrant orchards. What follows is a description of the important trekking areas in India and there is also a section devoted to general trekking and adventure tourism information.

          • Trekking in Himachal, India

            Trekking in Himachal, India

            The landscape of this province ranges from the barren rocks and raging torrents of the valleys of Spiti and Lahaul in the north to the southern orchard country of Kangra and Chamba. Treks from Manali include the Bhaga river to Keylong, and then on to the Bara Shigri glacier or over the Baralacha Pass to Leh. Kulu, in the center of the province, is set in a narrow valley between the towering Himalayas and the river Beas and is famous for its temples and religious festivals.

            Treks from here traverse terraced paddy fields and on to remote regions of snow and ice. The view from the Rohtang Pass is particularly spectacular. The town of Dharamsala, in the Kangra Valley area, is the base for treks into the Bharmaur Valley over the Indrahar Pass, and on to still higher passes beyond. Chamba, situated on a mountain above the Ravi River, is named after the fragrant trees which flourish around its richly carved temples.

            Treks from the nearby town of Dalhousie lead to the glacial lake of Khajjiar and to the passes of Sach and Chini. Simla, the summer capital of the British, is a high hill station and the base for treks into Kulu Valley via Jalori Pass and on to the Kalpur and Kinnaur Valleys. This is one of the best Trekking destinations in India.
