The most natural way of exploring the majestic beauty of Himalaya is trekking. Trekking infuses a feeling of comradeship, self reliance, discipline, punctuality, team spirit besides it inculcates a sense of perseverance. The vast expanse to the highest mountain chain, sheer magnitude of its snowy heights and indefinable feeling of joy and elation that they evoke in the mind of a trekker, make a trek in the Himalaya an experience to be remembered. Are you interested and wish to gain such a wonderful experience? Pack your backpack for the thrill and join Trek India’s 6 days sojourn in one of the dreamiest valleys – Kullu Manali, nestled in two beautiful ranges- Pirpanjal and Dhauladhar of western Himalaya in Himachal Pradesh. Picture postcard perfect Manali, with its fertile valleys, evergreen thicket and crystal clear gushing rivers which set against the backdrop of towering mountains provide everything that an adventure seeking youth desires.
