Now, we realize that you haven't left home since march and you are dying to go outside to travel and maybe planning to go to some foreign trips to Thailand, the USA and where not?

But, did you ever thought about the local travel businesses?


How about visiting our own country?

We followed the concept of supporting local businesses and posted a whole 20 treks in North India, that you can complete within a weekend. Well, posted 15 of them and the rest 5 are in this post.


I know, most of you guys are working and can't take long leaves. All of these treks can be completed within a week or maximum within an extended weekend. You can do that. Right?

Awesome…! Keep reading to find out about the treks.


Kedar Kantha Trek

  • Difficulty level: Easy

  • Altitude: ~ 12500 ft

  • The starting point of the trek: Dehradun

  • Best time to visit: September to June




This is a winter trek. This means you get to walk on snow. Kedar Kantha Trek is a simple trek and probably that is its beauty.

Make sure that you experience the starry sky above the ground covered in ice at this location.

Oh, did I forgot to tell you that you get to spend a night on this trek?



Chopta Chandrashila Trek

  • Difficulty level: Easy

  • Altitude: ~ 13415 ft

  • The starting point of the trek: Rishikesh

  • Best time to visit: September to June




This trek starts from the small and incredibly beautiful village of Chopta in Uttarakhand. This trek offers you stunning views that are just unmatched with any place.

The trek goes through forests of rhododendron, oak, and deodar. It also covers a wide variety of terrains.





Dodital Trek

  • Difficulty level: Easy to Moderate

  • Altitude: ~ 13600 ft

  • The starting point of the trek: Rishikesh

  • Best time to visit: September to June






This is also known as the Dodi lake trek and takes you to one of the most beautiful freshwater lakes in the Himalayas.

The trek itself starts from Sangam Chatti, a small hamlet town near Uttarkashi and takes you through dense forests, sparkling streams, deep gorges, and most important, wide valleys and in the distance, snow-capped mountains.

In the end, you can sit in the peaceful surroundings of the Dodi lake.



Bhrigu Lake trek

  • Altitude: ~ 14000 ft

Situated on the eastern side of the Rohtang pass, Bhrigu lake is a small water body that derives its name from the great saint, who is believed to have meditated here.

The serenity of this place leaves no doubt that the trek itself will be awesome too.



Hampta Pass Trek

Looking to recharge yourself?

Just hop on the bus in Delhi to Manali and then go to Jagatsukh village.

This trek covers forests of pine and fir, wide meadows, and streams flowing through them. And in the end, you reach the pass, probably covered with snow. You can complete this trek in about 4 days. Oh, don't miss carrying your telephoto lens in this trek.

Do you want to see a video of the trek?

I have something for you guys at the end. Head over to the last video posted by Ronnie & Barty and you'll be amazed by how this couple showcased the entire trek and that too without uttering a single word. You can even listen to them walking and the ambient sound.

Here's the video so you can watch it right here from this blog.
