Best Snow Treks in Himalayas

Mountains entice nature lovers and adventure seekers all year, but snow treks in the Himalayas guarantee a high level of excitement. While summer treks promise a relaxing time in the mountains, winter treks are a true test of the trekkers’ endurance.

So here are some exciting times when the treks actually do the trackers’ endurance and promise the most beautiful snow capped mountains are views which will be in their hearts forever. 

Dayara Bugyal trek

Dayara Bugyal comes in one of the most beautiful high altitude meadows in the country, located in Uttarakhand’s Uttarkashi district in the Gangotri Himalayan range. This meadow, perched at 3408 metres above sea level, contains everything a trekker might want.

The trail to Dayara Bugyal starts in Raithal, a little town 30 kilometres outside of Uttarkashi. The 8-kilometer ascent to Dayara Bugyal is steep and challenging. Before reaching Dayara Bugyal, a vast meadow, the hiking course passes through dense coniferous forest. This climb can be done at any time of year and provides a variety of views depending on the season. It is also an attractive skiing resort for skiers in the months of January and February.

Panchachuli base camp trek

Panchachuli Peak, one of the largest snow-capped Himalayan peaks at the end of the eastern Kumaon area, is a popular tourist destination in Uttarakhand. The peaks have religious importance for the people, and the Base Camp is an excellent alternative for a short trip for adventurers. Trekkers usually go to the Panchachuli Peak’s base camp between May and September.

The journey to Panchachuli glacier passes through breathtaking landscape, including snow-capped mountains, gushing streams, alpine meadows, and a diverse range of flora and wildlife.

Everest base camp trek

Being a traveller I can say that one of the top things on the bucket list to do is the Everest base camp Trek. The Everest Base Camp journey offers breathtaking vistas of the world’s tallest peak, Mt. Everest, as well as other eight-thousanders such as Cho Yu, Makalu, and Lhotse. En route to Everest Base Camp, experience the ethnicity, local culture, and beautiful architectural elements of Tengboche Buddhist monastery at an altitude of 3,856m.

Learn about Nepalese traditions, the rhythm of their modest lifestyle, and Sherpas’ rustic, welcoming culture. When ascending the southeast ridge, use South Base Camp, and when climbing the northeast ridge, use North Base Camp. 

Sa_r Pass trek

Sar Pass, perched at 13,800 feet above water level , within the Parvati Valley of Kullu district, within the state called Himachal Pradesh. S_ar literally means lake because while trekking the traveler has got to undergo a little frozen lake. It gives the sweetness of a lush green environment and may be a photographer’s, artist’s, and nature lover’s dream. The Sar Pass journey traverses through a number of the foremost picturesque sights starting from woods to meadows to ice blankets, ready against a backdrop of breathtaking Himalayan peaks draped in snow.

Phulara Ridge 

A ridge is the point where two mountain slopes meet. So a trip along a ridge is nearly like walking on a knife’s edge, with only the mountain’s flanks sliding down on each side of you. A few Himalayan hikes include minor ridge sections. However, spending an entire day trekking along a ridge is unrivaled. If you’ve ever done a summit climb, you’ll know that you’ll spend about 20-30 minutes at the top. This is where you may get a magnificent glimpse of the surrounding mountains. On this hike, though, you’ll be at a high height of 12,000 feet for the entire day (4-5 hours!). 

A wonderful section of walking on a mountain ridge may be found on the Phulara route. This means you’ll be walking for a time on a narrow elevated crest, with slopes on each side of the crest/ridge line going down. Naturally, both sides of the mountain will be wide open, giving you the sensation of strolling on  

Goecha La trek 

The opportunity to get close to the iconic Mt. Kanchenjunga isn’t the only reason this journey is popular with both trekkers and trek leaders. Goechala is a rare “high” altitude track among Sikkim’s treks, taking you near the world’s third highest peak. It is well-known for its spectacular views of Kanchenjunga and other high Himalayan peaks. The fact that some of the famous Himalayan peaks seem up-close and real size on this trail fascinates us the most about this walk. On the fifth day of the walk, for example, we will camp right at the base of Mt. Pandim. The peak of Mt. Pandim appears deceptively close by the time we reach summit day, as if it is only a day’s journey away!
