Trekking in India for beginners

While India is a superb trekking destination for experienced climbers, there are also plenty of routes and trails suited to those who are just starting out. As you begin planning your visit, it’s crucial you identify the treks appropriate for beginners. Typically there are three classifications of difficulty level to choose between: easy, moderate and hard. Generally speaking, treks with gradual ascents that take 3 to 5 days to complete are considered on the easier side. Expect to walk around 5-8 kilometres a day.

Ideal treks for beginners include:

  • Hampta Pass: 4-5 days
  • Trek to Beas Kund: 4 days
  • Prashar Lake Trek: 2 days 
  • Chopta Chandrashila: 4 days 
  • Chopta Tungnath: 4 days
  • Dayara Bugyal: 6-7 days

  • Sar Pass Trek: 5 days 

Trekking sites in India

Several different areas within India’s borders can be explored on a trekking trip. Each area has unique highlights and geography, and all of them are worth exploring on foot. Begin your trekking adventure in Northern India, where you’ll have the difficult choice of trails that wind through the iconic Himalayas mountain range, which will include travel through the northernmost state of India, Jammu and Kashmir (commonly abbreviated as J&K). Inside J&K is where you’ll also find the region of Ladakh, known as the "land of high passes” and renowned in the worldwide trekking community for its remote mountain beauty and culture. 

And before you book your trip consider choosing one of the many treks located in Southern India. In this region, you can expect your treks to take you through numerous terrains. You'll walk along rolling green hills, past majestic architecture, diverse wildlife, and beside tea and coffee plantations.
