5 Himalayan treks you can’t miss this monsoon

  • Himalayan treks

    Come monsoon and the nature dances in complete glory to the pitter-patter of rains. It’s as though the whole of earth is draped in a beautiful green cloak. And while the romantic tone is set, trekkers can't wait to buy an air ticket and rekindle their passion for trekking.

    Climb. Hear your heart in your mind.
    Drink. From the aura of the mountains.
    Feast. On the nothingness of the moment.
    Dig. Through the softness of the sand.
    Smell. The sweetness of the earth.
    Nail your camp under the stars, under any spot you’d call home.
    Breathe. Walk. Pause. Moonwalk to soul-stirring experiences, this monsoon.
