The Himalaya Chain is spread northwest to southeast across Asia. The part of the Himalayan chain, which lies within Indian Territory, is called the ‘Indian Himalayas’.  Sikkim is home to many peaks including the world’s third highest, Kanchenjunga. To the west of Sikkim, the range forms a part of Nepal until you reach the border of Kumaun and Garhwal. From here, the Indian Himalayan chain continues through Kinnaur, Spiti, Ladakh and finally to East Karakoram.

Many important places in India lie in the bosom of the Himalayas like Kashmir, Ladakh, Shimla, Manali, Kullu, Darjeeling, Gangtok, Dharamshala, Kasauli, Leh, etc. These places are known for their natural beauty and serenity. Zanskar, Kargil, Kullu Manali, Garhwal, Kumaon and Rishikesh are ideal destinations for trekkers.

The Himalayan experience is a sudden break away from the scorching heat, humidity, noise and scrambling people. The beautiful flowing rivers are well complimented by serene lakes and the glaciers are just spectacular. The waterfalls and the towering mountain peaks take one's breath away. A trek in Himalayas may range from easy adventures for the family to strenuous ones for those seeking high adventure.

The foothills of Indian Himalayas are just ideal for hiking, camping, trekking and nature watch. A good number of nature lovers, trekkers, geologists, adventure enthusiasts, painters and tourists visit Himalayas every year. While most of the people would like to trek or camp in the foothills, scaling a difficult peak is an adventure beyond any description.

The climate and geography of the Himalayan range is complex, so a trip or trek in the mountain range has to be planned meticulously. The winters (November to March) make the mountains almost inaccessible. The best time to visit is between April and November.
