#3 TRIUND, HIMACHAL PRADESH
18 km from McLeodganj, this place is a must visit for its Triund Trek. The food options are plenty, and accommodation is also available. The view will take away your breath, as you see the gushing waters running past you and the unbelievably clear skies.
#4 ZANSKAR , KARGIL , J&K
This isolated valley is situated to the south West of Leh, and is inaccessible for around seven months in the year, ie. In the peak winter months. This is so because all the passes are closed and the river freezes. So to get past, you have to basically walk on the frozen river, which is known as the Chadar Trek.
So the next time you are travelling to this beautiful heaven on Earth named Himalayas, do visit these lesser-known, but worthwhile places!
