All adventurists who wish to taste the real thrill of the mountains must opt for a trekking expedition in the Indian Himalayas. Listed below are some amazing Himalayan treks that are tailor-made for thrill seekers.

Kalindikhal Trek
Owing to the presence of holy shrines, Garhwal is better known as the ‘Dev Bhumi’. Various adventurous treks of Garhwal are commenced from holy destinations, and so does the Kalindikhal Trek. The expedition starts from the Gangotri Valley and reaches a maximum altitude of 5968 meters.

During the journey, travelers are greeted with mesmerizing natural sights offered by Tapovan – a base camp of various peaks like Shivling, Kedardome and Bhagirathi group, Vasuki Tal, Kalindikhal Pass, Arwa Tal and Mana Village. Further, the last destination of this expedition is the Badrinath Valley (an abode of Lord Vishnu). After reaching the final stop, adventurists can pay homage at the main Badrinath Temple.

Further, the fast-flowing rivers and murmuring waterfalls are some other wonders of Mother Nature that lure the adventurists. After enjoying these wonders of nature, travelers reach Kedarnath and bow their heads before Lord Shiva.
