197 Terrific Local Treks To Do During COVID-19 — Recommended By Trekkers

Today, I have something very special for you. 

I have 197 terrific local treks for you that you can do during the Coronavirus pandemic. These come strongly recommended by our trekkers. These are treks you can easily do on your own.

How did it come about?

Last week we had asked our community of trekkers to recommend local treks around their city. 

What did they do? 

They flooded us with recommendations and terrific ones at that — many that we had not heard of before! The whole exercise reinforced our belief that our community of trekkers is very vibrant. And also that India is full of trekking trails — no matter which city you are in, there’s a trekking trail that you can trek on your own.

Our team worked extra hard to collate these recommendations to make a superb guide for you — all in 4 days time! 

So here’s presenting to you,

The Indiahikes Local Trek Guide, with a collection of a whopping 197 trek recommendations from all over the country.

It has all the quick info you need to do the trek — the region, duration, difficulty, the starting point of the trek (with the correct Google Maps location) and the trail type.  

Also, for 47 of these treks, we have detailed Do-It-Yourself Guides available on our website as well. You’ll find links to the guides on the same page.

It’s as easy to use as a normal Excel sheet. It has treks arranged state wise. Every row has information about one trek. Make sure you scroll about to see all the information.

Our vision is to make such detailed Do-It-Yourself Guides for all of these 197 treks in the near future. 

We really want your help with that. If you are going on any of these treks, just drop us an email before you go on [email protected] We’ll show you how to document the trek. It will not only make your trek more fun, but it will give the trekking world a guide that will be treasured for long. Your name will be permanently recognised as the person behind the trek documentation. 

Finally, we want to say a BIG thank you to all of you who gave us these recommendations. You have just taken trekking forward. Trekkers in future will thank you for letting them know of these wondrous treks — a place where for a brief moment they can reconnect with their mind, body and spirit. 

If you have more trek recommendations, drop in a comment on this page. We’ll add it into our guide. 

Of course, let us know your thoughts on the Indiahikes Local Trek Recommendation Guide. We want to add more layers to it, so any advice from you would be very helpful. Drop them in the comments box at the end of the guide. 

Happy trekking in these Covid times! We hope these treks help you to find yourself for at least a day.

  1. Thank you swathi and Indiahikes for this creative initiative to open new local treks. This also helps many people including local vendors near these trekking spots along with our trekkers. In this current situations. There are some limited treks available with limited resources. This initiative will be very helpful for our trekking community. This is also great example for ‘Vocal for local’.
    Glad to be part of Indiahikes Indiahikes community.

  2. A very hard and challenging work to guide the people in the ‘lock-up ‘ for the last 4 months . I was wondering as to why God has not given us, the homosapiens, a clue to use the lower 2 limbs,provided only for walking 9and no other use)during this imprisoned period.And lo!,the IH has come to our rescue,to be on our own than waiting for the trekking agencies to come to our rescue.
    As expected, Maharashtra and Karnataka (obviously because of the IH)have taken the lead in suggesting treks of all hues.
    Unfortunately for us North Indians ,there not much in the kitty ,with blank on Punjab,haryana and Chandigarh and HP hills.
    I am afraid the treks suggested in Delhi’s Bio-diversity parks/sanctuaries are meant for morn walkers and are always overcrowded.The places are meant for family picnic and for the small kids.
    The Aravalli Bio Diversity park and the sanjay Van in the SW Delhi’s vasant Kunj (near JNU) are better options(with trails marked and unexplored area down the valley).May be the bored people could venture into Heritage Walks or eco treks in the Rajouri jungles.Even the IMF has not cared to explore them for -night solo camping for the kids as well as rock climbing(soap rocks).
