Uttarakhand treks re-start post monsoon!

Trekking stops in Uttarakhand during the monsoon season because this region receives heavy rainfall, making the trails slippery, slushy and risky. But now, after a pause of almost three months, treks are re-starting in Uttarakhand.

Today, the first team of Dayara Bugyal for the season started trekking from Raithal. And the first team for Deoriatal-Chandrashila is presently travelling from Dehradun to Sari. And the first team for Kuari Pass is travelling from Rishikesh to the base camp in Karchhi. They will start their trek tomorrow morning.

Immediately post monsoon, these trails—Dayara Bugyal, Deoriatal-Chandrashila and Kuari Pass—are lush green. Our recce team, which went on the Deoriatal-Chandrashila trek a few days ago, even found a few leeches in the forest near the Akashkamini river. That’s something novel that trekkers usually don’t find on treks in Uttarakhand.

As the trekking season in Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir concludes, Uttarakhand is stirring up to begin the vibrant trekking season of autumn.

We’ll post more updates about these upcoming treks right here.
