Himalayas’ Top 7 Winter Treks

by Nathan Zachary

Ali Bedni Bugyal

Difficulty: Easy-Moderate

Ali Bedni Bugyal is a hike that is tough to duplicate. Because it has something to surprise hikers in every season. Summertime brings magnificent colours to the meadows. In the winter, it’s the gorgeous snow-covered woodlands and their clearings. Not to mention the close-up views of two of the most popular trekking mountains, Mt Trishul and Mt Nanda Ghunti.

Protip This is an extremely rare trek that only a few people try. If you want a relaxing alone experience, close your eyes and choose this

Dayara Bugyal Winter Trek

Difficulty: Easy-Moderate

This is a walk I enjoy since it is both a pleasant climb and one that rewards you handsomely. On such a short hike, you never expect such views and experiences! It’s even more beautiful in the winter, with the fields draped in glittering white snow.

Protip This trip is especially suitable for families and beginners in the winter due to the simplicity of the ascent. If you’re an experienced hiker, don’t let it deter you; you can complete this walk 10 times and not get tired. I’d also recommend it to people who have seen it before in another season. In the winter, the hike is quite different.

Brahmatal Winter Trek

Difficulty: Easy-Moderate

Sandhya, one of our co-founders, has a favorite trek. When she traveled the previous year. She was standing at the summit, with a breathtaking view of two of the world’s most famous mountains, Mt Trishul and Mt Nanda Ghunti. In front of her, she had a bird’s-eye view of the entire Roopkund trail. To get a sense of what she’s like, read this personal note she penned after her Brahmatal trek. Protip Choose this option if you want a spectacular snow experience. The majority of trekkers remark on how beautiful the snow is. Be physically prepared as well, as there are some difficult climbs.

Deoriatal – Chandrashila Winter Trek

Difficulty: Easy-Moderate 

Last winter, we were missing this walk. The popularity dropped after the Forest Service closed some significant campgrounds. New camping possibilities, though, have emerged. So we’re back on track with our grand adventure.

The trail, with its bright trees, lake, and ascent to the Tungnath temple and Chandrashila top, is still attractive.

Protip For the amount of effort you put in, this walk provides a very unjust payoff. You can see practically all of the most beautiful peaks in the Indian Himalayas, including India’s highest peak, Mt Nanda Devi. You also get to see snow in the winter. If the dates suit you, don’t hesitate to sign up.

Kedarkantha Winter Trek

Difficulty: Easy-Moderate 

Is it necessary for me to introduce this journey? When we first opened it up in the winter of 2011, it became an instant hit. It features charming campsites, a dramatic summit ascent, and one of the best Himalayan winter experiences. Most trekkers consider it a bucket list adventure, and they have every right to do so because it isn’t something you do every day. Protip We are starting our walk from Kotgaon rather than Sankri. This new trail is remote and avoids crowds. It’s also a lot nicer than the old way, in my opinion.

Sandakphu – Phalut

Difficulty: Moderate

If you want a significant cultural experience, this is the trek for you. You get a glimpse of the Nepalese trekking culture. It’s a journey along the Indian-Nepal border that frequently weaves in and out of the two countries (it feels quite international!).

It also offers views of Mt Everest, Mt Lhotse, Mt Makalu, and Mt Kanchenjunga, four of the world’s highest peaks. There is no other trek that can match it.

Protip Few trekkers are aware that on this journey, you will spend some time in tea houses and will also participate in the Indiahikes camping experience for two days. It’s an excellent method to get the best of both worlds. This walk does get snow, but not as much as our Uttarakhand or Himachal hikes. So bear this in mind.

Kuari Pass Winter Trek

Difficulty: Easy-Moderate

Kuari pass trek is a must-do in any season for vistas of Mt Nanda Devi (25,673 feet) and Mt Dronagiri (23,182 feet), two of India’s most famous mountains.

Protip: There is an added interest in the winter. It’s almost perfectly constructed woodlands are blanketed in snow. Snowflakes falling from the Oak leaves over a white carpeted woodland floor transport you to a paradise that would make Santa Claus jealous. All of this adds up to an unrivaled Himalayan winter hiking experience!
