Treks to make September come to pass

har ki dun trek


September is certainly one of the best times to experience the Himalayan essence. The monsoons are almost over and everything you can look at is lush, green countryside with nebulous scents. It is during this time that snow is melted almost entirely, even on the high peaks, and from the base to the top you can see the entire mountain. During the day, the flourishing clouds sometimes flow down so low that you get to see what is beyond those clouds. And you can look outside your tentes on clear nights and be surprised at all of the glittering stars that are shining to provide you with this galactic experience!


Now that the weather is pleasant and refreshing in September, it isn’t the best time to hike in the Himalayas. I couldn’t really find any specific reason for this when I came to think about it. So I decided to discuss this with many fellow trekkers and mountain enthusiasts. I came to the conclusion that nobody really had any real cause why they did not walk in the Himalayas during September after chatting with a bunch of people. The most common thread I could collect was that the trails are wet, slippery and landslides can occur. All that stuff is true now. Walking on slippery paths can be somewhat dangerous, but that doesn’t mean it gets more adventurous and fun as well. Surely you will experience some tormented falls as you climb down, but you will shrug off the bum from your back and continue hiking to your destination in the true spirit of adventure. And that’s all about trekking, okay?! Trust your instincts, and plan a trek in the powerful Himalayas in autumn.


  1. Har Ki Dun Trek

Har Ki Dun Trek, one of my absolute favorites, is one of the oldest trekking paths in India. The valley is located at Garhwal high altitude and is part of the Pant Govind National Park. Sankri is the base camp for the trip and usually takes about four days to walk back and forth into the valley. The most appealing characteristic of the valley is its untouched dense woods, and the campsite, where nature lovers, bird watchers, and shutterbugs can experience a happy experience. For both experienced people and beginners, an after-monsoon tour through the Har Ki Dun Valley is recommendable.


  1. Indrahar Pass Trek

Indrahar Pass is located in the Dhauladhar Ranges, in the Himachal Pradesh at an altitude of over 14,000 ft. The high altitude makes it difficult to climb up to the top and cover the pass from October to April with snow. And it is also not the best place for walking on the top of peak moonsoons as heavy rainfall occurs, so trekkers can only walk here for a few months (including September). The trek leads through some of Dhauladhar’s most beautiful landscapes, which are covered by dense cedar and rhododendron forests. You can even walk during the trek to a glacier called Laka Got.


  1. Beas Kund Trek


Beas Kund, a small alpine lake, is the Beas River spring that runs through all of the Himachal-Pradesh Kullu valley. During the autumn, the weather in Manali is perfectly clear and peaks like the Friendship Peak, the Ladakhi Peak and the habuman Tibba are one of the most popular treks to do. The trail has a heap of blocks, which gives you a fantastic place to take pictures. You will camp in one of the most scenic campsites on the whole Himalayas during the hike, and this is one of the reasons why this is a hike in the area which is extremely popular.


  1. Markha Valley Trek


Markha River is located at the crossing of Langtang Chu and Nimaling Chu and it was an influx of Zanskar River in Ladakh. The stony land through which the river runs is called the Markha Valley. During the trek, you walk through some of Himalayan’s most remote mountain villages. As the trail passes through Hemis National Park you can see some animal species, such as the snow leopard, rarely seen. You also have a wonderful view of the Kang Yatse, one of the highest peaks in the region throughout the trek. As a challenging trek, it is recommended that you prepare for this trip for a few weeks.
