The Himalayas offer endless opportunity to those who love the outdoors and the adventurous life.
For trekking, you can take your pick from the cold deserts of Ladakh, Zanskar, Lahaul and Spiti, the green pastures of Uttaranchal and the Kumaon Hills or the higher regions of Himalayas. White water rafting is thrilling in the upper Himalayas which are home to many untamed rivers including the incomparable Ganges that is born here. The majestic ‘abode of snow’ is also a skier’s paradise. Gulmarg and Sonamarg in Jammu and Kashmir are hot skiing spots.
Other options include camping in the mountains, canoeing and kayaking, mountain biking, heli skiing, para gliding, hang gliding and jeep and jungle safari.
