5 Best and Must Visit Trekking Places in India You Should Try

Trekking during the monsoons may not be a very wise decision for many but for those who are mad about adventure; the rains are the best time to enjoy the thrill a trek promises.

A country like India offers some amazing trek places every season in every corner be it south, east, north or west. It is exciting not to plan a holiday and get going wherever you want to, but monsoon trekking needs a little extra effort and care.

The monsoons are the best time to go trek and the country offers a long list of beautiful and pristine places to explore. Every season has its own charm and the monsoon is undoubtedly romantic as well as dangerous.

So, taking the necessary precautions while stepping out will make your journey and adventure much more comfortable. Be wise and do have a checklist before marching out to your preferred destination.

For instance, it would be advisable to check on the status of the weather for wherever you want to travel, on the kind of transportation available there and also all your trekking equipment like ropes, comfy bags, sleeping bags, tents, raincoats, knives, torches, batteries, water containers, and first aid kit.

Wearing the right shoes and clothes can help you walk on the slippery plains and rocks and also help avoid leeches and the rain. Trekking in a group and with a guide will be more convenient rather than trekking alone during this season.

During this time of the year, traveling is much more reasonable and lighter on the pocket. The risk and fun side of the monsoon season are what makes it different. Listed here are some of the best and must-visit trekking places in India during the monsoon season.
