Hiking will be on relatively soft terrain in Easy treks

As per fitness required for easy treks, you must be having an active daily routine. Meaning, you should be comfortable walking 3 Km in 30 minutes with a load of 5/6 rucksack.

For your first Himalayan trek, these are the most suitable option. You will get choice of treks in Darjeeling/Sikkim, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Kashmir/Ladakh. Many of these treks are equally charming even if you have done prior treks in the Himalayas.

Most of these treks require you to camp, i.e. to stay in tents. Few treks are Tea House or Homestay style treks where you will stay in small lodge/homestay accommodations.

We recommend some of these as family friendly treks, where you can take your kids as well.

Choosing right season for the trek is equally important. There is a trek for every season, be it spring/summer, fall/autumn, winter or even in monsoon.

Below is the list of Easy grade treks in Himalayas. Do check the upcoming treks schedule for which are already scheduled.
