Tour Details

Some journeys into the higher Himalayas are undertaken as a challenge while others are manifestations of the human nature to bask amidst raw natural energy of the mountains. The unknown yet beautiful trek to the base camp of Mount Kalanag promises to be a perfect blend of adventure and relaxation. While the close proximity to the snow clad peaks of Kalanag, Bandarpoonch and Swargarohini pumps the adrenaline, the soothing effect of high Himalayan villages nestled in sylvan river valleys and hidden lakes is unmistakable. A must do trek for people looking to explore offbeat trekking routes!
