Overview

This October, Foliage Outdoors plans to take you to one of most scenic and picturesque treks of Indian Himalayas. Do-able by beginners and enjoyed by beginners and avid trekkers alike, this Trek done with your friends or family will give you memories of a lifetime.

The trek that starts at Lohajung takes you through dense forests of Oak and Rhododendrons to the Himalayan Meadows called locally as "Bugyals". Ali and Bedni Bugyal will offer you surreal views of the Peaks. Views of Chowkhamba and Trishul Peaks would be your companion over the trek route.

The altitude that we reach is only around 12000 feet which makes it a trek where we have less worries of high-altitude sickness (as compared to the ones where we trek to much higher altitudes) resulting in a stress-free trekking experience.

Join us for the trek that promises majestic sights of towering mountains in the backdrop of picture-perfect Campsites. Captivating views of magical sunrises and sunsets await you. When do we hear from you? :-)
