Before the dawn of civilization, hiking through the hills and woods to hunt and forage was a necessity for survival. But now, it has evolved into a healthy sport to rejuvenate the body and mind from the daily grind of city life.
The chirping of birds, the first sight of the Sun’s golden hues filtering through a misty haze, the virgin dew drops on a soft carpet of grass across the meadow and, a clear starlit sky at night—strange they seem more of a fantasy or a straight read out of a Victorian era classic in these days of rising pollution and global warming.
Fortunately though, Mother Nature has kept its heart open for those willing and daring enough to explore nature in its pristine best.
HMRA has an expert team of trekking instructors who have weathered both the mighty heights and the weather in the Himalayas
For beginners, we have some moderate treks near our base, the HMRA Campsite, in Kullu, Himachal Pradesh
The 12-km moderate trek through a very green Parvati valley starts from Barshaini (43 kms from HMRA campsite). The destination is an amazingly beautiful meadow with a hot water spring surrounded by the lofty peaks of the Parvati valley. Kheerganga is a transit point for trekkers attempting the Pin Parvati Pass trek.
Nestled under the shadows of the Shensar, Shangarh and Shaktimaror peaks in Sainj valley in Himachal Pradesh, Shangarh, at 6,300 feet above sea level, tells a tale of an enormously beautiful and vast meadow near the Great Himalayan National Park where time stands still even now. A moderate hike of 4-5 hours will take the adventurous to the verdant plains at the corner of which is perched an ancient temple, and the surrounding village of Shangarh. Both the village and the meadow derive their names from the adjoining Shangarh peak.
This is a moderate 14-km trek to the origin of the Beas river at 11,800 feet under the towering presence of the Hanuman Tibba peak. The trekkers also get a clear view of the Dhauladhar and Pir Panjal ranges.
Bhrigu Lake is nestled at 14,110 feet. The last climb of the trek is a bit tough, but the 360 degree view of the Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar ranges, the Lahaul triangle between the Chandra and Bhaga rivers and the distant mountains in Spiti soon drains the body of all exhaustion. The mind never feels so fresh after such an energy-sapping exercise.
It is an easy 4-km trek to a beautiful meadow near HMRA Campsite where the temple of Bijli Mahadev is located. According to local legend, lighting disintegrates the Shivling in the temple every year. The priests then anoint the broken pieces with butter and perform a puja (ceremony) and the Shivling becomes one piece again.
