The Himalayas are a major attraction for the young and the old alike. For centuries Indian saints have wandered in the Himalayas and crossed difficult terrains in search of places of pilgrimage like Kailash, Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri, Yamunotri and Amarnath. There is a belief among Hindus that Gods live in the Himalayas. For trekking in the Himalayas Garhwal region, Dehraduna and Rishikesh are the ideal gateways. From Leh one can start trekking to Ladakh. The suitable season for trekking in the north – east region starts from end – September to May.
