The Most Popular Himalayan Treks for Women


By Shanu Pande

Women are the best creations of God. They are gentle yet strong, flexible yet steely, emotional yet calm. Today women are independent, free-spirited, and love to enjoy life from close quarters. There is hardly any domain untouched by women and trekking is one of them.

Many solo females are trekking to the remotest terrains of India. All this seems incredible in an outdoor activity that is challenging and certainly not for the chicken-hearted.
