Treks of Kumaon
Most of the trails in Kumaon
are relatively easy, with gradual ascents and descents over rolling hills and
through meadows (Bugials or Kharag). These trails offer breathtaking views of
the high peaks such as Nanda Devi, Nanda Kot, Trisuli and Hardeol. Eastern
Kumaon has recently been opened to foreign trekkers and the trails are dominated
by the Panchchuli group of peaks.

wildlife tourism. These

destination for trekkers. Remained underdeveloped for a long time the area is
still in its primitive form and has vast areas of pure wilderness, holding
different cultures offering a chance to have a close encounter with outstanding
views of greater Himalayan range.
