Like a lot of life’s best experiences, you don’t realize what you’re missing out on unless you’ve trekked once. And then, it’s almost like tasting blood (quite literally sometimes, when the going gets tough!), you’ll only want more! The world—with its high mountains, rugged terrains, uncombed forests and gushing water bodies—becomes your playground, and you want to explore every inch of it, scale greater heights! As we begin the process of initiating you into the world of excursions, here are some of the trails you could consider when planning on an adventure holiday.
(Dzukou Valley, Nagaland)
This is not just one trek but a destination. Nagaland, one of the eastern most states in India, borders Burma and is home to 16 different major tribes which are further divided into sub tribes. Each tribe is unique in its character, culture, food and customs making this a cradle of color and festivities Head out to Dzukou Valley, a valley covered with bamboo stalks, to camp for the night and catch a stunning sunset nad wake up early to witness ice crystals frozen on bamboo leaves. If you crave even more adventure, then you can attempt to climb Mt. Japfu, the highest peak overlooking Kohima at 3048m. A rugged steep climb through rainforest and a little bit of rock climbing just before the summit will test your endurance and quench your thirst for adventure.
Duration: 5-6 days
