Indian Mountains

The Himalayas, include eight of the world's fourteen highest mountain peaks extending in a magnificent sweep of 2400 km along the northern boundary of India, from Kashmir in the west to Darjeeling in the east. No trekking or mountaineering experience can match the excitement of a spell in the Himalayas. The season for trekking is rather short due to climatic conditions, difficult passes which remain covered with snow during most of the year. June to mid-September are the months when trekking is possible in most of the trekking regions in India.
