“It’s always further than it looks. It’s always taller than it looks. And it’s always harder than it looks.”

And it is also always more rewarding than you can imagine.

India is the home to Himalayas, and there are many non-technical peaks that you can climb to conquer your fears.

1. Kedarkanth

A great snow trek for first-timers, Kedarkantha is a peak in the Garhwal Himalayas which many beginner treks attempt and summit every season. It is best experienced during winters, given its popularization as a snow trek.

4. Mt Kanamo

When your starting point is the highest village in the world, then acclimatization is the key. Make sure that your stay in Kibber is sufficient before setting out on the trek. The climb may not be very steep, but because of high altitude and no vegetation in area, it can be tough.
