Breathtaking Treks In India That Are Even More Beautiful At Night

Tripoto

"If the stars only came out once every thousand years, no one would sleep that night, of course. The world would become religious overnight. We would be ecstatic and delirious. Instead the stars come out every night, and we watch television." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Look at the stars, every night and on some nights when the racing heart is ready to bounce out of the window, buckle up your shoes, light the light and head forth to explore. The world reveals its most beautiful secrets in the silence of the night.

Here are some of the night treks for you to dream with open eyes on the most beautiful hilltops in India.
