The entire trail is packed with wooden bridges, gurgling rivulets and dense pine forests. This makes for a perfect path to follow.

Legend says that the lake never fully freezes over (even in the harshest winters) because of a praying sage’s blessings. Glittery green virgin forests and scenic views of a plethora of mountains and peaks make this trek practically unforgettable. Characterised as a high altitude alpine meadow, the Bhrigu Lake trek organized by the Hosteller also lets you experience the Beas Kund valley, hot sulfur springs of Vashist and the vast grazing grounds of Rola Khuli.

4. TRIUND 


 

The Triund trek is one of most popular lower Himalaya trails. Every year, hundreds of tourists (local and foreign alike) throng to experience this. Falling in the mighty Dhauladhar ranges, this trek starts from the pretty town of Mcleodganj. Mcleodganj is particularly well known for being Dalai Lama’s home away from home. The Triund trek is a comparatively smaller trekking route, spanning only a maximum time of 4 hours. The last 1 kilometer of the trek is the only moderately difficult area, known as the 22 curve points. Which is pretty much self-explanatory. But the Hosteller collaborates with expert guides who have been traversing these mountains ranges since years. They are more than capable of ensuring that you have a safe yet very thrilling trek.

 5. KARERI LAKE 


 

Located 9 km away from the town of Kangra in Himachal Pradesh, the Kareri Lake trek is one of the most highly rated offbeat locations for enthusiastic travellers. One of the best things about this lake is probably the high reflectivity of the icy blue waters. This makes for the most spectacular photo ops. The lake serves sometimes as a base for more explorative trails into the Dhauladhar range. Notably the Chamba and Bharmour. It is essentially a natural shallow lake and there are 2 temples overlooking it. The serene nature of the destination and the mind-blowing views of the entire trail, make Kareri Lake one of the Hosteller’s most offbeat and unique trekking locations. One should definitely add Kareri lake trek on their travel bucket list.
