India is full of Unique treks that are enough to blow your mind and excite you with their beauty. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari, you will find different treks famous for some reasons. These treks in India are attached to their religious beliefs and sentiments, whether Amarnath Trek, Kedarnath Trek, Hemkund Sahib Trek and many more. If you are alone, nature, the mountain and the waterfall will accommodate you. You will feel like something pleasant is with you. Moreover, if you are trekking with your loved ones, it is like a cherry on the ice cream.
