We had first read about glaciers in our geography classes in school. Talking about things like glaciers do generate a lot of interest among most of us. There are many reasons for this, but the primary reason is that most of these glaciers are situated in extremely remote locations and have difficult terrains. Many are very sceptical about the thought of even travelling to those places.
But in the recent years, glacier treks have become quite popular. These are the best treks for people for love challenges and coming across new experiences. It is not just only seasoned trekkers or mountaineers can be part of such treks. Normal people can also very easily do these treks.
India does have a lot of such glacier treks but there is one such trek which has got us totally excited.
