About Phulara Ridge Trek

Phulara Ridge Trek is one of the very few ridge treks in India. The trek commences from the base of Sankri which is a location near western Uttarakhand.

You start climbing the mountains where you witness the marveling view of the ranges and the scenic beauty mesmerizes you. The high mountain tops act as a barrier and protect you from all the worries you may have brought with you.

Next, we have the majestic forests of the region. So green that even the emerald will be envious. Tall trees provide shelter to the tired souls which wander in the lush green forests.

Bird watching is another thing which you would be accustomed to once you return from this trek. Sighting birds is a very common activity undertaken by the trekkers who visit this area.

When you witness the alpine meadows, you lose all your sense. Till miles, all you can see is folds of green bushes carpeting the Earth.

This trek is one which will leave an everlasting impact on your heart and eyes due to the trek’s, out-of-the-world panoramic beauty.
