Everybody loves the thrill of escaping to the mountains to gain some respite from the discomfort caused by the summer and humidity of Goa.
Eco Treks Goa, a trekking and adventure sports club, has announced its 15th and 16th treks to the Himalayas in May 2023.
This year participants will enjoy the immaculate Himalayan wilderness and have a memorable and terrific trekking experience on the Deo Tibba Base, a circuit trek via the Gourudugh and Hamta region in the Pir Panjal Range around Manali.
The Deo Tibba Base trek is a very scenic, summer high-altitude trek. Starting from the Prini road head, the trek winds through lush green valleys, hanging glaciers, log bridges, high-altitude meadows and dazzling landscapes.
To keep you company, are the peaks of the region – Deo-Tibba, Inderkilla and Hanuman Tibba. For the shutterbugs, the trek provides an ideal opportunity to go berserk.
Leaving the Manali Valley, the trek proceeds through evergreen cool forests of walnut, oak and the occasional alder. The view of the entire Kullu Valley that is glimpsed all along the trail is excellent.
Once atop the Deo Tibba Base (3800 m), another spectacular panorama of peaks appears. The valley view from Kharimindiyari and Zameer is a photographer’s delight. You also see some good waterfalls and a number of lakes (mountain tarn) on this trek.
With a total of 149 treks so far and with the support of 2109 active members, Eco Treks Goa, which was founded by a like-minded group of youngsters 14 years back, has already taken 484 participants to the Himalayas.
