  • Trip introduction

    Trek past snow-laden mountain trails, catch breathtaking views from vantage points, stay in alpine tents at a beautiful campsite and explore the mountains of Uttarakhand. This winter trek to Devban gives you the classic winter trekking experience of the Himalayas over a relatively easy route on a short two-day itinerary. You'll be navigating remote pathways with inches of snow, climbing uphill to over 9,000 feet to get stunning Himalayan views and sleep in tents pitched under a starry night sky. All throughout, you'll explore some of the most secluded mountains of Uttarakhand.

    NOTE: A minimum of 4 travellers are required to book this trek to Devban. Non-Indian citizens cannot book this trek as per government regulations.

    Destination

    Devban, a little-known village tucked away in a secluded corner of Uttarakhand, is not the most popular choice for trekkers. This allows you to explore the real beauty of the lower Himalayan mountains, the Kanasar range, at a slower pace and an authentic experience. Far away from the crowds at Dehradun, the oak and pine forests and thorny shrubs of the Undawa forests near Devban are the highlight of this trek. These forests, painted pure white with snow as far as the eye can see, attract chirping alpine birds and harmless mountain wildlife.

    Destination highlights

    • Embark on an easy, two-day trek to Devban.
    • Climb up to an altitude of more than 9,000 feet.
    • Catch beautiful views of snow-capped peaks in the Himalayas.
    • Stay in tents pitched at a photogenic campsite.
