Exploring 5 best monsoon treks in Uttarakhand

The first monsoon showers refresh the greenery of nature providing relief from the intense heat. The state of Uttarakhand is surrounded by the magnificent Himalayas, making it a year-round trekking destination. During monsoon season, bright days are quickly overtaken by monsoon rains in the mountains’ higher altitudes. However, it’s also a fantastic time to go on a trek through beautiful valleys, cascading waterfalls and flower-filled mountain slopes.

Here are 5 best monsoon treks in Uttarakhand
