Did you know that almost every month of 2021 has been blessed with one or more long weekends?
Starting from Maha Shivaratri in March and ending with Christmas in December, this article contains a delightful list of every long weekend 2021 is treating us with. We have also added suggestions of some exciting treks you can attempt during those long weekends below.
All you need to do is pack your backpacks, put on your trekking shoes, and head for the trails you have on your bucket list.
We present to you a long weekend calendar for 2021 below, making it easy for you to escape to the mountains as and when you choose.
The month of March is a fair time to travel and bid adieu to the winters. In March, the earth is happy, and the temperatures are moderate. The following are some treks you can attempt in the month of March.
April is an excellent time to witness the mountains embrace summer with a stunning array of colorful blooms. Luckily enough, this month has also ensured all the festivals fall on the weekdays instead of the weekends.
So what are we waiting for? Get packed and leave right away with your loved ones as these destinations are sure to make your vacation an extraordinary experience.
Looking to escape the scorching heat during May? The mountains are covered in lush green meadows set to mesmerize and calm your mind and soul. It is the perfect season to step up your game with one of our challenging treks. To find out which of these treks would be the right mix of challenge and fun for your experience level, please refer to our Rating table.
July, much to our disappointment offers only one long weekend. This is a grave injustice to the variety of treks and expeditions best suited for this month. If it is possible to arrange with your workplace to take a couple of extra days off, you can consider doing one of the longer treks suggested below.
If not, the Bhrigu Lake Trek would be a good match for this weekend.
In this month, the long weekends have, as a special treat, managed to arrange themselves back to back. Taking the extra week off in between would be perfect for exploring some of the choicest treks from our portfolio like the Kashmir Great Lakes and Tarsar Marsar while leaving you with ample time to tour Jammu and Kashmir.
As the monsoon takes away with it the summer haze, leaving behind beautiful shades of the sky and crystal clear views of the mountains spread as far as the horizon can stretch, September is a beautiful time to attempt some of our tougher expeditions mentioned below. To find out if you are eligible for these expeditions, please refer to our Rating Scale.
Much like April, October has plenty of festivals falling on the weekdays, thanks to Navratri. Surrender yourself to the landscapes of the Himalayas this month. Put your fitness levels to test, push yourself out of your comfort zone and choose the right graded trek from our sprawling range of treks and expeditions in our portfolio.
As winter begins, the trails start to turn snowy again. Did you know attempting winter versions of summer treks is one of the best ways to challenge yourself? The weather is harsher, the terrain is trickier to navigate and the trails are the least crowded! If you can afford to take a couple of days off, make sure you try out one of the treks mentioned below in the winters. The challenges are unlike any other.
To find out if you have the adequate experience level for these treks, please refer to our Rating Scale.
Trekking in fresh snowfall, through the icy mist, under the sparkling sun, and along frozen lakes can be an enthralling experience. Besides, what is Christmas without snow in sight? And the cherry on top, isn't it the best way to celebrate New Year’s Eve in the Himalayas and bid farewell to 2021?
Please note that the treks and expeditions suggested above form only a small portion of what is available in our portfolio.
