An Off Beat Trek Route to Sandakphu for Real Nature Lovers

Off lately trekking in India has gained immense popularity as everyone wants to be close to nature and feel real bliss. Especially with the work-from-home culture, working from the mountains has also become a thing. The city people loving the mountains so much have also raised an issue of spoiling or damaging nature’s beauty. In the last few months, the regular trekking route to the Sandakphu trek or the sleeping Buddha trek has become quite dirty and crowded which is why the beauty of the route is somehow lost. To avoid the crowd and to provide the virgin trails to the trekkers, Ashmita Trek and Tours have exclusively launched an offbeat trek route to Sandakphu. This trek is solely accessible by the Ashmita trek and tours team and hence is not too crowded and also provides a fresh walking path and virgin nature feel to the trekkers.
