Home to some of the most sacred sites in the Indian Himalaya including the headwaters of the the Ganges (Ganga) River and the 7,816 m peak of Nada Devi, Uttarakhand formerly known as Uttaranchal is another place where it is fairly easy to trek on your own.

Having spent nearly four years in the Himalayas, much of it independently trekking throughout the region, I thought I would help others by sharing how to trek independently and economically in the Himalayas. Its not necessary to spend $30 to $70 a day through a travel agency in order to enjoy the splendor of these mountains as many people seem to think. All it takes is a bit of self confidence and knowledge.
