Special permissions and passes are required to venture into Rajabhatkawa, which is the entry point for the core area of the Buxa Tiger Reserve. Forest fires in the core area, Bodo militants from Assam and poisonous weed adds to the danger of entering the core area of this reserve without proper permissions and guides.

The Chadar Trek takes you across the frozen Zanskar River, which is the only link between the people of Zanskar and the outside world when the passes are shut at freezing temperatures of close to -30 degrees. The sub-zero temperature, high altitude, frozen river and long walks on thin ice makes the trek one of the most challenging treks out there.

Day 3. Gurudongmar Lake - Highest Lake In Asia

HolidayIQ Traveller Anupam Debnath says, “Prior permissions are required to visit Gurudongmar. The oxygen levels are very low and every step to the lake leaves you breathless. Also, it is not recommended to stay there for long as the lack of oxygen can cause sickness.”

Day 4. Kishtwar Kailash Road - Scariest Road In The World

The road between Kishtwar and the base camp of Kishtwar Kailash is one of the scariest roads in the world. Located in the Kishtwar District of Jammu & Kashmir, the road in some places is only wide enough for one vehicle, and in many places bordered on one side by cliffs and on the other side by a drop of hundreds of meters into the valley unprotected by guard rails.

Riding up the mountains of death and conquering 70 hairpin bends along the narrow winding road to the Kolli Hills is challenging and exciting enough. But what makes it spookier is the folklore about a maiden who lures travellers with her beauty and kills them! HolidayIQ Traveller Neelu Khader says, “About 1000 - 1200 meters in height, one has to negotiate an astonishing 70 hairpin bends with a few excellent view points to reach the hills.” HolidayIQ Traveller Santhosh adds, “Drive cautiously on the hairpin bends as the roads are narrow and trucks/buses may appear out of nowhere.”

Day 6. Pin Parvati Trek

The trek over Pin Parvati Pass is one of the most challenging and adventurous trek that requires lot of physical stamina and mental strength. Ascent to more than 4800 metres, difficult gradient, a steep incline, rough terrain, snow and glaciers and ill-defined trails, are some of the challenge that trekkers confront. 

Day 7. Rohtang Pass

Rohtang, a name that stems from the deadly mudslides that often cover the 4,000 m-high road in the Himalayas. Rohtang’s unpredictable weather, snowstorms and avalanches add to the danger factor.

Day 8. Stok Kangri Trek

The Stok Kangri is the most glamorous trek in India - the trek takes you to India's highest trekking summit at 6100 mt. High altitude, steep ascent, oxygen deficiency, dry terrain, and crossing glaciers and rivers with a current that can whisk you away, makes it one of India's toughest treks
