HolidayIQ reviewer Nikhil George shares, "Yes it is worth trekking the Rohtang Pass! First of all the place is less risky, so I suggest it for beginners. You will get the best panorama of Himalayan Plains."

The incredible landscape of the surrounding region includes the emerging Beas River on the south of the pass. In addition, on the northern side the Chandra River, is a source stream of the Chenab River.

HolidayIQ reviewer Brian shares his experience, "This was my first paragliding experience ever and since I got to know that this is the 2nd highest paragliding site in the world, the experience became even more exhilarating. The flying route is from Billing to Bir, covering roughly 16 km road distance. You take off from Billing and fly across the hills, get a sneak peak at the Dhauladhar and Himalayan ranges and get a wonderful view of the lush green fields in the region."

3. Trek up to the vibrant Hebbe Falls, Chikmagalur

"The jeep journey was really thrilling. We stopped 2 km ahead of falls and we reached it by trekking. One should be careful as the rocks are slippery," says HolidayIQ reviewer Gokul about his journey to the Hebbe Falls. HolidayIQ reviewer Sunil shares his adventure, "For me, walking to the falls was the best part, with trees all around and wading through numerous clear water streams with pebble beds before reaching the falls. Will suggest you wear slippers instead of shoes. You will be mesmerised by the sight of the roaring falls."
