It has become an important outdoor activity for ordinary beings-school children, college-goers, couples, and families. It means travelling long distance by foot in remote villages and meeting cheerful, friendly and hospitable hill people, crossing over high passes with breathtaking views to enter beautiful, deep, serene and secluded valleys. It means spending the night in sleepy little village, roadside dhabas or camping out in the splendid alpine meadows.
