Great Himalayan National Park
Great Himalayan National Park information
The 754-sq-km Great Himalayan National Park, which gained World Heritage status in 2014, stretches up to the 6000m-plus peaks of the Great Himalaya Range, with a variety of wildlife. Lush forests lower down give way to alpine meadows and high-altitude glaciers.
There are plenty of hiking and trekking opportunities here, from easy day walks in the buffer zone (called the Ecozone) to demanding treks in the spectacular upper reaches. The park has an information centre at Larji and a visitors centre at Sai Ropa on the Banjar–Gushaini road.
