So, we have picked out some trails among the wild and untapped jungles of the country.

Pali Waterfall Trek, Goa

The first thing that comes to mind when we think of Goa is its stunning golden west coastline and the vibrant celebrations that the place is so proud of. Goa, on the other hand, has a lot more to offer.

The Pali Waterfall, also known as the Shivling Falls, adorns this sunny state and is one of the country's most exotic jungle hikes. The falls are located in a little community called Valpoi, which is surrounded by one of the state's most dense rainforest districts. Keep a lookout for the resident reptiles and cobras.

The terrain on which the walking track is built is pretty challenging, making it ideal for experienced trekkers. The trekking trail begins in Valpoi village and is approximately 6 km long. Gravel roads, muddy streams, and thick, lush greenery make up the path.

Talle Valley, Arunachal Pradesh

Some of the world's largest pine forests can be found in Arunachal Pradesh tucked in deep valleys filled with bananas and venerable fern trees. The Talle Valley in Arunachal Pradesh is well recognized as a jungle trekking destination since it is a treasure trove of nature with extensive flora& fauna and has the highest forest cover of all Indian states.

The hikes here are characterised by thick bamboo patches that are unique to this area, as well as lush natural vegetation. However, for the most part, the jungles in this region are still devoid of the urban touch and human interference, as activities such as jungle hiking and forest camping have yet to flourish.
