The Phanaswadi waterfall trek is a memorizing trek that I would never forget in my lifetime. Longing to go on this trek again with my family, I had been on this trek last week with my friends. The whole trek went on smoothly without any sort of problem. The best part which I loved about this trek is the way it was organized. The guides were co-operative and helped us a lot.

When I heard about a waterfall at Belgaum I was not able to believe, I thought Belgaum was all about saris and clothing. But this trek changed my entire opinion. If you are planning for some short time trip that has to be different and fun, you can go ahead with this trip. It is worth the money spent on it. I recommend this trek for budget conscious trekkers.

Legendary Kalsa to Sural Trek, Belgaum is one of the nice treks that one can take. Trekking is fun and what is more fun is trekking in Belgaum. No wonder they call this the legendary trek because it is awesome and brilliant. I would love to have this trek, and I am so glad that I was able to take it.

Taking up a trek to the Phanaswadi waterfall was like an icing to the cake. Each part of the trek is a memory that I would never forget in my lifetime. I happened to take up this trek with my boyfriend and it happened to be a good one. The guides however couldn’t speak in our local language and so we had a bit problem in understanding their language, otherwise everything went out smoothly.

Waterfall and trekking – what can be better than this combination. If you are a lover of trekking and love to enjoy the waters, give this trek to Phanaswadi a try and you will never repent for the same. I was bit reluctant to take up this waterfall trek, but I ended up enjoying to the core at the end of the trek. I am waiting to go for this trek once more.

A very delightful waterfall trek that is not only amazing but exciting too. The overall experience was good and I would recommend this trek. Crossing the border to reach this waterfall destination was a different experience. As this trek is a moderate one even the amateurs can opt to pick the Phanaswadi waterfall trek.

Trekking at Phanaswadi was nice even though I didn’t like it greatly. I am a regular trekker and had better experiences before. Overall the trek was normal and okaish. I didn’t carry proper clothing and this was also one of the reasons for my bad experience. Even though it is a bit scary, it is definitely worth a try.

It was a fun and great experience. I never knew about this waterfall trekking even excited until my friends had planned for a sudden trek to this place. I loved the trekking as it involved crossing the two state borders of Maharashtra and Karnataka. I never wanted this trek to end as it was super cool and exciting.

This is surely a great trek for youngsters. My friends had planned for this trek for my birthday; I enjoyed every bit of the trek. The whole trek was over in a day, and this was one of my best gifts in the form of a trek. The place wasn’t much crowded and so I was able to enjoy each and every bit of the trek.
