"Fantastic experience!! We went in the summer(may) , still the weather was very pleasant and cloudy. Spending 1 day among those hills without any gadgets has given me a lifetime memory. The weather has changed so many times which made me feel like a couple of days have passed. Best part is camping and trekking, it was a moderate trek, but the leeches tortured us a little, the camp location is breathtaking, calm and beautiful. Highly recommended for nature enthusiasts and adventurers!! ????"
