Well trekking on the hilly terrain of himalayas has always been my favourite trekking expedition. Spiti valley trekking has moderate trails and green surroundings. Better To go in summers, during rest of the season this Pin Parvati Pass experiences heavy snow fall so the condition becomes unfavourable for trekking. The exciting trip takes about eleven days, a worth visiting place.

Chandratal to Baralacha La trek in Himachal Pradesh is the best thing to do in Himachal Pradesh. Himachal Pradesh is all about treks and mountains and adventure. With such beautiful climate, it is just spell binding to do a trek. This trek was definitely the best trek that I have taken in my life. It was just so brilliant and I had an awesome time with the trek. Also, the trek was just perfect with moderate to high level difficulty, thus it was challenging but not too painful or tough. I would definitely recommend this trek to everyone out here.

I was expecting a simple trek, but this seemed to be a dicey and challenging one. Most of my co-trekkers seemed to enjoy this and the overall service was good. We got enough time to explore Nagar town. Our base camp was very good and tents and sleeping bags were of very good quality. Amazing part of the trek was jeep ride as it give us opportunity to see beautiful mountains and landscapes.

I was impressed by the services of hotel staffs in manali from where we started our journey to the exciting adenture of himalayan hills. The food was really tasty, the resataurants were really good . Our trek was divided in many smaller part and i felt each smaller trek was completely new and unique in itself.
