If you are looking for a nice trek while in Ooty, Glenmorgan Trek should be your ultimatum. This is just so perfect. Taking this tour pack helps as it will reduce the burden of finding a gang to trek with. As I am new to South India and have no trekking pals here, I took this package, and I now found a whole lot of trekking pals during this trek. It was worth it.

The trek was something that I never planned. We were visiting Ooty and Nilgiris, since my friends insisted that we take a trek, I took this and it was all last minute. However, this was so perfect way to end our trip. Most of the time at Ooty and Nilgiris was laid back, so this was an adventurous and exciting way to end our trip. Also, this trek is not very tiring, so we did have fun without tiring us totally.

What a pleasing trek. We went as a family, and all the cousins wanted to do trekking while the parents had gone for shopping. We roped in almost at the last time, and it was well organized. We had a nice and fun trek. We really liked the beauty of the hills and the trail. It was somewhat tiresome to an extent, but overall it was just worth it. Also, the trek didn’t cost us much.

It was one nice trek. This is a beginner level trek that can be taken by anyone. With some basic strength training and warm-ups you can do this easily. I am not a trekker, but I could do it with just few says of working out before the trek.
