I am really thankful to my groupmates for suggesting such a great trip.It was an awesome once in a life time experience.
This was my second trekking experience in Himachal Pradesh. I decided to trek to Bhabha pass because I had heard a lot about the stunning views on the route. But since I was backpacking through the state, I needed a budget package that would help me on my journey. Thrillophilia was the cheapest and most well-planned option, and fit right within my budget. Logistical issues are the biggest drawback of solo travelling, but I had a smooth experience with Thrillophilia. Everyone should trek to Bhabha Pass at least once in their lives- it is definitely worth it!
The overall experience of our Bhabha pass trek was absolutely amazing! It was a positive start from the very beginning as the booking experience with Thrillophilia kicked off smoothly and without any technical complications. The organisers were professional and helpful which built our confidence to go ahead with the trek. We were made aware of the difficulties and challenges from beforehand, which made the experience even more pleasant since we came prepared! Will remember this trip forever.
