This trek was the best trek ever. I had an awesome experience. I totally loved it. I always prefer trekking than instant adventure sports. Lake treks were something that I wanted to take for a long time now. I had a lovely trek recently here in Dagala, and it was indeed a brilliant and an exciting experience. I loved it totally. The trek was super enticing and exciting. As a trekker, I was more than happy about the trek. The trekking is quite tough but good practice at basic training and ample trekking experience or even with good warm ups, you can enjoy the trekking completely. It is indeed a lovely surroundings and landscape too. I guess that goes without the saying.
