most beautiful meadows in the country, the vibrant meadow of Dayara Bugyal has

trekkers are particularly taken by many emerald lakes strewn across Dayara
Bugyal. Another first-timer trek on the list, the best months to visit are

I’m a diehard lover of challenging treks and Panpatia is one glacier that will challenge even professionals…Amazing trek, beautiful place …images of the entire trek keeps flickering in my mind.
It’s only when you start walking that you realize you are actually walking on a glacier. Trekking on such a massive trek is challenging but definitely an experience that you can get nowhere else.
We had a team match amongst the trek group. We would race to spots like Badrinath and Kedarnath. The team reaching late will compensate by doing some tasks. It was fun and exciting. Would definitely recommend it to friends.
The guides accompanying us were very good. The trek was fine. The peaks were mesmerising
My trek mates were just awesome. They were all so friendly. We all belonged to different states but, felt like a family. The groups were well-arranged by the guides to help us enjoy. We were all the same age that is why we enjoyed so much.
