Very nice as well as unique experience this place has given, far from the city hustle-bustle, relaxing atmosphere with so much to do, the complete place with good camps. Highly recommended.
Our journey till the top went really exciting and amazing. We got to climb the amazing cliff and the climb was all fun. The guide was very good when it came to the narrow path and guided our way to the top. The cold breeze of wind and the astonishing views made it just the perfect place for our group. Thank you Thrillophilia for this amazing trail in Kasauli.
We really loved going for this trek with Thrillophilia. Although we all were beginners, this place kept fascinating us with the history of the Mahabharata. We faced a bot challenge at narrow paths but it was all worth it after seeing the caves and the views from the top. We are completely tired by the end but fully satisfied.
Thank you Thrillophilia for a lovely stay at Kasauli. It was the perfect place to spend quality time with friends. We did zip lining there and then went for a nature walk and later trek in the forest. It was the best experience. The highlight of the day was the bonfire in the night where we had beautiful stargazing and had a lot of fun too.
