Well trekking on the hilly terrain of himalayas has always been my favourite trekking expedition. Spiti valley trekking has moderate trails and green surroundings. Better To go in summers, during rest of the season this Pin Parvati Pass experiences heavy snow fall so the condition becomes unfavourable for trekking. The exciting trip takes about eleven days, a worth visiting place.

I strongly recommend you to take all neccessary measures and precautions befor starting out your adventure, because its a long trek that takes about 13 days and some pretty challenging trails. Our journey begans from Manali which itself is so beautiful place to discover.

"The best view comes after the hardest climb." - This cannot be more true. Few months ago, two of my friends and I were just looking for a small vacation break and wanted to visit the North region of India. As we were a beginner, we were looking for trips with average difficulty. Taking a chance in the unknown, we went ahead to book the Chanderkhani Pass from Thrillophilia. Since this was our first trip into the mountains, we were both, nervous and excited. On reaching there, we did few activities including rappelling and acclimatization walk. The scenic beauty from the base camp was superb as we could see the mountains covered with the snow. The excitement to reach there doubled after that. Day one ended on a good note after we were given a brief orientation about the next three days. We started for the Chanderkhani pass on Day Two. As we were marching towards the Naya Tapru camp, we saw a lot of natural scenery including green hills, snowy mountains and small waterfalls. On reaching there, we had our dinner and a born fire to end the day. Day three marked our marching towards the Chaklani Camp which was our last stop. From chaklani we marched towards the Chanderkhani Pass which was an uphill on snow. After an hour of ascend in the snow, we finally reached the peak of Chanderkhani. The view from this point was incomparable and totally worth watching. For descending, we did snow slides with the help of the guides which was a different fun all together. Taking the memories of the this few moments, we went back to the Chaklani camp. On Day four, we started to descend back to the base camp which was a journey of 4 hours. To sum it up, it was an amazing experience for us and I recommend this trek if you are a beginner. Ending the post with this,"Travel is the only thing you buy, that makes you richer"

Chandratal to Baralacha La trek in Himachal Pradesh is the best thing to do in Himachal Pradesh. Himachal Pradesh is all about treks and mountains and adventure. With such beautiful climate, it is just spell binding to do a trek. This trek was definitely the best trek that I have taken in my life. It was just so brilliant and I had an awesome time with the trek. Also, the trek was just perfect with moderate to high level difficulty, thus it was challenging but not too painful or tough. I would definitely recommend this trek to everyone out here.

I was expecting a simple trek, but this seemed to be a dicey and challenging one. Most of my co-trekkers seemed to enjoy this and the overall service was good. We got enough time to explore Nagar town. Our base camp was very good and tents and sleeping bags were of very good quality. Amazing part of the trek was jeep ride as it give us opportunity to see beautiful mountains and landscapes.

We were a group of 50 students who went on a trip booked through thrillophilia. We had two stops in our journey, Kullu, and Prashar Lake. Kullu: We reached Kullu after an overnight bus journey. There were 10 tents, each with clean attached bathrooms. The tents were in a secluded area by the riverside. The location was beautiful and private. We did river rafting (around 4 kms) and rope activities by the day time. Around the evening, we all enjoyed by the bonfire. You can also walk around the streets during the day, and get a feel of the place. All in all, it was a very memorable experience. Next morning, we left for Mandi in a bus, and then left for trekking to Prashar Lake. It was a picturesque 7 km trek, doable for beginners. The view was extremely scenic especially at the top. There were 14 tents for all us, and a sleeping bag for each (The temperature had really fallen due to a hailstorm). Tasty food was served by the lake . There was a great view of snow-clad mountains from the location. All in all, the place was very serene and beautiful. One drawback was, that there were just three dirty bathrooms for 50 people. This trip is very suitable for adventurous people wanting a break from the city life in a destination which is not overcrowded.
