Perhaps one of the hardest but yet most rewarding treks that I had to do. Had a great time and the organisers were also super helpful and kind.

What began as an adventure getaway for me, turned out to be, one of the most memorable experiences of my life. The landscape across the ride is magnificent, from rocky mountains to pine forests, every inch of our trip was fascinating. One of the most cherished experience would be when we camped at night in cozy tents, and cooked food over a camp fire right in the heart of a forest:) We explored Nelong Valley, went for crazy adventure sports in Rishikesh and even conquered the Vasundhara Falls trek. I've returned back from the trip with memories to last me a lifetime and counting down to the moment I can go back :)

Yes, the first few days were very impatient as we had to wait to make it to the Jaundhar Glacier. Then it came on the fourth day of trekking after we got to enjoy the lush beauty of the Har Ki Doon valley on the third day. Trekking was pretty easy and was very exciting. Must mention here about the treatment we got from the trek guides and staffs. They were helpful in all the ways and did their best to make us comfortable at such great heights.

Wow, what an experience. The entire place is so beautiful, I have had the best pictures clicked, for a photographer this place is certainly a must. Great trek, great people - I'm definitely going to Garhwal pretty soon. The entire region provides you with ample natural beauty - I'm truly in awe with this place.

Tunganath is the highest temple of Garwal. While I was on this trekking, I witnessed the pristine clear view of majestic peaks like the Panchchuli, Nanda Devi, Nilkanth and even Kedarnath. Chopta is too underrated. It even gives a beautiful and picturesque view of the whole Himalayas. I guess the early spring season is the right season to trek. The Rhododendron forest actually glows red as the flowers bloom during the spring. It was a very nice trek. It starts and ends in Haridwar. I had a great time. WOW, is an understatement to explain how awesome this trek was.

As I close my eyes, I can vividly recall the moment when I reached the peak after a long trek full of patience. There were tears of joy. I’m truly blessed. Incredible India!
