Astronomical Night Trek to Lohagad Fort is a brilliant and an interesting trek. I have never been on night treks leave alone astronomical ones. It was an enthralling and a special experience. We had a really great time here. It was awesome and I totally enjoyed it. Generally, treks involve a lot of physical activities but this trek was more of work to the brains too. It is so nice for all nature and science lovers out there.

The trekking was great. To start with this trek isn’t the treks that we take in the Western Ghats that has beautiful greenery all over. This was more informative, plus this was a night trek. This is something that kids and science enthusiasts will love. The trek is simple and can be tried by anyone. This trek is something that you shouldn’t miss at any chance if you love watching and reading the night sky.

    Astronomical Night Trek to Lohagad Fort was a great experience. To start with the trek was great, there was a fort stay at night, and the astronomical aspect to the trek was pretty interesting. These were the three things that make this trek different and unique from other mundane or not so exciting treks. Taking this trek was the best thing that I had done in the recent times. It was a great and a stunning experience. I want to do this trek sometime again soon as this was the best trek that I have ever taken in my life. I so recommend this to all of you.

    The trekking experience was nice. We had quite a nice trek here. It was a very special vacation for us as it was our anniversary trek. The trek is a beautiful experience. It is interesting to do night treks, and what’s more interesting is to do treks that involve more than just the physical work. This trek involved watching stars and it was fun. In short, I loved it.

    This is one of its kind of trek. When I say one of its kind, I truly mean it. Not every day we come across treks that are so different and unique. Yes, there are treks that are unique in its own way but this trek is unique in all ways. This trek is something that you will never ever regret taking. It is fun in its own way. The astronomical aspect of the trek is fun as well as informative.

    The trek was a great experience. We did have a great time with the trek. It was exciting and enticing. This trek is worth every penny spent. We had a really great time. The astronomical aspect of the trek was the main USP and I always enjoy good treks especially night ones. This trek is not that difficult so you can take this if you want a laid back relaxed trek.

    This trek is fun and cool. The trek was well organized and the guides were polite and talented and treated everyone like friends and not like clients. It was something nice about their hospitality in here. I totally loved being here.
