    Amazing trek with exciting trails and we really got our money's worth! Trip was well planned and executed. Special thanks to our guide who was very cooperative through out the trip. I had heard a lot about Malana village and always wanted to go. When we reach this village on day 4 it was like dream come true. We did camping at remote places and meet some of the amazing people during the trek.

    Passing through the narrow and unknown terrains were the most exciting. Greeneries all the way and the snowy peaks made the trek more intriguing for me. The best thing about these treks is that no matter you are you would enjoy the trek.

    Beauty and fun! This trek was an amalgamation of fun and beauty totally. We had a really great time with the trek. The trek led us to the beautiful scenaries, landscapes, and picturesque locations of Himachal Pradesh. Our camping sites were amazing where in the evening we used to listen the stories of fellow trekkers.

     Rated : 4.0

    The trek was really nice for the rate we paid. Most treks are costly if they are to be good. This trek was good but not costly. The trek started with a forest walk throughout. After going through the forest, we went up the snow capped peaks. These led us to the further ranges of the Dhauladhar range of Himalayas. It is one of the popular ranges. On the other side, slowly we saw the Beas valley. We camped at some of the beautiful locations before reaching the peak and completing the trek. In short, it was a memorable, adventurous, and a fun-filled experience, to say the least.
