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

Trekking on snow is not at all easy it may seem easy in cheesy Indian romantic movies. But the view that you get here is definitely the same and much more beautiful then what you see in movies and net.

Chandrakhani Pass Trek in Himachal Pradesh was a very interesting trek. I had a really great time with the trek. I enjoyed the trek a lot. It was a tough trek especially to me as I was not trekking for quite some time now, but it was a brilliant experience to say the least. The tent stay on Day 1 was great. Despite the insects around and a bit of uncomfortable chilly feeling, it was a nice experience overall to stay in tents. The trekking was a short and a nice one that followed.

A beautiful place for friends and couples. A perfect tour for anyone who wants to spend a weekend trekking in the nature's arms. Weather and undoubtedly the views are the best part of the tour. Its a small and must trek!

The place is very attractive untill the landscape changes when you approach the trekking pass. Be prepared for a lot of hard work that will take a toll of your body. First time trekkers must be cautious about the height and the landscape. Trekking is not recommended for families. Overall the stay was good.

You will fall in love with this place while trekking in the mountains crossing the forests. You will be repeatedly pointed that you are alive. Camping was fun but the equipments were not what it was expected. A little disappointed on the management. The trip could have been better if the services were better but overall i would say it was a Good Trip.
