We were hoping to feel tired and worn out but surprisingly despite the tough trek it was nice and enjoyable and we were with high energy levels even after the trek. This was definitely a nice trekking experience. We had some great memories to take back home and share. I really loved the whole travel too as it was a road trip for us.

    I recommend this trek totally, and I guess you will thank me later. The trekking experience will be super cool. It was an amazing experience overall. Also, this trek was inexpensive and in budget that it didn’t leave a hole in our pockets like other trips did for me.

    Trek To Chandrashila Peak Via Tungnath was one of the good treks that I have ever been on in the past few years. Preiously, there were not these many treks. In the past few years, Indian Travel industry is booming, and there are a lot of new trekking spots. However, one must pick these wisely. Some spots are awesome, while some are just boring. This trek in Uttarakhand is a traveller’s heaven. I had a plenty of plans for my travel and the trek was the highlight of my travel. It has varied sightseeing and trekking options. The state is best to take long vacations to.

    The climate is quite cold here so make sure to carry all your winter trek gears. I loved the trek totally despite the cold weather. For the past few months, I am being a regular trekker and, I do a lot of short weekend treks. I wanted to take an actual long trek. Somehow, I took a week long break from works and took this trek. This is definitely a nice and a challenging trek. I totally loved being on this trek. I just wish that the food was better though.

    It was an interesting trek. This trek was hands down the best trek that I have had. I had a really great time. It was our honeymoon, and many claimed that trekking for honeymoon was so unromantic, but she loved it and I was happy. We had to push our limits further and finish the trek as we were super tired and not ready for the trek. We had full sense of excitement when we completed the up trek. The down trek was complicated and super tedious. We ended up so tired.

    Each one of us enjoyed this trek a lot. It was a worthy trek. This was a fun ride. Most of my friends were first time trekkers so they were all a little uneasy. They kept cursing me for planning a trek as they were expecting a relaxed getaway, but the trek I took had great organization. It was organized with ample breaks and camping for all trekkers to enjoy irrespective of experience. It was relaxing, refreshing, and rejuvenating. One trick here is to book tickets for flights early.

    This was a really good trek, except for the fact that the trek was a little bit hard and tough.They said the trek needed medium endurance. I did do a lot of warm-ups for 2 weeks before the trek, but my legs became sore and I couldn’t walk.

    This trek was the challenging and most gruesome trek I ever had. My legs gave in after a while, and thanks to the camps in between, I could relax. Still, it was a good trek, just that I was not well trained beforehand.
