    I was in Dalhousie this summer and really wanted to do the Dainkund Peak Trek, so I was quite happy when I found the tour online. My friends previously had booked with Thrillophilia and they told me I would have a good time. The trek was really fun, but a little difficult for me, however, I was still able to do I because everyone around me was so helpful, especially Ajay the guide, who made sure I kept up with the group.

    Having trekked the trail with Thrillophilia, I strongly recommend the activity to thrill seekers looking for a beginner level trek. It'd have been more fun if camping was included.
