This trek was unbelievable experience. From the lush green valleys to the snow clad mountains, it truly felt like heaven on Earth. The food everywhere was amazing, so where the people. We travelled in December, hence there were a few hiccups, like water freezing in pipes, which was another adventure for us. The trek is just above moderate, not too long, but the elevation and the roads might be difficult for beginners. We were a group of 6, and all of us were able to complete the trek with minor difficulties. The experience was beautiful. We'll definitely recommend Thrillophilia to everyone.
