During the total of 9 days of trekking and 2 days for transportation, our entire group enjoyed a lot. Luckily, most of our group members were from hilly region and we were able to get acclimatised to the climate easily. Keeping all these aside, the trek was truly and purely an enthralling experience for us!

    Seriously, our entire group used to wonder, from where do you got so much patience? The trek was a fantabulous experience for all of us. Especially the visiting to different villages were the best part apart from the Himalayas.
