    Trek was nice but so much of tiring :) whoever is planning for this trek i would like to suggest them to do few stretching exercises at-least for 3-4 days before this trek. Relaxing on peak of Skandagiri under sky roof along with Stars and camp fire was superb :) Thrillophilia is all safe and reliable and organized :) Even I went alone in a group , got good accompany . You will find decent crowd. Sujay our trek leader was nicely coordinating with everyone. Some Tips :- 1. Do stretching exercise before 2-3 days of actual trek 2. Wear Trekking Shoes only 3. Do not wear Jeans as there are so many Rocky patches to climb up. 4. Carry Winter Jacket and cap as early morning you will find its tough time to survive from cold :) 5. Torch by default for Night Trek 6. Try to keep your bag light weighted as much as possible. Overall experience was nice.

    It was overall a well organized trek but for a couple of things -a. picking us up a little late. b. number of people on the trek was huge. The trek organizers/guides including Swamy were very responsible and friendly. One of them even took some good snaps of/for us :). The bonfire was very much necessary at the peak and we had fun keeping the fire on nullifying the effect of strong winds :P. Overall the trek was fun and memorable except for some constant unnecessary noise created by a bunch of people who were part of the trekking group. Would like to go on more such trips.

This being my first trek I am happy to tell these experiences & moments were possible because of all the coordinators who helped us.I am going to get more of my friends in the future events.

    Skandagiri night trek was an amazing experience... 6 out of 7 participants were 1st timer (from perspective of trekking)... Ishan has been the 1st point of contact at Thrillophilia... he is an amazing partner and ensures that his customers are well informed and he goes out of his way to help... He even surprised us by joining us for the trek just to ensure that we had a glitch free time... Swamy - our guide was a fantastic resource... he knew his area and subject... great point to share is that all of us came back un-hurt considering it was 1st time trek...

    It was very good experience for me walking in the middle of night in wilderness, wow i always wanted to do that. Need to appreciate the guide's patience as our group was struggling and the last one to reach the top but he was there to guide us back and fro. Looking forward to have more such experiences with "Thrillophilia". For me its complete paisa vasool:-)
