My trekking to this place was above average I should say. We went as a gang of five and I have to say that four of us in our gang were first time trekkers, still all of them were able to cope up with the whole trekking part. We had ample time left for even sightseeing the other places, we roamed and took lot of pictures. I basically liked seeing the whole peak from a very high altitude of 4100km. We actually didn’t plan for this trek, we visited Delhi and my Delhi friend said me about this trek, I immediately took this trek and am totally satisfied.

I never had an experience that touched the ethnic villages, during this trek trail to Patalsu I got a chance to have a great view of some of the great villages like Burwas and shollang. And I have to admit that our travel guide was a very sensible and entertaining man, he guided us well throughout the trip and saw that we were communicated in our local language. The food was served on time and the camp stay was also good. No regrets at all.
