Just a view of the glacier will make you come here every year. It was my third trek to this glacier and this time, I did it with my old school friends .We enjoyed each and every moment of this 8 day trek experience.The trek difficulty is moderate ,but if you are a beginner than do the trek with experienced trekkers as it becomes challenging at various points.Overall it was a great experience for me and my friends.
