Popular Sightseeing Destinations
Never thought that the monsoon would be a good time to go trekking but I had such a great time on this trek, and it is definitely now on my top 5 treks of all time. The surrounding looked extra fresh and green during that period, and we had a good guide, Kumar, who made sure we all kept up and were all rested enough to go in with the trek.
The trek started from Silent Valley and our guide took us to the famous Rhodo valley of Meesapulimala. The forest trail leads to the most breathtaking views. After that we camped for the night and it was nice. The meals served could be better, but in all it was good
I had a fun time enjoying the scenic landscapes and raw nature during the trek. Any beginner with no experience in trekking can and should easily partake this trek.
our driver, Nitin picked us from railway station on time and dropped us as well. he was soft spoken and well mannered. we started our trek from Amravati and explored Chikhaldhara region on day 1. next day was all about activities and jungle camp. it was great tour organised by thrillophilia. kudos!!
Nature's paradise is this place. Can't believe my eyes. Such a pretty place I have never come across. Trek was easy. We reached the location pretty late than the expected time due to delayed pick up. After reaching the location, we felt like we were in heaven. Thanks to the guides and the cook. Great food and service.
