The stay at kund was a very pleasant one. It had wonderfull golden views of Kedardome. Sound of mountain river just below the campsite was like a soothing lullaby. The fully blooming rhododendron gave the perfect reddish look of the season FALL. Now as we come to the part of the trek to deorital, the day started with a double puncture of one of our car which was to take us to SARI. But to our joy it provided us the perfect excuse to start our trek right from kund. The opportunity gave us time to photograph the kedar dome from a height and on the way we also came by a hilly waterfall which gave us plenty to take home some mesmerizing photographs. By the time our car was ready to take us to Sari. On reaching Sari we started our climb to Deorital Lake . On the way we filled up our water bottles from a mountain spring and wow the most refreshing drink i had in my life off cousre accompanied by chewing of rhododendron petals. On reaching deorital we were greeted with patches of snow and a mesmerizing view of snow clad-en peaks of Chaukhamba. We could even capture the reflection of the cliffs in the clear water of the lake. After having a packed lunch we descended down to sari by taking a visit to hilly temple. On the way back we went to Ukhimath, the winter home of BABA Kedarnath. The secondays climb was from Chopta. There was snow right from Chopta. We claded our shoes with the mandatory spikes and started our climb throw the snow laden valley and mountain sides of chopta taking occassional breaks. The temple of Tungnath was almost under snow. After taking a break at tungnath we further ascended to Chandrasila peak making new path through the fresh snows. And like we were on the top of the world with 360 degree view of Nanda Devi, Trishul and Chaukhamba. The weather had by then started getting little naughty with patches of black clouds hovering around. After taking a quick packed lunch we started our descend, which was packed with thrills and surprises courtesy our guide Monu Rana. We went back to our childhood days by sliding and rolling through the snows like 3 year old toddlers and just yelling in excitement. On reaching chopta we boarded our cars to be back to kund. A heavy downpour welcomed us to Kund and let us have a unique experience of heavy mountain lashes. Next day we were back to Haridwar after having a tastefull lunch at Jayalgarh. A wow experience of lifetime in my sixth trek.

All the arrangements, food, logistics, and support was superb. Both our trek guides especially Mr. Narendra supported and took very good care, continuously motivating and helping throughout the journey. This trek requires good fitness and endurance, it would have been good if we were given a heads up about the steep trails and low oxygen. Other than that I loved and enjoyed the experience. Happy with Thrillophillia team. Devashish was also very patient and helpful.
"This is one of the finest treks I have ever been to. The food was too good. Love the team and how they talk is a treat to watch. Overall, it was a relaxing and mind-blowing."

Reading lots of thrillophilia reviews I decided to go through them for my trek. Amazing trek & experience ! Have been to few other treks but this one will be right at top. So beautiful 360 degree views, along with perfect snowfall! Deoriatal, Chopta, Tungnath & Chandrashila makes it a complete package. One can also combine Haridwar/Rishikesh, either way of the trip. It all starts from beautiful Sari Village. Then we reach Deoriatal camping. Its surreal site and great views around. One can easily get lost with the 360 degree views all around. Next is Chopta. Again a swanky place to stay in Swiss tents , with snow surroundings. Next day, one starts for Tungnath & Summit. That greed to chase, reaching the top & feeling so liberated, is totally worth it. All-in-all, a must go trek.

Thrillophilia Team(The Booking Platform) : *****(5 Stars) The Valley Of Flowers(The Destination) : *****(5 Stars) Trip date: 8th Sep 2018 So I decided to heed "The Mountain Calling" I have had from last year by gifting myself a trek on my birthday. The main obstacle at that moment was where and how do I start zeroing in on a location and planning. With little effort as a word of mouth I came to know about Thrillophilia platform and half of the job was done in no time. It was very easy and convenient to browse through the trekking locations sorted based on different parameters, packages with detailed information, itinerary and user reviews to make up my mind and choose from. Whatever doubts I had Devashish from the Thrillophilia team was very patient and thorough in helping me through my booking. So Thank you Thrillophilia team for providing people seeking adventure a one-stop solution to book. Happy and proud to say: The Valley of Flowers - Been There Done That! Next, my experience was riding on the logistics and the operator took me by surprise as they swiftly eased me through my apprehensions(i had many being my first solo trip in many many years) right from the time they were assigned as the tour operator for my trek. I found them prompt and precise in sending welcome mail and briefing about the trek and the decorum we needed to maintain in mountains, quick and responsive in every query I had regarding the trek and preparation. I liked their approach of keeping shorter groups and making one to one connection with the whole group to be able to cater to everybody's need to the max of their capacity. A personalised call from trek leader is what I don't expect in this digital age having all the information in the mail or some form but since it was about ensuring that we followed every instruction and didn't miss on anything it felt like a special treatment. We were accompanied by Mr. Narendra Baharwan(Trek Leader) and Samiksha Khanduri (Trek Guide) from the team. I found them very professional yet friendly. After a point, it looked like it wasn't their job but their passion and that's what helped to take their services to next level. I was impressed with their regional associations and tie-ups which helped us to get an essence of the Pahadi culture throughout our trip. I found Mr. Narender as cool, calm and composed leader exactly the kind of person who can get us through challenging and panic situations in mountains. And I could almost call our guide Samiksha "The Trekkipedia" and at times I thought she knew too much (maybe I was jealous ;D). The hotel stays were comfy exactly what you need to rest and recharge yourself for another day challenge. Being a fitness freak I'm very particular about food that I eat. And I was surprised with the food we were served and especially the quality. It was very close to what I eat at home. Also, I would like to use the opportunity to thank the team for a kind and surprise gesture on my birthday improvising on the cake and a flaunting gift. One of the highlights of the trip was responsible and eco-tourism. It felt good to do our bit in maintaining the ecology of mountains. It was equally inspiring to see our host's and Pahadi people's conscious effort to preserve and conserve the nature. And not to forget mentioning meeting some very like-minded and dynamic people in the group was a life fulfilling experience and icing on the cake. And by the end of the tour, everybody appeared almost like long lost friends and it became a party for us. Trek Leader: Mr Narendra Baharwan Trek Guide: Samiksha Khanduri Pilot for the Rides: Mr. Mukesh Auli Lodge Manager: Mr. Bhuvan Ghangaria Home(accommodation) and Food minister: Mr. Shamsher Thank you operator team for your exceptional services!! :) The Valley of Flowers Trek: Being a nature lover I always feel attracted towards nature's wonders. And while browsing on Thrillophilia it didn't take me too long to select the destination as it mentions a blanket of flowers covering a valley in a few km stretches. What a sight would that be was my question to which I had to find an answer. Although there's a peak season catch to be able to see full blossom. Since I visited the valley almost end of the season I saw fewer flowers but I wouldn't say I was disappointed as the mountains standing tall and the waterfalls were mesmerising enough and we could enjoy them totally to ourself as the valley was less crowded at this time. So that's a tradeoff which a person has to decide from but it worked well for me. Sitting beside a waterfall in the lap of nature and drinking mineral right from the source was like unfolding nature's secret. So I do list the location as must visit for whoever seeking nature's blessing and adventure and it's both challenging and soul soothing.

Highly recommended! Visited here with my family. Amatra By The Ganges, Haridwar is situated by the banks of the Ganges. The staff was very helpful. The spa facility was outstanding. Looking forward to visiting again!
the street food of Haridwar will definitely bring me back to the city for sure... the trip was very well planned and we were right on time to enjoy the Ganga arti.. a must thing to experience in a life time. and a road trip to Mussoorie was a cherry on the cake.
We recently went for the Chardham yatra and it was a very amazing experience. The trip was well organised, we did not have to worry about anything. The hotel arrangement was very good, the meals were tasty and hygienic, the cab driver was also very good he had good knowledge of the routes and temples. The entire journey was so mesmerizing, beautiful mountains, holy rivers, falls all were so captivating. The Kedarnath and Badrinath temple is amazing. The positivity one feels after going there is incredible. Also we took a bath in the holy river Ganga and attended the Ganga Aarti.
The Chardham yatra was a nice experience. It was like a dream come true for my parents. They wanted to go for this trip for many years and recently I surprised them and we all went for the yatra. We had so much fun visiting all the temples, we even had a proper darshan at all the temples. It was fun trekking at a few places and it was such a great feeling bathing in hot springs. The Kedarnath temple is so beautiful , the location is mesmerizing. Totally loved the trip.
