Gurgaon has a lot of party hubs but this one stands out. With unlimited food, drinks, music, and dance, Smaash Cyberhub created a special place in my heart. Every New Year's party I spend somewhere near Gurgaon or Delhi. And this time also, I didn't find a better option than this. I took my friends to this place.

Being my first solo trip, I was too nervous prior to boarding the bus to Kasol. But man, what a trip. First of all, I encourage all the readers to try going solo at least once especially on the mountains. The experience was overwhelming. I met other people as well in my journey that came via thrillophilia that made my trip pretty interesting. I enjoyed every bit of it. Whether it was on road, at Kasol or the kheerganga trek, I enjoyed every moment. Since it is October, the weather dropped significantly at Kheerganga, which was surprisingly pleasant for me. The trek was pretty hard but my guide helped me reach the destination comfortably. He was a lot friendly too.. I enjoyed the food as well. The best part was the bonfire at kheerganga to loosen us a bit. To sum it up, each and every moment of my trip was something I'd relish for a long, long time and I just can't wait to plan my next trip again. Thanks Thrillophilia. Cheers!

It was my first trip after waiting of long six months due to covid. This was first time I booked some travel plan and thrillophilia was the best option. I was so enthusiastic that as soon as Himachal opened its borders I wanted to be there and no other site could do it but thrillophilia arranged it. I am solo female traveler and my coordinator Mr Rohit and Tushar made every possible way that I am safe and comfortable during my trip to kasol. The trip was so well organised and planned that I didn't have to worry about anything. Thank you thrillophilia and team for great support and concern. I am looking forward for another adventure with you guys. Talking about kheerganga trek, it's amazing experience, full of greenery and water falls. It pushes your limits as it has some steep ascends. It took 6 hours for me to complete. Hot water spring is delightful after long tiring trek. Only a true mountaineer will understand how it feels to complete a trek.
