The trekking was very good. Also as we had a small group all the arrangements were good. As we did not expected more snow it was fun walking in snow for full day to reach the ABC. The view was spectacular at the base camp and got quiet good photos. Guide/Porter was very co-operating and helped us a lot while walking in the snow (as we did not had proper shoes to trek in snow :) )

The trek was exhilarating! Since we went during off-season/ monsoon season, it was not as crowded as every one told it generally is. We were just two women in our group, and the guide and porter were very helpful and friendly. However, we felt the communication could have been more proactive from the vendor agency. But the arrangements came together in the end, so no issues. Thrillophilia's rating for difficulty level is apt. This trek is not for anyone who doesn't work out on a daily basis. But as the trek gets difficult, so do the rewards, in terms of the views. Overall, it was everything I wanted and more, I loved the experience of the trek and had no difficulties along the way. I wanted a thrilling and difficult trek, full of breathtaking moments, filled with peace and quiet, so I got that and a sense of being close to heaven and the gods!
