It was an amazing experience, as i was so excited already for this trek and the beauty of this place did not disappointed me. It was too cold during the night, i could not sleep as sleeping bags was not enough warm. I would definitely recommend this trek but make sure you are prepare enough to survive in temperature -1 to -5 during the night, you can carry extra thermal wears if you are planning this trek between October -March.

I felt it as a soulful trek. With all my heart and energy, I did it. Great landscape. Pure nature with fresh air. Only one with a good physical strength can do this trek. Staying up there gave me a lot of happiness which I can't express in words. Available food was maggi, rotis, etc. Luxury is not promised in terms of facilities. But in terms of experience, this is a must go trek. Rare flowers, rare wild animals, and a beautiful forest were the main attractions I came across.
