    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.

    Exciting trek to Laka Got Glacier. Seeing this place is just so amzing. I never thought even in dreams that such places could exist in India but it was just so good. We had two day trek-one day to Triund and another day to Laka glacier. There was a camp stay too and there the facilities were nicely arranged. Some of the beautiful places which fell on our way were Dhauladhar and Kangra mountain ranges and Lahesh Caves trail. Seeing these places was just out of this world. We camped for two days and both days were superb with a memorable dinner and a lot of laughter with friends. Our tour operator was also funny and friendly. It was a superb trip.

    My friend and I were looking for an appropriate Laka Glacier tour package, and chanced upon the deal in Thrillophilia while surfing online. Needless to say, we were immediately attracted by the price offer and decided to go forward with it. The tour did not disappoint us. The experience was fairly short, but extremely enjoyable and well managed. The staff was extremely supportive and friendly. The meals were wholesome and delicious.

    This was the first trek of my life and it was an experience that's roused a hunger for adventure in me that I never knew existed. The first night at Triund provided me sights of the night sky I had never seen. The view of Dharamshala and the entire Kangra district was absolutely breathtaking. On the second day, we trekked to Laka Glacier and since we had time remaining during the day, our guide took us all the way to Lahesh Cave and it was mesmerizing.
