Excellent
Minakshi Devar
Well trekking on the hilly terrain of himalayas has always been my favourite trekking expedition. Spiti valley trekking has moderate trails and green surroundings. Better To go in summers, during rest of the season this Pin Parvati Pass experiences heavy snow fall so the condition becomes unfavourable for trekking. The exciting trip takes about eleven days, a worth visiting place.

Udit Mukhopadhyay
To be honest, this trek was quite average. I felt it was rushed up. However, what made this trek unique is the way it was planned and scheduled. I so loved this trek. I had a really great time here. This is mainly because it was well planned. Also, we had a super friendly, jovial, and a talkative trek guide who shared a lot of inputs and stories about the trekking here. Also, the safety of the trekkers were well ensured which is again a laudable effort. The food and stay were fine too.
