Although it was a challenging trek but we had the best time of our life. We were 2 friends who went on this trek. Bright blue skies and vast ranges of mountains always in the view. It was such a beautiful sight with the mountain ranges. We were provided with good food everyday. Roti, sabji, dal was there and sometime we also had some egg dishes. Our guide manish was such a humble person; he was helping us with the trek route all the time and taking care of us. I even remember one incident when one of our trek mates hurt her leg while climbing. He took care of her very well and even band aid her bruise. It was a great trekking adventure for all of us.

We were 8 friends and it was like a dream come true. I was looking for some good packages when I saw this one on Heyhimalayas. I connected with the guys and wanted our tour customized. These guys were really amazing and made all the required changes. We started our trip from Manali and drove through the sights of barren lands of Lahaul and Spiti valley through Rohtang Pass. The trek was a bit challenging one. The peak appears for the first time while crossing a small lake approaching the base camp. We also had another group of 6 that joined us for the trek. We passed through many small streams and dense forest. But the best part of me was when we reached Kibber, we visited the monasteries there and chatted with the shepherds. And the best was the small stone houses which looked very cosy. We took this trek during the month of September 2016. We were provided with tented accommodation, the tents were firm and very spacious. The only problem I had was regarding the toilet facilities. I didn’t find it that hygiene. It was such a beautiful sight when we reached the top. Food during the trip was average. Overall a good experience.
