"Amazing experience to soak in beauty" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 6 days ago
It is an amazing experience to soak in the beauty, serenity & calmness of the trekking journey leading to the destination. The top of the hills relieve all the stress and takes one to a world of their own. An exciting 3-4 days trip which will leave you wanting for more and surely your heart will skip a beat if you have to go back to a metro city! The weather is amazing!
