Initially, you will walk around the field close to the trees, your eyes would just keep on staring. One would just sit and wonder. A door to the magical world where words go numb. While walking the lane covered with Deodar forest, the air around is a mix of various aromas of trees flowers and a typical scent of animals with flowing river and slope of Glaciers. The trek is a walk down the slope, following the little trail through the scarce woods then sounds of the river flowing, an ascend to the Snow of Glaciers, snow-covered mountain peaks, soaring into the skies and then a final descent.

That satisfaction is indescribable. Moreover, this trek makes a circle. In short, this magical trek will blow your mind away! We would recommend it the best trek for the adventurous starters.
