I have done 4-5 treks before also but, This was my first experience with Thrillophilia. While booking on mobile app, I faced a problem of Transaction not getting successful, then I tried on website from my PC and it was done. This was the only hurdle I faced throughout the whole experience of trek with Thrillophilia. Also, I wanted to opt for another instructor as my friends were appointed with a different instructor, so I called on the helpline of Thrillophilia and they did it without any hassle. It was a night trek hence we were told to gather at Kasara Railway Station at 11 PM to start the tour. As we reached there, we met our Instructor and he did all the necessary things to take the whole crowd to the Kalsubai base village. It took 1.5 hour from Kasara to base village and the arrangement was precise of taking everyone together in Bolero Vans. As we reached there everyone was told to freshen up for a bit. Washroom was made available in a house of the base village. After that a simple Introduction and Briefing was done before starting to climb the peak. We all started at 3 AM and reached at the top at 6.15 AM. After reaching at the top, it was a mesmerizing view. It is 100% worth visiting Kalsubai for the view and the feeling which you will get after reaching at the peak. It was 26th January, so all 200-250 trekkers hoisted the flag and sang National Anthem. Cool breeze was blowing, Sun was rising slowly and the words of 'Jana Gana Mana' altogether created a different vibe. I can't explain it in words, it can be only felt by visiting at the peak.... After all this, all were taken down the peak for refreshment/breakfast which was arranged by Thrillophilia. It was not so good and I was not even expecting it to be better. Then it took just 1.5 hours to me to reach to the point in base village from where we had started. All other groups were coming back as per there speed and capacity. After returning back, some Boleros were arranged for the people who wanted to return back to Kasara ASAP, it was very helpful and convenient. Nice arrangement. Overall experience with Thrillophilia was very good. Nice arrangement was done, travelling and all other things were taken care of. And as per my knowledge, no one faced any kind of problem due to inappropriate management. So, a big thumbs up for Thrillophilia and the Instructors.

The best arrangements I have experienced in a while. The team was quite good and kept motivating to move forward. I have been doing treks quite often but I guess this experience was one of it's kind. The food arrangements and the travel arrangements were on the mark

I have done trekking earlier but this trek was completely different, we started the trek at midnight and it was an unforgettable experience, we visited the peak and the weather was a bit cozy. The guide was energetic right from the start and showed us the best path. We all enjoyed it and had the best memories there.
Very good place and worth visiting. The guide was excellent and tell us the stories of the place, we really enjoyed his company. We had a group of 16 and we had unlimited fun in just a short span of time. A big recommendation from our side.
The Kalsubai Peak was very beautiful and relaxing, gave the goosebumps while sitting and watching the sunrise.. totally breath-taking. The breakfast was up to mark and the guide was helpful and friendly nature.
Best Trekking experience in Maharashtra till date. Prabalmachi is a beautiful place and we suggest all our friends go there once. It had everything a photographer, adventure lover or natural lover wishes for. We had recorded the entire journey and people loved it. Amazing views of the greenery, mountains and flora and fauna. The star looks amazing in a clear environment. Highly recommended!!!
