Trek To Chandrashila Peak Via Tungnath was one of the good treks that I have ever been on in the past few years. Preiously, there were not these many treks. In the past few years, Indian Travel industry is booming, and there are a lot of new trekking spots. However, one must pick these wisely. Some spots are awesome, while some are just boring. This trek in Uttarakhand is a traveller’s heaven. I had a plenty of plans for my travel and the trek was the highlight of my travel. It has varied sightseeing and trekking options. The state is best to take long vacations to.
This was a really great trek. We got the chance to see Ganges and Alaknanda river while travelling from Haridwar and Rishikesh. Our trek was stared on 2nd day and we got to see the amazing sights of Nanda Devi which is India second highest peak. The trekking experience was fun despite being tedious. Apart from the weather, the trek was indeed an enjoyable experience. Everything was well arranged from transportation to food. Would love to go for more treks in Himalayan region.

Very Good
Dayara Bugyal is Out of the World!! We did a Winter Trek, so got to see a lot of Snow & also experienced Snowfall. However, the Trek is not easy & is definitely not for Beginners. We were 3 Ladies in the age group of 50-55, 2 of whom were 1st time trekkers & had a tough time making it to the top. One of them turned back from Gui as she developed severe leg cramps. Also there was only one guide from Raithal to Gui, who went off ahead with the Youngsters, leaving us to fend for ourselves. Ideally, there should have been 2 guides. Once at the Camp however, things were well taken care off. With limited resources, one cannot & should not expect much anyway.
Experience overall was good. But since this is a covid situation we had local porters who were quite new to the trek and were reaching the campsite almost in our pace. Because of this the food we got was getting a bit delayed and lot of times we were starving after the long day of trek. But trek leader was good and he took care of everything in case of any problems.
We recently booked the Gaumukh to Tapovan trek with Thrillophilia and I must say, it was one of the best decisions that we made. All the arrangements were flawlessly made and the trek guide was super friendly. We had ultimate fun with this adventure trip. Kudos to the team for their excellent involvement in ensuring all the arrangements are done with precision.
I’m thoroughly pleased to recommend Thrillophilia, who made our whole Panpatia glacier trek a pleasant experience. My partner and kids thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Initially, we were a little apprehensive about the whole thing. However, from the booking till the last day, the local guide was friendly and helpful.
From the start till the end of the tour, no issues at all, The whole tour gave us excellent expereince.
