About this trip, firstly Kasol is a very beautiful place and the camp we were staying at is located Riverside, a very beautiful location and the hosts are lovely ppl, very friendly, camp in Kasol. They've taken us on Trek to Chalal .... This is a trek trail that goes along the river up to the village of Chalal. And next day was the Kasol trek. It is the beautiful trek that I've experienced till now ( not that I've climbed many mountains and hills). It was covered all over with snow. The views were amazing.. We had a guide trekker who took us on the trek. Overall it was a wonderful experience!!! Thanks to Thrillophilia, sincerely!!!!

The work from home seemed quite relaxing until I started to feel trapped. Thus, come 2021, and kept on looking for a workstation trip where I could stay amidst nature and still work. On came Thrillophilia as a genie and arranged the most fabulous stay in Manali. The three-bedroom cottage I was staying in could accommodate nine people and I set off with 4 of my friends. We loved the serene Kullu Valley setting but met our office targets with full gusto. The stay was not just beautiful being situated amidst apple orchards but was a sanitized space with staff performing hygiene checks daily. My friends made the most of the indoor workspaces while I brought about the outdoor furniture to do office work while not missing out on nature’s grandeur. Totally loved how Thrillophilia at such short notice, arranged for a homestay that had Wi-Fi connectivity, power backup and a laptop-friendly workspace. I still miss our evenings where we would gorge on local snacks cooked in the kitchen, by a chef using fresh seasonal produce. If WFM has been a mood dampener for you, give Thrillophilia a try, to arrange a nourishing stay in the hills!

Hello everyone, the round trek was breathtaking. But the experience became amazing only because of our guide - Rahul. Rahul helped me to conquer my fear of heights. He kept on motivating me to go further and also helped me to come down by constantly holding my hand. I went with 3 of my friends and we all loved the service and we made many new friends as well in the group :) And that’s why I will recommend thrillophilla to everyone. And As far as the stay is concerned, it is comfortable and cosy and the vibe is surreal.

I booked this trek at the end of Feb 2021. The weather was somewhat pleasant and a lot windy. The trekking company just started its operations in Leta village after camping in triund got prohibited due to which the washroom situation was not the best. However, the tents were good and the owner was also very accommodating, providing extra sleeping bags to overcome the cold. Our guide was amazing and very supportive throughout the trek. We went till snowline due to time and safety concerns. The food and bonfire were also very good. Overall an amazing experience.
