I was expecting a simple trek, but this seemed to be a dicey and challenging one. Most of my co-trekkers seemed to enjoy this and the overall service was good. We got enough time to explore Nagar town. Our base camp was very good and tents and sleeping bags were of very good quality. Amazing part of the trek was jeep ride as it give us opportunity to see beautiful mountains and landscapes.

Wao it was an awesome trekking expedition with my family, though short holiday type buy enjoyable. The trails are easy and camping can be done in Pandu Ropa and Rola Kholi. There are large green feilds which gets covered with snow in winters.This lake actually lies between two mountainous peaks near Rohtaang pass. The kullu valley is home to beautiful old village and natures beauty. In this trip you will also see the apple orchads, finally trek ends in vashist.
