Just Amazing. Each day a new landscape. We went in September 1st week and luckily we got rain only on the first day and rest the weather was absolutely amazing. This trek being very famous is very well organised, with food and tents all good quality. Also loved the sleeping bags they provided, they are really warm and you won't feel a thing once inside.

I was damn excited for trekking in Hampta valley and finally I had it in June 2014 . It was completely an out of the box experience. I prefer going for such short trek, where you can not only pursue some adventurous activity but can also explore the natures beauty. The long standing trees,beautiful wild flowers ,snow capped mountains and small hot river streams is what makes it unique package for trekking lovers and nature enthusiasts
