This would be the highlight of one of the most wonderful trails in the Himalaya. The scenery is breathtaking as expected from a trail in the Himalaya. It is not the highest trekking trail, so it allows good walking distances. The settlement is rather basic which gives an othentic impression, that the other famous trails lack. Peaceful and quiet.
Its awesome place for trekking with best nature scene
