Togedr - Himalayas Griffon that conducted this trek for us was exceptional. The trip was surreal for us as we were there during peak snowfall. Though the trek during his time was definitely not easy and was quite challenging out trek guide made sure of our safety and we mage sure we have a pleasent experience. To mention specifically the food provided all the days were so exceptional and they have provided everything on time. Being a solo traveller I completely enjoyed my journey with other folks kudos to the team.
