      I don’t have any special tips, but I would request you to respect the Himalayas and keep it as pristine as possible. Have a good trip!

      Pankaj, do carry warm clothes and good trekking shoes. Also carry a walking stick or get one locally. I am not sure if the GMVN facilities have been rebuilt after the floods, so please check current situation before planning the trip.

      Not a very difficult trek. Suitable for beginners too.

    Pratap, it was wonderful to see your pictures. Which month did you do this trek? Can you recommend a trekking agency? We are planning to do this trek in the first week of March.
