This was my first experience of trekking.....Ashish, our guide, mentor, coach.... made it one of the most beautiful experience.......no spoon feeding still always there to help.....everything was planned according to our comfort and as we desired... The location is undoubtedly mesmerising......hemkunt sahib is like heaven.....though there were not much of flowers in valley but it's still one of the most beautiful places I have seen....lots of positive energy around the grave..... I am definitely going to continue trekking......what's going to be the next location is not decided....when is also not decided....but yes!!!
