This trek is popular amongst seasonal trekkers and the beginners due to its beautiful forests and stunning clearings making way to multiple campsites across the trek. The trek is not easy and is steadily steep right from the start.

[Book Summary] “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” by Richard Bach

This is a summary to a short fable in the book “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” by Richard Bach which was my companion while flying from Bengaluru to Jaipur in 2019 .
