The trekking experience was amazing! Our guide, Mr. Dhiraj was very supportive and his enthusiasm at taking us to various locations of the trek was unending. The food and accommodation was simple and nice! The trek route till Triund is fairly easy, and slightly challenging at some stretched towards Laka glacier but picturesque throughout! Just one suggestion, it would be nicer to have snow tents rather than having the regular tents. No amounts of sleeping bags are enough to keep out the cold.
