As you ascend, you’ll be surrounded by lush forests of rhododendron, oak, and pine, alive with the melodious chirping of birds. Be captivated by cascading waterfalls, crystal-clear streams, and serene alpine lakes shimmering against snow-capped peaks.
Altitude and Weather:

Acclimatizing gradually and listening to your body throughout the journey is essential.
