Miyar nallah trek & Pangi valley trip 12 nights 13 days
Manali– Miyar nalla  – Udaipur – Tindi – Darwas – Sural Bhatori – Saichu nalla – Tandi - Keylong

“Everything went according to plan until 3rd June, when we changed itinerary from Urgos overnight to Udaipur.  On 5th June we hoped to reach Saichu, but a rock fall on the road forced us to stay at Tindi. After that we had little time for Sural or Saichu nallas, staying only one night at each.
The general arrangements were very good.  The vehicles were good and so were the drivers. Pemba was extremely careful as well as being helpful around camp.
We enjoyed the food; Tashi is an excellent cook and did Indian, European and Chinese food equally well. The lunch sandwiches were very good until brown bread run out. We had lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Tashi was very helpful and efficient in other camp tasks.
Overall: A wonderful experience.
Staff was cheerful & tried their best when there was a lot of rain. Food was 5 star hotel qualities.”
