    The Pindari Glacier! What an amazing Trek. The freshness in the air, the colorful meadows, dozens of waterfalls, and valleys that you will be passing through in this trek will keep you intact with the beauty of the Himalayas. Not so hard and not too easy, I completed this trek while enjoying all the gifts of nature with 4 of my friends.
    The trek leader was amazing! Very professional and skillful. He knew the whole area very well. He was flexible and listened to our requests and take care of us well above what we expected. The camping, food, and snacks all are the best that someone can offer in such remote treks.
