The onset of spring brings a wonderful cheer to the forests as the Rhododendrons are in full bloom during this time of the year. Sunset over this red forest is a pretty amazing sight to behold.

In cases where we are unable to proceed with an event due to such circumstances that are beyond our direct control, we will make every effort to provide you with an alternative trek that is safer and more suitable.

In such situations, we will issue a voucher to offset the cost difference between the originally scheduled trek and the alternative trek.
