I have joined the group for Tirthan Valley trek which was of four days. This trekking experience was very different from my other treks. It was really so smooth when it is about transition from one vehicle to another. The accomodation facility was super amazing and the location was very peaceful and beautiful. I have covered all the sites which were mentioned in the itinerary. My trek leader, Miftah, was so professional and cooperative. He took care of all the little things as well which made the trekking experience wonderful. I would recommend to those who are thinking about to go on a trek to go with WanderOn team.

Recently went on Himachal backpacking trip with Wanderon. One of the best experience, the trip was soo well planned and organised. The stay at every place was very good and comfortable. One of the best crew to go on hassel-free/stress-free travel. Would recommend to anyone who want to start their solo travels. Thanks for the wonderful memories, Wanderon!
