Great Himalayan National Park, Manali Reviews
A trek in the Himalayas was on my bucket list for long and when I heard just how easy it could be with Sunshine Himalayan Adventures, I just jumped at the chance. And to be fair, the company totally lived up to it's Reputation. The experience of the pristine surroundings, the sound of gushing water all day long and sighting of beautiful birds was capped off by the care and comfort afforded by the guiding team. Piping hot pakoras by the riverside after a hard but beautiful trek, freshly made food served with a smile at every meal time , made this trip truly a memorable one.

The Great Himalayan National Park is a wonderful place to go for trekking. Not so rushed with people like Manali, its remote and quiet. You'll get to see beautiful architecture, local food is not guaranteed though. Place is so peaceful and extremely beautiful. Must Visit.
