It was a wonderful experience on a whole. Trekking in those serene woods has always been. The things I and my friends liked most are the friendly and the helpful nature of your team. The stormy night and the rain we liked the most and of course the snow clad peaks. The thing that disappointed us was the trash all around the area and yes it needs to be taken care of very seriously. The next on my list are the Chadar Trek and Spiti Valley.
