There are green valleys, spreading out at this point thereby, offering the trekkers a more enjoyable time as they soak in the beauty.

Make sure to make the payments along the trail for accommodation and food with cash. Also, carry raincoats and a light backpack. You will not need any sleeping bag for the trek if you plan to choose these huts for staying overnight.
