    Had an amazing weekend outing with friends at Ratangad and Sandhan Valley! The trek was very well organised, with yummy food for all three meals. Our guide Shankar was very humble and experienced, and helped us a lot throughout. Safety was ensured and prioritized. The views of mother nature were mesmerising, and made our weekend very memorable. The service was very professional and flawless. Thanks to Shankar and team Thrillophilia. Good haul. Will like to come again. Recommended for all adventure junkies like me.

    This is a three day trek but the different experiences make it a worthwhile tour. Saw an amazing sunrise, many beautiful landscapes and made many great friends. Campfire was also there. The tour is best if one wants to combine adventure and nature

    One of the best places to have a wonderful view of serenity at its best. We clicked a lot of photos at the top as it gave a brillaint background. Trek was moderate. Guides were really helpful. Food was a little bit cold and also was not filling. Can go for the beauty of the place.
