The waterfall trek was real fun here especially when you are travelling after the monsoon. The trees were more green and the flowers were in full bloom. It was a perfect location for nature photography and flaunting on Instagram. The staff there was so much welcoming and we had a great experience of camping with Thrillophilia.

Deepesh Chaturvedi Malana Trek
Excellent
The Malana Village Trek is one of the popular Trekking spots in Himachal Pradesh. This is near the famous Chandra Khanni Pass. I did a little bit of research before going here. Malana in Himachal Pradesh is a tribal village, and this is considered as one of the oldest democracy in the world. The trek starts at Manali, and the trek ends at the Baralacha Pass on the Manali-Leh road. We took a flight to Manali, took this trek, and after that we went to Leh from the Baralacha Pass. It was a lovely week we had here.5/5
