Your connection with the land, while you walk on them, escalates your love for nature in no time. And while in the hills, your bonhomie with the place can never be complete if you fail to plan a trek around the mystical mountains. The Singalila ridge Trek, beyond all doubt, makes sure that you explore the hidden mysteries of the magnificent mountains in the closest possible way, while also strengthening your bonds with them.
