Trekking with wandering souls was a safe and good experience. The team leads were genuinely caring and made sure of everyone's safety despite having a large group.The trek was well designed and it also had an introduction session which served as an icebreaker and made the batch more friendly towards eachother. The crowd was decent and blending, you can meet and make new friends. It was my first time trekking with a group and I would join them soon πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

It was my first trekking experience and I am glad I planned it with the best. Overall experience was very great. The weather, the people, the view everything at its best. Wandering souls made my first trekking experience memorable. Looking forward to planning more trips with them.
