    Hi Admin,

    Is the night trekking allowed here. Plz help. If yes. What would be the ideal time to start the trekking

    • trekkerp Post author

      Night trekking is allowed but sometimes local people give you a trouble. The ideal time to start the trek will be around 10 o clock but be careful during the monsoons. It might not be fun at all to trek in the rain and spend time at the peak seeing no beauty
