HolidayIQ Traveller Snjeev Sharma shares, “The Baspa River flows between the camps and the mountains and the gushing sound of water is clearly audible at all times. The camps are at an elevation from the river for safety, so the river is not visible but it is very near and needs a walk of about 3-4 minutes (100 metres or so). The food is good and is served in a common area which is also beautiful. And one can also sit in the complete open near the bonfire. The trek they arranged for us, river crossing was great. They gave us ample time and suggestions on where to go and what to do.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Carell Andres shares, “The Paradise beach is an excellent place to be amidst nature and relax. I stayed in Paradise beach resort. It provides the best services and has is amazing located in front of the beach. The beach cottages are the perfect with lots of facilities like hammock, sea view, pool, restaurants, bar, spa, etc.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Shekhar Verma from Jaipur shares, "The dramatic change in terrain starts the moment you are over the Rohtang pass. The deep valley of Chandra river on one side and snow clad mountains on the other give you a feeling of being on a different planet. The gradual absence of any form of vegetation is striking. Climbing the lofty heights of Kunzum pass (14500 ft) you feel as if you have reached the skies. The great sculptures carved by the wind and snow over hundreds of years on the side of the river & the small villages dominated by Buddhist religious symbols are a sight to behold. The oldest monastery at Tabo is worth seeing. places to stay are at Losar, Kaza, and Tabo. The famous mummy of a monk at Gyu is near Tabo."
