No superlative, no amount of hyperbole, is enough to describe this. It's undoubtedly the prettiest trek you will ever come across.

Gurgling streams and brooks crisscross the valleys that come after a pass crossing, each of which is different colour and offers a completely different landscape to the last. The rolling plains, the sudden maple clusters and silver birch forests add to the splendour of the trek.
