Thanks to the team for suggesting us an easy trek (from Manali-Lama dugh), showing a very nice view for us. We love the time spent with our guide in these three days as he is a really funny guy and he is really professional in the trek. And we love the views, It was perfect.

    Rani Sui Lake Trek with Broza Adventures was an incredible experience! The whole team was quite knowledgeable, kind, and very careful about everyone's needs. Personally, I was always made to feel very safe and left free to just take it all in. Everyone on the team is happy to introduce you to the local culture and very pleased with the new experience. Be mindful of the cold temperatures on the night trek in Manali. It may not seem much for some. I'm very thankful to the Broza Adventures team for all their hard work and for making this trekking one of the best experiences ever. I will be back!
