Our group at village Mana. we really enjoyed the trip.

We trekked to the deepest part of valley of flowers. Upto 9 kilometers inside valley of flowers. That was really a nice experience. I will soon be posting some of the pictures of the group. And a good eleven people made it to last. Although we got stuck for two days (one day at Badrinath and One at Joshimath) but we played cards in our hotel. All in all it was one of my favorite groups.
