To be honest, Discounts and coupon codes are just a marketing trick to fool people. No one offers something below the pre-decided rate slab.

CAUTION: 
Please be aware that even the easiest trek is fundamentally a "Trek," not a Tour, Hike, or Picnic. It's crucial to understand that an unfit individual might struggle to complete even half of an easy trek. Based on our prior experiences, an unfit person might perceive an easy-grade trek as the most difficult trek. Prior to making a booking for the event, ensure that you are in good physical and mental condition for trekking.

    Update as on July 15, 2024 

    Currently the water streams on this trek are active and the view is simply awesome. Weather conditions are perfect for this trek and one should not miss this trek. Its not safe to visit this location by yourself, you should always join a reputed trek group to visit trekking locations. Free activities include swimming in lake, Rafting , and Kayaking.
    Beware! Low-Cost trek groups often have large batch-size, this results is over-crowded trek experience which is not at all worth, nor is such thing considered safe. Mischief Treks is renowned for conducting treks with a limited number of participants in each batch, this helps having a much better trekking experience.
