Today you will wake up to : Pin valley, this place cannot be described in words , nor by pictures. It’s a feeling. This hidden gem is the end point of famous and difficult pin parvathi trek. Its so raw that there are only a handful of guesthouses here and the one we stay in ,makes Pizzas. Do I need to say more :D.

This is probably my favourite place in the whole trip so I am keeping the pictures to minimum so that you can see it for real. Sometimes I envy people for their feeling when they see a place for the first time, and this is one of those places.
