The Fishtail Off the beaten path trek is ideal for solitude seeking adventurous trekkers, who are looking for a camping trek. This beautiful trek leads us through green mountain meadows, with innocent herds of sheep grazing nearby. Meanwhile, pieces of clouds fluttering in the blue sky, next to full blooming Rhododendrons and snow-capped peaks in the background. It is one of the most picturesque short camping trek of “Nature Trail”. This is a well-rounded complete countryside tour, where you learn a lot about the nature, culture and life in the Himalayas. In addition, enjoy a beautifully clear sky full of stars very close.

Who does not want to be close to nature and experience the sound of silence? Here we are to take you there!
