The track is surrounded by nature all over with trees & flowers, monkeys and other small animals, nothing dangerous. The environment is soothing and refreshing with cool fresh air to breathe. There are no proper shops or cafés on the way up, so it’s better to have water / juice bottles with some snacks before starting the hike. Sometimes on the way one can find a few hawkers selling drinks, biscuits and snacks. The trails end at Monal.
