                                  Monsoon (June to September): The monsoon season brings heavy rainfall to the region, which can make the trails muddy and slippery and make it more difficult to see the views. However, the monsoon season can also bring some beautiful greenery and waterfalls to the region. If you don't mind the rain and are looking for a more quiet and off-peak experience, this could be a good time to visit.

                                  Group trek: A group trek means that you will be joining a group of other trekkers and will be accompanied by a guide and possibly a porter. Group treks can be a good option for those who are traveling solo and looking for a social experience, or for those who want to save money by sharing the costs of the trek. Group treks may have a set itinerary and may not be as flexible as a private trek.

                                  Private trek: A private trek means that you will be trekking with your own group and will have a private guide and porter. Private treks offer more flexibility and allow you to customize your itinerary to meet your specific needs and interests. Private treks can also be more expensive than group treks, as you will be paying for the guide and porter for just your group.
