“Went for pangarchula trek in month of March, It was a wonderful experience to be there. For beginners, initial two days will not be that difficult. But trek becomes difficult after khulara campsite and last day of summit is most difficult one. But you get a magnificent view from top. Suggestions- Stay hydrated! Eat food properly. Don't carry unnecessary stuff in your rucksack.
