As it was my first trek ever, I was very unsure about the expedition but started liking it as soon the the trip begin. Trek leads were friendly and well organized. The safety during our time at the waterfall was taken care very well and the information regarding what all to carry and what to expect during the trek was very accurate. Overall, I had an very good first experience and looking forward to go for more with The Great Next.'
