You will get the touch of the water from the falls only after reaching the other side of glacier and below the glacier the water is flowing continuously. So, every step requires more alertness.
But the journey was very beautiful and fascinating. The place is entirely safe and clean. We completed this trek in June 2017, and amazing part was that we used public transport starting from Delhi itself. We get a chance to have conversations with different locals.
