Solo Traveller

Awesome trekking experience with Wanderophile to Hutridurga. This was my first time going for a trek and the trek lead made sure it was the best experience. I went solo and returned making friends and a ton of memories. The ice breaking games conducted by the trek lead helped everyone get along very soon. Definitely recommend Wanderophile if you want to for treks or trips from Bangalore.
