DGA- Prabalmachi Camping with stories from Everest and Antarctica- 12th November 2019

Escape the heat for a night amidst a hidden village in the forest. An easy trek of 1-1 ½ hour will get us to the village with a huge plateau and a mesmerizing view where we will be camping. Prabalmachi is a midway base village for two of the very famous treks, Kalavantin and Prablagad. Nothing can beat Prabalmachi when it comes to camping location, weather and food. With campfire, stories from Everest and Antarctica by our trek leaders, music, team games, good company and a night under billion stars, it will be a night to remember.
This trek will be led by the youngest Mumbaikar to climb Mount Everest, Parth Upadhyaya who stood on the top of the world on 23rd May 2019 5am. Parth climbed Everest from the tougher and lesser climbed route from the North Face in China. He will be sharing his 9 years of mountaineering experiences during the trek.
