Goechala Kasturi Circuit Trek - An Elaborate Description

This trek is a slight different to the otherwise popular Dzongri Goecha La trek. While most of the trek route remains same, the return route is different as this trail treks down the Prek Chu valley to touch Lampokhari, a beautiful lake and then down to Tashiding.
