Differs from person to person. If you think that it would help you maintaining balance while trekking then do bring the pole. Some people think that trekking pole disturbs the walking rhythm. So it’s upto you.

I have been to many campsites before but this was the best campsite that I ever laid my eyes on. It is located at the perfect spot right on the banks of river Ganga. It is peaceful and quiet there, away from all the traffic and noise. We felt like spending the rest of our lives there. The tent accomodation is the best I have seen. you sleep of right under the stars near the cool river. the perfect adventure feeling. the staff there is the best and management is brilliant. The food we had there was so amazing that we did not miss home food at all.
