Try to catch up to her pace on an uphill climb, I dare you, I double dare you. An accomplished mountaineer, Reetu's love for trekking and travelling started 8 years ago. From then onwards, she left her lucrative career as an electronic engineer and pursued her dream of travelling around the world. A good book, a campsite by the river and lots of dogs and puppies is what keeps her going. Don't forget to ask her to make a cup of masala chai and Maggi for you, it's delicious. 😃
"Jammy" as we fondly call her has been trekking and backpacking all over India and neighboring countries for more than 10 years. Her favorite drink is tea, her most comfortable bed is under the stars and the mountains are her second home. Working earlier as an Interior designer, Jammy found her calling in the mountains and now she has been successfully leading and guiding teams on treks and expeditions for 8 years . If you are up for some tuneless karaoke and lots of singing, reach out to her
Polaroid camera and solo trips, that's Rikin. He has traveled across length and breadth of India exploring different cultures and collecting amazing stories. Rikin has worked with multiple MNCs as a software developer before he took up a career in traveling. When the bonfire is lit and he isn't holding a camera, you'll mostly find him with a guitar crafting some melodies.
"The Great Escape" upholds its name, literally! Among the couple of trekking organisations that I have hiked with in Himalayas, TGE is one of the best. They plan the trek very well, adapting the route and camping locations to factors like weather and the footfall. The support staff is experienced and deft, food great, and trekking practices "green". The organisers themselves are friendly and look after the group well. At the same time, they are firm, decisive, and in a mode of continuous improvement! It is a pleasure trekking with TGE, and I would highly recommend them! Good luck Reetu & Jamila...and keep rocking !
The review is long due. I went with the organizers of The Great Escape multiple times and it was a very memorable experience. Well organized and curated treks with attention given to the minutest details. The organizers Reetu and Jamila are the best and I would recommend them to any
Here from the past few trek experiences organised by The Great Escape are GREAT 👍 Professionally a well organised and friendly team, you guys (Reetu & Jamila) have built a great team (on & off the field) Almost this team is very good in all stages like the accommodation, food, travel, guidance & instant decision making. They value the time & money spent by their customers. This unique experience – it is much and seriously appreciated. Continue delivering the same 👏 Hope to join more trekking/trips in future with The Great Escape 😊 Best wishes to grow big & bigger 👍
Joined the Spiti Valley trek ...Very well organized in every aspect ( Travelling by Road , Homestays , Trekking ) ..Reetu & Jamila you both are super girls, good knowledge about the terrain, always ready to help & take care of every team member...I would recommend everyone to go with these guys ...
Very well organized treks. I know the organizers personally and can vouch for fun filled events that they organize. I have already done three Himalaya treks and taken multiple trips with them. They're my go to travel companions
I have attended only one trip/event with TGE as of now and I loved it. It was well organized, the organizer was really cooperative and helped everyone in the team to make the trip a memorable one. I'd highly recommend this group to all friends and family and would love to attend their future events. Thank you.
