I have planned many trips before with various travel agents and I must say you are one of the best Trek planner/Trek leads I have had the pleasure to interact with. We thank you very much for all your work and dedication to make this trip happen! Thanks to Satish and nikhil to complete the trek before sun burn .

Their expertise shone through, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable trek.

The trek leaders have good experience and are very helpful during trek with all the necessary details that one need to know.
I would suggest to carry minimum luggage as possible as the trek is demanding with high endurance so keeping the luggage at minimum only essentials like water, energy bars and drinks, will help you once the 75% bar of the trek is done😅....also would be nice if you practice cardio beforehand atleast 15-20 days if you don't go to gym, it will really aid you.
Overall a very good experience with treks and trails.
