I had the opportunity to go with JB for the Winter Spiti Ride 2020. It was wonderfully planned and executed. Although we had issues of road blockages, it was very wonderfully managed by Pankaj, the team Captain. The stay at all places were comfortable. The overall experience was very good and would definitely recommend JB
