I have been to Kedarnath trek (4-3-2017 to 9-3-2017) along with my friends. I really appreciate you guys for making this trek a memorable one and immensely grateful for having spent the best time of my life (till date). Even though, inopportunely six members cancelled their trip at the last moment Hike to the Himalayan members didn’t cancel/postponed the trek and this is quite imposing and an invaluable display of great gestures. The accommodation and transport facilities provided to us were impeccable. The food was extremely good and our guide ( Mr Guddu Singh Rawat) is well versed in handling each and every situation gingerly. It was an amazing experience and I would like to mention that I will definitely rely on your team for my future adventures.

What began as an adventure getaway for me, turned out to be, one of the most memorable experiences of my life. The landscape across the ride is magnificent, from rocky mountains to pine forests, every inch of our trip was fascinating. One of the most cherished experience would be when we camped at night in cozy tents, and cooked food over a camp fire right in the heart of a forest:) We explored Nelong Valley, went for crazy adventure sports in Rishikesh and even conquered the Vasundhara Falls trek. I've returned back from the trip with memories to last me a lifetime and counting down to the moment I can go back :)

Skiing Basic Course, Auli: This is a paradise for the avid skiers. While you are an avid skier like me, go ahead and take it, you will not regret it. However, if you are new to skiing the if might be a little tough although this is a basic course. The Auli skiing course centre is located in Garhwal range of Himalays. This is almost about a 250km drive away from Haridwar. We reached here from Rishikesh which was 320km from here. The best part about Auli is that it offered us with immense opportunities to indulge in skiing. Thanks to its high altitude ranging between 2500m to around 3000m! The Skii trip overlooks the majestic peaks of Nanda Devi, Kamet and Dronagiri.

One of the best things that the British gave us is this chanced discovery on a lost path called the Valley of Flowers. This was discovered by the British traveller Frank Smith in the early 1930s. I read his book titled Valley of Flowers. It quite created something inside me. I being a nature lover, this made me feel so nice, and I ended up taking this trek. The Valley Of Flowers Trekking is one of the most sought after and the best treks to take ever.

My spouse and I, signed up for this Trek during July 16’ 2017. This is our first trek and experience of the Himalayas. While I agree that I did get carried away by the images on the site, but apparently the valley is not always in full bloom. There are meadows with variety of flowers but if you go with the pictures in the site, you would be a bit disappointed. Instead I would recommend you carry the expectation to view green meadows as far as your eyes can see, with patches of purple, blue, red, pink flowers across and occasionally streams flowing in your pathway. Yes, you can drink water from these fresh water mountain stream! Is’nt this an amazing experience! ? ? I just loved every bit of this trek, starting from the Trek Leaders obsession to ensure we are all fit and fine, the small Ghangharia village which bustles with life only during the season of June – Oct, occasional small pitstops selling hot chai and maggi enroute the trek, the glaciers that we got a chance to see and step on, the never ending view of mountains, the beautiful flora (pics inset), the still ‘reflection’ lake atop the Hemkund Sahib, a helicopter ride (my bucket list) , Badrinath, a chance to visit the last village of the Indian Territory – Mana (wow!!), and last but not the least, have hot chai from the last teashop of the Indian Territory. I never expected to get the opportunity to see this village nor interact with the people there. Thank you so much to the Trek Organizers. Overall we did ~47 km of trek on this rugged terrain with steep ascents. We never expected that we could push ourselves so much, but Himalayan range is so magical and serene that you end up getting your strength from nature to push yourselves. I would highly recommend folks to take one chance to visit this land of the mystics! It is a life time experience!
