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 :)

What an experience it was. we came across a lot of greenery items in between that was looking cool but were poisonous. The trail was marked and guide was with us so the whole experience was like exploring any known world. Snaps we took at the peak was great, behind us was a cloudy view, making the photographs awesome.

Best suitable for beginners, but care is required while trekking. We had taken all safety measures before the trip and no doubt we had awesome experience.

Camping is something that was long forgotten after school. Recently, I happened to camp at Auli and it was the best thing ever. I had an amazing vacation. The camp was well organized and well managed. I really loved my vacation to the core. The best time to do camping here is in summer. It is a good vacation spot to take your children to.

i had always heard of places like manali and ladakh but this place was no lesser than heaven, we had camped in a valley beside a river and the view was so beautiful i cannot express in few words. Snow covered mountains all around and the cool flowing river covered with rich vegetation . it is one of the best place in India.
