For long I have been planning to go out for a trek along with my friends and was really glad when I saw this amazing Kedarkatha trek. The pickup was on time and we reached our destination. The accommodation and the food were perfect as well. We had the most amazing guide with us, he was very jolly and was telling us about each of the places. Loved this trek.

    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.

    Absolutely fantabulous ! That's how I define my experience to Kedarkantha trek with HikeToHimalayas in 2 words. Myself and my wife went on a this trek and they organised everything for us, making it truly a hassle free experience, so we could concentrate on the hiking and be adventurous all through the trip. The real star of the show for us though was the friendly organisers. From keeping us all comfortable or gruelling trekking, to making sure we ordered food at the exact right time to avoid any crowds. Food was indeed far above expectations. By the end of the trek it was truly was like a homely environment to each of us. Most importantly the toilets were clean and very hygienic. Our porters were also fantastic, making a show of us by carrying out heavy bags up the trek faster than we got up ourselves. And always with a smile on their faces. Amazing experience and I cannot recommend HikeToHimalayas enough. Looking forward to be a part of your treks more often. Cheers, Vaibhav.

    It was first trekking experience for me and my family, and no doubt it was the most amazing one. We never expected Uttrakhand to be so so picturesque. Kedarkantha is really beautiful, covered all around by mountains, the photographs we took there make us feel that we are still there. We went there in December .Our family enjoyed the most in camps. The entire trek was very well professionally organised with delicious food and friendly ,as well as well informed staff. Will definitely opt for the sevices in future as well.
