Client's Feedback

Garhwal Trek "Thank you for the amazing trek. It was, for sure, one of my life's greatest adventures. We were lucky to see the Snow Bear and to go through many villages. The beautiful mountains, the people and the organization were all good, but most of all I would like to say that without Dipen (Guide) this trek would not be nearly as good as it was with him! His experience, calmness and knowledge are great. Dipen is by far the best guide I have traveled with." Andreas Gleason, Vancouver, Canada
