    Stephen Alter from America/teacher Pittsburg/ Woodstock school Mussoorie

    Thank you very much for Himalayan hikers organizing our trek. All of us had a wonderful time and it was an excellent experience. Though we didn’t reach Baraadsar Lake, the route was beautiful, with great views of the mountains. Your team did a fine job of making us comfortable on the trek. In particular, Surender, and vikram, team was a very attentive and supportive guide. We were all impressed with his ability to lead the trek and ensure our comfort and security.
