    I’m 1st time trekker, our guides Jyothi Singh ji and Mr Gabbar was with me during entire Path during trek. In certain difficult segments guides walked hand in hand.
    Thanks to Team for all Logistic arrangements- Great food, tea and snacks.
    Very Rewarding trek- In the same Journey we get to see Forest, Alpine lakes, Snow fall, Snow trek and Also beautiful starry sky!
    This was surely not a easy trek. Need robust fitness to do this trek and Enjoy it.

    Embarking on the Brahmatal trek with Himalayan Hikers from December 18 to 22 was a truly magical experience. Harimohan and Kavita’s expert guidance ensured a perfect blend of adventure and safety, while the delicious and diverse meals warmed our spirits amid the snowy landscapes. The meticulously planned itinerary, comprehensive pre-trek briefing, and insightful historical context added layers to the journey. The summit experience, with detailed explanations of surrounding peaks, stood out as a highlight. Himalayan Hikers not only provided a safe and well-organized trek but crafted an unforgettable winter adventure filled with warmth, delicious cuisine, and enriching narratives.

  34. Srabani Samanta

    We just completed the Brahmatal trek. It was amazing and HH was extremely professional. Our trek leader Amit Rawat was attentive, caring, observant yet disciplined. Each camp site was chosen with care.
    We were a group of 10 of varying ages & capabilities. Not all of us were well st start of the trek either but thanks to the amazing team we managed to complete the trek. Hats off to their patience, caring attitude & professionalism.
    Though ours was an autumn trek, it turned into a winter one after 4hrs of hailstorm, blizzard at Tilandi top. We were served hot food on most days and their food is really good.
    The quality of equipment- tent & sleeping bags were also decent compared to other trek companies.
    I would definitely go with HH again.

    • Himalayan Hikers
