  1. senifa

    I have done my first winter trek to kedarkantha in march 2021 through himalayan hikers .The food provided on the trek on all days was really nice and much appreciated as it was difficult for cooks to prepare in such cold weather ,its a lifetime experience to witness snow ,walk in snow and slide in snow,I am thankful to my guides(ashutosh,rajesh,Manoj) who really motivated us till the summit and to bring back some good memories .

  2. Susmita

    Me and my husband did this trek during Holi on 29.03.21 to 01.04.21.This is our first trek, enjoyed a lot, experience with Himalayan Hiker team was quite good from pickup to drop. Ours was a 47 people group and were guided by four(RADHE, BIJU Bhaiya, Ramesh Bhaiya and forgot other’s name).The guides were very helpful, charming, and funny too, they gave their helping hands whenever we needed. On the very 1st day of our trek, after 1 hour climbing we were exhausted by our backpack, but the guides helped us by carrying our backpack by themselves for the rest of the trek(as Mules were already booked at the beginning).Thank you guys and also sorry for the inconvenience. Food was good at Hotel & Camp. Only problem was electricity & wifi at Hotel, though it is understandable at such a remote location. Above all Himalayan Hikers Rock. Will meet you soon and recommend you to others.

    Had an experience worth a million dollars, a million smiles and so much more. This was one amazing trek for our group of 6 mountaineers and we want to do it all over again, just to see the amazing view of the mountains once again. The trek guide and instructor Mr. Kuldeep Panwar were really amazing. He had all the info about the trek and made it real easy for us.Recommend this for all nature lovers and hard core adventurers alike

  4. Devesh S. Dhake

    I have been waiting for Kedarkanta Trek for around 6 months, but today I have finally succeeded with it because of our fabulous guide Kuldeep Panwar. On summit day it snowed really heavy so it was risky to climb up the summit but our guide made it fun for us and finally we completed the summit.

  5. Rajesh

    Hi,
    Thanks Himalayan hikers team for a wonderful winter trek experience.
    Starting with Kuldeep ji for answering all our queries and arranging the transportation from dehradun.
    Next a big thanks to our guides Santosh and brijmohan for taking such good care of our group.
    They lead the group very professionally and we were instructed about all the activities in detail.
    Also thank to the cooks who provided such delicious food on all days.
    The tents and equipments were first class.

    Coming to the trek the long walks on snow and reaching the summit before sunrise was too good. The sunrise view from summit makes you forget everything else.
    A must do winter trek.
    Thanks once again HH team.

    Shared elaborate story pics from google plus one of the best experiences in my life… thanks Kuldeep ji and Priyanka for connecting us to this experience

  9. Sagar & Pallavi

    Great experience we have had with Himalayan Hikers (HH), this was the first snow trek for us with lots of queries in mind but HH team made it very simple for us, HH people are really very nice, kind, polite and helpful. Thanks to Mr. Kuldeep Rawat sir and his team for giving us a lifetime memorable trekk. If anyone is going first time then you don’t need to worry, simply connect with Kuldeep sir he will guide you nicely.
    Just don’t compromise the necessary things to carry which HH suggest you to carry.
    All hiking gears you can get on rent in Sankri if you don’t want to carry luggage with you.

    Summary about Himalayan Hikers:
    ✓ Safe.
    ✓ Great food quality.
    ✓ All time support for any queries.
    ✓ Well mannered staff and guides.
    ✓ No hurry for fresh or slow trekkers.
    ✓ Stay facility is fantastic.

    I did my First Snow trek ‘Kedarkantha trek’ with Himalayan hikers in February 2020. It was the best best experience ever in my lifetime.. from pick up from dehradun, stay at hotel Swargarohini, trekking experience, stay at tent, best food at this much high altitude. Its was the life remembering experience. And the guides we got were the best till date. Rajat sir, pardeep bhaiya, deshraj bhaiya and Nilam di.. i dont have enough words to thanks them.. they were so polite and so nice with us. They helped me to reach the summit nd the view from top wss mesmerising and unforgettable. Thanks to himalyan hikers for the best experience nd waiting for the next trek to do with you again…

  11. Neha Dwivedi

    This was my first trekking experience in uttarakhand. I had decided to book with himalayan hikers. At the start i was little worried about the services and the place but the team has won my heart. The guides were so supportive “brijmohan jee” ratan jee, mahendra jee. Thank you for all your support. The team has provided fresh food that too steaming hot at such an altitude which is almost impossible for me to think. They have taken soo good care of us like their own child. The team has provided us food at 3 am when we were going for summit which is incredible. Also i would like to thank kuldeep jee for helping me understand what to take and what not in the trek. Overall it was an amazing experience with himalayan hikers and i will surelly book another trip with this group.
    Kudos to all team members.
    Love you himalayan hikers team. Will surelly recommend to my friends.😊😊

    When you review a trekking company, you must also keep in mind why you chose it in the first place. I came to know about them because one of my good friend suggested me to join there. Firstly, these guys are NOT for the fussy people, in fact trekking as a sport is NOT suitable for the fussy and beta males. The Himalayan Hikers are in a league of their own. The guides are local and ARE total beasts at what they do. It is not a company for candyfloss people who throw money at companies expecting a luxurious itinerary in return. It is not one of those places. If you want to know the history behind each mountains, connect with the local culture, experience what hardship in the Himalayas actually means, Himalayan Hikers are at the top of the food chain. I had the chance to trek with Surender Rana, my guide during Kedarkantha. We started the summit at 3:45 am from BC. We were the first to reach the peak with the lowest duration. About the food, they have employed probably the best cooks from the valleys. I doubt if any other companies come close to them in terms of experience in trekking, cooking. The secretary, Shri Chain Singh, is what a gentleman and businessman should be. He eats his food with his employees. The guides and his subordinates respect him to the fullest. And maybe that is why Himalayan Hikers have such an incredible customer retention.

  13. Shirish Gupta

    It was simply an A+ experience for me and our entire group. From the second to the fifth day, there was only trekking and trekking. Great views of the Himalayas, amazing trekking routes, snow blankets to walk over, everything was so beautiful and clear. Kudos to HH team! Such a delight Kedarkantha trek!

  14. Sudipta Mitra

    Kedarkantha as a trekking place is a very fantastic place and every should have a trek here in winter season to enjoy the snow and the vast ice fields along with the long walks .
    As an overall review I would like to say that it’s quite good. As for the Campsite and the service you provided during the trek and the guides and everything is awesome. However some changes to be done to make it even better . For example the hotel in which we were staying was not up to the mark with relation to other other trekking companies . Especially , the hot water supply in the hotel was not up to the mark and they need to add diverse types of food. Also, I can remember the equipment that we had been given was not good , especially the crampon . However, my hats off to the guides as the night we had a snowstorm , they worked very hard to keep the snow away from our tent. I strongly recommend that you undergo this trek during winter and of course , with this organisation.

  15. Jogesh patel

    A very beautiful natural place for mountain and snow lover. It is my third and first trek in uttrakhand region we booked with Himalayan hikers for fist time but we surprise with this hospitality,nice trek leader,nice set up with good views all thing is good for me. Specially team serve ” hot jalebi” at 12k it’s awesome expireance for like me Gujarati person. Food is always hot and team is very comparative and motivational. Keep it up and looking for next trip.
    Best

  16. Usha Adhikari

    Awesome experience, Kedarkantha was my first trekking experience , its not about only treck but also the guid and other services including food/ lodging. I and my team are like beginner for treck, but the team of guids(Ramesh bhaiya, narender bhayia and gyan bhayia) provided by Rawat ji was really nice.They all are so supportive and motivational people, it is very important to have a great guide. This team has proved to be quiet efficient in a lot many ways. They are patient for the slow trekkers, great entertainers and even greater cooks. Most important was food which was served was really giving us homely feel and commendable .

    Our experience with the Himalayan hikers was really amazing.

  17. Mansi Nagda

    Amazing experience and best part was the service
    Better ng vegetarian I always had this doubt of good food but they provide superb and amazing quality food and that’s not it
    A such an altitude where we won’t even get water to drink we would get food like almost atleast 4 times a day ( freshly cooked not packaged )

    Being a first timer and beginner in trekking we could complete it with utmost ease

    The guide and the staff is amazing

    I was in constant touch with Kuldeep ji and right from our pick up from Dehradun station and drop to.Dehradun station we did not feel uncomfortable or anything

    It was the best experience

    Also when we went there were many trekeking groups which were closed due to government regulations for their problems

    But Himalayan Hikers have their own property and you can totally rely on them

  18. Akshata Dorkadi

    I have been trekking the Himalayas for 7 years now (not too many years, I know!) But trekking is my life. I like to explore new places, new people, experience life as it comes.
    Himalayan hikers is a great team of different, warm and fun people who help you through the trek. For trekking at extreme temperatures, it is very important to have a great guide. This team has proved to be quiet efficient in a lot many ways. They are patient for the slow trekkers, great entertainers and even greater cooks.

    Our experience with the Himalayan hikers have been amazing!

    Kudos to the team!

    One can never go unless the mountains call for you. Have a great time trekking the Himalayas!

    I had never been to Himalayas and Kedarkantha was my first trekking experience. I did not know much about the places and what things to carry, but thanks to Mr Kuldeep who helped a lot. It was once in a lifetime experience, the steep climb was very hard for me but the support and motivation by our trek leader “Mahendra” was enough to boost my confidence. When I reached the summit I felt out of this world and words are less to explain them!The towering mountains looked extremely captivating and the peaceful aura of this place is unforgettable. Thanks to all the mates and team members for being so kind and helpful.
