  1. Susmita sen

    This is our first trek It’s been a great journey for all of us and also this was our first ever trek and we all give a big thanks to Himalayan Hikers who provide us great service like their food, transport service, camping facility and their trek guide and the all facilities from their side is up to the mark ..and we really enjoyed there ….we all had a great memory. One suggestion for those who planned for nag tibba trek is “not an easy trek specially from nag tibba camp to nag tibba summit it’s little bit moderate – once again thanks to himalayan hikers and Mr. Kuldeep Rawat ji

  2. Ganesh Sharma

  3. Life Alive Sunitha

    Himalayan Hikers are not only professional but care for their trekkers like family. Very safe and personal attention given to each one of us. Food and hygiene is very good. Had a wonderful trip to Phulara ridge last week. This is my 5th trek with them. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to trek in the Indian HIMALAYAS.

  4. Som Moon

    “I was a solo trekker so I joined fixed departure on 10 December 2018. The whole group was so friendly that I forgot I did not know them from before it was all because of the leader and team. When I checked in hotel Mr kuldeep Singh ji introduced the hotel staff, kitchen staff and the people who were going along with us on the trek. We all got familiar and we all were very comfortable with each other. The same schedule was being followed as we were told and everything went very smooth. Since then I have trekked with them many times and planning more” –

  5. priyanka agrawal

    Team Himalayan Hikers is exceptional. The Nag Tibba trip was surreal for us as we were there during peak snowfall. Though the trek during this time was definitely not easy and was quite challenging, the guides provided us with support wherever needed. I am so happy I took this trek and experienced something life changing
