  1. Nupur Dobhal

    Himalayan hikers made sure that we have a memorable, safe trek trip to phulara ridge. We were a small group of 4 and they made sure that at all times we get the best of food, service and safety. They ensured to have a very well versed guide Devendra Rawat who had very good information about the flora and fauna of the region as well as well trained in all mountain related first aid. Overall it was a beautiful experience and I am glad to have picked Himalayan hikers for this trek. They are a sankri based local agency that organizes treks and what better then making sure that the people of sankri get the most from the mountains around.

    Food was good, so was the stay in the tents .
    I can say that we were pampered.

  4. Sunita Ravi

    We did phulara ridge with Himalayan hikers in April 2019. This is our 4th trek with them and we have always been supported by their excellent team, the Rawat brothers. For a 4days trek the views of the mountains were mesmerising., the meadows were filled with rhododendrons, buttercups and irises.,
    The camp sites were so pretty and the food served by them is always great. The ridge walk itself was like walking in the skies with the lofty mountains seeming like arms distance. The highlight was lunch and a nap in the lap of these magnificent views. Himalayan hikers are almost like family and their guides are amazing( special mention Mr Gangaram).
    I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to trek in the HIMALAYAS and looking forward for many more incredible journeys with them.

    Phulara ridge trek (4th trek with them) Fantastic trip, extremely supportive folks, always so cheerful, even with 10inches of snow around; bringing hot pasta to your tent at 4pm and shaking the snow off your tent at 3am! They are totally reliable and safe, and help you feel totally confident in yourself and your own ability! Thank you team Himalayan Hikers. Shukriya
