The arrangements done by team Aahvan Adventures were perfect and we did not face any problem during our journey. All in all, it was an amazing and chilling experience.Superb experience! I never thought I could trek so much and yet not feel tired! But I guess I have to credit the sheer beauty of nature for it

This trek was one of the best experiences of my life. I have had many adventurous experiences across the world, but the this was unique. The customer service was outstanding.The tents and equipment provided where in great condition and we were always warm and dry. The horses which carried all the gear were well fed and cared for by the pony man. They all looked very happy and healthy compared to some of the others horses we saw along the way. Aahvan Adventures were professional, have fantastic knowledge and experience, but what I liked the most is how trustworthy they were!!! Good for: adventure, All tourists, hiking trekking walking, Fit people of all ages, amazing nature..

The trek was amazing. We did it in April which I can recommend because you are the only one on the mountains next to a handful of local farmers and the wildlife. We saw Bharal, Gray Wolves hunting a Yak!, Golden Eagle, Chukar Partridges..The organisation of the trekking was 100%. Good staff, new gear, lovely food, strong and healthy horses, friendly guides and a ecological approach..Thanks Aahvan Adventures !

We all had a fabulous, memorable experience in a spectacular part of the world, mostly as a result of the cheerful attention, professionalism and local knowledge of the team. We would recommend them to anyone and many operators in more developed parts of the world could learn from their example.If I have to describe this trek in one word, I will say ‘wow’ !!!!
