I wish that trekking expedition just didn’t end. I felt like staying there forever. Nature is so peaceful, calm and beautiful. I didn’t feel like going back to the same old busy city life nature is so welcoming it makes you feel loved and gives you a sense of inner peace and happiness. I just truly enjoyed my trek. Witnessing the beautiful sunrise in the mountains was the most beautiful part of my trek. I just can’t wait to join you guys again for an adventure trip. Thanks a ton!!

Thank you for giving us a lovely and adventurous trekking experience. I and my family were trekking for the first time ever and we all weren’t sure that we would make it as we all were of different age groups. But as we started trekking the environment gave us some strange energy and we felt extremely refreshed by the cool pure breezes and we didn’t even feel that we were hiking the mountains. And the team just keeps you engaged with their descriptions of this beautiful place Har Ki dun. Trekking Har Ki Dun in the month of November was the bets decision. Thank you Aahvan!
