I did some treks with HT including Brahmatal. Their arrangements, hospitality and guidance is good. Guides are friendly. Foods are good and hygienic in the time of trekking.
Thank you HT team and everyone involved for the amazing experience. The trip was timed properly and organised really well. Food and service were great. A very friendly trek group and a lot of good memories to start the new year with. 🙂

1. Our trek concluded yesterday. It was well organized. Mr Dev & his team did a splendid job of keeping the entire team well nourished and comfortable. They need to be complimented for their effort & concern.
2. The driver of the Tempo Traveller, Mr Harendra Singh Bisht, is a young & free spirited man who drives well. However, he may be advised to be a little patient and slow when driving.
3. Thanks for the excellent planning, coordination & execution.
