Have done treks with Adventure Trips India & Kundan, to Tapovan, Kuari Pass and Tungnath we would strongly recommend him to anyone wanting to organize a trek in the Himalayas. He has a great team and is a very good organizer. His knowledge of the areas trekked, his quiet confidence that keeps you reassured and his ability to adjust to the capacity of the group are qualities that make him the person we keep coming back to all our treks..
