Shubhangi Kadganche Manager, IOB Ladakh Jeep Safari 2013"It was an amazing, unforgettable experience. The hospitality you and your teammates had provided and the care you people had taken was exemplary.
You made our trip a family gathering. A service rendered by Hills & Trails is not only professional but made us feel special. The memories of picturesque terrain of Leh with kind hearted and humble people like you will linger in my mind forever. The organisation of tour made sure that each and every member of the team was given personal attention and all the needs were fulfilled professionally.
I highly recommend and wish success to the future endeavor of Hills & Trails."
Dr. Nitin Rao Gynecologist, Mumbai Kailas Manasarovar Yatra 2013"It is a trip beyond the horizon, a trip to the fringes of civilization.
People from HILLS & TRAILS puts everything in the right perspective, so that there are no unpleasant surprises for the traveler. Both the leader from HILLS & TRAILS and the local team go out of the way to take care of the physical and mental comforts, and primarily the safety of the group.
Overall, a very pleasant and satisfying journey. We came back with fond memories and many more friends and are looking forward to our next trip with 'Hills and Trails'"
Jayant Koppikar IBM, Pune Kailas Manasarovar Yatra 2013""Kailash Manasarovar yatra is by far one of the most ardent travel we did in our life. Terrains are hard and unforgiving. The entire yatra takes a toll on your physical, mental and emotional health. However, traveling with Hills n trails was a pleasure. At each juncture, leader from HILLS & TRAILS knew what exactly was the Plan-A action required or what Plan-B should be put into place should plan-A fail. Network they have built with Tibet and surrounding is amazing. While most big named travel companies were struggling, our group was ambling down the yatra comfortably and we could see it with our own eyes and experience from fellow passengers.
Overall just a fantastic trip. Given enough time and moolah,I would go with Doc one more time asap""
Vidya Vaidya Artist, Mumbai Kailas Manasarovar Yatra 2013"I joined the June 2013 Kailash Mansarovar Yatra organized by Hills & Trails.
It was a great success for me, because at every step of the way we were briefed very transparently and honestly, so there were no unpleasant surprises. And yes, there are tremendous possibilities for that on this Yatra! However these are not in the control of either the Indian or the Nepalese organizers.
Good and viable alternatives were promptly in place where things did not as per schedule – a hallmark of experience and care. HILLS & TRAIL's team from Nepal was par excellence; they were very hardworking and caring about our needs.
Considering that they take care of so many batches in a year they never faltered."
Gopalkrishnan C.P CFO, Aban Offshore, Chennai Kailas Manasarovar Yatra 2013"Traveling to Manasarovar was truly enriching. Doc was available at every step to lead and guide us and make us comfortable. His knowledge and insights made a lot of difference to the first timers like us. It is undoubtedly most memorable journey of my life."
Yashoda Dharkar Head NGO, Indore Kailas Manasarovar Yatra 2013"I was a member of the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra 2013 organized by Hills & Trails.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that the Yatra was very well organized and even where things did not go as planned, as is bound to happen some of the time, excellent alternatives were put in place.
Information dissemination was excellent and timely as a result there were no unpleasant surprises.
The entire team that accompanied us was extremely hard working, polite and helpful.
Come to think of it, we were a disparate group and yet there was no serious unpleasantness and I think the major share of the credit for that must go to the team leader."
Mrs. Sandhya Desai Principal, Watumull Institute of Electronic Engineering and Computer Technology, Mumbai Ladakh Jeep Safari 2013"It was just coincidence that we participated in Leh Ladakh Safari in July 2013. Looking back at the events of 2013, when we are entering a new year, the Leh Safari experience is so refreshing!
The terrain covered was excellent and the stay at all hotels was comfortable. The pace was perfect. Never felt time too less or too much relaxe(bored). The respect was given to old age and surely for club 60+ we felt the touch of caring people around us.
Doc, is an excellent photographer and he has given us CD of our 10 days journey of Leh. The CD is the nostalgia that will be with us for ever."
Mrs. Jaishree Sikka Professor, Indore Kailas Manasarovar Yatra 2013""My visit to Kailash and Mansarover was made a dream come true by Hills and Trails. We were informed well in advance about every minute detail of the journey, including border crossing, high altitude problems and about the culture and behavior of people there.The journey through out was very comfortable. Every day briefing before starting the journey prepared us for the day. We were served the best possible food, lots of varieties in breakfast, freshly cooked meals and delicious hot soups in dinner. It was wonderful to sit on the bank of Mansarover and eat watermelon ! The staff was well behaved and courteous. The stay arrangement were also good. Overall I give full credits to HILLS AND TRAILS for taking all the pains to make our yatra perfect. ""
Mr. Rajneesh Barve Everest Base Camp Trek 2008"I just wanted to thank you for taking me to Everest Base Camp. We had a great time & lots of unforgettable pleasant memories. Your Management is SUPERB!!! Your guidelines were so perfect that if one will follow them properly, he will never face any problem during any trek. Last but not least we always had tasty, hot & nutritious meals time to time. We were surprised to see two grandpas coming with us one 72 year old and the other 68 years old. I think they both could do this difficult trek only because of the personal attention you paid to all of us. Thank you once again for taking us to E.B.C. I request you to keep organizing such treks & we all will keep coming."
Nupur Kerala 2010"We travelled to kerala in last October and done bookings through Hills & Trails. The arrangements were good. The trip was well organized. The organisers not only done the bookings but in between during the trip were following up with us about the arrangements and shortfalls if any. We request Hills & Trails to start organizing tours across India. Organizers are reliable and worth recommending to families planning for their vacations."
