With the spirit of innovation, personalized services, the invaluable experience of our "Professionals" & the strong support of our sister companies, we make each venture of yours ... an unforgettable experience ..!



All our trips are managed by a team of our professionally trained guides, cooks & sardars. Porters or pack animals carry all food, camping & kitchen gear including your personal baggage. All you need to carry in your day pack are your jacket, water bottle, camera & other small items you may need on trail. All members walk on their own pace with the "lead" & "sweep" porters providing support throughout. Food on all trips is plentiful, healthy, wholesome & varied prepared by experienced cooks trained in kitchen & table hygiene. Quality tents & foam mattresses we provide are extra spacious & comfortable. Each day's program is designed to allow all members enough time for sightseeing, photography & exploration.



The day begins with a cup of tea or coffee in your tent at around 5AM, followed by a full breakfast…, which includes cereal, milk, eggs, bread, paratha (chapati), jam, honey, corn flakes … etc. Walking begins at around 6-7 AM. We stop for lunch around noon. Lunch usually includes crackers, cheese, nuts, fruit, juice, fish, salad, bread, tea and coffee … etc, however, if the remaining trek is shorter and time permits, our cooks always try to supplement your cold lunch with at least one or two main courses of hot lunch. We normally arrive at our campsite between 2:00 p.m. and 3: pm (unless the walk is too long). You are served with tea on your arrival. The staff always arrive before you at the campsite to pitch your tents. Dinner is served around 7 p.m. and includes soup, followed by two to three main courses of stews, rice, lentils, vegetables, chicken or mutton and chapattis. There is always a desert (custard, pudding, kheer, halwa or sheer khorma) at the end of dinners which is served with coffee or black or green tea. Meals are served in rotation with a blend of local and international cuisines to maintain variety. Fresh vegetables are served for as long as it is possible on the trek. Please inform us about any dietary concerns that you may have.  We will be more than glad to fulfill your request. All our cooks and support staff are thoroughly trained in kitchen and table hygiene & observe strict hygienic code. You may give your personal water bottles to our kitchen staff every night & they’ll fill them up with boiling water … which will not only warm you up in your sleeping bag for a sound sleep but also provide you with safe boiled drinking water for the following day’s  walk.
