We have done Kedarkantha, Yamunotri, Gaumukh and Dodital with the team and will recommend and travel with Himalayan Hikers in future as well. I am glad that I travelled with the team to the most amazing places in Himalayas and the services and efficiency of the staff made the experience even more awesome. All the treks were well organized and the staff is efficient in whatever job they handle. Kuldeep our team leader is very efficient and always helpful and well informed about the area and its culture. 

The food was great the cook work very hard to prepare on time.

1. We are so glad we did it and want to thank Kuldeep and staff for their excellent service and care.

MONIKA SAH


Tanisha Garg - This was my first trekking experience with Himalayan Hikers. They are just awesome guys. Took care of small everything. Worth the price they charge you. I went to Kedarkantha Trek for 6 days and the quality of service is excellent. Food, lodging was good. Tough guides can piss you off sometimes.


Nik Nikk - After doing a lot research online I decided to book my first ever trek with Himalayan Hikers and was part of their 29th July Hampta Pass Trek and I honestly consider myself very lucky that I decided to go with Himalayan Hikers and not with anyone else. Right from day 01 when we arrived in Manali they took care of us like a family member. They have the best group of team members who are always there for you no matter what. They have an answer to each and every question you have in your mind. I was surprised to see the professionalism that every Himalayan Hikers staff displayed during the trek


Channing Kaiser - My study abroad program used Himalayan Hikers back in 2013, and they were amazing. They were well-versed on the area, attentive and helpful to all participants, and really fun, too. They 100% enhanced our hiking experience. Great logistics, wonderful food, and knowledgeable, caring guides. We couldn't have asked for more.


preeti luthra - Thank you very much for organizing our trek. All of us had a wonderful time and it was an excellent experience. Though we didn't reach Baradsar Lake, the route was beautiful, with great views of the mountains. Your team did a fine job of making us comfortable on the trek. In particular, Surender, and vikram, team was a very attentive and supportive guide. We were all impressed with his ability to lead the trek and ensure our comfort and security.


Nitesh kumar - One of the best adventures trek for trekking enthusiast if you do it in winter. Make sure weather is not cloudy otherwise you may miss some beautiful peaks


Mukesh Kumar - For treking in uttarakhand, you should go to them. Every aspect regarding the safety is been taken care and the raft guides are very good. Simply you will enjoy their services from beginning to end


ekta sharma - For treking in uttarakhand, you should go to them. Every aspect regarding the safety is been taken care and the raft guides are very good. Simply you will enjoy their services from beginning to end.


Garry Arora - I had till now three treks with them and they are really great at what they do. Keep up the good work Guyz Himalayan Hikers


 

 

 

 

Key Points about Kedarkantha trek

Level: Moderate (so first timers trekkers good this trek)

· Proper conditioning & training of body required

· Need proper gear & clothing for sub-zero temperatures?

· Shoes are the single most important equipment

· High Altitude requires proper acclimatization base sankri

· Winter & Post monsoon or pre-monsoon is the best time. During rains the region is prone to landslides

· Phones don't work,, only BSNL

· Beautiful landscape so carry good photo gear & Extra betray backup (I couldn't carry my best equipment)
