Completed Successfully a 9 day/8-night Bali Pass trek with North Himalayan Holidays. The trek was very well organized with a highly competent guide, an excellent cook & Porters Specially the Nepalis porters. Good safe drivers were provided and safety and sanitation on the trek were taken seriously At 65 I found the trek challenging at times but at no time was there any pressure and we could set our own comfortable pace. The weather was perfect and the scenery spectacular. Tis was my 3rd Trek with NHH did before Kalindi pass and Auden’s col trek very well organizer as per your requirement’s, they make sure all your needs are catered to.

Kalindi Khal Pass trek is considered to be one of the most difficult and dangerous treks, which requires a lot of skilled trek leaders, a perfect guide and a strong team of porters. I choose North Himalayan Holidays for Kalindi pass and they proved they are a perfect team. Highly skilled trek Guides & professional skiers, gave us details on how to walk on slippery ice. Professionally trained and certified with wilderness medication programs always ready to take your care in any condition and traveller themselves. One will enjoy their Trekking agency, their travel stories and their way of leading a trek. Cheers to team NHH.
