Did my first properly planned trek with HT. Had an amazing experience throughout. Very reasonably prized package, brilliant guides, excellent food. Overall a very good experience!! Would love to do more treks with them in future!

We were a group of 3 friends and booked a trek to Dodital with Kedartal with North Himalayan Holidays, it was an amazing experience. Even though it was our first trek to the Garhwal Himalayas and Kedartal being a difficult terrain trek we were guided excellently by the North Himalayan Holidays team. They served us nutritious food, took complete care of our safety and health and gave us the right advice to overcome AMS. Eagerly awaiting our next trek with them.
