    My husband and I just completed our private buran ghati pass trek. I can’t begin to tell you how terrific Mahendar is. He’s a great person and an extremely organized individual. He has great knowledge of lofty Himalayan peaks. We not only had fun but he educated us and fed us extremely well! All of the food prepared and cooked tasted great and the equipment was excellent. We will certainly be repeat trekkers on future hiking trips. Thank you very much.” Himalayan hikers best organization
