  1. Khuku singh

    “I had never been to Himalayas and Kedar Dome Expedition was my first trekking experience. I did not know much about the places and what things to carry, but thanks to Mr Kuldeep who helped a lot. It was once in a lifetime experience, the steep climb was very hard for me but the support and motivation by our trek leader “Mahendra” was enough to boost my confidence. When I reached the summit I felt out of this world and words are less to explain them! The towering mountains looked extremely captivating and the peaceful aura of this place is unforgettable. Thanks to all the mates and team members for being so kind and helpful.”
