We just got back from the Brahmatal trek with the Himalayan Climbers and to be honest it was one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had . They provided us with the most authentic camping experience. The camps were set up separate from all the other companies that provide the trek. This made our campsite to be more noise free and serene. Their location choices for setting up camps made the trip worth all it was. The trek Guide and leader Mahipat Singh was a very friendly and adaptable person who was very knowledgeable indeed. His past experiences were really amazing and the way he narrated them to us was the best. Himalayan Climbers provide the seven of us with alot of flexibility as we could decide our pace of walking by ourselves. Their ability to take up challenges is also commendable as they always give you more than what’s on the actual itinerary. Ppl who look to go on treks for the real peace and beauty must really travel with Himalayan Climbers as they are according to me the best!.
The few main key points for our trip that made it one to savour for a lifetime were
– the food ( totally hot and tasty at all times)(p.s youll be shocked to see what you get on the most remote terrains of India . Hats off to Himalayan Climbers for that)
-the staff ( Mahipat singh and his crew were the best camping crew we could ask for they really guided us well and to be honest they let us be who we were even on the mountains unlike other organizations who would just demand discipline for the sake of it and impose on others.) (P.s Himalayan Climbers really want to fulfill the expectations of their clients and in order to achieve that they do let their clients be who they are and not boss over them unlike other organizations I’ve heard about.)all in all they all were down to earth
-the equipment ( all equipments used by team were top quality ranging from the tents to the sleeping bags to the staff who were also very well equipped themselves.).
-the stay provided for the first and last days was also up to the mark especially given the huge amount of rush during that period.
Thank you Himalayan Climbers for a truly unforgettable experience!

June 28, 2018
