I did chopta Chandrashila Trek in November end with Hike brothers. I was accompained by my wife. The reason I chosen hike brothers was that the pickup and drop point was in Delhi which I found safe as I was reluctant to use public transport in covid times. However, little did I know that the services provided by them will be beyond my expectations. I am mentioning them below: A. The tempo traveller was in best possible condition with well behaved driver. The interiors were very almost new and luxurious. B. The stay was very comfortable. We did not have to stay in tents. Proper rooms with quilts and pillows with attached washrooms were provided. (Please note it was not luxury rooms but basic amenities, which is still not so easily accessible at high altitudes. So hatsoff to the team) C. The meals were freshly cooked, and served hot at all times. Salad was also provided. Food was very basic (daal roti sabzi salad) but very tasty. We were surprised with yummy pakodas and tea in late evening when we’re enjoying bonfire. D. Availability of hot water was always there. E. Our trek guide (Omi bhaiya as we used to called him) was very nice and provided us with various equipments that made it easy to walk on ice and snow. We saw people slipping all the time as they were not wearing micro-spikes. He was well trained to handle such high altitude treks. F. The trek guide even helped me to reach the summit when I fall short of oxygen a few 100 meters before it. Inshort, it was a wonderful first time experience with Hike Brothers. I am definitely going to approach them for my next trek. Kudos to the team for their efforts and special thanks to Omi bhaiya and the cook for making the trip truly memorable in all aspects. Thanks Ashwani Arora

Trek arrangements were top notch – even the first time trekkers like me were able to climb the summit with a breeze, thanks to our trek leader and constant companion throughout the journey (Also, liked the fact trek leader was capturing memories from his DSLR) Everything was very well planned and executed – Food and snacks served were from naturally cultivated crops- very fresh! Hope to come back for another summit in another location! Cheers Hike brothers Thank YOU For the wonderful experience 🙂
