Belligundi - A Perfect Skip to the boring routine. Its been an amazing experience being to Belligundi for a short trip of 2 days. The awesomeness started with the hospitality we received at Kattinkaru and the well maintained homestay that was provided. Kattinkaru being in the thick of Malnad provides the much needed freshness and serenity for minds that need a break from the city rush. The Malnad cuisines which were served were nothing less than the best I ever had. Since we had been to Belligundi in the dry season of March, we planned to get beneath the waterfalls. The deciduous forests, the thick shrubs and the trail of the water flow which you get ever now and then add to the adventure of the trek. This was the longest trail-less stretch which I had ever done before and it was worth every penny. Adventure, Scenery, Peace, Wild everything you want from a forest trek, you get here. The first sight of the waterfall will give your breath a skip and being able to stand under the waterfall for a refreshing bath is the best part. An add on to all the above is that, Belligundi is still not much commercialised and you hardly find any other trekking troops around you which provides you the much needed privacy. The nature is in its purest form and no signs of any pollution you find around, the same might change after couple of years once it might get commercialised. Sooner the visit, the better it is !! Enjoyed it thoroughly.. Thanks for all the hospitality we received from Summiters.. Cheers..!!

Buran Ghati Pass Trek
Would like to thank you Vishwanath of Summiters for excellent organisation of trek.This being my first trek, it was an awesome experience with the team of trekkers and people who helped us for making it happen. To start with the stay in the village was a very pleasant experience which showed how people live happily with minimal things in life, people are aware of outer world they are connected with TV, mobile and Internet. Second and third day was small trek watching mountains and valleys, and experiencing the extremely cold weather. Trek to Chandra nahan lakes 1, 2 3 and 4 was the best scenic place with crystal clear water, clear sky,awesome mountain. the nature is impeccably clean, no pollution of any sort, fourth day climbing Buran ghati Pass was exciting with walking over big stones, sand rubble with gravel stones, and reaching the top of mountain, most difficult part of the trek was climbing down which needs more concentration and energy, it was an excellent team with whom i trekked, and i have to tell this is my best holiday ever.

Vellarimala - Vavulmala
Totally off beat, untrodden wherein we had to make our path in the thick vegetation with a machete, very arduous trek but exciting, the food provided was basic, it was ultimate –Tapioca and chilled freshly made buttermilk from streams flowing topped it all..!
Great sunset.! Mesmerazing views of Masthakapara, Chembrapeak and Vavulmala , this trek was one of the best western trek I had done so far, kudos to Vishwanath….!!!

Belligundi Waterfalls Trek
This was my second trek with Summiters.Last year I went to Kudremukh and this time to Bellegundi Waterfalls.Our guide Mr Vishwanath was very helpful and it a memorable experience altogether.
In previous trek to Kudremukh I suffered from sprained knee joint while returning Vishwanath accompanied me till the last step though it was dark, was very courageous and was always motivating . It was only because of him I completed the trek successfully.
I look forward to complete more treks in the coming years and would always like the Summiters group to guide me and my fellow friends.

Kagbhushandi Tal Trek
Kagbhushandi Tal is a long and Strenuous trek with little material available about it to read. Entire trek takes one through alpine meadows, countless boulders, snow fields and involves ascending to a altitude over 15,000ft and plunging into deep valleys. All in all not a trek for beginners, but one that can be enjoyed thoroughly by experienced trekkers backed by a team none other than Summiters..!

It was after sighting South face of Mount Kailash and taking dip in Mansarovar I felt that my wish of lifetime had come true and had made a wise decision to go with Summiters, though the trip was rescheduled due to permits issues. I was determined and had Confidence on Summiters who gave me genuine relpy all times and motivation. Planning a trip is hassle free with them, for those looking for any trip in Himalayas…!

One of my friends said, "We'll recommend these guys to juniors too.. Its been so smooth till now And we get rafting too". We had just reached Lohajung, the base camp for our trek after a brief stay at Nainital (which was included in the part of the trek taken care of by the Summiters group). The rest of the trip, the main trek itself, definitely bore testimonial to what the friend said.
Organizing a trek of this magnitude for a group of eighteen people, primarily composed of first timers and inexperienced folks was no child's play. We were well informed of every requirement for the trek and given a brief yet sufficient picture of what awaited us. The guides stayed by us throughout the journey, at every camping spot and the walks between the spots. A guide always accompanied the procession at both head and tail, irrespective how far aback the last person was left out. At the campsites we were provided with meals and food regularly . In fact, on one of the days, soup was delivered individually at every tent when the when the extreme downpour outside prevented us from leaving our tents. By the end of the day, the guides assured us that we could wake them up in the middle of the night if at all there was anything that we needed. On the final day, when the walk was most difficult, they stood by motivating us all along even getting us to say our prayers.
Overall, the experience was doubtlessly one of the best that i have had. But truth be told, it would not have been possible if not for the assistance provided by the Summiters group. I, on behalf of every trekker would sincerely thank the guides and the organizers for making the trip memorable for all the right reasons. Walking on snow seemed like nothing i had done before, but it was definitely a lot easier than it should have been because of the people who accompanied us.
