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.

My Yatra to Holy Kailash was Satisfactory. Mr.Vishwanath escorting group , had shown a lot of maturity and skill in handling the group and crisis management, especially with many of the senior citizens accompanying. He needs all the encouragement and I am sure he is a great asset in all where tour runs for several days in an unfriendly environment .He is very polite responsive and helpful to the needs of tourists whose responsibility he took in is very appreciating . I immensely thank him once again.

Roopkund Trek May 2014
The trek to Roopkund has been one of the highlights of my life. The multi-terrain trail which offered spectacular breathtaking views, the pure air and clean water is something you get only in the Himalayas. A great many thanks to Summiters for ensuring that everything went as planned and for keeping the group size small and comfortable. It was refreshing to be with a group which made it so soothingly personal and flexible to our individual needs. I would recommend Summiters to anyone who wants to add a slice of nature into their lives.

In June 2013 – We planned to do something interesting in Himachal Pradesh. “Pin Parvati” seemed like a good challenge. Having zeroed in on the objective the next step was to find someone who could assist in organizing this trek. That choice was easy – leave it to Vishwanath at Summiters who had assisted us on the EBC trek in 2011. We are now back in Mumbai after becoming the first team to make the pass crossing in 2013!!! This is largely due to the fantastic support team provided through Summiters. Route finding is crucial for this trek (particularly early in the season when there is so much of snow) and we had the guide and mate who had between them done the crossing more than 10 times. Thanks once again to Vishwanath and Sathya for the guidance and support in organizing this unforgettable trek.

Kudremukh Trans Trek
Had a great time with Summiters exploring the Kudremukh hill ranges as we climbed up Hiremaleguppi and then descended down the valley. One of the highlights of the trek was the amazing views of Kudremukh peak, with the rolling grass lands and shola forest around it. Also, the view of the twin peaks (Hiremaleguppi and Thirumaleguppi) is only available on this trans-western ghats trek. I also loved the green grass lands en route Hiremaleguppi, with a golden hue as the summer is approaching.
All permissions, travel, food and accomodation issues were very well taken care by Vishwa and team to ensure that we all had a great time! This is already my 3rd trek with Summiters and I would love to go with them again.

Kudremukh Trans Trek
Kudremukh Trans trek was very good; it had variants of climbing up a peak and descend down to a different district. Challenges of trekking with no definite path/trail for a good part of the trek and exploring it all the way added to delight of a trekker. It was very well organized and executed. Over all a great trek after a very long time.

It is around 8 am and I am on the banks of Deban river and my hands are frozen stiff. I am thankful for the appropriate gift on my birthday. It has added to the general warm feeling that have had for the past few days on this trek. I think it may kindle my budding interest in nature and writing. I thank you for organizing such a trek to such a heavenly place.
The sight of small Hollock Gibbon staring at me till its curiosity is out and hops away is unforgettable..!.Even the less glamorous sights of red fungi on the fallen tree and sight of shimmering leaves in morning sun. How can I forget the flash of red on a tree and I think Instinctively a ‘male minivet ’.This has been a incredible excursion. Thank you…!!

Well coordinated, timely, cordial and very friendly in-town and on-field support. It is important to understand the abilities and exposure to new climbers, which Summiters do so very well. Great food, entirely safe, flexible with change in plans, supportive. All this and more made it a beautiful and memorable 7-day trip.
Thank you, Summiters!
