The human touches there were excellent all throughout the trek. The equipment given was for our use in the trek was of the highest quality.

A special mention about our guide Mr. Ravinder Kumar, needs to be made, for his knowledge & warmth – as also the food that was served which was filling tasty and bringing hot, Cheese. ”

Dr. Mr. G. Bidikar, and Dr. Mrs. U. Bidikar – NEW DELHI – 26th June – 29th June 2012

 

Staffs were excellent, very caring and competent. Ravinder, the guide was very knowledgeable and took care of us whole time. The food was amazing, how the cook managed to produce so much excellent food in a tent is a mystery. Love ate by candle- light with a table cloth, all very romantic. Trekking: the setting for the camp, surrounded by mountains was exactly what we hoped for, and trek was challenging but we got lot of help in the more difficult places”

Mr U. Winterstein, London, ENGLAND, 24 May – 26 May 2012

 

a) Equipments: “All the equipments which was required for trekking was extremely good. It was very good experience after attending the trekking 1st time, didn’t face any problem for staying in tent.

b) Service: One time we didn’t felt that we pass 3 days 2 nights with new persons. All staff behaved and put the service like 5 star hotels. Fooding and support during the entire trekking was superb.

Thanks for the entire team and organizer for such cooperation and shall plan next trekking very soon”.

Accommodation: “Sleeping bags were very high quality and tents were spacious. Shower facilities provided at end of trek were an added bonus. Food: Surpassed all expectations. We were fed huge portions and there were always enough snacks to get us up the last few hundred meters. Service: Everyone was very welcoming and helpful, always ready to answer our questions. The friendly campfires at night topped off the experience. Trek: The Beas Kund trek was exactly what we were looking for. The scenery was breathtaking and our guide Ravinder was always ready to accommodate our request and take us up to 4000m. Overall: the fantastic few days in the beautiful part of the country made better by booking our trek with Potala Adventurers Company. We would definitely recommend Potala Adventurers to our friends! ”.

Mr. Prem Singh,

“Thanks for organizing the trek - from our perspective it was very enjoyable and met our objective of a light and comfortable trek. I would definitely like to recommend your name to anyone going for a trek starting from Manali and especially highlight the flexibility you offered in organizing a cost effective trek for only two people, the good and hot food and courteous and helpful staff. We are currently planning another trek (after 1-2 months), may be to Hamta pass, with a group of 2-4 people, will be in touch with you for the same. Once again thanks very much for a memorable experience”. Regards,

"We greatly enjoyed the service of Potala Adventures for the trek to Beas Kund. It was a very well organized trek, and the staff that accompanied us was very gorgeous, experienced and pleasant. All in all, it was great experience, highly recommended! "

Mr  Neeraj and Miss Sumanda , June 2009


"I am kind of person with a thirst for adventure, and all the adventurous out there. Potala Adventurers should be the first choice. I have never been on a trek before and the experience was outstanding.

The service... Too good

The food... Awesome

The guide... Very friendly

Words cannot express my experience on this trek to Beas Kund organized by Potala Adventurers. I would choose Potala for very next trek. I would happily suggest the name of Potala Adventurers for all those who have a taste for adventure. Tenzin Ningbo- you rock man ".
Mr Kakinada. Andhra Pradesh. October 2009.


"My recent trip dt 16-19 Oct. to Beas Kund has surpassed all my ideas and expectations of a trek. Adventure should be given first name - Tenzin. I am glad i found the right man for the job, awesome adventure, and incredible experience. Ask the Kirlog I put at 4000mtrs above MSL. It might kill you. Veerender our guide is VEER (former SASE). He is wasting his time. He should be working with National Geographic, for his capability. I won’t call a 5 star intercontinental only because there wasn’t a sauce made the soup bowl. Way 2 tease the appetite Sheru Bhai, Loved the experience.

I recommend everyone what i had to feel and love life. Thanks ".

Dr. Solomon S.  October 2009.
