Manali: Beas Kund trek / 4 days
" I am kind of person with a thirst for adventure. And all the adventureous
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 can not express my experience on
this trek to Beas Kund organised 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 ".

Manali: Beas Kund trek / 4 days
" My recent trip dt 16-19 Oct. to Beas Kund has surpassed all my ideas and
expactations of a trek. Adventure should be given first name .. Tenzin. I am glad i found the right man for the job, awesome
adventure, 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 wont call a 5
star intercontinental only because there wasnt a sauce made the soup bowl. Way 2 tease the appetite Sheru Bhai. Loved
I recommend everyone what i had to feel
and love life. Thanks ".

about the Himalayas. He took care of us and cook was Chandan, who did very well. I enjoyed every meal.
I really can recommend Potala-Himalaya because they organise good trekking adventures for fair prices.

Circuit / 5 days trek
" When i first arrive in Manali, I knew i wanted to experiece a trek. The
only question was which company. It is so difficult to put trust into an agency and hope they will come up with the goods.
Potala delievered an excellent trek, Ningbo told us not to worry about the service provided and he was right. The service
was first class. Our guide, cook, porter and horseman did an excellent job at keeping us fed, happy and safe. We were given the
freedom to take different paths if we wanted, which meant we felt a good sense of control over our trek. The 4 campsite were
in beautiful locations and for 3 of those nights we were the only camp which made it feel authentic.
I would definately trek again with Potala because it was the first ever Himalayan experience for me and everything i could
have wished for and more.
Adam A. Birmingham . ENGLAND. 25th June 2009
/ 5 days trek
To Potala Adventurers
" For the first time person like one coming to the Himalayas.
With no apparent experience in high altitude trekking. My mind was little tensed, but once we arrived at Manali and met Mr.
Tenzin Ningbo and he detailed us about the trip and when we met our guide our worries began to slow down.
I must sincerely thank the whole crew and Potala Adventurers
for organising us such a beautiful trek. The whole crew was excellent.
The guide Mr. Tashi was superb. His care and his skills in the
snow and mountain was a pleasure to watch.
The cook Mr. Kishan was also helpful and caring, preparing delicious
food and watching us in each step.
The porter who gave us a good company and treated us like real
guests was also enjoyable.
In brief we had a beautiful experience and i have made up my
mind that I will be back for more in the Himalayas next time with Potala Adventurers

Dear Prem, " we're finally back to italy and could read just
now your emails first of all we would like to thank you for all the assistance for the trip. we loved very much the beautiful
places we had the opportunity to visit. we now have great memories of India and intense feelings of our vacation in that beautiful
country. we arrived two day earlier to leh because: in tzo kar we found rain and could not bike all the way from pang to tzo
kar lake but had to use jeeps instead so we gained time. also in tzo morini the wheather was still very cold and rainy and
could not spend the day exploring the region as scheduled. so that's why we arrived to leh two days in advance which we decided
to spend visiting nubra valley. as far as the organization of the trip , all went fine. we have a great time and thank
all of you for all the effort and support. Best regards ".

of service was impressive. They did everything they could to make us feel comfortable, and they kept the enthusiasm through
the hole trek. In particular we were impressed by the food that was served - some of the best we got in India :)Even though
it was the monsoon period, we had great weather, only raining once for a few hours. Because of the clear weather we were able
to enjoy the great landscapes surrounding us. After the trek KG took us

" Overall, the trek went very well, spectacular scenery, fascinating gompas, a look at rural life. Karma
cooked excellent food throughout, even when the supplies i.e. vegetable, ran low, as we were unable to buy supplies in Padum
( due to circumtances at Kargil ). He structured the trek, to avoid very long, difficult days, assisted with river crossing
and was very helpful. Vilati is an excellent and efficient pony man. He treated the animals well when unwell and particularly
impressed with getting over Shingo La so early in season (May). Also to Prem for assisting up until this stage over pass and
for cleaning up campsite it was very good to see this attitude to the environment 5 sacks of other begs as rubbish at Zanskar
Sumdo. Tsering did an excellent job thanks also for assistance with translating throughout .

"We did the beautiful and
very scenic trek from Darcha to Padum. It was not only good because of the scenery but especially of the good relationship
we had with our horseman and our guide who was on the same time an excellent. We had many various dishes from India, China
and local Zanskarian food. The whole trek was a big experience. Our guide gave us the posibility to get a deep look in the
daily life of the Zanskarian people. We can just thank our trekking team for those wonderful days and want to recommend them

for them to carry our backpacks. But they did a great job. Thanks, and it was worth to do this trek.
All the best. Tashi Delek.

Bonjour à tous,
Nous venons de faire un trekking formidable. Franchir des montagnes aux chemins tortueux, avec des montées vertigineuses
et des descentes insoupçonnables.
Mais après un effort très important, vous découvrirez, tel un joyau dans son écrin, le village de Malana. Merveille des merveilles, un voyage dans le temps, comme H. G. Wells aurait pu imaginer. Les guides
et cuisiniers tibétains sont très agréables, vivants et joyeux. Alors n’hésitez pas.
Un air pur, des hommes particuliers, une marche magnifique, juste cinq jours de merveilles et de pureté, le tout parsemé
Des sourires et de la verdure, des efforts et des récompenses. Si vous respectez ce que vous voyez alors quel plaisir
Ce trek vous est recommandé par nous et sans arrière pensée.

Manali Hamta pass
Trekking de 5 jours : Manali, Hamtagot Pass, rallier du Lahoul et retour à Manali. Prem et Lobsang comme guide
et porteur. Des paysages magnifiques malgré l’enclume dans la tête après le passage du col.
Prem et Lobsang nous ont permis de le passer malgré la grosse épaisseur de neige (on en avait jusqu’au nombril
à certains endroits…). Sans leur connaissance du milieu et leur expérience, nous n’aurions jamais trouvé l’itinéraire
que nous voulions faire sel.
Ils nous ont permis aussi des rencontres plus qu’agréables avec les habitants.
Certainement l’un de mes meilleurs souvenirs de l’Inde.
Ps : exiger des cours de cuisine de Lobsang.
De la part de cinq français embarqués sur la route de Malana en août 1998. Notre virée a traversé un pays sauvage et
pleins d’habitants montagnards très accueillants. Les sourires, les rencontres et la bonne spécialité locale nous ont
fait voyager dans une nature et une civilisation inoubliable. Je vous recommande cette route des alpages et du charras et
vous souhaite de vivre les mêmes aventures que nous – shanti, shanti !
L’arrivée à Manala et le reste aussi.
Vous découvrirez durant ce trek toute la puissance d’une nature sauvage et envoutante. Des paysages très différents
mais toujours merveilleux de beauté. Le guide est une excellent guide et son équipe très compétente et chaleureuse.
Bonne chance pour votre trek enchanté sur la route du charras.
Ce fut un très bon trek, avec des excellents guides, de la bonne bouffe, etc.etc….
Bref une chose à ne pas rater avec Potala Adventure !!!
Très belle ballade de trois jours au cœur de la montagne indienne.

non gâchée par le tourisme.

The Pin Parvati trek. 9 days of the most stunning scenery in this part of world. The scenery itself would have been enough
to make this journey of a lifetime but the experience was heightened by the company of our porters. They leds from Potala

Darcha Lamayuru Trek
"At first I had no intention
of using a trekking agency to backpack from Darcha to Lamayuru. 20 minutes in the Potala Adventurers office changed my mind.
They are by far the friendiest agency in Manali. Our on the trail they provide more of an experience then I could have hoped
for. Urgen and crew are an exceptional choice of the villagers you pass through, especially if you want a chilled pitcher
of Chang at the end of the day. All in all, highly recommended. The only choice if you ask me".

day trek with Tenzin. He had unlimited strenth to keep the motivation going. Especially on the high passes. We had tea

were needed. His cooking is very tasty and filling. Norbu was a great helper always working very hard and doing his best to
please everyone. He was also very friendly and bouncy. Top marks to a great helper he should go far. I dont really know anything
about horses but the horseman seemed to do their jobs well, although their singing needs improvement".

Darcha Padum Trek Zanskar
"I really do recommend the Darcha
Padum Trek provided by Potala Travels. We undertook this trek in August 97 ( 3 person ). In fact it is an extremly beautiful
7-9 days trek, depending on personal condition. I also strongly recommend Sonam Dawa as a Guide, who not only knows to take
care about the tourist, but also to deal with the horseman. So without any doubt I recommend to go on a " trip "
with Potala Adventurers, certainly also to any other location in Ladakh and Zanskar"
