What our explorers are saying

“Fantastic!”

“We had the best time ever. Those guys are pros. I recommend India Travelz with no hesitation whatsoever. First class in service, personal attention, knowledge and organization.  

We could see the Rhododendrons in full bloom and that was something! Late April is the best time by the way:) Goechala is abounding in moments of pure joy with its majestic views of snowcapped peaks and the Samiti Lake. Thanks guys!"

Kathy Robinson

“The Goecha La Trek”

“was very much surprised to see the approach towards trekking as well as the ecological balance.

India Travelz kept the group size remarkably small-  just 10 people!  It was intimate and we had plenty of flexibility. Each one was equally supported by the team and the whole trek felt like it was a friends reunion."
