This was one of my best trekking experience thanks to the crazy mountaineers team for providing with such hospitality. I did Har Ki Dun trek and all the arrangements were great. I was able to experience the raw nature which I could not do in the city life. Looking forward to explore more with you guys!!

The best trekking experience I ever had in my life. The views were astonishing and the weather was great. The last and the final summit climb was the highlight of the entire trek. I thank "THE CRAZY MOUNTAINEERS" for providing an excellent food and stay one could ever give and making my Kedarkantha summit dream happen.
