Phurba and pony man Disu. We trekked in 1999 from Darcha to Lamayuru (with Potala Adventurers) and now in 2016 with our 3
children, aged 7,11 and 13. We enjoyed trekking in Zanskar/Ladakh from Kelang Sarai to Photoksar. Sherab and the team took
great care of the children and although at time there were chanllenges for the children.
They had a wonderful experience. Many thanks !."

experience. I was expecting to find it a lot harder but our expert guide helped us every inch of the way !. I was amazed at
the incredible skills of our cook Ravi and his helper Phurba, who cooked delicious food on a kerosene stove. They even made
a few cakes !! Our horseman Dis was superb at getting the horses to behave. He was also very strong and fast, so even though
he left after us he always beat us to camp, and when we arrived the tents were already up. The views were also breath taking
Mr Owen - aged 13 - AUSTRALIA - 26th Sept 2016

"Thanks Potala Adventure team for organizing a fantastic cycling expedition to the Manali - Naggar - Kullu - Solang valley
for 3 days in December 2015. Our cycling Guide was very supportive and responsible person. He was always on place with
good attitude and having a good knowledge about cycling. We did off - road biking too. It was a great experience and I truly
appreciate it. This was my 3rd trip with Potala Adventurers after Bhrigu Lake and Kalihani Pass trek and I wish more to come.
Thanks and regards"
Mr Ashish and Mr Akash - 28 Dec. 2015
"Thanks Prem and the Potala Adventure
team for organizing a fantastic trekking expedition to the summit of Stok Kangri in August this year over a 10 days period.
For our team of 3 from Australia
(Ken, Scott and Michael) we encountered near perfect weather and thorough acclimatization through the Ladakh valley which
resulted in a successful summit of Stok Kangri. We especially give thanks to our main guide Sherab, our climbing guide Raina,
our cook and assistant, the horseman and of course 7 hardworking horses who carried all of the expedition gear and we all
had a truly wonderful and exciting time trekking throughout the 10 days period.
Our main guide Sherab had excellent
knowledge on all aspects of the region as well as logistics for our team and the climbing guide was also excellent in both
knowledge and skill and safety aspects higher up the mountain when we needed it both. Our trek was relaxed and most often
humorous and testimony to how we all got on so well as a team.
Our main cook and assistant actually
knew a Nepali guide (Netra) we had on a recent trip to Nepal who was our guide on Annapurna circuit a year earlier so in an
instance we had a rapport straight away with both of them and shared many jokes together.
The cook produced the most amazing
meals each day with great presentation throughout the 10 day period and with such a great variety that we ate different dishes
most days, in fact there was so much food that we quite often couldn't finish on some days. We started each day (on time)
with warm washing water and breakfast and the routine was excellent and prepared us well for each day of trekking. Lunches
were in the form of sandwiches, fruits, fruit juice and a chocolate bar or sweet on most days in a tight proof container which
didn't spoil the meal - again excellent idea.
A special mention to the horseman
(and his team of horses) who prepared his horses each day with no problem and we were amazed how much each morning he had
to go and round up the horses who were away from the camps in surrounding valleys etc so to him a job well done.
At all times during the trek we
felt safe and had excellent equipment and nothing was a problem for your team, we had a great time and everything was well
planned and logistically well organized professionally throughout the trek, and because of this we have walked away with lifelong
memories and friends from this trip to the summit of Stok Kangri.
Prem and team well done on a fantastic
job and we would not hesitate to recommend Potala Adventures to anyone thinking of trekking in India - we had an amazing experience!!
Mr Ken Harrison and group- BRISBANE - AUSTRALIA - 12 October 2015
a great 3 days trekking adventures with good quality camping equipment, great food and lots of fun with horses. Nice family
adventure! After we really had an interesting time. Once we stayed with nomads since the home stay was already closed, this
was really interesting experience. Sure, the hotel in Leh was great. We enjoyed the lake and the staying at the small village,
we got a lot of insight into local like, i.e. animal, farming with sheep, donkeys etc. It was a good trip with a lot of insights
into local life which was an enriching experience. Thanks so much for organizing. All the best”

“Good support on all various aspects. 4 season tent to keep me warm
all night. Provide sleeping bag and thick mattress; provide rope carabiner for Umasi La glacier travel. Morning bed tea and
hot water for washing. Gas stove are in good condition. Its play an important role to prepare a hot meal after a long trek.
Porters are helpful for helping me to some obstacle on river crossing, glacier crossing. Folding chair, toilet paper, pass
message to my family during trek where std is not available. Driver Raj is very experienced and knowledgable on the Manali
- Paddar valley. To make us a safe trip. Arranged bus ticket from Delhi to Manali. I have to carry only my day bag during

“Mission accomplished. The first two days
of trekking we did with Tenzing Gomber. The trek was very nice and very good to acclimatize. The trek the guide and others
went with the carrier for back and passed us to set up camp. In the trek there was a mountain Yalung Nong 6080m, which was
very good for acclimatization and with beautiful views. The 2 chefs did a good job on the whole tour. For example, after reaching
the mountain, we had prepared tea with milk that made us recover quite well. The muleteer also did a good job. We are very
happy with the team, as for the hotel in Leh, phenomenal."

Mr Krutik and group – RAJKOT –
(GUJARAT) – 17 June 2015
What an incredible and unforgettable trekking experience my mom and I had this trip! From the overnight camping locations
to the personalized trekking pace to the gourmet camping meals, we could not have asked for any better.
Guide is so knowledgeable about the area. The vegetation, the culture, you
name it and explanations from Guide. Guide did a fantastic job managing both our trekking levels, taking me on more challenging
treks some of the days and making sure to watch out for both of us while trekking together.
The horseman always chose phenomenal locations, pristine, isolated and with
unbeatable views! And the cooks surprised us every day with delicious meals that we never would have imagined eating in the
Himalayas at 3500m. While trekking I became sick and all of the staff was offering their help or suggestions to get me better
– all it took a bit of extra trekking! I always felt extremely well taken care of, and I will definitely recommend Potala
to anyone I know coming to India to trek. The staff was infinitely flexible and understanding of my mom and my funny requests
– like to have tea with breakfast. "
part of our 4 days trek was well managed by our guide and he took great care of me, a 60 year old and my daughter 22, making
sure I make it up some challenging climbs and my daughter got more challenge. I probably gain weight on this trek from the
amazing meals cooked for us also. We did the Deo Tibba / Hamta circuit which was amazingly beautiful – everything from
villages to forests to waterfalls, to high snow-capped peaks. The camping views and locations were private, spectacular settings.
We highly recommend Potala Adventures and their guides for taking care of all
our trip needs in the most professional and personal way. Thank you for a most memorable trek.
We will definitely come back to trek with Potala again. "

hat leider nicht geklappt, da ich krank wurde, aber Prems Familie hat sich toll um mich gekuemmert. Nachdem ich wieder fit
war, hat Prem mich dafuer auf einige wunderbare Tagesausfluege mitgenommen. Ich habe meine Zeit hier sehr genossen und hoffe
