Dear Prem, Thank you so much for organising such fantastic trek  on Beas Kund. We had an amazing time. The views are certainly stunning + although the trek was slightly tough in places, the scenery around mad up for it. Our main guide Dharam was superb. He is very knowledgeable + very patient. We felt completely safe with him. He guided Lynne over all difficult stretches and never hurried us. He is good man. Our second guide Rajesh was also very patient + very attentive – again we felt very safe with him + it was good to have 2 guides. Our main cook Mani produced the most amazing meal + packed lunch. He was always smiling + delicious food was great welcome when we go back from the trek. All the porters were friendly helpful to. Many thanks for superb experience. We will certainly recommend Potala for trekking. Cheers. "
