Good quality and variety of food. Good walking pace for group.
Great leader. Enthusiastic, efficient and knowledgeable. Very personable.
Fairly remote but still passed through local villages, got invited into houses on several occasions for a cup of tea.

Thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. Overwhelmed by the level of support from the trek team and tour leader. As a local leader Kunsang was excellent with local knowledge as well as an excellent awareness of the needs of the group. He was particularly supportive where members of the group had off days. The trek crew were very well organised and worked really well as a team - they couldn't do enough for us as guests.
Loved the mix of seeing India's culture, village life as well as the spectacular Himalayan scenery.

As usual we are not disappointed. KE are second to none. Special thanks to Lucy for helping us choose this holiday.
A beautiful, thrilling trek. Perhaps the most leisurely we have ever done.We never felt under any pressure and there was always plenty of time to take photos and take in the amazing views.The trails were particularly beautiful but the icing on the cake was the amazing airy traverse on the last day. The weather was great too! The first time we have managed to wash clothes and get them dry! Also to have a dry trek towel was luxury in the extreme.Raj Kumar and assistant cook Sanchaman Rai must be the best cook in the world. Many and varied delicious dishes appeared each day. The birthday cakes were incredible.The tents are spacious and good quality. The Florence Inn is clean and comfortable and the food is excellent
I cannot praise Kunzang Sherpa enough. He was a delight. He is extremely well educated, his English is impeccable, he is totally unflappable.He loves his country and is very knowledgeable about all aspects, environment, politics,cultural variations etc. I have never learned so much about India as I did in this trek. Perhaps I was fortunate that being at the back most of the time we were able to ask Kunzang and Palzor questions. There was a great deal of interaction with local villagers on this trek and Kunzang and Palzor were invaluable for translation. It appears that not many white trekkers pass this way, which wa s refreshing, we were as much a source of fascination for the locals as they were for us! Kunzang is a star and we would love to trek with him again.
I enjoyed the beautiful trails and landscape, the delicious food, the enthusiastic trek crew, our charismatic leader, Kunzang, the interaction with local people en route, the cultural experiences,and particularly the Arti ceremony in Haridwar, that will stay with me all my life;magical. The long drives on the hairy roads were thrilling too.
We have always used KE and always will. Good value for money!

The camping experience and support crew ensured that this trek was a great success. Their speed, efficiency was excellent. Mark (our leader) was very experienced, he had great rapport with the support team, and his understanding of the language and culture is a great asset.

A very enjoyable trip, espeically the Kauri Pass and the spectacular walk out on the last day. It's my 26th trek with KE since I started travelling with you in 1985.

Most enjoyed - Kuari pass and final day along balcony path - superb views.
Better than expectations, overall service better than previous treks we have done with other operators.
