Owner description: Aquaterra Adventures is the only Indian company to be rated twice in a row as best adventure travel outfitters on Earth, in a global survey by National Geographic Society, 2008 & 2009. We have been running trips and tours for the discerning traveller throughout the Indian Himalayas since 1995, yet the experience of our travel personnel dates well beyond that, to years of leading trips throughout the Indian Himalayan belt. We believe that an adventure travel outfit is only as good as its guides. Good equipment, food and guides is what makes an outdoor trip an experience to savour.

My 10 year old son and husband have been trekking with Aquaterra for years - from treacherous Stok Kangri to freezing Chadar to picturesque Har ki Dun and now the rolling meadows of the Dayara Bugyal in Uttarakhand - Aquaterra does it with care and the confidence only experience can bring.

Dayara is a perfect trek (hike rather) for the trekking novice (aka me) to find their feet and test if tent living, au naturel loo breaks and succumbing to the vagaries of nature is your thing. The pouring rain meant hours in our tents but with stunning views to wake up to, I'm starting to get what the trekkies marvel at.

Aquaterra IS its people and Jeetu, Rana and the rest of Vaibhav Kala's very able team are what make this adventure company stand apart.

My only grouse is the food - too much, too fancy!

Dear Aneesha

Thank you for your review of your trek with Aquaterra Adventures. Am glad you enjoyed the trek, the leadership, the views and the team that set it up for you.

We take your grouse as a compliment, as for most trekkers the meals are another great reason to choose Aquaterra Adventures.

We look forward to taking you further on your trekking journey!

Six of us spent this last weekend at Camp Aquaterra and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent hospitality and organization through all the planning, as well as on the trip. Aryaman, Ashima and the accounts team were really helpful in answering the million questions we had and could not have made it any easier for us to plan. A big shout out to Pankaj sir, Champ and Sanjay sir for all their warmth and support during our stay and for going all out to make sure we were comfortable and had a blast at the same time. All the Aquaterra staff on camp were super friendly and really gave out vibes of one big family, of which we also felt a part in the 3 days that we were there. The food, cleanliness, and amenities more than exceeded our expectations and all I can say is that we will definitely be back very soon on another trip organized by Aquaterra.

Aquaterra hosted our ascent of Pangarchulla in the spring of 2013 (my review says 2016 because that is as far back as TripAdvisor would let me go). I am now long overdue for a return engagement. In any event, I am leaving this belated review because this company and its tremendous staff are well deserving of a superb review. They handled our train transportation to/from Delhi to Haridwar, truck transportation between Haridwar and Joshimath, accommodation in Joshimath and at the Auli Resort (the latter while acclimatizing to the altitude) and an amazing trek to the peak of Pangarchulla. Without exception, Aquaterra's staff were friendly, hard working and always mindful of our safety. If you book any trek, climb or rafting adventure with this outfit, you will not be disappointed. Top notch service for your bucket list adventure.
