Aquaterra Adventures are beyond excellent in every way, and I strongly recommend them to anyone considering an action adventure in India. Their guides are excellent in every way, and organisation and equipment - top quality. We could not be happier.
We have just returned from trekking the Kuari Pass, a 6 day 6 night linear trek of 70km graded as Moderate (in parts challenging) which took us up to 3690m.
We were a large group of 22 trekkers- so we had 4 guides, 7 cooks and camp site helpers, 14 horsemen and 30 horses. It was perfection at every moment, Aquaterra made it work so well- and looking back I am not sure how they did it. To organise all the food, equipment- and more challenging- us all - was genius.
We have enjoyed the most amazing, breathtaking (in every way!), exhilarating and memorable week of our lives. Together with Aquaterra we have scaled heights, up rock slides, down shale slopes whilst meeting 1000 goats, bathed in icy waterfalls and challenged ourselves. We have seen another side to the absolute beauty of India, the Himalayan mountains, the sacred Nanda Devi, the snow topped mountains and high meadows - and just as important- the absolute beauty of everyone we met along our way, from school children, teachers, mothers to goat herders, horsemen and of course, of the Aquaterra team.
Rana excelled and impressed us all. He lead us confidently and superbly. Not one injury, no altitude sickness, and all with a smile and a jest but when needed a serious message which we understood immediately. With 22 Alpha males and females he was just superb. So much affection for him! His headstand at the top of the Kauri Pass will remain with me forever.
Aashima is an absolute star who managed to climb into all our hearts. To be greeted by her each morning was a pleasure. She is so strong, so intelligent, so much fun and with unlimited patience and energy. She helped us all up the mountains, taught us Bollywood dancing, compared our quiz, sang by the fires, and provided a strong and steady leadership.
We trekked through remote countryside, occasionally walking through small villages, apparently less than 100 people a year take on this trek in the direction from Ghat to Auli.
We were rewarded with views that will remain with us forever.
Thank you Aquaterra!
