Nanda Devi Sanctuary Testimonials

Gordon – Your deft guidance and deep knowledge of India made our experience unforgettably outstanding. All five of our senses were continually stimulated – to the max. Also the unusual bonding of the group was gratifying. We care about one another. Your background and experiences in India helped us experience India in a unique way that no other tour can offer.

I feel the monasteries of Sikkim are unlike any other.We learned a lot, had a memorable and exotic experience and loved meeting all the people we did! They all worked so hard to make our experience the great time it was, especially Yatish. Thank you for all your advice during the time we were arranging the trip, Gordon. You and Yatish provide an astounding resource to Alpine Ascent travelers in India! – 2015 Trekker

We are so pleased with the tour. You have opened a new world for us, a culture and place so beautiful, so complex, so rich. As usual in traveling we come home with another perspective on which to view our own world. The trip was a wonderful overview. I cannot wait for the opportunity to return with you and to explore more profoundly the richness of the culture. Thank you for everything that you have done.- Doug S
