  I planned a South India tour from Chennai to Kochi. I asked from many different travel companies but I got the best and cheapest offer by 'Way to India'. That was two weeks travel plan. We visited so many wonderful places and we got enough time for some individual program too. In the first week we visited the historical places like temples, museums and some beaches. In the second week we visited amazing natural attraction. All happened at exactly fixed itinerary. We traveled with a comfortable panoramic mini bus and the bus driver (Mr. Ram) was very kind and talented who could manage a good restaurant for dinner and lunch every day. The recommended hotels were correct and better than the chosen category. The connecting with 'Way to India' was a great experience for us and Mr Mohit was very pleasant and flexible for our request. All in all believe that this was the best choice for traveling. I'm sure we'll go back in India again because we found many kind friends at there and we would like to organize travel again by 'way to India'. thanks for all you have done for us thank you so much

  It took a year of planning to suit a budget and unique needs for 10 people. Patience and support for that one year and throughout the travel experience was excellent leaving no area wanting.

  I am so delighted and grateful that I found Way to India. I was nervous about doing a trip by myself, as a young woman, in the Himalayas and it was important for me to find a trusted company to arrange my trip. I searched long and hard but once I spoke with Mohit at Way to India, I knew I found the perfect company. Every question I had or issue I needed help with was handled immediately, proficiently, with excellent service that really went above and beyond. All of the people connected with the company that I met or spoke with are extremely helpful, friendly and an absolute pleasure to deal with. The itinerary created was just perfectly tailored for what I wanted and was done with a lot of thought and care. They stayed connected with me through the entire trip to make sure everything was going well. Really, I did not have to worry or think about anything. I will use them every time I come back to India! I highly recommend to all my friends and family and to anyone who wants a memorable visit to India.   Aditi Banerjee

  Thanks to Waytoindia for 10 day in Rajasthan- Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Udaipur, Mount Abu and Ahmedabad. Everything from pickup from Jaipur airport to drop at Ahmedabad airport was very smooth. The hotels booked in Jaipur and Udaipur were amazing. In Jaisalmer the camel ride and Jeep safari though a bit expensive was a good experience. The car and the driver for the entire 10 days was very good. Thanks to the driver Mahesh, who drove the 2 ladies for the entire 10 days safely and dropped us in time for the return flight to Bangalore.

Overall it was a memorable trip customized by Way2india for us. Thanks to Ankit.

    Travel Tips For Kedarkantha Trek


    Travel Tips For Kedarkantha Trek

    • The Kedarkantha Trek is easily one of the most underrated and beautiful treks in the Himalayas. Situated on the Western borders of the Garhwal Himalayas, the Kedarkantha Trek will transport you into the midst of a snowy wonderland. The snow in this region starts from December and continues till mid-April. It is truly one of the few places in the Garhwali Himalayas where it is an absolute delight to go trekking in the winter.
    • The journey from Dehradun to Sankri is long but is easily one of the most picturesque drives in the subcontinent. You will experience rolling alpine fields, forests of oak and pine, and the majestic snowy peaks of the Garhwali
    • First-time trekkers are urged to carry a trekking pole and buy hardy trekking shoes to protect your feet from the rugged terrain of the Kedarkantha Trek and snakebites. Also, try to exercise regularly so that you are accustomed to the continuous walking and climbing that you have to do on this trek. The Kedarkantha Trek is deceptively tough in some places too. At night, the temperature can fall to -3° Therefore, make sure you carry adequate clothing.
    • Carry energy bars with you as a snack if you get hungry on the Kedarkantha Trek, as there very few shops where you can buy something to eat. Other rudimentary supplies you can procure from Dehradun at the beginning of your trek.
    • The base camp of Kedarkantha Peak on the Kedarkantha Trek is one of the most beautiful base camps in the entire world. You will be in the shadow of the magnificent Kedarkantha Peak, in the midst of glorious forests of pine and rhododendron, amidst rolling valleys teeming with sheep. Make sure to take some truly wonderful pictures at this place.
    • Always keep extra photocopies of your identification documents like Aadhaar Card/Driver’s License, etc on hand. These areas have constant military patrolling and you may be asked to produce proof of identity.
    • Drink only boiled water. Carry a well-equipped first-aid kit with you at all times.
