    The perfect trekking organisation, I had been with them from Rajgad to Torna trek last weekend. The complete trek was very well organised, both the trek leads were calm and composed when we had certain last minutes challenges. They are also completely aware of proper food and water points which matters precisely for long-distance treks in Sahaydri.
    One request I would like to make is, to get the latest update of the trekking route through their network before the trek, to avoid last minutes hiccups!
