I had sent a mail in advance mentioning my requirements and had received proper response through mail and as soon I got down at the railway station at Newjal Paiguri(NJP),Mr.Santhosh Tamang had reached to pick me up to drop at Darjeeling. They would make you feel comfortable and service is excellent and reliable.I would definitely recommend them without any doubt.

I and my husband toured Darjeeling and Sikkim between 20th and 28th of April 2016. The Travel arrangements including Hotel accommodation was done by Mr. Subhash of Ashmita Travels. They were truly professional and our entire trip to Mirik, Darjeeling, Kalimpong, Pelling, Gangtok and Nathulla Pass was very well organized. The Drivers cum guides provided by them were very helpful, friendly and informative. We had a very nice and memorable tour. I will surely use their services once again and strongly recommend them.

We are highly recommending choosing Ashmita trek to go on a trekking tour. We have done a trip to the Darjeeling and sikkim in mid-February 2016. Our guide had a good knowledge of the flora and fauna and took very well care of us. The tour was perfectly organized and well structured, therefor we didn`t face any problems. The weather was during some periods not as good as we had hoped for. However every morning we were able to see the sun rising, shining onto the highest mountains of the world and that was just amazing. The accommodations were very comfortable and hospitality. they provided all necessities. The food was excellent and tasty. The mornings and evenings, even though we have been warned were surprisingly cold. In the nighttime we were offered blankets or a fire place or a hot water bottle to keep us warm. The sleeping bag provided by the organization was in good condition. To sum up, we really enjoyed our tour and we are looking forward to go again on a tour with Ashmita Trek.

I got the information from net about many tour operators and somehow from reviews i judged that Asmita Trek and tours must be the best among all and I find it true also. Responses from the operator are quick. Rates are reasonables. Staff at drivers seat was having excellent knowlege of routes and with good behaviour. Vehicles were on time as per schedules. Vehicles provided were in good conditions. What else a tourist wants.
Thank you from Subhash Thareja.

I travelled in Darjeeling recently with Ashmita trek and tours. As a solo female traveller and having not done any travelling on my own I was apprehensive. However my concerns were immediately put at ease. I was met by my courteous driver at Bagdogra airport who drove us up the stunning mountains to Darjeeling, stopping along the way for lunch. I was taken to my hotel (Dekeling Hotel) which was clean, secure, had friendly and helpful staff and the view from my room was worth climbing all of the stairs.
I met Subash, later that evening who was very welcoming, told me about Darjeeling and my plan for the day tour the next day. The next morning I got up early to go to tiger hill, it was cloudy but I was able to get glimpses of the Himalayan mountain ranges. I was then taken to the monasteries and war memorial on the way back in to town.
After breakfast I met Subash who took me on my day trek/ hike around Darjeeling. I had the option of walking or going by car and chose to walk. So glad I did. It allowed me to fully appreciate the stunning landscape and Darjeeling culture, although the trek up the mountain was hard work later in the day. It was just myself on my tour, so I had a private tour of Darjeeling with Subash, who was very informative and answered all of my questions about Darjeeling, and also Indian and Nepali culture. He tailored my day trip to what I wanted to see and do. We visited the zoo, the mountaineering institute, the happy valley tea plantation, monasteries, the Japanese peace pagoda, we had high tea and went to the markets.
The next day I was driven back down to Bagdogra to make my plane for my trip home.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Ashmita trek and tours. I thoroughly enjoyed my tour. I was able to see, do and learn so much in such a short time in such a beautiful place. I felt safe and very welcome. Looking forward to visiting again.
My boyfriend and I have visited Darjeeling in April. I have contacted Mr. Subash few weeks before to arrange for a pickup service from Bagdogra airport and also a sunrise tour in Tiger hill. The drivers were on time and professional. They were friendly and also tried to introduce and share some information of Darjeeling with us. The vehicles were in good conditions and clean.
Besides, I have also asked Mr. Subash to help us to get the toy train tickets last minute. He certainly tried his very best to get them for us and also met us himself in our hotel to accompany us to the train station. At the end, he even managed to take the train with us together until Ghoom. After that, he guided us to trek from Ghoom to Darjeeling, which was around 8kms. It was definitely a highlight of our stay in Darjeeling. We were passing by some small villages of the mountain and meeting the locals. In additional, the scenery during the journey was magnificent! Mr. Subash has shared a lot about the region and its cultures with us.
He also recommend us to go to the best Tibetan restaurant in Darjeeling - Kunga restaurant! Lastly, he even offered us the traditional Tibetan "good luck" scarfs and some Darjeeling tea as souvenir. In conclusion, Mr. Subash has been extremely helpful, friendly, informative and professional. His kindness and generosity touched our heart and made us having a memorable and amazing time in Darjeeling.
If you ever go to Darjeeling/ Sikkim for holidays, I highly recommend you to use the service from Ashmita Treks and Tours.
