I got to know Ashmita Trek and Tours from Darjeeling-tourism website, It was highly recommended as the best tour in Darjeeling for trekking and sightseeing tour.
Without hesitate I sent email to the person in charge of the tour - Subash Tamang. Since the purpose of my trip to Darjeeling is for sightseeing so I have sending the list of places that I wanted to visit and also pickup and drop services in airport. Subash is trying his best to arrange the tour for us and to fit in all the time nicely without too rush, as I would like to enjoy and relax during the tour.
As per arranged, the pickup from Bagdogra airport by comfortable a/c Innova car to Darjeeling, the journey took 3.5 hours with winding roads, So it is very important to choose a comfort car.
During the sightseeing tour, everything going on smoothly and due to it is private tour so we can stop at any place we want for photography and break. Our driver Narbu is a friendly guy and he is very patient to wait for us especially me who like to take photos.
Finally I met Subash because he is our guide for our half day trekking trip from Ghoom to Darjeeling. We passing by local villages along the trekking and the scenery is really beautiful and peaceful. Subash is very down to earth person and we has shared with me a lot about the culture and background of Darjeeling.
Since everyone has their own preference on what to see and what to do during the trip, Subash has ask me what is our interest in order for him to arrange a place for us to visit. I told him that I would like to go to monastery and meet up monks and so on. He brought us to Deli Gompa Monastery, one of the biggest in Darjeeling, he knows there will be prayer at 4pm so we reach there just on time to see and experience the prayer which is really amazing.
Subash has shared some trekking experiences with me and definitely I will engage with him again when I return to Darjeeling to join him for trekking in Sikkim on day.
If you are looking for a private tour in Darjeeling, Ashmita Trek and Tours is the BEST choice..!!
