                    Molly M - May 22, 2014

                    When Subash Tamang e-mailed my friend Susie to confirm our travel arrangements in North Sikkim, he closed by saying "We are always here to welcome you with our open heart," my own heart felt more open to whatever adventure awaited us. When Subash met Susie, Dave and myself at the NJP rail station on May 4 (He'd had a long wait as our train was late.), he immediately draped a Tibetan scarf around each of our necks and warmly greeted us. This open and welcoming tone would be sustained for the next six days by our guide, Sonam Moktan, as we traveled by jeep into the wondrously diverse and rugged Himalayas. From Gangtok to Lachen to Lachung and the Yumthang Valley, Sonam and our driver, Bhaichung, not only kept us safe, but they opened our eyes and our hearts to the unique natural and cultural life of the Himalayas. Sonam-a trained botanist-was the perfect guide as we trekked along the Rhododendron Path into the Yumthang Valley. He never tired of my questions concerning the incredible diversity of plants. We met some of Bhaichung's relatives when we stopped to eat lunch in Namtok, his home village. There we were served a savory lunch of rice, local fern, dal, pumpkin, spinach and (if I remember correctly) a curried chicken dish. In Lachung, I turned 67 and Sonam celebrated by bringing beautiful pastries to the dinner table. Sonam was also invaluable when I had a bit of stomach trouble and had to stay in bed a few extra hours. He introduced us to a delicious garlic soup tonic which was very helpful (and fortunately we didn't need it too much). When we returned to Gangtok, Subash was there to meet us and introduce the driver who would take us to Kuresong. Thanks to Sonam and Bhaichung, we had a safe and enlightening journey through a rugged and remote range. I highly recommend Ashmita Trek and Tours. Subash kept his word in every way and I continue to be grateful for such a rich experience!

                    Subash and Ashmita Trek & Tours gave me unforgetable experience in Darjeeling. After saw hit bollywood movie Barfi, I decided to visit Barfi's shooting location in hill land. Subash arranged a location tour for me and told me some interesting episode during shooting period in Darjeeling. We also walked through almost whole Darjeeling downtown to have great tea and snacks. If you want to enjoy Darjeeling and Nepal, try to discuss with Subash and Ashmita Trek&Tours first. I am pretty sure you will get good response.

                    We were staying in darjeeling only for a short time and wanted to do a trek/tour of the himalayas. After wondering around the town for a while with no luck we eventually came across ashmita trek & tours. This was the only place we found with a tour to suit our time frame. We did a one day trek of the himalayas and the owner of the company was able to join us on the trek as our personal guide. Throughout the booking experiance we were not forced in any way and were provided with lots of information, pictures and videos of previous tours. We were picked up right outside our hotel and headed straight there. We were given large amounts of food all across the journey and were able to stop at any point we wanted for pictures or tea! The owner was very knowledgeable and the driver too. Our tour was meant to finish at 5pm but we were out until 8pm for no extra charge and dropped straight back to our hotel. The experiance and company were absolutely amazing and we ended up spending the next day with the owner as he was so lovely.
                    There is absolutely nothing bad to say about the whole experiance Thank you so much Subash for showing us such a great time!
