    We visited tiger hill sunrise and trek after arranging with Ashmita Trek and Tours. The trip was amazing and luckily we had good weather! We were provided with a map and helpful directions for the walk down. We also booked our tickets to Kolkata here which was simple, not always the case in India! Subash was really friendly and keen to have a laugh. Would definitely book a longer tour and trek here when I return.

    Thank you Subash and Team for our wanderfull experance !
