        I took a trekking tour with Ashmita Trek that covered around 10-12 miles through the Himalayan foothills through Tonglu and Tumbling. I went around mid-February. This area is incredibly beautiful, there are rolling green hills, cloud capped peaks, good views of the snowy Himalayas which feel so close, and also small houses and huts that serve as both posts for travelers and homes for those that live in the surrounding region.

        I think its safe to say that this was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I absolutely loved this trekking tour - not just because the surrounding landscape was so beautiful but because our guide was so knowledgeable about the flora, fauna, and history of the region. He taught us things about the wildlife and the kinds of plants that grew there, about the hidden temples/monasteries and Buddhist writings, flags, and monks that you will find all over. The trek also covers a lot of ground - because it lasts a full day you have time to stop and appreciate all these things. On a clear day - you will get a view of Mt Everest. It was a little cloudy at the exact time we were passing by the spot you were able to get a view. However, a couple trekkers who left earlier on a similar tour with a different guide got a great picture on their camera.

        Our guide was also a really good guy. Unfortunately I forget his name but it was Subash who set up the tour for us. He taught us about the history of the region, shared his views on its future and helped us talk to people there to learn more about them. He also treated us to a really delicious breakfast in the mountain town before heading out. He told me he was a very serious mountaineer and was planning to study in Seattle for a more ambitious climb the next year.

        I think it was quite dark when I got back. I forget the time but it was late and I remember being tired. I was with 3 of my friends and they were fast asleep. He gave us green Buddhist sashes with markings on them and they were very beautiful. I really liked Ashmita because the whole experience was very personal. There were times we would just walk for a long time in silence. They really want you to experience everything first hand and for yourself. I believe its because they love the region so much, and they want everyone to love and experience it too

        I booked the 2 day trek to Tonglu and Tumling via the Ashmita website. I was traveling on my own and looking to make last-minute plans that involved trekking, landscape photography, and seeing the outdoors. During the online booking process, which was very easy and straightforward, the Ashmita staff were highly professional and very attentive/responsive to my email queries.My guide was Sangay, who was perhaps the most thoughtful, kind, generous, and professional guide I have ever met. He is also a wonderful person with a rich knowledge of Darjeeling and the mountains, awesome hiking/mountain stories, and a warm sense of humor. He has significant experience as a guide and mountaineer and has excellent English language and people skills. We became friends instantly! I intend to keep in touch with him into the future!
        I recommend Ashmita MOST HIGHLY to anyone looking to book a guided trek in the Darjeeling region. 
        I myself intend to return for a second visit, and I plan to book my next trek through Ashmita.

        Great trek. The first day we encountered quite heavy snowfall and we found the going quite tough but our experienced guide Sangay was fantastic and as well as being very knowledgable about the ground we covered was good humoured and patient throughout and made sure we stopped a couple of times for tea along the way. A lunch stop in a lodge en route was also included. The overnight was in Tumling at a lodge where there was a warming fire and rooms were sparse but clean and hot water bottles were provided (as the rooms had no heating).We were up early in the morning to go and see sunrise on a day when the weather changed totally and we had clear blue skies and perfect views of Mount Kanchenjunga and Everest in the distance. After spending more time trekking up to Tonglu for further panoramic views we trekked a further seven km back downhill to meet the van to take us back. Driver was also good and vehicle was in excellent condition with working seat belts. Communication with office beforehand was also very good and prompt to respond to our questions.Organisation struck as very professional and have no hesitation in recommending them and especially if you are able to have Sangay as your guide.

        We stumbled upon Ashmita Trek and Tours on our first day of exploring Darjeeling and decided to do the two-day/one-night hike to Tumling. We only managed to complete the first leg of our hike when, unfortunately, due to some health difficulties from the high altitude, we had to descend. The care, responsibility and hospitality that the Ashmita team showed us, ensured we were always safe, and had the best experience possible. Our guide Tenzing was extremely kind and insightful, teaching us about the local region, the religions and gastronomy. Subash in Darjeeling helped us with everything, from seeing the best sights of Darjeeling, to our hike, and even helping book the next part of our trip. Despite not being able to complete the full course of our trek, we are indebted to the Ashmita team for an experience we will never forget, and we would very happily do again. We will without a doubt come back and do another trek with Ashmita next time we are in Darjeeling or Nepal, and we recommend Ashmita to anyone looking to explore and learn about the part of India and Nepal, for any level trip or traveller.
