My sister and I booked a trek with Ashmita during monsoon season in late June. This was a low-altitude trek through Darjeeling, Tumling, and surrounding areas. It was an excellent experience. Subash was very responsive and went out of his way to make sure our tour went smoothly. And our guide, Pemba, was extraordinary. He anticipated our every need and beyond, and he was knowledgeable, gentle, welcoming, and kind. 5 stars, must book!

A wonderful experience from start to finish
I booked a 2 day trek via email a couple of months ago. Subash took lots of time to work out a suitable itinerary with me and then supported me through getting the right kit and paying. He was always flexible, knowledgeable and understanding.
Our guide, Sangay, was just superb! Hugely experienced (he's been on some serious expeditions), he went the extra mile in tailoring our experience as we went, looking out for our limits but meeting both my teenage son's requirements to be stretched and mine to see as much flora and fauna as possible too. He looked after us at every stop ensuring our lodging, food and tea's were perfect. He was truly pleasurable company and added to our enjoyment. Best of all, he woke us at 5 this morning (as agreed, if the weather had changed and the clouds parted) to see views of the sleeping Buddha and Everest.
Trekking in monsoon was a great experience for us. Hardly another soul and ever changing weather. We were blessed with rain only while we slept

Great and Trust worth
To trek in Darj was my last minute decision , lack of gear and plan was solved once I met Subash, he helped me out to get my stuff in local store, and very cheap and nice trekking shoes in 900 rubees. I also had a very inflexible schedule and timing, Subash helped me to sort out and customized my personal trek with my guide Pemba.
As a single women traveling in India, I've been heard lots story from solo female travelers. Pemba was really nice, reliable guide who cared of my breath condition while we were trekking. If any female trekkers has any concern about trekking with male guide, Pemba is totally someone trust worthy.
I had two days trip to Tonglu, stay a night in Tumbling in a nicely guest house, it was fun to met other trekker there and made friends with everyone. Subash helped me out most of the things while I was in Darj, I enjoy times talk with him and had wonderful tea together

Very well organised tour
I used Ashmita during my trip to Darjeeling in December 2014 and I must say that I am really satisfied with the provided service.
Our trip included pickup/drop-off from airport, guided tour of Darjeeling area and a 2 day trek. Everything was professionally organised and we had a competent driver with us at all times. Subash also arranged for an excellent hotel with brilliant views. The trek was also very good with a very nice and helpful guide (unfortunately his English wasn't that great).
I would definitely recommend them and would like to try a longer trek

Trekking to Tonglu Ridge + Darjeeling train
We didn't have lot of time so we decided to make a 2 days trek that Subash recommended us. The way up it happend to be too short but with nice views. We went up in less than 2h, we slept in Tumbling, nice place and food and amazing sightseeing in the sunrise. After breakfast we went down to Maneybhanjan after a 5h walk. Dawa, our guide, became a friend to us, he offered us so many times tea that did not need to drink water!
About the train it was a waste of time for us, as it follows the same road the cars do, and we have already made it by car twice and apart of the views there is nothing interesting about it.

Myself and three of my friends web on a three day two night hike with Pemba. He was so caring and really took care of our every need from start to finish.

Great treking experience, wonderful service!
My wife and I did a 2 day trek through Ashmita March 2014 and had a great time. We walked into the Ashmita office after reading reviews and Subash tailored our trip to our needs. We've been traveling India for over a month and had little in the way of appropriate gear / clothing. We also had limited time and couldn't do a 5 day trek as some recommend. Subash was very friendly and put together a great trip, and even gave us jackets. The trip was quite amazing, with an overnight in a village at 3000m. Food was wonderful, service was wonderful, and the views were quite amazing. I would highly recommend our guide Ajay as well. He was warm, professional, knowledgeable, and patient. We started our trek in his village, got to meet his wife and daughter, and set off from there to take in epic terrain and great views of the Himalayas. I would definitely use Ashmita again if I were to return.
