                              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.
