    I was sceptical at first about choosing Tripsaa for my first trek, but undoubtedly this was the best decision easily. Only because of experienced great trek leaders like Shiv sir and Charlie sir were to able to reach the top of the summit-Hampta. I wanted to give up multiple times but Shiv sir didn’t let me. Right before reaching the Hampta top- Shiv Sir stopped and let me go agead of him - he wanted me to complete the trek before him. Coming to the food at Tripsaa camp -from day 1 of our acclimatisation process to the very last day of camp was fresh, hot and delicious. Each of the meal was specifically curated to understand what our body might be requiring at that particular height. Highlight for us was definitely red sauce pasta and pahado wali maggie! Lastly doing business in the pit holes might be tricky and difficult- tripsaa tents not only had soil at all times but also saw dust , tissue papers and air freshners at all times which made the experience a little soothing xD All in all will definitely come on a trip with Tripsaa very soon. We all became a family by the end of the trip. A family of 28 🙂
