    Did Valley of flowers trek with Renok Adventures was an amazing experience . This year again going for the valley of flowers trek.
  • Goople + Page : Renok Adventures Reviews

    in the last week

    It was truly one of a kind experience that we had with Renok Adventures (for our Hampta Pass Trek Oct 2nd-6th,2014). We (including my two other friends) are totally impressed by the service they provided, be it the yummy food, the friendly atmosphere or the way each one of us was taken care of. To be honest, when we saw trekkers from other group finding it difficult to find their way back to the camp, we were happy that we chose this trekking group. Even though this trek made us realize that Himalayan trekking is not that easy, we were happy that the guides encouraged us all the time to move forward and thanks again for waiting for the ones at the back.

    We will surely recommend this company to our friends. And not to say, if we plan for more treks in future, Renok Adventures will be our first choice.
