"We are a group of 4 couples planning to trek and camp in Manali area. We found Potala Adventurers online and booked trek and camping with them. Mr. Prem was very helpful in guiding us to the right trek. Mr. Tenzin also helped us a lot and made arrangements to handle our other luggage as well. The guides organized by them were very helpful. The entire trekking and camping were wonderful and memorable. All arrangements were hassle-free. Thanks a ton to Potala Adventures and Prem and Tenzin for their support. Best wishes"
