But all these factors were eased by Mumbai Travellers Though you have to kill these factors on your own but the support and management by these people were awesome… Most of us do not like the parental moderation when we are exploring new places so as we three friends… the decision was to make whether we have to go with MT or search for other group who can lead us to a riders dream place… decision was made and we are glad that we travelled with MT!!! Three Cheers for MT ..it was truly a memorable journey…. Looking forward to have many such memories with you guys Nilesh Haldankar, Jogi Prajapati, Suraj Shinde.”

Omkar Malushte –“10 days of sheer adventure… Spiti was one tour which was to ticked off from bucket list asap… so it was 2017 finally decided to visit spiti and did my booking with MT, still sceptical whether would do it on my bike or travel in SUV. So finally I was doing it on my bike. As the tour commenced the group was a great mixture of all ages with enthusiast people eager to explore Himalayas and willing to accept any challenges that may come forward. 10 days of the tour passed swiftly among group of lovely people and beautiful experience it was whether riding on the bike or travelling in TT and SUV. The arrangement of accommodation, food and logistics was absolute fantabulous . couldn’t expect anything more in such kind of terrains. The entire tour was carried out professionally by tour leaders with great coordination. Professionalism was evident in every aspect by MT. Looking forward to next adventure with MT. Thank you MT for this lovely experience..”
Srinivasan KS- I’m basically an outdoor enthusiast and love trekking and touring in Himalaya. The Himalayan range covering North to Northeast offers such a diverse landscape, one will always love to come again and again. Himachal Pradesh, HP, is well known for its tourist attractions. Simla, Kulu, Manali, Dalhousie, Dharamshala and so on. The true face of HP lies beyond these places and very little is known about them. When “Mumbai Travellers” announced their offbeat tour to Lahaul Spiti, I and my wife decided to join them. We knew from our experience of past tours with MT, it would planned meticulously and offer a a good experience to be with nature. Setting off from Chandigarh by SUVs with like minded group of travellers, daring but responsible bikers and an excellent support staff, it was a normal road tour via Simla , with a night halt at Narkanda and then towards Rampur where we meet Sutlej river. Here onwards we are following one river or the other and that to me was thrilling. Continuing our journey alongside Sutlej till it meets Baspa river at Karcham and then following Baspa we reached Kinnaur camps at Sangla. Wow ! This camp is just awesome, Heavenly. They almost grow all the vegetables inside the camps for use in kitchen and that too organically ! Though every camp was very good, this one was the best. I just fell in love with the place, the delicious food and the hospitality of the guy Tulsi managing the place. To me travel along winding roads, if I can call them so, with mighty rivers on one side, mighty mountains with landscapes varying from one extreme to another and unpredictable weather, Hot at times, cold at times, windy sometime is the best way to know nature from close. Travelling alongside the great rivers and standing amazed at the confluences of Baspa with Sutlej, Spiti with Sutlej, Pin with Spiti were the high points of this dream come true tour. It was beyond all my expectations and will remain fresh in memory for lifetime. There were of course other highlights like visiting Basteri village, Chandraral lake, crossing scary pagal nullahs and Star gazing. Hats off to MT for organising this very difficult tour look very easy . Special mention about my friends and co-founders, Nilesh and Jogi who have special skill to attract like minded adventurists and keep the spirit of the group very high with their constant interactions. Looking forward to next such adventure with them..
Dr.Jay Gupta – ” Spiti and Pin Valley are completely off beat tours. with Mumbai Travellers, we did it in our own car, svelte red Creta. I love driving, and the leaders in the tour, Nilesh and Jogi helped me take this further. Spiti is an unpredictable place given the height, terrain and the suddenly changing terrain due to sudden changes in temperatures. Their leadership skills are commendable given they managed 5 bikes, 4 cars…….total 21 people. Apart from the fact that there were no roads, only stones, beaten mud and rushing Pagal Nallahs, the leaders, including Kiran gave us a wonderful culture trip in the villages. Batseri and Kibber need interaction with villagers. so we went hiking around the place, both to acclimatize and fully understand the lives of people who have chosen to stay at that height and terrain. it was a trip to remember! And it feels so true: when the Himalaya beckons, we MUST go!”
