At the summit, a 360-degree view of mountain peaks sways you off; not just the famous peaks like Bandarpoonch, Swargarohini, Kalanag, Gangotri, Yamunotri, and DhaulaDhar ranges but also hundreds of other untouched and untainted virgin mountains welcome you with a warm embrace.

  • review rating 5  There was a very good word of mouth about trips organized by Hikerwolf which I was coming across since quite some time and finally planned to join the trip to Hampi Island in Jan 2020. I must say it marks a very good start to the year.. Organizers (I will call them friends now) , ensured each and every moment on the trip was worth remembering with their sincere efforts. Everything from the travel, stays, meals, local sightseeing, fun..was arranged so perfectly that there is no room for disappointment. Kudos to both Rameez and Shubham for making this happen. Both of them ensured what Hikerwolf offered was smoothly accomplished. They were so professional and aware about the places, things to do that by no chance I had to Google for any trip suggestions after reaching Hampi. I would like to specially mention Rameez as a person. He turned out to be a very good friend rather than just being a trip planner. Hearing and acting with full sincerity to everyone's ask is not an easy task and that with too with a bunch of unknown people. Hats off to him for pulling it off effortlessly. See you soon Hikerwolf...I am part of the pack now😉
