Is this Holiday for you ?

On this holiday we will go up to an altitude of no more than 2200m. Therefore, altitude is not a problem. It is an easy trek with no more than 4-5 hour walk on both days. It is the perfect itinerary for anyone looking for a weekend camping and also, beginners looking for an introductory trek. Families can also consider this trek to take their near ones on an adventure. You will be advised by the UFO guide to rest and keep your body hydrated, walk slow and steady and eat well. There is fair bit of walking to be done every day, and we would encourage you to do a bit of walking/running and breathing exercises to enjoy this trek. A decent level of fitness will help you enjoy the trekking holiday better.

Why trekkers love us?

I wanted to introduce my 9 year old girl to trekking & camping and make it like a yearly family ritual. UFO team made this experience for us so memorable.It was a short 2 days trip to Benog Santuary where we trekked through quaint villages and beautiful trails and saw some amazing views. Weather was super too (end march). We had a great time, specially my daughter. Thank you UFO.

Roopali Rawat

UFO are great partners when seeking adventure. I did an expedition to Mentok Kangri in Ladakh, day hike to the double living root bridge in Cherrapunji, Meghalaya and camping in Hemis national park in Ladakh. UFO are very hospitable in accommodating their guests specially at high altitudes.

Suyesh Rawat

UFO is certainly the organizer to go for treks with if you want personalized and customized services. We did the Goecha La trek in Sikkim with them. The guides, food and equipment was spot on and the trek leader had specialist knowledge of the area. The days were planned way better than other groups we spoke with. Despite the high-end service, UFO prices are extremely competitive. Just go for it!
