We (myself, wife and 11 yr daughter) went on a customised trek to Ali-Bedni Bugyal (2nights 3 days) trek via Trekmunk from 14 to 21 May. Overall experience was below par leaving us wanting across quite a few areas. Initial communication and response to discuss trek options and finalisation was very good and allowed us to customise the plan according to our needs. We broke our journey from Dehradun to Wan (village where we start the trek) with an overnight stopover. I was told that the driver knows the place very well and accommodation should be easily found. However, due to the heavy surge in tourists during the holiday season, everything was sold out. On reaching out to Mr Ranjeet for help, he said there is nothing available and we need to figure something out ourselves. We searched online and on calling several places enroute finally found a place at 9pm much to our relief which allowed us a decent night's sleep before proceeding to Wan the following morning. Since the trip was planned over a month in advance, we could've easily pre-booked a place to avoid this last minute scramble had we been properly advised. Food was the biggest disappointment during the trek. On reaching Wan we were provided with boiled bitter gourd (karela) and thick ragi rotis and a half-cooked watered down Dal as our dinner. My wife and I managed to wolf it down as we were quite hungry but our daughter just couldn't handle it and remained hungry. Accommodation at Wan were also very basic - dormitory style with 5 beds in a room, common bathroom and toilet. We were lucky as there was no one else staying there at the time. Again this wasn't indicated to us at the time of booking - we were just told that accommodation would be in a guest house. In our previous experience the homestays are usually very nice and clean with a private room and attached bath. We were therefore very disappointed but accepted the situation - what else could we do? The challenge with food continued during the trek. We have done multiple treks with other agencies in Himachal and Sikkim and usually food provisions are organised in advance and carried to the campsites on mules as part of the itinerary. However, in this case, even though we were charged Rs. 62000 for a 3 day trek, the organisers skimped on carrying any food provisions. We were told that there is a dhaba at the campsite and all meals will be arranged there. After an exhausting 5 hr climb on the 1st day we were given a plate of rice with dal on top of it - that's all. No vegetables, juice, snacks etc were provided which are usually given as part of any trekking experience. On our return trip (descent), we started in the morning and as we were closer to our destination (Wan) enquired about arrangements for lunch at around 2pm. We were told they hadn't thought about it as all dhabas in the village would have closed their kitchen! Couldn't this be planned earlier and arrangements for a packed lunch made? Upon pressing for making some arrangements the guide Narendar started making a few calls and eventually arranged a dhaba which gave a plate of dal and rice (again). Overall, I feel being highly short-changed after charging us pretty much on par with other trekking agencies. There is definitely need for improvement on 1. informing the client about details on what will and will not be provided so that we can organize to bring our own provisions if required 2. being more proactive and responsive after the payment is done (all communication were very good till the point I made the payment after which it was very intermittent) 3. Being aware of changes in the situation (e.g. high volume of tourists coming in) and evaluating the impact to our journey and stepping in to support with corrective measures 4. Providing wholesome meals during the trek with atleast a couple of vegetable options, bread, biscuites, packaged juice, etc. This is really standard practice and we were shocked that Ranjeet, Narendra and team were so cavalier about this The reason for writing this is to help other people planning a trip with Trekmunk to be really particular and clear upfront on what will be provided and excluded during the trek to the last detail (especially food) and hope this helps them to make a better informed decision on what they are signing up for. I would personally look for an alternate operator that is better organised and does not skimp on fundamental provisions just to increase their profit margins.

We had one of the worst experience in trekking. We have trekked since last ten years, both nationally and internationally, using various service providers. But somehow Trekmunk turned out be at the bottom. Ladies exercise caution. We found their support staff mostly drunk and misbehaving.

My experience with trekmunk for Brahmatal trek was not at all a pleasant one. I got ripped off and duped on multiple fronts. First of all I was told that there would be a group of atleast 6-8 people for the trek. Till 3 days before it was only me and my friend in that group. On asking them if we could be shifted to the other trek which had a bigger group we were first told yes but in the end we were promised we will be merged with another group of 5-6 people on reaching the base camp for Brahmatal itself so we agreed to continue. I asked the concerned person three times to confirm whether merging will happen and she said yes. We were also told two more persons will be joining us from dehradun itself thus the cab cost of 7000 INR from dehradun to lohajung will be split between 5 of us. On reaching dehradun the other two people in addition to three of us who were supposedly to join us did not join and the cab cost split between 3 of us instead of 5. On reaching lohajung we were told no merging will take place so for entire trek it was a group of only 3 people. Also the person we were corresponding with before the trek started, disappeared after we reached the base camp and we could not get in touch with anyone from the head office till the end of the trek. After the trek ended, while leaving from lohajung we enquired for cab till Dehradun and we were told no matter which vehicle we would take( either small or big) we would still be charged 7000 INR. Even if we were to go to Nainital or Rishikesh, which are much nearer than Dehradun we would still be charged the same amount. Compared to other companies like trek the Himalayas which charge the same for the trek but don't charge separately for cab to and from dehradun/ rishikesh , the three of us ended up paying 4800 INR each additionally just on transportation. We were also duped on the group size which led to us paying exorbitant amounts for transportation. I would not recommend trusting them with any confirmations the trekmunk people provide. The local guide who travelled with us for the trek was very nice and only saving grace on the journey.
