We were two women from France and we felt very safe when doing the chadar trek on january 2019 with rocky feet team. The staff was fully skilled, excellent, very professionnal, and our guide Tashi was an exceptionnal guide that cares about the safety and the well being of each member of the group. The food ( veg and non veg ) was fresh, various and delicious every day. All staff (from the cook to the porters) were very kind , available , and taking good care of all of us.
The administrative staff that pick us up at the airport and accompany us for the formalities of insurance , medical check up, was incredibly nice , professionnal and was present before the trek and after the trek till our last day to the airport.
We highly recommend rocky feet .read more

They are the BEST !
Done chadar trek this year with them and I never ever expected such an awesome experience.
A big thanks to management, guids and finally the great great chef who made our trek extra perfect.read more
Considering our safari trip to be the first of it's kind from Rockyfeet, I must say Titash had led us through an amazing journey!! He had minutely taken care of every bits n pieces of our puzzle starting from accommodation to safari bookings! Furthermore the selection of resorts and their hospitality had been to the T! Kudos RockyFeet!!
Had been wishing long for a trip with you guys and finally it paid off and how!! Looking forward to more amazing experiences!!read more
It was a nice experience with Rockyfeet when we had a trip to Ladakh. We always got proper response in email whenever we had queries prior to the trip. Everything was perfectly arranged by Arnab. Our stay, food, transportation in Leh, Pangong, Nubra, Tso Moriri were excellent. We loved everything about the trip. We would love to travel with them again.read more
Whatever, it maybe the first experience or last experience; once a experience always a experience.
But trekking experience with Rocky Feet was just amazing. I don't know about other trekking organisations because it was my first trekking to singalila pass trek. But I am confident enough that I don't need to contact any other organizations in near future. Although a few words are not enough to describe to whole trekking experience, but till I want to highlight some points are, 1)Every night at dinner place there was a team meeting how to fulfill the trekkers desire more and more and make the experience more passionate. 2) There were another 2-3 groups at the same campsite. But I will say our tent were far better than others as design point of view. 3)And no words to describe the hospitality of supporting team. So special thanks to our team leader Titash and obviously the whole RockyFeet team.read more
„...Sometimes accidents can happen“ is what we got told on our first day. And so we accidentally fell in love with Sikkim. We did the 7-day Singalila trek with Rocky in Feb 18 and could not have made a better choice. All the friendly and warmly people that have been with us in those days made this trip a very unique experience. Everything was well organized and food was really delicious and surely there was no risk of starving :). We also really liked the trek where we could enjoy a breathtaking view of the Kangchenjunga which was a great highlight of our trip. Thanks again also to our trek leader, Wriju, whose company we really appreciated and who also became a good friend.read more
Was part of 2nd batch of Chader Trek 2018, and What a Memorable experience it was ! I think that is what you get when you bank upon guys who are passionate about what they are doing. Rather than outsourcing the hard stuff, they are walking alongside you through thick and thin - to tackle the next obstacle together, to show you the unseen, to celebrate with you on your achievements. From handling the logistics to the safety and comfort (yes you heard it right), everything was taken care of.
To elaborate, getting a different meal everyday according to a personalized hand picked menu and to get wrapped up in two Sleeping Bags with extra liner and a hot water bottle to beat the cold at -30 C, sheer luxury !
On the safety side, daily monitoring of oxygen levels of the group, carrying of an oxygen cylinder for the emergency needs and the use of micro crampons so that you can walk freely continuing in your natural walking style ensuring you to explore and appreciate your surroundings even more rather than keeping your gaze downwards worrying of the slippery surface , it was a big boon for me as i could use my dslr freely without the fear of the fall. And to top it all, Arnab da and E.T the harbingers of a new travel era where nature will always get preference over money and where indulging outdoors would not mean spoiling the sensitive ecosystem. RockyFeet is not a business venture, its a dream, a vision of a brave man fullfilling the only cause that matters, conserving nature for the future generations by encouraging you to feel, see and get in touch with nature, just the way nature wants you to. When you sign up with RockyFeet, you go out to explore, you get inspired and you return back as a sensible traveller. Thanks a lot for the good times RockyFeet.
Keep inspiring!read more
We had the most enriching experience with RockyFeet. We attempted Stok Kangri Summit and everything was done as planned. The amenities prvided by RockyFeet at such an altitude where indeed done with great pains to make us very confortable. The food and tents were absolutely superb and there was no difficulty whatsoever because of the extreme weather. Each day with RockyFeet was a real pleasure because they assured that we are comfortable during the trek. The patience and techniques adopted by RockyFeet are indeed marvelous so I recommend all of you to join RockyFeet for your future treks.read more

I am a member of the RockyFeet society. The immense efforts of Boro ( Arnab Ghosh ) to raise the organization like a single parent, working late nights for years, in spite of having a day job is what is taking it ahead towards achieving a dream of a sustainable future by opening up people's senses towards the natural world and spreading the idea of conservation as a way of life with a three pronged approach; Explore, educate and conserve. The seeds of passion towards Nature and dedication to a cause, that he has planted in the rest of us has helped me realize my dreams in life and led me to the long and winding path of becoming a true RockyFeet myself. It also shows in the appreciation that we have received unanimously from all our eco-tourists, school children we have worked with, agencies that have partnered with us in our ventures and everyone else I can think of. Travel with RockyFeet to learn more about this greener approach to life and to raise a fund for the environment to be used in our educational and conservational ventures.read more
I have been to Chadar trek in January 2017 with RockyFeet. It was one of the best organized treks I have been to. One good thing was trekking in small batches which made it comfortable for both trekkers and organizers. There was a good coordination between trek leaders and local people for planning the trek. Considering extreme weather of Ladakh in January, we did not face any problem related to accommodation and food. Most importantly, we had a great time throughout the trek. The trek was completed safely as scheduled. The things I liked about RockyFeet are including local people in the trek and encouraging responsible eco-friendly trekking. Looking forward to the next trek with RockyFeet! 🙂read more
Well, the experience was good and the team too.We joined them for Bramhatal trek, and they took well care from our... pickup point to drop. They did cover the pickup and drop in their expense, along with homestay for a small group and mule expenses for the trek. All in all, I'd say better to go with them if you have a group of more than 6 people.read more
Being my first trek, I was super vigilant in getting the best operator on board to help me with the preparation and the... overall organisation.I narrowed down on Rockyfeet after a lot of deliberation. It was indeed an excellent choice. Arnab and his team in doing a fabulous job.I felt that Rockyfeet was able to induce a personal touch with the participants which helped in making a tight bond amongst all.The overall organisation was immaculate in terms of guides (Mr. Lappu and Mr. Sonam), food (awesome cooks), porters (Lifeline of the trek), tenting facilities, equipments Etc.The group was well cared for during the entire trek. Rockyfeet has definitly proved my choise to be right and I shall recommend all to go ahead with the same.With Arnab, felt like being with my own brother. He comes in with immense knowledge and experiences to share. I do recomend that his knowledge be exploited to the fullest. He was extremely patient and cheerful in answering all my queries with his own personal experiences. I left Leh with a warm heart and new friends and am already planning on the next trek with Rockyfeet.Kudos Guys, you made my trip!Best Regards,Hiteshread more

All reviews are paid and fake. They ask their customer to write great things about them and in return promise to give... tshirts but that too they fail to giveHere's my review after doing chadar trek with Rockyfeet Arrangements were ok but biggest disappointment is it has been 8 months and still they haven't given the trek certificate. Guys choose your trek company wisely I am sure other companies provide trek completion certificate on the last day of trek and now regret choosing Rockyfeetread more
