Manish and his crew made the himalayan experience amazing. They handled every detail from landing in Delhi until our departure from Leh. All of the hotel accommodations and the coordination to get between them was superb. The experience traveling through Ladakh and India was life changing and I could not have asked for a better tour guide or adventure. The entire crew made the journey easy and fun, I would definitely travel with Himalayan Vacations again.

Manish is a person who turns any vague idea of holiday you have and turns it into the one of the most memorable times you have on vacation. Has detailed knowledge of the holiday hotspots and ensures that the Package he designs for you, fits the bill perfectly.

A great organiser of tours to places where nature is in finest self. Everything is at scheduled time, takes all the details in consideration & is real value for money. Guys just hand over all your travel related problems to him & focus your energy on enjoying your trip. I recommend trying him once & you will come back again.
Manish and his team are top-notch tour guides. With Manish as my tour guide on a motorcycling tour through the Himalayas, I always felt that my safety, comfort, and enjoyment were always his first priorities. Manish has an excellent knowledge of the areas he tours and is both resourceful and agile in his planning. If you take a tour with Manish and his team, you won’t be disappointed.

In 2013 Manish Chachra put together a custom tour for 4 of us. It was a trip I have wanted to take since I was a kid and he did a brilliant job organizing the 3 week tour, including taking the ‘Toy” train up to Shimla. When I got a flat tyre the back-up truck was there to fix it. His knowledge and ability to adapt the ride on the fly owing to early monsoons was priceless. I am hoping to ride with him again next year. Cheers.

I want to thank Manish Chachra for the trip of a lifetime with Himalayan Vacations in 2013! Manish organized an unforgettable 3 week tour of the Himalayas riding modern Royal Enfields to beyond the 11,000 foot high city of Leh and back. When early monsoons early in the trip kept us from riding the Spiti Valley to get to Leh, Manish quickly rearranged our itinerary through the tea plantations of Mandi and the Himalayan gateway city of Manali. We were back on schedule after those few days and Manish proceeded to lead us to Leh, making sure to take adequate time to allow us to adapt to the increasing elevation and avoid altitude sickness. We enjoyed 4 plus days in and around Leh exploring the high mountain passes, the beautiful scenery and Tibetan culture before returning through Srinagar and back to Delhi. We were so pleased with our trip that my friend and I are discussing doing another motorcycling trip to India with Manish and Himalayan Vacations in 2017! in 2013
Barry travelled with us on the Trans Himalayan Experience in 2013
My husband and I joined 10 others on a trip of a lifetime with Himalayan Vacations! Our trip took us from picking up last minute goods in New Delhi 1000 miles north through some of the most beautiful and rugged countryside in the world. As a pillion rider, I was able to take in all the sights – from evergreen forest valleys to desert mountaintops, streets crowded with people to roads crowded with sheep – Manish and his crew showed us all the highlights of the Himalayas! The Days were filled with riding with breaks for “chai-time” and evenings were long lasting, recalling the day’s events over delicious, family-style meals. The riding was an outstanding mix of paved and off-road adventures. Manish has an amazing knowledge of the route and provided morning updates on what to expect for the day – it’s good to know when to prepare for those stream crossings! Every morning, all of the bikes were clean, fueled and ready to roll thanks to the hard work of the crew – we gave them a LOT to do every night and can’t thank them enough for their dedication and expertise! Top recommendations for Manish and the entire Himalayan Vacations staff for an amazing Indian adventure! Mandy
