"Do not take our word for it, just have a look what our clients says about us"
Our Mentok Expedition in August 2016
it’s been almost three weeks now that we returned from our tour. Lots of business awaited us here and that’s why we get back to you with this a bit later than we had expected.
Our tour started with a big deception, as you know, because we were not able to obtain a permit for climbing Lungser, due to political and military matters, so that we had to re-orient our trip on very short notice to the Mentok peaks. This was all more than made up, however, by what we think was one of the most memorable trips into the rough that the three of us experienced, due to a beautiful nature and geology of course into which we ventured but perhaps even more due to what you had prepared for us: Absolutely perfect logistics for the entire trip, including excellent material and re-supplies, and a staff whose competence and capabilities were only outdone by their well-spirited friendliness and good humour throughout, in whatever – sometimes harsh – circumstances. Our guide knew the area extremely well and was a very knowledgeable source of information and commentator for all of our many questions, the other staff and horsemen were extremely helpful and watched our agenda with an almost Germanic attention to timeliness and detail, the mountain guides for our climbing Mentok II were real pros who made us feel at home at the mountain, with loads of fun yet always a perfect sense of what mattered technically and in terms of safety, and our cook was perhaps the highlight of all of this, being everywhere at any time of the day and night and creating breakfasts, lunches/lunch packs and dinners that will prompt us at any time to give him our unanimous vote if we were ever called upon to raise our hands in a “Ladakh’s best chef” competition.
Thanks very much again for all of this! We will certainly be back in Ladakh soon.
30th Sept 2016
back to Germany, would like to thank you again for the unforgettable tour to Zanskar, the perfect organization, yr friendly and very professional and competent staff - in every respect.
Special thanks go to our guide GURMAT with his immeasurable patience, kindness and perseverance as well to Gelee Sherpa for his always "good humor" and special dishes and wonderful cakes, sometimes prepared on altitudes above 4000 meters on....
We are already planning a next trip to Ladakh in summer 2018 and will contact you- well in advance - for a new "adventure" tour.
Kindest regards from Germany,

We cannot think of better companions on our 16-day trek from Zinchen to Tsomoriri than the crew from Dreamland Trek & Tours. Lobzang guided us securely under any circumstances, and we felt very safe all the time. He knew the remote area extremely well and was always open to explain Ladakhi culture and landscape to us; our many questions he always answered sincerely and helpfully in his impressive English. Wangtak astonished us every single day anew with his inventive, varied and delicious food. It’s absolutely amazing what he was able to cook on two simple kerosene cookers in hidden valleys, on 5000 m! Believe it or not, we daily got soup, a main dish with three sides, lots of vegetables and a dessert. Back in Leh, we – among else – very much miss the gentle sound of the horse bells we used to hear in the mornings and evenings near to our tent, not to forget the quiet singing and praying of our companions. Dorje, the horseman, looked after his horses with so much love and care as if they were his children. Most importantly, we were deeply touched by how kind, compassionate and cheerful all three were at all times. They helped us and others whenever they could in the most natural way. This taught us much more on humanity than any book on Buddhism probably could. Our many thanks also go to all the people in the background that assured a smooth and safe trek: all drivers were on time, the equipment was excellent, the food was fresh, and also in unforeseen circumstances, the agency always reacted very professionally. Last, we want to mention that we did the trek in late September, beginning of October. It was not too cold at all, and not only the Markha Valley with its red and orange trees and bushes was delightful, but even the soft hills of the Changthang shimmered in golden autumn colours.

El equipo de DreamLand Trek and Adventures es sensacional. Son muy profesionales, con mucha experiencia en todo lo referente a Himalaya, su cultura, etnografia, historia, geograf’ia y, por supuesto, su fauna. Un viaje al Pequeno Tibet pa aver su fauna no puede estar complete si no va acompanado de uno de sus mejores tesoros: su patrimonio humano. Javeed y su equipo te llevan a los festivals budistas en monasterios remotes, para poder ser testigo de excepcion, de los rituales y festividades que se celebrant anualmente.
Todo un lujo y un privilegio compartir con ellos unas semanas de aventura. Sencillamente inolvidable.
Markha Valley trek.
Notre trek dans la vallee de Markha a ete bien organise, nous avons passé 7 jours avec une equipe formidable. Nous avons eu un tres bon guide et des cuisiniers qui nous ont fait gouter tous les plats locaux. Des guesthouse tres sympathiques, propres. Un col a 5 200m qui s est bien passé.

Wir haben zwei Bergtouren (Stock Kangri, Kang Yatse) mit Dreamland Trek And Tour unternommen. Beide waren perfekt und professionell organisiert. Die nepalesischen Führer waren sehr freundlich und kompetent. Besonders hervor heben möchte ich die realistische Tourenplanung. Anders als andere Agenturen, hat Javeed keine unrealistischen Versprechungen im Vorfeld gemacht. Wir können Dreamland Trek And Tour nur wärmstens weiter empfehlen....
"Dreamland is a very professional company"

Im September 2013 waren wir mit Dreamland in Ladakh unterwegs. Dreamland ist eine professionelle Reiseagentur in Leh, die sich sowohl um die Organisation des Trekking als auch um Hotel- und Taxibuchungen kümmert. Hier gibt es das „Rundum-Sorglos-Paket“. ;) Alles in allem war unsere Reise perfekt organisiert, so dass wir Dreamland uneingeschränkt für Trekkingtouren in Ladakh und Zanskar empfehlen können. Die Region und die Agentur sind toll!

Fantastic Spituk to Chilling trek
Matthijs & Adam Roccomends April 2103
It was extremely easy to plan this trip with Javeed, who was helpful and quick to respond. A good start to be followed up with an even more impressive trek. Our guide Pemba was just great. What an amazing man. Kind, helpful, proficient with English and a lot of knowledge of nature and the local culture. It was humbling to (try to) follow his pace up the mountains. Tenzing the cook did a great job rehydrating and reenergising us every morning (French Toast and Pancakes!), noon and evening. He also did a good job laughing at our jokes together with Tashi the courageous ponyman, the fearless freight carrier of the highlands. But this crew's greatest accomplishment was making three oxygen deprived, gasping, sweating, stumbling, freezing low landers feel like they were superstar mountaineers on an Everest expedition.
The trek was amazing. We did it in April which I can recommend because you are the only one on the mountains next to a handful of local farmers and the wildlife. We saw Bharal, Gray Wolves hunting a Yak!, Golden Eagle, Chukar Partridges and YES, a Snow leopard..................footprint.
If you go in April, bring lots of thermo wear and a high grade sleeping bag. During the day you will be fine, but at night on the higher camps temperatures drop far below zero.
We had a great time, thank you Javeed and the Dreamland crew.

Last summer I went with two families (4 adults, 4 children) to Ladakh in India and did a trekking in the Markha Valley (9 days). The trekking organisation we took was Dreamland Trek & Tour in Leh. This organisation was excellent in every aspect. The information on the site and through email was clear, quick and to the point. The organisation of the trekking was 100%. Good staff, new gear, lovely food, strong and healthy horses, friendly guides and a ecological approach. They just finished a garbage cleaning trek in the valley so that everything is cleaned up.

Trekking in Ladakh in Aug-Sep 2012
We are very pleased we have chosen Dreamland Trek & Tour, which is very professional company. They prepared for us 8-day trip through Markha Valley and everything went perfect. They organized for us a guide, cook and horses. Our guide – Motup was always helpful, our cook – Pasang, has been preparing amazing dishes high in the mountains. We are totally impressed. If we had any problem, Javeed, the owner, has prepared anything we needed. They are a good company because they don’t only take care of a trekking but if you ask, also everything you need before and after that. They booked the hotels in Leh and Manali, also taxis around Ladakh and a jeep for a trip Leh-Manali. When we come to Ladakh again, undoubtedly we choose Dreamland Trek & Tour.Danuta, Natalia & Jarek from Poland.

Words not enough to describe Dreamland!
To start with, Javeed had been extremely helpful,transparent and patient through the 50odd email exchanges, over 4 months to finalize the itinerary of our 12 day Srinagar-Leh-Manali jeep safari.The execution was even more rewarding – accommodation, transport,food, guidance, hospitality… .SUPER EXCELLENT!! Each of our drivers ensured we knew the story at every bend of the road. Apart from the breathtaking sceneic beauty all around..the complimentary Shikara ride at Dal Lake, Royal dinner in Kargil,Hospitality at Leh, Camel Safari at Nubra, Camping in Pangong,Luxurious hotel in Manali….are a few Dreamland exclusives.We just had to sit back and ENJOY every moment of it..Dreamland did not leave us a choice They responded to each of our requirements promptly and always to our delight!We wanted to skip Sarchu and add a night in Manali. Javeed & team accommodated this impromptu change in the itinerary, showed tremendous flexibility and made all the arrangements in less than 10 minutes. He also went over and beyond to help us with our tickets from Manali to Delhi, which wasn’t even a part of the package!Folks, you wanted us to carry back good memories… but did you have 16000+ pictures and 50GB+ of video in mind? Neither did we We are glad that we made the perfect choice of Dreamland.Meeting Parvez, Javeed, Rigzin & Team in person at Leh was a pleasure.You guys are doing a fantastic job out there….keep it up !!!A BIG THANK you from all of us for making our Dream-Ladakh come true!!Best Regards Kaushik.

Awesome adventure, special people
We had a universally excellent experience with the whole team at Dreamland and we cannot recommend them highly enough. They were efficient, friendly, cheerful, informative, responsive and everything went exactly according to plan - which has not been our experience with other operators in India.
We booked our trek from Australia and via email exchanges were able to work out the best plan for our family (we have 2 boys aged 9 and 10 years old). All of the team were great from the guys who picked us up at the airport to Javeed, the owner. We did a 4-day trek including a 4,900m pass (Stok La) and the team (guide, cook, assistant cook, pony guy) were very cool, from the 6am wake-up cup of tea delivered to our tent, to the delicious meals each night. They were particularly generous to the kids, making sure that they had suitable food, playing cards with them, chatting and joking, as well as pointing out things of interest along the way.
Back in Leh, after the trek, one of our boys got a stomach bug he couldn't shake easily, and needed to see a doctor. Although we were no longer their responsibility, both Javeed and our guide (Achuk) came with us and helped negotiate our way to a doctor who spoke English. They were genuinely concerned and keen to ensure that Matt got the attention he needed.
We all had a fabulous, memorable experience in a spectacular part of the world, mostly as a result of the cheerful attention, professionalism and local knowledge of the Dreamland team. We would recommend them to anyone and many operators in more developed parts of the world could learn from their example.

"The beauty of the nature and people were so Pure and Raw"
This trek was one of the best experiences of my life. I have had many adventurous experiences across the world, but the this was unique. The customer service was outstanding. The team at Dream Ladakh helped us book out trek from Australia- they were informative, helpful, easy to communicate with, and directed us to choose the right trek with the small amount of time we had. We were picked up from the airport free of charge, taken care of at the office while they so calmly too care of sorting out the most suitable accommodation for the few nights before our trek. Naturally we had altitude sickness kicking in- but drinks and snacks provided we soon felt much calmer ourselves. The team are friendly and kind and go out of their way to help you with any questions you have and offer help where ever they can. The actual trek itself was PURE MAGIC. This part of the world is so pure and untouched, the nature, the people, the whole experience. It was hard work over our Markha Valley 8 day trek, but with an excellent and experienced guide who spoke good English, was super fit, full of knowledge, and such a genuine kind person, it made it very safe and enjoyable- even when climbing 5,200m.
As vegans we had no trouble at all with the right food be provided, with a great cook. So much food was available for us. The tents and equipment provided where in great condition and we were always warm and dry. The horses and donkey which carried all the gear were well fed and cared for by the pony man. They all looked very happy and healthy compared to some of the others horses we saw along the way.
Dream Ladakh were professional, have fantastic knowledge and experience, but what I liked the most is how trustworthy they were!!! Good for: adventure, All tourists, hiking trekking walking, Fit people of all ages, amazing nature

For the second time in 3 years when we asked Dreamland Trek & Tour to set up a "customised" 10-day trekking in the Markha valley for the 2 of us and our 13-year old daughter on horse very professionally, we contacted them without hesitating for a 12-day Lamayuru-Stok trek including Stok Kangri climbing in 2011. Once again we both appreciated their management team quality of service and constant availability together with the professionalism, efficiency and friendliness of the team during the trek: guide, cook, poneyman and mountainguide for the summit. Equipment, itinerary and camping places choices were excellent without speaking of the quality and freshness of Indian meals carefully prepared by a young Nepalese cook which added to our daily delights as icing on the cake!

My name is Martin Gabarain, i am from Spain. I have been several times in the Himalayas and Tibet; Nepal, Bhutan....and on the last two years i have visited Ladakh, with my family and friends.I have a certain experience with treks and staff and i can assert that Dreamladakh (Dreamland Trek and Tour) is a very good agency and is able to deal very well with all kind of difficulties that can arise on a trek. We first did a trek trough Zanskar and all the material was exellent, the guide very kind and taking care of everithing, and so it was the rest of the crew and the cook. This year we stayed in Ladakh and allthough the inconveniences created by the terrible flood that parcialy assolated the country, they were able to offer us a pleasant stay. I can recomend this agency to my friends and i am sure that they will be also satisfied
Excellent Tour Company Operator - Flexible, Honest. Use them
Lyn Michaud Recommends November 21, 2010
My wife and I had opportunity to use Dreamland Trek&Tour during a month in Ladakh. Javeed and his staff were most helpful. We organized our tour over the internet due to recommendations from other Canadians. Javeed met us at the airport and ensured we were well looked after throughout our trip including accommodation, guides, tour drivers, pony boys - in fact the lot! We did change our trekking schedule and Javeed met the challenge, was flexible, and as a result we also squeezed in a trip across Khardung La into the Nubra Valley after our trip up the Markha and into Rupshu. We enjoyed Leh, our trek and sightseeing journeys to a very interesting land with many excellent gompa's combined with a rich cultural heritage. Dreamland kept us well physically as we went to altitude and we were pleased with their approach to the environment in Ladahk. We found Javeed and his staff to be friendly and helpful throughout. There are many tour operators in Leh, but Dreamland stands out as a professional, honest, competent and well run company.

To all at Dreamland Trek and Tour………….thank you for a wonderful time here over the past two weeks. We arrived the day of the flooding and landslides during the night and while we were unable to undertake the Marka valley trek when we planned ………. We appreciated the care and attention shown by all at your company which allowed us to enjoy so many other wonderful aspects of Leh and surrounding areas. Therefore our initial disappointment of not being able to do the trek was not an issue. We were also able to go to the Nubra Valley as planned in our itinerary. Unlike Pakistan the rain and consequent flooding was a very unusual one off occurrence. Also unlike the floods in Pakistan the water has not lingered around and Leh is fortunate to not have experienced any associated health issues as the climate is so dry. Over the past days the trekking routes have been gradually opened and we were even able to fit in a great three day trek in the Marka Valley before flying home. We envy the people now arriving in Leh to trek as they will be able to complete their intended itineraries . We look forward to returning to Leh next year and completing the Marka Valley Trek with your company.
