Was just doing it to be with my wife. 8 days trip, not one day was the same. Final trek was a 2800 meters climb. Never thought I could do it. I walked, I huffed and puffed, I crawled and I made it to the top!! What I saw up there was something I can’t explain in words…. When I came down the mountain, I felt like I was born to do it. I shall see you soon my friend!! Reply Vasantti K September 25, 2016 Firstly, thank you so much for the wonderful experience with TLOW. This being my first trip/trek kind of solo trip. I totally loved it. I wish to have more and more trips with TLOW. In fact, you gave me confidence to travel alone. I could make new friends, new experiences, good memories for a lifetime. I envy you for travelling all the time and living near your dreams, this has been my dream too. Wish you all the happiness and more success for TLOW. Hope to see you soon in some travel channels, become more and more famous. Keep travelling!!! Reply Divya reddy September 25, 2016 This being my first backpacking trip I cannot be much happier than this. First backpacking, first trek, first camp all my firsts. I absolutely enjoyed this from day 1. Like I always wanted to talk to new people and open up a little more, with this trip I think I did that. I loved all the freedom I got here. No rules, there is no boss, I sometimes forgot that you are the organizer. You were more a friend, more like one of even after visiting the places previously with all the enthusiasm. You absolutely love what you do and we get to fell that too. Would love to be more in your trips and travel more. Reply Akshata Ghule September 25, 2016 Now that’s what I call a real and raw backpacking trip. Triund for me was one of a kind experience. Thank you so much for motivating me for the hike and otherwise as well. And of course il never forget you for your sarcasm. Had an amazing time listening to all the gyaan you gave us. Thank you. Reply Priyanka Wadhwaney September 25, 2016 I almost didn’t come for the trip as my husband backed out. But, I am so so glad that I decided to make it. It had been an amazing experience. I looked at Himachal in a different way now all thanks to TLOW, I’ll be coming for more trips with you for sure. Lots of love. Taking back not just the experience, but also great new friends. Cheers! Reply Nazia sultan September 25, 2016 My first backpacking trip and the best one. It’s takes lots of effort to make it perfect when you have an audience but you (Sherwin) are just the best, scrapped neatly to look like a perfect diamond. Thank you for being a great host and awesome entertainer. Hope TLOW grows and conquers the world. ALL THE BEST!!! Reply Elliot Dsouza September 25, 2016 TLOW never disappoints! My second trip with them was just as good as the first, looking forward to the third…. And many more. Reply Gayatri Kavishwar September 25, 2016 I was about to go and book my flights to Dharamshala for a solo trip when I came across Sherwin’s page “TLOW”. The exclusive blueprint of the trip, inclusion of Parashar Lake and the approach of the whole trip motivated me to sign up with TLOW and I am really glad that I did. From the picturesque bus trip from Amanda to Rewalsar with the background of yellow flowers and misty mountains, to the actual trek to the misty mountains to Triund, I’ve had many highlights for the trip. I met a bunch of like minded people and made good friends by the end of the trip. Today is the last day and I am already looking forward to the next trip of mine. Reply Sonam Malik August 22, 2016 Hello, Nice post. I am hoping to be on this trip soon with you guys.
