    Thank you TLOW for an awesome experience. Met amazing people and had a great time with everyone. Hope you guys continue with more such great trips. Hope to see you’ll soon.

    It was a fun filled experience. The journey was great. I came here knowing only 3 persons but ended up becoming friends with everyone. All of whom I’m sure to keep contact with. I loved the way TLOW made us acquainted with the place. They showed us the best eateries, the best places to buy t-shirts and the best place to buy kawaa. This we would have otherwise only known by trial and error. The travel although unexpected at times, was always comfortable.
    The stays was fantastic, the bedding arrangement was comfortable. Looking forward to another trip with TLOW at the nearest opportunity. Thank you TLOW

    It was a trip that I was never a part of. I always made thousand plans for a Ladakh trip but it did not happen. So I forced myself into a group of strangers and now I am going back with 13 AMAZING FRIENDS and hell lot of memories.
    This trip started with a fuss but now ending with the best feeling. Thank you TLOW for taking all our bullshit and laughing at our madness. After finishing college. I wanted a perfect change and if turned out to be better than PERFECT.
    I will miss you guys. Thank you and lots of love.

    It was one of my best trips I have ever had. Though we started with a lot of differences and arguments but as time passed things just got better and now I guess its one of the most memorable trip I have ever had.
    The best part of the trip was Tur-Tuk , haven’t seen a place better than that. Thanks a lot for all the fun will always remember this trip.

  6. Saloni

    Ladakh was a place I wanted to come to since years. We were all excited since we booked this trip 6 months ago. Well thanks a million for the crazy experience for this trip. We made many friends, did crazy stuff , hope to make many more trips with TLOw.

  7. Vandana J

    Well thanks to you guys for making this Ladakh trip happen for me. I was planning for a budget trip but couldn’t find one. But the day I found you guys I was on cloud nine. It just made me very happy meeting new people and seeing new places. I’ve always loved travelling and with TLOW it has just enhanced my love for travel. I am going back with a lot memories and plenty of new friends.

  8. Zinnia Ray

    Ladakh had been on my bucket list for a long long time. And thanks to TLOW it has finally happened. I had the best time. TLOW you’ll are doing something really wonderful. Giving those who cannot afford travelling to places like these an opportunity to travel. I cannot wait to travel with TLOW again.

  9. Daniel Pinto

    Thank you for this trip. The memories of this trip will stay with me for the rest of my natural life.

    I still remember the first time I called up to enquire for Ladakh and finally my wish has been fulfilled. Have travelled with you guys for 4 trips now and beyond no doubt each and every trip has been spectacular. Ladakh was one of my dream destination and am glad i could fulfill it with a wonderful experience with your help. Ladakh the place is really beautiful and I have no words to describe it, but what made it more special was the effort and planning put by you guys in making this trip memorable. I really felt like I travelled the road less travelled when we visited Tur Tuk and panamik lake (nyarap tso).
    The homestays, home made food was amazing and the local bus ride and the dorm stays gave me a true backpacking experience. Thank you Sherwin for helping me fulfill my dream in the most awesome way ever. Plan to complete the whole mountain stretch with TLOw. Thank you

    A trip to Ladakh had been on my mind for the longest time, maybe since the time I had heard of the Kargil war and seen Barkha Dutt covering the news of the war. My ideal trip would have been from Srinagar, however due to restrictions at work I could not manage that long a leave. Besides the friends i came with were comfortable with this trip. Before I headed to this trip id heard Ladakh is an unpredictable land, I saw and experienced this on the trip. This trip had many ‘firsts’ for me….touching snow, snowfall experience, highest motorable road, beautiful lakes etc. All in all this is one of my most memorable trips ever!
    Thanks TLOw for ecperience!
    Sherwin , you have a long long way to go!

  12. Wilfred Louis

    A spectacular trip that allowed me to live among the giants of the Trans Himalayas. The highlights of the trips would be ‘Turtuk’, ‘nyarap Tso’, and ‘Pangong Tso’! and the nubra valley drive.
    What i loved about TLOW is the fluidity of arrangements and the improvisations. Kudos to Sherwin for that. I have also been fortunate to be travelling with a great group who were game to make everything an adventure- including the 22 hour stopover in Darchu and the student ‘rasta roko’ in Bogdong.
    Thank you Sherwin for making this trip enjoyable and memorable. Hoping to join you guys in the future on some other trips.
    TLOW keep those feet moving and keep on travelling..cheers

    Ladakh was a dream destination since a long time finally it came true because of ‘TLOW’. I was very excited for the trip and it was my first backpacking experience ever. But the entire experience of the trip was amazing and very different from all the trips I have been to so far.
    Starting from Manali to Leh the homestay at different places was a memorable experience. I got to taste local food, loved the dinner that we had together, star watching were few experiences to name off. Places like tur-tuk , Panamik lake were mersmorizing places of all. Though we were destined to wait during our journey due to road blocks and protests the entire group help thier calm.
    Sherwin knows exactly how a backpacking trip should be. Thier passion and love for travelling and exploring new places made me develop more interest in backpacking trips.

    Ladakh was has always been my dream destination and the fact that TLOW is providing all the facilities at a much cheaper rate and made it possible for me to enjoy and book a trip with them. It has been an real amazing experience to travel with Divya and Sherwin. What i like about them is that they are so passionate about travelling and exploring remote places and making travellers like us enjoy the scenic beauty at an affordable rate. They have done a lot of hard work and have good knowledge about the places they take us too.
    It has been a wonderful experience in terms of living in the heart of nature, experiencing the stars at night and the amazing mountains of different structures and even colour. The accommodations they have provided us in terms of location cleanliness, space is real worth for the people who are backpacking for the first time, you must travel with these guys as they have taken into consideration the minute necessities of the travellers backpcking with them.

    The moment i spotted the trip on TLOW website, I knew i wanted to do it. Firstly because it fit my budget, secondly because it was a backpacking trip. I came with an open mind and Ladakh lives up to all the hype. Its absolutely pristine beauty. The peace and serenity i felt when I visited the lakes, the villages I just cannot explain. Tur-Tuk was my favorate places in terms of stay and locals i interacted with. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole travel experience.

  16. Steffi

    I have followed the activities of TLOW since a few months and that is what made me come for a trip with them. I must say they fulfill all the promises they give thier travellers. The only reason i came for this trip all alone is because i knew it was with TLOW and it was worth it. It was the best decision ever I made. It was my first trip ever and i can say it was an out of the world experience!! and am sure this was only because of the sincere hard work of Sherwin, and the TLOW team. Though your team is very new, everything was well organised and well taken care off.
    Keep doing what your doing because people like us need TLOW.

  17. Michelle Fernandes

    Visiting new places is one thing I really like to do, when my sister send me the link, I was thrilled. Coz Ladakh is one place i wanted to visit. It really lives up to the expectation and the hype. The terrain is breath taking. The highlight of the whole trip were the:
    1. stay at Tur-Tuk village-the peace and simplicity of the place was bliss
    2. Pangong lake- was just breath taking
    Being my first backpacking trip, to add to it in Ladakh , the experience was wonderful and cant be explained

  18. Jack

    Hi Sherwin, I just can’t believe how you guys travel for so less. I mean Rs. 1400 gets spent in an evening’s shopping or a weekend’s lunch, movie and coffee. I guess if I ever get a chance to travel with people like you, may be I will realize how to travel in the least expensive of ways.
