Dawa Tshering and his company Hidden Paradise Adventure Tours gave me the trip of a lifetime in the mountains of Sikkim. I was on the Dzongri-Goechela trek in western Sikkim. I had trekked twice previously in Nepal, and this was my first time in Sikkim. The trek was everything I had hoped it would be and more. The guide Bashant spoke good English, and was kind and attentive to our needs. All the porters were friendly and cheerful. Meals were well prepared and adjusted for personal tastes. Every morning coffee and hot water was brought to my tent. Bashant led me in the dark with a flashlight up to the overlook in Dzongri to see the first morning light strike Mt. Kachenjunga, a very spiritual moment. The hotels arranged in Gangtok and Yuksom were very good. Dawa was always where he said he would be, when he said he would be there. All permits were handled properly by Dawa and Bashant. Transport to and from the airport at Bogdagra was on time and reliable. It was a consistent and dependable trekking company. They made it a very special trip that I cherish.
