From over 1000s of feedback, we have chosen a few in order to capture the bulk of emotions and suggestion by our dear customers. We must humbly submit that hundreds of people have shaped NALS directly as well as indirectly through their feedback and suggestions.

We have received over 19000 customers (as of 01 Sep 2016) and many of them have given invaluable suggestions and guidance. Thousands of feedback on our programs have reinforced our beliefs and value systems. Without all these inputs and guidance NALS wouldn't be what it has become today. We take this opportunity to thank them for all their contributions, suggestions, encouragement and motivation.

We had a great time in Manali. We enjoyed the scenic beauty, the river, the hills and also the company of your team. The accommodation and food was very very good. We had a very relaxing time. The Beas river is the heart of Manali and it was so pleasant to see it flowing with so much of speed and noise. We should bring our kids here once the new roads are constructed (I was really scared of the Volvo bus travelling on a single lane at 60km/hour speed at the edge of the roads on the cliffs)

We are back at work, but the photos are there to remind us the wonderful time we had.

Thank you very much for organising everything so well.

We really had a great two days of enriching experiences that helped us re-discover ourselves. We are revved up with new knowledge and skills both on professional and personal front.
Feel glad to mention that NALS programme is focused, scrupulously planned and seamlessly executed under your leadership and able support team.

As an outcome of this programme, we see our team becoming cohesive, motivational and directional. Both the physical and mental sessions were stimulating and made us realise how important it is for us teachers to become role models. Specially to mention the understanding of the four quadrants helped us to identify our strengths and weaknesses and in future will help us to identify the students who need our help.

Thanking you for the effective time that we spent at NALS.

Really wonderful in taking up the Leadership Camp. I sincerely owe my gratitude to the core team who had taught the skills of a real leader. They motivated the children, conducted brainstorming sessions, provided value based learning, sharpening the senses and motivated them to be a better personality. We are happy about the food served and safety provided by NALS. We will be visiting every year for the overall development of the children.Wishing you NALS all the best for your future endeavours.

To: Harvard Alumni Travel Program Administrator:

As a Harvard alum I greatly appreciate our Alumni Travels program. If I might suggest adding a High Adventure opportunity to our program...

Last fall my company sponsored a High Adventure Trek in the Himalayan Mountains in India for a Team Building - Leadership experience program. For many of the 30 people that attended, this was a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience. From the shear beauty of the landscape, the exhilarating feelings of hiking across glaciers, the bonding between individuals, the new connections made, the adventure and inspiration, the fantastic food, and the hardships/joy of the outdoor trekking adventure, it was truly amazing and memorable. A sightseeing tour with an outdoor adventure trek and lifetime memories.

This was made possible through the professional and masterful oversight of our outfitter, the National Adventure Leadership School (NALS) of India. They provided the entire itinerary, all of the technical gear, porters for the heavy equipment, all of the “scrumptious" meals, and unrelenting motivation and inspiration for all. The leader of their group is former India Military and understands how to manage, lead, motivate, inspire and entertain a group. In fact, we had such a memorable experience that we have already booked again for this August 2017 for a trek in Kashmir.

As a US based company that owns a subsidiary company in India, we are fortunate to have access to such a fine tour operator and experience in India.

I would like to share this experience and provide the same opportunity to the entire Harvard Alumni Community. I do this without hesitation and without any financial incentive whatsoever. Rather, I sincerely believe that:

a) a high adventure program should be a part of our Harvard Alumni Travels;
b) that including a Trek with NALS would be well appreciated by our alumni, customized to their needs, and;
c) a NALS adventure would be extremely well executed resulting in a positive experience for all.

Please take this into consideration for your 2017 planning and beyond.

With my highest recommendation, you may reach the tour operator NALS at:

Dear Seshadri, we express our appreciation and happiness to NALS for the excellent conduct of the camp during our visit to Coonoor Campus. Also grateful for the extra care taken for my son with special needs to make his visit enjoyable.

The accommodation and food have been excellent. We have enjoyed the long treks, low rope walk .The cultural also was enjoyable with my son trying to express his singing skills. He also enjoyed the bonding with NALS team.We hope during our next visit he will be able to try other events. Apologies in case of any hardship to anyone caused due to our son .

BIG Thanks to all the NALS staff for their enthusiasm and wish them all the energy to keep it up and take it forward. Also it was also wonderful to hear from you lot of your personal experiences and anecdotes which will definitely help us in improving our outlook towards life.

Hope to visit again soon.

The adventurous trip to Coonoor which was arranged by our School with the support of NALS was really a time of learning for the students. It was an amazing journey which exceeded our students’ expectations in every respect.Students were enchanted by nature’s beauty.This adventurous trip made children a better athlete,a better friend, a good leader, self reliant and tougher physically and mentally. They enjoyed a lot and its sweet memories will remain in them for ever. Thanks to the NALS team for making this trip so special. We thank you for your exceptional service and professionalism. Expecting the same co-ordination for the next trip.

   PKN, Chennai (Father of Special child) said..

Excellent time spent. Thought it will be a normal adventure activity. But the changes in our behaviour after this activity will be carried over through our life. I sincerely thank the NALS crew - professionally competent - but their care, concern and understanding makes the difference. Accommodation was good and apt for the activity; food was excellent, we felt that we were eating at home. Will surely make the trip again. The difference they made to my younger daughter (with suspected dyslexia) is immense and we will make future trips for her enjoyment.

I am German and joined the NALS Summer Camp, because my brother is doing an exchange program in Coimbatore and wanted me to be with him. I thought: nice idea, a fun camp, doing some climbing, some walking, being in Nature and a cooler climate. But, when I finally arrived, I realised that this camp consists more than that. You also develop your own strengths, gain confidence and become more aware of yourself. Through high level teaching which includes fun games / challenges the kids learn a lot about themselves and their environment. Of course, the camp consists of basic climbing, walking, seeing nature and more. The food that you get is amazing, even for me, as a German college student.

All in all, kids learn to see their own strengths and learn to through activities. They explore and develop their own confidence in such a way that they will also increase thier physical health through adventure. And the teachers are amazing.

For me, as a German, this is a very surprising fact that such a modern approach in a huge country with more than a billion people, who mostly are traditional, can succeed.

Definitely a recommendation for every parent and their kids.
