NALS does a fantastic job of executing their plan. As someone who has been in services delivery for all of my professional career, I’m very impressed with both your planning and the execution to that plan. From the time we landed at your camp in Manali till the departure I was able to observe first hand how your team executed to your original plan. Dinanath is a very solid trek leader and an able project manager. His management of the trek, his team and the customers is very commendable. He deserves credit for a large part of this successful trip.
I cannot fault any aspect of the trek or the execution of your plan. Perhaps the only area I thought differently was the final camp and if it could have been at a higher altitude as opposed to where we were in the Beas valley. On reflection it was AMS that hit me around 14000 ft. and while you motivated me to keep going, I was wondering if we had camped maybe at about 12000 ft. or so, I could have acclimatized better. But you are the better judge on this.
My last thoughts are on the motivation you provided and the constant encouragement you gave for the final 1000 ft. or so, without which I wouldn’t have made it to the top. Thank you for the push, I think you are an excellent coach who can bring out the last mile effort in people
I look forward to my next trip with NALS, definitely next year.
