They say that the journey matters more than the destination. Well, Plan the Unplanned had got it all covered for us! Kurinjal trek during Ganesh Chaturthi was my second trek with PTU, and it was indeed very unique. Be it the food, the homestay, the itinerary , the travel, the destinations, the adventure activities, the trek leads, the energy, the life in each one of the team, was alarmingly and remarkably high, at all times! PTU focuses on authentic experiences! The traditional style food, the genuine joy of the celebration, the trails for treks, the scenic spots, the view points, all of it was so beautifully covered and planned in a subtle way, and easily executed with utmost joy, passion and lots of dedication. I would describe it as an immense experience, rich with the moments, and journey that was equally adventurous and amazing!

I went for Kurinjal Peak Trek. The trek was very well organized. The trek group was also really awesome. The quality of the accomodation, food, transportation provided was really good. Even the trekleads Nagashree and Srinivas were very helpful and supportive. Also the co-founder Jatin also joined us for first day of the travel. They all were really down to earth, friendly and were always available to help us. They were really focused on the safety of the people who travel with them and they did their best to keep us all together and safe.
I recommend this group to all the people who are looking to really enjoy a worth paying trek. I gurantee..you travel with them and you will never regret it.. !!

This was my first solo trek and Plan the Unplanned did not disappoint. They have an inspiring and passionate team. I joined PTU for Kurinjal trek and it was a beautiful monsoon trek with a good homestay for accomodation and an insanly good waterfall for a combination. The experience was not limited to trekking, We as a group bonded over icebreaker session, games, music and Dance. I ll love to join them again for other treks.
