Had my first trek with PTU ON 26TH FEB
IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST TIMES OF MY LIFE
THE TREK LEADERS JD AND KAVYA WERE GREAT... AND ENTHUSIASTIC
THEY BROUGHT THE UNIT AS A WHOLE
EVERYTHING WAS ON POINT, THE TREK, THE ACTIVITIES AND EVERYTHING
I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND PTUread more
I have planned lot of trekking previously with my friends but it didn't happen somehow but atlast It has been achieved... with PTU.
PTU is very well organised and everything is on time without any delays.
Last but not least trek leads Jai and Kavya were excellent and awesome, they encouraged whenever we are down and took care of every one during the entire trip.
Looking for lot more trips with PTU in future.read more
I'm so glad I went for the Kudremukh trek with Plan The Unplanned. It was really well organized, and the trek leads... were very nice and helpful. PTU also came up with numerous fun ways for the entire group to interact and get to know each other, which made the experience all the more memorable! I just came back and already want to go on another trek with them :)read more
As a traveler, I look forward to feeling the spirit of a place. I personally think it's hard to do that when you travel... with a trekking group, but PTU did a great job getting us as close to that goal as possible.
I visited Gokarna with PTU recently. They kept it a very easy going and relaxed trek. Just how one would want to spend time on a beach. Kavya and Jaidev, our trek leads, were exactly the right people to lead this trek. Amicable, inclusive and good coordinators. Great job guys!read more
I'd been to Gokarna on 26th with PTU. Very well planned itinerary, amazing trek leads. Would definitely recommend to... people who are looking to go on solo trips too. Special thanks to Kavya and Jai, my trek leads!!read more
I was part of the kumar parvat trek offered by Plan The Unplanned last weekend. I must say, it was one of the most... mesmerizing experiences that I have ever had. Whether it be the night trek to the summit (kp) or the stop at the jungle spring, it is one of the best treks one can ever ask for. Though it is not an easy Trekk for the faint hearts but with the right lead, which for me was under Mr. Shivam Sarma, one can easily reach the summit. The whole trip was well planned and very equipped. This trek does really take the saying 'no man left behind' way too seriously, one can count on the trek lead to complete the whole trip no matter what. Kuddos to the whole team and the companions I gather, I can gladly say it was the best trek that anybody can bargain for in Karnataka despite being the toughest trek out there.read more
It was my first trek with PTU. Everything was organised well and also trek leads made sure we are doing... fine while trekking. Amazon experience overall. Had activities to mingle with trek group. Will definitely plan for bigger adventures soon again with PTU.read more
Have been to Gokarna trek with PTU as a solo traveler, had so much fun with the group. Special thanks to Ajay and... Aashish our trek leads who made it happen. 10/10 the best weekend getaway.read more

I had been on Tadiyandamol trek. Best ever feeling to have done the trek with great support from Harshitha and Akshay... and everyone in the trek troop.
Would definitely come back again. Thank you PTU.read more
Had gone to Gokarna beach trek and camping as a solo traveller. The entire trip was fun. Very well planned itenary and... amazing trek leaders. They made us feel like we all knew each other. Would definitely go for more treks with these guys. :)read more

I did Gokarna beach trek with PTU. Fun filled adventure guaranteed with these folks.
I went on the Gokarna beach trek. I had a wonderful time and made some really amazing friends along the way. Highly... recommended!read more
My trek to Kodachadri is my first trek with PTU and this shall remain as one of the best memories to cherish. Every... part of the trip was curated to be a thrilling experience and the itenary is the best out there. The thrill, the connect and the experience is surreal.read more
It was my first excursion with "Planned the Unplanned(PTU)" to Kudremukh with a group of 12 people among whom I knew... only one. No doubt the place is amazing but the experience adds weight to what extent we enjoy the place. Undoubtedly, PTU made this experience memorable by conducting some ice breakers, games, dancing, singing with the aim of keeping all of us stay united. I personally feel that below are must to keep up the entertainment.
1. Good leads (5/5): Prakruti and Jatin joined from PTU. Their zest energize everyone.
2. Food(5/5): PTU never compromised on this. We were given hot and yummy idli, chapati, channa curry, tomato bath, Puliogare, bajji, etc.. (This is a long list)
3. Travel(5/5): We were given a good vehicle with an experienced driver.
I strongly recommend "PTU" to all who are looking to explore places but are in need of groups.read more
I had a great experience in my very first trek to Kodachadri with PTU
Best experience filled with fun, excitement,... relaxation and strangers who became friends
Food at homestay was great.
Trek lead and sweeper were amazing
Highly recommended!!read more
Most amazing experience on the Kudremukh trek. Very well organised and planned. They also plan the whole thing very... nicely so as to keep all participants engaged while respecting their solo time. It is very important for solo travellers who are looking for “me” time, but still want to meet and interact with new people. Everything from the” Book voyage” email to the surprise ending ceremony is well thought out. Jatin and Prakruthi are amazing trek leaders. 10/10 would recommend and go with them againread more
The trip was best in its own kind. Experiencing the trek, waterfalls and beaches all together in 2 days was just... wonderful. The company i had just made the trip one beautiful experience. Everyone just mingled so easily and im glad to have made new friends.
About the trek: Kodachadri is a beautiful trekking site with hidlumane falls as icing on the cake. The view from the top is just treat to eyes. A must visit spot.
The second day to the beaches was another sun-kissed experience. The unplanned visit to St. Mary's island was the most soothing experience.
About the trek leads: Oshin and Shivam..the most friendly, kind and generous, super fun people. They've been supportive throughout the trek. It never felt that we've met each other for the first time. They've been full of energy, always entertaining and amazing trek leads. Glad to have met them.
This, the first ever trek of its own kind with plan the unplanned will be cherished always!!read more
Went to Gokarna with PTU (Plan The Unplanned). The three words to describe the trip briefly will be: INDELIBLE,... INEFFABLE, AND INCREDIBLE.
The whole experience was truly magnificent — the trek leaders, the other folks, and the places were the best I could ask for.
The serenity at the beaches and the beautiful views were just breathtaking and mesmerizing.
The trek leaders, Jolly and Gayathri, were highly skilled and jovial. They constantly kept our energies up by arranging good games and campfire at beach, recounting good stories and facts, and taking us to the best and hidden spots (Sunset Point) of Gokarna. The aura at Vibhuti Falls and the Mangrove forest was also awe-inspiring.
A big kudos to PTU and the lovely folks who joined the trip. From bantering and pulling each other's legs to helping one another and sharing personal stories — everyone had a ball during the 2-day trip.
Really can't wait to go somewhere again with PTU and my new folks/friends.read more

Budget friendly, exciting, experienced trek leads
Ajay Singh Bhadoriya
Very well organised and exceeds all the expectations.
Thanks Akshay and Hitha for organising a memorable trip.
Plan The Unplanned team is one of those groups that will make sure you thoroughly enjoy the trip that you are taking... with them. The rest stops for washrooms are fairly neat and clean which is of utmost importance while travelling specially for girls! The homestay at Gokarna is also very beautiful and clean. Food at the homestay is also healthy and tasty enough considering a trek. Tents are provided by the homestay to have a different experience of stay and the tents are set up at beachside.
Overall it was an amazing experience to go on a trek with PTU as the trek leads are also experienced and knowledgeable enough to tell you about the history of the place. They managed the whole lot in a very professional manner. Recommend going in treks with them.read more
Teja Goud Thamatam
Have done Gokarna trek on 22nd Jan... Shivam the trek lead was extremely energetic and very well coordinated a group of... 20+ ppl. Another trek lead Jolly (a.k.a Man of Stories) had set the tone with all the background stories about the place and different spots along the trek... The fact that this is my 2nd trek with PTU says how satisfied I am with the way they plan and execute every little thing... Stay, food and transport definitely stands out... And I have neither been paid for this review nor have they sponsored me any of my 2 treksread more
Great trekking experience in the wild
The trek leads were very supportive and encouraging.
Loved this lot !
Amazing experience which possibly explains why I go with the group 2nd time (1st time Gokarna trek n 2nd is skandagiri... sunrise trek). Love the way everything is planned and arranged. Amazing and Joyful trek leads Abhay and Prakriti to help us with everything😀
Looking forward for my next trip with PTU. Thanks guys 😀😀read more
Worth for money..trek leads were awesomme..service is good
Aishwarya Vijaya Kumar
This was my first time with PTU, experience was pretty good, we had been to kumara parvatha. We all started on a Friday... night. The bus journey was pretty cool knowing each other through different activities, later we reached kukke early so we got enough time to rest and freshen up. Than we had breakfast and started off. Two for the treak leads went off in front and one was at the back, there were three kinds of ppl fast paced, medium paced and slow paced, there were times wen ppl In between was left alone with no trek lead, and din know if we were on the right path or no. But yet that was an experience too. Later we reached battaramane around 10 and left to trek further. Some of the ppl in our group couldn't reach there on time so they couldn't go up that day may be coz of no proper communication. Later that night we were told we would have camp fire but that din happen as well. Later the next day ppl who were left out went up till kumara parvatha and came back ... Than we decended from batarra mane and came back down had our lunch and started our journey back to Bangalore, this was a pretty good journey, we played games in bus, talked gost stories, sang songs and finally said bye and left.
Talking about our trek leads SHIVAM was one of them at first I thought he was rude and sarcastic later I realized he was the sweetest cute and an amazing company, he is a bundle of joy and gives u only good vibes, and can talk u through anything. Well if u have him in ur team u r lucky. Ur trip or trek is gonna be funn. And he's got some great dance moves Soo don miss them 😂😉
The other one was JAIDEV aka JD he might
not talk a lot, but he s got soo many stories and he doesn't tell untill u ask sooo if he is with u don't stop questioning. And yea his cute smile and the way he says "5 more minutes ashte" is obviously an inspiration to go further. And ppl he has a great voice so u know he can sing for u too. 😎😁
Our another trek lead was MEDHA she was a sweetheart too, she has a lotta stories travel or trek stories too. She has got an amazing voice Soo u know she can be an amazing company😊😁. I couldn't spend a lotta time with her, as she trekked with the second group. So looking forward to see her and the other guys too in fruther treks or trips with PTU to know more and have lotta fun.read more
Well this was my first trek to #Gokarna with #PTU and i must say this is not the last. My experience of trekking and... fun with #plantheunplanned team is of next level. The team was so friendly that i never felt i met these guys for the first time. I am in love with the management they have done for food, accomodation, team leading, safety etc.
See you soon guys .....#plantheunplanned team😍😃
#food sharing as a family
This is the best trek I ever had
The trek was great. All your services were really good.
Trekking is what I am doing from more than 22 years & I love it. Had done many trekkings with different friend groups... with different age groups. Had been trekking with Plan The Unplanned (PTU) group from last year & it has been a wonderful experience with them. Did Kodachadri with them last year which was a great experience & this year post Covid this month did Kumara Parvatha, one of the toughest treks in South India. Right from on-time pickup before trip till drop to the same point after trip was rightly managed by all the 3 trek leads. Their knowledge about the whole trek was really impressive & their energy level across trip was exceptional. Apart from being motivating all to complete the task which was very very challenging, they ensured everyone reach the forest base checkpost safely was commendable. Homestay was very good with basic amenities like, cot, bed, hot water options all the time & mainly good options in food. Bonfire along with some games was an added advantage post trekking :). Also other people gelled with us very well along the trek. Local guide along with our trek leads co-ordination was good which helped our team very well as we were almost 20 people. I really recommend PTU for others as well & will continue to be associated with them in future as well. They can improve in aspects like providing Juices & Energy bars while travelling. Overall it was an awesome & fantastic experience with the PTU.read more

Hi..this was my first long trek and I am glad that I associated my selves with Plan The Unplanned..the trip started... with on time pick up from the specified location and the itenary was discussed and followed as per the plan which was commendable..we had 3 very good leaders..who were inspiring, they were very knowledgable and guiding the team all along during the trek and the trip..home stay was good and I recommend to have more options on the food menu to energise the team..I am looking forward for more associations with PTU and recommend PTU to others who are willing to explore the mountains...Narendraread more

Freedom of exploring.. efforts toward enjoyment.. it just feels like we went with some old friends

This was my first solo trip. I chose kudremukh for the starter. It was a great team filled with so much fun and... support. No second thoughts just go with it.
The trek lead Medha Bhat is an amazing lady, she is funny, kind and compassionate.
She is motivating and comforting throughout the trek. And she is like a 5 year old kid full of energy and excitement.
This experience of mine with PTU made me wanting to go solo more and more. 😊read more
Kudremukh : was my first trek with a trip operator..I never thought it would turn out soo well...🤗Was wonderful and... well planned,we got time for everything....n trek lead's (medha) energy and enthusiasm is really motivational..She kept the energy high n made us feel comfortable throughout the trip..The home stay ..Food..Were awesome..Overall the trip finishes with lot of fun filled n memorable moments..I would definitely recommend PTU 👌🏻👍🏻read more
It's the best trek troop I went with
I loved their Gokarna Trek! Trek Lead Prakriti was great- she told us the important stuff. Stuff I'd otherwise take for... granted. She said, Gokarna is best enjoyed in the evening and night. This was the first time I saw a bioluminescent beach! Nothing compares to stargazing at 3 am laying down on the beach. She also mentioned that the seafood is really nice, one must try the prawns they serve there. I'd definitely recommend prawns after a day's long trek.
And yes, shes the god I'd worship in Mafia!
Thanks to the lovely people in the trek who made it amazing!!!
PS: More than half the people were solo travellers, and all gelled together well! So one doesnt need company to go on such a trek. Just some time.read more
Well, where do I start? One of THE BEST trek companies I’ve ever been a part of. If you’re planning to trek with #PTU,... don’t think twice!
These guys sure know how to plan a kickass trek, be it in terms of fun, adventure, exploration, knowledge, affordability & so on. I’ve been to 2 treks with #PTU so far (1 day trek to Uttari Betta & 2 days trek to the 2nd highest peak in KAR, Kudremukh) & I’ve only come back with ever lasting memories & friends. ⛰🏕👌🏼
The experience of the trekking with the PTU team is on a whole new level. They always are there for you no matter if you’re a beginner or an advanced trekker. I personally loved the arrangements done in terms of accommodation & food as well. During my Kudremukh trek, I bumped into other trekking companies/groups as well & I could literally tell how much more different & fun we were compared to the rest. 💯🙌🏼
I would also like to mention, as a solo woman traveler, I felt at home with this team. They’re like family & I would tell you not to worry at all if you’re a solo lady travelling like me! 🌸 Safety is rest assured & you’ll meet other fellow ladies too as the group usually has an equal ratio of men:women. Nonetheless, this is really what we are looking for in trek companies!
Kudos to the founder of PTU - Jatin Munvar (@jummpping_jack), who is so talented & passionate about what he does. Grateful to have had him & Shivam as our trek leads to Kudremukh. There’s not 1 moment that any of us didn’t laugh or were bored, they was on top of their game, made sure to give us the best experiences & rest all of it was so smooth! ❤️ A big shout out to Jatin & Shivam for this. 🥰
Already planning the next trek with team PTU! 🤸🏻♀️read more
My first outing with Plan the unplanned, I didn't have much of any expectations from Planned the unplanned other than... the itinerary. But planned the unplanned marks a specific difference with their enthusiastic, and energetic trek Lead (Ms. Prakrathi Kumar) who became a part of the group. I had not seen any other organizers yet.
Gokarna trek, is incomparable to any mountain/hilly terrain, as it offers a totally different experience, the temperature in which you trek, the views you have, also if you have a fun-loving group as I did, it is going to be an amazing experience.
For anything you cannot miss spotting Dolphins, looking at the setting sun turning its surroundings in different shades of orange, looking at the planktons which turn the shore and the waves blue at night and spotting many constellations and counting the shooting stars(i could make 21 wishes ;) )read more
PTU never let's us down, can just blindly book any treks with PTU. The amount of support from trek leads and the... experience you gain is outerworldly I would say.
Recently went on a Kodachadri-trek, that was my 5th Trek. The entire experience was fascinating and adventurous. The trek leads Akshay and Harshitha tagged along with us until we reached the peak. The entire gang was stranger, now we all feel like as if we knew each other for years.read more

A memorable experience, spending the night under the stars, walking by the light of the moon and finishing it off with... the sun peeking from the clouds on a chilly morning. Highly recommended for a quick one day trek! Did the trek with #PlanTheUnplanned, the trek was very well organized.read more
It was my second trek with PTU...Trails in the kodachadri range was awesome...Trek leads Akshay & Harshitha were so... friendly & kept the entertainment on!! thruout!!read more
I loved the experience with plan the unplanned.(kudremukh trek)
Few points that I personally feel which made it so... memorable were
1- Ice breaker session:- they do ice breaker sessions which helped me get along with all my trek mates to get to know them, and have fun along the way.
2-Homestay :- where we stayed was very hygienic and comfortable. They had spare bathrooms so we never had to wait for our turns. Bonfire and the food served was delicious.
3-Trek experience :- Trek leads take care of everything when you are on trails, they make sure nobody is left behind and motivate everyone to make it to the top of the hill.
4- Games :- The trek leads come up with lot of fun games ( after the end of the trek ) which keeps everyone involved and very much fun to be part of.
Taking their transport helps knowing other people on the journey and makes it a better experience.read more
Had an amazing experience with PTU.. Enjoyed every bit of my 2 days with them.. There wasn't a single time that I was... bored.. Trip was entertaining throughout.. Special kudos to trek lead Harshitha for being so energetic, active and motivating us through out the trek and hats off to trek lead Akshay for being an amazing host, entertainer and a friend.read more
Its the only trekkies who made it available to me at the last moment with not even a day to spare, one of the best... experience i had in recent years.read more
I did the Kodachadri trek during the Diwali weekend with Plan The Unplanned(PTU). It was an awesome experience. It... couldn't have gone any better than that. From booking the trip till dropping us off at our respective destinations it was almost perfect.
The trek leaders were great, they pulled together an amazing trip in a challenging environment. I forgot how different the covid era is (which is a testament to the excellence of the trip that they put together). Trek leader was well versed about the trek route and took care of our safety all the way.
Anytime you are first dealing with a travel agency, there is a little bit of concern in the back of your head of what happens if something in the chain falls apart--I very quickly realized that I had no need to stress or worry about anything--everything had gone as expected and the experience is even better than i imagined. As a Travel planner PTU has hassle free booking system and the trek leaders were easy to work with.
I did half a dozen treks with different tour operators and stayed at different homestays. None of those homestays were half as good as one we stayed. The rooms are super clean, washrooms are great. The food is good and the family who provided the accommodation were really welcoming.
The only place I thought it would've gone better was while returning the restaurant we stopped for lunch. The vegetarian food was bad. The fault is not entirely on trek leads though, they followed the feedback from the previous teams. So except for that matter the whole experience was great.

Travelling with @plantheunplanned is an experience. I enjoyed the company and friendship of…your leaders/guides. I have... never experienced travel with leaders who attended to every detail with such dedication. Also, your consistent good humor, wealth of local and historical knowledge left me free to wallow in gorgeous scenery. And I liked the ‘spacing’ of the schedule—always time for individual pursuits after hiking…
This weekend, in the presence of lofty mountains…I have felt renewed by the awesome beauty of KUDREMUKHA region. (With @plantheunplanned)
How kind you have been to all—how respectful and sensitive to our needs and unique interests…It is your generosity of spirit which will make my Kudremukha adventure live forever in the great memories. A truly unforgettable experience!read more

A special shoutout to our trek lead Oshin who was amazing, friendly and did a great job in bringing the whole lot of us together. She was very supportive throughout the trek and brought a lot of zeal to the group.

Kodachadri Trek: Everything during and before the trekking tour went perfectly well. Any questions in advance were... answered immediately.
Pickup updates were posted prior and was on time.
Decent homestay with good food but I would really appreciate if they were more generous over quantity of food.
Trek guide@Ajay - Supercool, professional and very friendly. He kept us informed in advance as how we could gain advantage over others in reaching the waterfall first to get a best spot. He was open to any queries and kept us moving forward giving priority to the time so that we could reach the peak and be back on time.
Last but not least, driver (Vinod) was very friendlyand helpful.
This was my first trek experience with guide and thanks to PTU and Ajay for making it a memorable one.
Looking forward for more treks with PTU.
@feedback - It would be great if you could add 1 more visiting place on Day 2.read more

Awesome kodachadri trek... planned by plan the unplanned.
Difficult terrain, rainfall the entire day, muddy path, full of rocks, dead trees and the great and scary higlumane waterfall which turned into a water monster (due to heavily pouring rain), when we tried to cross below it , however what's not possible with good friends and awesome trek lead. Yeah !! We made a lot of good friends.
Thanks to all friends and the trek lead.
Totally recommended - plan the unplanned. When u Wana trek, plan the unplanned with them, they will take care of the rest.
The best part of the trek was the trek lead, he was sensitive, submissive and aggressive at different stages of trek wherever it was apt. Shashi the trek lead was very commendable.read more
PTU guys organized the trek amazingly well. This was first trek from Bangalore after corona lock-down, a day trek to... Kuntibetta. They are following safety guidelines and taking only limited number of people, using masks and sanitizer for safety. There is proper planning for the journey and the tour leaders are supportive at every moment. We had great fun time and made new friends. The organizers never failed to engage the group in entertaining activities.read more

Did the 3 day Gokarna and Kumta Beach Trek with PTU.
Trail was pretty good passing through many beautiful beaches with... less crowd.
The sunset point on the rocks near Om Beach was lovely. We could spot quite a few Dolphins from here.
A brief rock climbing session with Jolly(Trek Lead) was interesting.
Visit to Vibhuthi falls and Mirjan fort was good.
The homestay at Kumta which was right next to the beach was one of the highlights.
The trek leads (Oshin, Sahil, Jolly, Shubham) were a bunch of fun-loving people who made the trip a memorable one.read more
The trip to Gokarna and Kumta Beach with PTU was easily the trip of a lifetime for me. A perfect mix of trek leads,... Jolly, Oshin and Shubham, you guys did an incredible job.

Totally worth the price and time!read more
My first solo travel experience was the "Gokarna & Kumta Beach Trek & Camping on 20th Feb" and it turned out to be... beyond amazing. All the trek leads Oshin, Shubham, Jolly, Sahil were so very supportive, encouraging and fun throughout. I couldn't have made it to many spots like Dolphin's Point without their support. Camping, Bonfire, Vibhuti Falls, watching dolphins swim across, deep swimming are some of the very many highlights that I can publicly mention :P .
Made some great connections on this trip that will hopefully last a lifetime. Needless to say that it was an experience that I would remember forever and will have many many more with PTU in the future.
Thanks Guys for saving the long weekend!read more

Special thanks to the... amazing trek leads - Shawarma-Shubham, Mozzarella-Mautushi & Yogurt-Yamini, without these guys this trip wouldn't have been such thrilling to me. People either hike or go to the beaches,PTU-GokarnaTrek changed that by having this amazing planned 'beach-trek' where you can trek and do beach hopping at same time. 2 days and we went across 5 beaches, trekked mountain spaces, had lunch at a beautiful viewpoint with dolphins swimming to the surface. Want to know what exotic actually means? The answer is,Gokarna Beach Trek. All my unplanned-plans will now be planned with PTU.read more
I went for Gokarna trip over the weekend.The places are amazing.We can trek over hills and watch beaches alongside.It... was an amazing trip.The trek leads (yamini,shubam,matty) are awesome people.They made all people to interact with each other and encouraged and took care of us well.Thank u plan The Unplanned for a beautiful experienceread more
I had decided to go for a Solo trip to Gokarna with PlanTheUnplanned. I did go Solo with Strangers but ended up coming... back with some amazing friends. The trek leads (Shubham, Matty and Yamini) were such good sports and always kept the Josh high! Gokarna was a beautiful place but mainly beach the team took care and ensured that everything was well planned and organzied.
On the first day, you get to trek through to all the beaches in Gokarna (Om beach, half moon beach, Kudle Beach, Paradise beach) and you get to end the day by camping and sleeping in tents on Gokarna beach. The second day, we went to the Mirjan Fort and then to Vibhooti falls.
It was a beautiful memorable experience! Kudos to the amazing Team! ❤️read more
Had an amazing experience trekking at Kodachadri over the weekend! Our trek leads Steffi and Sahil were very... supportive, motivating and made our trek an enjoyable one! 😊read more
Had awesome trip to Gokarna with some great folks.
Went for Hampi Tour with PTU.
Had a great time! The trip was really well planned and Deeksha and Matty were amazing... team leaders! Would recommend everyone to give them the opportunity to plan your next amazing trip!read more
Best trip planner for Gokarna. Had a really amazing experience with some amazing people. Definitely would recommend it... to anyone looking for making a memorable trip and new friends. The trek leads and organizers were super friendly and helpful. Also had a great time playing Mafia in Bus.read more
Gokarna beach trek and camping was the first time experience of its kind for me with a trekking organization where... people not-so-familiar to each other met and bade adieu to the trek as pals. I had always wanted to go for trips of this sort, but never before PTU could I plan going with such a great bunch of people. Every moment had a story to tell and every story had an emotion attached to it.
Right from the fun-filled improvised intro sessions in the bus to the floor smashing moves on our way back, each tick is cherished. The beach hopping, water splashing, volleyball, the amazing sunset and dolphin sighting, one can go on and on. Stories, poems and music over the bonfire took the best out of everyone adding to the connect among ourselves. Camping and star gazing right on the Gokarna beach was just splendid an affair that I can't put in words. I must admit it had been ages I stared at the beauty of the ether, so enchanting and clear. Nonetheless, the second day witnessed an apt photography destination, the Mirjan fort (credits to Pooja for the featured pic) and the refreshing dips in Vibhooti waterfalls, followed by a nice homely lunch.
A big thanks the three trek leads who made this experience worth the effort. Pooja has been extremely dynamic and kept the team spirit alive throughout, special mention of her being a poet and stealing the show. Sahil is the sweet jovial person who mingled with all and kept encouraging people to look forward to a satisfying end of the trek. Not to forget Krishna, an experienced leader for Gokarna (thanks for dolphin spotting) who took care not to leave anyone behind in the trek, and managing the itinerary was commendable at his part.
All in all, PTU gave an enthralling and happy experience that has made me look forward to more adventures with it. Kudos to the team !!!read more
We had been to Kodachadri for a trek organised by plantheunplanned. The whole trip was very well planned and co... ordinated. The trek leads were very friendly and kind. This was my first trek ever and I found it really challenging, but both our trek leads(Naveen and Medha) were extremely encouraging and helped me reach the peak.
The stay was good, all our fellow travellers were super sweet. It was a great experience.
Would definitely recommend plantheunplanned to everyone.read more

I had really good trekking experience in Kunti betta with PTU. All activities were very well organised by trek guides... Jaidev and Vaibhav. We also covered Rangantittu bird sanctuary after trekking.read more
Went on Gokarna trek with my friend recently with PTU and they not even at a single point failed to make it all worth... it❤️.
From the time we boarded the bus, to the trek, the stay in the tents right in front of the beach, the vibes... Everything was just soo amazing...
Many thanks to our trek leads Lahar, Arpitha and Rashmi... Without them being soo soo amazing, filling energy in us all the time, full on entertainment, For all the little and big helps they did....
I really totally enjoyed my time and strongly suggest it to everyone.read more
Had a kickass time at Gokara trek! The leads Lahar, Arpita and Rashmi were simply awesome 👏! Can’t wait to go on a new... trek with you guys 😘😘😘read more
Amazing experience with PTU. The trek leads Rajat and Vishal kept it very engaging till the end. Loved the home stay... amidst the mountains.read more
I went for the "Gokarna Beach Trek" this January. The walk between the beaches, over cliffs, with the occasional... glimpse of the vastness of the ocean summarizes my experience. One day is hardly enough to explore this place but you can definitely get a taste for what is at store. I’d love to visit again in more leisurely unplanned manner. The trek itself wasn’t very hard, can be done by anyone as we stopped at multiple beaches for relaxation. It's a perfect getaway if you want to break away from the buzz at the desk.
I started the journey with one friend and ended up with dozens of them, and memories for a lifetime. The trek leads, Prateek, Jaidev and Hita were very friendly and had things in control throughout the trek. Thanks to “Plan The UnPlanned” for making this a memorable experience, would love to travel with these folks any day.read more
First trek with PTU . The only thing we need to do is plan where to go and show up on time. Rest everything PTU takes... care. I went to kotagiri. Ours was a small group. Ajay was our guide. Amazing guy. Respect bro🤘.
Though we had a pre planned itenary, ended up doing a completely different one on the fly. If you are ready PTU guides will change the itenary to suit you. Awesome experience. Solo or group traveller doesn't matter. You'll definitely have a great time. Lots of stories and experiences exchanged. Looking forward for more such amazing experiences with Ajay and the PTU team🤩.read more
This was my first trek with plan the unplanned. It was beyond my expectation. I don't have words to describe! This was... fabulous. Strangers turned into close ones😘 A big big biggggg thanks to plan the unplanned 😍😍😍😍read more
Gokarna Trek: An unforgettable experiance
What an amazing start of 2020. Going to a trek with strangers was skeptical... at first but PTU had done a great job. Jatin, Deeksha, Akshay and Jolly such an amazing job to make all the strangers into friends. I played games that I never played and done things like rock climbing and living in tents that I never did in my life and after this beautiful experiance I am sure to go with PTU. You people are pro and made the whole trip so much fun and adventurous. Thankyou so much PTU for making this trip memorable.read more
This was my first trekking experience and thankfully was an awesome one too.They are very professional in their... organisation alongwith a personal touch of care for every individual of the Trek. They covered all the beaches via trekking on mountains. They organised our stay in tents near the sea so you can hear the waves throughout the night and also engaged us in different games so that everyone gets involved.I would definitely recommend PTU to all.read more
New year could not have begun on a better note. The treks to different beaches of Gokarna were organised in the most... suitable way possible. If you are fond of exploring new places with new people, you have come to the right place. Plan The Unplanned is there for you to make all your trips a memorable one. The best part of my trip was the way they handled a crowd of 28 people. None of the people were unhappy at the end of the trip. Special mention goes to Jatin and Deeksha for keeping our Josh hi all the time.
Looking forward for many such memories :)read more
That was a unplanned decision to trek Kumara parvatha as I insisted 3 of my friends along with me. That was first time... for all 4 of us to trek 28km with all the support of our 3 guides we did it finally and was an awesome experience with PTU. Western ghats are beautiful with mesmerising weather and views.read more
Very good experience for me

Had been to Wayanad night trek & camping with PTU on the last week of December. Hadn't heard of them until my friend... shared a link and asked to tag along. But came back with a very pleasant experience. Special shout out to Ajay and Pooja who were the trek leaders without whom it wouldn't have been so much fun! I will definitely trek with PTU in future!read more
Trip to Kodaikanal on New year's 2020 with plan the unplanned team was one amazing and adventurous trek!
This was my... frist trek also first trek trip with plan the unplanned. I really wanted to experience something different than usual trips and I must say, I experienced the best!!! Just wow! The stay,the journey, the itenary - well organized!
Thanks to the amazing crew and team leaders for making this new year special!
It was my first solo trip and also first trip with @plantheunplanned team, intialy I felt like I am going with... strangers how it will go but our trip leads made easy path for us they made us strangers to known person and we ended from known person to friends , really I had awesome memories from this kodaikanal trek especially view from campus valley. It was 2days trek but it felt like we went for weeks.
Best part of this trek was base camp(campus valley) , it's very beautiful place and staff of valley they are friendly people.
I met different people in this trek all are fabulous and everyone experiences motivate me to explore more and finally thanks for Our trip leads(abhi,Matty and Vaibhav) without them this won't be best trip.
Looking for future tips with @plantheunplanned.read more
This was my first solo trip with a group and with PTU. It was an wonderful experience with the like minded people on... board. The Team Leaders Steffi and Shashi really made everyone comfortable with interactive games.
I loved the musical treat surprise with Gali Durugpappa's Hampi Song.read more

They handled everything so well.
Highly recommend for women solo travellers, recently I have travelled to Gokarna as solo and my trek leads... Rujutha,Krishna and lehar were amazing in taking care of every member at the time of trek accommodating guests and making to feel comfortable....Thank you guys for making the beach trek so memorable...read more
I recently went to Kumara Parvatha, my first trek with PTU. The trek leads were Jolly, Medha and Moushi. The fact that... they let you be at ease and trek on your own pace despite them having done it numerous times already is amazing. They ensured no one is left behind and pushed everyone to give their best. They quite literally carried some our weights on their back. You are even taught some amazing games :P It's safe to say that you go on trips as individuals but come back as a single group with loads of memoriesread more
I recently went to Hampi with Plan The Unplanned. It was a well-planned and fun-filled trip. There weren't any hiccups... and the surprises they had planned gave me memories for life. The team leads were wonderful and they ensured that the group got along. Even the people they had partnered with were great. For example, people at the campsite were very sweet and helpful. It was my first trip with such a group and I am sure it won't be the last.read more
It was my first as well as great Trekking experience to Hampi. Trek leads Shashi and Steffi managed the entire trip so... well and made sure everyone enjoyed. I would love to go more trips with this team.read more
Kodachadri trek was a very memorable experience. Very well organized trek. Played games and made new friends. Homely... stay. Thanks to the team PlanTheUnplanned! Looking forward to trek again.read more
This was my first trek with PlanTheUnplanned. I had been to a few one day treks in Karnataka, which were relatively... easy. I decided to go for Kumara Parvatha trek as I heard it was even more adventurous than some Himalayan treks. And believe me, this trek did meet my expectations. Also the trek leads from PTU, Jolly, Mautushi and Medha, and the entire group made this experience even more memorable. Smoothly organised and thought ahead of by the leads, and the best part was that they made sure that it was the group which completed the trek as a whole, it was because of them that almost everyone was able to complete this 28 km adventurous feat. Kudos to the PTU team and all my other group
mates for this fun and memorable experience. Looking forward to more such experiences in the new year ahead.☺️read more
This was my third trek in 2 consecutive months with PTU. I decided to try a relatively difficult Kumara Parvata. This... time our trek leads were Jolly, Moutushi aka Matty and Medha. All of them were amazing. Credit goes to Jolly as he decided to deviate from the prefixed schedule and attempt to do the summit push on the 2nd day. That gave me an unique opportunity to do a sunrise trek, experience the milky way and gradually changing colour of the sky while climbing up. Few things to be kept in mind. It's not a easy trek to do, so it will test your physical and mental strength. All three leads helped us gear up whenever anyone felt low. The base camp at the forest check post is a small place amidst jungle with limited water and toilet facilities. So one has to be flexible in such circumstances. Littering at the camp site and the trail is something that made me frustrated and angry, but thanks to the constant vigilance of PTU team here ( and in my previous treks also), our 26 membered team left the campsite as it was before. A big shoutout to the leads and the entire PTU team for your efforts.read more
Highly memorable experience! Kudos to Nagashri and Abhiram for being superb trek leads. Tadiandamol trek is one of... amazing treks I've done with some stunning views.read more

I went to Hampi with PTU on 28th Dec 2019, and it was a great trip and good trek leaders Stephie and Shahsi. I am very... much happy to travel with PTU again and again. since it is tent staty and all you have adjust with washrooms other than everything is superb and good group also.read more
It was my maiden beach trek to Gokarna and the experience was at par in all aspects! Plan the Unplanned (PTU),... organized it so very well, that for any single instance, I didn't find that I'm travelling with strangers. Food, hospitality, team engagement, everything were very well taken care of!
A huge Kudos to entire team of Plan the Unplanned for setting up such an amazing bunch of guyz to actually fill in some LIFE into our lives!!!

I would highly recommend PTU for a fun filled experience. It was my first trek to kodachadri and I was encouraged to... push my limits at many points and special thanks to our trek leads akansha, abhi and akansha. we'll definitely book next trek with PTU. #kodachadritrekread more
I would like to give 5 star and recommend the plan the unplanned trek group due to following points:
1. Well organised... and planned
2. Itinerary was perfect and covered mentioned in the itinerary
3. Trek leads are just like our friends
4. Timing was so perfectread more
I have been recently back from my Gokarna trip organized by "Plan The Unplanned" and I must say it was a very well... organized trip. At no point, we had any issue and the purpose of trip was very well taken care of.
I am happy to mention about Jatin , Abhishek,Abhijeet & Medha, who were very responsive all the time and remained with us all the time to make sure we have a trip for life. People at "PTU" are humble and take care of every concern that you have.
I strongly recommend 'Plan the unplanned'!
Good luck to you guys .. keep Traveling and keep rockiing.read more
Enjoyed the Gokarna trip organised by PTU. will give 4 out of 5 stars..
I went to the kodachadri trek with PTU team and it was a really great experience. The trek guides went above and beyond... at many occasions to make sure everyone had a wonderful experience. One of such instance is where, there were some optional milestones in the trek where not everyone was able to go because of it's difficulty, but they did not stop the people willing to complete that milestone. In fact, Sushmita (one of the trek guide) even said that even if there was a single person who wanted to complete that milestone, they would accompany them. Similarly Akshay (other guide) stayed with me and my friend at the sunset point for an extra few minutes because we wanted to view the sunset but the team was leaving since it was getting dark. All such small gestures by the team made a lot of difference in our experience of the trek. I would really recommend planning your next trip/trek with the plan the unplanned team.read more
Kudremukh Trek with PTU
I have been to a lot of trek in Himalayas with my friends mostly, this was my first trek in... South and 1st Solo Trek (with unknown people before trek) and this has been a wonderful experience, i really liked the way PTU people organised everything, the fellow travellers were all with positive attitude and it never felt like i am travelling solo.
About the trek, the best part i liked was there was not a single wrapper of plastic throughout the trek, as you are not allowed to carry any plastic and if you are carrying like lunch box or any bag to keep your wet clothes, authorities will count the plastic bags you took and you need to show them when you are back otherwise they will impose a fine, i think this should be followed everywhere (Himalayan Treks specially) as while trekking the scenery is beautiful but the way is littered by travellers badly.
Looking forward for more treks/trips with these people.read more
I did kodachadri trek in mid December'19. Trek was easy. I have to wait alot for others. But this 5 star is for the... trek leaders, they were very concerned for others, they kept motivating them and making sure that no one left behind and that is the most important role as trek leader. I personally want to thank sushmita 'cause whenever I went too ahead from others, then, she started calling names and making sure that we were ahead of them and not lost in the woods. Thank you for showing such concern.....another thing that I liked most was the bus journey....we danced alot, played mafia and met alot of new people......so in the end, I would like to thank PTU for making the moments memorable!!read more
Well organized...It's worth trekking 14km to watch sunset from the peak
It was a great experience with PTU. I made some great friends and memories on the Kayaking trip. Started by meeting... complete strangers to making new friends on the way while making amazing memories. Thanks to PTU team shashi and shubum #PlanTheUnplannedread more
Plan the Unplanned have created a team of most amazing individuals. We were part of Kudremukh trek on the weekend of... 7th, 8th Dec. Our trek leads were Raghav aka Ghost and Deeksha, once they started the ice breaker during our journey, it was only an upward trend 💹 from there.
Homestay - Bella Home Stay 5/5 * - Amazing food and comfortable stay. Hosts were really welcoming.
Raghav and Deeksha - 10/5 * (Yeah that's how much amazing these two people were :))
From the beginning till the end, the journey was full of amazing sights of Kudremukh national park and even more amazing social encounters with the whole group which Plan the Unplanned brought together. Keep doing what you guys are doing 🤟, will definitely plan another trip with PTU soon.read more
Very well organized and great trek leads. This being my very first experience, it's been an unforgettable one. PTU... scores high on every parameter that defines trekking! I strongly recommend this to everyone who wants to go on a weekend getaway😊read more
It was a last minute unplanned decision to join them, but turned out to be a great experience, they are extremely... professional and the entire trip was a great experience
Great experience. Well planned.
We did the Kudremukh Trek.
Clean rooms and washrooms, decent food and cool trek leaders showing us the way.
Ellaneru... Falls was dope. The views from the trek were breathtaking.
Totally worth the price for a rather marvelous experience.read more
It was my first trip to Gokarna and to be honest, was a bit sceptical how would it turn out with an unknown group. But... to my surprise - within a couple of hours of starting from Bengaluru, all of us were comfortable and the trek leads (Prakrathi and Shubham) made sure that we start with great momentum and end on an even higher note, and that's what happened. I had a great experience.read more
Super trekking experience
It was a fantastic trip to Gokarna. I went along with my friend with your org. (Plan the Unplanned). First time I went... for a planned trip, and it was great. People who haven't tried this must try this experience once. It saves your time which you usually spend on planning and managing your bookings. Also, you get to meet some new set of friends who got their awesome stories to share. Last but not least, you have volunteers like Prakriti and Shubham who will make sure you are conformable and enjoying your trip to the fullest. So guys, without any second thought in mind go for it.

Last weekend I got a chance to travel with PTU to Gandikota and belum caves exploration..it was such a great a... experience. Starting from the ice breaker , breakfasts, camping , waterfalls, games(taboo and mafiya) , bonfire and sight seeing. Everything was so nicely taken care of. Both the trek leads akansha and Gowtham were so energetic and approachable that I didn't find any difficulty during these 2 days . Thanks for making my weekend such a fun.

I recently went on a trek to dandeli through plan the unplanned (PTU). I must say it has been a wonderful experience.... The trek leads know what they are doing and are always there to help us out when we get stuck.

I hope PTU gets the reputation it deserves and hope to join them on new expeditions.read more
I joined PTU for a trip to Gandikota and Belum Caves. Their approach to creating travel experiences was very... impressive.

Kayaking with Sushant the kayakboy was a beautiful experience, with a total of 25km of kayaking over two days in the... Shambhavi River in Mulki.
The star-lit night sky from Mulki base camp was a surreal visual to witness along with the sunset during kayaking (at least for me).
Other than the kayaking itself there are plenty of events that make it much more beautifully memorable, the time spent in the Mulki beach, barbecue in the night, the home-made food, the swim by the dam, the people who you are bound to meet with, and all the fun games played in mulki and during travel accompanied by our wonderful guide Adit.

Gokarna/Kumta Beach trek :
- AC bus(Semi-sleeper), R bus was 20 seater.
- They provide accomodation(Tent)... with sleeping bag.
- They are communicative, I haven't felt like I'm on a solo trip.
- Homely Food.
- We can do swimming in most of the beaches.
- Rock climming.
- Journey time utilized in playing games.
- Restrooms are clean at all stays.
- Hard to find cons.
- At last the trip ends and v had to return to r normal life.
- One star less as I was not expecting this trip to end, still it ended.
Experience : R trip was a combination of two terks(Gokarna and Kumta) due to a holiday on Rajyotsava. This was first solo trip of my life, and first trip in bangalore.
day 0 : Jouney started early morning(5:30 am) form Swad-E-Punjab,HSR Layout. Around 9 am we reached a restaurant where v had r breakfast. During whole journey v were playing many interesting games. Reached Gokarna by around 9 pm. Had Dinner at a restaurant near beach. Then spent time singing songs in front of bonfire and looking a shooting stars. Seperate room for boys and girls was there to keep r bags. Restrooms were in good condition. Test was also good, with proper ventilation. I was not willing to waste my time in sleeping, still sleeped at around 1am.
day 1 : I had set an alarm to getup early (5am). Swtiched that alarm off then had some more sleep. Gotup at sunrise, spent some time jogging on beach, looking fishermen fishing at beach. Till then morning breakfast was ready to eat, v submited r tifin box for lunch. After breakfast v left Gokarna, and head towards more beaches i.e. OM beach, paradise beach, half moon beach, Rock of peace, Rock climbing, deadly beach etc. at last v saw sunset. Luckly the climate was on r side. Then left towards Kumta. Stay at Kumta was awesome. Food was also good. The bonfire was lit, v sat near it , playing many games of card, singing song, watching stars, this time v didn't wish to sleep in tent though the tent was alloted to us, the beach was clean so v sleeped on beach itself watching stars.
day 2 : Gotup early asusual. Did some jogging on beach. The v got ready for early morning trek beside beach. This trek was a thrill as there were horn trees beside track. V enjoyed the trek got to the top. The view from the top was beathtaking, a totally new world. Spent some time there and decent back to stay.
Then had breakfast which was awesome and tasted homely with tea. Then v head towards Vibhuti waterfall. The waterfall was awesome, had two spots to jump into it. The depth at the point where the water falls was more then 9 feet, so no chance to get hurt. I know swimming so jumped twice form higher point and once from lower point. Then v head towards a village home where v changed r clothes. Then had lunch at a Dhaba kindof restaurent, This time also food was awesome and homely and omlet was also nice, and that too at very less cost. Ater lunch v head back towards Bangalore, again playing games in bus, with disco in bus as bus had disco lighting. The bus also had awesome speaker with subwoofer.
I will definately plan for next trip with them most probably KP (Kumar Parvat) trek, as I'm a trekker.
Some comments about trek leads :
Jatin : He is a good listner. No matter how bad or good it is, he is always ready to listen to what you say or whatever your dought is. This shows his experience too. (Listening is a quality rarely found in people nowadays). His speech is also cool and dance sexy.
Deeksha : I wish to have communication skills like her.
Prakrati : Nice. She can beat whole group alone in Antakshari(A game of singing songs).read more
As a solo traveller my experience with PTU was beyond expectations. I never thought that I will meet such great people... and make new friends. I never felt uncomfortable with the trek leaders or my fellow travellers, instead I felt I know them since a long time. This trip was like a gift to myself which I will always cherish because I had a great time exploring myself and a new place from where I really got the peace of mind that was much needed. The trip had a few drawbacks but then the arrangements, the view, sky full of stars, and the jolly nature of the trek leaders made it all disappear. People should not waste their time to decide whether to go or not, just go for it because it will be hell of an experience and alot is out there that cannot be described in words. @jatin @Prakriti and @deeksha thanks alot for making this happen. I had a blast with u guys.... hope to see u soon.read more
If this is your first time and whether or not if you're sure which group would be good PLANTHEUNPLANNED is the best.....

I went on this trek to Kodachadri (1st-3rd Nov) led by Hitesh and Oshin and it was one of my best experience ever. The... trek leaders took utmost care to make everyone feel comfortable right from boarding the bus. The ice-breaker session was very different and paved the way for bonding with fellow trekkers. The homestay exceeded expectations, it was very clean, well maintained and food was good. Coming to the trek, Oshin and Hitesh did an amazing job of motivating us to push our limits and helped out whenever needed. I went solo but little did I know I’m going to come back with so many cherished memories and new friends. Overall had an amazing time. Looking forward to more such treks with plantheunplanned in the future :)read more
Gokarna and kumta beach is my first trek with PTU and the experience was beyond expectation. We really enjoyed the... whole trip. From playing some fun filled games in the journey, sharing our life experiences, star gazing in the night, singing in the bonfire to camping at beach, we did it all. They even changed their planned itenary for us as we wanted to visit Vibhuti falls which was not included. I really liked the trek leader Prakrithi, who is not only a good trek leader but a good person by heart. She was making sure that every body feels comfortable on the trek.

It was a random, unplanned booking done through the website and the overall experience was truly awesome. Great trek... leaders and fellow travelers, completely unknown but no ego issues, no second thoughts, no rationality .. everyone had a great bonding with the common goal of enjoying great moments on the beach and a beautiful jungle trek, the spirit of being together brought us closer, it felt like a team. Slight delay was there but the quality time spent together reigned over such small issues. Thanks to the team. Would like to be part of this again in the near future.read more
There are tour packages and then there is PlanTheUnplanned, these guys excel at making the trip familiar and... adventurous and not just a managed service. The trek leaders are friendly and experienced and eager to help out first time trekkies like me. They deliver more than they promise and I'm glad I chose them for my first trip outta Bangalore.
10/10 would go again.read more

This weekend I went on a trek to Kodachadari with PTU. It's an experience i will cherish for life. It always feels like... I am traveling with family, though everytime i meet new bunch of people. Best organizers.read more

PTU is undoubtedly the best trekking organizations that I've been with so far. Their planning, Co-ordination everything... is taken care of so well. I've done 2 major Solo treks with PTU and they were so memorable and I will cherish them for ever.
Special mention to SHASHIKIRAN, GEETHANJALI AND MURALIDHARA.These 3 Trekleads made my Solo travel/trek even more blissful and more easier for me. They were filled with so much fun and energy and enthusiasm. Thanks guys 💕

I travelled to Nishani Motte trek with PTU. The best thing about my experience with was that it never felt like we are... traveling with strangers or very close friends. Everyone on the trip felt equally close to us because of all the fun activities we had. The journey was flexible, and not for a single moment they let us feel as if they are from the organization and everything goes as per their plan. The transparency they had with us about where to go, when to go, and any type of feedback were all readily accepted and added to the comfort and service of the trip.read more
The team leaders are amazing and make sure that you are having a great time during the trek.

If I could do kodachadri trek with the plantheunplanned I am sure anyone can do it.
It was first of its kind for me in... many ways
My 1st trek
My 1st solo travel
My 1st adventures trip.
In the past when I went to gandahati waterfalls ,I had bad experience as I have slipped twice and almost had a fracture so that fear as always with me when I see slippery rocks,now I had overcome it thanks to our trek lead (Gowtham).
Everything was planned and executed perfectly. Thanks to our group , trek leads and plantheunplanned.
Kind of experience ptu brings in was flawless. Right from breaking the icebreking session (after which we no longer strangers) , homestay and food arranged, local guide arranged, helping and encouraging during the trek , jeep booking to descend the peak , travel from and to Bangalore everything was perfect.
No hidden charges. (Only place where I had to take out my wallet was on day 2 lunch which was mentioned in the website)
I would highly recommend kodachadri-trek for that matter any trip with plantheunplanned.read more
A perfect getaway, well planned and executed by the team Plan the Unplanned. A real-life YJHD trek experience! Totally... loved the engaging activities and games at Bella Homestay! #KurinjalTrekread more
Recently we went for the kodachadhri trek with Plan The Unplanned. It was an amazing experience. The feeling of... unwinding all the stress at the lap of serene nature is a therapy.
And the best season for trekking is in monsoon. You get lush greenery, foggy mountains, beautiful landscapes and singing waterfalls. The pleasant weather doesn’t let you get exhausted easily. It is like a heavenly escape. But good things always come with conditions, like slippery trails, leeches, dangerous conditions, etc. But it is worth it all. Now, about the PTU - great and fun loving trek leads and amazing food with convenient homestay and lots of fun. Never it was tiring with wonderful people around who always encourage and entertain. I recommend PTU and I can surely assure you about a few things - you shall get to make some amazing friends, eat some delicious food, shed some calories dancing and hiking and of course, cleanse your soul with some hearty laughter!read more
Initially, we were a bunch of strangers in a bus. In an hour of journey, we were a gang of friends going on an... adventure never to be forgotten. Thanks to PlanTheUnplanned for such a thrilling and fun filled experience. They ensure you get to go to those offbeat places and get to do most out of it provided , you are good with your feet and heart ! Highly recommend being a part of this wonderful team of energetic and funloving people.Looking forward to more trips in the long run with PTU.read more
The trip was definitely not a 'luxurious one' unlike typical vacationing packages, but it was something which gave me... an epic & astounding experience, full of fun and adventure.
It gave me the chance to mingle with everyone else thanks to the professional, yet friendly and supportive organizers which made the experience even more fun and exciting.
I would recommend Plan the Unplanned to thrill seeking and energetic backpackers, who are genuinely curious about globetrotting. Even if you are travelling solo, you wont feel alone, thats for sure, thanks to PTU.
I look forward to travel with Plan the Unplanned again.

organising the trip, supportive coordinators,
Abhilash Akansha Vishal and Rahul.
This was my first trek in South India, and as I was surfing through the internet for a good trek package, I couldn't... find any better than PTU. The trek leaders treated everyone like their family and because of their enthusiasm, we could finish our trek in time and had lots and lots of fun. The best thing was the homestay, the old couple were very welcoming and took good care of us, the typical south Indian food was scrumptious. The most amazing thing was that even after the trek no one was tired, we were non-stop chit-chatting. Trek Leads Aadi (the entertainer of our group), Gurpriya (mature amongst all) and Abhiram(Serious guy but gave us something to laugh on the whole trip) taught us that "alone we are strong but together we are stronger". Kodachadri trek had the perfect combination of steep, rocky and plain terrain. We also got to see a waterfall and had a lot of fun over there. I strongly recommend PTU to everyone who wants to explore nature with adventure. This was the best trek I ever had and going solo was the best thing to do because we started off as strangers and became good friends and create memories to cherish whole life.😍😍😍read more
This was my first ever trek - I should start with saying thanks to the members of PTU who organised the trip so well... that I might have higher expectations in future.
Review is very long, please do spend some time in reading it, apologies for the big fandom.
About the trek - I took the trip to Kodachadri and the place was OMG kind of beautiful.
The organisers planned every part of the trek, from pickup points to homestay to various legs of the trek & the way they kept us engaged / entertained is something that I’ve never felt in any of my previous travelling experiences.
The HOMESTAY was simple & good. Unlike other places, the food here was too good that I should say it was beyond my expectations. One PTU guy told me that they will never compromise on the food & accommodations’ quality. I accept & would even vouch for that point considering the place I went to. The home cooked food was too delicious & every meal was better than the previous one.
PTU - The place I would go to plan my further such trips with a blindfold. I’m not sure if this is the strategy they have or something, but we had 3 of them (people representing PTU) and I’ve never seen anyone so encouraging, down to earth and energetic. I would like to applaud them out for their individual roles & their team efforts that made my first trek so much fun, memorable & lively.
About the PTU people who accompanied us on the trek,
1. Aadi - Mr. Livewire - that one guy who is active all the time no matter what & WHOA his spirit. Connected within few minutes of even looking at each other. Can’t say enough about the way he treated everyone and the Positive vibes this guy spread around the entire team. Love you loads machan.
2. Abhiram - Mr. Fantastic - it was his first time leading a trek & BOY DID HE BEHAVE THAT WAY!? - NEVER. The calmness, the smartness to keep things in control and CHARACTER, I really did feel so much that I can’t even gather words to put through. Such a wonderful person I’ve ever met in my life yet. Keep the character alive Machan.
3. Gurupriya - Wonderwoman - Heard of the phrase a woman behind success? Well she was that in case of our trek. The encouragement, the dedication & the connect with people JUST WONDERFUL.
The PTU culture :
* they never let you litter around during the trek, these guys carry trash bags with them & collect whatever trash we otherwise would have thrown away. Such great respect to Mother Nature.
* The also give you something called SEED BALLS, just to preserve the greenish mountains - you just have to throw them out in the wild & later that grows out to be a tree or some kind of plant. Great initiative though.
* They also give you a momento at the end of the trip. I’m going to cherish mine forever - grab yours without fail when you trek with them.
Looking forward to more such trips with PTU. Love you loads & loads guys. Thanks for such a wonderful trip.read more
Treking on Kodachadri hills - My First Trek with PTU and Kodachadri.
I'm glad that we visited the place at the right... time - the weather was super cool. Except that the hills was covered by fogg and clouds hiding from our vision in few expected places.
Thanks to our Trek leads Aadi, Gurupriya, and Abhiram in keeping up the teams energy and sportive spirit the entire trip. They took care of all of us so well.
Super 30 - I'm very happy that I had taken this trip with such an amazing lovely set of people from different parts of the country with total team of 30.
Highlights - Butter milk on the hills, Hidlumane waterfalls is super dont miss to drench yourself in the water falls its a lifetime experience, Puliogare packed for lunch on the hills - meadows point, Mookambica temple on the hill top, Beautiful!
The homestay food is good, accomodation was comfortable and secure, owners where friendly with us. I wish the return Jeep ride from the hill during the descend could have been on time but due to the rains and the road conditions expect the delays use the time over the hill wisely.
Please carry very good trekking shoes (do not use your old shoes) the hills trail is little rough and you need really good grip.
Rain Jackets must!
Do carry the lunch box from home, 2 X 1L bottles and other snacks and chocolates.
I had made some wonderful friends and I wish to travel with them soon.
Thanks with Love, Navaz.read more

Review of kodachadri Treak:
This was the first trek with PTU and in Karanataka really really it was an amazing trip for... our group met lot of new peopls.the way PTU treak leads treated us was very friendly,Caring and Encouraging.home stay and food it was very good.read more
This was my first ever trek both in my life and with PTU. Never I had imagined that I would have so much fun and a... memorable trip. The trek itself was so mesmerising and every leg was as unique and different from other legs. It is a medium level trek especially if you are a first-timer.
A big thanks to the PTU team for organising this so well. A special shoutout also goes to the Homestay. The owner and his family were so punctual in terms home, proving what we needed not to forget the meals, they were on time and every meal was so delicious.
I would say if you have the travel bug in you then this trek is a must-try, I bet you won't be disappointed.read more
This was my first trek with PTU. The efforts of the PTU team were remarkable. They treated everyone like their family.... They help you and encourage you to finish the trek with great energy.
The trinity - Adith, Gurpriya and Abhiram - interacted with every member so that nobody felt left out.
The food was amazing and the homestay was comfortable and secure. Late night walks and early morning teas were the icing on the cake. I have made three great friends whom I will never forget. I hope I get a chance to do this again with the same leads soon. Preparing myself for my next trek. 😉
You know they are genuinely good people when they feed the street dogs, educate people about environmental awareness and treat everyone as their kin.
I recommend everyone to give a try - newbies or experienced. If you are a newbie, you will develop an affection for hiking with this group. If you are an experienced person, you will like the energy the leads emit and the rest of the group resonates.
P.S. I have a request for the trekkers. Please bring the things that the leads ask you to bring in the itinerary. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them before the trek. Sticking to the rules will definitely make everyone's life easier 😊read more
Trekkers can really trust plan the unplanned for enjoyment and safety. They take care of you at all... circumstances.

Best things about the trip I had this weekend to Gokarna was, the way organisers tried to keep the group together and... made the group of strangers to a group of friends ...!!!
If the place is good, it is going to be good anyway, but if you choose planTheUnplanned to go to the place, trust me the even not so good place will become more then worth going because of the experience you will have while being with all the people. I could actually see the most introvert person was also mixed up with everyone when we were comming back to Bengaluru on Sunday and it was feeling like i knew each and every person to the extent that we started planning to meet again on upcoming days...
Obviously the place we went to was out of the world, the track , the hidden beaches, the crazy stuffs we did there, all became more beautiful since by that time I was walking with 20friends of mine!!
I would like to mention the organisers name whose efforts made this a memorable journey for me.
Adith Iyar- the fun dude, he involved in every crazy thing we did there with more excitement then us.
Jatin- he was the actual sutradhar of everything, planned how things will be done, lead the trail, made all of us understand the plan and the games we played.
Deepika- she was the power puff girl of group, she made sure everyone was walking together..she walked at the end of the trail to keep the slowest person together...and she did all of that management using a normal feature phone...coz who need smart phone if you are smarter then the Phone...🤜🤛😅
Great job guys...thanks for the experience.read more
Gokarna I had heard from friends is a place to relax... may be stay in a shack, eat, drink, hire a bike and go around... the beaches for a bit or just laze on a beach. When I saw this was a beach trek, I was apprehensive given that it was also my first trek ever and also solo after a long time.
All my apprehensions were put to rest with this this group, the trek leaders made me feel at ease from the time I boarded their bus. The entire group of 21 people became clone knit, we played games on the bus, pulled one legs of others, played in the beach together like childhood friends, slept in tents with strangers who we were getting to know now, laughed a lot, sang, danced in the middle of empty fields late at night, talked some deep stuff, shared life stories, learnt a lot from other people, gained myself back.
I am so glad to have made a choice to go on this trip. Its been one of my most memorable trips. Just a weekend trip but the memories will be etched for a lifetime.read more

I've been on treks/trips practically every month for the past 2 and a half years, and have traveled with almost every... significant group in Bangalore, having mixed experiences.
This weekend I completed my third trip with PTU, and I can say for sure that the experience with them has been consistently positive.
The first traveling experience with PTU was in Hampi (9th Feb 2019), which was made even better when they threw up a surprise music therapy session which wasn't even in the itinerary.
The second experience was on a trek to Kurinjal (3rd Aug 2019), which had a slightly chaotic start due to half of the group getting lost on the way to Elniru falls, but was handled gracefully by the trek leads and the good folks at Bella homestay.
The rest of the trip was handled flawlessly by the team.
The third experience was in Wayanad (7th Sep 2019).
This was a very well planned itinerary with mix of small patches of treks, jeep rides, sight seeing and night camping, which made it a very memorable one for most of us traveling.
In all the trips, I've observed that they ensure a good ratio of trek leads to group members, who are well involved in breaking the ice between people and starting conversations.
Having a good number of trek leads minimizes the chances of an individual getting lost while on a trail(a common occurrence otherwise), while also making people feel engaged with the group.
The homestays that they arrange are tidy places away from the rest of the buildings, which helps us feel the place better, also giving us a good taste of the local food.
I would recommend PTU for both trekking enthusiasts and people preferring a more relaxed travel schedule.read more
I went to Wayanad. It was my second trip with Plan The Unplanned and was as good it could be. The trip leads Rahul,... Jolly and Rakshita were awesome. It was one of the best trip.
There's so much I'm taking back from this trek.
I will remember this for a long time. 😉 Loved it 💕.
Thanks Plan The Unplanned.
Cheers !read more
The Spiti trip with Plan The Unplanned has been a life changing experience for me. I had primarily joined because my... old friend Riyanka was coordinating the trip. Gradually I found other reasons too to not regret my decision. Spiti is a beautiful place but without some planning and preparation you risk missing out on a lot of things. The whole itinerary was well thought out. Jatin took the effort to introduce the group with each other beforehand so that we don't end up as an awkward bunch of strangers traveling together. Thanks to Riyanka's helpful tips, I was well prepared to travel to such high altitudes. What I found the most commendable on part of PTU is that every place we stayed at and every meal we had even at the almost remote villages were brilliant. It has been 15 days since I returned and I can still picture myself having delicious paranthe while enjoying the mesmerising view right from our stay in Chitkul or having mouthwatering ghee shakar and makki di roti at the super hospitable chotiwale dhaba or the cozy kitchen at Nako or playing ludo while sipping on my ginger lemon honey at the Yeti Cafe in Narkanda. Sahil Bhai's presence made the whole trip worthwhile. He isn't just an experienced guide but someone who really loves Spiti. I had lost someone close while I was away on the trip. I would have been mourning if not for traveling on the roof of our tempo traveller through the pin valley with Sahil. Ashok Bhaiya, our driver was God sent. God bless PTU for hiring him. He is an excellent and a very responsible driver. I came back with lots of good memories and some new friends. Something tells me I'll be traveling with PTU again. :)read more
Kurinjal Peak was my first Trek with PTU. Everything was perfect. Food, Ganesh Puja celebration and old school games... made everyone more connected. The Trek leaders are very friendly and experienced. I would like everyone to chose PTU. If you are planning for an awesome weekend gateway!read more
Amazing experience with PTU at Coorg trip
The trip was an amazing experience for a weekend getaway. We got out of the... hustle bustle of the city into a peaceful homestay with a beautiful view. All the co-trekkers bonded really well and our trek leads (Shashi and Prakrithi) made everyone feel included.
The first day was trek to Tadiandamol peak and despite all the hurdles, the view from the top was worth all the effort. The second day included white water rafting and visit to Namdroling monastery. Both of them had their own experiences and one must experience both.
Overall, it was a great first experience with PTU and it was a combination of the serenity of the place and the amazing people and trek leads we got to hang out with. Thank you PTU for making this trip memorable. Would love to travel with you again :)read more
Went to Spiti on a 8 day Road Trip in August 2019. The entire trip was very well organized.
I have travelled in... groups before so didn't have a lot of questions before I booked the trip. Right after i did, I was added to a WhatsApp group and Riya and Jatin who represent PTU were kind enough to point me in the right direction on getting to Narkanda which was our starting point.
The tempo Traveller on which we spent the greater portion of our trip was more comfortable than expected. All of our stays were planned ensuring we had a good local experience. If you are new to travelling in groups or in general, PTU will not dissapoint .read more
This was my first trip with PTU and I have never imagined that it will pass this way. There is lots n lots of crazy... stuffs that we did together like sitting on the top of the jeep was one of them, the roads were like hell n there were times when I almost died. Trust me it was complete madness but so muchhhhhh fun, that rollercoaster ride kinda feeling 😍😍
And so much more...
It was an awesome trip.....!!!
Thankyou guys for planning it in such a way.read more
I booked a trip to Hampi with these guys. Loved the campsite, food, arrangement and planning. As luck would have it,... the group was stuck in unforeseen floods. Not only did they make sure we had resources and were all safe, but they also kept the spirits up. They make an enthusiastic and extremely accommodating group of people. I had the most eventful trip of my life so far. It would not have been possible without Jatin, Arpita and Adith, and the oodles experience they carry with them. I will definitely recommend planning your next trip with these guys! Especially solo travellers, it will never feel like you are alone and take an introvert's word for that.read more
Well, for someone who likes to check and double check and recheck things just to assure quality and credibility, take... it from that person that PTU will live up to your expectations, and then some more.
My trip to Hampi with the team was beyond what words can describe. It was the most outrageous thing that happened, (because you cannot control nature), but at no point during those 3 days did PTU make any of us feel hopeless.
What a brilliant set of trek leaders, Adith, Arpita and Jatin! Thank you for being the facilitators in the process of making life changing memories.read more
Well I have done two solo trips with ptu but frankly speaking I never felt like alone. As they the it's about the... journey not the destination, so it's very important with whom you are doing the journey. they have the most happening trek leads who were so friendly and loving and at the same time taking care of all your needs to. Although they would be coming to same place with you but the energy and enthusiasm they show really motivates you. I have travelled with them in group of 12-18. You will get ample opportunity to make new friends as they ensure by various means that you interact with each other which was wonderful.
Thus I would definitely recommend plan the unplanned for any trip in South India.
so don't think about the price if you are getting a seat always go for plan the unplanned first. ❤️ ❤️read more

Kudremukh Trek (3rd Aug - 5th Aug)
I have been planning for the Kudremukh Trek for a long time. But was very hesitant... to do it on my own. There is a limited (50 person) entry for the trek to the Kudremukh and I was not sure about the entry, gates and entry free. Online portals don’t have specifics of the details, and the information didn’t seem updated.
After doing some research, I came across Plan the Unplanned (PTU), and they seemed to be the most reliable. I heard great review from friends and colleagues, so I went ahead and booked Kudremukh Trek for the weekend of 3rd - 5th August. It was a wonderful trip, to say the least. The planning and execution were absolutely on point, and Plan the Unplanned (PTU) exceeded my expectations. Below are some highlights:
· Very good transportation facility (AC Bus)
· Stay was arranged at Bella Homestay. Good clean dorm room. Separate rooms for boys and girls. We were 11 guys staying in room. But it was still decently comfortable.
· Great food at the homestay. Aunty makes some amazing Idlli’s and Tomato rice :D
· Permits were taken care before reaching the entry point of the trek, avoiding last minute hassles. (Such a relief)
· It was relatively easy for experienced hikers but moderate for newbies. But definitely one of the most scenic treks with lots of greenery and gushing water streams on the way. And windows XP theme hills ;)
· The fellow trekkers were good. Very motivated and great sport.
· Last but not the least the Trek Leader (Adith, Megha, Deepika, Yash) were awesome. They are very engaging and responsible. Kudremukh trekkers were mostly in contact with Adith & Megha. And they did an awesome job of coordination and
I highly recommend them. Will plan my next trip with Plan the Unplanned (PTU) soon.read more

Brightness amidst the cloudy mountains,
A dose of freshness like the waterfalls,
A change of color from the dull grey... city to the lush green mountains.
The above sums up to what Plan the Unplanned Kudremukha trek was to me.
It was one of the most exhilarating experience which will forever be etched in my mind.
You don't just get back with a few pictures but will be returning with priceless memories ,stories and friends.
PTU's organisation of the whole trek was something which I can't pick any fault with.
From perfect timings,to a cozy stay and hot food at Bella homestay, to two most amazing trek leads , there is nothing more I could have asked for.read more

Kudremukh Monsoon Trek (28th July 2019):
My first trip with PTU was simply phenomenal. The whole experience exceeded my... expectation. Kudremukh trek was about 20 Kilometers (to and fro) and it's best done at monsoon time. Leech, lush greenery, rain, slippery rocks, fog and mountain views added great flavors to the trek.
The trek group was amazing. I was fortunate to meet like minded people and thereby had an excellent time throughout the trek. I would specially like to thank our trek guides Hitesh Kattimani and Akansha Gupta for executing this trek with at most perfection. They kept the whole group engaged all the time. Looking forward to do more trips with PTU. Thanks!read more

So this is my 4th trek with PTU. Before 1 year I have decided that I will go Gokarna with... PTU on 31st to celebrate my new year. What a trip it was.... like Adventures are waiting for us to happen. some unplanned moments made our trip more awesome and full of thrills. Trek leads were so supportive and funny. They tried their best to make this journey memorable. They have some games which we never played before and all games were the best part of this trip. Also they tried their best to cover all the decided places on time even though we reached late. They also captured some beautiful memories of our trip so that we can never ever forget our this beautiful journey. Food, homestay everything was good and planned well. No one gives you their perfect 💯%. So obviously there were some ups and downs. but I learnt one thing when something unplanned happens, it means something better is is planned for you. _______________________________________
This is my third trek with plan the unplanned and they exceeded my expectations every single time. I’ve been planning to book kudremukh trek since four months and finally I made it to the top along with 5 more passionate travellers who booked with PTU. Everything promised in the itinerary was fulfilled with utmost punctuality, honesty and hospitality by the trek-lead Adith and co trek-lead Bindhu. Bunch of strangers of different age groups because friends very easily and were comfortable with each other - thanks to the speed dating ice breaker done by Adith. We went to Elanneru waterfalls on day 1 and the happiness was clearly visible on all of our faces. It is one of the most pristine waterfall that I’ve been to and you’re allowed to jump right into the waterfall without any restrictions. We had plenty of time to spend under the falls and got to see the rainbow which just amplified the happiness. We stayed at Bella homestay and words are not enough to explain the level of hospitality and honesty they have in their work. Starting from the accommodation, food and hospitality - everything was bang on. Kudos to Chandan and Sid for everything. We started our trek at 8:00 AM on day 2 and my trek would not have been accomplished without the support and motivation from Adith who helped me reach the peak. Bindhu and the local guide were up front with the other 5 customers and Adith was alongside me at the end throughout the ascend and descend of 22 KM. Constantly motivating me and cheering me up at every step and telling me that I can easily reach the peak and feeding me with water and snacks and carrying my bag through the climb. After 5 long hours of trekking with countless breaks and willing to give up, I reached the peak with a big smile on my face. The descend was equally challenging by again the leads ensured that we reach back safely on time by constantly keeping me engaged in their conversations. _______________________________________
First of all I would like to appreciate the whole team members of PTU for doing such a great work. - What an amazing trip it was. Trek leaders were super awesome and supportive.. They gave their best and tried as much as possible to cover all the places so that we can go back with the epic stories to tell our friends. - Food was also good and we got almost all the required facilities from arranged homestay.
Kodachadri monsoon trek:
My first ever trek with PTU and it was amazing. - The trek leads ( Adith, Naveen and Gurpriya) were so enthusiastic ,fun and they made sure everyone in the group had the best of experience - Had a memorable experience with each and every person on the trek. Loved it. - Homestay was so good. Nice food and good people.
At the end I would like to say plan your trip with PTU and capture your best memories to share on your social media gallery.read more

Must try to get a life time experience 🤩
Since this was my first trek, I was pretty unsure of how the experience will be.
But Plan the unplanned gave me a... wholesome experience of thrill, natural beauty, friendship and adventure in one single trek- Kudremukh.
I thank Muralidhar Setty for being an extremely patient and helpful Trek lead throughout the journey.
I totally loved each and every moment spent at Bella homestay too. The whole trek was well planned and executed.
Thankyou Plantheunplanned team for a wonderful experience that I'll cherish for life.read more
You just keep remembering those moments: that feeling at the peak, the games, evening walks and late night masti. PTU... has made my first trekking experience a memorable one. The meticulous planning and fun nature of track leads makes you feel right at home. Cheers to Mautushi and Abhilash.read more
It was my first Kurinjal trek with PTU.Great organisers with good experience. The best part of the trip was not only... itinerary which was promised and delivered ,but also the fun we had Mafia,Card games.The whole journey was memorable and made new friends.
Looking forward to have moreread more
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.
Edit: Joined planned the unplanned again for Madhugiri fort 1-day trek with my friends. Needless to say, we thoroughly enjoyed. It was the first trek for my friends and our trek leaders Yash, Prakriti and Oshin helped greatly. Coming to talk about the trek itself, Madhugiri was a good experience as it has the right amount of difficulty and adventure. Brownie point for us was that while returning, we impromptu stopped for a beautiful sunset at Devarayanadurga hills.read more
Well planned trip.Awesome people😍🤗.Enjoyed alot💃🤗
This was my first trek with Plan the Unplanned, and now after going to Nishani Motte Trek with PTU.
I can blindly... trust and book PTU for all my upcoming trek, coz it is so fun going with them, right from Icebreaker to trekking with professional and fun loving Trek leaders than late night Playing cards.
And most important thing we were 10 trekkers and 2 Trek leaders, each individual had their own way of enjoying the moment, and the trek leads were so cooperative in that.
Looking forward to trek with you guys again very soon.read more
I travelled on the 21st June weekend to Wayanad with ‘Plan the unplanned’. I was skeptical at first – my very close... friend had to push me hard to get on-board, since I am not a ‘trek guy’ in the first place - but it honestly turned out to be an absolutely amazing and unexpectedly good experience.

1. Ease of transportation, planning and arrangements– I’ve driven to a lot of places in south India, but nothing beats the comfort of having someone else do all these things for you and let you enjoy the trip without having to worry about anything. That’s a big USP – what will all our busy lives with work and all, the last thing I want to worry on my vacation is if the food is going to be alright or if the homestay is safe etc. – you get the point. The stress-free outsourcing of planning to experts actually helps.
2. If you go to google and do a search for “places to visit in Wayanad” – you will get the usual – and these usual places are boring, crowded and overhyped. Which brings me to the second point – we went to the most unexplored and beautiful places in Wayanad – names of which I still can’t pronounce. We played in the cleanest waters ever – and night camped at the most unusual viewpoints on hills. I am was scared of heights and water currents – and this trip has helped immensely in overcoming some of that fear. I don’t look like Hrithik Roshan, but I sure can relate to his feeling post his scuba diving experience in ZNMD.
3. However, at the end of the day, it’s people who make or break trips/planned outings like these. One, our trek leads – Prakriti and Megha – were absolutely amazing to say the least. They were extremely helpful, accommodating and really cool. Oh and bey the way, they’re great people in general too – genuine and welcoming. Two, the people we met on the trip were real fun – I was there with a very close friend of mine – and we came back with 4 more friends – how cool is that? Of course, we were lucky too because the people on this specific trip were really cool – this part of the experience might not be the same for everyone.

The second day’s plan were a bit off and we could’ve covered some more places. I’ve to mention though - it was partly affected by us lazing around in the homestay and leaving very late. Even so, not much of a buzz kill since even at the homestay people were enjoying a lot.
Everything said and done, I would easily rate it 4.7/5. The people, the seamless planning and the wonderful trek leads along with well-chosen itinerary made sure that the experience was really good even for non-trek people like me. A few points off for the second day plans– although we were partially responsible for it – leaving the homestay a bit too late. Bottomline – way to go, PTU 😊read more
It was my first trip with PTC and yeah I had a wonderful time😊 I had taken the waynad night trek package, it was a... pleasant and memorable journey throughout. My trek leads Prakrithi and Megha were very friendly and helpful..Day 1 was really good whereas I am a bit unhappy with the day 2 which dint go according to the iternary. Overall it was good.!read more
This was my first trek and first trip with plan the unplanned !.. they organized it well..the trek leaders ( prakrithi... and megha ) was good and amazing ..Trip with PTU not only make memories but also good friendsread more
An amazing experience with Plan the unplanned to Kudremukh. Right from the start of the trip till the end, the leads... kept the crowd engaging and made us more comfortable in getting to know each other.
Will be planning another trek very soon with PTU 😁read more
I must say the organisers were kick-ass.Tremendously talented guides Jolly and Adithya Iyer, they kept the trip lively... and happening with all the experience and stories. They were quick on their feet with everything that was needed at the hour. Very practical in their approach. Kudoes to the co-founders , both travelled overnight to the location to ensure things went as planned and they were with us all the while at the base camp. I think it's always amazing to travel with a bunch of unknowns.But the crowd this time was super exciting and fun. They were quick on their feet and had no setbacks with pacing ourselves to the top and back. Very enthusiastic bunch of 19. I would strongly recommend PTU for all the hard work they do and make you feel home. A big shout out to PTU and their wonderful crewread more
Kudremukh trek has been limited to 50 people per day and when we were supposed to go there were many groups including... ours waiting for the tickets. Jolly and adith managed to get 12 tickets inspite of the rush. The co founders came to kudremukh overnight and made sure all 19 of us got the tickets to trek. This was probably the best group of people I've trekked with, everyone pushed each other to reach the summit way before the anticipated time. From adith's stories to jolly's music to jathin's dancing I loved every bit! I loved how they focused on the experience itself. This included with the views made it an incredible experience. I'm definitely going back to other treks with plan the unplanned! Worth every bit ❤️read more
Plan The Unplanned organises great treks! It was one hell of an experience such amazing trek leads, made sure all of us... were comfortable and got well along with each other. Will look forward to going on more and more treks with them!read more

"Creating memories are a priceless gift. Memories will last a lifetime; things only a short-period of time."

I had gone to coorg for nishanimotte trek, which was my first experience with plan the unplanned. I had an amazing... experience. Trek leads were friendly and co-operative. The home stay and food was also good. Thanks for the amazing experience:)read more
True to its name, Plan The Unplanned lives up to its billing. Its not an easy task to find the perfect balance between... "being organized" and "being spontaneous" while travelling. Akshay and Prakriti, the trek leads, handled this aspect with great enthusiasm and care. They showed great maturity levels in handling a group that consisted of 15 year olds to 30 year olds:) Kudos to the team and wishing you all the success for crafting amazing experiences:)read more
Loved every part of the trek.The entire "Plan the Unplanned" team during the trek was out of the world.
I had an... awesome experience as I was the first time trekker in high mountain.
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of service we received during the trek.
Overall, this has furthered my craving for scaling many more high altitude mountains.Cheers....read more
Kodachadri - a splendid place to spend your weekend. I was wondering how it will be, will I be able to complete the... whole trek, like, many thoughts were running in my mind and I was half excited and half nervous. But believe it guys, the tan is totally worth! It was so beautiful and the view from top of the peak, Wah! It's so peaceful and mind blowing And, it was made easier by ''plan the unplanned''. I went solo and now I have got lifetime memories to cherish and bunch of friends to go crazy. And so strangers were turned into thick bonds. To the coordinators - big applause and salute.They encouraged me, when I losed my energy. They took care like, one would care a little puppy. They made all of us feel very comfortable and they are the best. To make us feel live, they conducted games and it was so much fun. Over all, without any second thoughts one can opt '' plan the unplanned'' and people, remember, they will give you unforgettable memories and you will wish to go again and again with them like a family. Thank you so much PTU.read more
This was my first trek & must say I had a wonderful experience with PTU. The transport,stay,food,activities everything... was very well organized.

Will cherish every moment of the trip and looking forward to go on more treks with PTU.read more

I enjoyed the Gokarna Beach Trek and Camping conducted by Plan the Unplanned. Good arrangements, decent food, and nice... guides make it a pleasant trip. I wished to remain in my own zone so that I could paint and write - and was happy to be given the space I needed.

The Wayanad Night Trek and Camping (17th - 20th May) was one of the best I have experienced.
The journey has lots to... offer - from trekking to the waterfalls in bus, jeep in narrow steep trails then by foot to night trek and camp on hill top sleeping in the backdrop of mountains and roof of the night sky lost in twinkling of natural and urban stars to be right amidst public in Banasura dam jet lining and playing kho kho as professionals.
What is different with PTU is that they insist on team bonding right from the bus trip in the onward journey, the collaboration with the teams PTU, homestay and camping was quite seamless. There were situations that took us by surprise as it was unplanned but was well dealt by the team. I am in the phase of getting back to active physical movement after an inactive period of few years and was very low in confidence. I found the entire team co-trekkers, PTU and others lending me a helping hand whenever needed. I came back with lot of learnings, inspiration, energy and confidence knowing a bit more of myself. Meeting and jelling with different flavors of people within 2 days was a pleasant surprise as I consider myself as not yet open but loving to be open personaread more
Kumta was my most recent trip with PTU. It is one of those treks that will automatically make you think, explore and... soothe your heart.
This trek was one of a kind and will always be memorable.
Trek leads - Amit and Jolly kept us all on our feet!
Jolly filled us with the history of different spots - the right way to teach history ;)
He was kind and helpful which automatically set in a comfort level for each one of us. I hope I get to trek with Jolly more in the future, he was treat to have.
Amit was THE epitome of the description - Enthu Cutlet. He was joyous and carefree and motivated us to be the same too. One of the best trek leads I've even been with.
Homestay - There is no better home than the seashore. We slept in tents and hammocks where towards our right was the roaring ocean and left, the ruins of history, standing strong.
Would definitely recommend PTU as all you have to do is book your trek and start to chill, they will do the rest and will not disappoint.

plan the unplanned is the best trek group I have been with. you just don't need to worry about anything just the trip... and memories. the home stays which they provided for us in wayanad is so amazing you don't even feel like coming back. Two days went like an hour. the places they chose for us are so so good we won't be able to explore ourselves for sure with our Google Maps . True soul filling places. I can't thank enough ptu for giving us life long memories to cherish. I recommend everyone to opt for ptu. once you start I'm pretty sure you won't stop.I can't thank enough abhilash and bhusan our trek leaders. These guys handled every thing so perfectly and smoothly all over the trip .Perfect plannersread more
I and my sister were searching something on which I can take my 9 yr daughter. I found "Gokarna-beach Trek" very... interesting to go along with her. Though we are a little scared about "how she will do" or basically "Is it possible for her?" or "Will she walk 10km stretch?" We had called her so many time for enquiring basically for my daughter only and they answered patiently each time. But I am very happy with the response my daughter get on the trek. Not even she walked whole stretch but also she enjoyed it. The leaders took very good care of her. She returned with lots of memories. I really appreciate there attempt and very happy the way they looked after each and every thing. We are looking forward for more trek with the PTU.read more
Just finished my first solo trek with PTU to Gokarna. This trek was led by Monica, Karthik and Prakruti and found all... of them to be understanding and supportive. I have been to gokarna before but the way this was covered by PTU gave me a totally different perspective of this place. The fellow trekkers were mostly young folks and inspite of big age gap I did not feel uncomfortable. The campsite was clean and located right on the beach. Breakfast provided was decent and bathroom were among the best i have seen for campsites. Overall it was a good experience and I would recommend others to join trips through PTU.read more
Definitely a one stop shop for all your trek needs. They cover a huge range of trips varying from scuba diving to... bouldering. The trips are very well planned and carefully executed. I had a great time with the entire group !!read more
