How did we come into Existence?

“I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

The Journey of P.W.R started with a bike trip to Ladakh in 1999 with some friends and has grown over the years to become a leading expeditions organizer to the Himalayas. With years of exploring the mountains our team has traveled through and explored some of the remotest parts of the Himalayas and bring to you our years of experience in some unique Tours.

"I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference."

How We Plan

Over the years our team has also collected our own specialized equipment, camping gear, Medical gear and other paraphernalia that can be used in any sort of situation during an expedition. We also believe in empowering the local communities and as a rule prefer to use hotels / homestays that are owned and operated by the locals, this provided a unique opportunity to our travelers to interact with the Local people and understand their culture and way of life better which helps us to promote sustainable tourism in a friendly manner at our unique destinations.

Our core planning lies in the following areas :

Research

Transport

Budgeting

Visas

Insurance

Training, Fitness & Diet

Equipment

Communication

We believe in meticulous planning and efficient execution of the expedition plans for a safe, soulful and rejuvenating journey.

Wonderful Experience The experience of visiting Spiti along with friends was just awesome, this was my first time in such extreme weather conditions, -28 degree was the max that we were in but it was all worth taking the pain when you enjoy the scenic beauty of Spiti Valley. PWA planned our trip with utmost ease, covering the maximum places in such weather conditions. They had also planned for any contingencies which may arise due to the weather conditions, we had to alter our plan for one day where we changed our destination. Rahul and Saurabh are a wonderful planner and they know the valley really well. One of the best travel planners of the valley. We were 14 people including Rahul and Saurabh, it all felt like a group of friends travelling together. We partied together, enjoyed together. One of the best trip done in the recent times and every memory will be cherished for life. Thanks PWA team for making it such a wonderful experience.

Enjoyable, Memorable experience We went with PWA for the snow chain expedition to spiti! Big thanks to Rahul and Saurabh for organising the expedition in a clever way so that we could cover maximum places safely! Rahul has good knowledge of the places and takes smart decision as required! This enabled us to reach Kaza without losing much days in between, where as we saw many other groups had to stay back in Narkanda due to harsh weather! Of course there were practical difficulties we had to go through which is part of such a trip during this harsh weather which Rahul gives us prior warnings ans prepares us! He also provides medical advice as and when required! Above all we felt like a group of friends travelling together and partying all the way! Highly recommended for Spiti winter trip!!

Experience of a lifetime The trip was totally amazing! We all knew the risks but what we didn't know was that Rahul and his team has a backup plan for every single thing that could go wrong. That's the kind of experience these people have. Stays were in the best options available in each place. And the things you learn from the places and these people are the things that stay with you a really long time. They tried to accommodate all our special requests too. Rahul used to work as an Ayurvedic doctor, he has learnt homeo medicine and he also has good knowledge about English medicine, so I should say you are in good hands even when it comes to health concerns. He carries a briefcase full of medicines. If you really want an experience of a lifetime then just go for it!

Winter Spiti drive An amazing experience of Winter snow drive in Spiti. Mesmerizing views of snow clad mountains and adventurous drive on snow, survival in - 27 degree, stay in local homestays of spiti region to experience local culture and food. All this was possible due to planet way round team Mr. Rahul and Mr. Saurabh, tremendous and well coordinated efforts from them to keep us safe and comfortable in such harsh climate in terms of cosy stays, delicious local foods and sincere guidance to drive safely on slippery snow and maintain our vehicle in freezing temperatures. A well organised professional team who take care of us through out the journey. An unforgettable experience. Will surely do more trips with them in future. Thanks PWR team
