Himalayan Fantasy was established to provide most memorable experience for travellers to Himalayan region of Ladakh be it for LEISURE, CULTURE or ADVENTURE.

The founder of Himalayan Fantasy after working for a considerable years in Software Development both in India and abroad, chose to follow his passion of Himalayas by starting this company which conducts tours or treks like a well established corporate organisation which has customer satisfaction as its main focus and to measure that the organisation maintains transparency of operations and making sure that they get to know of location, hotels and stay, local cuisine and transport so that there are no “odd surprises” and they enjoy their vacation without any “stress”

The staff of Himalayan Fantasy also believes in this ethos and follow the set process and standards for every tour or adventure activities thus making customers delighted with service.

2. We are engaged completely from planning the itinerary to completion of event.

STORY
Himalayan Fantasy began its life as leisure travel and adventure: an idea the founder Vilas Kadival, PMP, CSM dreamt all the time while visiting various locations in the Himalayas from 2001 onwards.

While on travel, he had seen travelers getting cheated, frustrated and agonized instead of having stress-free vacation. He started helping people by connecting them to the right tour operators and suggesting the routes / locations which caters to particular interests  and making them experience joy and happiness while on vacation.

What started  just as a hobby, turned out to be a start-up venture on the evening of 28th July 2013, the founder decided to move out of the “rat race” in Corporate jungle to share joy and happiness with people by making their vacation stress free.

The founder, Vilas being an avid Software Developer at heart and worked as Director of Development in a Software company had requisite technology and location experience to blend what is termed in Project Management as managing triple constraints: Scope, Schedule and Budget.

Every traveler has these three limitations and this is what Vilas knows the best thus  making leisure holidays or adventure “stress free experience” for travelers.

Now, that’s the story and history in making. Join us to one of these tours to feel the difference we make to tours or adventure.

Come and experience “Live your dreams….”
