Greetings.. I am Kamal, the host for "hilloferry - a guided Bike Ride" experience on Airbnb which is a cycling tour amidst nature. I am born and brought up here in Dharamshala and a nature lover.
It just happened that once I got a request from a guest that they wanted to experience the nature and region in a hilloferry way but they were not keen on cycling and so it was decided to have a nature walk. The experience went well and so I am excited to have this as an offering too..
Walking is another activity which correlates to cycling in terms of nature's joy, simplicity, eco-friendliness and less touristy stuff I aspire to share, but still very different in it's own unique way.. Hope you will enjoy!!

I couldn't do the hike due to weather conditions so instead went ahead with the cycling experience with kamal. He was extremely kind and accommodating to ensure that my experience was comfortable and enjoyable. He also shares facts about the place and takes pictures wherever you would like to for memories. Thanks Kamal for such a nice experience. I would suggest that anyone who visits Dharamshala signs up for this activity.

It was such such such an amazing experience! The place that Kamal showed us was so beautiful and he made sure to tell us things about the location. The entire trek was enjoyable. The host even got us litchis off a tree in his house and they were yum ! From clicking pictures to holding meaningful conversations to being careful about our safety, Kamal did it all !

I went for the Naddi hike with Kamal. I would not have discovered that trail on my own as a new comer! When we first started, there was rainfall followed by a short spell of a hailstorm. But I was lucky. Both of the natural events stopped as soon as they had started. The weather after that was super pleasant. Kamal was very patient and took great care of every single aspect of the hike. He took pictures of me (something that a solo traveller needs!) and he selected the most easy routes to take while on the way to the temple and the way back down. The views from the hill are jaw dropping. Absolutely spectacular! I could not stop taking pics. I unfortunately did not have enough time to hike all the way up to the temple with Kamal but the views from where I stood were still brilliant. Kamal brought grapes, biscuits, and a wind cheater for me. All were very helpful during the hike. He is extremely friendly and a great conversationalist. Definitely book this experience with Kamal! It will be the highlight of your stay. He’s a fantastic guide. I am definitely booking this experience with him again once I’m back. These great memories will stay with me forever.

I went on a trek with Kamal in April 2021. Glad that I did it! Although I was in McLeod Ganj for 4–5 days already, I was still missing on exploring the non-touristy trails around the region. Kamal’s nature trek fitted my requirement perfectly! Right from the moment I booked it, Kamal has been communicating about the location, the time required, what to wear, etc. He took me on a path which started at Naddi, with awesome views of both the Shivalik and Dhauladhar mountains. Breathtaking views of mountains, valleys, streams, birds, and an ancient temple at one of the mountain peaks. one really has to experience it! He is an ardent supporter of sustainable tourism and truly believes in creating a memorable experience to the visitors. Very humble, welcoming and careful about the physical requirements for walking and trekking. He even carried fruits and water for both of us! I highly recommend Kamal’s nature trek for those people (like me) who are lazy to go on stressful long treks, but would like to explore the beautiful mountains at a relaxed pace. Those who enjoy the path more than reaching a destination, you know what I mean..

The trek from Naddi to beyond Village Bal has a spectacular scenery. We started the trek by 3 pm and finished by 7pm because of which we were able to see the different colors shimmering off in the clouds and trees. Kamal was well equipped with biscuits and water and biscuits and trust me we needed them :) Its not as strenuous or long as Triund and I found it quite relaxing. Its a less walked path hence its quite calm. Definitely go for the trek and as Kamal would say - Its not about the destination, its about the journey.
