With Backpackers, it was a real adventure. The guide provided by your company had a very excellent knowledge and also he was well equipped with the medicines for any emergency. I had not seen this before. I was alone when I checked with you for a trek, but after the trek, I was happy to identify 6 new friends.

I will not only recommend your services to others but will also be a lifetime member of your group in the future. Do consider me for all the future trekking events in Maharashtra

I went to the Pawna Dam trek on 1st June & what an amazing experience it was. Pranav, the group organizer is calm & sorted which helps a lot in organizing successful adventure trips. Everyone was fun loving & stayed together as a 1 integrated group all through the journey.

The letter of appreciation is for the river rafting done by my son with BackPackers Outdoor.
When my son, aged 13 years asked me for a river rafting, I was not at all in the mood to allow him for a river rafting being known that he doesn’t know swimming. But as a friend of mine referred your name, I thought to just give it a chance. My friend gave me a very positive feedback about your company and so I decided to send my son alone with your group.

I will take a chance to appreciate your group guide and your company as each and every aspect of the tour was covered by you very nicely. The clean bus from the start to the dinner, in the end, showed your professionalism and seriousness towards your work. My son was very delighted & happy and is eagerly waiting for your next river rafting tour with his friends who will also join him. I as a mother is now absolutely feeling secured when it comes to the safety of my child.

Thank you very much and all the very best for your future tours.


As a homemaker, I used to always prefer to stay at home. I am an adventure loving person, but I had afeared to actually do it. Though my daughter and husband always insisted me to go for treks, rafting, gliding, I used to postpone it for many reasons. Maybe the fear in me had overtaken the joy of doing something adventurous.

One day, through a neighbor of mine, I came to know about Backpackers. Their son had gone to the paragliding activity conducted by Backpackers and was saying all good words of appreciation about them. I kept my fingers crossed and enrolled for the activity which was scheduled on the coming Sunday. The fees were also very reasonable. We had to take our own vehicle and we reached at around 3 pm at Pavna Nagar near Lonavala. My blood pressure was on a rise and I think it had reached its max when I actually saw the paragliding activity. I decided to skip it and try next time.

It was then when I met Pranav of backpackers. He explained to me all the things including the safety equipment, flying rules, wind flow, precautions, and training. I was eased a bit. But still was in a dilemma whether to go for it or not. But lastly, as he cleared all my doubts and gave me the confidence that I needed, I decided to fly.

The further experience can’t be described in words as I recommend everyone to actually do it once in a lifetime. It really feels like heaven as you watch the surroundings from the bird’s eye. This experience proved an icebreaker for me and I did another 2 sessions of paragliding the next month itself.

Hats off to Pranav and his team, for such a wonderful and memorable experience of my life.

The group is getting mature with more n more good people. Every trip requires the contribution of each n every member to make it a big success. The good thing is that I have seen the spirit in the last two trips that are required for any successful group. Rajgad n Mahabaleshwar trips were amazing and I have only attended these two. All the best Pranav for future trips and yes you are doing a fabulous job.
