My journey with Jugni started with me desperately trying to go to Leh-Ladakh because duh. But unfortunately all the packages happen to exceed my budget that time. Hence, I was looking for alternatives not wanting to waste my leaves. I stumbled upon Jugni's website and Spiti-Lahaul package caught my eye. I appreciate how they are transparent with their package price. Since I dont know Hindi, I prepared myself to spend most of my time alone for the entire trip with 2 books. Little did I know at that time, I would earn friends for life through this trip. I met Rohit Khattar and Nitesh Chauhan in Delhi with some of the travelers. They were already waiting for the rest of the gang and they were all cracking up jokes which I couldn't understand. That was Day 1. That awkwardness seems like ages ago. Everything after that is sheer fun and exhilaration for me. Rohit is a responsible person, very adjusting (sometimes to the extent of waiting for 30-40 mins but please dont take advantage of it), a team player - always keeping in mind what is best for the group. Nitesh is a comedian by nature. He is one of the most genuine person I have ever met. You can talk to him about anything. Absolutely lovable. He made my entire trip a highlight. As an extrovert turned introvert, I'd like to travel alone mostly. But together with this dynamic duo, I wouldn't mind travelling with groups anymore. I'll see you guys soon. Aram se :) "There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met - W.B. Yeats"
I have so much to write about Jugni and our Spiti trip. If you love travelling to beautiful destinations, your interest lies in knowing the place and culture thoroughly, you want to have a well-organized trip without any hiccups, you want to experience how it feels when you travel with strangers and learn a lot about life and most importantly, you want a happy trip, then trust Jugni. The Jugni team will leave no stone unturned to make it the trip of your lifetime. For me it is one of the best trips ever and I would now happily recommend Jugni to every friend who wants to make her travel dreams come true. If I have to tell what the USP of Jugni is, I would say the two gentleman and their understanding with each other and with the fellow jugnis. They take care of us, they motivate us during rough treks, make us laugh whenever possible, help us bond well with people around and make us feel very very comfortable throughout the journey. It is not at all a money making thing for them, it is their passion, which they share with fellow jugnis with love and try hard to make it a pleasurable experience. Rohit is a very calm and composed guy who will always look after your needs. Such a wonderful and caring person he is :-). And the jaan of Jugni is Nitesh, a very cute person, who will not at all spare you with his funny talks and will make the journey even more beautiful. He and his jokes :-) . OMG!! Ah!! I am still in the travel hangover. I am glad I came to know about Jugni and had an amazing trip to Spiti. Wish you two a beautiful future ahead full of achievements and success.
So, I traveled to Europe with Jugni and have no idea as to how should i pour my heart out for the trip and the boys. To be precise (which is quite difficult) it was a very, very well planned and managed tour. Comfort level was commendable and fun at its maximum! Totally worth the days i spared out of my schedule. Nitesh & Rohit are a perfect combination of highly aware and equipped travelers/our managers. Extremely patient and chilled out creatures! Nitesh makes you drop your social guards pretty quickly. He is the funniest man alive! My girls and i laughed our lungs out during the trip! Rohit is very smart and aware with the schedules. Talks less but that is not a drawback at all :) Is equally involved in the well-being of all the girls and leading a perfect plan. Jugni is the best thing happened to me in a very long while and i am going to cherish it for life. I am seeing you guys again at the earliest! Words cant wish enough good luck or thank you two :) PS - Anika had teary eyes after we waved goodbye to you :P i had a heavy heart too though.
Leh was always on my bucket list and Jugni did it for me and how! :) I don't know where to even begin. Loved how everything was taken care of, how every little requests (mad ones too) were acknowledged and completed. From airport transfers to hotel/ resorts/ homestay and local sightseeing arrangements. From shopping to bike rides to eating mutton kebabs at the roadside stall, everything was spot on! We also got to go rafting at Sangam (which came out as a random thought, a request from one of the girls and it was acknowledged by the lovely hosts, yet again :)) Even got lucky and ate at the Pathar Sahib Gurudwara. Who would have thought of that! What an experience it has been. Going to miss all the early morning frantic knocks on our doors, shoving bottles and bottles of water down our throats (Khattar, read this :D), the crazy drives (special shoutout to Kunzang, Stenzen and Yunus (hasmukh), the treks that caused tears and breathlessness, all the songs we played in our cars and destroyed lyrics by a certain someone (mentioned below :D), the bonfires, starry nights, snow mountains and valleys, the joy of watching the gorgeous full moon in a spotless sky, shooting stars, the super awesome biryani we ate in the middle of nowhere, amazing green tea, the love of daadi serving us yummy food in her home, the warm people of Leh and their smiles and the time spent with all the new friends I made on this trip. Thank you Khattar and Nitesh for making this happen for all of us. Special thanks to you Nitesh for keeping our spirits high at all times and making us laugh till our stomachs began to hurt. You have an amazing knack of making people laugh and keeping them happy. Keep doing that for as long as you can :) Until we meet again #JugniForLife #GirlPower
Ibn Batuta truly said 'travelling leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller'.. And since my return from an offbeat destination (which was never on my bucket list) KAZAKHSTAN, I haven’t stopped thinking & telling stories about our trip. This beautiful country welcomed us with warm smiles and their great hospitality! With Jugni Travel, I got to experience breathtaking landscapes, snow capped mountains, stunning blue water lake, rich russian culture and a lot more.. Altogether, it was one hell of pure enjoyment! Thank you Jugni Travel, aka Nitesh & Rohit for giving me several wonderful trip memories, which I will cherish life long. You guys simply rock !! You duo ensured quality tour itinerary, comfortable stay in the midst of Almaty combined with chilly night outs/ strolls, fun filled bus rides, relishing local cuisines, and a lot more. Days smoothly flew with city explorations along with non stop crazy laughs (which leaves you with watery eyes) and in making new friendships (the jugnis!!). Nitesh took the stage and loaded us with his non stop comic stories, whereas Rohit mostly stayed at the background as a silent observer and captured perfect shots in his DSLR. Our Jugnoos made sure of good comfort, care and complete safety of all Jugnis all the time! The best part with Jugni is they let you be who you are! No hush-bush, no cramped agenda and no rules.. With this, I all the more watched and enjoyed the journey unfold the way I wanted to experience. Thank you once again for executing such an amazing trip, giving new friends and making me a more confident person!! :) Hoping to explore more new destinations with you guys soon… Best Wishes & Warm Regards!
I first read about Jugni on ScoopWhoop. I have visited India as an adult just once with my family, hence, I was skeptical about going for a trip alone with a bunch of strangers. I contacted Jugni and was connected to Nitesh Chauhan. I booked myself for Lahaul - Spiti 10 days trip a month in advance. Nitesh was always in touch to answer all my questions and assure me that my safety was guaranteed irrespective of what I had read and heard about women travelling in India. The day I landed in India, I contacted Nitesh after checking in my hotel. Sensing my apprehension, Nitesh arrived with a McDonald's meal and Blue Balloon . Following that meeting, I was introduced to Rohit Khattar and other girls in our group. Our journey was awesome and both boys and all girls ensured that I had my "mineral bottle of water" at all times. Bus and car hired were excellent. I had never imagined India the way I experienced in these 10 days. I will definitely cherish the memories of this trip and the caring nature of both boys for all their girls :)
Jugni – When you fly without wings! Bir-Biling was my first trip with Jugni, after a lot of planning + deferring it multiple times + numerous discussions with mom + last minute decision making (+ praying to god that I will be back alive). As much as I wanted to appear prepared & responsible, it started the bollywood way with me being 45 mins late. I miscalculated the time to reach Kashmere ISBT & metro was just extremely slow that day (it seemed at least). A part of me thought I won’t be able to make it & felt very very stupid, the other baniya part of me started calculating the money these guys will refund if I don’t make it :D. I kept jugnoos updated of the status & diligently apologized every time I called, but they were absolute sweethearts. Frankly I was bowled with the patience & the service gesture (minus few grins I got from both of them). So post the shaky start I was so happy & excited to meet rest of the gals, there were 10 @ ISBT & 2 more to join later. BTW, this was my first solo trip ever ( oh yes finally happened!), which explains the animated (over) description. Initially I guess we all were a lil quiet ( I know sounds unreal with a dozen gals), but it dint take much time for us to break the ice & then the chatter just wouldn’t stop. I am not sharing the specifics of the itinerary or where we stayed & what we did. What I wanna share with all potential & existing jugnis is that this was a very special & unique trip for me. It was not about fancy hotel rooms, fluffy towels, relaxing spas, fine-dining resto, this involved not taking bath for 2 days (apparently jugnis don’t bathe!), exertion during the trek, sleeping in a bag & peeing in an ass-chilling enclosure ( called the washroom tent). This trip was about gazing at the stars, talking to locals, not being on mails/whatsapp, having yumm chicken curry in torch light, appreciating the localites for what they do, feeling relaxed in spite of being dead tired, & more over it was just about being with yourself. About the trek, 2 important realizations – 1. I am not as fit as I thought I was 2. Rohit lies when he says only couple of minutes more! About paragliding, my first time & I felt like a bird ( a lil overweight, scared & tensed bird initially), but vei memorable & enjoyable! And for a 26 year old corporate 9*9 kind of a person – c’mon its adventure! Bir-Biling is extremely scenic, picturesque landscape & not too commercialized – PURE BLISS. Jugnoos did their homework well & everything was very smooth & seamless. They also showed us the cult side with visit to Buddhist monastery – another one of a kind experience. I am extremely impressed with the place, jugnoos, other fun & friendly jugnis & myself (well I did take the plunge& flew without wings – literally) Have to admit this trip happened after a lot of apprehension & deliberation ( I carried pepper spray) , but these guys ensured all of us enjoyed & had one hell of a trip! All the best jugnoos for whatever you set out for, loads of love & tons of wishes <3 Hope to have many more trips! - A vei happy Jugni (Khushboo)
I had a fantastic time with Jugni at Bir-Billing. I have never traveled with a group like this and never in my wildest dreams thought I would do and will have so much fun! I am generally quiet and hardly talk in front of strangers, but the two Jugnus (Nitesh and Rohit) made me feel soooo comfortable that I never for a moment thought that I was with a bunch of unknown people. Nitesh, in his own comical way, made sure everyone bonded well right from the boarding point. He cracked jokes, made the Jugnis feel really comfortable, bore their tantrums very sweetly and made sure they were having fun. Rohit (pahadon ka devta!) bucked up the girls during the trek, counting the number of girls every now and then. :) Hats off to these guys for being so caring, cool, responsible and empathic. Never for a moment did I see any frustration on the guys’ faces even when I made them walk one extra kilometer in the scorching heat to get my watch back from the room. Or even when in the middle of the trek, one of the Jugnis said that she wanted to go back. The Jugnus very patiently focused on our comfort, displaying an amazingly calm attitude. I am glad that I decided to let go of my inhibitions and travel with Jugni. I met some really nice people and made amazing friends. I am now looking forward to exploring many more places with Jugni! And another special thanks to the Jugnus for creating a platform like this for single women travelers. You are doing girls like me a great favor! :) *take a bow*
MALANA....given a choice...I wouldn't have picked up this place in the first go...did trekking..which is SERIOUSLY not my cup of tea....but the saying "To travel is to take a journey into yourself" and this is what it turned out to be...An Eye Opener for me..I always thought that I am pretty active and have decent stamina...but when we started the trek...out of 13 women...I was the first one to give up...there were females older as well as younger than me. After completing the trek....the breathtaking view of valley..Amazing singing by Shweta & Jammu (Roshni).Yoga on the Hilltop....spending time on the river Parvati....Dip in the Hot water @ Manikaran...unlimited chats with taxi drivers...Loads of memories ..Thanks to Laxmi for letting us know about Jugni, Gola (Nitesh) for all the Panic attacks, Khattar (Rohit) for pitthugiri, Rachna for breathing exercises and the entire gang...for making it an amazing...Superb Guys....Jugni....looking forward to another one with you...let Kabir come in...
How do I describe the prefect vacation (Kazakhstan), a trip of a lifetime that exceeded all expectations? I must start by saying thank you to Nitesh & Rohit who took the effort to plan the trip. Every one of our days were personalized with every last detail taken care of, our tour guide and driver so knowledgeable about history and local customs, all with great personalities ,each excursion planned and executed to perfection. Rohit & Nitesh were determined to make each one us feel like the most important people in the world. As for our accommodations, the rooms were lovely and in the perfect location, with great staff that went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Waiting for us upon our arrival was our local guide with our complete itinerary, all necessary vouchers, an extensive list of recommended places & restaurants, but everything was so perfect we didn't need to call her - yet she called us to check on our well-being – how wonderful! I can't say enough about how pleasant it was to with her and share the company of her during our trip. There were times we thought it couldn’t get any better and then we were surprised with extra experiences we didn’t expect or plan, but our travel specialist surely did, like wonderful lunches and dinners that included special dishes seemingly prepared just for us by chefs who highlighted local specialties and most superb vodka & wine & beer... It is impossible to choose the most enjoyable or memorable parts of our trip because every day was filled with wonderful experiences and surprises, something for all of us to enjoy, as well as many first time experiences that provided lasting impressions and memories. We shared tours of many awe inspiring and historical sights, numerous cultural experiences, enjoyed travelling around the small townsand great people we met, In short, I have never been taken care of so well - wherever we went, night and day, I found myself in a dream like state with an awe-struck grin plastered on my face. Simply put, these 2 boys sure planned and delivered the perfect vacation and I could not be more thankful for everything !The only thing I would change is to add more days to the trip because I didn’t want it to end Choosing JUGNI was the best decision I've made all year! Jugni Travel – Because your memories deserve it !!!!
Two sisters who wanted to fly like birds got wings when they met #Jugni (Rohit Khattar & Nitesh Chauhan). After chasing our parents for one month and requesting them to allow us to go with Jugni, they finally gave us permission to go for this amazing trip to Bir-Biling. We showed the itinerary to our parents and after thoroughly reading it, they both were 30% satisfied. Our parents came to see us off and meet the two guys who were organizing the trip. They scanned both the guys from head to toe, observed & pondered for at least 15 minutes at the meeting point. Then Rohit said "Uncle tension nai lijiye sab safe hoga. Humari responsibility hai kuch nai hoga". Now the satisfaction level of Taneja's parents reached 35%. We sat on the bus feeling jittery about the journey, but it went fine. We reached Bir where cars were already parked for taking us to our guest house which was a 4-room accommodation with clean rooms & proper washrooms. Now Taneja sisters are 50% satisfaction. After freshening up, we went for our breakfast to a fancy garden restaurant that served delicious cheese & masala omelets, although their services was pretty slow, for only two persons were preparing breakfast for a group of 15. And it's absolutely fine, laid-back travelers like us wont mind such delays. Now the trek begins with 13 great ladies and these two hardworking founders. One of the guys (Nitesh) remained ahead of the group and the other (Rohit) walked at the end with the weaker lot (that included us). Rohit is a jack of all trades. From multi-tasking and managing the travel for women of every age, he goes the extra mile to ensure a really really great travel that remains etched in your mind & particularly in your heart. While trekking, he was there to buck you up, hold your bags, jackets, cell-phones, water bottles- you name it. He encourages you at every step and sits with you at your every break. His extreme patience makes you feel guilty & forces you to stand up again. He calmly listens to your silly chatter, gives an irritated look and does laugh together like your friend. I can't resist sharing the incidence when he specially walked back in the mountains just to get some food for a girl in our group. She was extremely exhausted and didn't seem fine. Our trek was about to finish and he could have pacified here by saying the same to her. But he ran all the way downwards to find food for her. Think about Nitesh and a smile will come to your face! A highly talented stand-up comedian and a responsible founder was always there to make us laugh, assist us to washroom & pamper every single lady in the group. While trekking, he specially carried an extra bag for holding the stuff of the tired girls and extra water bottles for our journey. After ten minutes of catching our bus to Delhi, a girl realized that she forgot her phone at a petrol pump where we waited for the bus. Nitesh rushed back with her and brought her phone. Rohit & Nitesh at #Jugni not only take care of the major services like transportation or accommodation, but they also assure the highest level of satisfaction, safety & joy an Indian women seek from travel. Not all travel organizers do this for their clients but Rohit & Nitesh exactly know their job and push the envelope for yours & your family's 100% satisfaction.
Parvati Valley-Kheerganga Trek Travelling for leisure or adventure in India and by Indians elsewhere has been the pet preserve of Indian men or the proverbial Hindu undivided family. But the winds of change are steadily moving towards women with wanderlust! . Two young men have set out to be drivers of this change. Jugni the women-only budget travelling group is the brainchild of the dynamic duo of Rohit Khattar and Nitesh Chauhan. These two 20 something guys are a case study in how opposites attract. I was a frequent leisure traveler and sporadic trekker until some debilitating life events took their toll. Since my move to the NCR region a couple of months ago, I had been on the lookout for travel company among like minded individuals. Jugni was a word-of mouth recommendation from an acquaintance who had done some a couple of trips with them since the inception in January 2015. A little online research and the gut feeling of the vagabond inside me, made me sign up for their 5-7th September trek to #Kheerganga. Honestly, my intention was to test the waters and Jugni did not disappoint. We started out journey, a motley crew of seven, from Mandi house station on the night of 4th Sept. With a couple of stops for replenishment including the famed Sukhdev dhaba, we were at Kasol, Himanchal Pradesh fourteen hours later. Post- monsoons the 530 kms can be a choppy ride due to broken roads and infrastructure development work, but Jugni’s co-founder, Nitesh was our jester on demand. He happens to moonlight as a stand-up comic at several venues including our mini-bus that night. In the morning our eyes opened to the milky Parvati river flowing beside us. Huge chir pine trees provided shade through the meandering roads. A lavish breakfast, ablutions and change of clothes at the Moon Dance cafe in Kasol, had us refreshed for a further forty minute ride to Barshaini, the base of the Kheerganga trek. Over seasons of trekking, I have developed some simple rules: walk at your own pace, never compete with fellow trekkers, stay with your group no matter what, the journey is more important than the destination so always research your route in advance. But nothing had prepared me for what followed in the next six hours of our 13 km trek to the top. I must confess that In my eagerness to explore trekking companionship, I had forgotten to research my trek route. The kheerganga trek is not a difficult one and can take between 3 to 5 hours depending on your speed and daylight visibility. Several sweet water rivulets flow underneath thick roots and dense foliage. As we inched our way along the route, co-trekker Sheel plucked apples and made friends with village kids on the way. We glanced with envy as old and young women skipped through the heavily pebbled route with ease and we struggled to find a solid footing here and there. The air was quite festive as we met local folk on their way back after making offerings at the Shiva temple on the top. By evening we had covered a little more than half distance.We stopped frequently to enjoy the scenic beauty of the Deodar covered hills, floral delights and of course to take group and solo pictures on bridges and waterfalls. Night pounced on us almost suddenly as we entered the last leg of the trek which was a dense forest of deodar and pine trees. Five Jugnis lit the jungle that night, with their torches and brave spirit. Conversation had dropped down to a trickle as we all focussed on our step. Nitesh keot the air alive with his witty one liners although I suspect most of it was to suppress his fear of the dark! We used all our light sources including my kindle, that I had initially been advised not to carry. Our eyes and ears sometimes played tricks on us even as the moonlight played hide and seek through the trees and the sound of insects made their presence clear everywhere. On our way up we did come across a couple of brave souls who were doing the downward trek at that late hour. We reached the top at around 9:30 pm, exhausted, elated and famished. Night-stay was quickly arranged at Shiva Cafe, a simple log house with community sleeping arrangements. A warm fire welcomed us as we sat around and each took a swig of Old Monk to warm our parched throats and chilled bones. The rajma, chawal, sabji,roti and achaar set in front of us tasted divine. We let the hippy-like atmosphere sink in a bit and before we knew it, we were dreaming away to glory. When I look back on that mesmerising night-time trek, a first for all five jugnis, I feel that if there was one firefly that shined the brightest that night, it was Rohit Khattar. I have rarely come across a more sensible head on such young shoulders. Rohit is a veteran of some of the toughest trekking trails in India. He is the reason why your trekking or travelling experience with Jugni will turn out to be one of the most fruitful outdoor learning experiences of your life. This guy has a mountain of patience and skill and rightly calls himself an “outdoor educator”. His watchful gaze makes sure that you are taking your steps right. He has the kind cruelty of a surgeon when he rations the amount of water one is allowed to take during a trek. I owe him a huge thanks since he almost handheld me for 45 minutes during the night trek and Nitesh did the honours for the remaining 15-20 minutes to the top. Sonal rechristened him as “Shravan Kumar” for his chivalry! Like a military sergeant, Rohit woke us up at 6 the next morning. About a 100-200 meters further up, we came to the famous hot-springs. Locals have created hamam-like structures for community bathing. Dunking our tired legs in the hot water was pure nirvana! For the religiously inclined there is a shiva temple to visit nearby. A couple of hot aloo parathas with pickles and refreshing glasses of chai prepared us for our return trek to Barshaini. We started at 9 am and reached base at around 2-2:30 pm.As we boarded our ride to Kasol, we all looked back across the hills we had befriended in the past 24 hours, at the tumultus Parvati river and mentally congratulated ourselves. After this trip, I am a diehard Jugni now, yearning for my next sojourn to lands unknown, with trusted company.
Time has flown since I have returned from Leh Ladakh (“Leah”) still reliving my trip through Photos, Facebooks and Videos. It was an absolutely wonderful and Unforgettable experience. All kudos to the Organiser “ Jugni”. It was my first trip with “Jugni” and it was incredible and memories will remain with me for the rest of my life. On the first day of our arrival in Leh, our trip itinerary,” Do and Don’ts “specially tabbed and organized with each day activity was waiting for us. I was impressed by the detailed and well planned itinerary keeping in mind the juganis( as they call Women Travelers ) are of different age group . Throughout the trip We never felt hurried or exhausted by the pace. The moment we arrived, we experienced what we expected with some little extra touches of – Hot water, soup and Tablet of “Dimox” and loads of rest as recommended to get acclimatize to high Altitude that made us feel much better…. Jugni, pulled together for us a fascinating and unforgettable trip. Although there were 13 members in our group of different age group( 20-60) , Jugni did an outstanding job of scheduling and rescheduling our destinations keeping in mind High Altitude, Freezing temperature, Long Distances And Snow fall. I was touched by their personal gesture when they ensured that we call our Parent/Family members at the time of Earthquake in Nepal as Mobile Connectivity is always a challenge in High Altitude. I enjoyed our night at the tent and Home stay at “Chacha ji’s home which was fun to explore, loved the experience of pitching the Tent and all the efforts of fixing the Torch in the Tent to get the Best Shot of Tent, Stars, Mountains and Jugnis at Midnight. Also visit to Thicksey Monastery in the Indus Valley and Lunch with the monks and Lamas was extremely wonderful. And Special mention of Nitesh who made travelling so easy and stress free with his Jokes of “ School block” that I didn’t get to know how many mountains or Kilometers I have covered. And at the same time Enthusiastic Rohit Khattar would leave no place without explaining the history/stories behind the Stupas , Gompas and Monasteries . Extremely impressed by his knowledge of Indus Valley Civilization and Tibetan History& Culture . Rohit took our vague ideas & fleshed out the most delightful adventure trek to Leh Palace and Himshey Palace and Magnetic Hill. From the planning stages to the conclusion of the trip they ensured no request was too small and all questions were answered thoroughly and trip itself ran like clockwork. It truly amazed me that they checked up on each one of us while travelling to high altitude- Chang-la and Khardungla ensuring each one of us drink water/herbal tea/ soup after every 30 minutes to keep mountain sickness at bay. Each day of my trip from concept to reality was handled with utmost attention, personal caring touch right down to the minutest detail. I am smitten; can't wait to plan another adventure with Jugni- Rohit and Nitesh. Thank you, thank you so much! Jugni and highly recommend this to all the women Traveler “JUGNIES”.
“Who wants to go to their grave without fulfilling their dreams?“ Not me at least! This Feb I got to live a part of my dream when I got in touch with my college friends Nitesh and Rohit, the "Jugnus" of JUGNI( that’s what I like to call them;)<br> I had thought that in these 10 days that I travel with Jugni, I will meet new people, explore Sikkim and just have fun. But on the other hand, I just happened to explore my own self. What a life transforming experience it was! When you are with Jugni, you are at home. Not once did I feel that I was on a trekking trip with strangers, I laughed my heart out, enjoyed without any inhibitions, made life-long friends and came out a newer person. If I had to define JUGNI in a line, this is how it would be: “Perfect Escape that you shouldn’t escape!!”
I had never understood the adage “Not having a companion doesn’t stop the process of living” but I do now. With two happy and successful trips with JUGNI I have realized that there are no foreign lands - It is the traveler only who is foreignMy camaraderie with the two strong JUGNI pillars Nitesh and Rohit doesn’t go too long but it seems like a lifetime. I approached JUGNI just like any other girl with a random travel plan in mind and can’t believe it got executed so beautifully - you too have truly been my Co-Pilot, Co-Conspirator, and CollaboratorI must say that with you two I practiced the Art of Travel – from the time I saw someone waiting for me at the airport with a placard saying “JUGNI” to the time I reached back the airport after 11 days I loved every bit of my tripTo the random jokes I cracked with you Nitesh – to the cheese momos – to the chicken lolly pop which was not so lolly pop – to you getting bugged with my SO much shopping – to the trek to the morning walk location – to the almost 500 stairs we climbed (yeah they seemed so) – to the bike rides in the mountains – to the Babloo jokes which started and ended my day – to the Khan Chacha Adda – to the future JUGNI trip plans – to the forest trek which scared the shit out of you J - to the snow sudden flurries - to the stroll at MG Marg – to the songs we sung – to the monasteries we visited – to the amazing friends I made there - and not to forget the Nepali language we learnt and practiced – I have had the greatest experience of my life so farJugni represents me and I represent Jugni – in all absolute sense. Thank you for such a wonderful experience J I will take this to my grave!
Sometimes in life u are in a state of complete burnout both ur professional and personal life seem to be falling apart and u r at a stage of breaking down.. Well I was almost at the edge.. Then is when 'Jugni' happened.. And it was not just a trip with some random service providers.. It was a life savior! In the breathtaking mountains, reverbating chanting of 'Om Mani Padme Hum', fluttering prayer flags in cool breeze, enchanting monasteries and company of Nitesh and Khattar who made me laugh everytime I thought I couldn't even smile.. In the midst of all this I rejuvenated myself..<br> Best of all, never had I dreamt that on my birthday I'd be playing with snow balls, my feet buried two feet in snow!.. It was a mesmerizing sight and my best bday gift ever.. Thanks again Rohit and Nitesh for planning that on my bday.. U people are darlings!<br> Jugni has a long long way to go, everytime u plan a trip please reserve a spot for me.. Because now once a Jugni.. I am Jugni for life! <3 <3
Being a Delhi girl,one of the most difficult part of all my travel plans has always been convincing my family. Jugni fortunately is the answer to all my prayers. I don't have to seek permission anymore and the company of like minded people is always ensured,when on a trek/trip with Jugni. I have done camping with Jugni earlier and have also enrolled for the upcoming Chadar Trek. I can't really say what is the best part about the Jugni team but I guess it's their Spirit :)) Their Passion for Travel is surely Contagious and I will always come back for more memorable trips. Cheers to Jugni and solo women Travelers.
Travelling is one of my passion and I have always wanted to go around and explore the beauty of culturally rich places but despite of being in 21st century a girl still has to face inhibitions before going around on her own. So was I. Thanks to Jugni I have been able to fulfill my dream. The trip to religiously divine and beautiful city of Varanasi could not have been that memorable experience if it was not Jugni. Every arrangement was taken care of whether it was from picking up from station to staying. Exploring Varanasi was way more than special as Nitesh continuously assisted us with details and his humour did not made us feel the hectic and tiredness of the trip. His wit and street smartness does help you feel comfortable even in the unfamiliar surroundings. The visit of Dashashwamegh ghat and Ganga aarti was way too beautiful than expected. Kashi vishwanath temple appeared more glorious and magnificent. <br>Thanks to Jugni I was able to enjoy and have fun despite of being on my own. It was a wonderful experience and I am just waiting to plan another one soon. With Jugni I am confident that travelling is fun with safety. Once again thanks to Nitesh and Rohit. <br> Jugni rockkks...!!!
Just wanted to say a quick thanks to jugni and appreciate your young team for the excellent service you provided. This adventurous hike has been my favorite travel experience by far. I can’t recall the last time i had felt like this independent 21st century women before taking this trip. Also since safety is always a big concern for me, this exclusive all girl trip offer of jugni gave me a convincing vibe and I’m glad to add that my gut feeling very well paid off. I am and was very much pleased with the security arrangements the jugni people did. Also I was really happy with the way you guys took care of all my meal preferences. Your service is greatly appreciated. Moreover, I didn't face any troubles through the booking and other formalities. Another funfact about jugni is the energy level you guys have. The stories and jokes shared in this journey lifted the spirit of our tourist batch even when we tired after hours of exploring and hiking. It was undeniably a perfect experience traveling through jugni. I’m surely going to suggest my female friends at least one jugni trip in a lifetime. The experience and the trip in all was fantastic in every which way!! Looking forward to another adventure, I’m afraid I don’t get addicted to it!
I am an avid traveler and I came to know about Jugni through an equally keen traveler friend of mine. A unique concept for women travelers like me, it is a true blessing. My experience with Jugni has been incredible. Not only is it a fun way to travel, it also keeps my parents at peace as they know I am safe. I would recommend this to every woman who loves to travel and wants to explore India and beyond. Jugni’s management is very helpful and understanding. They also had tremendous knowledge about the rich culture and history of Varanasi (Varanasi was my first trip with Jugni). They took me to the right places to shop, eat and most importantly, explore the beauty and serenity within the chaos of Banaras. I can’t wait to plan my next trip with them.
