Former Office - A Little Photo History
The original office of Ashmita Trek & Tours was located on Zakir Hussain Road, a lane that originated from the Chowrasta (Mall), and required 3-4 minute walk past the horse stable. Subash has grown his business over time with sheer quality and hard work. The result is his new office on Nehru road which is considered the most premier location in Darjeeling.
