Small steps adventure is not only a group but is more like a family...after each and every trek you keep on adding wonderful and unforgettable memories to your life bucket...This Pandavas (Yogi,Ravi, Sushant, Sagar, Prashant) take care of each and everything in such a way as they all are your family members... Each one has their own qualities that's makes each trek More memorable. I have completed more than 10 treks with SSA and captured lots of good memories with me. Found lots of good fun-loving friends. The support, motivation, guidance, food, arrangements these people provide to everyone are the remarkable and worth experience. From the easiest to toughest trek SSA always says "you can do it..we can help". You can use so many phrases to describe SSA.. Connecting people, SSA ke sath trek gaya...to life zinga lala.. Distance is measured with SSA..Not in miles.. Product with zero defect. Once you go with SSA..its become a habit... And many more.. Everyone can say after trekking with SSA it's my SSA family and us proud to be a part of this. At the end only can say we love you small steps..
