Wow nice video Hazleen
Glad u took it i did not realized how scary it was i was only focusing on getting up and how the hell are we going to get down. It was the most challenging hike I ever done.
By the way sorry for the late reply.
Than you So much for letting me be part of your group. A memorable and good trip with nice all rounded women
It was good to get to know you all.
Hazleen you and your team went above and beyond to ensure our safety, have all of our needs and have a good time. Keep up the good work I hope to go for another hike with you provided it is an easy ones😄😄
Quote taken from Slyvain Leroy book, on the slopes of Javenese volcanoes,
"Grains of sand make up the mountain, moment make up a year, and happennings make up a life."
So, a few women climbing one mountain, inspired women every where to realize their potential.
Good luck, keep up the good work Hazleen and all the best to all of u ladies. Be safe😘😘😘

Message From Buyana Davaa (ATC Member Based In Mongolia) - 4th September 2017

Ladies in ATC amazing 😉!!  Always encouraging and motivating!  Super ladies!

 

Message From Brit-Elin (ATC Member Based In Norway)

I am a Norwegian woman that will turn 54 in less than two weeks. At 33 I got a whip lash injury. In my fourtees I was diagnozed with fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis, and the last addition to the "collection" is asthma.

I HAVE to hike to function and not detoriate too fast. Walking on an uneven surface surface keeps my joints more flexible and less painful. Physically it's a balance on a tight rope between too little and too much activity, but pushing it can be very rewarding in other ways. Being outdoors hiking is always empowering, encouraging and soothing for heart and mind.

I have a very strong connection to nature. As a child I hiked in the mountains and felt that I could dissolve into small particles and be blown away in the wind - true mindfullness and a deep, strong feeling of freedom and belonging.  This kind of well-being is the best kind of painkiller to me, and sharing moments like this with others is like a gentle gift from Mother Nature.

Hope everything went well, I could have written pages.. I am sure we will meet again, either here or in Asia. Keep up the good work, you make such a big difference in so many lives...

Letter Of Thanks - 4th June 2017

Hazleen, don't make me cry... 😑 Don't know how to say goodbye properly. It's very difficult to leave the group I enjoy. Will always bring this unforgettable memories with ATC. I was so lucky to be part of this group in Singapore. Amazing women and mother of kids. Always get negative feedback in my society about trekking and loving the mountains as a middle aged woman. Love you ATC and those amazing women. Hope to trek with you again. Mt. Rinjani is still in my bucket list and may join with ATC again for that trek. 💗💕

Thanks Hazleen!  Thanks so much for the guidance, training and support.

Hugs Hugs.  It's been possible because of you gals.

3D2N Bali (Mount Batur & Mount Agung Treks)  - 7th to 9th May 2017

Powerful!

It's all good.  Nice to mix and match - mentally and physically.  The event was tough but also awesome.  I think too little sleep and recovery can cloud your judgement and put the best in a bad starting position.  Follow your heart, it knows the way!  Hmmm I need to follow my own advice!! X

Kirsty Smith

 

Hazleen hi

I wanted to thank you for a memorable few days in Bali last week.  Whilst I did not complete the treks, I really did enjoy getting away, meeting you and the other girls and experiencing Bali.  You have created quite a monster in ATC, one that will keep you busy and invigorated for time to come I am sure.  And it is awesome that you are so full of energy to do so.  Thank you again.

3D2N Hong Kong Trek (Lantau Peak, Dragon's Back and Twin Peaks Extravaganza) - 29th April to 1st May 2017

The trip honestly changed my outlook on my life especially being a 16 year old girl stressing over exams. puberty, life, weather always doubting myself and thinking of the worst. I didn't think I was capable climbing that mountain, I felt lost and found at the same time. Lost because my entire body was aching and cramping, but found because my mind was at peace as I went higher and higher, genuinely enjoying my time alone in the mountains with the breeze on my face, it really is like a completely different world. I try to apply what I did up there to what I do in my everyday life especially with academics. Not to have a mental block on my mind when I study, to take it as a challenge instead of a chore. I loved going at my own pace and being alone up there was an eye opener that I can do whatever I want if I put my mind to it. Thank you so much ATC for giving me the opportunity ❤

Seri Ahern (Junior ATC Member for HK Trip)

  

That's such a beautiful note, Shah and how brilliant Seri found it such an amazing experience.  Her words ring so true, climbing mountains is a metaphor for life - there are ups, downs, highs and lows and it often hurts, but stick with it and the positives win out.  Your smart daughter twigged into this a good 20+ years before some of us...  ATC seriously rocks.

Liz Weselby (Luxe City Guides Editorial Director & ATC Luxury Travel Expert)

 

Thanks again Elsa and Liz for guiding us on the HK treks and most importantly ATC - Hazleen, Shah and Julia for making this possible and for taking such good care of us.  Pretties, please rest well and see ya soon

3D2N Mount Kinabalu, Sabah Trek - 29th to 31st March 2017

Thank you for your truly inspiring words.  Climbing Mt Kinabalu was an amazing achievement for all of us and we could not have done it without being a team and having trained hard to achieve our goal.  Becca was our inspiring trek leader and she competently dealt with every situation.  The trek was not easy but we gave it everything and we succeeded.  Despite physical exhaustion and pain we had a lot of fun.  I can't wait for my next adventure with ATC.

An experience I will never forget

I'm a member of Amazing Trekkers Club living in Dubai. Our recent trip to Nepal was an experience I will never forget. The team spirit and camaraderie among the girls was incredible! I enjoyed the perfect balance of relaxation and adventure alongside the great company of the ladies. We worked well together as a team to achieve our common goals and enjoyed the beautiful scenery, which Nepal had to offer. The level of the walks is a good level for people of various ages and fitness. Everything was well organised from the flights and accommodations to the hikes and yoga sessions. The yoga and meditation sessions we did before and after trekking helped us to stay focused and well stretched, which made the walks the following day a lot easier. Thanks to our yoga teacher Nurul Huda.....you did a wonderful job! And thank you so much Shah and Rebecca for an amazing trip and making sure everything was taken care of. Looking forward to my next adventure with the Amazing Trekkers Club! A job well done gals.

Letter Of Thanks

Shah, the Clubʼs Vice President, has been my friend for over 30 years and knows me pretty well, especially my love of traveling and adventure. So, when Shah told me about the Clubʼs trip to Machu Picchu I didnʼt hesitate to sign on.

The Amazing Trekkers Club . The Club planned the trip accommodations, activities, meals, everything, I just needed to get a ticket from United States to Cusco, Peru. But, best of all, by going on this trip with the Amazing Trekkers Club I wasnʼt traveling alone. I shared this adventure with a fantastic group of women.

There was a great variety of activities that challenged us physically and mentally. I enjoyed the long days hike into the mountains and when we reached our camp tents were ready, food was waiting to be served, Sleeping outdoors under night sky full of stars was awesome. Local guides talked to us about the culture, the religious sites we visited, and answered our questions. After several days hiking and roughing it in the mountains, Sulastri arranged for us to spend a night in a five star hotel to enjoy a hot bath, cable TV, and good internet access, I will never forget the Via Ferrata and Zip line. I had to climb straight up ac 400 meter rock mountain cliff then zip line down. We live only once so why not do something that is out of our ordinary life and thanks to the Amazing Trekkers club we can do just that.

I want to thank Shah, her colleagues and members of the Amazing Trekkers Club for giving me one of the best experience in my life.
