I have just finished reading the last letter you wrote to me. There you asked me to inform you if I ever plan any trip to any hill station. This is my letter to you to let you know about my upcoming trip.
In the upcoming summer vacation, I am planning a trip to North Bengal this year. On this trip, I am planning a trekking expedition to Sandakphu: the highest point of Bengal with one of our local clubs. We will initially start from Sealdah on June 21st. After reaching NGP we will go to Darjeeling. From there we have planned to join the Himalayan Mountaineering club and begin our expedition to Sandakphu. It’s a 13 day-long trip. After finishing the trekking expedition, we will be back in Darjeeling, and after spending a day there, we’ve planned to get back home.
So, if you are interested in joining us, please let me know as soon as possible.

I remember, the last time we met you told me that you’re interested in trekking expeditions. Today, I am writing to you to let you know that I am joining a trekking expedition training centre in Behala and you can also join it if you want.
Since our last meeting, I have been continuously thinking about trekking. I have even read a few books on trekking expeditions to mountains. Those travel stories attracted me heavily. But unfortunately, I don’t have any first-hand experience of trekking and don’t have any institutional training either. I heard that it’s too dangerous to go trekking without proper training. That’s why I decided to join this institution to have the proper training for expeditions.
So, as you told me that you’re quite interested in trekking, I would like to request you join me at this institution. Renowned climber Dr Bivash Bhonsle will be training us here. So, if you are interested, please let me know soon in your next letter.
Your loving friend

It has been many days since I haven’t received a letter from you. How are you? I am writing this letter to invite you to join us in the upcoming trekking expedition we are planning.
In the coming Holi vacation, we are planning a trekking expedition to the Ayodhya hills of Purulia. A beautiful local festival named Rangan is celebrated at the hilltop of Ayodhya every year. We are interested in attending this festival. To attend this festival we have to climb the Ayodhya hill and reach its top.
In this two days festival, the local tribal community celebrates the joy of being with nature. They sing, they dance and many other kinds of tribal rituals are performed. I, along with my family, are planning to go there. Will you be interested to join us with your family? It is going to be my first time trekking experience. It will be great if you will be with us on this trip.
Please let me know through your next letter. I will wait for your response.
Best wishes and regards,

It’s been a long time since I didn’t hear from you. How are you doing? I am writing you this letter to ask you to join us on a trekking expedition we are planning to Kedarnath.
Hopefully, you remember that we have planned this trip since last year. I have already talked with my parents. They have given me permission for this expedition. Our other friends have also contacted me. We are thinking of starting on the very first day of the coming Puja vacation.
We will first reach Rishikesh and then from there, we will begin for Kedarnath. Please, dear friend, don’t hesitate anymore. It’s not a risky trek route at all. We just have to walk for a long, nothing else. With trekking expeditions, we get new opportunities to explore the world, to know more people and most importantly our minds get a fresh start. So, don’t step back now.
Please let me know when you’re coming to our house for detailed planning. I will be waiting for your next letter.
Your best friend,
That was all about our presentation on writing informal letters to the friends requesting him to join you on the trekking expedition. In this session, I have tried to present a holistic idea about the topic through four different examples. I hope all your doubts have been resolved after going through this session and you will be able to write such letters on your own. If you still have any doubts, let me know that through the comment section below.
I will attend to your query as soon as possible. Moreover, if you want me to cover any specific topic, mention that too. Let us know your opinion about this initiative through some quick comments. If you want to go through more such sessions, take a tour of our website.
