Everyone Must Trek

Because Trekking Transforms Lives

Trekking transforms lives. It has changed my life totally. When I see my colleagues at Indiahikes, all of them have been impacted greatly. The transformations have been profound and irreversible. 

I see it in our trekkers too. I have seen them change professions, careers or start a new life. I have seen them get in and out of relationships, start new projects. These are life-changing experiences. 

I have seen children building resilience. I have seen families come together. When I see those above 55, I see them rediscover passion and a sense of purpose. These are not small gains.

In the mountains new professions, new economies and new businesses have opened up. Our staff no longer go to cities to earn their living. Their income has increased. Above all, they are happiest working in this world. Trekking has been truly transformative.  

Everyone must absolutely trek. It transforms lives far more than you imagine.

Indiahikes July 2022 Photo Contest

Indiahikes August 2022 Photo Contest - Open To All

We are back with the August edition of the Indiahikes Photo Contest, which is open to all. You're welcome to participate no matter which part of the country you are in. You're welcome to share pictures from your Indiahikes treks or treks you have done on your own.

The theme for this month's open photo contest is Contrast

When we think of striking contrasts, our mind immediately goes to photographs where the photographer has played with textures, highlights, shadows, colors, clarity.

A strikingly colourful sunset or a stark silhouette against a snow-clad mountain. It could be a macro shot of a soft flower against a thorny bush. It could be a terrific play of light and shade.

The last date for entries is 25th August, 2022.

Frequenty Asked Questions

September is one of those rare months when all the high adventure treks open up. These are treks climbing above 13,000 ft, which have a small window of just 3-4 months in a year when they are accessible. Among these, the best treks to do are:

It’s wonderful that you’re planning to start trekking in the Himalayas. You’d be happy to know that around 70% of our trekkers are beginners and always get hooked to trekking after their first trek!

Having said that, you must choose your trek wisely — something that is not too difficult, yet will allow you to experience the grand settings of the Himalayas.

From a decade of experience, these are the treks we find best suited for beginners:

Even though these treks are considered good for beginners, they need at least 30-45 days of preparation on your part. Ensure you go for the trek only after physically preparing for it.

Yes, we do have a “Repeat my trek” policy, and trekkers love it. This is because there are some thoughts and ideologies that we hold close to our hearts.

1. As trekkers, there are times when we have to let go of a trek midway. Sometimes we fall ill or get hit by AMS or at times simply fatigue pulls us down. At other times bad weather plays spoilsport, or the trail is blocked. Your Trek Leader may send you down due to a safety or health issue.

At Indiahikes we feel terrible when such an event happens.

Should such a situation occur that you have to drop out from this trek, we want you to know that we feel as bad as you do. You can always come back another time and finish your adventure. For this, you do not have to pay Indiahikes any money.

2. On the other hand, there are times when you fall in love with a trek. So much so that you want to do it again, perhaps see it in another season. If you ever desire to do a trek again, please do so. You don’t have to pay Indiahikes any money for repeating this trek. Just inform your Experience Coordinator who will guide you through a special internal process. 

Our only request: Just register for your trek in advance – you know how it is with our groups – they get booked in advance.

Note: The Indiahikes “Repeat My Trek” policy does not apply to our international treks.

This is something many trekkers ask us. If you’re interested in working with us, take a look at our careers page. Given that our organisation is growing, we have lots of new roles opening up regularly.

We are always looking for team players, who understand the trekking world and fit into the working culture of Indiahikes. More than skills and experience, we pay attention to your behaviour and values.

Getting in and starting work here isn’t easy. There are several levels of interviews and tests. But once you get through, it is one of the most rewarding and meaningful journeys in your career.

Definitely! At Indiahikes, we believe renting is the way forward, to make trekking more efficient, and more economical, without compromising the quality of trekking gear. So we have a range of high-quality gear available for rent at very small costs. 

Take a look at them here – https://store.indiahikes.com/

Your rental gear will be given to you at the base camp on the day you arrive.

In case you have rented a trekking backpack, you may use the cloakroom facility to keep your extra luggage. We want you to travel as light as possible from your home. 

Renting of items close 3 days before the start of the trek.

Yes, absolutely. Many solo trekkers join our teams and have wonderful experiences. They end up meeting like-minded people on the trek and don't feel like they have come along on the trek anymore.

Our pre-trek experienced team ensures that you know your entire team well much before you actually head out on the trek.

Additionally, we have several women trekkers who join us solo as well because of the safety they get with the Indiahikes team. You're welcome to join us as a solo trekker too.

New Experiences With Indiahikes

Having organised treks for the past decade, we have come to realise that there are certain specialties in trekking.
