Over the weekend, our video about the Chhattisgarh Jungle Trek hit two million views on Instagram! It's the first time we're seeing such traction, especially for a non Himalayan trek.

And understandably so.

In this video, Indiahikes members talk about the unique 5 km river walk through the jungles of Chhattisgarh.

The Chhattisgarh Jungle Trek is unlike any other trek. The setting is such that you are constantly transported to the mysterious world of Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book.

Such treks break the stereotype that brilliant multi-day treks can be found only in the Himalayas. Our country is peppered with so many such trails. Most of which are still undiscovered. The insane stats of this video brings a spotlight on the need for more such treks.
