Category Blog Contest Trekker Space

By Seersha Nambiar


August 2016 was all about Kashmir Great Lakes and Hampta Pass. Cancelled batches, shifted batches and batches that actually went on amidst all the chaos. Despite all the chaos, our trekkers managed to find peace on these two treks. They have penned their experiences down beautifully and won the August 2016 Blog Contest.


My Memories From Kashmir Great Lakes Trek by Anusha Patil 

“‘All Good things come to an End’. Amidst all these chaos and unrest, I was able to experience the best of Kashmir and Kashmiris. It was a memorable trek I had and my blog will not be complete if I do not thank Indiahikes and their brilliant team. To be honest, the only reason for us deciding to do this trek amidst the unrest in Kashmir are Indiahikes team.”

Trekking to Hampta Pass by Pratap J 

After a while, we started walking beside a raging river, which had swelled due to the constant showers. It took us more than 7 hours to reach the first camp site. Our tents were laid out on a lush green meadow. There were waterfalls all around us. It was like being in paradise.


Congratulations Anusha and Pratap! Keep trekking and writing. We loved all the entries and will share them on our website soon!
