The number of trekkers wanting to trek DIY-style has significantly increased. This is a heartening shift to witness. It shows that awareness about DIY treks is growing.
“Most trekkers learn about the DIY-style on our treks, where they get a chance to cook on their own, pitch tents, and even navigate during the DIY-day of the trek. Learning these skills on a trek gives them the confidence to venture out on a trek on their own,” Suhas says.
We've also made the process less-daunting for trekkers who are unsure about trekking entirely on their own.
“You needn’t do the DIY trek all on your own. You can now opt for a local guide to come along. I feel this option is giving more trekkers the confidence to trek DIY-style,” Suhas adds.
Most DIY trekkers are choosing popular trails--Kuari Pass, Kedarkantha, Gaumukh-Tapovan, and Phulara Ridge--which have a strong Indiahikes presence on them.
