Indiahikes First Seniors Trek -- A Huge Success!

Indiahikes First Seniors Trek -- A Huge Success!

Category News Guides To Choose Treks

Our first team of senior trekkers recently came back from the Chhattisgarh Jungle Trek.

While having a trek for a group of seniors was already a special moment for us, our founder
Arjun Majumdar decided to make it even more special by accompanying the whole team on this journey.

Here’s what he had to share “Seniors trekking is a very emotional feeling for me personally. My parents had introduced me to trekking so having a special trek for them is a way of giving it back to the seniors. When I saw seniors on this trek I could see them finding new meaning in their life. The joy they got out of trekking has surely added many more years to their life. This is the reason why I want seniors to trek and I’m so happy that we’ll be having more of these special batches for seniors.”

Along with him, Nandana Kamasani, head of Experience Coordinators team was also a part of this trek.

The trek was led by Ramon Rajan. He came back from the trek in very high spirits. Here’s what he had to say:

“I must say I am a tad disappointed. I thought I would be leading a group of seniors but turned out to be a group of CHILDREN instead!

From the minute they stepped out of the vehicle, frothing with energy, running about and clicking photos like teenagers, laughing like pre-schoolers (they laughed at even MY jokes), playing in the sand, running in the river… perhaps the only time I realised they were Seniors was when I checked their ID prof during safety check-in.

Undoubtedly this was the youngest group of trekkers I have led.

I also feel so privileged to have led our First Seniors Group! Right from the pre-trek briefing, I noticed that they were fans of Indiahikes and really proud that we had organised an exclusive trek for senior citizens.

And the trek was designed specifically for them with some well-thought-out changes in the itinerary which made the experience safe yet Grand for them.”
