Can You Help Us With A Local Trek In Your City?

Today, I need your help with a recommendation.

I want to know of a one-day trek near your city that I can suggest trekkers to do.

I’ll tell you why.

A couple of weeks ago, the Indiahikes Bangalore team took out our cars and drove up to a group of hills around a dam, just behind Nandi Hills. Unknown to many, Nandi Hills is not just a range of 2-3 hills. The entire region is dotted with small, extremely trekkable hills.

Getting back to my story, we drove up to one such hill, which stands beside a lovely dam. We parked at the base, trekked the surrounding trails, munched on all the food we’d packed from home and spent some quiet time reflecting on the past few months.

It’s not been easy sailing through the pandemic at Indiahikes. Things have only gone downhill since February. But that one small trek filled us with a big sense of rejuvenation. Just 4-5 hours in the outdoors helped us reorganise our minds.

I thought what a wonderful break a trek can be in this Coronavirus lockdown! It can really make you feel uncooped! Added to that, if you’re driving, trekking on your own and coming back, it’s an entirely contact-less sport.

But despite the 270+ treks in our archives, I don’t know of treks in all cities.

Which is why I need your help.

I would like you to tell me which city you are in, and your top most recommended local trek for trekkers in your city.

My only parameter — it should be a  trek where you can easily drive to the base, trek to the top and come back home the same day.

Drop in your recommendation in the comments section below.

Just your city, which trek you would recommend. If you’d like to add why that trek, even better. If you can suggest how to get there, then I think it would make it complete.

Our team will also share a documentation of the trek you have recommended if we have it in our archives.

Lots of trekkers are itching to go outdoors and are looking for suggestions. Your experience in your own city will really help.

I hope to see your comment. Looking forward to your recommendation!

If you have arrived here hoping for some trek recommendations:

  • I would suggest doing a Ctrf+F and searching for your city. There are SO many terrific recommendations pouring in from trekkers.
  • Our team is also sharing Indiahikes Do-It-Yourself (DIY) guides in the comments. Follow those links to understand how you can do the trek on your own and get some wonderful info about the treks.
