In January 2023, Indiahikes got registered as a Trained Activity Provider (TAP) with IAYP. 

At Indiahikes, we believe that trekking nurtures a strong spirit of adventure and connection to nature, especially in children. On the same lines, schools all over our country add the IAYP Award to their curriculum to ensure children benefit from such experiential learning programs. Registering with IAYP enabled schools to access Indiahikes treks for their students through the IAYP Program.

What was really reassuring for me was the realisation that our experiential learning programs for young people on treks ticked off all the requirements and outcomes of the Award's Adventurous Journey.
