New Indiahikes campus for Kuari Pass and Pangarchulla treks!


By Sneha Yadav

Last week, was special for us. We finally opened our new campus for the Kuari Pass trekkers!

The team going to the trek in the 9th March batch was the first set of trekkers stepping inside our campus. It was a very emotional moment for our slope team present there. 🙂

Our CEO & founder, Arjun Majumdar shares: "This is very emotional for me, to see the birth of our Kuari campus It's been almost 3 years since we began this hunt for a campus at Kuari Pass. So many of us, especially our ex-slope manager Krupa went up and down over many villages to find our campus. And finally, Manish Ji who’s a senior member at Indiahikes worked his magic and got us this lovely campus. To work here in our own campus, with the Lohajung campus being made, completes our entire Uttarakhand circuit.”

Our slope manager, Nishant (@the_intrepid_bull) who’s been an active part in setting up the campus shares : "The place which we finalized was in a semi-built condition when we found it. We had to build it to the Indiahikes standard level before our trekkers arrived on 9th March. To make this happen, the entire team came together and worked relentlessly. I felt quite overwhelmed to be part of this process because Kuari Pass has been close to my heart since I started my journey with Indiahikes as an Assistant Trek Leader. To finally have a campus of our own is something remarkable.

Trekkers were really happy with the setup and one of them even said this gives me a feeling of Janglik Basecamp of Buran Ghati and I did not even feel that this has been set up a few days ago.

We planted an apple tree on our campus to mark this new beginning of growth. :)”
