Right after the Outdoor Leadership Program, 18 seniors started their trek to Dayara Bugyal. And news just came in that yesterday (on April 8) they successfully summited on the trek! 

For several years at Indiahikes, we have wanted to open special treks for Seniors. We have wanted our own parents to go on treks.

"When I see a senior trek I see them going home with a sense of rejuvenation much beyond what a younger person experiences. The entire experience makes them add on more years to their life — at least 4-5 years more. They go home more joyous and with a strong sense of accomplishment.

"They discover they have more strength than they thought; that they are capable of a lot more than they imagined. They find more purpose in their life," says Arjun Moundar, Founder-CEO, Indiahikes.
