Trainings at Indiahikes have gained momentum. Last weekend, our team conducted a Green Trails training session at Karchhi village, which is the base for the Valley of Flowers and Kuari Pass treks.

This training was designed for our cooks and helpers. They play a key role in ensuring our trekkers get the right nutrition on treks. The aim of this training was to help them work on their core role while being effectively sustainable.

“The training covered why being sustainable in the mountains is important. It also covered how to communicate the impact of sustainability with our trekkers,” shares Shwetha Krish, Trek Leader at Indiahikes

As the sessions progressed, the training became a platform for deeper discussions. In these discussions, our staff shared concerns about waste management at certain campsites. And the team came together to chalk out steps to address it in the coming season.

We even conducted a quiz on segregation and composting.

“It was a fun session with them (our staff) racking their brains for answers. But it helped them understand segregation in a fun way,” Shwetha shares.

We’re eager to see the impact of these trainings on treks in the upcoming autumn season. We will keep posting more news on trainings at Indiahikes right here.
