Become a Trek Leader with Indiahikes
Our Indiahikes Trek Leaders are engaged in an intense 4-day learning session with seasoned naturalists from National Conservation Foundation (NCF) at our Sari Campus in Uttarakhand.
The thought behind it is simple—to enable our trek leaders to appreciate the depth of biodiversity on treks.
“It will make the Indiahikes Experience richer. These skills that Trek Leaders are building will help them unravel the mysteries of nature surrounding us on the trek. And sharing these stories with our trekkers will in turn help trekkers appreciate the depth of biodiversity present on the treks,” says Lakshmi Selvakumaran, Head of Learning and Development at Indiahikes.
To take it forward, Harsh J and Payal Mehta, who have led many nature field trips in India, Mexico, Brazil, in Himalayan regions of Bhutan and Nepal, are spearheading these learning sessions on behalf of NCF.
“It’s fascinating to see how the learning sessions are unfolding. We’re blown away by how interconnected the elements of nature are! We’re realising how much life is packed into a tiny patch of forest. It is opening our eyes to a holistic way of looking at the ecosystem in which we are trekking,” shares Experience Manager Shachi Tripathi, who is part of the learning sessions.
We’ve always believed that trekking is much more than moving from Point A to Point B. It’s a way of connecting deeply with nature. And these learning sessions are a journey in that direction.
