Our Special Women’s Trek Team reached the Kedarkantha summit today!

The occasion of International Women’s Day just became extremely special for all of us as we got the news of all women successfully reaching the summit of the Kedarkantha trek.

Here's an audio note from Trek Leader Urja Joshi who led the trek

Trek Leader Urja Joshi says:

We also had two local women guide joining us for this trek. :)

Here’s what our founder & CEO Arjun Majumdar had to say on this occasion.

“For me, Women's Day is not just a day to celebrate the achievements of women, but also an opportunity to reflect on the progress we have made and the work that still needs to be done. It is a reminder that we all have a role to play in creating a more inclusive and equitable society, both within our team and beyond.

I want to encourage each and every one of you to take some time to reflect on what Women's Day means to you and how you can contribute to advancing gender equality. Whether it's through education, advocacy, or simply being mindful of our own biases and assumptions, we all have the power to make a difference.”

Team Indiahikes wishes all the Women Trekker’s a very happy Women’s Day!
