DO-IT-YOURSELF TREKS

A collection of 180+ Trek Guides. Everything you'll ever need to attempt these treks on your own!

Indiahikes’ vision for DIY treks

Indiahikes started in 2009 as a trek documentation organization. We explored and documented treks. We did this in great detail so that everyone could organize their own treks. 

Our philosophy is to make trek information accessible to anyone who wants to trek. We want trekkers to be able to trek on their own, which is why we strive to share information that is credible and up-to-date.

Today, Indiahikes’ website is the largest database of curated trek information in India.
Thousands of trekkers use this information to go trekking on their own.

You will find more than 180 treks from across the country documented in great detail in the DIY section. So go ahead and use our extensive library of trek guides to plan your next trek!

Help us update Do-It-Yourself trek guides

We need your help to keep these trek guides accurate, relevant and up to date!

We have documented over 180 treks from all over the country. This is the largest database of in-depth trek information in India.

However, we believe that there are hundreds of treks that are yet to be documented in great detail.

Trails, by their nature, are dynamic and with the constant improvement in last mile connectivity, it’s becoming easier to reach them with each passing day. Therefore, the existing documentations need to be constantly updated too.

And this is where you come into the picture.

We need your help to upgrade this database and help the trekking community at large. Click on the button below and fill in all the details that you wish to share. Our documentation team will incorporate the required information in the trek guide.

All the information shared by you will be used with due credits in the trek guides.

Safety Safety on Do-It-Yourself treks

At Indiahikes, we give utmost importance to safety on trails. We are the safest trekking organisation in India.
And we’d like you to follow the safety guidelines even when you are trekking on your own:

  • Do your research before the trek — choose a trek according to the time at hand, your skill & endurance. 
  • Always carry a map of the region or the trail. 
  • Always stay on the established trail. If you are unsure, stop and wait for help to arrive.
  • Carry and drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration. 
  • Always carry a headlamp and whistle with you. Three blasts of a whistle is the universal signal for help.
  • Always carry a mini first aid kit with you.
  • Wear proper attire for a trek. Sturdy footwear with good traction is also a must in the outdoors.
  • When trekking in a group, each member of the group should carry some water and food. Designate meeting points near the trek, in case the group gets separated.
