When Can We Trek Again? An Interesting Perspective From The Founder Of Indiahikes

Of late, we’ve been seeing several instances of tourism looking to inch back to life. Uttarakhand, Himachal and Jammu and Kashmir have opened their borders to trekking. The Indian Mountaineering Foundation recently laid out an advisory about trekking in the Himalayas during COVID times. 

Our trekkers too are constantly asking us about when we can start trekking. There is a lot of pressure on us to restart trekking.

Here, we interview the founder of Indiahikes, Arjun Majumdar, to see what he has to say on this topic.

Surprisingly, he brings in a completely new perspective. And trekkers who have watched the interview so far, have been extremely appreciative of seeing things in a new light in this situation. 

We are curious to know your thoughts on this topic as well. Can you share your thoughts after watching the video in the comments box below? We look forward to reading them.
