Do I have to pay for the transport/ cab separately?

For most treks, you have to pay for the transport separately to the driver.

The transport fee is not part of the Indiahikes trek fee.

The transport is organised by an external coordinator, whom we have worked with for years.

The price for these vehicles is negotiated and set by us before the start of the trek.

The amount is shared equally by all the trekkers. We share the amount to be paid in the email that we send 5 days before your trek.

However, there are a few treks where the transport amount is included in the trek fee. You will not have to pay for the transport from the pick-up location.

Here is a list of such treks

  • Nag Tibba
  • Prashar Lake
  • Bhrigu lake
  • Kheerganga Buni Buni Pass
  • Hampta pass (only the upward journey to Jobra. You will have to pay for the return to Manali)
