  1. Hello Sneha,
    Thank you for mail. I am also from Blore. Does Indiahikes organise trek in Dudhsagar as also Gokarna. Please let me know. Rajeev

    1. Hi Rajeev,
      Indiahikes does not organise the Dudhsagar trek. We only organise treks in the Himalayas as of now.

  2. Hi Sneha
    Sorry if you might find it silly but do we get any acknowledgement that you have received an entry from us? I mean how can we be sure that you have received all files ?
