At Indiahikes, we believe that trekking should be an easily accessible sport. But over the past decade, we have observed how our trekkers find this sport to be extremely heavy on their pockets.
Even if we bring down our trek fee, they still have to spend on travel and trek gear. And trekking gear is in no way easy to get. It’s expensive, and it’s usually an investment for just one or two treks, which trekkers find unnecessary. Often, they end up coming on treks with insufficient gear.
Our founder, Arjun Majumdar feels deeply about the culture of buying expensive trek gear when you can quite well make do with more economical options. “We want to make trekking as affordable as possible. I don’t see any reason for trekkers to buy expensive shoes if they are only going to trek once a year.” In fact, most trekkers don’t plan on doing more than one Himalayan trek in their lifetime.
That’s why we have begun to rent trekking gear. These are of good quality and they are easy on your pocket.
