“I LOOOVVVEED THIS TREK! Starting from the emails (we started receiving over a month before the trek) regarding the importance and necessity of the level of fitness we should attain by the start of the trek to the constantly buzzing kitchen tent at each base camp that never failed to impress us 5 times each day, I think Indiahikes took care of every possible domain there is to make a trekking trip truly a memorable one!

 

I think being organized and knowing exactly what they are doing is what makes these guys amazing! Our trek was led by Gurdit Singh, assisted by Nikhil. Each day’s trek didn’t just begin on the morning of the trek. It began the previous evening at 5:30 in the dinner tent, when we were explained the itinerary for the following day, the kind of terrain we’ll be hiking, the weather forecast for the next day and how important it is to be back by so and so time to avoid the rain. Everyday we were accompanied by Gurdit paaji, Nikhil, Ravi and Chaman who made sure, at all times of the hike, somebody was always there with each group of people, climbing at different velocities. They gave special attention to those who were a little slower than the others and anybody who needed help. Each of them made sure that we were safe and had fun, everyone passing second!

 

As a doctor, I was really amused at how regularly our oxygen saturation levels and blood pressure levels were monitored throughout the trek! Our trek leaders knew what to expect and how to give first aid whenever a health issue arose. On each day’s trek, whether we came back to the same base camp or not, Nikhil always had an oxygen cylinder. The level of preparedness was truly commendable! Lastly, I’d like to mention how Swati’s videos and the basic check lists on the website are simply THE BEST! We used everything we brought along with us. Not because we bought it anyways but because each of those are actually needed! Running into other trek groups on each of our trails, made us realize how well prepared we were in comparison to them. How much lesser we fell and how much easier we climbed because of how well equipped each of us were!” – Siona Sabu, batch of June 2017

“Trek went great because of an extremely knowledgeable team we had at indiahikes. The ground staff were literally awesome! the TL & ATL were a bundle of knowledge and inspiration. Guides were leading us from front making sure nobody gets left behind. Kitchen staff did a fantastic job feeding us delicious breafkast/lunch and dinner. Sweet during dinner was a real highlight :)” – Srihari Narayana Murthy, batch of June 2017 

“It went amazing. This was my first high-altitude trek, so I had a lot of anxiety over the difficulty, weather conditions as well as the the whole group dynamics. But from the very first day, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I have no words to express the beauty of the mountains and valleys we covered during the 8 days.”

“The trek was absolutely fabulous. Every think was very organised and professional. Being my first trek, it was a great experience on a high altitude. Much recommended to people who want to start trekking to unexplored places! The team spirit building that India Hikes makes conscious efforts upon is a delight, and helps in nurturing a lasting bond and camaraderie with fellow trekkers.

I know it is difficult, but perhaps the conditions of the dry toilets could be worked upon, especially with lot of flies buzzing around the pit. Also, the prior mails could be better arranged, so as to prevent clutter and information overload, without compromising on giving out the necessary details.” – Abhishek Gupta, batch of June 2017 

“In fact I never planned a long trek but my niece Radhika insisted me to accompany her.It was difficult for me to get accustomed to new life style on the very first day of the trek. I was little bit satisfied with when our trek leader Mr Geet interacted with the group. As we moved on the trek,every one of us was familiar with each other because of Mr Geet who made us to play such games in which all members were involved. Support staff Manoj and Ravi were always available to support the group It was a great experience for me to trek with a wonderful group and a caring team of Indiahikes. Would definitely like to trek with Indiahikes especially with Geet and Manoj”
