“This being my 1st Himalayan trek and that too associated with India hikes, I was really excited. Positive points were the breath taking sceneries that we were trekking through and I being a photography enthusiast, it was literally like a paradise!! The food was exceptionally good and I didn’t expect such organised and delicious food and snacks which even i don’t have in my daily routine.I felt it was amazing that even in such remote mountain areas, India hikes were able to provide such good food to the trekkers, which is very essential for trekking The support staff were really good, especially Khushi Bhayya and Ajay bhayya. The way Khushi was supporting from the top of chandrashila summit, that gave me more push and I literally ran towards the summit so that I wouldn’t miss the amazing sun rise that I got to view!!!” – Adithya, batch of September 2017 

“I am glad to take this opportunity to get a chance to provide the feedback for the Chandrashila Deorital Trek. The trek with Indiahikes didnt start from 30th Sep, it actually started the day when I registered for it. The whole experience from that day to the base camp to the summit day till the day when we are supposed to go back to our homes, Indiahikes has always been a part of it and have taken the perfect care of us. Not only the front end people but the back office people have supported us for making this trek a wonderful memorable experience.

Starting with Varun who had always been connected to us through the mailers which made us prepared for the trek and who was always there to solve our queries. Thanks Varun for replying our silly questions also which gave me a great satisfaction for trekking alone. Finally after some months of registering, the day had come when we were ready to start the trek i.e. 30th September (One of my best day of my life).

Meeting everyone (all the registered ones as well as the Trek leaders and staff) at Sari really made me feel at home. The experience of trekking and camping is unexplainable. All thanks to all the members of indiahikes which made it possible for us. Thanks to the food department for making us feel at home with their delicious amazing food and service. They treated us like our mother who always want to feed their child on time.

Also thanks to the staff for porter service, water service (wish we could have helped them). Shivam Pandey (Our Awesome Trek Leader) has been the perfect trek leader that we would have dreamt of. He is the one who made our trek the most energetic and filled with enthusiasm. Thanks Shivam for all the support for making all of us reach the summit. Your words and support encouraged us to complete the summit. Smooth Shivam, you are the best.

Will miss doing the leg dance with you. God always bless this guy. You are an inspiration for the youth. And yes thanks Shivam for the Balaclava which always helped me to cover my ears (hahahah). Also thanks to Khushi bhaiya and Ajay bhaiya who always supported us in every way. Without these two it was not possible for all the 26 to complete the summit. They were the ones who were always in front and behind of us to take care of us. I have found such great friends that i feel i was with my second home.

Trust me being here for 6 days, i did not had the time to miss my parents and friends. All thanks to Indiahikes for making such beautiful amazing friends and memories for me. The Green Trails association has made us realised our responsibility towards making our mountains our country a beautiful place to be lived in. This awareness initiative has been an amazing part of Indiahikes. When i am writing this feedback i am on my flight back to Bombay, i have tears in my eyes. I am really gonna miss this all. A big big thanks to all associated with Indiahikes (Varun, Shivam, Khushi Bhaiya, Ajay Bhaiya, Food Department, Back office) Planning soon for the next trek with Indiahikes.”

“The trek went smooth in the spirit of Green Trails and the group we were together with was the best part. The trek leader Shivam ensured that the trekkers health is upto mark and is being checked periodically. The food was awesome. The only negative was the log stretch of 16 kms from Deorital to Chopta in a single day gets tough for people specially when they are coming for the first time as a trekker.”

“As this is our first trek, I don’t have much to compare it. But it was quite an experience to cherish for a long time. People came for the trek were very kind and supportive. Some people always kept the dialogue in english so that we can be in it. We were very thankful to India hikes and their supportive staffs who worked early mornings to put the bread on our table. We get to eat a lot of north Indian dishes such as Potato custard sweet, mango custard etc…There is food present for us throughout in similar intervals. Tents are good and clean. Dry toilets are very acceptable, even though we were promised that we will get a wet toilet in Chopta (we were surprised). We stayed at our comforts and could spend a lot of time with the nature alone. We shared eatables, played cards and had a nice walk along floodplains. What else can be expected out of Himalayan trek.”- Raamashaamy C, batch of September 2017

“It was my 1st Trek with IH. I really enjoyed the entire trek and would appreciate the effort of Mr.Ankur Pathak as Team Leader he had proved to be a best TL as he motivated me, generated confidence in me that nothing is difficult it could be done and was able to push myself to achieve the goal of chandrashila summit. The Food was awesome and the team all supported us ,even the coordinators who were with us walking with us supported well in our trek. This type of team would always make our moments memorable.” – Vinod Namboodri, batch of October 2017

“Right from the start, I had great experience about the Trek. Briefing on the previous day by the Trek Leader, the fun, care-takers, food and the Group…all were very good. Special mention about the Trek Leader Shivam who was inspirational and Great guy to go on a Trek with. Not to forget the wonderful support Team. All in all….Great !”
