“A lifetime experience. Pass day was tough as we experienced continues rainfall that day which lasted for 4 days till reaching Manali. Even rough view of Spiti valley was turned into greenish color due to monsoon. Better to choose this trek in dry weather. Overall experience was good.” – Rajita Chakraborty, batch of June 2017 

“Totally loved every moment of the trek! All the campsites were way beautiful.. Every experience from climbing in snow or crossing ice cold river or eating under the stars or sleeping by the river.. every experience was absolutely worth the wait.. IndiaHikes staff have been wonderful. From Trek leader Aashay and Vineet to guide Tara bhai and other supporting staff like Deepu bhai.. I would like to thank each and every one from the team for making this trek memorable” – Indu Teotia, batch of June 2017 

“I thoroughly enjoyed the trekking experience and thought the entire Indiahikes team right from the cooking staff to the trek leader were absolutely exceptional in managing our batch of 26. Their efforts helped us brave the poor weather conditions and left us with an experience that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

This is my second trek with Indiahikes with Deoriyatal-Chandrashila being the first one and I have had similar fulfilling experiences in both the treks with respect to the way it was managed and conducted. In terms of suggestions, I understood during the trek that the weather difficulties we faced were a common theme this time of the year for this trek and apparently all June batches faced similar headwinds. I think this fact could have been stressed upon further before the trek began to the extent that maybe June isn’t the best time to choose to do Hampta Pass given the challenging weather conditions.

But overall, as I said previously, I would like to thank the entire Indiahikes team for their support, encouragement and guidance in helping all of us have a wonderful experience in the Himalayas.”

“This is my third trek with IndiaHikes and I would like to mention that our trek leader Aashay Surve was really good. I felt that he really loved his job and went out of the way to make our trek pleasant. He kept us entertained in the dining tents even if it was a tiring day for him. Our Assistant trek Leader Vineet was also good.

Another thing that was good in this trek is that everything including transport to Chandrataal was included in the trek fee. Compared to my previous treks with Indiahikes i felt a thing or two could be improved in Hampta Pass trek. Firstly the campsite in Chatru could have been better located. The tents were all cramped up in a small area and the toilet tents were too far probably because it was all rocky in that area.

Secondly I felt we could have kept the crampons throughout the pass crossing . They were collected back after we reached Hampta pass and we had to descend without crampons. They said they were sending it down for the next batch. In Deoriatal trek in winter and in Roopkund we had the crampons throughout the icy patch till we reached campsite. Overall I felt I had a great experience in this trek and I thank IndiaHikes team for making it memorable for me.” – Sudhin Anandampillai, batch of June 2017 

“Absolutely loved my first trekking experience with India Hikes. Few issues like the cleanliness of tents and handling of sleeping bags and liners could have been managed better in the rains.” – Abhivyakti Dixit, batch of June 2017

“This was my First Proper Trek overall, and with IH. India hike made my First Trek an unforgettable Experience. Trek was moderate but constant Communication from IH about Training our body helped me a lot . About Trek Leaders.

Trek Leaders were Locals and So much Experienced and Caring. Taught as many things and was always with us supporting and constant motivating. About Food and Kitchen Staff. Kitchen Staff was also local and these guys were BOSS. They never let us realized that we are on mountains, far from connectivity by feeding us delicious foods which were nutritious, without oils or masalas, easy to Digest and in Evening Sweets too. Tents and Sleeping bag was top notch.

Trek Leaders checked our health 4 times in day to make sure everybody is fine and Capable. About Dayara bugyal. Starting of monsoon is not good Choice for this Trek. as We were not able to Reach the final Campsite but Trek Lead took us to another Point which was on same Height as the top which we were not able to Go. Surrounded by Meadows and on Top, you get a Panoramic view of the Himalayas on 3 Sides. Thins you Must Carry. Trekking Pole – It is Mandatory, It helps you a lot when you descend from Mountains. It takes all jerk your Knees Get and gives you a good grip.

Two Jackets – Mountains are so Freaking cold. Waterproof Gloves – You have to wash your Plates on your own so water is so cold so Gloves in necessary, I would like to Thank India Hike for making my First Trek an Experience and Inspiring me to Run Everyday and giving me a great group of Friends.”
