“Trek was amazing. The trek leader and the guides were good. Everything was taken care.” – Rashmi Malhotra, batch of September 2017 

“Registering for the Rupin Pass trek took some courage as it was going to be a moderate to difficult level trek. But nevertheless, I went to it and couldn’t be happier! This was my 2nd high altitude trek, after the Kuari Pass trek I did earlier in the month of May this year. The Rupin pass trek does require you to be really fit, as you guys mention; the distances covered every day were really long, with a combination of ascents and descents.

But the changing landscapes made it all worth, not forgetting the prettiest campsites. Coming to the facilities provided by India Hikes, it was all perfect. Amazing food as always and everything else was well organised too. Our trek leader, Imroz, was amazing as well with all the motivation (I needed this a lot as I had carried my own backpack this time) and the daily informative sessions (these were really helpful as he spoke about proper layering, about the use of oxygen cyclinder, even about lightning safely on an evening when there was a thunder storm).

The best thing about this trek was that we had a lot more solo travellers like myself as compared to my last trek. Overall it was a great group (Except for a chap who cribbed a lot) and an amazing trek! Can’t wait for my third trek (registered already)” – Riya Raut, batch of September 2017 

“India Hikes has improved the trek management significantly over the years. Rupin Pass was managed well with appropriate trek time, exploration opportunities and rest. Though the pass itself is at 15000 ft, because of systematic approach to the trek, everyone could complete it and enjoy the whole experience.

Gaga, Rajpal, Superman – the support staff was exceptional. Without them the whole experience would be tasteless – literally. Special appreciation for Ashya Surve and Vimlesh, the trek leaders for wonderful leadership and making the whole experience cherishable for life.” – Mangesh Patankar, batch of September 2017

 

“The trek was amazing. All the trekkers were brilliant and we never had to stop for a latecomer. Everyone walked almost side by side. To top it all, we got the best trek leader ever – Himanshu. Clearly an amazing soul and most fun loving person I ever met. I wish I get to do more treks with him.” – Parva Goyal, batch of September 2017 

“The trek started with the retreating monsoon though but till end it goes well except the stone which kissed my right leg. Apart from that there was no Walkie Talkie with our T.L. and the Rupin Pass banner was also missing which was badly required after we reached the summit. Since the trail was new for our Trek leader,we have to depend much on the locals who in turn were not able to communicate properly /define properly the trail at the begining of each day.”

“It was one of the most amazing and memorable treks ever! This was easily one of the most professionally organized treks I’ve been on. The multiple daily oxymeter and pulse readings + blood pressure is simply unheard of in other treks and gives me the assurance that every trekker’s safety is prioritized above all else.

I’m also particularly impressed with trek leader Devang’s professionalism, natural leadership and on ground knowledge. He has gone above and beyond the call of duty in his show of support and concern, from regularly checking on each of our wellbeing individually, being very firm on our diamox medication dosage, and keeping everything else punctual and running smoothly. He has earned my respect and I would gladly entrust my life in his hands in any future treks that he may lead. Not to exclude Dev our other guide, and Santosh – both of whom have exceptionally likable personalities, and have been warm, friendly, cheerful and helpful, who would also regularly break into songs during the hikes, or dance at our camp, shout encouragements, and who would always go the extra mile to ensure we were all comfortable and well taken care of.

Also not forgetting my personal gratitude to the rest of the amazing ground crew – from kitchen staff to our porters, whom have all done fantastic jobs too. Over the 9 days, I’ve not only experienced some majestic views along the way, but also formed a fellowship with my fellow hikers and the Indiahikes staff. It has been truly and unforgettable experience, and I would highly recommend Indiahikes to all of my other hiking friends in a heartbeat.”
