The rates are very reasonable. Insurance premium for most of our treks in below Rs 100.

How many people do you take in a batch?

For most of our treks we limit the batch size to 23 to 25 trekkers. For our more difficult treks (Everest Base Camp, Kanamo Peak, Pin Parvati, Warwan Valley) we limit the batch size to 15 trekkers.

Can the trek be shortened by a day or two?

This varies from trek to trek. Our high altitude trek itineraries are designed keeping in mind the acclimatization process. We would strongly advise you against shortening your itinerary.

Write info@indiahikes.in about it. We will tell you if it is feasible on the trek you are going to.

Can you tweak the itinerary according to my dates?

If you are joining one of our pre running batches then you will have to stick to the itinerary on the website. The itinerary cannot be tweaked. For a group of 15+ trekkers we can organise a custom batch with a new itinerary.

I have children. Do they get a discount?

We love young trekkers. Children between the ages 8-12 are eligible for a 50% trek scholarship. This scholarship is applicable for easy to moderate treks such as the Kedarkantha, Deoriatal-Chandrashila, Har Ki Dun, Valley of Flowers, Tarsar Marsar, Kuari Pass and Roopkund.
