Why Stay Three In A Tent: Indiahikes Founder Shares His Thoughts

A few weeks ago, we stirred up a storming debate about whether we should house two or three in a tent.

Surprisingly, we received rather contrasting responses.

Over emails, we received:

  • 471 responses in favour of three to a tent
  • 187 responses for two to a tent
  • 66 for putting up an addidional charge and allowing three to a tent.

Our website, on the other hand, took the other direction. There are 182 comments and still counting, all of them with strong opinions. More than half of them are for two in a tent.

But our founder, Arjun Majumdar, has a very different thought on this topic.

“Everybody knows that housing two people in a tent is more comfortable. That’s a given. There’s no two ways about it. But my thought is not on this. I think with three in a tent, there’s a very big blessing that trekkers don’t pay enough importance to,” he says.

In the video below he sums up his thoughts on why trekkers should opt to stay three in a tent. Watch it here.

What do you think about what Arjun has to say? Do you share the same ideas? Put your thoughts down in the comments below.

  1. Very well said, sir!!

    Agreed about how people prefer more about comfort more than social connections. Indiahikes is doing great bringing trekkers together through obligation. this is good.

  2. Totally on point. Trekking is always about experience and not about luxury. An experience of a lifetime at the cost of compromising a bit of comfort and luxury.
