Summer Trekking

For many years, the quaint trails of the Himalayas were sought after by trekkers and mountain lovers from all over the world. Be it Lord Curzon’s trail (now called Kuari Pass) or the Valley of Flowers, these areas were revered by westerners and Indians alike. Mountaineers, explorers as well as scientists from every part of the world visited these alluring mountains.
For the locals, Himalayas are akin to God. People have been worshipping these mountains for centuries, praying for protection from the outside forces as well as unforeseen events. The prominent trail, the famous silk route, which was used by the Chinese to trade the famous silk from the China, also crossed these mountains and helped in the exchange of not just goods but thoughts, beliefs, culture and religions. It is the same trail which has birthed many trekking routes that are used by the trekking community.
Sadly, with the end of the British raj and the lack of enthusiasm from the newly formed government, the field of mountaineering suffered and finally, with the climb of Mt. Everest by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in the year 1953, the visitors of Himalayas shifted to Nepal. As Nepal, the country of 8000 mts peaks, opened its gates to adventurers, the Indian Himalayas started shrinking from the map of mountaineers.
It is only now that people are realizing, much to their amazement, that the remote and often untouched parts of this region are laden with beauty and opportunities to witness the magical culture and rituals. It is also home to many rivers, most importantly the Ganges, Yamun, Bhagirathi and Alaknanda, which are yet to be explored for all they could offer.
The most important part, however, is the presence of many famed 6000 – 7000 mts peak including Chaukhamba, Bandarpoonch, Kamet, Kedarnath, Thalay Sagar, Changabang, Bhagirathi, etc. All of these mountain peaks are way more technical and difficult to climb than the famed Mt. Everest and have taken generations of climbers to successfully summit them. These peaks invite only the prepared and sturdy of mind. Venturing out in these mountains is an adventure of a lifetime, which takes courage, will and lots of preparation.
This is one of the chief reasons why we have chosen to introduce the world to the Indian Himalayas in a whole new way. The time has come when the lost glory of this magnificent region is regained. We believe in finding new routes and new lands for people who are willing to come explore with us and not just crowd a few common trekking routes. For this venture, we have prepared our team well. Our long lines of mountaineers and climbers, who have been part of innumerable expeditions, are certified instructors from the reputed mountaineering institutions of the country.
The other important thing that makes us stand out is the quality of equipment we use. These are expedition level equipments including 3/4 Season alpine tents, ropes, harnesses, carabiners and other safety equipment that accompanies us on all our trips. Needless to say, we are not just conducting treks but creating a wholesome experience of the outdoors which stays with you forever.
As we are people who are born, raised and trained in the mountains, the love for outdoors runs in our blood. We have crafted these trips with utmost care and intensive planning so that each and every day of the journey has something to offer, in terms of experience, adventure as well as learning.
With the advent of modern equipment, stable infrastructure and top notch safety standards, the world of mountaineering is changing and we, as mountaineers and expedition leaders, are working to make the mountains more accessible to people. Our extensive experience in the field is our strength and the mountains, our pride.
As aptly put by William Blake that Great things happen when men and mountains meet. Let us help you find your greatness as well!
