ECOLOGICALLY SUSTAINABLE, SMALL GROUP, LOW IMPACT TREKKING COMPANY IN INDIA
We Only Organize Lesser Done, Uncrowded, Customizable & Personalized, Small Group Private Trekking Tours In The Himalayas

Important Trek Booking Information

International Guests: We have a good reputation with our International Guests and more than 70% of our clients come from all over the World. France, Greece, Hungary, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, China, Malaysia, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, USA, Canada, Chile, South Africa, Bangladesh, Srilanka, UAE, Iran, Turkey, etc have used our services in the past with excellent satisfaction and maintain a good bond with us after the journey. Trek cost for foreigners is slightly higher than the cost for our Indian guests. This slightly higher cost is primarily due to different applicable permit fee applicable as compared to domestic tourists, for admission to the National Parks or protected forest areas and higher cost for other efficient Liason officers and English speaking local guides, support crew, customized food menu, etc. However, unlike a few other organisations, we absolutely DO NOT 'hyper-charge' our International guests ever and at the same time, ensure that we meet all the standards for highly qualified trek leaders and guides, safety, medical preparation, evacuation strategy, rescue arrangements, eco-sensitive travel, high-value knowledge sharing about the area and customs of the locals. 

 

 

Private Group: We love to trek in smaller private groups and that's what we do majorly. We trek with a small team, with efficient support staff deep into the Himalayas to experience the true Himalayan Rawness and Solitude, as we believe that it gives the best ambience to experience the Himalayan spirituality, serenity, solitude, and rawness. Small private groups are also eco-friendly, safe, easy to manage and more caring towards each other. Most importantly, private groups are more focused on their objective, especially for difficult treks above 6000 meters. They can be customized to suit your needs. On the other hand, they cost a little more due to more dedicated resources serving a small team. We specialize in arranging customized private groups catering to your specific needs. We offer a classic experience of trekking in the Himalayas unlike lots of other agencies who trek with a large team at very low cost and move like a flock of sheep in the mountains out to graze on the grass without adding any value and aesthetics to the travel experience.

 

 

Open Groups: Open groups are fixed departures that we organize on a few of the popular trek routes. We form a group of not more than 15 members through our website. The cost and itinerary of these treks are fixed.

 

 

ON ANY OF OUR TREKS, WE ATLEAST PROVIDE:

 

  • Sleeping Dome Tents (3 0r 2 person ),
  • Thick Waterproof Foam Mattress,
  • Subzero Sleeping Bags with fluffy and warm fleece sleeping bag liners, ( Down feather sleeping bag liners of extreme and premium treks ),
  • Toilet tent with seat,
  • Kitchen Tents,
  • Dining Tents with seating stools and serving table,
  • Washing area and sack bins to collect waste.
  • On a few of the extreme treks, we provide hot water bags and expedition down jackets as well.

 

 

 

 

Safety And Preparedness:

We are headed by owners who are Search And Rescue Certified by UIAA and Indian Mountaineering Foundation, apart from being Basic and Advanced Mountaineering certified students of Mountaineering aspiring and practising within their work itself, to become successful Climbers and Expedition Leaders themselves. Each one of them brings lots of on-field experience in the Himalayas to Himalayan High. Being sincere students of the same sport itself, we understand and believe in, the importance of safety on such adventures in the remote corners of the Himalayas.

Standard Safety Gears that we always carry or provide on our treks are:

 

On Summit treks above 6000 meters or treacherous treks in raw terrain, we provide each climber with:

  • a helmet,
  • walking ice axe,
  • ascenders and descenders,
  • harness and locking carabiners,
  • climbing boot, crampons and gaiters.
  • climbing rope and anchoring devices

On Moderate to Strenuous Snow Treks, we provide each trekker with:

  • a pair of Gaiters
  • Ice Traction Mini Crampons
  • Rope, wherever required

 

 

 

Techniques, Medical Safety, And Other Safety Measures: We teach snow technique and self-arrest a fall on snow slopes in an added 1 or 2 orientation day in the base camps of a peak. Medically, all of our groups are equipped with Oxygen cylinders, pulse oximeter, BP meters, thermal temperature scanner to monitor individual medical vitals. We carry High Altitude Medical Kit accompanied by an experienced and capable leader. We use wireless sets and available mobile signals for efficient communication and coordination. Safety Gaiters and Ice Traction crampons are always provided which has many times proved to boost the confidence of an amateur trekker or has saved an experienced trekker from a casual slip and fall. Most importantly, we trek in Small Groups increasing safety and success on summits as well. In fact, our summit success ratio over 6000-meter peaks is envied by many. Everything is a result of a well planned, safe trek. From food to sleep-comfort to safety.

Finally, In all of our treks, we pay attention to and breed and nurture a culture of Positive Attitude. We teach, to motivate and boost, the intrinsic sense of adventure inherent in a human being - be it for survival, adaptation to the unknown environment with excellence, possessing the heart that cares for the Ecology, and a Mind that likes winning over the challenges - Be it Life or the Mountains. In that process, we too learn constantly, bettering ourselves and our team, day by day... We believe that any Himalayan trek is not worth undertaking if you do not return as a better and harder human being.
