Impact on the environment

By opting to rent trekking gear, you are reducing manufacturing. This, in turn, reduces consumption. By renting, you are having a direct impact on the environment. Production of any of the trekking gear is not an easy process.

These are technical gear. All of them require quite a lot of industrial process and very specific raw materials. These processes consume a lot of natural resources and also produce a lot of harmful by-products.

No matter how many steps are taken to curb pollution due to production, it still is affecting nature at large. We strongly believe, renting these technical gear is a simple way to avoid all the harmful impact on nature and be sustainable.

Impact on the environment

We recently conducted a survey with our trekkers to find out how much they spend for a trek.

The results were quite shocking. For a two-day trek, trekkers were spending close to Rs. 15,000 just on gear. We felt this is a ridiculously high amount to pay for a trek.

Trekking is a sport done on two legs. You should not be spending a lot of money to enjoy a simple sport like this. The gear you need for a trek does not come cheap.

If you are looking to buy even your very basic gear like Trek shoes, padded jackets, they are quite expensive. They do burn a hole in your pocket. By renting, you are reducing the cost of your trek substantially.

A common question asked to us is, how do we keep your students safe in the Himalayan Mountain Challenge program. To answer this we need to give you a bit of a background. Indiahikes is India’s largest and safest trekking organization.

More than 20,000 trekkers trek with us every year. They do so not because we are the largest but because of our legacy. Indiahikes has defined the safety norms for trekking in our country. We have brought in most of the safety systems, protocols and equipment that are now considered the standard requirement for safe trekking.

As a testimony, since 2012 we have had more than 4,000 students from the top IIMs of our country with us on the Himalayan Mountain Challenge Program. The mechanism of safety that we follow is very important for you to know.

For this we need to take you through the 3 pillars that uphold safety on all our treks — it stands on (1) The people who run the program (2) our safety processes (3) and our high end safety equipment.
