Well, most of our treks are usually confirmed by Thursday and you would receive a BON VOYAGE mail that would contain details as regards Pickup Points ( Location and Timings ), Outdoor Leader ( Point of Contact ), and Do’s and Don’ts. You’ll be added to the Whatsapp Group for all further updates.
Yes, the Bon Voyage mail would contain a link for Whatsapp Group through which one can join and interact with fellow travellers and outdoor leaders.
The interesting thing about travelling alone is that you get to meet new people from diverse backgrounds, and towards the end, you are no longer strangers. Hence solo travellers are always welcome to join us on our trips.

Safety and security are our priorities at all times. Hence it is safe for women/girls to join us on our treks and travels. Our trek leaders always accompany the team, and our campsites are secured and safe for accommodation. We also have female trek leaders who attend most of our treks.
Mobile connectivity is great for most major cities and towns. If you're hiking, then BSNL and Jio network is available for most parts of India.
For ATM, we suggest you to withdraw cash in cities as finding an ATM in towns might be a challenge.
We are extremely sorry, you cannot postpone to any future date in case you fail to attend the trek on the mentioned date for any reasons whatsoever (family/health/work emergencies). You can write to us at [email protected] as regards and our team will get in touch with you on the same.
Lunch is self-sponsored. As we are travelling across, we shall stop over at a restaurant/food street and you can order lunch for yourself
Make use of the laundry facilities at as many Airbnbs as you can. Whether not, inquire if your hotel or hostel has laundry services; it often does.
It really shouldn't. If you have a well-made, properly-fitting backpack, and the straps are fastened, you shouldn't have any back ache. Make sure your hips, not your back or shoulders, are bearing the majority of the weight.
You'll probably need several pairs of shoes, but make sure they're all light and match as many outfits as they can.
Running sneakers are our go-to footwear. These will enable you to run, hike, and stroll for kilometres if you enjoy exercising.
Flip-flops are an obvious choice if you're travelling somewhere warm.
