Upcoming Treks

Bangalore weighs equally on the trekking vs corporate scale. The city is the spotlight among adventure enthusiasts. There are two types of people in Bangalore: people stuck in traffic wondering what to do next and people who hit the trail and return in the meantime (pun intended). You decide where you want to be.

Your mood is to trek? Hit the Western ghats.
Dreaming about water sports? Gokarna and Dandeli are your best bets;
Eyeing some thrill with history punched? Go to Badami and Hampi.

There are two options for transportation:

  • With Travel

PTU will arrange a vehicle. This will include the following -

  1. PTU will arrange all your transport to and from the base city. 
  2. Any travel to places mentioned in the itinerary within the destination. 

Example - Shubham chose the 'With Travel' option. A seat would be reserved for him to travel to and from the base city, travel for activities, travel from and to homestay to trek base, or any other case.

  • Without Travel

PTU will not arrange any vehicle. If you choose this, you will have to arrange for your own vehicle for travelling for the entire duration of the itinerary. This means -

  1. PTU will not arrange any vehicle to or from the base city.
  2. Unless exclusively mentioned, PTU will not arrange for any travel within the destination. 

Example - Shubham chose the 'Without Travel' option. He will not be eligible to board a PTU-arranged vehicle for any duration. Even if Shubham reaches the destination, say Gokarna, by bus or train, he will still be arranging auto/scooty for travelling within Gokarna. 

Note: PTU will not be responsible for arranging vehicles in extreme scenarios, like private vehicle damage. We will only be accommodating people based on availability. No matter the distance, this would always be INR 1000 or more per person. 

Note: Activities, stay, and food is the same for all customers in both cases.
