Customize your Trek with Himalaya Shelter

In recent years, trekking has become increasingly popular in our country. It is emerging as one of the most favored extracurricular activities for the younger generation and corporate groups alike. Trekking, once considered a challenging endeavor, has become more accessible due to improved services, better equipment, and, of course, the willingness and endurance of trekkers.

Different age groups have varying preferences when it comes to selecting suitable treks. Additionally, different groups of trekkers may have specific requirements that need to be addressed. To understand and meet the needs of trekkers, Himalaya Shelter provides the option of designing a customized trekking program tailored to their preferences.

What do we mean by Customised Trekking Program?

At Himalaya Shelter, we offer you the option to personalize your trekking experience. Whether you’re a solo traveler, a group of friends, or a family, you can choose our tailored trekking program. This custom trek will be exclusively designed for you, considering your specific requirements for transportation, accommodation, meals, and any other premium facilities you may need during the trek. No additional participants will be added to your group. Opting for a customized trek allows you to fully enjoy the journey with your loved ones.

In this article, we aim to provide you with comprehensive information about what our customized trekking program entails and the facilities that can be provided during the trek.

Improvise the Itinerary:

The customized trekking program allows you to design the itinerary according to your convenience. For instance, Himalaya Shelter conducts trekking programs for treks such as Kedarkantha Trek and Phulara Ridge Trek separately. If you wish to merge these treks and complete both in one go, you can do so. A special itinerary will be tailored exclusively for you.

Let’s illustrate this with another example. Imagine you’re planning to embark on the challenging Bali Pass Trek. Typically, this trek takes around 8 days to complete. By opting for the customized trekking program, you can extend the duration by adding a few more days. This will allow you to spend extra time at your favorite campsites.

Therefore, in the customized trekking program, you can inform us about the total days you can spare for the trek and your specific requirements. Based on this information, we will design a trekking program tailored to your needs.

Certified Trek Leaders and Supporting Staff:

You and your group will be accompanied by an experienced trek leader. All our trek leaders are certified by reputable mountaineering institutions in India. They are well-trained to guide trekkers through the trek and handle emergency situations effectively.

We have hosted trekkers and nature lovers of all age groups from different parts of the world, and our courteous staff is well-trained to serve all clients and cater to their needs.

Accommodation Facilities in the Customised Trekking Program:

Typically, when embarking on a trek, your accommodation on the first and second-to-last days is arranged in a guest house or hotel.
