Welcome to the Himalayan Adventures Info Website

A trek with Himalayan Adventures involves quite a bit of preparations and detailed planning to make sure you'll have a GREAT time in the Kumaon Himalayas. On this website you will find all the information you need in order to prepare for the trek.

The first thing you should do is to download the document called 'Guidelines for Groups.' This document gives you the basic information you need to start preparing for a trek with Himalayan Adventures and contains a lot of information that is relevant for your team members as well. The various sections are bookmarked to make it easy to navigate.

Another important document is called 'Additional info Team Leaders.' This document gives more in-dept information to team leaders regarding the treks, medical issues and travel. Most of this information is meant for Team Leaders as they prepare for the trip to India and may not be that relevant for other team members to read.


There are several steps you need to go through as you prepare for a trek, and in order to make it easy for you, we have made a list called Team Leader's Checklist. The check list is given below and for each point there is a link on the right side that will take you to the right document, page or form.
