Treks and Trails was established in August 2012. We were on an unplanned trip just 3 passionate friends. In one of our discussion Treks and Trails was born. The methodology being commercial and a Social Initiative. A brand was born. Treks and Trails India is now the leading Trekking Group Mumbai
Our belief be a Responsible trekker. As trekkers ourselves, we believe in doing adventure activity yet be responsible. Even as participants one is responsible towards the environment, campsite, local villagers. Also to oneself. Hence, we try to ensure that there is local participation at our events. As this will encourage local people from participation and generate revenue for them. Ensuring that no disposing of plastic along the trek trail, forts that we visit. As a small plastic bag of around 20 microns would take up to 400 years to biodegrade. Definitely not everyone has that time. The idea being that we need be convinced that travelling responsibly is a culture here. If numbers are to be believed 2025 an estimated 1.5 billion people will be out of their homes experiencing other lands and cultures. This has to be a mass movement.
The basic funda being of “Leave No Trace – take only photographs” in all our trips and almost 100% of our leaders, share the same thoughts with our participants. The events as usually planned well in advance with proper preparation. If need be we do REKI (a dry run for unknown routes) to ensure participants safety, time required, etc.
Mountain manners is required: As a trekker one should not trouble people from the group also avoid disturbing the local villages and adivasis. We should not create a nuisance by shouting, playing loud music while in the outdoors.
