Trek to the land of flowers
25 May 2018 blog by Anish Mohanty
So this all started when a friend of mine Puneet just trekked Markha valley with team Wanderers. I remember clearly he used to go on and on for days talking about the beauty of the mountains, simplicity in the local lifestyle, star gazing in the nights, camping – sleeping in sleeping bags and soon...!! It is then I thought of exploring trekking for myself.

29 March 2018 blog by Wanderers Team
I was always very inquisitive about Kheerganga trek. The stories of how the thick pine forests lead to the spiritual site of Khirganga temporary village (Kheer Ganga), a meadow at 2960m where Shiva is said to have meditated for 3000 years always intrigued me.
Things you should know if you are planning Valley of Flowers Trek
28 March 2018 blog by Wanderers Team
Booking: Book well in advance. It is important to experience valley in full bloom. The best time for the trek is mid July to mid august. Going in late August or early September, there is less or no chance of experiencing the valley in “full bloom”.

Why do we need a trekking shoe
07 July 2017 blog by Wanderers Team
Shoes are one of the most important equipment on a trek. From a small day hike to a high altitude trek and even expeditions, the right kind of shoe matters. Our daily wear sports, casuals and formal shoes will not last on treks. Trekking shoes are made and manufactured keeping in mind the different types of terrain, weather and many other factors.
Stok Kangri Trek Mountain Peak
05 July 2017 blog by Rahul Bhatia
We were a group of 6 trekkers from Delhi and quite experienced as most of us already did treks like Chandrashila, Kedarkantha, Har Ki Dun etc. So it was time we planned for Stok Kangri. I agree the attraction of doing Stok Kangri is its height (6153 Meters).
What are the things to carry for a 6 to 8 days of a high altitude trek
30 June 2017 blog by Wanderers Team
Track pants cotton, quick dry 2 shall suffice. A big NO to denims, jeans, baggy low waist cargos and formal trousers. Shorts and 3 quarters are optional. Other than the 2 quick dry tracks, ensure to carry 1 thick trouser that keeps you warm in cold conditions.

Road Trip in Ladakh
25 May 2017 blog by Aman Kishore
We started our trip with wanderers on a Thursday night. I took a cab from our house in Saket to Hayat Hotel. That was our meeting point at 11 PM. Took me about 15 – 20 mins to reach the main road outside the hotel and WANDERERS team was already stationed there to welcome.
Deoriatal Chandrashila Peak
19 May 2017 blog by The Timeless Drifter
Started from Delhi in an open Gypsy (it’s an old model 4 wheel drive) that has accompanied us in countless treks and off roading trips. Your drive does make a lot of difference. Not to say that taking other mode of transport in anyway impacts your travel. But for us it was fun right from the start.
Road Trip India
15 May 2017 blog by The Timeless Drifter
We chose Wanderers for our road trip. They have the best skill to show you around. The jeeps they use are connected with each other along with a mobile kitchen made out in a jeep as well. Additionally, Wanderers team also has the sleeping arrangement on top of the jeeps in form of Roof Top Tents and so they are the best choice for a road trip anywhere.
Markha Valley Trek
10 May 2017 blog by Rajat S, Delhi
I have done many treks in Uttarakhand, Himachal & Ladakh region including the Chadar expedition & quite a few with Wanderers. I know them from the days they used to run a beach camp ahead of Rishikesh by the name of Beach Hideout. It was because of my amazing experience at Beach Hideout, I started to know Lokesh (Co-Founder, Wanderers) personally as well.
Everest Base Camp Trek
22 April 2017 blog by Devjit Acharya
It was in April that I finally made it to Everest Base Camp Trek. I actually planned it in year 2014 as well but it did not work out. In fact, you make it to the base only when it is meant to be. The entire experience of this trek is just beyond words. To be at Kala Pathar and look at all those snowcapped peaks including the mighty Sagarmatha (or Everest) is simply magical.
Ladakh in Winters
08 April 2017 blog by Lokesh Khosla
Sure, there is so much more about Ladakh than what we have experienced so far visiting Ladakh in summers. The lakes, clear blue sky and the Milky Way in the night are second to none. Ladakh is equally beautiful, serene and magnificent in winters.It is quieter and there are less people compared to the road trip summer season and you only tourists.
Prashar Lake Trek
10 March 2017 blog by Saranbir Singh
Situated 49 kms from Mandi in Himachal is Prashar Lake Trek a beautiful lake offering its visitors with a beautiful view of Pir Panjal, Kinnauri and Dhauladhar mountain ranges along with River Beas running adjacently.

The Kedarkantha trek was amazing. It was my first winter trek and
second overall with Wanderers. The amazing views which I experienced

journey for the beautiful Kedarkantha peak started from Dehradun
which is a long drive to Sankri located at an altitude of 6400 feet...

05 February 2017, blog by Shubham Dixit, Delhi
I am a trekker for a few years now and Kuari Pass in winters was on my list for a few years. Finally, I made it to Kauri pass successfully in winters of 2016. I went with Wanderers as I knew them from before and had an amazing experience before on Har Ki Dun Trek. I was picked up from Dehradun in a temp traveler along with me.
Chadar Trek 2017
03 January 2017, blog by Himanshu Saini, Delhi
After an unsuccessful attempt to go for Chadar expedition in 2015 (which got cancelled because of a massive landslide because of which water started to get accumulated and the trek got cancelled by the administration), I planned for Chadar Trek again in winters of 2017. This time with Delhi based adventure travel company, Wanderers.
