Backpackers INDIA group

“I was a height and snow phobic child and today trekking is my Life. Trekking meant the same thing to me as cigarettes meant to a chain smoker. I used to hike out with different groups across the country. It helped me a lot to network with the relevant people in the field.In 2017, I went for a trek to Harishchandragad with another group. I was stuck for almost 48 hours at an elevation of 4,665 feet, with lightning and thunderstorms. It was supposed to be a day trek but it turned into a disaster by evening, only because we didn’t have a local guide. This trek was a turning point in my life. It made me realize, I can do more. Thereafter, I completed my Basic Mountaineering course and went on to launch my own company by the name “BACKPACKERS INDIA GROUP” Which has turned 4 this year.Initially, the response was positive. It was more word-of-mouth than any conventional marketing. We introduced new products every 6 months. Gradually, the count of participants increased. Now, we run almost 3 events per weekend with more than 500 enthusiastic travellers per month.Being an Entrepreneur is not just about earning good profits and doing good business but giving it back to the Society.”
