Please note that single tent accommodation is now available on our trails at a minimal added cost. You can find it under the add-ons section on our itinerary pages. We will be allocating two trekkers in one tent otherwise.
If you would like to bring your own tent or sleeping bag, you can do so and it will be carried free of cost during the trek. Please ensure that your sleeping bag and tent match the required temperature rating of the trek. In case you aren’t sure if the grade of your gear is suitable for your trek, please call us at +91-85888-78499 and we will assist you with it.

What steps are we taking to make trekking safer post lockdown?
Over the last month, the Operations Team at Bikat Adventures has been pre-occupied with exploring all the precautions that can be taken to make trekking safer post lockdown.
A survey was conducted with our trekkers to get an idea of the apprehensions and expectations they may have. We have also been interacting with our staff and community in the mountains to get their perspectives on tourism resuming.
Based on the inputs received, our Operations Team has designed a list of precautions to be introduced on the trails.
