As the summer trekking season approaches us, we at Bikat Adventures are preparing to have a rollercoaster season. The trails are getting ready for us, the flora and fauna are in full bloom and the mountains will greet us with the most magnificent and marvelous views.

Given the hectic work schedules and busy lives, it becomes very difficult to make time for these little adventures.

Long weekends are the saving grace which gives us a chance to plan and execute some adventures to take a break from the monotonous life.

This April, we have a long weekend coming up from the 19-04-2019 to 21-04-2019. This Good Friday weekend can be used to take on some of the most beautiful Himalayan trails. Here are some of the options for you to consider. Our batches for the weekend are fast filling. Also, since the March Offer is still on, these treks are a real steal.
