Why choose us

Trekkers’ safety and comfort are of the utmost priority to us at Rockkers Adventures. This is reflected in conduct of our treks, through our courteous and experienced staff, our equipment standards, hygiene, and respect for the nature and outdoors. We equally value the fragile nature of biodiversity and thus indulge in organizing minimum impact treks, while ensuring an authentic and complete experience for our trekkers.

  • Our Equipment: We use 4 season tents on all our treks to ensure an added layer of safety. We have high quality tents from premier mountaineering equipment companies such as Simonds, Vingo and Alps Mountaineering.
  • Our Sleeping bags are high altitude ready and ensure comfort during cold weather. We take into account hygiene and thus ensure the cleanliness of our sleeping bags.
  • Our Conduct: Our guides are experienced in the outdoors and always put guest safety first, even if that means making tough decisions.
  • We emphasize on localization as being integral to sustainable growth and thus try to the extent possible to use local food products, which in turn provides trekkers an added experience of getting familiar with local cuisine and culture.
  • At Rockkers Adventures we employ locals while organizing treks, and support their training from institutions such as Nehru Institute of Mountaineering, thus contributing towards rural development through empowering local people.
  • Rockkers Adventures never indulges in setting up of fixed camps which work as achilleas heel for the fragile environs of meadows. We urge trekkers to trek responsibly and always raise these concerns with their organizers.
