Why Mumbai Trekkers ?
A decade ago, trekking was not as popular as it is now, social media and other digital platforms made a huge difference and trekking gained momentum. However, people were still hesitant to go because of two main reasons, Lack of Information and Affordability.
When our founders started Mumbai Trekkers, they had already documented more than 50 different treks for themselves, and even though the information is easily available online, using that information is not easy for everyone when they go on treks, hence our founders decided to start organizing treks for people and at the same time kept exploring new treks.
Trekking usually attracts young people including students who are always on a tight budget for weekend activities. Our founders also started trekking when they were students and had a tight budget and always looked for budget treks near Mumbai, hence they knew this very well so they decided to organize treks which can fit many pockets. We are not non-profit organisation, however we aim to be as cost effective as possible keeping in mind the safety and overall experience of our participants.
Apart from that, Maharashtra has hundreds of Forts/Treks, and only handful of them are popular, we aim to bring more off-beat treks in limelight. Also we strongly believe and promote trekking without any harm to environment and ecosystem.
With this Vision and Values, we wish to Introduced trekking to many people and bring them closer to nature.
