About Bikat Adventures
Bikat Adventures has always focused on learning based experience in the field of adventure. Adventurous expeditions are basically fun because they give you a thrill of experiencing the unknown but the same unknown causes fear & risk. We strongly believe that learning the skills involved in trekking/mountaineering gives immense confidence and thus reduces the risk or fear. Our primary focus in all our treks is to build the skill level of the participants that can enable them to gain more confidence while exploring the Himalayas. With this endeavour, we implement learning modules on each of our treks so that trekkers from your community go back not just with the awe-inspiring feeling of climbing the mountains but also with a much greater understanding of the skills/knowledge involved.
To implement such learning modules, we have invested extensively in our Expedition Leaders who are specially trained in Rescue procedures from NIM Uttarkashi and in advanced emergency response (First Aid) mechanisms from Hannifl Center. We also ensure best in class camping equipment of rated sleeping bags & and 4-season tents. Even the local guides who we hire are trained in basic first aid (with CPR). We are a certified adventure tour operator by the Ministry of Tourism & Indian Mountaineering Foundation.
Bikat Adventures Reviews
★★★★★ Very well organized treks. Excellent team. I have done 4 treks with them and will do many more. Trek leaders are very well trained and experienced. Food provided on treks have a lot of variety and are home like. Tents are twin sharing. Staff hired by them are local, are very humble and cooperative. Back office team needs a bit improvement but on ground trek team is exceptionally good.
★★★★★ Bikat adventure is a leader company in Himalayan Trek organizer groups. They have expert Trek leaders and well managed tours. Service is good. Price is little bit higher as compared to others but worth for the service.
★★★★★ It was my second trek with Bikat Adventures. The Brahmatal trek is indeed a wonderful trek. Overall the trek was a great experience. It was more than what I had expected. To start with we had a great batch. They did a great job to push us and motivate us throughout the trek. Everything from the food to the arrangements in the camp to the trek leader and the staff. Couldn’t have asked for anything better.
★★★★★ Poor in planning. They cancel treks at the last minute and give trouble when you ask them for a refund. For people staying in other states apart from Delhi, it becomes difficult to make changes to travel plans made in advance, due their last minute cancellations. I have had much better experience trekking with India Hikes. They were much more professional and had finalized the group and trek plan almost a month before the actual trek. With bikat I had no clue whether the trek would happen or not until the last week. This happened twice with me....they aren't even giving me a full cash refund and instead have given me a voucher. To be honest, after 2 bad experiences I really have no interest in trekking with Bikat. I just want my money back. Screw your vouchers!
★★★★★ Many reasons why Bikat is my first choice: (a) limited number of trekkers (8-15); (b) professional, emphatic and warm trek leaders (Wakeel Bhai is BOSS); (c) trekkers' fitness is a priority, and warm up exercise and yoga is mandatory in the mornings; (d) much to learn from trek leaders' experiences and engaging conversations in the evenings; (e) trekkers set up their own tents under different conditions that allowed us to learn so much; (f) food tasted home-cooked; and finally, (g) my batch was in the same age group, so there were no divisions, we were all friends. I did Har Ki Dun over a year back, and our whatsapp group still exists! I had a blast and look forward doing many more treks with Bikat!
