About Trans Himalaya
The idea of starting treks for Indians came in to my mind when I was at Nepal this year doing a small trek of Indradaha with my 5 year old daughter. I found only Europeans there and Indians were hardly 1% of all trekker in Nepal.
When I came back from Nepal then I thaught to do something so that Indians feel it convenient to go to Nepal and do the trekking. There are so many beautiful treks in Everest region and Annapurna Circuit. Right now my focus is limited to couple of nice treks in Trans Himalaya region Only. I setup the website TransHimalaya.in.
We have already started to get the bookings for Everest base camp treks and Mt. Kailash Mansarovar from College and Corporate groups, Even from Europe, China.

Whom are you targeting?
Priyanka Kotiya, “Now we have come to the age where just going Shimla, Manali is not cool. Also people do not like to go Dubai,Singapore type of places when we have world class malls already in our cities. We expect the outdoor adventure space will grow exponentially. Our prime client focus is college student and corporate groups. We are in process to make it Everest Trek, Group Tour to Ladakh a frequent thing for final year students and office goers.
Some trekking spots like Everest need 2 weeks so it may affect the corporate clients so we are also entering in Uttarakhand, Leh region with small treks of 4-5 days. After all trekking activity is going to be best HR Practice for training in area of Leadership development & Team work.”
