Why Us…

Mystical Experience:
We expect travelers with MHT to get a taste of not only the physical, but also the mystical and spiritual landscape of the Himalaya. We firmly believe that people who choose to sign up for our adventure tours are quintessentially, true adventurers and explorers at heart. They are somewhat tired of their banal, repetitive, mind numbing routines and hunger for deeper, more lasting truths.

Prayer flags flutter in the Himalayan breeze. In the local tradition, these flags are called 'windhorses' as they are believed to broadcast the prayers written on them in all directions.

They look at their tryst with real adventure as a means get in touch with their innermost core again. When face to face with the wilderness, most of them realize that as in life, so in Himalayan adventure travel, the real rewards only come when you are willing to push your comfort equation a wee bit.

We believe that out there not just nature, but through it, the divine too whispers! The gompas that dot the landscape make the barren mountain cliffs look and feel more ethereal. It is here that one can see the ease with which the pieces that don’t fit in the city come together that inspires…nature, animals, God and Man. Big fluffy clouds challenging your imagination, vast stretches of colour coordinated mountains, trusting birds flying close to you, crystal clear streams… You can sense the thread that binds them in happy co-existence.

It is this mystical connection that you feel that completes your journey into the Himalaya!

Sustainability:
Simple things like carrying back all the non bio-degradable waste generated on our treks and expeditions, not lighting any open fires, ensuring that and streams are not contaminated in any way, when we use local water resources, effective management of human waste on our trips and cleaning & picking up all the rubbish we find at the campsites and on the trails we use …. are standard procedures followed on our trips

Working with different agencies, such as WWF – India, The International Snow Leopard Trust and MERU gives us a chance to give back to the community. Be it in sharing our field knowledge to help in surveys to establish wildlife populations in an area or, by offering our field expertise in some of the most inhospitable areas of the Western Himalaya on biodiversity conservation projects … We make sure that environmental concerns are not just in the back of our minds but, are an active ingredient in our operation.

We also strictly adhere to the global “Leave No Traces (L.N.T.)” guidelines in all our programs. All our adventure activities, be they safaris, trekking tours, mountaineering expeditions, wilderness exploration, or plain adventure camps, are designed in such a way as to leave no adverse impact of our intrusion on the delicate mountain environment.

Small is Beautiful:
All our groups are kept small and intimate, so that clients get excellent personalized attention and also the space that is essential for self discovery in these ‘Mountains of the Gods.’Small 'personalised' groups are our speciality
