Idea and Inspiration behind TrekNomads

During his corporate journey, Naveen met Mahendra Rathod, who turned out to be his business partner. The duo went on a Trek where they realized the simplicity that mountain life has. 

The duo realized that there are a lot of people who are interested in exploring nature but could not do it, saying that trekking is for people who are fit and who would take the headache to coordinate and book all trek, travel, and adventure-related offerings.

The duo simplified the problem and came up with TrekNomads to help all people get introduced to the mountains, while the company taking care of everything right from logistics to permits, rules, regulations, building relationships on the ground with the local communities.

Challenges faced in the Outset

Naveen believes-

” We don’t grow when things are easy, we grow when we face challenges.”

The company’s biggest obstacle is that of the risk that work involves. With every trek, the lives of the nomads and guides are at risk. 

After pondering on how to overcome this challenge, the duo came up with the concept of insurance for all treks, covering complimentary insurance for all Nomads as well as for the staff.
