Vegan trekking is the first of its kind in India where we have taken up completely vegans for trekking across Kashmir. We felt the need for catering to this specific client base which has been so long waiting to enjoy the mountains but could not find the adherence to veganism. Be it use of ponies, meat, non-plant-based food, etc.
In 2021 we hosted all-vegan groups for our special Margan Valley trek. The tour was a blend of trekking, camping, and experiences. From yoga sessions in the morning to massage therapy in the evening, from boating in the glacial lake to the stargazing, we concluded around 8 all-vegan premium trekking groups. We strictly adhered to plant-based food with some sessions on how to move towards a more plant-based lifestyle and get off trekking dependence on animals.
Environment and animal exploitation have remained our concern for years now. We are garnering an environment for more animal-friendly and plant-based trekking tours here in India and particularly in Kashmir. All our vegan trekking groups are premium with strict adherence to plant-based food and no use of ponies. In-plant base food, our menu has no meat, milk, eggs, or any animal products including honey.
Our plant-based menu
Coffee, tea, kahwa, plant-based milk like almond milk, soya milk, etc, vegan butter, vegan cheese, peanut butter, jam, aloo poori, or aloo paratha with condiments or tofu scramble with toast, fruits, nuts, oatmeal, etc.
