In this video Arjun Majumdar, Founder, Indiahikes, shares the story of how Microspikes revolutionised Indian Trekking. He makes us back to when Indiahikes had started.
When we are beginning Indiahikes, we were mainly concentrating on high altitude treks. These treks were covered in snow. Navigating through this was not at all easy.
What we noticed was that as more and more parties started trekking, there were lots of slips and fails. Even though no major accidents had happened, the numbers were increasing.
This clanged us. We needed to look into this basic safety issue. We wanted to define the future of trekking and this was an important step towards our vision.
So we researched a good deal, we went to the best mountaineering institutes in “the two countries “. They indicated we use crampons. Crampons were inept and ponderous, they weren’t fit for our regular treks.
After analyse some more, we looked at what the person or persons in the western countries did if they had to walk in snow. We dug into another gear called cleats.
After a lot of experimenting, we finally came across these safety paraphernaliums – Microspikes. They were perfect for our treks. We knew that this was something our country needed.
