What we're about
We are an adventure company - ‘Kailash Rath’. We offer trekking, Jeep Safaris, hiking and adventure tours in Himachal Pradesh in India. We are based in Kullu and Manali.
We have our base camp in picturesque and breathtaking Rumsu where, we have our very own ‘Wooden Dormitory’ - set amongst the rising mountain peaks of ‘The Dauladhar Range’
We organize treks to various sites. More about trekking destinations can be got from our site - http://www.kailashrath.com
In addition to adventure tourism - we have adopted the village of Rumsu, where we help the villagers obtain long term employment and education for their children, we also promote environment awareness and help prevent deforestation.
We keep low profits and share it with the local inhabitants by giving them a livelihood. Unlike other companies that keep high profits and exploit the local people. The locals are of great help and support when we need them as guides to explore new destinations
Our friendly and warm approach towards the ‘Pahadis’ has brought them very close to us and we work together in harmony.
To experience the warmth of the people and the pristine beauty of Himachal you must explore it with Kailash Rath !
