Vikram Maira is an ex advertising executive from Mumbai who gave it all up to follow the dream of setting up the Hindustan Trekking Company and taking over his family’s estate in Sitla – a 50 acre paradise set in the Kumaon Himalayas – offering a true getaway for those who want to commune closely with nature, exploring its nuances while being unafraid of venturing into its wilderness. An explorer, naturalist, qualified paramedic, expert chef and committed member of his community – who better to look after you on your trip of a lifetime.
Ian Preece has travelled extensively as a professional geophysicist, itinerant adventurer and in recent years has been the Hindustan Trekking Company’s resident photographer. It was from Ian’s experience of taking pictures in remote regions and mountains across the world that the idea for the photo-safaris and treks was borne to give adventurous photographers the best possible opportunity to capture the ‘picture of a lifetime’ on Vikram’s amazing treks.

A stunning view, our host Vikram “Mulberry” Maira raised the bar in hospitality. Super food, excellent advice on how to spend the day and general guidance on trekking was really appreciated..
