About Us

Our Style

At Raacho Trekkers, We offer a complete Himalayan experience starting from non-technical or semi-technical trekking to technical climbing and Snow leopard photography tours.

Our cultural experiences include tribal festivals tours, monastery/temple tours, and village homestay experiences.

Raacho Trekkers offer responsible travel experiences in highly ecologically fragile regions like Kinnaur & Spiti valley. We carefully craft itineraries to minimise the social, economic and environmental impact on communities, wildlife & environments.

We believe in smaller groups as it helps us give extra attention to individuals and puts lesser pressure on the environment. Being environmentally conscious is of high priority and we choose sustainable methods of waste disposal. 

We individually desire and strongly believe in cleanliness and hygiene so you will only find the neatest and cleanest of gear and food. Comfort cannot be far, and we ensure it to the limit possible; be it the only company to provide foam mattress in tents, to the quality of food.

We are in it for the love of it. And you will feel it too. Being native to the region, we understand the fragility of the mountain ecosystem and need to protect the primitive culture of mountain people. We always try to discover the routes less travelled by and reveal spell bounding beauty of the Himalayas to the world.

Our Story

We have been organizing trekking expeditions and road trips around the region since 2007. For the first time, we explored the route of Lamkhaga pass from Kinnaur side & in June 2014 we did the first recce expedition on Chitkul to Gangogtri(Lamkhaga) route. In June 2017 we organized 3 pass trek (Patangani, Auden’s, and Mayali pass) and was the first group to complete the three pass trek.

Our team was featured in National Geographic Traveller Magazine for the 3-Pass Trek Expedition of Uttarakhand.

Sonu Negi

Sonu Negi is the founder of Raacho Trekkers and he runs some of the most exotic, remote, and adventurous treks in the Trans-Himalayan regions of Spiti valley, Kinnaur, and Garhwal region of Uttarakhand.

Being born and raised in Tidong Valley, a region in Kinnaur where climbing and trekking is an everyday part of life, Sonu needs no citation in mountain trekking and climbing experiences.

He has been solo trekking since an early age and subsequently followed his dreams and made a career out of it. He has earned his reputation over the years purely on word-of-mouth recommendations.

The call of the unknown drives him and he is famous for exploring and creating new routes. There is no ‘been there done that’ with him. Always on the look for the next unexplored trail, he likes to create different and unique experiences for his clients, even on the more popular trails.

In addition to trekking, Sonu’s skills are in demand as a high altitude adventure professional for tracking the elusive snow leopards, creating cultural and adventure safaris for corporate groups and travelers, camping, and ensuring the list of exciting new activities and trails for the ever-growing followers of the Himalayas.

His main focus is less known treks in Kinnaur, Spiti, and Uttrakhand (Garhwal and Uttarkashi region).

L. C. Negi

L. C. Negi is an alumnus of ABVIM Manali. He has done an advanced mountaineering course and search and rescue course from the institute. He has more than 15 years of experience in mountaineering, trekking, and alpine skiing.

I didn’t go for any trek with them. But meeting with someone like Sonu Negi is the best thing that happened in my Kinnaur trip last year. In him I earned a friend, philosopher and guide. He brings out the essence of the Kinnaur region. “Son of the soil” you can say. Vastly experienced and knowledgeable guy. This is your “Docsahab” sending you best wishes from Kolkata. Eagerly waiting for a trip with you again next year.
