Raacho Trekkers provide 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.

Sonu Negi

Sonu Negi is the founder of Raacho Trekkers and organizes some of the most exotic, remote, and adventurous treks in the Trans-Himalayan regions of Spiti, Kinnaur, and  Uttarakhand Garhwal areas. Being born and raised in Tidong Valley, a region in Kinnaur where climbing and trekking is an everyday part of life, Sonu needs no certification or approval in mountain trekking and climbing. He has been solo trekking since an early age and subsequently followed his dreams to create a career out of it. He has earned his reputation over the years purely on word of mouth.

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).
