In 2007, two young mountaineers, Rakesh Pant and Sandeep Rawat, met at the start of a Siachen expedition. The expedition ended, but a deep friendship had just begun. They shared a love for adrenaline and adventure. The combination that saw them traverse the mighty Himalayas, summit quite a few peaks and explore trails and paths that would leave the rest of us fainthearted. Soon, they were working for the same company, but in different cities. Sandeep in Delhi and Rakesh in Bangalore. But the call of the Himalayas was just too strong to be ignored. Sitting in restaurants in their respective cities, a plan was hatched on the phone. A plan to quit their jobs, start a trekking company and share their love for the high mountains with other people. But what would they call this company?
"How about Trek The Himalayas", asked one. "Perfect" said the other.
