We found Rajesh through on the day before our trek to Doditaal. Rajesh was VERY knowledgeable, informative and clearly communicated us our options. We told him our budget (which wasn’t much) and yet he was able to offer us various options which ensured that our trek remained within budget. He also has very good local knowledge of the mountains,...More

We went on the Gaumukh-Gangotri-Tapovan with Rajesh Thakur and his team. The team led by him was very co-operative, sincere, sympathetic, honest and punctual. All the qualities of his team members has been acquired by the wise leadership of Rajesh Thakur.

About Rajesh Thakur

Rajesh Thakur is a young and mature mountaineer and a trekking guide. The first impression you get when you see him is a sense of responsibility which he emanates. A very grounded mountaineer, he has completed his graduation in arts (BA) from SDSUV university. He says he wants to pursue a post graduation and after which he wants to spend time writing about the mountains and its people.

Rajesh started trekking when he was 19 years old, when he did Dodital. He started as helper, became an assistant guide and now handles things independently. He has worked side to side with sherpas who have summited Mt Everest, he did Bandarpoonch and Stok Kangri with them. His favorite peak is Bhagirathi-III, because he says the first ascent of this was by an Indian.

Rajesh was involved in the relief work during the floods in Uttarakhand in 2012 and in the rescue in Gangotri in 2016. He actively looks to use his skills and abilities to help people when any situation arises.

Rajesh says -    "The mountains have a big role to play in our lives and thats why I love them."

He fondly remembers a 70 year old client of his, who summited Stok Kangri 3 times and he says he was fortunate to have been there with him for 2 of those 3 summits.

As a kid he says he loved to play cricket!
