Group of Youngsters came together and started Bhatakna.com with a motive to make people around part of their Journey, where everyone asked them “kidhar jaa rahe ho Bhatakne”? “Kidhar gaya tha Bhatakne? ” ” Bhatakna accha lagta hai kya”? As a youngster a typical answer hit their mind “Tujhe kya karna hai? OR else “Tu bhi chal mere sath Bhatakne, fir samjega Bhatakna Kitna jaroori hai” and here The Journey of a Bhatkanti began. Keeping this in mind we started to organize Travelling Events to help Travellers, make their trip Excellent and Meaningful. If you are a wanderer, don’t hesitate to drop a comment or email Us 🙂
We are thankful to this company for organising significant trek for kalsubai this place is magnificent. Our sherpa (Smit) and (Kapil) was very interactive , entertaining , magnanimous and knowledgeable of history. I will not hesitate to recommend this company to my colleagues , family and friends.

The best trek I’ve ever gone to. I’ve travelled with many other tours but they are the best. From travelling to climbing, I was never bored. The trek leader is so interactive that you won’t feel lonely even if you go solo. They are punctual about their time and also they provide all the necessary services as per our needs. Enjoyed a lot during this trek and hoping to go on the same with this tours and travels.
