Chennai Trekking Club
With over 40,000 members, this non-profit - volunteer-based group is the most popular trekking club in Chennai. They organise several outdoor, sports, environment, and social activities every day. They organise two-three weekend treks, mostly in and around South India. They have organised close to 300 treks to date. The best part about their treks is that they don't usually take the existing trails and travel the unexplored trails. This club also has several expats who are members.
From trekking to snow-clad mountains to beaches, Wandermile, an experiential adventure company is new to Chennai but have become popular in a short span. Started by three travel enthusiasts (Rakesh, Rekha, and Arjuno) have a lot of information about secret and hidden places and plan their trips around it. Wandermile organises regular treks and camping, for example, you can trek to Nagalapuram and watch a thousand butterflies swarm in the woods, dive into a quarry, or camp out at Gandikota, the Grand Canyon of India. Besides South India, they also do treks to well-known destinations in the Himalayas in Himachal Pradesh.
