What our guests say

Benefits Of Travelling With Us

Value for Money

The prices of our trips provide a high value for money returns. They are priced to keep our standards high and your trip, smooth. Cost usually is a deciding factor for many a trip, but for an adventure trip, the deciding factor should be confidence in your operator. We combine high operator confidence with a pricing balanced to give you a trip to remember.

The Best Equipment

Equipment on all our adventure travel trips matches worldwide standards. On treks, we use 4 season 2-person tents, which can withstand the harshest weather conditions, and keep you dry and protected from the elements. Outfitter wings accompany all mountain trips for dining under.

Our Experienced Team

Our team of guides has years of experience of travel throughout the Indian Himalaya, from running rivers to leading treks – from the barren Zanskar to the tropical rainforest of Arunachal Pradesh. They speak English, have completed graduate school, are current with First Aid and CPR certification and form the most experienced guiding team in the country today.

Great Food & Logistics

Our staff is trained in hygienic preparation of meals and offers a great variety of food on an outdoor trip. We have our own transport for moving our guides and equipment to ensure we are always on schedule. We work towards lessening the variables that can make or break your trip.

We Run All Trips Ourselves!

We run all trips ourselves – there is no subletting on our trips. We are directly responsible for your safety and the completion of your tour, from start to finish.

We Use Self-Bailing Rafts

On rafting trips, we use only self-bailing rafts, with a cataraft or kayaks back up to add safety. We encourage participants to raft all sections of the river, knowing fully that the big rapids (which you may well want to walk around) only add to the trip; often becoming a fond memory, years after the trip is over. We outfit you completely.
