One in the orange jacket started because we believe there is so much to learn from nature and local communities which we usually tend to ignore.
All of our trips/treks are themed around that single fact: to learn more about the local lifestyle and natural landscapes : Mountains, rivers and valleys.
Our trips are for you ,
If you prefer places without network over places with 4g network during your trip
If you prefer sitting beachfront to see sunset , even if it means we might get our dinner 30 minutes late
If you don't mind going out for a walk at midnight to see the stars in freezing temperatures
If you are genuinely happy about motivating that one trekker at the back of the group who feels exhausted
If you are concerned to see plastic waste in the mountains, or anywhere else other than dust bin.
If you are excited about teaching 1st-7th graders in the small village schools
If you are ok with trying local cuisines over standard western food
If you are excited to meet new people and believe there is a chance that life long bonds can come out of such trips.
