TestimonialsWhat are explorers saying?

Gave a different meaning to the word “explore” to me

“I loved the experience of this trip. It was refreshing and gave a different meaning to the word “explore” to me. There were quite a few WoW moments: after a tiring afternoon trek, seeing a tummy filling ethnic Thali was certainly a WoW and Aha! moment. The scenic points, especially the first one which showed the whole valley was great, I wish I could be there also at sunset. Then receiving history and geology gyan – the conversation were full of knowledge and created curiosity. Would love to go on some more of these. :)”

Been to many treks… but this was a different feeling

“It was a wonderful experience. I have been to many treks… 1 day, 2 days, 7 days and more. But this was a different feeling. It was a day trip… picnic, exploring, temple visits, a peep into our rich history, savoring the beauty of mango grove, good food, enthusiastic team including a 3 year old… all bundled into one. The trip made so much more sense with your explanations and  enthusiasm. I am amazed at your treasure of knowledge!”

Explore the unexplored….which is crazy fun, makes you feel like a Discoverer

“I like to travel, explore and discover nature, and the trip with India Nearby just had everything and something unique. You actually learn things, interesting things, amazing facts about the place you are visiting. You explore places which are unexplored….which is crazy fun, makes you feel like a Discoverer. The way India nearby lets you explore the trip is pretty awesome. And the food :) it was fun to explore different dishes in our lunch. I had a great time, enjoyed every moment. Keep it up…keep going…Can’t wait for my next trip with you guys. CHEERS”

Hills of the elusive Bulbul 2018
Not just a hot-spot visit

“For a person like me who is more of a home dweller than an explorer, it was a day spent well with India Nearby. A moderate climb up the hill, visit to ancient temples on the way, understanding the historical evidences in the ruins and the appetizing food made the trip truly memorable and not just a hot-spot visit.”

The trip was an Experience!

“The trip was an experience. Learnt about the Veera-gals (Hero-stones), that had a great and gruesome story to it. I did not know that Sati was a practice common even in South India. The actual poet’s place was surprisingly heavy on content.
