We offer special programs for students and educators
Anvesh Singh Thapa (Founder/Director) and Ing-Marie Putka (Communications) are committed experiential educators. Combined, we have over 20 years of experience in outdoor and cross-cultural education. We have worked with the NOLS, Where There Be Dragons, the American Embassy School and more, as guides, instructors and teachers in India, Nepal and the USA.
We specialise in working with groups of both Indian and international students (14 -25 years old) and excel in teaching river skills and facilitating cross-cultural learning. We are eager to work with teachers to craft the educational experience that they envision for their groups.
We offer the following opportunities to student groups:
Multi-day river trips
Whether you're coming from abroad or from within India, we would love to take your student group down the river. We will work with you to craft the perfect trip, including the learning opportunities you want for your group. We offer interactive lessons on topics as diverse as backcountry skills and expedition behaviour to river hydraulics and hydropower. Students can also actively involve themselves in camp chores, including setting up tents, prepping meals, or digging toilet pits. If you're interested in a bringing a student group on the river, please contact us.
tailor-made travel experiences
In working with groups, we have often heard, "But we can't come to India without seeing the Taj Mahal!" This has led us to expand our adventure trips to include learning service opportunities, historical sight visits, homestays, language lessons and more. From start to finish, we will work with you to create your perfect itinerary, and then be with you every step of the way as we explore India together.
Do you want to bring a group to India but don't know where to start? We will work with you to craft an itinerary to suit your group size, time frame, and educational goals. We have connections to NGOs, homestays, schools, farms, adventure companies, and other organisations all over the country that love to host students. We would love to connect you to them! And if for some reason we can't assist, we will pass you on to a reputable organization that can.
