Swati Singh

Trip Leader

Blithesome | Adventure enthusiast | Recreational Golfer

Swati wants to be the woman who has circumnavigated the globe by bike. An electrical engineer by profession and an adventure seeker by heart, Swati was a National level Lawn Tennis player in 2008. She has an unnatural love for high places that imbibed in her the determination to skydive solo from 9000 feet and ride her bicycle up in the zig-zag mountains of the Western Ghats and the unforgiving Himalayan ranges.

She fell in love with cycling in the suburbs of Nashville, TN in 2016 and since then there has been no backpedaling for her. Swati took her first cycling holiday in Greece where she discovered about 100 kilometers of stunning views as you ride around the whole Halkidiki Peninsula. Her next cycling trip was in India, from Puducherry to Kochi in the South and then Manali to Leh in the North. And now it is her dream to traverse the globe by bicycle.

    Vijay Kumar

    Hike Leader

    Nature lover | Conservationist | Trek guide

    Kumar, who has the suffering eyes of a poet and the silver-tipped beard of a sage is a trail guide and conservationist who has been roaming the mountain woods of Western Ghats in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu for nearly 30 years. He has devoted his life to the study and preservation of the Palani Hills, the eastern swath of the Western Ghats, an effort that has taken on the urgency of a personal crusade as poaching, pollution, and the spread of non-native trees threaten to undermine the fragile ecosystem. He helped found a nonprofit, the Palani Hills Conservation Council, to address some of the region’s environmental challenges. The group runs nurseries where indigenous trees are grown into saplings and then replanted in the wild. They also lobby local and state government officials for greater protection for wildlife and trees.

    Kumar, who is now 65, was born on the scorched plains of Central India in 1954. He spent the better part of his boyhood in cramped South Indian cities — Hyderabad, Bangalore — but his father, a logistics officer in the Indian army, was stationed now and again in the Himalayas to the north. It was there, as a child, in the shadow of Darjeeling’s snow-covered peaks, that Kumar gained his first impression of real mountains, an impression that stuck with him and grew ever more vivid with time. His work as a mountain guide allowed him to scratch out a living in the place he loved. As his business grew, so did his knowledge of the local environment. He befriended botanists, geologists, naturalists. He uncovered new trails. On more than one occasion he nearly lost his life during run-ins with wild elephants and bison.

    These mountains have beckoned him since birth. They have fashioned him into the man he is. They have afforded a decent living and endless inspiration for Kumar. Now, he says, he will not rest until he has returned the favor. He has been recommended in the French guidebook, Guide de Routard, since 1991, and later on the Lonely Planet.
