Bhutan is Beautiful! - Berkvam Family Review

Bhutan is Beautiful! - Berkvam Family Review
The Berkvam family just returned from traveling to Asia on an expansive journey from Delhi to Bhutan to Kathmandu. They explored the busy streets of Delhi and watched the sun rise behind the Taj Mahal then jetted off to Bhutan for a full week of exploring this remote nation. After attending the Paro tsechu (festival) and getting to meet Bhutanese royalty they continued on to Kathmandu for a quick day of exploring Nepal's capital. Here's a little more directly from the Berkvams:   We enjoyed all 3 countries. Bhutan is beautiful. It is still pristine because it is very mountainous and undeveloped. Our guide, Pinto,and driver, Dawa, were wonderful. It was a privilege getting to know them.   What were some highlights? In Bhutan, we bicycled through the Sha valley. It was a wonderful way to see the countryside. We loved it. Biking in Bhutan, a great way to see the countryside Hiking...

Meet Your Guides: Jai Bhati

Meet Your Guides: Jai Bhati
Namascar! More often than not the highlight of adventure trips to India is the guides. We know how important good guide is to a trip and we put a lot of effort into finding the best guides for every area that we travel to. We focus on using local guides in each area, ensuring that these guides possess a seemingly unlimited wealth of knowledge about their area of expertise. The last time I traveled to India I compiled a list of questions so we could all get to know our Wildland guides a little better. Jai wasn't my main guide at Kanha Jungle Lodge but he was my youngest and most enthusiastic! Jai grew up in Kanha National Park, a famous tiger park known for being one of the largest and oldest in India. His parents run the lodge and are experts in the fauna and flora of the area as well as...

We had a wonderful trip to Morocco

We had a wonderful trip to Morocco
The Seltzer-Blaue family of four including two teens chose Wildland for their spring break adventure to Morocco. Although they are very well traveled, they had never planned a trip with us before so there was a lot of back and forth designing a trip just right for them...   "We had traveled extensively prior to Morocco. We spoke with the other travel companies we have used and enjoyed. We also spoke with other companies we hadn't used and Wildland was one of them. Speaking with Kurt and his enthusiasm for Morocco and travel in general sold us on traveling with Wildland. We chose this trip because we wanted to experience the exotic, and we did exactly like the tour name Exotic Morocco.   'With the anti Muslim sentiment that exists in the US, it would be great if more Americans could experience the culture and kindness we experienced. I am grateful...

Hiking the Himalayas: Can You Do It?

Hiking the Himalayas: Can You Do It?
The short answer is yes.  Too often when people think of trekking in Nepal they think of Into Thin Air, of impossibly tall mountains, and of glacier-strewn ice fields. Too rarely do they realize that hiking into the foothills of the world's tallest mountains is doable for just about anyone.  Conde Nast contributor, Jen Murphy, recently wrote a piece outlining what you need to know about trekking in Nepal after she hiked to Pangboche on the Everest Base Camp trail this past October. She starts off with, "Suprise! You don't need to be an extreme athlete to tackle Nepal!" See what else she had to say below: Has the country recovered from the April 2015 earthquakes? In Kathmandu, many buildings and stupas remained in need of repair, and tidy piles of rubble lined the streets, but much of the city was back in action. In Namche Bazaar, a hub for trekkers,...
