10 Reasons Why You Can and Should Climb Kilimanjaro versus Mount Rainier

10 Reasons Why You Can and Should Climb Kilimanjaro versus Mount Rainier
A volcano is a volcano right? WRONG! Kilimanjaro is quite a different mountain than Mount Rainier. Here are 10 reasons why you can and should climb Kilimanjaro with Wildland Adventures instead of Mount Rainier on your own: 10) Climbing Kilmanjaro is non-technical – Kili requires no technical climbing gear.

Meet Your Guides: Ajai Kumar Yadav

Meet Your Guides: Ajai Kumar Yadav
Namascar! More often than not the highlight of a trip to India are the guides. How well a guide gets along with you, a Wildland traveler, can make or break a trip.

The last time I went to India I compiled a list of questions so we could all get to know our Wildland guides a little better.

His parents run the lodge and are experts in the fauna and flora of the area as well as...
