Meet Your Guides: Surya

Meet Your Guides: Surya
Namascar! More often than not the highlight of a trip are the guides. How well a guide gets along with you, a Wildland traveler, can make or break a trip. Wildland puts a lot of effort into finding the best guides for every area that we travel to. Wildland focuses 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 went to India I compiled a list of questions so we could all get to know our Wildland guides a little better.
