Our Team

We at Accessible Adventure Travels have always tried to live up to our responsibilities for creating programs that match our superb destinations. We never stop going the mile to achieve excellence. It is a way that we give back to the places we love by bringing in enthusiastic travelers to these amazing destinations. And that’s what we do best. The men and women at ‘AAT’, some of whom have been with us right from the start form a vital part in the operations undertaken by our team; a team well equipped to meet the challenges of the new age travel, and cultivated enough to gratify all savvy travelers. Our guides & porters are well experienced, and know when what to do and how to do it and believe in it, too.

Our tour leaders and staff are among the “select few” from the regions you will be visiting. They are here because of their native experience, knowledge, their wide international exposure and education. Most of our guides were born on the rugged mountains that you seek to trek in on your holidays. They share the experiences of their own lives and families, along with their influences and beliefs, which provides a deeper understanding of the local culture and people. Many lasting friendships have been formed between our travelers and local guides. They are a central part of what we call the‘Accessible’ Travel experience. Perhaps, what’s more important is that our team as a whole is a group of people who simply enjoy their jobs…& enjoy it to the hilt.

We are extremely committed to preserving the natural environment when we plan your holidays and make doubly sure that the area is kept clean on the conclusion of our programs. We strictly adhere to the norms of the International Porters Protection Group (www.ippg.net) and make sure our guides and porters are well equipped and geared to providing you flawless services, always keeping in mind at all times first and foremost; your safety and protection throughout your program.
