Taarak Parasher, founder of Roads & Journeys, is always on the move. He’s either in the mountains, or skimming the sea bed or transforming himself into a kite harnessed to his personal parasail. He always wanted to start a company which encouraged promoting outdoors to the young ones because he believes nature has an answer to everything. He wants every child to take up at least one adventure sport as a hobby.

Roads & Journeys is a brainchild of a few close friends with a passion for the outdoors. Every day is an adventure waiting to unfold when you are in our company. The following poem by Sri Aurobindo inspires us to break free in our quest for the unknown!

INVITATION

With wind and the weather beating round me
Up to the hill and the moorland I go.
Who will come with me? Who will climb with me?
Wade through the brook and tramp through the snow?
Not in the petty circle of cities
Cramped by your doors and your walls I dwell;
Over me God is blue in the welkin,
Against me the wind and the storm rebel.
I sport with solitude here in my regions,
Of misadventure have made me a friend.
Who would live largely? Who would live freely?
Here to the wind-swept uplands ascend.
I am the lord of tempest and mountain,
I am the Spirit of freedom and pride.
Stark must he be and a kinsman to danger
Who shares my kingdom and walks at my side.

After getting caught up in the mad rush of the concrete world, how satisfying would it be to experience the complete opposite? Wouldn’t you rather argue about which star is the brightest than the best route to get to your workplace? Or about how satisfying a simple lunch tastes after a long trek rather than a gourmet meal that takes a chunk out of your bank balance?

At Roads & Journeys, we believe that when you decide to take a break from your daily life, you are greeted with an experience that lingers even days after your adventure. We have planned our packages and international trips in a way that they can be best enjoyed by the young and the young at heart alike. Whether it is waking up to a flurry of exotic birds going about their day within the thicket of the lushest forests or tuning in to the sound of a nearby stream gushing towards its destination in the most melodious manner, you will love every moment of your adventure.

We try to keep things as simple as possible, right from occasionally putting you up in a homestay with a local family to guiding you through some offbeat local attractions that are an adventure by themselves. Not to mention, our groups are usually compact so that each traveler can have an individual experience at their own pace.
