THEMES

Name your fantasy, and we’ll fashion a route bearing your particular passions, quirks and sleep schedules.

PLACES

We have personally scoured the corners and crevices of the diverse cultures and countrysides of the world. We found kind hosts and breath-taking landscapes to guide you towards. We are constantly renewing, refreshing, re-imagining our trove of curiosities. All our collaborators share our aesthetics, our ethics and our joy.

Ibex Departures

Led by photographers, explorers, writers, environmentalists, yogis, artists and locals of the land.

OUR PLEDGE

Sustainability is not simply part of our ethos, it forms the very essence of what we do and why do it. With every walk you take, every community you visit, we invent ways to travel for a greater good. Leave no trace even as you make an impact.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Expedition to Mt Meru

    ” Anita and Mandip, Thanks again for the wonderful logistics and great staff for the Meru expedition. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our experience in India. Ibex – the best game in town”

    -Conrad Anker, USA

  • Humanitarian tour in South India

    “The humanitarian projects were a good idea and I do appreciate that you were able to use the money to make great sewing kits. Seems that they were much needed and much appreciated. We found other ways to give out the reading glasses to many in the villages. The group loved being with the women in the Tsunami project, and I think it was a highlight for them to learn how to make the dolls. Thank you for all your help in setting up this adventure.”

    -Susan Eckert, USA

  • Wildlife Tour to Ranthambhore and Corbett

    “Of all the 13 tours I’ve led, our 3 Ibex escorts were by far the best – friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and a tower of strength.”

    -Joan Robb, New Zealand

  • Expedition in Garhwal

    “We had a very successful trip with the 2nd ascent of Shivling East ridge. Very smooth and professional service – great people! Definitely return with Ibex.”

    -Mark Richey

  • Trekking in Kishtwar

    “It is our opinion that care of the environment is at the very heart of Ibex Expeditions business philosophy. This is the main reason why we choose to travel with Ibex since we know that the beautiful mountain environment is safe with them.“

    -Dave & Dawn Hatton, UK

  • Luxury holiday in India

    “As a lover of luxury, I was nervous (to say the least) about my forthcoming trip in India. What a mistake. The people, the views, the air, the atmosphere, the organisation… now that is what I call luxury!”
    -Samiya Sheridan, Oman

  • Cultural holidays in India

    “Together with friends, I have made four trips in India with Ibex—cultural explorations of Rajasthan and Orissa, and treks in Sikkim and Ladakh. They were all beautifully designed and flawlessly executed. Anita and Mandip understand my tastes and interests, and show us the best of India. I would not consider travelling in India without Ibex!”

    -Jim Stent, Thailand

  • Trekking in Sikkim

    “I am extremely pleased to tell you that our adventure in Sikkim was just wonderful thanks to a perfect organisation of IBEX. I would like to confirm my personal appreciation for the special kindness and friendship received when we were your guests in India and the outstanding professional support during the entire trip. We all hope to see you again in the near future.”

    -Don Arturo Bergamaschi, Italy

  • A trek in the Garhwal Himalaya retracing the steps of Frank Smythe

    “Just a message to express my post travel sense of a fine ‘mission accomplished’ and the excellent way you and your organisation made my nostalgic visit to my old Garhwal haunts. Such a memorable experience.”

    -John Millar, UK
