the knowhere story

our philosophy

Knowhere travel is fuelled by a passion that goes beyond just seeing new places. Most of us feel a natural bond with the outdoors and it draws us into introspective reflection; it is an opportunity to find oneself. Our true selves are right there, buried deep under cultural conditioning and other people’s opinions of us. To “find yourself” is to actually return to yourself. An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering of who you were before the world got its hands on you. In today’s society, we are bombarded with stimuli that keep us distracted from what’s real, we live at a time where we’ve become less connected to each other and to surroundings. At Knowhere, we believe authentic and immersive travel experiences break the barriers that prevent us from finding who we truly are and where we belong. Knowhere is a philosophy shaped by these fundamental ideals.

our approach

Knowhere travel values wandering the expanses of the Earth in an ethical and responsible manner. We believe that keeping our sense of wonder alive leads us to rediscover our innocence and respect for the elements. Living our beliefs, for over the last 10 years we have wandered far and wide discovering the rarest of stays and activities across India. We’re talking lush wilderness lodges, secret mountain homestays, organic farms and pristine beach houses. We’ve also uncovered experiential and eco-conscious activities for those who like to combine the art of doing nothing with active holidaying. We encourage all travellers to look beyond conventional packaged holidays and experience immersive travel opportunities.

the motive

We often forget that the global tourism industry is responsible for nearly a tenth of the world’s carbon emissions. Today, the word ‘eco-friendly’ is being frivolously used and we tend to forget the fact that we fly and drive during our vacations thus destroying every notion of the term ‘eco-friendly’. At Knowhere travel, we strive towards helping travelers make conscious choices to minimise their environmental impact. We enable this through responsible travel models that empower local communities, support conservation of wildlife and preservation of cultural heritage by engaging with ethical hosts and small business owners actively working towards the cause.

the inspiration

We have always been enamored by a poem written by the great T.S Elliot-

We shall not cease from exploration,
And the end of all our exploring,
Will be to arrive where we started,
And know the place for the first time.
