Mohit Aggarwal, CEO
My love and admiration for Nature grew and got an official stamp when I joined TRAFFIC-India which was then a part of IUCN and was housed in the Indian headquarters of WWF-India. My colleagues Mr. Ashok Kumar and Mr. Vivek Menon helped me learn a lot and made me unravel several lesser touched dimensions. Ashok has been my guru and Vivek is a true pal. The year 1994 was highly eventful and brought a turning point in my life. I started Asian Adventures, a concept to bring school children closer to nature. In due course of time, the concept became wider and better in scope and reached and established camps and lodges in some of the most pristine and lesser-touched locations of the country. Jungle Lore Birding Lodge at Pangot near Nainital is the first birding lodge in India and one out of many establishments managed and manned by us. Each place has its uniqueness and saga to narrate. Recently, after completion of GSTC training and being inducted as a board member of Asian Ecotourism Network, I see a huge possibility of bringing ‘green ecotourism’ concepts and methods to the country.
