Dreaming of Mandalay: India-Myanmar-Thailand Road Trip (Jan 2018)
This is a fabulously curated trip through three countries. We will be driving through three countries in a mini bus with a bunch of fun-loving women. We will start off from Moreh, the border-point in India and drive leisurely through Myanmar exploring the country in our own style and finally cross over to Thailand and finish in Bangkok.
Spiti Valley Hi Road Culture Tour
(August 12 to august 19)
Spiti Valley is a desert mountain valley located high in the Himalayan Mountains in the north-eastern part of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. The name “Spiti” means “The Middle Land”, i.e. the land between Tibet and India.
We are a woman-led experiential travel company. Soul Purpose specializes in off beat destinations and even with conventional destinations, we offer the right mix of adventure, culture and connect with local people.
The idea behind each Soul Purpose trip is to explore lesser-known places, add extra dimensions to holidaying by understanding and bonding closely with local cultures. We build our trips around a range of activities from adventure (trekking, rafting, diving, birding-watching, wildlife safaris) to gourmet experiences, history & culture trails, photography and more… Soul Purpose believes in building trips around experiences and creating stories for you, so that you can keep talking about the trip for days to come. We let you be a traveller and not a just tourist.
Why women? Travelling with your girl gang gives you the bonding that you seek. We women know how to let go of all our barriers and travel with a free spirit when we are with a group of like-minded people. For most women, travelling with family, never gives them enough ‘me-time’ as even while on a holiday they look out for the comfort of their family. Women have also become more economically independent and the opening of traditional mindsets have made this choice of traveling with all-woman groups a fantastic option for those who have the travel bug in their genes. Traveling with a women’s group gives you the safety you are looking for with the freedom to do as you wish while seeking comfort from the sisterhood.
Soul Purpose is an experiential travel company run by women
Meet the most fun woman to travel with
News junkie, writer, traveler, always ready for an adventure and marathon runner
For more than 25 years I worked in a newsroom: the adrenaline rush that you get with breaking news, the head rush of seeing your story going as the lead story in the newspaper to working behind the scenes in a TV newsroom. Travelling to meet people, interviewing celebrities was all in a day’s work. I am now a travel and food writer for newspapers and magazines like Lonely Planet. Economic Times, New Indian Express to name a few. I have also took to running at the age of 49 and more than 6 half marathons. Running has become an addiction and almost every weekend is spent participating in a running event…
“Yes, I have learnt something unique from this trip and that is “the art of stillness” in various activities — sitting at the bonfire under the star-studded sky, the long desert safari, coming across trees like the kejri (looking like a tree on fire), Neelgai sitting in harmony with the wilderness, black bucks flirting, flocks of crane basking in the sun. Thank you Soul Purpose for giving me this opportunity to make Nature my best friend.”

My experience on the Soul Purpose Urban Gypsy tour was fantastic from start to finish. Mimi and Vidya were excellent hosts, and I am so thankful that I found Soul Purpose.
The tour was well organized, and I felt safe travelling in a group of women, who are now my new friends

Thanks to Soul Purpose Travel, the adventure travel for women, I could realize my dream. I could attend the Hornbill Festival held at heritage village, Kisama, in December from 1 to 10. It showcased Nagaland in all its splendour.

This was an eight-day vacation like no other for my little girl Anushka and me. From start to finish – worry free, thoughtfully planned, the professionalism of the guide, enthusiasm of the porters, the class of the chef – were outstanding! This being my 4th trip with Soul Purpose is in itself a testimony to how wonderful it’s been to be with them….need I say more!!”
