We started Routed when we were 23. At that age, most of our friends were either on their way to mint money, or were planning the next big party. Here we were, on the other hand, with all that we had earned being pushed into starting something that we genuinely cared about - experience driven, impactful, offbeat travel. Everyone warned us that this was a BIG risk. Everyone told us to go back and do our "jobs" but the entrepreneur bug had done the deed, and just like that, after months of epiphanies and research, Routed was born. The hustle has been real and quite intense, but it has also been the most fun and fulfilling years of our lives and we would not have had it any other way!
We’ve had our fair share of apprehensions too. But our confidence in our work is reinstated each time we see people having their moments of connection with the mountains (or themselves!) or when life long friendships blossom out of a week long trip, when people fall in love, and when people learn things that change them in the most beautiful ways. It is reinstated when instead of dismissing us as "too young", people actually give us a chance based on the hard work they see us put in, when people actually "experience" instead of just mindlessly tick places off their bucket list.
This is our journey - full of love and life!

Think experience travel, think Routed!
I went with Routed to Meghalay.It was an amazing experience. I never felt out of the place being the oldest of the group, because of Surabhi and Suhas. I couldn't have completed the Double Decker live bridge trek without the support and encouragement of Surabhi. She is amazing.. her love for nature and her knowledge of locals makes her trips extraordinary and very different from so many commercial travel companies! Looking forward for more trips with #routed
It was after almost after 4 years that I decided to take vacation and ended up in Sikkim via Routed with Surabhi leading the trip. I was travelling to Sikkim for the first time. Through the well planned and niche itenary, we really saw the most beautiful parts. There was also a bonus isolated serene lake which we found in between travelling to places. Would definitely recommend Routed for any travel plans, especially if you like a fun surprise or two in between your travel. Can't wait to travel again with you guys! 💛
Their travel plans are impeccably meticulous and they cover the essence of the place and cover a lot of the unheard yet important aspects of the place and the culture. The trip to spiti was perfectly planned and I did not realise as the days passed super quick cause there was so much to do. I'd love to travel to their next destination and I'd definitely recommend them to all my friends and colleagues. Cheers ❤️
I went on Solo Trip to Sikkim along with Routed. It was an adventure of a lifetime that I will always cherish 😊. Surabhi is one of the sweetest and most patient person i have traveled with. I was travelling solo on my birthday , Surabhi and the fellow travelers went out of their way to make me special and celebrate my birthday . I would highly recommend Routed😃
These guys arrange d most awesome trips...from hotels to food everything was fantastic... And of course Suhas was an amazing tour leader who kept the entire atmosphere light as a feather...spiti trip is a must go!!
Routed was absolutely fantastic in guiding us through India, unlocking the little doors, finding the right spot behind the trees, enhancing so much the experience I had of this amazing country. From the south to the foothills of the Himalayas, Routed was always there to help us, answer questions and modify the plans if necessary. Afterall that's India, nothing goes as planned ;) And they are the best to deal with plan change, you won't even notice :) Thank you so much !! Routed <3 ** Try it -- Book your next trip **
Surabhi and Suhas are the most amazingly impressive people you'd come across when it comes to travel planning. They're so methodical, meticulous and efficient in their approaches. What adds more value to their services, is that you can totally feel the passion for travel ooze out of them! They personally made sure, that at each destination, we were comfortable, either by being there themselves, or by connecting us to people they know, or just even through their frequent friendly conversations on phone! We had the most amazing itinerary tailor-made for us - my friends from UK and me, and we loved how everything was organised so impeccably for us, that it seemed seamlessly effortless for us to move across 8 destinations all the way from the South (Bangalore) to the North (McLeodganj). They are so efficient in even accommodating major last minute changes, and emergency plan changes, and I can truly say they're the masters of eliminating the stress of booking/planning out of one's travel experience. You guys rock! Thank you so much for everything! I hope you guys achieve it all in leaps and bounds!
I went to Spiti with Routed and I have to say that it was one of the most memorable trips I have been on in the recent past. Surabhi plans her trips with a lot of love and it's very evident that she deeply cares about the experience of each and every person on the trip. Would highly recommend Routed for those wanting to explore India.
Want to have travel stories of unexplored and beautiful places , you should definitely contact them!!!! They make sure to plan their itineraries to make people explore the beauty of nature and have a wonderful experience for a lifetime :)
Took a trip to Meghalaya with Routed and it was one of the best experiences of my life. Surabhi and Suhas are excellent guides, they know how to make your trip enriching, adventurous and memorable. Can't wait for my next trip with these two!
My first trip to Meghalaya with Routed has been impeccably beautiful. Must say Surabhi and Suhas have always been around with anything you need, be it knowing about the place, to food, and shopping!!!! Surabhi has a crazy knack of not leaving anything undone.. so you’ll explore the unsaid (from the itinerary) too. This is the best part about her. These two wonderful souls will give you the best of the local experience and of course anywhere you encounter water Surabhi will make sure you take a dip! ; Huge shoutout to Surabhi and Suhas for helping me out with everything far before the trip! Much love❤️ Meghalaya memories was incredible just because of you two!
I took my first ever trip without my family and with a friend to Spiti with Routed. It's the most amazing place I have visited till date. If you want to explore Himachal beyond the conventional 'Shimla-Kullu-Manali', then you have to visit Spiti with Routed. They have well planned intineraries and the right number of days for your vacation. Even though we couldn't experience home stays due to restrictive weather, the hotel stays were very good, even the ones that were arranged at last minute. And last but not the least Suhas is an amazing tour leader.
When you get to know you have a chance to visit Meghalaya, there is absolutely no question in jumping the gun and grabbing that opportunity. But then you start to wonder whether this journey is going to be painstakingly difficult or smooth as sails knowing you have absolutely no clue of how to go about it. But with 'Saunter with Routed India' you are left assured that your trip is going to be nothing short of the best. With two of the best people you could ask to accompany you with, Surabhi and Suhas, who know the lay of the land inside out and have made the most perfect plan for you to enjoy your stay, you know you're in for a good time. Be it their most welcoming/friendly nature or their unending knowledge of every place you visit, their hospitality and planning was impeccable which made this trip memorable. This was one of the best experiences I've had travelling with them and I'm certainly looking forward to many more! 😁
Took a trip to Spiti Valley Aug'19 with Routed. Beauty of Spiti cannot be expressed, it needs to be experienced. This was my first trip to Himachal. Right from Chandigarh, Manali to Spiti, i thoroughly enjoyed. No mobile connectivity, a bonus for me. This was my first trip with Routed and I found them very organized and the service excellent. If you are looking for off beaten paths you must travel with Surabhi the tour leader. Of course you need to be fit! Terrain is unpredictable in this part …. Thanks to the lovely person Padma who drove us safely and to a great group of girls who made the journey so lively. Thank you Surabhi for all the love and care!! The homestays were a totally different experience for me and I will cherish it. Looking forward to few more trips with Routed! Cheers!
