Eco tour company Natural Habitat Adventures has announced the expansion of its operation with a tour company devoted to Asia travel, Asia360. Natural Habitat Adventures purchased Asia tour provider Snow Lion Expeditions and is relaunching the company under the Asia360 name "to reflect its focus on all of Asia and our commitment to all-encompassing, deeply rewarding travel experiences," said Natural Habitat Adventures founder and director Ben Bressler.
From sharing a cup of airag - fermented mare's milk - with a Mongolian nomad family to riding in a rickshaw through an Indian market to listening to chanting monks in a remote monastery in Bhutan, Natural Habitat Adventures' new Asia360 travel division will provide authentic cultural journeys and treks throughout the world's largest and most diverse continent. Staffed by Asia specialists with decades of field and operations experience and under the guiding vision of Asia360 president Anna Griswold, the company will immerse travelers in unique local features and insider secrets of its Asian destinations.
The new division's tours include a summer journey through one of the last unspoiled destinations on earth with "Naadam Festival in Genghis Khan's Mongolia," and a fall survey of the forts and castles of India's Raj and Mughal dynasties, "Rajashtan and the Pushkar Camel Fair." With year-round, small-group departures and private custom adventures, Asia360 focuses on providing the full spectrum of the Asia travel experience.
