WANDERLAND – A mysterious land, an irresistible desire to explore the unexplored, to understand one’s very existence.
We are all wanderers in our life, always looking for the next adventure, some of us are bold and some need to be pushed. It was this nomadic streak that got us to create WANDERLAND ADVENTURES. In order to experience and live your adventure you need to let go of your inhibitions. Hence our motto is to help you ‘Lose Yourself to Rediscover..!’
Years of wandering, creating local bonds, discovering the unexplored, climbing snowy mountains, diving in chilled rivers, rafting down choppy waters, and after many such adventures, we woke up one day with the urge to share. We want to now wander with others and spread these untold stories.

Rishi Murdeshwar (Founder & Partner)
He led a typical city life, an MBA in Finance, high paying jobs with the best of corporates like Citigroup, Accenture, Serco. Happy but Lost. There was no eureka moment, there was no low point in his life, no stress levels he couldn’t handle, but just a simple walk in the mountains, made him realise there is much more to life than business reviews & quarterly meetings. He decided it was time to lose his this self and go wander and rediscover his true self. Few weekend treks around Sahyadris and every vacation in the Himalayan valleys - Pangarchula, Hari-ki-dun, Satopanth, Mt. Plateau, it didn’t take him any time to discover what his calling was. He decided to move to the Himalayas & follow his dream. So he quit his job to start a trekking company and share his love for the high mountains with other people.
Rishi is the brain behind Wanderland Adventures and would work closely with you in planning and executing your adventures.
He now lives by the saying, “If you can work at something you love, you will never work a day in your life.”
