Ibex Expeditions


Founder Mandip Singh Soin's adventures have spanned the globe, from trekking in Sri Lanka to mountaineering first ascents in the Himalaya to studying tribal issues in the Andaman Islands. But his homeland of India is his primary stomping ground, and it's where Ibex leads all its trips. Virtually every adventure sport is represented in the company's trip catalogue: whitewater rafting the Zanskar River, mountain biking from Delhi to Kathmandu, downhill skiing in the Garwhal Himalaya, climbing 22,651-foot Mount Thalay Sagar, to name a few. It also offers softer options like archaeological excursions, culinary tours, and spa and aryuveda trips.
