Earthwise is the brain child of Indrajit and Manjiri Latey, who are both ardent outdoor aficionados and wild-lifers. Having spent most of their lives travelling and working in forests and mountains, 'Earthwise' is their dream venture of extending their passion with a larger community. Through their outdoor sojourns, both Indrajit & Manjiri have experienced tremendous personal transformations. They wish to extend this magic to more people and have them experience the therapeutic value of the outdoors. An addiction and passion for the outdoors has helped them see beyond the stereotypical perceptions of a tourist, as they are working to educate people of all ages, in making this planet a better place to live in!
