Psst..we’re much more than a Goa app

Newly launched experiences in Himachal, a walking trail and a fundraise!
While you’ve been busy jumping into waterfalls and sipping on feni, we’ve been at work curating experiences in other parts of the country. 
It’s hard trying out every hike and culinary experience we list, you know? But someone’s gotta do the work and we’ve now launched bookable experiences in multiple destinations.
With Urbanaut you can go quad-biking through a private forest reserve, embark on a truly magnificent glacier view hike in Lahaul, treat yourself at India’s only L’Occitane spa or indulge in a local picnic feast by the gushing river Beas.
Try your hand at Raku Firing – believed to have originated in Europe during the Middle Ages or meet Himalayan Bees(seriously). For the active ones, you can cycle through Dharamshala or Andretta or embark on a Mountain Top Jeep Safari that offers stunning views with less exertion.
Immerse yourself in local culture with a walk along a shepherd village or try a wonderful tea tour and tasting session.   
Mumbai is unbearably hot, but in a month, the monsoon will breathe new life into the areas around and you’ll want to try everything we have on offer. Try our Farm to Table experience in Alibag – where you’ll sample local Malvani cuisine in a rustic setting, or even go surfing near Mumbai
If you want something fun and easy to try with friends on a date – give our Glass Paperweight Making workshop a shot or our extremely popular Date with Mitti session where you can literally get your hands dirty with a pottery session (and a side of wine and cheese).  
The fact that more people don’t take advantage of this incredible gift is both a blessing and a shame. In partnership with Knowhere Travel, our fabulous experts in curating soulful, sustainable homestays and holidays – we present the Binsar Forest Trail. You’ll walk from one remote village to the next – witnessing stupendous scenery and hiking through old growth oak, rhododendron and pine forests. 
Each day ends in comfortable, community owned village guest houses where you’re served delicious hot meals with the warmest smiles. Spot exquisite birds and even catch a glimpse of a leopard or two! This is an unmatched, immersive holiday that one has to experience to believe. You’ll be giving back to the local community in spades while basking in the lap of nature.
We love Splainer.
A digestible, well-researched and well-informed news that comes to your inbox every weekday morning. So when they asked us to write a monthly newsletter – we were thrilled to bits! Read our April guest newsletter here and our May one here
This report 
by reputed VC firm Kalaari Capital talks about the rise of the ‘experience economy’ and even features Urbanaut! 
What an apt word to describe those who support you (and show you the money, too!) 
at the earliest stage of your company! We recently closed an angel round and gladly welcomed a set of stellar investors including Rohan Bopanna (yes, the Indian tennis superstar), Nibhrant Shah (Founder, Isprava), Nikhil Bhandarkar (Panthera Peak Ventures), Rohit Raj, Aneesh Sivakumar, Sridhar Rajagopalan, Bhavisha Dave and others. We’re thrilled that they share our vision for the exponential growth that awaits experiential travel and look forward to their close involvement. 
Signing off for now! We may or may not be back with a newsletter next month, but if we are, you can bet we’ll have an exciting update or two for you (experiences in Ladakh and Kashmir, perhaps?)
