We love what we do… We do everything with our core values of honesty, hard work and trust.
Thinking back, when we were leading our first group of school students through their extraordinary journey with us, that’s when the passion towards student travel was born. In the end of every journey, radiant smiles of our participants kept giving us the energy to do even better than what we have done. Years later, a lot has changed…

Young Edsplorer is founded by a group of people with diverse backgrounds ranging from outdoor and adventure, education and entrepreneurship. Our work with schools includes graded curriculum and adventure based travel programs. We create and promote programs that empower our students to grow.
