Though born and bred in Kerala, in south of India, Bala’s knowledge of the Himalayan landscape leaves even the most well informed with a sense of bewilderment. Apart from being a co-founder and Director at GIO, his love for the outdoors often translates into him making trips into new and unchartered territories across India where his solitude would not be disturbed. With MBA from NMIMS, Mumbai, Bala utilizes his corporate skills to handle bulk of the domestic travel business and is also responsible for international marketing at GIO Adventures. A keen biker, Bala doesn’t hesitate to get on the road less traveled from where he derives inspirations for crafting diverse team experiences. The Team Adventures is a brain child of Bala who comes with over 18 years of expertise in the field of Outdoors & Adventure. Combined this with deep understanding of corporate attitudes has led him to curating exclusive team programs which promise to deliver non-imposed learning. Bala firmly believes that an outdoor experience is a great way to bring everyone out of their comfort zone and that each participant derives a unique self-discovery after a gruelling adventure break.
