About


General

Since its launch, Muddy Boots has guided over 23,000 clients on epic mountain adventures, ranging in difficulty, including day hikes through the plantations of Coorg in Karnataka and bamboo rafting expeditions through the Wayanad Highlands of Kerala. The tours run over five different locations including Wayanad, Coorg, the Malabar Coast, South Kerala and Rajasthan and each trip boasts spectacular views and unearths local history. As a team, we’re not only responsible for providing exceptional service to each and every client, but we’re also responsible to our surroundings and the local communities we visit from time to time. As such, all our programmes follow a ‘zero impact’ policy to ensure no trace of our trip is left behind on the mountain, and we work tightly with local forest departments to ensure our hikes aren’t intervening with ongoing conservation efforts.

The owners

Muddy Boots owner, Pradeep Murthy, is an avid trekker, diver and climber. In 2009 he took his deep passion for the great outdoors and launched his own hiking company. Since then Pradeep has recruited 22 full-time staff from the local communities in Wayanad, Coorg, the Malabar Coast, South Kerala and Rajasthan. Each member is as avid about the mountains as he is and all have exceptional local knowledge of the surroundings. The staff's original experiences and insider knowledge adds a special touch to every trip.

Service

An unforgettable adventure into the mountains with an all-knowing local guide!

What can I expect?

On one of our Muddy Boot hikes, you will be picked up from your resort or hotel by bus or car and taken to the hikes starting point. Upon completing the hike, we will return to this designated pick up point where you will be driven back to your accommodation to rest your weary legs! Some tours pass through local villages where we will stop at independent restaurants or cafes to enjoy a traditional Indian lunch.

Throughout the hike, you can expect exceptional service thanks to our knowledgeable guides who know the best picnic spots, the finest viewpoints and the most spectacular routes past abundant flora and fauna. Every team member and guide has acquired global skills over the years including language skills and advanced safety techniques to ensure your trip is as rewarding as it is safe.
