Success at 16500 feet!!

At Kalypso we have always taken pride in our guides, but this day  is extra-special…for, a bunch of our boys have just completed their mountaineering course at the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute and all of them have graduated with A grades!! Roger, Satheesh, Raja and Shinas – you have shone for us today!

The 28-day course involving rock, snow and ice climbing is arduous but exhaustive. It empowers the student to participate in any expedition that ventures upto 7000feet. The field training at the institute’s scenic base camp behind them, the Kalypso quartet finished the course with the tough climb to the peak of Renok at a height of 16500 feet.

We believe that our Team Kalypso occupies a singular position in that they regularly undergo refresher training in their core professional areas like rope skills, natural history, wilderness medicine etc by the best in the field. They have also received at various times, certification from pioneer institutes like HMI, Red Cross etc.

Kalypso believes that the spirit of adventure is what has kept mankind going since the beginning of Time. Today as our young adventurers receive their honours, we are satisfied we are doing our bit to keep that flame burning bright and strong.

Congratulations, Team Kalypso!

Kalypso Adventures featured in Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club-2018

In a first of its kind honour, Kalypso Adventures, an adventure tour company with operations in India and Srilanka, has been featured in the RREC (Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club) publication “In Pursuit of Excellence”, which was  released on 23rd March 2018 at Goodwood House, Chichester,London.

Kalypso Adventures is the only company from India to feature in this publication, which is owned by the owners of Rolls Royce and Bentley.

Kalypso Adventures was started here in 2000 by two former Indian Navy officers – Cdr. Thomas Zacharias and Cdr. Sam T Samuel.

Kalypso Adventures, Managing Director, Cdr. Samuel T Samuel, a former naval pilot, was excited to be contacted by a representative of St. James’s Publication house, London and was told that Kalypso Adventures has been shortlisted for feature inclusion in RREC  publication named “In Pursuit of Excellence”.

Cdr. Thomas Zacharias Executive Director quoted “This selection was done by the RREC, which was looking for a local experiential travel company from across the globe”.

He added “Over the last year or so, we were interviewed, data was collected and finally a two-page article was written about us that have been included in the RREC publication which has been launched on March 23, 2018 at the Goodwood House, Chichester, UK”.

The former naval officers had, after taking voluntary retirement from the Indian Navy, launched Kalypso Adventures and they were the first to introduce adventure tourism in Kerala at a time when adventure in India was restricted only to the Himalayas.
