Bangladesh, a middle income country in South East Asia, accommodates more than 170 million people. It has one of the most densely populated urban areas, with very few public spaces. The tourism industry is not prepared for the growing number of middle class with growing income. We wanted to break the conventional approach towards tourism (just be at a place and not do anything to extract the full experience from it). We wanted to create a unique experience blending tourism and learning together. We wanted to use the “lack of infrastructure of the country” to our advantage and provide unique experiences to people who wouldn’t have done so otherwise. It is an innovative approach, not from a global perspective may be but definitely in local context. Bangladesh is under exposed globally as tourist destinations but it has a lot of diversity in its terrain . If we can build the local tourism infrastructure in an organized way now, we can attract a huge pool of foreign tourists in our country. Our tourism model can be replicated to neighboring countries. We are also involving indigenous people in community tourism and engaging them in economic activities.
We have established country’s first camp ground along with on tree and on ground activities where city dwellers, both individuals and institutions, experience outdoor living, adventure and curriculum learning.
We have already engaged with two communities to build experiences around it. This sustainable business model identifies, empowers and packages unique features of that community, and makes the experience memorable for local and international tourists.
We are organizing events like walks, cycling trips and treks in different locations of the country, many of which have become regular phenomena already.
We have always challenged the status quo, in all our ventures and thus we have generated great results. Base Camp has been the first initiative of such kind in Bangladesh and has already attracted a lot of attention in the last 3 years. It is largely because of the unique experience we provide to every type of our clients.
Starting from one location near Dhaka, we have already expanded to two community tourism destinations for local and in-bound tourists in Tangail and Bandarbans under the initiative Thousand Miles Expeditions. We are also facilitating people to expeditions in Nepal, Bhutan, Mongolia and Kenya.
In 2013, we built country’s first camp ground that allowed city dwellers to experience outdoor living and adventure activities. Working with them made us passionate in creating meaningful experiences of life that creates a deeper connection with the self, community, culture and the nature.
We have already served more than 10000 adventure lovers and have 2 hundred thousand followers in social media and we take pride in keeping active relationship with them. Any assistance would help us leap frog towards our vision we are pursuing.
The founders are all entrepreneurs from diverse industries including market communication, information technology and FMCG. Travelling and adventure connected us to this venture. We are supported by a pool of exciting youths who enthusiastically align themselves with our vision and dash towards achieving great results.
