Usually, children are asked what they would like to do when they grow up. And they come up with random job names. However, in the case of Ravi Teja and Sai Teja, they had the same answer that they wanted to be travelers. While many kids forget what they wanted to be as children, Ravi Teja and Sai Teja have indeed become travelers. Together, they now run an adventure company.
Ravi (27) and Sai (24) nurtured their childhood dream and are now running a successful adventure sports company called Cliff-inn Adventure in Hyderabad. Sai says he wanted to travel, especially to the mountains. In fact, he is a trained mountaineer from Indian Himalayan Centre for Adventure and Eco-Tourism (IHCEA) in Gangtok. Being passionate about mountaineering, Sai worked under K Ranga Rao, the founder of Adventure Club in Hyderabad. Sai says he learned a lot from his mentor but felt the need to start something on his own.
Since they set up their company, the brothers have taken up nearly 100 treks to nearby hills and even the Himalayas. They also arrange smaller treks for families and corporates who want to spend time in nature. They arrange campsites near forest areas, so they can relax and get rejuvenated before returning home.
Ravi Teja says that while many people are interested in going on treks, they don’t have an idea of how to go about it. For this, the brothers have come up with a schedule for self-training, and in case someone is not sure, then they offer personal training too before the trek. They say they only use A-Grade equipment in unison.
For the uninitiated, Sai Teja trained Telukunta Virat Chandra, the eight-year-old from the city who was recently conferred with Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar.
