If you love to take a break from routine to embrace nature, dive into the sea, gaze the sky or absorb the ancient magnificence, you are the epitome- Appooppanthaadi welcomes you to the world of exploration exclusively for women driven by wanderlust.
Appoopanthadi’s originated from an idea to satisfy the wanderlust of women with strong desire to go beyond the usual routine to explore the unexplored in groups rather than solo trips which throw security issues pertaining in the current circumstances. After the first solo trip of Sajna Ali, Founder of Appooppanthaadi started getting so many requests from her female friends to take them with her in next trip. After a year she planned their first trip with her to Rosemala, a picturesque place near Thenmala, Kollam District.
It all started with a solo trip of Sajna Ali, brain behind the concept of Appooppanthaadi to Orissa which might be considered as one of the greatest risk that a first time lady traveller can take owing to the events taking place all over the place consequent to which queries began to pop-up from all those women fenced with their own liabilities, responsibilities and commitment for an opportunity to join for future trips. Appooppanthaadi, as its name suggests provides you with an opportunity to join a group of other ladies from various backgrounds, a break to mingle, understand and flow freely with the air enjoying the beauty of mother earth.
What we do
Appooppanthaadi conducts budget trips to places all around India on weekends as most of the women are working and prefers weekend trips. Sajna also planning to expand trips to other places depending on the suggestion from fellow Appooppanthaadi’s. We plan trips considering the best time to visit, affordable accommodation and transportation as this is a platform to satisfy the thirst of ladies loving travel who are ready to adjust to all circumstances.
