roots – Chhattisgarh

Located in the belly of the country, we are delighted to be continually inspired by our roots – Chhattisgarh. This is one of the oldest tribal enclaves in India and a region that is blessed with natural treasures and flourishing traditions and culture. Having travelled extensively in the state since our early years, we were always lucky to be awarded with deep local experiences, exposure to untreaded trails and insights from the local tribals of the land. To us, this tenor of travel defined and sharpened our own taste in destinations.  It was this feeling of conscious travel, of looking beyond the obvious, that we wanted to share with our clients.

Over the last decade, we have travelled to different parts of the country and around the globe, to get acquainted with experiences that are not part of every itinerary. We offer unexpected experiences in the most legged of places. It could be the most feted streets of London, the indispensable ‘Golden Triangle’ of India, highly featured backwaters of Kerala, most photographed places of Thailand or shack lined beaches of Goa – we infuse your itinerary with ‘something more’ for the mind and the heart, to make indelible memories.

JASPREET BHATIA

Having grown up in Chhattisgarh and travelled widely in the state for many years left Jaspreet with the insurmountable passion to showcase this enchanting state to the discerning traveller – those who would appreciate looking at it with his gaze. This was further fortified with his career with the Tourism Board of Chhattisgarh as a member of the founding team and branding the state as a veritable destination. He helped in developing a robust travel trade infrastructure, tourism products with a relevant appeal and launching Chhattisgarh as an enchanting destination to the world. This was certainly not done without meticulous on-ground explorations, research and connections with experts who knew the place like the back of their hands. He has personally travelled in the deep interiors of the state, building a relationship with the locals and designing extremely well crafted trips.

His passion for travel is not limited to Chhattisgarh alone. Jaspreet has scoured the length and breadth of the country to ensure that he has resilient bonds with the infrastructure network and can offer the traveller a trip with unique insights and personalized hospitality. Naturally, the passion also spurred his travels abroad, making him knowledgeable with first –hand information to help outbound travellers with the best trips possible.

Jaspreet believes that his fraternity needs to look beyond packages and have an insatiable appetite to discover new places and help showcase them sensitively and sensibly to travellers. Ice Cube’s business is built on this ethos.

Team Ice Cubes

The Ice Cubes team was set up in 2011 with professionals who resonated Jaspreet’s passion and understood that they could add value to the travellers in an inimitable way. Meet the core members; you’re likely to be in touch with them when you plan:

Specialists

Awesh Ali – Born and raised in Bastar, Chhattisgarh, Awesh knows the thickest of jungles of the region at the back of his hand. His familiarity with the villages and their inhabitants is immediately corroborated when his ‘Jowar Siyaan’ (greetings) is reciprocated with toothless smiles and showers of blessings. We work closely with Awesh in Bastar, as he is not only insightful about the destination, but also works tirelessly to bring awareness amongst visitors on not exposing it to the relentless march of development.

Amit – Finding an un-stepped place in Agra and Fatehpur Sikri is unimaginable. But not when you’re in the company of Amit who knows the most charming people of the city and nooks & corners that seemingly appear out of thin air. From the latest ‘going ons’ in the Shoe Bazaar of the city to the best unexpected spots to get a glimpse of the Taj Mahal, Amit’s company makes a trip to the city unforgettable.
