Garbett Plateau is one of the most scenic treks in all of Maharashtra. Although it is situated close to Matheran, it has still survived commercialization. Escape the city and head into the serenity of the hills as we walk along the Dhom lake under the moonlit sky and tread through rustic villages in the dead of the night. The beauty of the winter skies is seen only at night making the view from the top simply spectacular! So grab your torches, lace up those shoes, and follow us #IntoTheWild!

Vagabond started out as a project by four friends with a disdain for the ordinary. The idea was simple; take people out of their comfort zones. Not like Roadies, but just enough to bond them together through beautiful and authentic experiences. Happiness, as they say, is only real when shared. And share we did. The company was founded in 2014. As fresh Bachelor of Arts degree holders, companies were lining up to hire us fine gentlemen; we’re kidding. Fueled by entrepreneurial zeal, we started with small events in the city like heritage walks through Bombay’s old quarters. As musicians and travellers ourselves, we decided to marry these two loves of our lives. That is how the idea for the first Fields of Sound™ came about. Since then, it has only been onward and upwards for us. Since 2014, we’ve made friends like family through our journey. Our little ‘Vaga’-Fam. It’s safe to say, it’s been quite an adventure. One we would like you to join :)
