monks in Assam
The Swiss travel enthusiast Bea Dolder came to India in 2005,
because she wanted to learn to be mahout. Instead of wandering
with elephants through the jungle, she got stuck in Mumbai and worked here and in Delhi for various local and international Companies as well as for the Swiss Consulate General in Mumbai.

She adopted Franklin, an Indian boy whom she facilitated education. The both are sharing a great passion for outdoors and adventures. Bea loves to travel through different parts of India, meet locals, taste the local curries and masalas, and occasionally stands on her head.
