Why Travel With Us?

We’re the friends of the Earth.

Nelda is a registered tree plantation NGO in Pune founded in 2016 with a belief and intention to spread the message about the environment in the society. Started by Vedarth Deshpande as the first member, Nelda was founded with Shubham Ghule, Rohan Agawane and Sagar Bhagirath on 26th June, 2016. We do not believe in sitting idle, complaining, criticizing the system, or just posting on the internet about how wrong things are. We want to make this world greener than how we found it by helping people plant a billion trees by 2041.

Nelda is primarily a ‘young’ group, as most of the volunteers are under 30. And that’s what helps us do things even more passionately. We can help you conduct your tree plantation drive anywhere in Pune, and even plant trees on your behalf.

So, are you looking for a fun and exciting way to support the environment around you? If you’re an adventure seeker and want to add some meaning to your passion, make your next trek a fundraiser for the cause you love with ‘Nelda Treks for a Cause’.

We started ‘Nelda Treks’ as your trusted trekking group in Pune in 2019 to help the environment around the forts of Maharashtra. We arrange treks to the forts of Maharashtra, where we not only have fun but also clean up the plastics and plant saplings. We visit forts to collect waste that has been carelessly dumped within the fort and along the pathways leading up to the fort. The waste is collected in the bins and sent for recycling.

We arrange treks to the forts in Maharashtra in order to create awareness among the citizens. We wish more and more groups of motivated individuals should adopt certain forts and their surroundings for conservation.
We invite you in our quest to be a trekking company in Pune that actually cares for nature. Your support and love are what keep us going!

I am volunteering with Nelda since last 6 months and its been a fulfilling journey. Nelda’s commitment towards protecting nature is commendable. Dreaming to plant billion trees till 2041, Nelda is moving towards it consistently. Kudos to Jeet and Shubham who are driving Nelda’s activities every weekend. I wish best luck to Nelda and thanks for making my weekends meaningful.

Planting trees is just a small step. Nurturing and conserving them is the difficult part – kudos to Nelda and its dedicated team Shubham, Jeet and others for sweating out each Sunday. Happy to play a small role in their venture this Sunday.
