MHE Adventure Holidays and Mercury Travels

Bull's Retreat is the initiative of MHE Adventure Holidays - one of the pioneers of adventure travel in India that set up base in 1982 and is a partner of Mercury Travels - a leading travel agency. Until 2010 the resort, where it stands today, was MHE's "jungle camp" for the lovers of white water rafting in Rishikesh, and also its base camp for all other adventure activities in the Uttarakhand region. Today of course, Bull's Retreat is a 14-room resort that welcomes pilgrims and thrill-seekers alike, with a heart that continues to beat for adventure!

"India's most decorated soldier"; "The Colonel who got us Siachen", "soldier-explorer-mountaineer-adventurer". Bull Kumar goes by so many descriptions, it's hard to pin him down! The "Bull" moniker comes from his cadet days - a nod to his fierce resolve, tenacity and muscular build. And it has stayed with him ever since. Bull's Retreat is his home away from home, his sanctuary and haven and he's happy to share it with the rest of the world!
