What I do
I have lived in the Kullu Valley all of my life and know the region quite well. An Indian Skiing Champion when I was younger, I have also competed for India on an international level. I have been guiding all over the Indian Himalaya for over two decades. I have worked with groups from all over the world and still compete in Nordic skiing.
How I do it
I went on to complete all of the Indian Mountaineering Federation courses and born in the Adventure Capital of Himalayas, I’ve been exposed to every possible adventure since childhood and hence it’s nothing but a routine for someone like me.
Hence “People call it adventure, I call it routine.”
Where I live
An amorphous jumble of traditional timber houses and modern concrete cubes, divided by paved courtyards and narrow muddy lanes, It is the epicentre of the local budget travellers’ scene, with a good choice of guesthouses and cafés..
Famous for its sweeping valley views and sulphurous hot-water springs, the ever-expanding village of Vashisht, 2.5km northeast of Manali is where I’ve been living with my family for generations.
