It was 2015 when this south Indian boy saw a 6000M peak for the first time. It took him 1 year with an oil company, 1 year with a trekking agency, 3 months with a travel company and 1 year into tech start-ups to come back and start this adventure travel company.
Meanwhile, He did the mountaineering courses from HMI, Darjeeling and a wilderness first aid responder course from NOLS.Today he leads 1 high altitude trek and 1 adventure-based trip every month. It has not always been easy for this boy when parents used to ask him about the stability of such a career. Today he is a facilitator. He facilitates dreams, wildest of them. About 750 odd people have traveled/ trekked with him to different mountains in India and Nepal. He will be also leading trips to Vietnam, Bali, Kazakstan, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Philippines, and Russia in upcoming months.
But if you ask him what is the best thing about this career.
He would say :
It's not the places . It’s the people, hands down.
I spend days, sometimes more than a week, in an intense environment with happy and healthy people. It is an honour to regularly meet and bond with these amazing folks and exceed their expectations.
I don’t get paid because of my tour packages are unique, which they are anyway. I get paid to manage my people's expectations, motivations, fears, and desires.
SEE YOU SOON IN THE MOUNTAINS
