I started trekking since 2012 and fell in love with the Himalayas ever since. I have done many treks, participated in mountaineering expeditions and also led some expeditions beyond 6000 meters.

But the Himalayas are so vast and beautiful that any amount of trekking, climbing or exploration is never enough and that's the best part. The more mountains I see, the humbler I become. Roaming in the Himalayas is not entertainment for me. It nourishes and enriches my soul. Now it is something I can't live without.

In 2017, I decided to make it my profession coming from an IT background and joined Himalayan High as a Co-Owner along with Suman Chowdhury, the founder of Himalayan High. This has been a pretty amazing journey so far. I'm just grateful for how I got an opportunity to turn my interest into my profession.

I hope to be able to trek, climb and explore the Himalayas a lot more and I want to keep sharing my experiences throughout this journey.
