Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.

My thoughts on meaningful life, made me discover and find new passions. It’s not the destination that matters but the journey. The body is merely a vehicle to transport our minds to where we want to go.................

Lord Byron wrote;
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;
There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

Climbing is probably not my real passion. My passion revolves around spirituality, kindness, love and triumph over adversity – I feel I am only able to express myself by doing physical acts that test my mental capacity and challenge all the traditional boundaries that humans have bestowed upon ourselves. I need to challenge my mind to be courageous and believe that I can do more. This can be physical, emotional, or intellectual. I just so happen to only be able to express myself by challenging my mind to take my body to places I am told not to go...


My roots are from lauhal, but presently im been residing in Manali. I persuaded My graduation from Kullu college,and meanwhile I came across Mountaineering Institute Manali and got my certified diploma in basic,advance,and Method of Instruction in Mountaineering.
