Overview
More
I was born in Mount Abu and my parents were originally farmers in a small local village called Karoti. I have always had a great love for the unique ranges surrounding Mt Abu and have been hiking in this area since childhood. I have been leading treks around Mount Abu for the 16 years. I feel very fortunate that I have been able to create a business out of what I am so passionate about - educating visitors to Mt Abu and helping to protect the rare animals and plants of the Aravalli mountain range. If you come to visit I will take the utmost care to ensure you have a memorable experience.
