Owner & Host

Hello!! I am Kaushal and I am a mountain guide. I live in Manali. I am also the founder and owner of Above14000ft, a camping, trekking, climbing, cycling, skiing and paragliding company based in Manali. I have operated small group custom trips all over Himachal, Ladakh and Uttarakhand for the last 19 years. I also pursue all the above activities also for personal pleasure 🙂

 

My wife Meera is currently on a break from her work to spend her full time with our 1.5 yr old daughter Mirka. She is also an awesome cook. The other girls in my life are Maggiee and Biki (my doggies :)). We spend most of our time in Manali but are usually in Dharamshala in winters.

 

We are both Travel bums and love to go to new places, experience new cultures and meet new people.

 

One of my favourite quotes is by Mark Twain :

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
