Who Am I?
I grew up in Bikaner, Rajasthan (the best city ever) where everyone talks only about their business and food. But the one thing that Bikaner city lacks is the love for technology. So just to find and meet other tech afficionados, I came to Bangalore. Here, I started working on my own startup. But things didn’t go as planned. So just to have new and varied experiences, I joined Bangalore Adventure School (BASCool). I did my first ever adventure trip (Canyoneering) to Nagalapuram with BASCool. And from that day onward, I fell in love with Canyoneering. After that, I went to many other canyon trips with them. I also became a part of the BASCool team in exploring few canyons. I have also completed the Wilderness Trekking Course (WTC) with BASCool.
In future, I hope to explore many more canyons. What I like about Canyoneering is that it involves problem solving and is unlike any other adventure sport because it is a combination of multiple sports. Thank me later when you rappell down one of those gorgeous waterfalls. That experience is like no other!
