I was born in Ladakh in the village of Thiksay which is 20 km from Leh. I was brought up in the rich cultural life of Ladakhi Budhist society. My family is closely connected with agriculture and farming was an essential part of my early life. After I left school I worked for three years as a Trekking assistant for some of the experienced guides. In 1995-1996 I did Basic and Advanced Mountaineering Courses at the Nehru Institute of Mountaineering sponsored by Indian Mountaineering Foundation. After that I worked as Mountain Guide within Ladakh Later I got the chance to lead cultural, trekking and climbing groups in the Indian Himalaya in Ladakh, Sikkim, Darjeeling and Himachal Pradesh with some of the leading Adventure companies such as Welcome Travel India, Exodus Travel UK, DAV Summit Club Germany, Himalayan Fair Trek Germany, Canadian Himalayan Expedition and High Place UK etc. After gaining experience over nearly 15 years, I decided in April 2010 to set up my own company based in Ladakh..Since then we have served a large number of both domestic and international clients. Most of the guides in my organization have been trained personally by me during the 15 years before I started Venture Ladakh
