We’ll spend a night tucked away on a hilltop overlooking the river island, later that night we lie down and do some star gazing.

I’m 27 years old. In my former life before Camping Co, I was a working professional with an undergraduate degree in Math and a postgraduate in MBA. It’s a ridiculous combination. I assumed myself to be left-brained only to realize it’s a loose theorem which can’t be proven. I’m a sucker for moon rises and sunsets, you’ll always find me gasping with amazement at these times. I also believe nature is my biggest inspiration and teacher. I aspire to make people connect with nature after all only homo sapiens are charged with enormous responsibilities of protecting the ecosystem around us.
I’m an adventurer dedicated to all mountains and sea, an expert mountain biker and an intermediate kayaker I’ve always been an outdoorsy guy! I’m 28 years old and in my former life I was responsible for introducing Uber’s services in India and was hired to set up India operations. I aspire to bring a balance into modern life taking the time to rest and unplug from the daily hustle and to focus on ourselves, our relationships, and the wonder of nature.
