Trek Expert

Why Me?

Before I tell you, Why Me, let me introduce myself.

I am from Mumbai, India and my story began in 2000 when by chance I was pulled by friends on a trek to Bhimashankar, in Maharashtra, on the pretext of going for a picnic which actually was a trek which we did over 2 days.

This trek sowed the seeds of adventure and trekking in me whihc got a major boost in 2007 when I trekked first time in Ladakh, India. Since then I have trekked regularly in the Himalayas and closer home in the Sahyadri mountains of Maharashtra.

I have done 150+ treks in the Sahyadris and the Himalayas. I have my own personal trekking blog at www.trekwithnazir.com.

I am sharing most of my trek experiences in the blog to encourage understanding about trekking and inspiring more and more people to fall in love with the mountains.

I have done most of my treks with local organizers from the region. For e.g I have done the following five treks with Altitude Adventure

  1. Stok La (2007)
  2. Lamayuru to Chilling (2009)
  3. MarkhaValley (2011)
  4. Stok Kangri (2017) and
  5. Chadar Trek (2018)

Altitude Adventure India has a wonderful team of locals in the Ladakh region who can organize and deliver a fantastic trek experience.

But trekkers (especially beginners) require proper guidance even before the trek has begun. They need guidance on:

  • Physical fitness preparation
  • Selection/ Purchase of the right gears and accessories
  • Dealing with Altitude Sickness
  • Travel arrangements

Trekkers also need to be updated regularly about the trail conditions, weather, and safety.

Being a trekker myself, I have faced these challenges and learned the hard way.

Based on my 17 years of trekking experience and having trekked with them many times, I intend to help Altitude Adventure deliver a professional trek experience to trekkers.

As a trekking expert, I intend to bridge the gaps by sharing my knowledge with new trekkers.

I hope with my guidance I am able to enhance the overall quality of your trek experience.
