About Me


To enjoy Manali to its fullest while meeting beautiful people around the world and of course to help them as much as I can.


I am a friendly, caring, helpful guy. I love to host people and show them around the town I love so much. Whether its exploring the country side, heading into the mountains or getting the best masala tea and samosas in town, I'm up for it. I have plenty of free time to kick back and enjoy Manali.

I normally live in a small village just outside of Khajuraho, on my family's farm. Ours is a simple but happy family: my mother and father, my brother and his wife, two other brothers and I. We have several animals: water buffalo, goats, cows, a couple cats and some dogs ( at the time of this writing, one of our dogs just gave birth to a litter of 6 puppies). We have fields of wheat and mixed sow and mustard. You can discover many native plants - plants used to make local dyes, balance the soil, feed the body and spirit. There is even a tree (mulhwa), that has so many life sustaining properties. (I am sure that there is a botanist out there who would be interested to see just how many different - yet undiscovered - products this tree might provide.)

I spend summers in my familys house in Manali. It is the best place to spend the summers in India. Join me here for trekking.
Come and wander into our quiet world, find a secluded spot and sit - let the hours pass by in traquility. In India?, you ask. Yes, on our place.


Let the energy of the universe bring us love, respect, and harmony.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I look forward to hosting people from around the world. I like having people come and enjoy Manali. I know the place very well and I can guide you anywhere you want to go.


I have little official couchsurfing experience but I have hosted countless travelers in my homestead farm houses and in Manali.


Hiking, exploring, fishing, cooking, consciousnesses, enjoying nature, good food, good friends, and good 420.

India Connection....

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watching the crocodiles in the river near my home. Actually, I have seen some pretty crazy stuff in my travels throughout India.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have much to share and more to learn. I would simply like to share my world, the people, and this place I love so much with those around the world. In return, I would love to see how you see the world as well. We both learn and grow.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A room that you can stay in, guidance all around Manali, some stuff that you cannot find easily and my unconditional love.
