About Me


Enjoy the little things in Life.Thats what counts in the End.


i live in a village in Mon district of Nagaland, Northeast India. I belong to the Konyak tribe,famous for its facial tattoos and it's head hunting history. I live in a farmhouse in the middle of our tea plantation with a beautiful sunset view,lots of flowers and fruit trees surrounding it.. I love travelling and also hosting and meeting likeminded people. Im an open,warm and honest person. I love trekking, camping and spending as much time as i can outdoors. Mountains are the love of my life. im active in trying to turn our tea estate organic, planting more and more trees/plants and conserving it.


At the end of the day,,everyone`s the same no matter what race,age and sex you are.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By trying out new ideas,letting others know about my people and tribal culture and way of life and also life in the village.And learning so many new things about their culture and lifestyle from other fellow CSers.


For me CS is not about saving money or having a free place to stay.Its about meeting people with different cultures,ideas,lifestyle and learning and sharing.Through CS i`ve met people and made friends for life.I absolutely love it,meeting so many like minded people,hosting them,staying with them.


Travelling,Trekking,Walking in the woods,Mountains,The Himalayas,China and everything about it and going back to Nepal over and over again to trek.
