Saurabh and I did a 3 days camping trip to Daraya Bugyal. He was very good with all the arrangements like Camping Permit, Arranging Food, Camping gear etc. We both had a fantastic time together and he has really taken a good care of me. He is a very skilled guide and knows his technique. His knowledge of the Uttarakhand and mountains, in general, is really good. Already planning a new adventure with him in 2020.
2015: Gangotri 3
2017: Bhagirathi 2
He is one of the new generation of sherpas (mountain guides) in the gangotri valley. He is a very industrious guy in high altitude, which is a trade mark of a high class climber. He is one of those guides whose passion is climbing, he does it not just for money shake but also for the love and thrill out of it. What makes him unique is his genuine caring and humble nature. He "likes" to take care of clients, which is a rare quality. Having climbed with him multiple times, he is definitely one of the strongest guy, with a very good mountain sense, i have met during expeditions. On top of that he is improving every year.
