Bir, Himachal Pradesh - My first abode in the Himalayas
Bir is a quaint little village in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh, nestled in the Dhauladhar Range of the Himalayas. I had serendipitously landed at Bir and made it my home for 3 months. After quitting my job in Pune, all I had asked for was fresh air to breathe, fresh water to drink and fresh food to eat. After all, it's not just the job that I wanted to quit, I also wanted to leave the cities for a better life. God exists!
I had found my “Nirvana Moments” in the mountains. I was addicted to the Himalayas. I always found reasons to run away to the Himalayas, even if it was just to catch a glimpse of snow-clad mountains on a weekend. The next thing for me was to experience living in the mountains, live like a local and not like a visitor.
Bir holds a special place in my heart as it was my first move to living in the Himalayas. It was my first experience of living amongst the nature and close to humanity. I had a paradigm shift in my lifestyle after I moved to Bir. In this post, I would show you all the sides of Bir that I observed, learnt and enjoyed.
Namaste! I'm Medhavi Davda.

In the Oceans, I meditate..
A High-Altitude Trekker & PADI certified SCUBA Diver, I love exploring the heights and depths of the planet with my regular doses of mountains and oceans.
Discovering myself & life through nature, adventures, travels, sports and dance has been an addiction since my existence!
Quite fond of the natural & cultural diversity of India, I've travelled extensively in my own country before exploring international destinations.
I had left my 9+ yrs of career in Software Industry in a quest to make a living out of my passions. I packed my basics in my car (gave away the rest) and lived in different parts of Himachal Pradesh for 16 months. This invaluable time taught me to experience life from a broader perspective.
I'm currently living in Mumbai to work with an Adventure Travel company as a product manager for Scuba Diving. I continue living a minimalistic life.
