Tirthan Valley, a hidden gem in Himachal Pradesh, is what I call my home in the Himalayas. Once I started traveling extensively and got addicted to the Himalayas, I consciously kept away from Himachal Pradesh, because I needed my own sweet time to explore Himachal Pradesh, the second most beautiful state in India after Kashmir. Little did I know then that I would be blessed enough to get to spend an entire year in Himachal Pradesh. After I quit my job, I donated most of my belongings, packed only what I needed and drove all the way to Himachal Pradesh from Pune. I am living a completely nomadic life in different parts of Himachal Pradesh since then. Bir in Himachal Pradesh was my first abode in the Himalayas. Thereafter I backpacked in Spiti and Kinnaur. I then planned to spend a month in Tirthan Valley in winters, hoping to write more blogs as the ruthless winters of Himalayas would keep me indoors.
Tirthan Valley, Himachal Pradesh - my home in the Himalayas
The beauty of Tirthan Valley had blown me away since the day I landed. It is a quaint little valley in the lower Himalayas of Kullu district. The more I explored Tirthan, the more I realised that this is the place I had been looking for all this while, a place which I could call my home in the Himalayas.
The valley is a collection of small hamlets along the road and the ones beautifully perched on mountains on both the sides.
Namaste! I'm Medhavi Davda.

In Nature, I confide..

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.
