Who is Danish Nabi?
A 30 year old traveller, Danish is a resident of the Bandipora district in J&K and a government employee posted at the mini-secretariat in Bandipora by profession. He found a gap in Kashmir tourism in his twenties, were people were visiting only popular locations like Gulmarg, Pahalgam, Sonmarg and Dal Lake, while completely forgetting the real adventure tourism of Kashmir which is up in the mountains and used to draw adventure seekers from across Europe from the late eighties.
His love for mountains and exploring new locations has bore fruit and the Bandipora district administration has made him an advisor to promote adventure tourism and a few locales, including Daetwas, Sheerasar, and Nagmarg routes were prepared by the Forest department for trekking.
Last year Danish became the first person in India and across the globe to scale Razdaan Top (11672 feet) on a bicycle.
He said he is in love with the mountains and explores new locations to promote adventure tourism in Kashmir, besides fulfilling his desire to scale mountain tops.
