Medhavi Davda was 16 when she had her first encounter with the mighty Himalayas. She was on a high-altitude trek and it was love at first sight for her. There was no stopping this adventurer after. Along with a demanding job as a software engineer with big names such as TCS, Infosys and IBM, she also took up solo backpacking and high-altitude trekking. She developed what she terms as an 'aquaddiction', so she got herself an advanced adventure certification as a scuba diver and explored the underwater life in Lakshadweep, Havelock Island, Gili Trawangan, Vietnam and Cambodia.
Trekking gave her the most pleasure and she would look for excuses to see the snow-clad mountains and traverse their terrains. Medhavi went on to do the Roopkund Trek, Chadar Trek, Kashmir Great Lakes trek, a solo trek to Markha Valley, Stok Kangri, Auden’s Col, Kalindi Khal, Garuda Peak and Everest Base Camp treks. Being this close with nature gave her a new perspective on life. She grew more and more disillusioned with modern materialism and the desire to acquire shiny things.
