Message From CEO
in Sikkim, grew up playing with nature and butterflies.
After graduation I joined a as a Geography teacher in a
remote village called Yuksam-which is also the first
capital of Sikkim during 1641 AD. My interest in nature
conservation and adventure tempted me to explore places
and I decided to establish an adventure and leisure
travel company in 1991. This company named Yak and Yeti
Travels reflects the message of Himalayan people and its
culture and lives on sharing the joy of exploration and
our lasting happiness in conservation of our natural
resources through the sustainable tourism in Sikkim.
Support sustainable tourism to help our local economy
grow through tourism, help each other to learn and grow
in a friendly and joyful manner is what I learned in my
later years, also learned to help governmental policies
for sustainable tourism growth and polish them through
our experience and expertise. But to my priority
learning it was to ensure maximum comfort and safety to
our guest with available amenities and circumstances. In
a nutshell…not to compete each other but to learn and
share the experience from each other and to introduce
Sikkim to the outside world by sharing and offering our
rich cultural heritage, our way of life and simplicity
of our thinking but not compromising with our service
quality, guest comfort, environmental damage and our
inability to handle the risk factor as an when it may
Our action is oriented towards the International
Understanding in mankind and global friendship through
tourism and help bring peace to the world through a
common understanding of our nature and culture of the
Earth- the planet most of us have taken it for granted
for being living and blessing planet. Its blessing
because we all care for it, it dramatic because we all
are indisputable part it, its beautiful because like us
you care for it. We all share one home –the Earth- (the
only living planet-which gives us life in different
dimensions)- and the differences in our language, our
custom, our tradition, our way of life and our thoughts
and our technology is re-put to our Montessori times
with the immortal magic of the Himalayas. Our Nature,
Culture and Adventure will always live on with our sense
of discovery, curiosity, analysis and judgment of
adventure in ourselves.
This very feeling and inquisitiveness and sense of
discovery in our team has helped us to meet different
people from different parts of the world and the people
we work with and with the people we meet in our
organization is our “KARMA”. – (Basically explained in
connection to the conduct of our former lives).
Our team has committed to be a part of your past and
your present in global understanding of making but will
you be having time to be a part of us is a bigger
