Sakshi first came as a tripper with This Guy in May 2016, to Meghalaya.
And everyone in the group instantly took a liking to her! What was striking about her right from the beginning, was how effortlessly she could make anyone around her feel comfortable. People who have travelled with her will vouch for the fact that no one makes friends faster than Sakshi Pant 🙂
Over time, Sakshi returned for trips with This Guy to Tawang and Kashmir, all in winters, and endeared more and more people to herself!
A pahaadi, the pahaads seem to be running in her blood and she can go up a mountain like a goat, as fast as anyone can!
As a brand, some of the values that are most important to us are love for nature, affection towards animals and sensitivity towards all, and Sakshi embodies all these qualities.
Sakshi loves dancing and eating food (especially from her friends’ plates). She wants to do a certification in Scuba Diving, and we are trying to convince her to learn swimming before she gets too adventurous in the sea. Her bucket-list includes doing a long road trip in Scandinavia, so don’t be too surprised if you see her one day dancing in a busy street in Sweden and making startled Swedes groove with her to some Bollywood music.
After getting much love and affection from her co-trippers, Sakshi joined the This Guy family, in June’18 as the first girl trip leader on the team and so far she has led trips to Kerala, Kasol, Dharamsala, Bunbuni trek, Bir, Tirthan, Bhutan, Spiti, Ladakh, Sikkim, Meghalya, Kashmir, Nag Tibba trek, Chandrashila trek, Dayara Bugyal tre, Pangot, Bhrigu Lake trek, Sri Lanka and Bali.
From a desk job in IT, Sakshi has taken to trip leading like a fish to water and in her own words ” I never thought I’d be a trip leader, but now that I am one, I have never been happier or more content. It has been almost three years since I left my job and started leading trips, and I cannot imagine doing any other thing right now.”
