Who doesn’t like to work in the mountains? Who doesn’t want to work for the mountains? Everybody does, right? But are they all aware of the responsibilities associated with this? Are they all fit enough to perform the required tasks to justify their role in the mountains? Sadly, the answer is “no.”.

In the past few years, youngsters getting inspired by Bollywood and Hollywood movies look at the Himalayas as a place to escape from their boring corporate lives and as a place to have fun without worrying about anything. Such misconceptions have caused great harm to Mother Nature and the Himalayas. Tons of plastic have been deposited in such sacred mountains. Apart from these, there are a number of nuisances that they have brought to the mountains by irresponsible trekkers, trek leaders, and money-hungry trek organizers.


At the same time, there are a few humble travelers and trekkers who hold a strong belief in their hearts that the Himalaya is a living entity, and as the children of Mother Nature, it is our responsibility to live in harmony with all the aspects of Mother Nature. It delights our hearts when we find someone who shares the same belief. In all our new recruits, want to have this quality in them if they are willing to join Himalaya Shelter.

Moreover, all the designations mentioned below require different skills. We want all our teammates to perform their tasks with the utmost care and mastery.
