Who We Are

Pushpa Sumityal

Homestay Owner and Guide

Pushpa was born to a shepherd's family that once travelled with their herd across almost all the high altitude alpine meadows across Uttarakhand. A quiet woman with a warm smile, Pushpa comes into her own when working as a high altitude and culture guide. She is happiest when she is out in nature and will sometimes confide that had she been a man, she would have wandered the high mountains with her father. She lives in Sarmoli with her family and runs a Home Stay with Himalayan Ark.
