About Me


If there is a jack of all adventure courses, then it has to be Mr R.S. Pal. While other office personnel sit inside their drab cubicles in front of screens, Mr R.S Pal’s office is the outdoors. Mountaineering, rock climbing, parasailing, river rafting and skiing-, Mr Pal has done it all. From terra firma to the sky to the water, Mr R.S Pal holds a unique experience of almost 29 years of adventure.
