Subhajit Das (aka Bonie): Founder
As Bonie fondly recalls, his love for the mountains started at a very early age when his father took him to Gangtok when he was just five years old. Waking up each morning and witnessing the mighty Mt. Kanchenjunga from the window of his wooden cottage filled his heart with joy and wonder.
After completing his Bachelors in Journalism, he worked with some of the biggest media houses in India but his love for travel kept bringing him back to the mountains. He want to study the nuances of the travel industry more intricately, thus he left his job and pursued MBA in international tourism business under Ministry of Tourism, India.
A fernweh in a true sense, he wanted to share the joy of travelling with fellow travellers and adventure enthusiast, thus came the concept of forming Eastern Caravan.
