Paddy & his wife Daniela

Paddy, an ex-cavalry officer, is the eldest son of the late Raja of Sheikhupura. He studied in one of British India's finest public schools - Bishop Cotton, in Simla, which was his home town. After retiring from the army he did a couple of years with the Border Police on the Himachal Indo-Tibet border, and became very familiar with trekking routes, now open, but which were then closed to foreigners, before joining the State Tourism Dept. He was the Tourist officer at Manali for 6 years. He later worked for a number of years with West Himalayan Holidays, one of the first professional trekking agencies from the UK. With them he led a number of treks each year, till they closed down, and then started his own company.

One of the agents he handled, were the Ramblers of UK and conducted their very successful walking holidays in the Himalayas, till unfortunate floods in the Kulu Valley put a halt to their operations there. While his porters are still based in Manali, he still accompanies and leads many treks in the lower and greater Himalayas. His major business comes from the UK, and Europe

Paddy’s Treks operates Adventure Holidays throughout the Himalayas, be it trekking or just walking tours. Other walking holidays are organised in Rajasthan and the Nilgris in the South.
