He is the explorer-Varun Vagish- Mountain Trekker

He is Varun Vagish, a traveller and YouTuber. He is an Indian. He has set an example that you don’t need a volume of money in your pockets to travel the world.

How did his journey start?

He was born in Delhi. He lived in Narora before moving to Tarapur and Mumbai, Maharashtra. He later moved to Hyderabad in 1988 and moved to Rawatbhata in Kota (Rajasthan) in 1990. Now he lives in Asansol West Bengal since 2011. He is a graduate in mass communication. He quit his job so that he can focus on what he loves. He travelled all over India and now he is on his journey to explore the whole world.

Varun Vagish once said,
“There are so many travel-based YouTube channels in English, but rarely any in Hindi. Why is that so? What about the viewers who prefer Hindi over English? No sooner did I realize this, I knew I had to do something and this led to the beginning of Mountain Trekker”.
