Nitya Kannan

Nitya Kannan, ACB, CL, a member of NTI Advanced Toastmasters in Muscat, Oman, poses at Khardung La, one of the highest motorable passes in the world. It is located in the Ladakh region of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. Every year she and her family travel to a new place. On this trip, they acclimatized for a day before driving up the mountain. β€œComing to Khardung La Pass is a very thrilling feeling. We could see the snowy Himalayan peaks and Karakoram mountain ranges,” she says. β€œIt is an experience of a lifetime to visit this amazing point.”
