About Us - The Legend Inn

It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys.

Alongside scaling many mountains, Captain Kohli as he is fondly referred to by all members at the hotel, joined the Indian Navy, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police where he lead several susceptible assignments for national security. He successfully leads an expedition to climb MOUNT EVEREST in 1965, which stood as one of the biggest achievements of our country after independence. Having been highly acknowledged as a National marvel in 1965, there was only moving forward with greater gusto for Captain Kohli.

The Legend Inn  Capt. Kohli

He was the first man to initiate "Trekking in the Himalayas”, soon after joining Air India in the 1970s. 

Knowing the importance of natural topography, he garnered the support of mountaineering legends including Sir Edmund Hilary, Maurice Herzog and many others to save the Himalayas for the present and future generations. For this purpose, he established the Himalayan Environment Trust (HET) in 1989.

His hotels are not only an epitome of service and hospitality but also warmth and motivation!
