He has led heritage walking tours in Calcutta (now Kolkata), worked as a tour leader with a multi-national adventure travel company having the privilege to lead diverse groups across both India and Nepal. This also provided him with the opportunity to visit and work in Canada.
Never one to rest easy, Prasenjit wanted to combine his love of travel with his passion for motorcycles. This lead him to work as a road captain in the Ladakh valley for one of the best motorcycle tour companies in India. Through these companies, he has had the joy and privilege to work with some of the finest people and companies related to this amazing industry.
Wishing to draw people to the love of his life, the north-east of India and with the knowledge of his experience he started Six Degree Adventures.
