To the Summit and beyond

Late September last year, I ventured out to the highlands of Ladakh in Jammu & Kashmir. I made a journey from Delhi to Leh and back. The goal of the trip was to traverse some of the high Himalayan Mountains of India in the Ladakh region.


Tawang – A Himalayan Tryst

I sat there the whole time reflecting back on the time spent at this tiny Himalayan hamlet. It was probably the best break to the relentless travel I did over the few days

A Road Trip to Ldakh and back

A Road Trip to 18000 feet and back

Not always does a road trip of 3000 odd kilometers come around asking you to join and be a part of. Not always does it happen in the Indian Himalayas. But when you do get that call, you know you just pack your bags and leave. No questions asked. Especially when the road trip is going to take you to the “Highest Motorable Road in the World“. Yes! In double bold.


The Weekend Market Trail in Bangkok

The Weekend Market Trail in Bangkok

My quick trip to Thailand was coming to a close. This final leg would take me from Phuket to the capital of the country, Bangkok the “City of Angels”. I investigate the weekend market trail in Bangkok and get myself some serious souvenir shopping done. Bangkok is one of the (if not the most) most popular tourist destinations in Asia. I could see travelers and tourists pouring in big numbers at the airport and the city roads were bustling with traffic and high-rise buildings.


Gyap-Thago Homestay and heritage home

Gyap-Thago Homestay & Heritage Home

Homestays are the preferred choice of stay for backpackers in India. Homestays and small guest houses are a huge way of life for the locals in the Ladakh region. Anyone who has traveled this region would recommend a homestay to a hotel. This is where you can get close to the culture, warmth, and life of the land and socialize with the locals.


Beyond the Khardung La

Ladakh has now become one of the most sought after tourist destinations both by Indians and the international community. Access to this land of high passes is restricted for the most part of the year not by humans but by natural forces at work during the harsh winter months.
