    For my travel companion and me, a trip to Kashmir in June 2015 was about photography. The plan was to go around and take pictures of scenes that capture our eyes and minds. Kashmir’s beautiful landscape is an attraction enough for any enthusiastic photographer. In spite of having been a troubled...

    “Let me show you your rooms”, said our trek leader¹. I walked around the trekkers hut that evening in Jaubari with an inexplicably sinking feeling. The hut was nice and I was quite ready for the physical challenge of tackling a seven-day medium to difficult trek. It may have been tiredness from...

    My Infant Travelling to Ladakh Go Himalayan

    Who so ever said- “To each, his own” –was so right.  It all began as a very casual conversation with Sumit (husband;) about doing a road trip. Not just a leisure road trip, but more specifically a Road Trip to the Trans - Himalayas (LADAKH) along with a friend couple from CHD in their new SUV.

    Now,...

    A snow-trek: Parashar Lake Go Himalayan

    We did not have any target, even though Parashar Lake was the declared destination. We started at 9.30pm from Delhi and boarded our car - a Santro - at Panipat. We were five guys. I forced myself to take a nap at 3am. Then slept till 8am near an obscure Dhaba in the hills, before Bilaspur. Such was...

    Nagaland Memories Go Himalayan

    So I visited Nagaland finally – have been talking about it for many months with my Naga friends. Given my excitement at finally visiting a place I longed for, the trip was quite short – less than a week. It wasn’t enough to see all the places but it was enough to get a flavour of life and culture in...

    Three Women and a Desire: Exploring Uttarakhand Go Himalayan

    When I was a kid I would watch television channels like Discovery or National Geographic and pine to travel just like the way smart and adventurous travellers in these channels did. I used to ask my Dad whether I would get to travel widely in my life and he would reply ‘yes, definitely’. After I...

    The Sound of Silence Go Himalayan

    ‘My small piece of the sky and the sound of silence’ - the words were resonating within me while visiting Tirthan Valley for the third time in a year.
