Another rant against tourists

I wrote this post last year while writing the Kinnaur Lahaul Spiti travelogue and  forgot to post it. While traveling one has the chance to met a number of different types of people. Some of these interactions are enjoyable, informative and memorable but a few stay in memory for somewhat wrong reasons. I have had […]

Kinnaur Lahaul Spiti Trip 2017: Trek from Chandrataal to Surajtaal

I had almost forgotten to finish this travelogue just like my previous one. Which reminds me that I should work on that one too once this is finished. No other excuse other than just being lazy and a bit too much of work. Previous post of this series. Anyhow, my plan was to stay in […]

A short trip to Keoldeo National Park, Bharatpur

This post is just a bunch of pictures I took during a short trip to Keoldeo National Park, Bharatpur. Most people just call it Bharatpur bird sanctuary. It is not a big place but apparently it had a lot of wildlife including leopards which have disappeared from the park. British and their slave rajas did a […]

Kinnaur Lahaul Spiti Trip 2017: Nako, Kibber and Gete

Next morning started with a trip to Nako. I had little interest in the place but thought might as well see it while in the vicinity. A woman requested her to drop her grandson to the village school, so that was another reason. Strangely, the children learn Hindi and English, but no local language in […]

Kinnaur Lahaul Spiti Trip 2017: Ropa Valley and Leo

We intended to leave by 6:30 am, but started the drive only by 7 am. This path was a bit more “adventurous” and had quite a few interesting sights. We saw very few other vehicles on the road. We made a rest stop at Reckong Peo for lunch. It had a great view of Panch […]

Kinnaur Lahaul Spiti Trip 2017: Sarahan and Chitkul

I took the overnight Himachal Tourism’s Delhi-Shimla Volvo bus and reached Shimla early morning. My driver VK with his Toyota Innova met me at around 8 am and we managed to get out of the city just before the morning rush started. Few km after Theog, we stopped in a small roadside dhaba for a […]

Kinnaur Lahaul Spiti Trip 2017: Introduction

This series of posts is a travelogue of my recent vacation covering Kinnaur, Spiti, Lahaul and Manali in 16 days. It was a solo trip for most part and involved travel on road, camping, trekking and just lazing around on different days. My previous trip to this region was in 2015 in which I planned […]

Rishikesh Chakrata Trip 2017

The general idea of this trip was to spend some time relaxing around in Rishikesh and then travel to some small town or village up in the mountains for some more time.Weather in Rishikesh was not that hot after the pre-monsoon rains started, So even if we had to stay in Rishikesh only, we were […]
