Scotland of India: Uddappana Motte trek

2016 kick started with a trek and as the year progressed, it became more of travel and less of mountains. Also after being forced to rest for months, I was elevated when I found myself at Coorg not only back on my feet but ready to trek. It was even more wonderful as I was…

THIMPHU:Let that shit go!

After our trek to the eye pleasing  Tiger’s Nest our next stop was to Bhutan’s capital Thimpu as inner permits are issued here to travel anywhere within the country apart from Paro and Thimpu. The initial plan was to skip Thimpu altogether but a localite insisted that we paid a visit to the majestic Buddha point.The 52…

Mystical Paro Taktsang:Bhutan

Almost every photo is of this beautiful place when one enters Bhutan on Google by image. We never had a defined itinerary but a must visit place was Tiger’s Nest. As a result our first destination on arrival was to trek to this alluring monastery. Tiger’s Nest is gaining global popularity for not only being one…

Stupendous Views of Gandikota

This place was on the list ever since we saw the stunning images on the views it offered.Finally on a quiet early morning we headed towards our destination. It was a pleasant change to have been greeted by clouds all the way. A smooth 5-6 hour drive alongside mountains and towering windmills bought us to Gandikota.It is a small…

Mountain Traipse:Great Lakes,Kashmir

“Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.” It has been a little more than two months since I got back from the trek and I still find myself reminiscing about it. Exulansis would…
