kashmir, kashmir travel

It was quite hard to take the decision for traveling in Kashmir. Negative feedback from many people gave me sharp negative vibes before the trip. But I was determined.

My wife and I were ready for the life-changing trek called KGL or Kashmir Great Lakes Trek.

We started our journey for Srinagar on the bright morning of 7th July 2018. See what happened afterward.

Sikkim Diaries: Serendipity at Nathu La Pass

Watching snowfall has always been a beautiful dream for me. Never did I imagine that I would experience it and that too, in the month of May when it is the peak of the summer season in India.

Yes, it happened to me a couple of years back in Sikkim.

It was the second week of May. We set out to visit Tsomgo Lake (Chhangu), Baba Mandir and Nathu La (Himalayan pass) from Gangtok. It was cloudy when we started at 10 in the morning. By the time we reached Chhangu it started drizzling.

I have seen so many beautiful images of Tsomgo Lake with its bluish water. Unfortunately, it was only shades of grey all around that day. Only the prayer flags added a dash of color to the landscape.

After a brief halt by the lake, we headed towards Baba Mandir. We had a bowl of steaming Momo at a restaurant beside the temple dedicated to the brave soul and legend Baba Harbhajan Singh.

By the time we resumed our journey to Nathu La it was raining heavily. Hailstones lashed the road making it slippery and harder to drive. For a moment, I thought we won’t be able to make it to Nathu La this time due to poor weather condition.

Little did I know then that the bad weather would soon turn out to be a boon for us! 🙂

It was getting colder as we drove up the zig-zag roads. After some time, I noticed that the hailstones looked unusually white.

We asked the driver to stop. As the car stopped, I opened the door and stretched my hands outside.

Gosh! It was not raining anymore. It was snowing! :O

When we finally reached Nathu La, it was white all around. Soft, white snow covered the entire place.

I didn’t have my gloves with me, therefore, managed to click only a few snaps with quivering fingers.

At a distance, the Indo-Chinese border gate was almost invisible in the mist and snow.

It was freezing outside and soon I had to retire to the warmth of our car. This snowfall was completely unexpected but it was truly AMAZING an experience! A memory I would cherish all my life.

Snowfall… or luck by chance! Whatever it is… a selfie is a must. Hope you recognize me…  😉 🙂

Spiti Valley Solo Girl Hyperlapse – I’m Walking Away

Spiti Valley Solo Girl Hyperlapse

Here is a hyperlapse video in Spiti Valley. It is based on a Solo Girl Spiti Valley Journey.

It’s a dream for most of the girls to travel solo and explore the mountains, other places. This video can inspire them to go and travel by their own, like we say just go solo.

Where and How I made this Video?

This video is technically a Hyperlapse photography. I believe this is the first time anyone attempt a hyperlapse video in Spiti Valley and Kinnaur. This hyperlapse has been made with over 1000 images. During our Kinnaur and Spiti Valley tour I have planned for a hyperlapse video on my Wife. I have taken hyperlapse photos in Chitkul Village, Kalpa, Nako Village, Mudh, Tabo, Komic Village.

Hope you guys like it.

Travel, Share & Inspire.
