A Hidden Gem – Prashar Lake

……. (Don’t forget to check out the video- Link given at the end of post) For longing to go deep into mountains; to explore everything that surprises and mysteries of their origin and existence always fascinated me. So, this time, I ventured on for this mystical beauty that keeps its mysteries intact within. Choices were…

Postcards from Spiti Valley

Almost two month since I came back from Spiti; and I still can’t believe my eyes off. Walking down the memory lane, loving everything I felt & experienced. Living a dream is special; but Spiti to me is on some other level. Just being there was enough of all that the weather be icing on the…

Some good-byes aren’t easy!

  So now it is ending! I have no place left in my itinerary. It is time to go back to the world of commoners, to run after everything just to end up catching nothing. To be in a world where no one’s existence matters and where we aren’t free to be ourselves in order…

Spiti Diaries ( Day 6 ) Langza – Chandertaal via Kunzum

In last post we reached Langza Village (at 14,500ft) dying with hunger. Our car stopped in front of Phan Dey Home Stay and we rushed in to ask if some food can be cooked. Doors of that house were opened by a man in his mid-forties. His eyes were filled with warmth, completely in contrast…

Spiti Diaries ( Day 5 ) Chicham-Key Gompa – Komik – Hikkim

In last post we reached Kibber and found a place to pitch our tents. Then we started trekking to a village called Chicham. We could have travelled to chicham in our car, but it was only 4 o’clock so we thought trekking would be a better idea. We just knew it was 4-5kms away and…

Spiti Diaries ( Day 4 ) Tabo – Pin Valley – Kibber

In last post we reached Tabo and charged our gadgets while having dinner. In this post I will elaborate about witnessing galaxies in Tabo, way to Pinvalley and Kibber. As we walked out of the eating point (that was neither like a restaurant nor a dhaba) moon was nowhere to be seen, just the stars….

Spiti Diaries ( Day 3 ) Kaza – Dhankar – Tabo

In the last post, I shared my experience of Manali to Kaza via Batal and Kunzum La. In this post I will talk about Dhankar, Tabo and my experience of witnessing galaxy for the first time in Spiti. Zostel in Kaza is place where you can acquaint with fellow travellers. Good thing is, it  allows…

Spiti Diaries ( Day 2 ) Manali to Kaza via Batal and Kunzum

We woke up before the sun and hopped into the taxi to start our adventurous journey. From the streets of Manali via Gulaba and Marhi to traffic of Rohtang La, we drove on the road covered with clouds witnessing amusing sights! First, we took a halt at Marhi (about 35km from Manali) for some tea-coffee-maggi-omelette-sandwich, basically everything available!…

Spiti Diaries ( Day 1 ) Delhi to Manali

A paradise- what can it possibly look like? Clear sky, mountains, green meadows, water streams, cotton like clouds and most important, no human being in sight? That’s like describing Spiti 🙂 A place that gives you out of the world experience! I read about this place a few years back and fell in love with it from…

What is Beauty?

Beauty is not what our eyes see, it is what our eyes don’t see. It is not what our brain doesn’t perceive, it is what our heart doesn’t feel. It is not what we see outside, it is what we neglect inside. We rush, run around, see faces- happy, sad, loving, crying, laughing, dying. We…

Young & Free

What is it to be young? To be free as a bird and fly wherever we want to. To be able to go through all highs and lows on our own. A time when you are too old to rely on your parents but too young to settle down with your own family. It is…
