Ghepan Lake Trek (The Longest Lake of Himachal)

The beauty of the trek lies not just in the destination – Ghepan lake but the entire route stitches the pieces of beauty together in the form of a jewel. The Gaddi community (shepherds) you will encounter on the way will take you back to the times of nomadic life. Their tentative houses of stones made without any mortar will leave you contesting the greatest engineers of modern times. The green pastures of plain land at an elevation of 11,000 Ft and the dry terrain of the surrounding mountain peaks will give you a glimpse of Tibet.

Bhanara – Hidden in Himachal

I have travelled for years in the Himalayas to explore places that are still far from the eyeballs of mainstream tourists and tour agencies. Spots that are closer to nature and still hold peace and tranquillity. During one such trip, I came across this shepherd village of Kullu Manali called BHANARA where no tourist had reached before.

Kareri Village – A nest of Humans

There are hundreds of places that haven’t seen crowds or noise yet. These places are as beautiful as Manali, Mcleodganj, Kasol, Mussourie used to be decades ago. Move away from the highway and travel on unexplored roads. These roads lead you to the hidden paradise of mountains.

Shimla – The lost paradise

The recent pandemic made me travel to Shimla as the rest of the Himachal was closed for tourists. I went there only for a week but stayed for 3 weeks. My perspective about the beauty and charm of the queen of hills changed again. The old is gold theory proved to be 0right. I had seen more than 50 places in Himachal but Shimla has its own charm. The mix of urban and rural life, the facilities of cities adjoined with peace of mountains is what makes Shimla unique. My friends helped me to explore some places in and around which are known to only natives. These unexplored places for tourists still retain the heart of the hill station. In this blog, I will share about those places.

Shali Tibba – A Peak hanging from the sky

Nature gifted humans all the powers but to fly. We can run like tigers, climb on trees like monkeys, swim like fishes, evolve like apes but we cannot fly. Humans held a desire since his origin to rise above and watch the beautiful earth from the top. We even sometimes curse nature for depriving usContinue reading “Shali Tibba – A Peak hanging from the sky”
