Bhanara Village – Hidden Heaven

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.

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 us…

Pari Tibba (A haunted hill)

Pari Tibba, a world which is known to only those who read and feel Ruskin Bond’s books. In his books, he has mentioned this hilltop as beautiful and mysterious as a flower bloomed on earth for the first time. Location A world, known to only a handful of people and touched by as less as…

Island Of Sunsets

I still remember that day in the Bay of Bengal. After covering a tiring journey from Havelock to Neil island in the ferry which was rather a bumpy ride in the blue sea. The seasickness had overpowered my brain and butterflies in my tummy were turning into bugs, crawling towards my throat and trying to…
