Trekking and Traveling:

I always love to trek in the mountains especially the Himalayas and the Western Ghats.

My first hike was in Kerala and I thoroughly enjoyed the adrenaline rush and excitement of making it to the top. And over the years and through a lot of treks I have learnt more about myself. Initially, it was the destination that mattered but now it is the journey that matters be it on a hike or my life.

Trekking on the Himalayas was nothing short of a miracle. I was gutted down in my routine life and I wanted to breathe and perceive life in a different way. I certainly didn’t know what I was seeking but the trek to Himalayas till date have always made me a better person and an ardent seeker.

Travel Photography:

Being an amateur photographer, I have had the opportunity of capturing the mountains in different seasons and I am never satisfied with the photos as I am unable to capture the rawness and the awe of the Himalayas! But the mountains always have me craving for more.

I shall take you through the basics of Photography while on a trek.

Travel Writing / Blogging:

We shall peek into the genre of travel writing and blogs. Travel Blogging is something which I have been doing since a few years and a few of my Travel articles have been published in a few magazines, online blogs and newspapers.

I am not an expert in any but would love to share my experiences and journeys!
