My best adventure ever and dreaming that to be never-ending like a horizon.

To be simple how it began, It was on August, I decided to have a Solo Trip and I wished to travel to a place where I feel even more punched up to survive, Yeah c’mon man, life is all about facing challenges and learning from them. I thought of many places but, I have always dreamt of traveling to Kashmir. So that’s decided…!

Now, the next question would be “WHEN?!!!!” So I surfed a couple of blogs and got to know about the climatic conditions of the place in the month of November & December.[in simple I want to see snow (dot)]. It’s a bit risky as I’m vulnerable to cold temperature… But if I achieve it, then it would invest tremendous positivity into my life.

So the initial plan was to visit Srinagar / Pahalgam/ Gulmarg/ Sonamarg / Leh / Kargil. But due to extreme weather conditions, roads to Leh and Kargil were blocked way back in the month of September itself. 😞

Then The WAIT.!! I started to count the days… it’s a 100days wait..! & a lot of preparations.. everything paid off.. in the last 6 days.

Some people say Traveling is not about just taking pictures & posting on Social media. It’s about how you carry urself.. and adapt to the changes.

So Why too many pictures? It’s different.! People always travel abroad for adventures but I wanted to change their perspective…

So I decided my post & updates should be about Climate, place, food & the spectacular mountains.. then a little me… (but still I had me in a couple more of them 😜). I hope you guys travel there after seeing such stunning mountains.


Learning from this trip, changed my perspective of Kashmir.

  • It’s a wonderful place. It’s a hidden beauty. I think people didn’t travel here because of political problems but I hope it will change in the future.

  • People here are more friendly than, YOU see in Media.

  • The climate here is so challenging & you need to appreciate the Army men for safeguarding us… why? They too come from different parts of India, They face the same difficulties that I faced. (Native people are adapted to the climate rite..!)

  • YOU don’t need to know Hindi to visit here, people understand English better or in some cases, someone will come for rescue when you face language barriers.

  • The food here suits the climate perfectly and it’s so tasty. You should try native food. 🥘🍖

  • Their culture is different, Building structures, roads and the buses are so so different and they are lovable to see & experience.

Note: Sorry, I’m neither a blogger to write a perfect paragraph nor a photographer to post nice pictures. Just a person who wants to see what’s there in the world… other than just me doing the same routine…

The next time when I visit here it’s not going to be a solo adventure 😜👊🏼. My advice to people is “YOU should visit Kashmir at least once in your lifetime” Worth more than the money you spend. Your trip will be a fun-filled adventure that u can remember to rest of ur life.

I captured a lot of beautiful scenes of Kashmir…I couldn’t post all of them here..if u guys need it..ping me so I would share those.
