Jet Airways Frequent Flyer Miles are Useless?

Ever since I had first flown with Jet Airways to Ladakh, I have developed a liking for it. Even though I did fly with Air India and Go Air on that sector, I always gravitated back towards Jet. And I also thought being loyal had its perks, especially while flying. […]

Travel Essentials: Lotus Herbals Sunblock Spray SPF 50

Getting sunburn is no fun, yet it happens when we travel, especially when we travel to high altitude places like Ladakh, where the thinner atmosphere is able to filter fewer UV rays. In fact as per WHO, at each 1000 meter altitude gain, UV rays increases by 10 to 12%. […]

A relaxing trip to Pushkar

It’s not often I get to do a relaxed and chilled out trip; generally my trips are either for photography or for deep introspection. While that is what I love to do, there are times when it can feel a little hectic. Last year’s trip to Pushkar Camel Fair was […]

When disappointment is sweet…

When disappointment is sweet…

I don’t think there is anyone who likes to be disappointed, I surely don’t. Yet, there are times when disappointments turn into a sweet surprise, sort of like for the man who got lemons and made lemonade out of them (presumably he had rest of the ingredients.) When we started […]

Night at KMVN Mukteshwar

Night at KMVN Mukteshwar

Sometimes the best thing about a place is not the temple or the supposed natural wonder you had read about online. Rather a place you initially went to, with the intention of spending a night. However, the place itself becomes not only a place to spend your night, rather a […]

How-to travel from Nubra to Pangong Tso

You must be wondering, why I am writing about traveling to two of the most visited destinations in Ladakh. After all, pretty much everyone who travels to Ladakh, visits Nubra Valley and Pangong Tso. And it is fairly common knowledge, that in order to visit these two destinations, you need […]
