Travelogue section of Yogesh features travelogues of my trips and rides to various parts of India and in particular, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan and Ladakh (my favorite and most frequently visited places).

I have attempted to organize these travelogues by states and while some are posted on, rest are posted on BCMTouring, a travel forum I run.
