Travel Unplanned – The Best Way to Enjoy Adventure and Explore

Unplanned journey is among the most beautiful one. It may sound stupid, but yes actually it is among the best trips you may have. Since beginning, we have been told about planning and preparing. Be it anything, any incident or situation in our life, we have been told and taught to plan, prepare and schedule everything and that’s what we do. We plan and then we execute. That is certainly is a wise decision. But there is a joy in doing things without planning too. There are so many people who love to travel unplanned. No doubt, if you travel unplanned, there are certain challenges, but there is always a way to overcome every challenge. Unplanned travelling means adventure and wonderful memories. What if, you are enjoying a sound sleep and you get a call at 2 AM? “Hey there?” “Hey Ron, what’s...

My First Time Camping at Triund

Have you ever talked with the air? You must be thinking that I am nerd, how can someone talk with the air? But if you are 90s kid and love Aryans, then you must know the song Ye hawa kahati hae kya sun to meri jana, meri jana... One of the most beautiful things a guy who is tired of city life can do is to go somewhere away from the materialist world and find solace in the lap of nature. And that’s what I did. I ran away from Delhi and spent some time, took a nap in the lap of nature. I wonder why we are running behind materialistic world while the peace lies in the nature. I have had the best moments of my life there. I tell you whenever I hear the word “let us go somewhere’, the very first picture that my mind imagines is somewhere into the jungle, a place surrounded by mountains, alpine ...

Things you should know before doing Triund Camping

Situated in the lap of nature, Triund is a small hill station in Kangra district in Himachal Pradesh. This place has rich mesmerizing beauty and is located at a height of 2,282m. Among the most beautiful hill stations, Triund is truly a jewel of Dharamshala.  People go there all the year to experience the enchanting ambiance of nature. The most famous activity to do is Triund Camping. I also trekked all the way from McLeod Ganj to Triund for camping only. Imagine yourself surrounded by big green lush atmosphere, snow-capped mountains, the cacophony of the nature; what else is needed more? This is a place where you don’t need an alarm clock to wake you up in the morning. You just need to connect yourself with the nature and that’s the only important thing to do here. Though it looks so beau...

Triund Trekking – My Reasons of Solo Trekking to Triund

While I was staying at my maternal uncle’s in my childhood, I got to enjoy the beauty of nature. Every morning was fresh and energizing. The soothing sound of peacock, the mesmerizing view of hills and land covered with mustard crop, the animals grazing, and people going to farms, was really a wonderful part of my life that I got to live there. I grew up and shifted to Gurgaon and now Delhi and I literally miss the hills and the love of nature. Thus, I always tend to go into the woods and explore my love for nature. When I decided to do trekking to Triund, the only thing I had in my mind was to embrace the love of Mother Nature and to fill my mind with best of memories. The green land and breath taking views of valley were my inspirations. As an artist and poet, I find my muse here. I have...

One Night at Dharamkot – Second Halt of My Solo Trip to Triund

Dharamkot is a small village in Kangra. Surrounded by hills and green lush beauty, this place was the second halt of my solo trip to Triund. I was searching a room in McLeod Ganj and then a local man suggested me to come here. And in the dark night, I walked from McLeod Ganj to Dharamkot. Though it not far, just two or three kilometres and you are in Dharamkot, but it can be little unsafe in the night. And I did it. I was damn excited. Why? Because, when I am back from Dharamkot, I will be having many interesting stories to tell people. Thus, I took the road and walked all by myself, all alone travelling in the night. For a moment, I thought I didn’t even have anything for self-defence, but who’s gonna attack me? So, after walking for long, I finally reached there, in Dharamkot. I visited ...

Unplanned Trip to McLeod Ganj – Nature’s Own Abode

A perfect weekend gateway, McLeod Ganj is a small, but beautiful place, next to Dharamshala, is also known as Upper Dharamshala. McLeod Ganj was the second destination in my unplanned journey to Triund. This place has magnetic charm which attracted me and I just without planning come here, without knowing what to do and where to go. Totally nomadic style, I just came here. I enjoy travelling a lot.  While I was in the cab, on my way to McLeod Ganj from Dharamshala, I tried to check places to stay and places to visit, but then the nomad in me shouted, “MJ, no bruh! This is cheating!” Thus, I placed my phone back in my bag and looked outside. This was my day of an unplanned trip to McLeod Ganj. What did I do on my unplanned trip to McLeod Ganj? From my previous blog post, you must have...

My First Solo Trip to Triund – From New Delhi to McLeod Ganj

I have always loved to travel alone. And when someone asks me for travelling, my first impression is, travelling alone. I love solo travelling. It is the best feeling that I get as a traveller. And the next level is my short unplanned trips. I whenever travel; I usually don’t plan to do. When I reach the destination, then I decide what do to. And this happen with me in this trip. This was my first solo trip to McLeod Ganj. This was my first solo trip to Dharamshala. This was like a dream coming trip. The first day of my solo started on a Thursday night. When I first this idea of doing solo travelling, the very first place that came to my mind was somewhere in Himachal Pradesh, some place which is isolated, away from traffic noise, away from the crowd and a place where I could just lay down...
