A solo trip to Ladakh years ago defined for me what I wanted to do with my life. It is now for you to realise too, ‘Time you enjoyed wasting, wasn’t wasted!’
Make this sojourn when the roads open and get enthralled by these experiences.

7 Photographs & Captions from my First Solo Trip to Ladakh
Blues, other than the Monday Morning ones, EXIST : Gaze at the azure blue skies, pristine lakes and surreal landscapes to live life as it was meant to be – carefree.
A nomadic existence : Cellphones wont work here and you will be glad they don’t! Forget about mundane stuff, what is life if not an adventure. The vast landscapes of Ladakh are primed to make one feel lost in the midst of never ending wilderness.
Unlock hidden talents : Surprise yourself by clicking stupendous pictures, the incredible land of Ladakh won’t disappoint you. The riot of colours can only make you insanely happy. Every photograph you take here is postcard worthy!
Connect with your inner soul : In the humdrum of city life, the basic inner connect has disappeared. Make friends from around the world and maybe you will meet a soul partner too. (Best of luck!)
Buddhism is cool : Get enchanted by the colourful monasteries, buy a thangka and a prayer wheel and learn some meditation too. The maroon robes of Ladakh could be a fashion statement!
Traffic, what traffic : Majestic mountains, wild surroundings and roads bereft of other cars. And yes, you aint dreamin’, the road will become your best friend in Ladakh.
Huff, puff & get in shape : The high altitude walks are an amazing way to become really fit, while gorging on freshly made organic food. Ask the friendly locals for those yummy, otherworldly apricots.

These pictures are all from the Ladakhi summers. I would love your opinion on this photo essay, for me to do more of the same.

When CAN I join you? Your photos are quite tempting, making me wish to drop everything here n go back to the Himalayas… they beckon… <3
They beckon all the time. It is only us who don’t listen. Well, I’m gonna be in Kumaon Uttarakhand very soon. Connect on twitter/instagram?
