After watching "into the wild" movie over a couple of times. I, desperately wanted to live free like him into the wild. I was finding an escape and I 'am still doing the same. This movie changed my life. I left my home and moved to Delhi, started working as professional photographer to earn & live on my on & with an idea of a day i will disappear in woods. By that time I was aware about Ladakh road trips and some common treks only. Frustrated of not getting any escape i left my job & moved back  to Jaipur with some savings.

 Later I got to know about "Chitkul" a village at Indo - tibet border , made up my mind to visit there and started preparing.

  When i begun my journey I had no clue what will happen next, where to get bus and how things will go ? I was a bit nervous about this but much more elated. While i was travelling everyone asked about my purpose of going solo. They say there is no fun in that and I had just this answer that i am not alone I have a bag and a camera! 

I was overjoyed travelling whole night in bus from Shimla to jeory I was gazing at the hills from my window and they were smiling back at me :)

I had an amazing time in Himachal and everytime I think about it I feel like packing up my stuff and leave for a new journey into the hills again. 
Here is the time lapse video of my trip 

Never miss another travel video!

Last 3 days were really awesome and touching. I met some really beautiful souls. Met with an accident slapped a stranger (gunaah) tried off riding and now on my way to chandigarh and then chitkul, i can't wait to reach there and see baspa river, explore this village. This guy is allah ka banda. "Aasmani kitab" he says - reader who teaches in school how to read this book which is a book of god. How wonderfully he explained "Khuda ek hai" to me. He is having roza so he only eats once a day. May allah give him strength

Beautiful place. Very peaceful. Bhimakali temple and Bashal trek are the major attraction.

It was really hard for me to find a budget guest house but finally i did. I will surely visit this place again. you can see majestic views of kinnaur kailash covered by clouds most of the time. Aashiqui point, suicide point are the most common attraction here.

you see that hill at the back thats Kinnaur Kailash

Shimla - Arrived here last night, somehow managed to find a bed but couldn't sleep. This place is mess. Rain made it more worse than ever. Mall road is quite famous here.
