• BATTAMBANG – Cambodia: The laid-back city of Battambang in Cambodia’s northwest may have a sleepy ambience distinct from the more upbeat hot spots of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville, but travellers who venture here will find plenty of excuses to linger. A host of temples sit scattered across the countryside, all within easy day-tripping distance from Battambang. It’s a bit of a slog up the side of Phnom Banan, 23km south of the city, to reach the summit temple of Prasat Banan, but it’s worth it for the views. The Phnom Sampeau complex, 12km southwest of Battambang, has a wondrous mishmash of colourful wats and stupas at its summit as well as sweeping views; while half-way down the mountain a track leads to a sombre Khmer Rouge killing cave. Here a bone-filled memorial reminds visitors of the atrocities carried out during their reign.
Eventours Travels in association with Arpan Kalita, presents some immersive experiences, both in nature and local culture across some of the most off the trail destinations in this world. Everyone loves to travel, but not everyone loves to travel the same way. Our Off The Trail booklet gather trips of a feather together so you can spend less time searching and more time dreaming about where you’ll go next. Special interest travel is more than a vacation. It’s a chance to get to know your world better by putting yourself on a first-name basis with the people, places, and things that make it worth exploring. This is your planet. Come and get it.
"There is no passion to be found playing small--in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living." -Nelson Mandela
Arpan Kalita :
A Wanderlust at heart, a Photographer by choice and a Graphic Designer by profession. Hailing from the township of Guwahati, he has a special place for 'The Himalayas' in his heart. Given a chance he would prefer to wander in the mountains till eternity. Perhaps the love for the mountains has brought out the best in him when it comes to Landscape Photography. Mountains, it’s people and their struggle for existence; is what propels him, he says and also makes him humble.
A self possessed drifter, Arpan has wandered from engineering assignments to account tables to graphics to getting lost in nature. A graphic designer by profession, he has made travelling his home otherwise. “I want to live & feel all the shades, tones & variations of nature in my life. And for that matter, I am horribly unquenched this journey with travelling and photography started in 2011”. Fresh from a stint in Delhi, the wanderer in him awaked to a new life. He made his camera an integral part of his life.
Involved with WildLife and Community conservation. Recent Project was with the Snow Leopard Conservancy - India Trust (SLC-IT) in Ladakh. His facebook page: fb.com/awaywithframes says more on his works.
