Crossing the beautiful valley from goechala to samiti lake!!! #goechala #samitilake #kangchenjunganationalpark #mountainlife #valleyviews #indiahikes
CONNECTED The tranquil moon brings me peace, Reminds me of your visage so serene. The stars twinkle and glitter all night, As you observe my sparkly eyes. I smell your body fragrance so sweet, In the whiff of that air touching my skin. The chirping birds send me messages, Of love and kindness we wish to spread. The clouds will bring you pouring rain, Emptying my worry, emotions and pain. I send you the bright shinning light, With my sunset and your sunrise. We might be a thousand miles apart, But nature connects our soul and heart. . . . POEM Š Shreya Rewar.

Mythology says an honest and pious man can find the stairway to heaven on the other side of the mountains here.
Could there be a place where the water is passing through stones and creating soothing music to ears and where the water is crystal clear.....yes these places still exist!!!! shot in route to thakoor top trek. It's our responsibility to keep and conserve the nature so that coming generation can also see and enjoy. #uttarakhand #trek #indiahikes #nature #incredibleindia #travel #travelblogger #river #thakoortop

Waking up in the lap of the Himalayas was undoubtedly of the most memorable mornings of my life :) Good morning folks !
At 4am...Roopkund trek summit..the journey was indeed the reward... #roopkundtrek #tth #indiahikes #nofilters #uttarakhand #roopkund #trekking #withfriends
@indiahikes #indiahikes #Ihpawpals #kasol #dogs #parvativalley #mountains #backpacking #solotravel #himachal #hills #happiness the pictures might not be the best...but I'm sure the story is worth it... so recently in the month of April, I reached Kasol on a solo trip..tired & sleepless, after the full night bus journey, I finally reached the main market of Kasol, rocking like a pendulum in the local Himachal bus... trusting the Google map I started to walk towards the backpackers hostel I had booked, but interestingly after walking across the entire town there was no sign of the hostel and where the map said 'you have reached your destination"... was just a road ahead with trees on my right and Parvati river flowing below on my left.... All the people I asked...had no clue of the hostel but kept saying it might be ahead... the phone no. I had, came out to be incorrect... Finally a guy outside a little guest house, looked a bit certain about the hostel name but he also said it's a little ahead...by now, Kasol was already far behind... I started to walk further... strange it may sound, but talking to animals is pretty normal for me... Hence, I started chatting with this dog, who has started to walk along from outside that guest house... I told him how tired and hungry I was..which didn't interest him...and so he started to walk ahead... Soon I realised that every time I stopped to click a picture or to admire the scenery or just coz I was tired...this dog would also stop along... I don't know whether is was my gut or the closeness of oneself to his own instincts when on their own, that I started to feel that this dog was leading me somewhere... As, a believer in instincts...I started to blindly follow... I followed him to the point where he went down a thin barren trail, to a bridge that took us across the Parvati river and I obediently followed. He greeted a friend ahead which was a good break from all that walk.... Refer to the comment section for the story ahead...
A wise old mother is Nature--She guideth her children's feet In many a flowery pathway;And her strong life-currents beat,Sometimes in intricate channels--As a mountain stream may run--But ever her purpose triumphs,And ever the goal is won.Her eyes are the eyes of Argus,And she utters her decree:The brook shall come to the river,And the river shall reach the sea. . . #gopro #goprosession #goproindia #goproin #hero5session #himachaldiaries #igers #igersofindia #indiaunexplored #illgrammers #igramming_india #pwi_insta #indiahikes #dehradundiaries #uttrakhand #travelblogger #ig_peakdistrict #ig_shotz #natgeotravel #theimaged #photographersofindia #instanature #natureza #natureporn #naturephotography #ig_neverstopexploring #ig_nature
So many stories untold. So many memories made. A lifetime lived within one truly.
Those kind of moments when you try to think whether you are still dreaming or actually awake😉

My best friend gave me the best advice He said each day's a gift and not a given right Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind And try to take the path less traveled by That first step you take is the longest stride If today was your last day And tomorrow was too late #photography #travel #travelphotography #trekking #bagpacker #hiking #wanderlust #instahimachal #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #hippiinhills #himachalpictures #trekpackers #unravelhimachal #instatravel #vacation #fun #tourism #instapassport #mytravelgram #unravelhimachal #travellove #like4like #follow4follow #indiahikes #kmhoe #himalayangeographic #tripotocommunity #highonhimalayas #ngtindia @tripotocommunity @tripadvisor_ @tripadvisor
So, will you follow us all through the trek, asked Bops. Like every dog in the world does, said his expression. And so he did religiously. During our trek to Beas Kund, on the first day as we were about to set camp in Dhundi amidst snowfall, we met this big guy. I instantly wanted to name him Sheru, but we had a cook by the same name in the team and hence refrained doing that and he was left unnamed. There's a avalanche study center in Dhundi and this four legged friend was dwelling with them. I guess he was bored seeing the same faces in many days and hence as soon as he saw us he came running to us. For the next three days he followed our team wherever we went. On the third day near Bakartach we had to traverse and get down through a wall which was tricky for us humans and impossible for the pawed puffer. He looked upon us from the top as we got down, circled around the place for a while and left. I was a bit teary to let him go but our guide said 'dekh na jab aap wapas aaoge toh woh Dhundi me rahega' (when you return, he will be waiting in Dhundi). So with hopes of seeing him again we continued our trek towards Beas Kund.

Just cannot get my mind to come back from the mountains, even though I'm physically back here! So many memories were created and so many moments to reminisce🏔💗 Khullara campsite; the only campsite where the skies were clear at night even after the rain showers throughout the evening ⛈Exploring the campsite to find the perfect viewing point and then watching the stars at night had to be my most favourite memory of this trip! The mountain range was visible more cleary during the night with not a single cloud in sight and with a full moon night. I couldn't really capture the beauty at night from my phone but here's a picture that I clicked when we left the site the next morning!⛺️🗯. . . . #kuaripass #trekking #trek #solotraveler #solo #himalayas #himalayantrek #campsite #vistas #lovely #tents #bugyals #indiahikes #lategram #incredibleindia #uttarakhand #solovacationers #lategram #majormissing
Skyline behind the 100rupee note, it is said that when the government authorities first saw the view form Goecha La, they were so moved by the view that they decided to feature it on Rs.100 note. Taken at Dzongri top from 4171mt, So glad to see this!!! My first encounter with Mighty Knagchenjunga was indeed a memorable one!!! #goechala #kangchenjunganationalpark #dzongri #himalayas #sikkim #indiahikes #
"Traveling...it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller". - IBN BATTUTA Kuari Pass trek...trekking through the Himalayas has left me speechless. But the stories will come soon about the beauty, the rawness of the terrain, the genuineness of the people.

[Part 1] A moment the wild swallows like a flight Of withered gust-caught leaves, serenely high, Toss in the windrack up the muttering sky. The leaves hang still. Above the weird twilight, The hurrying centres of the storm unite And spreading with huge trunk and rolling fringe, Each wheeled upon its own tremendous hinge, Tower darkening on. And now from heaven’s height, With the long roar of elm trees swept and swayed, And pelted waters, on the vanished plain Plunges the blast. Behind the wild white flash That splits abroad the pealing thunder-crash, Over bleared fields and gardens disarrayed, Column on column comes the drenching rain. #photography #travel #travelphotography #trekking #bagpacker #hiking #wanderlust #instahimachal #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #hippiinhills #himachalpictures #trekpackers #unravelhimachal #instatravel #vacation #fun #tourism #instapassport #mytravelgram #unravelhimachal #travellove #like4like #follow4follow #indiahikes #kmhoe #himalayangeographic #tripotocommunity #highonhimalayas #ngtindia

Beautiful scenes @indiahikes base camp Jaubari! This being my first Himalayan trek, has taught me a lot of things! I believe that only when you are put in difficult situations, do we know the strength we have hidden inside! Having said, this was a totally new experience, and the best of all. I would love to go for a Himalayan trek! Absolutely memorable this!😇 . . 📓📓📓✏️✏️✒️✒️ I have started a blog series about my trek with #indiahikes - link in bio!

A dog's love is only second to that of a mother's love. I read those lines somewhere and this kiddo 'chintu' ( i called him so) proved to be true on our last trek, buran ghati organized by @indiahikes. Look at his stare and his sharp eyes😊 . I cant remember how we met him, probably it was on dayara where there were quite a few shepherds put up. All together there were 3 dogs plus this lil one chintu. They followed us all the way to litham campsite. It rained 22 hrs straight at that place. Next day as we proceeded further, two dogs including this followed us. You have a stream to cross which was flowing with a force. We all needed a support to cross it. Everyone was of the opinion that the dogs would return home now. To our surprise the big one gave up and returned. This chintu ran up and down by the stream. The next moment he took a blind jump as he saw all of us moving ahead. Nothing short of a great adventure, swimming through the force for his size and age. This act of him moved me , I offered him some biscuits enroute. Again he was with us at dhunda entertaining everyone. Next day was a summit day and anyone who has done buran pass will know the wall and how ropes are used to descend. He summited the pass ( he played all the way, up and down chasing snow balls that roll down) and we knew this is going to be his last destination. We said a good bye asking him to reach home safe. It was drizzling in the evening while we slept at Munirang. At around midnight I heard a whimpering sound. I was sure it was him. I let him in to sleep inside. He looked very tired and I offered something to eat. That was when I took this picture. He sure had won me with his love, it was very heart melting. How did he manage to come down the pass ? I still wonder to this day. Picture 2: The older dog, clicked at Dayara while it was raining. #ihpawpals #indiahikes #travelgram #travelindia #hike #hiking #getoutside #buranghati #wanderlust #himalayas #trekking #adventure #adventurelife #canon #photography #onelife #kinnaur #himachal #himachalpradesh #landofapples #moments #india #canon
Warming up on treks has never been more fun! In the video, Trek Leader, Jude Rayen @rayenjude, and his trekker show off how this happy feet dance keeps them warm, especially during the biting evening chill of the mountains. Have you tried this too? 😀 #Himalayas #Indiahikes #HappyFeet
