 The sophisticated successor of the desi walking stick, trekking poles seem to be gaining ‘momentum’ with the latest generation of trekkers. So the big dilemma, are trekking (or hiking) poles just a fancy equipment or an actually effective tool? Do you really need to buy one? The primary role of a trekking pole is to create a new point of contact between your body and the ground, in addition to your two feet. So technically from a bipedal, you turn into a

 Acetazolamide or more ‘popularly’ known as Diamox is the magic pill for the sufferers among mountains. The drug that’s gonna help you battle AMS. Heads up, Diamox can you help prevent AMS or at the most ease your initial symptoms. But it definitely doesn’t cure it. The only cure is to go down, descend as quickly as possible.  WHAT DOES DIAMOX DO? Your blood is a harmonious amalgam of various biological, chemical and physical components. Now not going into the ‘bloody’ details, the components of

 Acute Mountain Sickness or Altitude Sickness is a medical condition induced by decreased levels of oxygen as you move above the sea level. Your body is used to breathing air saturated with a certain definite amount of oxygen. As you ascend up, the oxygen in the atmosphere decreases. Hence your body is put under a stress. And the poor thing has to adjust to the diminished oxygen availability. Now, usually, this doesn’t cause any problems. No, let me rephrase it. This doesn’t

 A-cute-Mountain-Sickness (AMS) It might sound cute, but don’t be fall for it or else it will definitely take your breath away. (ah the pun!) Acute mountain sickness or altitude sickness is a medical condition induced by the paucity of oxygen in your body. As you move above the sea level the barometric pressure of the atmosphere falls.  Hence the partial pressure of oxygen falls. Your body is adapted to breathing air with a particular level of oxygen. When this level reduces your body

 One of the major concerns before any trek is what to carry and what not to. Am I carrying too much or am I carrying too little? What gear should I buy? How many fleeces should I carry? After all the recurring questions, from our trekkers and workshops that we delivered at Decathlon's in al the major cities of India, we decided to pen down the perfect list of items you will require for a trek. Sometimes we tend to pack

 There is a reason the Himalayas are called god and everybody who has trekked in its shadows knows exactly why. The mighty range holds the highest peak on earth and what could we say about it that hasn’t already been said? No matter how many new treks come up in the Himalayan range, there are always untouched trails and untrodden paths in the mountains and hence, the number of treks and trekkers grows every year. From easy to moderate to difficult

 Have you ever got comfortable in your flight or train seat, reached for your earphones and then panicked because you realize that in the end moment packing hassle you forgot to keep them with you? We feel you mate. Music, from my perspective, is one of the most important things about traveling.And, There is a good reason I say that.  Music has the power to transport us; to the place, we are visiting/back home/ in somebodies arms/ to that memory you wished lasted

 Did you know I just accomplished a straight 36-hour marathon and also managed to gain a couple of kilos? Yup, you read it right. Whilst I watched the protagonist hop-skip-jump from one country to another, I ended up dunking two tubs of ice cream and 6 cups of coffee. Now I hope that you won’t become as addicted as I did, but believe me, every series on this list has successfully turned me into a TV series abuser. Because after all

 Movies make us believe the unbelievable, they inspire us to do the impossible. It doesn’t matter if it’s a tiny orange-white stripped animated Nemo fish or surreal aliens or just the protagonist, we laugh, we cry, we rejoice and fall in love with them every damn time! But the best part of the movies is that they take us to places, show us the sceneries, cities, and countries that are probably beyond our imagination (and also beyond our bank accounts,

 Travelling is incomplete without a good book in your backpack and plays a significant role in igniting the fire in your heart. We believe that travelling without a book is like leaving a part of you behind and so we decided to curate a list of our favorite travel books of all time. Read below as we explain why these books fall under the top 10. 1. ON THE ROAD Long before the travel bug crawled into my brain, I was an

 Since long, Ladakh has held every adventure lover by their gut. Be it riders, trekkers, backpackers or even tourists, everybody has dreamt of walking down the cold desert, slipping down the sand dunes of Nubra, camping at Pangong and stargazing in Tur-tuk. When in Ladakh, always expect the unexpected, you never know what the next curve on the road brings and be ready to be swarmed with Julley's everywhere you go. With warm people and cold climate, the snow-laden mountains

 And sometimes, just sometimes… your dreams come true, riding towards you.Somewhere between Leh and Manali  Just when I was about to give up on getting a ride from Karu to Manali, I decided to give it one last shot a few km away from Karu where riders usually stopped to give their ass a break and have a meal at this cozy little dhaba. I absolutely dreaded boarding any sort of public transport as the roads were bumpy and I am a

 Gone is the time when Ladakh was a hidden land travelled by just adventure junkies who got high on mountain fog. Tourism in Ladakh is at an all-time high and it is on every bucket list. Now, while mostly all the tourism is attracted to usual sites like Pangong Tso, Magnetic Hill, Khardungla (which are all jaw dropping beautiful) there is a part of Ladakh now many people know of. Apart that lies uncovered, tucked safely between the diaries of

 Like any travel lover, Ladakh has always been one of my favorite places to go to. Despite of the many times I have been to the land of Lamas, I always happen to end up on a road or a village or a lake that I have never been to before and I realize exactly why this land beckons me. I visit Ladakh every year, sometimes exploring its rugged roads with my metal horse, crossing all the high passes. riding

 With a backpack on my shoulder, I stood amidst the road, waiting for someone from whom I could get a ride as I chose not to take any other mode of transportation to reach Manali. I left from Leh in the morning where I spent my time housed by a beautiful Ladhaki family, in a hope of finding someone who could give me a lift. After walking for almost an hour with no sign of success, I started to get

  Traveling across the length and breadth of India will not cost you a fortune but hitch-hiking through this country will definitely help you earn some. Exploring this diverse land through hitch-hiking gives you an opportunity to absorb all the unique culture and the colors of the nation. Through the course of time, we have hitchhiked from north to south and east to west and so far the experience has left us more in love with the land than we ever

 The name “Spiti” means “the middle land”, i.e. the land between Tibet and India. But Spiti is more than just what meets the name. One of the most unexplored destinations in Himachal Pradesh, Spiti is located at a very high altitude and is also considered as a desert mountain valley. The ice-topped mountains, the river that follows you like a shadow throughout the valley, the waterfalls and the Grey-blue skies, you can go on and on about the place but

 Spiti or the land of nomads is situated at 12,500 ft above the sea level in Himachal Pradesh (India)  and is often referred to Ladakh's little brother. But, with its barren land, snow-capped mountains, postcard valleys and glistening skies, it is worthy of more attention. Spiti is a visual delight for every peace seeker out there with prayer flags fluttering everywhere you see.We won't give you a list of things you should see when you explore the middle land, but

 Hitch-hiking is a fun and adventurous way to travel. It gives you some of the best memories and stories to share. But, it can also turn into a nightmare, especially in remote areas of India. We have hitch-hiked almost throughout all the states in India; from Leh to Karnataka, from Gujrat to Darjeeling.Over the good, the bad, the successful and the unsuccessful experiences of hitch-hiking, we jotted down five tips that are sure to get you a ride and an

 I bid farewell to the person who gave me a ride till Kaza from Mudh, shut the car door and waved him goodbye as I watched him drive away. I was again left stranded in the middle of the road looking forward to whatever the day had to unfold. I walked down the road for some 15 minutes before I spotted a café and found myself instantly craving for tea. As I sipped on the blissfully warm tea, I got

 We had to part ways from the next fork on the road just after a small dhaba. It had been some great couple of days with Shilpa and Tarun, my fellow Kaza explorers, and a beautiful memory. They picked up this tall guy with messy hair from Mudh and I managed to stick with them until now. Their next plan was to explore Losar while I had to return to Mudh to pick up my trekking gear as I had

 I was drowning in the dilemma of 'should I or should I not?' while I was sitting under the shade of a tree in the vast barren Spiti valley and waiting to test my luck. So here is how the story goes. It was 2 p.m. and I was sitting just outside Nako village with my backpack, besides the road that would have taken me to Kaza, if I had not missed my 12:30 bus. Voila! I did it again
