I love to travel solo, however, as much as I love it, I have started to realise that my stories are something I wish to share, to inspire lives, to let happiness and peace prevail, in all spheres of life. Traveling is my form of meditation, and I wish to extend my experiences. So here goes “ECO-Travel with Me”. If anything I have ever done or written has inspired you in some way then wish me luck and join my journey!

When you travel with me, be it weekend trips, extended weekend holidays or season based vacations, the journey will introduce you to an alternate style to travel. The idea is to give you an experience of a traveler and not tourist, and also travel responsibly. I promise you an experience that will push your limits and unravel your zeal and passion for travel. Here goes my first one.

February 26-29th 2016: Prashar Lake Trek,  Mandi HP

Its the first time I will be attempting this trek too, and if we are lucky we might get snow 🙂

Prashar Lake lies 49 km north of Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, India. The lake is located at a height of 2730 m above sea level. With deep blue waters, the lake is held sacred to the sage Prashar and he is regarded to have meditated there. Surrounded by snow-capped Dhauladars and Pir Panjal Ranges of the Himalayas and looking down on the fast flowing river Beas.

Prashar Lake gives spectacular views of the Dhauladhars, and gives different shades in every season, is green in the monsoons and white in winters, all images are magical.It is approachable by road in absence of snow, and during this time of the year one gets an easy yet adventurous snow trekking experience.

A Tribe that Vibes; Creating a Culture

“You are Never Prepared for What you Expect, Because Life is Not a Rule Book”

IMG_20140202_023636

The year that has gone by, has left me speechless and spaced out, I am finally starting to question my own reality. With each passing chapter and journey, with the ups and downs that come, we completely forget to do this one thing, and that is to live!

All our lives we keep searching – for happiness, for comfort, for security, for love and for money. As we keep running after one thing, then the other thing, we forget to realize that we are just constantly running after so many things in different directions, with so much inside us that we want to share, we want to release. But what is it that we end up doing? we just let it be. We get back to routine, gulping what life gives us, like we have no choice. We condition ourselves to circumstances created by us.

We just end up depressed and unhappy with our lives, why? Because we don’t have enough money to buy the car we want, or people close to us do not live up to our exceptions, or we don’t find a job of our liking, or we are not doing good enough like our peers.

In this entire scenario, we forget the essence of life itself. Most of us, infact majority of us, I truly feel, give out the world their saddest self, why do people do that when they are worth much more. Because we are conditioned to be selfish, we are conditioned by a certain way of life that we hear, see and think is should be.

As Buddhism preaches, if you do not share your knowledge and experience to the world, it is just a waste. I wish to share my knowledge whatever little I have learnt about finding balance and peace.

Experience is the best teacher, and travel is the best experience!

You are your childhood memories, you are the books you read, the music you listen to, the sport you play, the songs that you dance to, the food that you cook, the paintings that you make, the plants that you grow, the animals that you love. You are not the mark sheet and degrees that you own, the designation you are at, the money you hold in your account, you are not the life that you flaunt but the life that you live!

So come travel with me 🙂 and help me create “The Energy Culture”
