The Sleeping Buddha – Nepal

Amazing things happen when Men and Mountains meet. I had trekked to Sandakphu, West Bengal, India [12000 feet] with Youth Hostel Association of India [YHAI]. More than the climb I was fascinated about the view of Mt. Kanchenjunga under Full-moon light. 25th December, 2015 was supposed to be the Full-moon night. I had selected the Trek batch dates in a way to be on Sandakphu top on the 25th. The range is most commonly known as the “Sleeping Buddha” as it looks like the same in imagination of religious people of India. This range consists of...

Sunrise in Nepal

Mountains know no boundaries. I took this picture at Tumling, Nepal while on a trek to Sandakphu, West Bengal last December with Youth Hostel Associations of India [YHAI]. The beauty of Sandakphu trek was that I constantly moved between India and Nepal. Mountains do not ask for a passport. They just ask for free-will and some guts. Tumling, Nepal was my second camp during the trek. I reached there around 15:00 hours and it was pleasingly cold then. The camp leader informed me about the small hill behind our rooms from where the Sunrise was...

Life in Durbar Square, Kathmandu

Posted by on 11:38 am in Nepal, Spotlight | 3 comments

My first impressions of Kathmandu were nothing to write home about. Scenes of suicidal drivers hysterically tooting loud horns, buffalos crossing the road and open sewers reeking of stale urine did very little to impress me, as I sat speechless in a rattling tuk tuk, swerving its way through the crowded, chaotic labyrinths of Thamel, Kathmandu. Even more shocking was the bus station. I was horrified at the scene I was witnessing that very second. Hundreds of men squashed themselves into a rusty, blue and white striped bus that clearly could...

Lumbini: the Buddhist Mecca

Posted by on 10:12 am in Nepal, Spotlight | 0 comments

It was my long standing desire to ride across the snowy Himalayan ranges on my motorcycle and after a long time of planning holidays, finances and logistics, I was well on my way towards the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal. I rode my bike into Sanauli village in Uttar Pradesh, India’s most populated state on the busy Indo-Nepal border. Though a small, largely underdeveloped one-street town, Sanauli offers all the services that a tourist would possibly need: money changers, travel agents, import-export agents, cyber café, hotels, restaurants,...

Obituary: Sir Edmund Hillary

Posted by on 3:29 pm in ITKT Blogs, Nepal, New Zealand | 2 comments

It’s always sad when one of your heroes dies. For anybody who doesn’t know, Sir Edmund Hilary passed away today at 88. Along with his sherpa Tenzeng Norgay, he was the first man to summit Mt. Everest in 1953. Growing up I always had a fascination with men like Hillary, Roald Amundsen and other great explorers. They are important to travel because they push the boundaries of the known world. Maybe that isn’t always the best thing for places that are pristine and untouched. The Wall Mart at 23,000 on Everest also known as Base...
