The Road Less Travelled – Flash from the past

Flashback: It was certainly a recurring dream that could not be ignored anymore. Except, that this was not just a dream while asleep, it started becoming a driving force every single day. That is what Shankar Ganesh, Co-founder of The Road Less Travelled felt for five months before he decided to put pen to paper, rubber to the road, trekking bags to the hills or whatever it took to set the ball rolling. That is how ‘The Roadless Travelled’ was born, one fine morning in October 2016. Going in the flashback, TRLT is a concept, which has emerged from a true passion …

HOW I GOT LEH’D – Last part of the Journey

Last part of the Journey: The Grand Dewachen in Kaza is placed so beautifully that when I opened my eyes the next morning, I was greeted by a warm mountain looking back at me and saying “Are you ready for another exciting day?” and my response as I stretched on the cozy bed was, “Why not? But can we wait just a little longer so that I can continue to admire you?

Our morning breakfast was very different here. We …

The night we reached Jispa, I took way too long to fall asleep. I realized that it was partly due to the after effects of the long drive, which should ideally have put me to sleep, or probably it was because I slept quite a bit on the drive.

This allowed me to finish writing the previous night itself, giving me time in the morning to …

HOW I GOT LEH’D – PART 3

And so we continue……. In Leh, the early mornings remind me of this amazing brown doughnut topped with blue and white icing. I used to wonder if I could just bite into it, so that I could savour the succulent brown mountains and landscape topped with the bluest of blue skies and specks of cloud. This was my view from my beautiful room at Grand Dragon, on our first day at Leh. Having decided to start our day a little late, we all gathered for a late breakfast that comprised of a complete indian & international spread.  We had two …
