Shutterbugs List for Chadar Trek: Top 15 (Strictly for those who love photography)

Don’t Forget to Click (Photography during Chadar Trek)

1:) Himalayas from your flight to Leh: While you are in your aircraft remember to take the seat on the right hand side of the plane and you might just be too delighted to click the Himalayas from that height and a view of some peaks like Nanda Devi & various other un-named peaks if you can identify them.

2:) Lingshed village/Lingshed Solar School: You would not want to miss this if you are on Chadar and you would fall in love with the place when you see how kids study with bare-minimum study materials or should I even add the infrastructure/funding.

  1. I think that what you published made a ton of sense.

    However, what about this? what if you typed a catchier title?

    I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t solid., however what
    if you added a title to maybe get people’s attention? I mean Shutterbugs List for Chadar Trek: Top 15 (Strictly for those who love photography) – Rohit Khattar is a little boring. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news titles to grab people to open the
    links. You might add a video or a related pic
    or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.

    • hey !
      happy that my blog grabbed your attention.
      Thanks for the suggestions.. Really appreciate it.
      Now where can I get in touch with you ?!!
      Please send me your email id.
