Adventure with your Valentine ?

How many couples decide to take an adventurous trip together???

I am often asked by many male Indian trekkers if they could bring their wife along for a trek and even when I tell them its actually really good for a couple to travel or to take on an unknown trail together, they end up coming alone for treks in a fear that they might not be able to enjoy the journey or they might end up risking their closed ones.

Get off your ass and experience with your loved ones

Get off your ass and experience with your loved ones


Here are a few points a couple can keep in mind :

1:) Don’t be afraid to take the risk (but be realistic)

2:) Communicate (do not dominate)

Know your partner better

Know your partner better


3:) Don’t be around your partner 24*7 (“Right Space”)

4:) Prepare the budget well in advance (Don’t mess up with the financial part)

5:) Let people talk (Society loves to talk)

6:) Respect & Romance

Go out there and take an adventure with your loved ones !
(Don’t be afraid to experience something new)
Happy Valentines Day 🙂

The Zanskar Facts You Didn’t Know- Part 1

Humility —-Courage — Humanity

**Padum Village**
is the only town, after Zangla, of the Zanskar Kingdom.
Height : 11,998 feet

Padum means “Lotus-Born”— child appearing in a lotus blossom

Padum Population = 1000 inhabitants
Tourist Season: July, August, Half September and January (if you are doing the frozen zanskar river expediton)
Famous Attraction : Karsha Monastery

When the first truck/lorry arrived in Zanskar, people were afraid to approach it.Some even said that it might kill their traditional values and then a well known monk said we all struggle for life here, busy only for water, fields and wood. Villagers have no time to properly study the Teachings of the Buddha. People in Zanskar need to have an easier life to be able to improve, to have time to study the real truth

Do you know him ??

Today zanskari people live better during the winters with pokari and pipe in a glass room to absorb the heat from the sun & thanks to modern hospitals, less children and mothers die during the delivery of a child.

Thanks to the internet that so many people now want to experience the frozen zanskar river in the winters which has generated jobs for the zanskaris during the winters as guides/porters/cooks.
