My Travel Bucket List

Every person has the right to dream and it should be there, because dreaming increases your enthusiasm and gives motivation to do that thing. Normal people have wish list and travel bloggers have travel bucket list. Though, the travel bloggers have very long & unique demands for travel. I do have this list, a big list. So here I am listing out some destinations & activities, which I want to explore as early as possible.

In this post I am showcasing only Indian destinations except one, because I want to explore India before exploring foreign countries. When I believe, I can say that “yes I travelled the whole India”, only then I start visiting other countries. So till then, enjoy this post & these places.

1. Hampta Pass Trek

Hampta Pass is on the very first place in my list. I am very excited for this trek. I am just waiting for the right time. Whenever I feel, this is the right time, I would go for it. It can be my group trek or my first solo trek.
Hampta Pass is a beautiful and one of the most famous treks, in the state of Himachal Pradesh. The trek starts from the small village Jobra, situated near Manali and goes through Lahaul & Spiti Valley. It offers stunning view of valleys and snow capped mountains, at an elevation of around 4200 metres above the sea level. It is a moderate trek.

2. Valley of Flowers Trek

Again, there is a trek because trekking is one of my faourite activities to do. I just love trekking. And I love nature thats why I chose this trek, because it gives one of the best and unique experiences of nature. One cannot compare its beauty with other treks.
Valley of Flowers is a valley situated on the way to Badrinath, in the state of Uttarakhand. It provides the variety of flowers and plants. One can also visit the famous pilgrimage destination, Badrinath and the highest Gurudwara in the World, situated at a height of 4632 metres. It is not a challenging trek, but not the easy one also.  

3. Everest Base Camp Trek

Mount Everest, the name defines it all. However, this trek comes at the bottom of my list, but it is must for me. Because this is one of the most challenging treks and I love doing challenging things.
This trek doesn’t need any description, but still I am describing it. Mount Everest is the highest mountain peak in the world, with a total height of 8,848 metres. This trek goes upto to its base, which is called Mount Everest Base Camp. This camp is situated at an elevation of around 5364 metres above the sea level. And the good thing is that travelling to Nepal doesn’t require Visa.

4. Bike road trip from Delhi to Ladakh

I love bike riding. If everything goes according to my way, I can travel whole India by bike. But this would be slightly difficult thats why I have chosen some important places to travel by bike.
This bike road trip will be full of adventure and thrill, which will charge your adrenaline upto the most upper level. The most amazing thing about this trip is that it offers a opportunity to travel through the world’s highest motorable road, i.e., Khardung La pass.

5. Bike road trip from Delhi to Jaisalmer

Well, this would be my second bike road trip. I am from Rajasthan and I love it. I love the culture and festivals of this place. This journey will start from Delhi and will go upto Jaisalmer, by passing through Alwar, Jaipur, Ajmer, Pushkar, Bikaner and Jodhpur. The good thing about this trip is that it starts from the city, then passes through Aravalli ranges and terminates at the barren desert of Thar. Too much variation and too much fun. Isn’t it?

6. Explore Dharamsala & Mcleodganj

I haven’t added other hill stations such as Manali, Nainital, Mussoorie, Ooty, etc because I have already explored these places. However, every place has its own features and attractions, but still I want something different. Dharamsala & Mcleodganj would be perfect for this type of holiday.
Also renowned as Little Tibet of India and Home of Dalai Lama, Dharamsala is one of the most famous hill stations of India. The Indo-tibetian beauty of this place makes this a foriegn type destination in the country. Mcleodganj is situated at the outskirts of Dharamsala. With addition to its height from Dharamsala, it also adds some extra beauty to it.

7. Explore Dzukou Valley, Nagaland

I have never been to North-East India, but I have heard a lot about it. So I will start from Nagaland.
In India, every state has its own story, culture, language, tradition and beauty. So has North-East Indian places. Nagaland also comes in this list and has a very unique culture. 
Dzukou Valley is a stunning valley with rich flora and fauna, situated near the borders of Manipur. One can also do trekking from Dzukou Valley to Zakhama.

8. Explore the beauty of Western Ghats in Maharashtra

I have visited Shirdi in Maharashtra many times, because my family has a strong belief in Sai Baba. And with the every visit to Shirdi, I explored new places like Pune, Mahabhaleshwar, Khandala and many more. So with the help of Sai Baba, I have explored more than half of the Maharashtra. Only some places are left that I want to explore such as Matheran, Solapur, Kalsubai, Kaas Pleateau, etc. 
Western Ghats, also known as Sahyadri Ranges, is one of the most amazing places to visit in India. It is prominent as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and also one of the Hottest Hotspots of biological diversity in the world.  

9. Explore God’s Own Country, Kerala

I have visited South India, but never been to Kerala. Many people including friends and family members recommended me that I should go to Kerala. The place is really awesome. I have heard some myths about South India and their people, but when I visited there I didn’t feel all those things. I found it good.
Kerala, also famous as God’s own country, the state has a long list of amazing places such as Allepey, Munnar, Thekkady, Chembra Peak and much more.

10. Enjoy Sunburn at Goa

I have attended some music concerts at Delhi NCR, but attending a music concert/festival at Goa is a different thing. It has its own madness, which one cannot feel or enjoy at any other place. 

Sunburn + Hardwell/Martin Garrix + New Year’s Eve + Goa = Deadliest Combination.

P.S. This list is for my upcoming five years. Currently, I am not a full time traveller. So, according to me this would be good for me. 🙂

Happy Travelling!!
