I really like your pictures and the things you talk about in your posts. I am a diehard mountain lover with special liking to Uttaranchal (Uttarakhand), specially Garhwal.

I must salute your zeal to go to some really deep places.

I couldn't agree more with booknut here. I've been reading some of your posts (I think of them as pictorial narration) about Milam, binsar, munsyaari etc. I'm a big fan by now. I keep googling 'almoraboy' to return now and then. By the way,my roots are from Berinag, and just the mention of Uttarakhand gives me goose bumps, nostalgia a sense of belonging (though I've never stayed there except the odd vacation). Will be visiting this December.Keep up the storytelling, it's addictive.

Hello Akshay,

Enjoi ur trip to Berinag. If possible, even I will try to make it to kumaon in late winters. Being from berinag, I gues you must have seen patal bhuvaneshwar. I find it the most fascinating place in the whole world.

Hi Prashant.

Absolutely.I make it a point to visit Patal Bhuvneswar and the Kali devi mandir at Gangolihaat each time.This time my plan is to visit aimlessly.I want to mingle with a few locals, roam around, admire nature, and try and see prospects for a project close to my heart. It pains me to see that in the internet and jet age, a lot of the hills are still not very developed.I'm very inspired by projects like Villageways ( and am keen to try and see ways of contributing to the upliftment of the kumaon/garhwal region in whatever way I can without disrupting the harmony of the hills.(development doesn't mean cutting trees!!) I guess I am looking for ideas for sustainable projects that will benefit the local people and bring me back in touch with the place that really seems to keep calling me back.
