Walk in the forest, Kasol – Cyril Lucido Kuhn

Looking down from Rashol Pass (3,250m), between Malana & Rashol. – Cyril Lucido Kuhn

Dear Readers,

Between the 24th of April and the 7th of May, I will be on a 2 week #DigitalDetox

This means that I will not be reachable via any mode of electronic communication, and as a result will not be blogging.

Partially by circumstances, partially by design.

I am going to be travelling with a friend and some of the places that we have chosen to visit have little to no connectivity.

We are begining our travels with a 7 day hike to Har Ki Dun, a beautiful valley in the Western Garhwal Himalaya region. Accompanying us on the hike will be our guide, 2 mules and our Kindles’. We will then be making a quick stop at Amritsar, followed by some time in Kasol & Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh.

I am really looking forward to being connected to nature and spending less time being connected online.

I will definitely be taking a lot of pictures and vlogs to share with all of you when I return. If I am way-overwhelmed by the beauty that surrounds me and cannot contain my excitement, I will try instagramming to share some of it with you. I doubt we will be in areas where the coverage is sufficient, but if I do get a few bars on our second leg of the trip I will instagram you some love.

If you have any suggestions: places to see – books to read – people to visit – bridges to cross, please do comment below and let me know!
