Offbeat Kashmir Road Trip with Abhinav Chandel - 7 Days - 06-12 Nov

Kashmir's beauty needs no introduction. The valley is devoured by every tourist who steps foot there. Even with its popularity, Kashmir has innumerable hidden gems that are yet to find the gaze of travellers. This October, join us on an offbeat exploration of one such valley in the heart of Kashmir.

We are heading to Warwan Valley - one of the least known valleys of Kashmir and perhaps the most beautiful and untouched one out there.

This one-of-its-kind road trip / hike will consist of a group of like minded explorers lead by Abhinav Chandel - India's leading Instagrammer - into Jammu & Kashmir's lush tall mountains, beautiful meadows and rivers.

Starting from Pahalgam, over multiple days, we will visit different parts of Warwan valley - staying in local guest houses amidst the best of the landscapes, having picnics by the streams, exploring the trails during day hikes, visiting multiple tiny yet pristine villages, meeting the locals there, and spending time at a hot spring.

Join us for an unforgettable trip to this hidden gem of India.
