“…because life is too exciting to not share.”
Hullo! I’m Shikha, the founder of Nomad Scribblings, a travel blog about India. I’m a solo traveller in search of surprises in India. Here, on my blog, you will find my travel stories from across India, photo essays that capture my trips – right from the cold, high altitude deserts of Spiti to the solitary beaches of Diu to the surprisingly beautiful backwaters of Kerala. Plus, the very enchanting north-eastern India. More often than note, you’ll find anecdotes from my solo trips here.

Quite famous for its hash, Kasol sees a lot of trance party and the lovers of it. But yeah, there is more to it. A lot more to it if you are as city-sick (sick of city) as I am.
