You may share your thoughts, feedbacks and opinion, glad to know more from you all.

So the question is Why Should You Rent?

There are some factors you should consider before deciding to buy or rent things, for example:

1. How often you’re going to use that product in future?

2. In case, if you what to sell the purchased product then what will be the value of the product after few years?

3. In today’s world, technology is changing very rapidly, so if we stick to one product for long then we may miss the latest technologies or features trend. Do you wish to remain up to date with latest trend?

4. Are you comfortable in spending money to own things where at the same time on other hand due to this you have to compromise on budget for other important things just to buy a particular product?

5. Are you spending on products that may lose up to half of its value the moment you purchase it?

6. Do you want to experience or use product before actually buying it and then based on your experiences wanted to go ahead to buy it?

7. You already have a particular product with you but you need multiple products at a same time and buying seems difficult option?

If you think about all these points then surely you will get the answer yourself, whether it’s good to rent or buy a particular thing for you at that particular time. Sometimes, it’s better to buy or sometimes it’s good to rent. Moreover, renting gives you an opportunity to invest your money on things which are for long terms or can give you a better return in near future.

This was just some food for thought from us on whether to rent or buy things depending on needs or situations, and we understand there can be many other points as well which can be added in the list, so feel free time put your thoughts on it in the comment section.

Happy Renting

And Then It Snowed

I’ve been on a trip with 3 of my friends last month to the scenic Parvati Valley, have already uploaded few snapshots in one of my earlier posts, and now sharing a small clip from the trip.

On 11 Mar 2017, we went to Tosh and as soon as we reached there, snowfall has started. Tosh is 1-2 miles ahead of Barshaini, and Barshaini is a starting point for one of the famous trek in his area, that is Kheerganga Trek. Our plan was to stay at Kalga, it’s a village near Barshaini, and then to cover the Kheerganga trek next day, but due to heavy snowfall we had to cancel our plan, and had to returned from there without trekking to Kheerganga, back to Manikaran.

If you love to be in the mountains and nature, this could be one of the best places for you to explore.

Long Drives – In the Hills and Snow

Last week, 2 of my friends and I planned a 3 days trip to Kasauli, Chail and Kufri. We started with Kasauli and then went to Kufri and then to Chail and then back to Chandigarh. I’m into traveling and I never get tired of it. I keep on traveling, it could be due to my work reasons or it could be my own planned trips. Here I’m sharing few glimpses with you all from my recent trip to the hills of Himachal.

kasauli-hills-himachal-1

This place is called Kasauli, a small and beautiful hill station, around 60 Km from Chandigarh. We stayed there for a night before heading ahead. The view is clicked from the Hotel’s balcony where I stayed.

From Kasauli, we headed to Kufri, there was snow all over the way, and it is always risky to drive under such circumstances. So I decided to park my car at a safe place, and then we all walked few Km up to Kufri to enjoy this scenic place and nature’s paradise.

So after walking few KMs, we reached Kufri, and the view in Kufri was amazing with snow all over  the place. It had fresh snowfall just an hour back when we reached there.

Here, it’s me with a friend 🙂

Pine trees covered with fresh snowfall in Kufri.

chail-himachal-1

This is Chail, a peaceful, less explored and beautiful hill station, I loved this scenic view all over the way while I was driving there.

We stayed in Chail for a night and then started driving back to Home in the morning. It is always good to spend some quality time in the serenity of nature.

Have a good day all ~ Vikas Sharma

Leh (Ladakh) – Snapshot from my Travels # Part 6

Leh (Ladakh) is one of the most spectacular places one can visit, the place with its wonderful scenic beauty and beautiful monasteries, at an altitude of 3524 metres. If you are adventure lover and love to travel in the hills then it cannot get better anywhere other than this place on earth. It’s a cold desert, you will see less of green, but this is atoned by the beautiful valleys, mountains, different landscape and the hue, color of the place changes with the weather and time of the day; from Kashmir to Leh you get to see all different colors of nature and it’s just beyond expressing in words.

Here’s some more snapshots from my recent travels, images captured in Leh (Ladakh):

Kargil District(Ladakh) – Snapshot from my Travels # Part 5

Here’s some more snapshots from my recent travels, images captured after crossing Zoji La(Kashmir) at the starting point of the District Kargil(Ladakh) from Zoli La side, few miles ahead is a place called Drass which is said to be the coldest inhabited place in India. In Drass, winters are cold with average lows around −22 °C (−10 °F), and as low as −45 °C at the height of winter, which lasts from mid-October to mid-May.

Zoji La and Entrance to Ladakh – Snapshot from my Travels #Part 3

24 Kms(around 15 miles) from Sonamarg and you would be on the world’s most treacherous mountain pass ‘Zoji La’ which is located on the Srinagar-Leh Indian National Highway 1D in the western section of the Himalayas mountain range. The Zoji La connects Kashmir with the district of Ladakh of Indian State – Jammu & Kashmir, the place is such a unique combination of nature’s beauty and its destructive strength, the place has breathtaking views of the Himalayan mountains and one has to experience it to know how it feels to be there, and for me it is such an awesome experience to be there. The snow all over the huge mountains, the frozen river, the carved out snow to make roads, everything about this place is just beautiful and beyond words. The taxi in which I was traveling was going in between ice walls on two sides of a narrow road. For me, it indeed has been one of the most amazing trips till date.

Sharing some snapshots from my travels to this amazingly beautiful place:

PS: I’m not a photographer and just used my phone to capture the beauty of this place.

Sonamarg (Kashmir) – Snapshot from my Travels #Part 2

Sonamarg which means ‘meadow of gold’ is a hill station situated at an altitude of 2800m in Ganderbal district in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, and from here Zoji La Pass is around 24 Km ahead which is one of the highest passes for road transport. It’s a beautiful place where you find yourself amidst snow clad mountains, enchanting natural beauty, greenery and glaciers, the beauty is just ethereal. The moment I reached Sonamarg, I was swept away by the view, though I had no time to stroll around the place but still tried to capture few snapshots of this beautiful place.

For all those adventure loving people who wish to enjoy camping at a hill station, it’s one of the ideal destinations. Situated at a distance of 80 KM from Srinagar, on the Srinagar-Ladakh road, the drive to this place is through the Sindh Valley which presents spectacular facet of countryside in Kashmir.
