Nepal, Himalayas


We are pepped up every month. We brain-storm around several topics. We pick one based on relevance. We discuss it with brands who approach us. We declare the dates. We invest a whole lot of energy into our discussions. And finally, we moderate our chat in many different ways. Who are we and what are we up to every month? We are 4 travel writers, bloggers cum enthu-cutlets who can talk about travel all day. Our passion for traveling and blogging brought us together two years ago and since then we have stuck together for many projects. Thus, we happily call ourselves #travelpals. We organize twitter chats for everyone who is bitten by the travel bug and we aim to spread the positive vibes all around. Follow us here – WETRAVELPALS.


In the last six months, we have done around ten chats but last few chats have been really special because we have started giving prizes to the most engaging participants. A number of brands have initiated conversation with us and the response to giveaways has also been extremely encouraging. 


Here is a quick sneak peek into our latest twitter chat where we partnered with Scout My Trip. The topic was about one of the most fascinating mountain ranges that boasts of many of the Earth’s highest peaks. The topic was very wide, interesting and something which had lots of scope to talk about. We invited participants to discuss ‘anything and everything’ about Himalayas. The chit-chat around the mighty ranges turned out to be super fun and educative.



Himalayas are mysterious. They are gorgeously spell-binding. They are one of the most beautiful gifts of nature. Every little chunk of it spells magic. They have so much about themselves that it is hard to fathom everything about them in one life. The different regions of Himalayas have been inhabited by varied people and many literature, mythologies, and religions have evolved from them. Mankind has always been attracted towards the highest of peaks for they were termed formidable. Initially the shepherds, pilgrims and traders found a way to these loftiest mountains but gradually it became a matter of obsession for the mountaineers because they wanted to conquer the apex of the snow capped peaks. Those who were fueled with the desire to indulge in the alpine wilderness and be lost in nature’s best creations began to be known as travellers. 


I am sure we have all had our first impression about Himalayas but a lot of things change as you travel to different regions and discover more and more about these bountiful ranges. There are many ways to experience the magnanimity. Trekking, hiking and road trips being the favorite these days. The trip to Himalayas is not just a dream trip but it is about many things. The spectacular views, enriching culture and the most humble and toughest people in these higher altitudes change you as a person.


Ladakh or Uttarakhand of Sikkim in India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet are most visited for a tryst with the Himalayas. For the benefit of all, I am sharing all the ten trivia that were shared during the chat. 




The Mighty Himalayas are spread across five countries: Bhutan, China, India, Nepal, and Pakistan.
