Kalyan is a traveler who loves routes outside the traditional circuits and believe (with good reason) to discover real gems just away from the crowds of tourists in the queue. Kalyan has ridden elephants through the jungles of Kaziranga, explored the mysteries of Bhutan, sailed to Andaman & Nicobar Islands, sipped his way through the Dal Lake in Srinagar, shared the night under the stars in Shimla, followed footsteps of Shah Jahan though Agra, communed with nature as the sun rose over the Kanchenjunga from Tiger Hill, found his center on the summit of the rocky Hill top of Darjeeling, and soaked up an exquisite sunset over the seas of Bay of Bengal. He always looks for WOW moments around the world among the local people, cuisine or across the streets to share with travel freaks everywhere.
