Empower the Nature Explorer in you

By Husain Khambaty – Cape Schanck

One of the brilliant gifts this world gives us is the ability to explore the land. In today’s fast-paced and digitally dominated world, where screens have become our constant companions, it’s more important than ever to reconnect with the great outdoors. Hiking in nature is not just a leisurely activity; it’s a powerful tool for nurturing both mental and physical health, especially for today’s youth. I use this blog to capture and explore the myriad benefits of hiking in nature and why it should be at the top of every person’s to-do list.


My Chadar Experience

Me and the Chadar

I’m back from the challenging yet most mesmerising and life-altering trek – the “CHADAR TREK“. This post is an attempt to capture my experience and some important life-lessons I was able to come back with. Let me start by admitting that any attempt at capturing this experience in words does not do enough justice to the experience one has in the Himalayas. They’re way too mesmerising.

Chadar” is an indian translation for the word “Blanket” which in this context refers to a Blanket of Ice. I think I found my “zen” at 3060 meters in -30 degrees celsius. The moment I got back to the city I hated it all – the people, the traffic, the noise, the weather, the chaos, the complaints, just about everything. It just didn’t feel right – but well this is the reality I live in and here is where I have to be.


Chadar Trek – Trip of a Lifetime

This year is going to be legendary. I’ve been thinking about doing something adventurous and crazy for a few years but due to work and personal commitments I really haven’t been able to plan one. Last year after going through a bad patch I really thought to myself that I wanted to do something crazy. And then Chadar happened.


One Lifetime is Not Enough

Has anyone ever thought that there are so many things to do and so less time to accomplish them all? Being a techy and with technology changing every second, there is so much to learn and keep learning that surely one lifetime isn’t enough. But out of my little techy world exists an even more huge world that is yet to be discovered and explored, things that need to be done, places to be visited, people to be met, words to be spoken, emotions to be expressed, feelings to be felt, passions to be fought for, food to be eaten… endless list I must say.
