Road Trip from Chandigarh to Nagaland and around

Most of my travel plans are made in an instant. When my friend invited me to experience whats it like to drive to the north east, I instantly said yes and started packing. The next morning I dumped two bags of equipment and few clothes in his white Tata Safari and we started our journey from Chandigarh.  We drove through ten states, covering a total distance of around 7000km.

These are the places we drove through.

Chandigarh – Delhi – Agra – Varanasi – Bodhgaya – Bhagalpur, Bihar (Craziest stretch) – Siliguri – Guwahati – Dimapur –  Kohima – Khonoma – Shillong – Dawki – Mawlynnong – Guwahati – Siliguri – Kalimpong – Gangtok – Kalimpong – Siliguri – Kushinagar – Lucknow – Agra – Delhi – Chandigarh

Here are few pictures from our journey. To my surprize, I met Lama Rockpa from Komic monastery of Spiti at Bodhgaya. He was one of the ten monks to spend the harsh winter at 14500ft at Komic Monastary. I met him while hiking during my winter stay in Spiti for my long term project, Life in Spiti.
