Trekkerpedia was a blog child of Amar Shekhar when it was started back in October’2012. Since then, Trekkerpedia has never looked back and has scaled different heights year after another. Today, Trekkerpedia is one of the most famous trekking & traveling blog in Bengaluru, Chennai, Karnataka and Tamilnadu.
Trekkerpedia in 2016:
The year 2016 has been a great year for us. Not only, we welcomed our new adventure travel & trekking members but also, we on-boarded bloggers from different cities like Delhi and Dehradun. Besides, on boarding trekkers and bloggers, we also collaborated with adventure travel companies in 2016 and for the first time, Trekkerpedia listed out Booking Himalayan treks online.
Personal trekking journey of Amar Shekhar the persona behind Trekkerpedia:
I am Amar Shekhar. Meet a traveler, a trekker, an amateur writer & a photographer by passion. I find my spiritual solace in the lap of mother nature. I like sharing my traveling experiences through this blog. I am sure this would be as much helpful to as different blogs where I once used to look out for traveling experiences.
With more writings, I started trying my hands on offbeat accounts like cultural experiences, explorations, historical heritages and scientific reasons behind the beautiful events behind the phenomenal beauty of mother nature like monsoon in western Ghats, ways to see the nature, camping experiences in the wild.
I hope to inspire others get out of their comfort zone and see the world through my eyes. Even if I could be able to connect you spirituality through my tales, I would be happy and surprised to myself too!!!
A plot of places I have been to…..in India & Europe
Getting admitted at Sainik School Bhubaneshwar poured in gallons of adventure and dare to think beyond inside of me. Then I moved over to Kota but most of my times were spent in traveling around on my rickety bicycle and seeing the magnificent forts of Rajasthan. Doing my Engineering from NCR, Delhi, I was never too far from cold holy water of Ganges and valleys of Dehradun.
It was not until my first job in Chennai when I got introduced to the Eastern Ghats as well as Western Ghats. And, I never saw myself having enough out of each new place I went to being it Mahabalipuram, treks in the Western Ghats or through the monsoon rains of Kerala.
I, purposefully, came to Bangalore to explore more of Western Ghats and I must say, I made the best uncanny decision of my life.
In January, 2014, I went to Germany for internship and I had a limitless life there because I already had the best already-made European friends in the world. Within the span of six months I could see half of the European area from old town squares to saxony swiss mountains to over night clubs to days-long camping….
My way of traveling: My experimentals
I like to plan everything before hand from matchbox to road taxes. Nonetheless, the more unplanned-yet-planned the journey would be, the more I enjoy it. I love walking through the narrow streets, sitting alone at the ridge for the sunrise, tasting the last pancake at midnight or just shooting for the perfect picture.
Well, this has also led me to my spinal cord fracture and other time, more than 20 leech bytes all over my body. But, things happen for good I guess.
Where do I myself in upcoming days?
I really don’t know. I feel that life itself is an adventure. If you know where you would be, you probably are missing the otherside of the fence part of your life.
Well, sometimes, I dream of shooting and snaping wilderness; sometimes writing a romantic novel with flares and flavors of adventurism in that or sometimes just losing my identity for days and escaping from the mundane society.
