About Me

Stok KangriHi! I’m Umang and I started Travelmax.in as a blog to write my travel stories. Over a period of time, I realized that I liked visiting offbeat locations & indulging in adventure experiences the most.

So, now, I focus on 3 segments of travel. Adventure, Offbeat travel and amazing experiences.

I also try & compile travel tips & Ideas. I create itineraries, list things to do, travel tips and love to suggest where to eat & enjoy the nightlife based on my own experiences. Compiling such tips & ideas allow me to help you plan your trip better and that’s what this blog is all about!

I particularly like exploring mountains and staying in homestays. When I am traveling, talking to locals and savoring local cuisine are my favorite experiences. Of course, admiring the beauty of untouched nature also overwhelms me.

Having an inclination towards trekking, I have completed several treks in the Himalayas.  Two of them were over 15,000 feet. Rupin Pass trek and Stok Kangri peak summit offered me experiences which I would never forget for a lifetime.

I have tried Solo travel. But, prefer traveling with friends, family and strangers as well!

Have fun exploring the website! Feel free to comment and ask me questions!
