Hola Explorers! Welcome to the world of soulful journeys.
I believe, while asking your travel queries from Google God, you must have stumbled upon my page.
And now that you have landed, let’s take off again for this exploration journey with me.
I am ready to throw some travel inspirations across your way from distant lands, travel tips and tricks learnt after 4 years of travelling across India and unheard stories of people which end up becoming highlights of your memorable escapades.
Hi! I am Niharika (The Iffy Explorer).
My soul loves to indulge in experiences which involve exploring the untrodden, living like a local and knowing the place and its people best by exploring their habitats.
Currently, through my Blog, YouTube channel and Instagram, I narrate my travel experiences for all of you to feel.
After graduating as an Architect, I decided to take up travelling full time. From travel research and freelance photography projects to just being a digital nomad, curiosity keeps me going.
Since my academic days, I have been involving myself in various research projects which made me a travel enthusiast and the exploration bug bit me hard, then onwards.
Following my passion to dig deep, I have worked with various tourism boards and travel brands to create content around unexplored destinations and lifestyles of tribal people. I have spent about 20 days in the offbeat areas of Ladakh including both Kargil and Leh. In 2019 I took a month-long solo backpacking trip to Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh.
I have also been to Pakistan for half-a-day via Kartarpur Gurudwara Corridor. Behind this my motive was to take my grandmother back to her roots.
Unusual, less trodden and conventionally chosen paths excite me the most.
‘Travel to get free from all your fears and insecurities.’
Through all the stories that I am here to tell you, learning from them everytime, about me and a little more about the world.
I started with Travel photography and gradually translated it into words and videos. The aim is to provide you all with a wholesome visual experience about the wilderness of our planet, the history that made us, the architecture that we see, the people that have similar stories as ours, the mountains that speak to everyone and the oceans that keep the power to set us calm.
Connect with me to know about my days in exotic international travel destinations like South Africa, Myanmar and Nepal. For future, international destinations like Tanzania, Moscow, Spain, Greece, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tibet, Namibia, New Zealand, Iceland, Finland, Madagascar and Antarctica are on my bucket list.
