First and foremost, very warm Welcome and Thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂
I am Dheeraj Sharma, an avid traveler, a day-night dreamer and a soul wandering in the Himalayas. I have a zest for driving whilst exploring new places & sharing back those travel experiences with the other fellow travelers. I love Spreading Smiles in the Himalayas through DoW Causes & currently enjoying life as a happy traveling soul on this website.
Some 10 years back I realized that living your passion to dive into the unknown and testing your limits of body and soul, really helps in boosting your well being. Since then I never looked back. Frequently, I get on my wheels to hunt this unsatisfied hunger of rejuvenating myself in the endless beauty which the Himalayas does offer to us.
While traveling to the Himalayas, I feel I went through a kind of metamorphosis that led to my reincarnation. I am working hard to materialize the vision & mission of DoW Travel Community with the support of all other members of our community.
Well, professionally I am into Software Development, you can call me a Software Project Lead/Manager now ;)… A couple of years back, I came to live in the USA with my family on a work assignment for my company. As of now enjoying every bit of new life and travel in this beautiful country, the United States of America 🙂
Besides traveling, I enjoy and love my work to the core, trying to be ever competitive in challenges offered to me in my professional life. Personally, Cricket, Computers, Netflix and Hollywood Movies always find special attention in my day to day life. Before I die, I would love to see the vision of DoW Community getting materialized where both the Himalayan lives & travelers get benefit from each other. Just as everything starts with a cause, so do this whole chapter of traveling in my life. If you are interested to know more please read the post “Everything has a start…“
One day a thought rippled through my mind for sharing all I learn from travel with the likes of you, hence I choose to start this blog. This Blog (& DoW – Himalayan Travel Community) is simply about my hobby and passion for traveling to the Himalayas and getting connected with them in one or the other form. You can expect experiences, learning, thoughts, tips, guides, routes, maps, suggestions, hotel reviews, travel news, etc. You all are most welcome to join in, be a part of DoW – Himalayan Travel Community and share your comments, experiences, thoughts, suggestions etc or any stuff related to traveling, driving, dining, riding, etc.
The vision of my blog is to help travelers, backpackers & tourists from all walks of life in planning memorable trips to the Himalayas – Smartly, Safely, and Responsibly. It is all about living my passion for travel & driving but at the same time to share as much valuable + more practical Himalayan travel information and experiences as possible with other fellow travelers or tourists in order to help them travel with a difference in the Himalayas…
Since 2009, I have extensively traveled in the Himalayas on my own and hence, carries a vast amount of practical Himalayan travel experience. In the last decade, I have possibly answered 100,000+ questions about traveling to the Himalayas.
