“It is always the same with mountains. Once you have lived with them for any length of time, you belong to them. There is no escape.”
– Ruskin Bond, Rain in the Mountains
I am Nomadosauras and this blog is about Sahyadris; about Men, Mountains and the bonds formed in between.
Born and brought up in Mumbai, a stone’s throw from the Sahyadri range, it is indeed strange that my first brush with the world of mountains was through a collection of short stories by Ruskin Bond. He made me fall in love with the simple, flawed people in his stories and, with Mountains. For Mountains weren’t merely the setting of his stories- they were a living, breathing character in their own right.
It was years later that I got an opportunity to explore the mesmerising range that is the Sahyadris. Needless to say, I have been hooked ever since and this is how, A Season Of Mountains, was born.
The blog started out as a collection of my personal experiences on these treks and trips. However, as I started venturing into the lesser known nooks and crannies of the range with my friends, I realised the importance of collecting and sharing credible, up to date information with the community at large.
This brought about a definitive change in the blog’s format- the posts now start with a brief section that covers the essential details, followed by a personal account of the escapade. I also try to share annotated maps and other such resources wherever possible. You can find a non-exhaustive list of the places I have visited over the years in the ‘Trek list‘ page.
As I continue to split my time between other endeavours, there might be periods of inactivity on the blog. But fret not! I am always available on email. Whether you have a question about any trek I have done or you’d just like to say hello, please feel free to get in touch with me through the contact form and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible 🙂
In the meantime, I’d recommend you to grab a cup of coffee, find a nice cozy corner and immerse yourself in my world… in the world of Mountains…
P.S. You can also write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I always look forward to hearing from readers!
