MEENAKSHI GUPTA – Travel Writer and Blogger

After teaching Marketing for 12 years, I entered the Tourism Industry as a Marketing Professional promoting Destinations and Travel and Tourism Events. In 2005 joined a travel magazine as a  full-time Editor and a media person for a Travel Trade Fair company.
I have also represented the Singapore Tourism Board for 3 years as their Marketing  Representative for South India.  
With almost 23 years of experience of which 15 years in the Tourism Industry, I am a travel writer, blogger, media professional, digital marketer, Runner, amateur trekker and of course a foodie.
I recently decided to get with the times and started blogging about my travel, food and experiences. As a beginner, it also inspired me to share my trekking stories with fellow trekkers. My stories are documented on

Vision & Mission

To bring stories and experiences from my travels and document them in the blog for ready reference.
My blog also encourages and motivates women to start solo travelling and trekking and know everything about trekking, especially after 40. I started trekking at the age of 47 with ailments like Asthma, High Blood Pressure, Knee issues and Thyroid. As she says If I can do it anyone can do it. Starting with Day Treks she did a Snow Himalayan Summit Kedarkantha of 12500 feet high last year. In 2021 she completed Everest Base Camp at 17500 feet and in 2023 Kashmir Great Lakes Trek at 14200 feet high. 
The blog ‘s solemn goal is to inspire more and more women to take up solo travelling, hiking and trekking, which they aspire to without any inhibition.
