Our travel gears
We are often asked about our preferred travel gears, our photography equipments and what things we carry in our backpacks. As a frequent traveller and travel blogger, we usually keep our backpacks ready. So here we have put together the travel gears we use along with our travel packing list.
The travel gears that we recommend might not work for everyone. Also all travellers have different modes of travel and preferences. This list is the ones that we found best suited for our travel style.
Photography Equipment and Accessories
Agni is the main person behind the beautiful photographs in the website. We use Nikon D7200 DSLR camera.
Lens for the DSLR Camera
For all purpose photography, we use Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm F/3.5-5.6 G ED VR Zoom Lens.
We also have a Wide angle lens – Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X116 Pro DX II Digital Zoom Lens for Nikon DSLR Cameras.
For portrait photography, we use Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50 mm f/1.4G Prime Lens.
Along with the camera, we also carry Sandisk Hi-speed SD Memory Card.
We use Lowepro camera Bag to carry our camera equipment.
I am more into mobile photography and use Google Pixel 3 for capturing the moments. And we must say, we are quite satisfied with its performance in low light as well.
As most of the time, we are on the go and also have to meet work deadlines; we carry a MacBook Air with us. We find Macbook Air quite handy and also light weight.
Travel Backpacks and luggage
We usually prefer to carry backpacks to suitcases. For long trips we carry our Quechua Forclaz 60 L Backpack. It is sturdy with wide compression straps and proper back support that is quite required for carrying them.
For weekend trips or short trips, we carry a smaller rucksack of 30 L from Quechua.

There is a subtle charm about Cherrapunjee (also spelt as Cherrapunji) that makes me feel peaceful and at home there. Like many of us, my first introduction to Cherrapunjee was through my textbooks where we learnt that Cherrapunjee is the place to receive the highest...
“There is a village in Meghalaya where people have a tune instead of a name” – We had heard this from our guide in Cherrapunjee when we had visited Meghalaya for the first time in 2012. I had wanted to visit the village on that trip itself, but we were told that...
Have you ever walked on a bamboo skywalk with the cliff on one side and the gorge on the other? You look down and can see the endless abyss beneath. This is said to be one of the scariest treks in Meghalaya. Scariest or not, I do not know, but the experience of the...
Namaste! Is it just a salutation and a way of greeting each other? Does it have any deeper significance? Indian culture is a complex and chaotic mixture of various rituals and traditions just like most of its cities and towns. But behind these mind-boggling practices...
Have you ever visited a place and felt that you have come to a fairyland? A place that you had imagined while reading bedtime stories during your childhood? That is what we felt about Langkawet, a small village in Meghalaya. After our crazy trip to Cherrapunjee and...
The place is undoubtedly a paradise. It is a place that simply takes our breath away. It is true when they say that the best sight comes after the toughest climb. In the case of Nongriat Trek, it is climbing down and up along 3500 steps approximately that brings us to...
