Highlander


About Me


Popularly known as Highlander, I am Akash Deep, the proud son of Hamirpur, Devbhoomi Himachal Pradesh. Traveling has always been my passion . The journey went through different stages as I grew older. It started at the age of 11 by riding my dad's scooter and friends' bikes. The passion for traveling and desire to be a free bird grew in my childhood ever since I used to visit different places with my friends and family by traveling in CAGES . On many occasions, I took one day ride to places like Dharamshala, Manali, Mandi, Rohtang, and many more nearby destinations. The college life of six years in Shimoga (Karnataka), one of the most beautiful places there, brought me even closer to nature, but the beauty of Himachal has lot more to offer and yet to be further explored. The rides have been more smooth & wonderful especially since I have my trustworthy new partner " Royal Enfield electra" aka DARLING, my rides are no longer solitary. I have admired the beauty of Leh, Ladakh, and many remote areas of Himachal together. My journey has started, and I am gearing up with high spirits... and hope it will take me to new heights. Presently I am self employed as a Ayurvedic Medical officer and a Certified Optician in in my home town Hamirpur and feel blessed as I get time for my dream rides.
