Hari Krishna Reddy is one of the Gen Z breeds that love to travel and explore places at a leisurely pace and unplanned manner. His life right now is, in fact, what dreams are made of. He is just back from a trip where he rode through the Saach Pass, a 4414 mt high mountain pass in Chamba district, Himachal Pradesh.
However, what makes his trip noteworthy is that Saach Pass happens to be one of the world’s most dangerous roads, and Hari Krishna is the first person from the two Telugu states to have completed the rare feat. The road to Saach is narrow and the terrain tough. It also happens to be the gateway to Pangi Valley, and one can notice many waterfalls on the way. Incidentally, the road happens to be the shortest but toughest route from Chamba to the Killar (170 km).
Hari Krishna himself heard about the Saach Pass from a group of experienced riders at a homestay in Spiti valley and was determined to experience it first-hand. Since the pass was closed due to snow, it was opened in July, and Hari Krishna immediately planned his trip. He says he had to ride through 20-30 meters of snow, through rocks and extreme weather. He narrates that his bike would get stuck in deep snow at times, though the views he got to see were simply amazing.
Next on cards is making Instagram reels and vlogs about his trips and his upcoming trips. He says his next trip is to Goa, where he will be showing Goa beyond the beaches. Hari Krishna has traveled to Coorg, Ladakh, unexplored places in Kashmir, Pune, Mysuru, Chikmaglur, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu, among others on his Royal Enfield Himalayan.
He says he would now love to show his dad what he does though he has been riding for the past ten years. “Even during my childhood, I would get on to the RTC bus and go to random locations,” says Hari Krishna, who recently gave a talk about his trip to Sach Pass at a Meetup at Botanical Garden.
