Top Hindi Travel Blogs in India 

Recently desi Traveler featured in a few lists of top travel blogs of India, while I was happy, I was also a bit sad to see no Hindi travel blog in the list. If you read my blog regularly you would have noticed that my English is not very good, and I would easily fail in any English Grammar and Comprehension test. But I blog in English as that is where I feel more comfortable writing and that is where I felt readers are.  I have written only one post in Hindi on this blog which also I later translated into English. But the masses in India still read in Hindi and other languages from Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Punjabi, Bengali, Assamese etc. but we have very few blogs that are regular in travel writing or even if they are regular well known outside their circle.

When I was younger there were a lot of Hindi magazines like Dharmayug, Sarika, Hans, Kadambini, Parag, Nandan, Dinman, Grihshobha etc; these magazines catered to all age groups and interests from children to fiction to literature to current affairs.

But slowly as the readership dwindled each one of them slowly vanished from newsstands, with Bennett Coleman and Company killing the maximum number of Hindi (and even English magazines).  I am not sure how many of these magazines are still alive or when they were given a quiet burial.

Even in blogging space in India while English blogging is alive and kicking and is regularly celebrated it is rarely we hear about bloggers in Hindi and regional languages. My blog desi Traveler has been featured on many lists as one of the top Travel blogs from India, but none of that list includes Hindi blogger. This is kind of strange as some of the Hindi travel blogs are very good and have a very wide readership. So I thought of compiling a list of some of the Hindi travel blogs out there.  I strongly believe that Hindi Travel Bloggers and those who write travel blogs in other Indian languages are doing a great service to the travelers and though they cater to a more desi / niche audience they have their own sphere of influence and readership. Actually, some of these bloggers cover more places than mainstream travel magazines and travel blogs as they really go to offbeat places.

Mind you this is not a complete list of Hindi Travel Blogs in India,  but of the blogs that I have read regularly and admired their writers. I am pretty sure there are much more out there and I would be happy to include any that you point out.

  When I chose desi Traveler as my blog title it was more of a branding exercise, but dear readers meet the real desi Travelers who have crisscrossed India and globe in true desi way:

  1. Manish Kumar:  He first started writing his blog Musafir Hoon Yaron, literally meaning I am a traveler buddies, in 2008 (much before I started dT), and today has more than 250 posts on his blog. He writes about India as well as his travels abroad. I discovered his blog from his awesome series on his Travel to Japan. His blog has been rated as one of the best Hindi blogs by various sites.  Discover his wonderful posts by checking his blog Musafir Hoon Yaron,  he also writes a poetry/music/songs blog here

  2. Manu Prakash Tyagi: Manu is a quintessential traveler; his blog gets more traffic than most English Travel Blogs from India. He travels with his family as well as solo travel on his beloved bike. His series on remote towns in Himachal is epic and a must read for anybody who loves to travel to the Himalayas.

  6. Neeraj Jat: This is one of the most interesting blogs as Neeraj not only writes in great detail about the places he visits, he also gives you details about KM traveled by train, the money spent on travels.  He is very clear he is not a tourist as traveling as a tourist is expensive but traveling as a Ghumakkar ( vagabond) is the real way to travel.

  9. Isht Deo Sankrityaayan:  The beauty of Isht’s blog is that not only he writes in  Hindi he also sprinkles his travel stories with poems and shlokas from ancient literature ranging from Vedas, Ramayan, and Bhakti movement.  Indeed a unique way to describe places that find mention in Indian mythology e.g. Panchawati where Lord Ram has spent some time during his exile. Check his blog इयत्ता– meaning essence of existence  
  10. Tarun Goel : Tarun is in love with the Himalayas and wants to trek to the origin of every single river in Himachal. He regularly treks to the undiscovered places and writes about them. He primarily writes in English and Hindi both, but his true love for the hills is clearly seen in  his Hindi writings when he pours his heart in his mother tongue. Check his blog LoOp-WhOlE and join  him  on  an enchanting journey to the Himalayas.  You will have to search a bit in his blog for Hindi posts but  it will be worth it.

  12. Ghumakkar:  No list on Hindi travel blog can be complete without mentioning Ghumakkar, though not primarily a Hindi blog, it regularly features travelogues written in Hindi by various authors, including some mentioned here.  The importance of Ghumakkar lies in the fact that it has been the first platform where a lot of Hindi bloggers started writing. Started by Nandan Jha, today Ghumakkar is one of the most read travel blogs in India with many Hindi bloggers contributing to the same. I too have contributed posts to Ghumakkar in past though only in English .  Check Ghumakkar here. Ghumakkar Best Hindi Travel Blog India

    • Yes, and most of them travel on their own and have covered places I that are truly offbeat. Some of them are so meticulos in their documetnation that it is as good as a guide book…

  10. After reading some of the Hindi blogs even I feel I would write better in Hindi, but I have the same handicap – just can not get to type in Hindi, though have tried posting some Hindi poems on my blog sometime – of course along with translation.

    • I have been trying to type in Hindi but it becomes very difficult to make the corrections… a lot of bloggers in Indonesia type in Roman Script but use their local language ( Bhasha ? ) for expressing themselves. Apko kya lagta hain aisa karna theek hoga ya fir na idhar kay rahenge na udhar kay ?

  11. Ek do ko codh kar baki sab ko kafi samye se jantha hun sab ek se badakar ek lekhak hain ……..thanks for sharing

  12. एक बहुत बढ़िया संकलन हिंदी ट्रेवल ब्लॉगस का

  13. डियर देसी ट्रैवलर,
    हिंदी के उम्दा ट्रैवल ब्लॉग्स सहेजे हैं आपने इस पोस्ट में। अच्छा लगा देखकर कि अंग्रेज़ी के उम्दा ब्लॉगर को हिंदी बिरादरी का इतना ख्याल है। वैसे, आपका विश्लेषण काफी हद तक सही है कि पाठक आज वर्नेकुलर्स के पास बहुत हैं और उस अनुपात में उनके लिए अच्छी सामग्री हिंदी का लेखक तबका नहीं परोस रहा। इसी तकलीफ से गुजरते हुए मैंने हिंदी में ट्रैवल ब्लॉग शुरू किया था। बिना विज्ञापन, प्रचार और आंकड़ेबाजी में उलझे चुपचाप सिर्फ कन्टेंट जेनेरेशन पर ध्यान जमाया और तसल्ली है कि हिंदी ट्रैवल साहित्य के लिए अपना दो आना दे रही हूं।

    • अलका जी : देसी ट्रवेलर पर आपका हार्दिक स्वागत है. आपका ब्लॉग पड़ा ओर मुझे बहुत अछा लगा, की एक ओर बेहतरीन हिन्न्दी ब्लॉग से मेरा परिचय हुआ है . मुझे लगता था की आप केवल समाचार पत्रआदी के लिए ही लिखती है.., किंतु आपका ब्लॉग बेहद दिलचस्प है. धीरे धीरी आपके ब्लॉग के अन्य लेख भी पढ़ रहा हू. आपका इतिहास प्रेम क़ाबिले
      तारीफ है. धन्यवाद.

  14. अपनी भाषा के इतर हिंदी यात्रा लेखकों की दुनिया में झाँकने के लिए धन्यवाद ! मैंने आज ही आपकी ये पोस्ट देखी। अच्छा लगा अपने और साथी हिंदी ब्लॉगरों के बारे में आपके विचारों को पढ़कर।

    • प्रिय मनीश जी: देसी ट्रवेलर पर आपका स्वागत है, मुझे यकीन है की हिन्दी ब्लोग जलदी ही भारत मैं अंग्रेज़ी ब्लॉगस से ज्यादा पढे जायेंगे

  15. Hello Ji….

    Mere blog ko apni is suchi me shamil karne ke liye aapka shukriya……. अच्छा संकलन किया आपने हिंदी ब्लोगों का ….

    धन्यवाद ….

  16. प्रसाद, हिन्दी के यात्रा ब्लागों की यह सूची बहुत दिलचस्प है. मुझे इसमें शामिल करने के लिए बहुत धन्यवाद 🙂
