I am a Software Engineer by profession, having this deep passion for trekking, travelingand exploring new areas. Traveling to far off places and interacting with genuine people living in different atmospheres, cultures and conditions has always fascinated me. While planning for remote areas that are not commonly traveled by non-locals for travel purposes, one thing I felt strongly was the lack of information on internet. With this blog, I plan to cover some of my travels with the thought that this might be a source of help and motivation for some people sharing the same passion.
For those who are not familiar with Urdu or Persian, Dastnavard is a Persian word that means desert-traveler (dasht for desert and navard for wanderer). Some of my travel pictures are uploaded on Flickr here.
