My Story

Hello! Welcome to Himalayan Gypsy!

My name is Abhishek Saraswat, an award-winning travel photographer, and blogger based in India.

I am an adventure freak and a digital nomad known to the internet world as Himalayan Gypsy, who likes to document India, its culture, heritage & architecture through his pictures and writes about his experiences on his blog.

A banker by profession and a traveler by heart, I have been exploring India since my childhood during family vacations and school picnics which gradually turned into solo trips, volunteer & experiential travel, road trips, and photo tours. 

Today my work is known to the world through my numerous pictures published, featured, and exhibited in various popular magazines like DiscoverIndia, Natgeo Traveller India, Asian Photography Magazine, Chiiz Magazine, Nikon India, Wildlife India, etc.

In the latest news, I was featured as one of the expert photographers of Uttarakhand by Vivo India during the launch of the Vivo X70 series in Oct 2021. 

Also in the same year, I had secured the third position in the Red Rabbit Photography Competition (18+ category) at Valley of Words International Literature and Arts Festival.

In early 2021 during a photo tour of Tehri Garhwal with the Times of India Group, my photo work shot was also exhibited at the Tehri Lake Festival in Uttarakhand. 

Earlier my travel blog himalayan-gypsy.in was also longlisted for the India Responsible Tourism Awards 2020 in the category of Best Communicators.
