About Us


We are Param and Shikha, a film-making couple. Shikha directs. Param shoots. Apart from movies and photography, we love travelling, nature, wildlife, great food, culture, interestingness. So its but natural this blog was on our minds, and we finally got around to starting it.

Why are we The Untourists?
Because we love being away from crowds and tourists. So we are always looking for that unknown untouristy place or look for untouristy things to do in a popular place. We like to experience, observe, and explore life through our lens, though cultures unknown to us and through authentic foods that we can’t resist, once served, even for a picture!

You can find some of our advertising work here. Param also blogs on advertising creative here.

We use OpenStreetMaps. Why?

Our cameras are a Nikon D800, a Canon EOS 5D, and a Fujifilm XPro1 for digital. For film, we use a Nikon FM3A, a Nikon FM10 and a Canon A1.

We were recently featured here in the Travel & Living Magazine:

  1. These days, it seems I discover a beautiful travel blog every single day. But this is one of the best Indian travel blogs I’ve seen. And I love your photographs. It’s so hard to get good photographs of birds! I’ve found a lot of travel inspiration from your blog.

  6. Choosing unpopular, uncrowded places seems like one of the best mentalities for tourism in my opinion.
    Alternatively, visiting popular destinations during low season is also a good idea.

    Generally, quiet places make a trip more enjoyable!
