Since 2007, Kunzum has served as an important guide for travellers planning journeys in India and the subcontinent – and some international destinations too.
Kunzum is a high altitude pass in the Lahaul Spiti region of Himachal Pradesh in India. And the inspiration behind the brand that is all about memorable travel experiences. Our journey started in 2007 as a travel blog by writer and photographer, Ajay Jain. And we have crossed many milestones – literally and figuratively – since then.
