With exploration at heart, Johnnie Walker is out on a journey of unravelling the unexplored. Walking the uncharted lands, #TheTravellingBillboard brings to you breathtaking views from the hidden gems of India.
From the freezing snowcap mountains to the extreme heat of the deserts, the travelling billboard is on a mission to capture everything that is waiting to be explored.
To inspire a generation to make their own discoveries, we’ve managed to get hold of the best travel photographers. And we set them on a journey to search for the perfect picture that will do justice to this epic journey of the travelling billboard. Will they be able to do so? Well, let’s see.
Nitish Walia, Mohit Behl, Ishita Dharniharka, Zaid Salman and Navaneeth Unnikrishnan began their journey from the closest place to the moon called Moonland Lamayuru village to Rainbow mountains and finally, they chose a place where two streams meet - Sangam, Ladakh.
Sangam literally means “ to meet” its the confluence of River Indus and Zanskar.
Fun Fact: The Zanskar River freezes completely during the winters and is called Chadar (This is the only chadar that doesn’t keep you warm)
The beauty here beats your imagination, doesn’t it?

Exploring Johnny’s Gorge, Andaman
Now that we’re done with the mountains, skies, deserts and rivers, it’s time for Johnnie to explore the world which is deep, down and under. Sumer Verma aka @luminousdeep with his team managed to introduce Johnnie to Johnny! This is the first time a billboard has travelled 100 ft deep under the ocean. How cool is that? After watching this video, I’ve already set my travel goals for 2020.

The Thar Desert - Jaisalmer
Explored by Bobby Joshi, Siddharth Samant and Nishchay Jain it is evident that royalty, forts and stories are some of the elements that make Rajasthan hauntingly beautiful (Quite literally) They started the journey from Kuldhara, a cursed village, which is empty and deserted. There’s nobody residing in the village, but as the sun sets, you can hear voices in this abandoned town. Anyway, post this they continued their journey and witnessed the magic of Kanoi dunes and decided to capture the beauty of the barren.
