The next day early morning, I took a bus to Udaipur. On reaching I was searching for a package tour to cover the places In limited time. But due to high prices, I decided to cover them on my own. I Covered Lake Palace, City Palace, Bagore ki Haveli, Jagdish Temple, Lake Pichola, Jag Mandir Palace, Fateh Sagar Lake, Moti Magri, Sahelion ki Bari. Unfortunately, I missed out on my target list of places like Sajjangarh Palace, Kumbhalgarh Fort, Ek Ling Nath Ji.
DAY 5 - UDAIPUR- THE VENICE OF EAST/ROMANTIC CITY
DAY 8 - Udaipur - the city of lakesIt is amazing how one can experience both sides of modern culture and history at the same time in this city. City Palace which is currently a museum gives you an insight to the rich history of the land. By nightfall, Lake Pichola is a man made beauty, the entire area is well lit by pink and yellow lights, it's a treat to the eyes. There are restaurants at the river front lit only with candles, one can enjoy a pleasant evening here, you can also go on a boat ride at sunset. Jagdish temple, Jag Mandir, Saheliyon ki Bari and Bagore-ki-Haveli are some of the other places to visit.
Day 1 - Bangalore to Mumbai to UdaipurThe journey started from Bangalore on a luxury sleeper bus (as the trip was planned last minute). You can also take a flight to Udaipur directly. I reached Mumbai after 16 hours. I had a couple of hours to spare before my bus to Udaipur, so I freshened up in a restaurant, filled up my stomach and took some snacks for the road. 750 kms and 13 hours later, I reached the city of lakes.
Udaipur, the City of Lakes is one of the most beautiful cities in India. With its stunning lake, Heritage Resorts, Luxurious hotels and the traditional Rajasthani culture; Udaipur makes for the perfect travel destination. However, if you’re done exploring this gem, there are many places to visit near Udaipur.
Udaipur is rightly called the Venice of the East. There are so many luxurious heritage resorts in here that its tough to choose the best hotel for a stay! From havelis to grand palaces, to humble homestays; the options are many. Below are some of the best hotels in Udaipur!
Udaipur remains one of the best places in Rajasthan for a romantic escape. Fondly called the Venice of the East, Udaipur makes for a true luxury escape, with its beautiful properties, serene lanes and heritage palaces. The pristine Lake Pichola makes this city even more amazing. There’s only one palace located in the midst of Lake Pichola, which is Taj Lake Palace. The mesmerising resort is truly one of a kind! A perfect backdrop for royal weddings & magical honeymoons, the Taj Lake Palace is incomparable.

Also called Amdavad, this place happened to be the former capital of the state of Gujarat. The third largest of all the ...
Returned back to ahmedabad on next morning.Hope you enjoyed .instagram id : @gj1rider follow for more stories. and please give me suggestions so that i can keep in mind.
It was an instant plan , next day was sunday and we decided to make a visit to lion safari park which was recently opened in DHARI.
If I mention beautiful Dargahs, quaint mosques, museums, lovely havelis and a market serving mouthwatering nihari, kulcha and tandoori chicken, you’ll think that I am talking about Delhi. But no, this is not the Capital of India but the capital of Gujarat, Ahmedabad. Recently declared the first Indian World Heritage City by UNESCO, Ahmedabad holds everything that hides in Delhi along with bustling night markets, culinary culture and scattered monuments in every corner of the city Ahmedabad has something that Delhi lacks and it is the safety that makes traveling here an extraordinary affair.
The nearest metro city is Ahmedabad, 90 km and about 2 ½ hours’ drive. The airport at Ahmedabad has domestic and international flights. Ahmedabad is also a convenient railway junction, connected across India. The nearest railhead 30 km away is Viramgam, is connected to Mumbai.
I started my trip from Ahmedabad, took a flight to Delhi. The adventure started from Ahmedabad itself as our flight got cancelled luckily we were able to book other flight on the same day thanks to GoAir. I with my friend reached New Delhi around 12 noon. Our bus to Manali from Delhi was at 22:30. We managed to book a hotel near airport where we passed our half day.The ISBT bus stop from airport is around 25kms, we took airport metro from Delhi Airport to reach ISBTReaching ISBT bus stop : For catching metro from airport one has to reach aerocity metro station which can be easily reached by shuttles operating at airport. Catch metro from Aerocity to New Delhi and change from New Delhi to ISBT. The bus stop is just outside the metro staion,you can reach easily as it is mentioned every where. We reached ISBT bus stop at around 21:00 hrs. where we met our second friend. We had our meal in McD and boarded our bus at 22:30 hrs. The bus was Tata Himgaurav HRTC which was not good as Volvo.
The Walled City of Ahmedabad, founded by Sultan Ahmed Shah in the 15th century, has been declared India’s first World Heritage City. The World Heritage Committee (WHC) of UNESCO announced it on Twitter on Saturday after a meeting in Krakow, Poland. Ahmedabad was in the race for the prestigious title with Delhi and Mumbai.This declaration was hailed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief Amit Shah and Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani.
day 5 i woke up and look outside window then i found that we reached at Baroda. from Baroda Ahmadabad is 100 km so get up and waiting for home to come! and then we reached Ahmadabad at 9:00 am in morning. so i have not mentioned elephant point, table top etc because i was not gone there, also those places are worth to visit but better next time. life gives us opportunity but thing is that we are too busy with making money or something else, just grab opportunity to travel, to explore, to explore yourself! go out and see the world, it has so many things to offer you, it will give you good as well as bad experience just take it and go for another one!! i hope you guys enjoy reading this, and sorry for late post because i was busy with something! do comment your views and query, i wold like to answer you all. this is Akshay says bye for now i'll catch you in next one till then you take care and travel well!
so it was 8th January 2017 and i was all set to leave Ahmadabad, as we were traveling via bus so there was not a big problem to be on time. (*privet bus for travelers) and i decided to set in cabin as i want to enjoy scenery and explore the roads. so we left Ahmadabad around 2:00 pm, i know it's a bit awkward time to leave place but that's okay as we don't have any time issue. distance between Ahmadabad to Mahabaleshwar is 745 km via NH48 which also contains toll road, 823 km via NH60 and NH48 and 854 km from NE1, NH48 and NH60. we chose the shortest on 745 km via NH48.now those who had traveled to Gujarat knows that roads in Gujarat are absolutely amazing, just pull the throttle and live the moment! so it took us around 16 hours to reach Mahabaleshwar. our route was Ahmadabad-Baroda-Surat-Mumbai-Pune-Mahabaleshwar, we used both expressway to make journey comfortable and fast! (*Ahmadabad-Baroda expressway and Mumbai-Pune expressway) the one who love road trip will love this highway specially after Pune, as ghat section start. i had seen one of the best sunrise of my life on Mumbai-Pune expressway! just don't miss sunset and sunrise on this kind of roads!
The road from Ahmedabad to Kutch is filled with lot of fun and complimentary scenes which makes is a perfect road for going on a road trip. The road is complemented with some great sceneries and endless expanse of the white desert which is complimented by the colorful life of the local people of Kutch. The road is almost 381 kms long and a best one to go on a bike trip.

Popular, colourful and culturally rich, Jodhpur is one of Rajasthan's most beautiful cities. It is also known as the Sun...
As soon as I reached I rushed to cover the 3 major places on my list - Mehrangarh Fort, Umaid Bhawan Palace, and Jaswant Thada. I covered everything in a rush before hitting the train for Jaisalmer.
Don’t forget to try Kachoris and Mirchi Vada in Jodhpur. You can get street food anywhere in the city especially outside the fort.
Day 7 - Jodhpur - the Blue CityAlthough a city, Jodhpur still breathes the royalty that once existed. Right from the grand Mehrangarh fort to Umaid Bhavan, this city has contained its culture and tradition. Visit one of the roof top restaurants surrounding the fort for a spectacular night view of the fort on one side and the iconic Clock Tower on the other. Go zip lining from the fort which takes an hour, have delightful pani puris and go street shopping. The blue houses are extremely difficult to find, start walking the lanes around the fort and if you are in luck, you might find one.Jaswant Thada, Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park, Pukhraj Durry Udhyog and Mandore Gardens are some places to visit. Circling back to the start, I headed to Udaipur in an overnight bus.
DAY 4 - JODHPUR - THE BLUE CITY
A royal start to your married life
A sea of blue rooftops, Jodhpur is magnificent. The second largest city in Rajasthan, the blue city takes your breath away with every corner. The domineering Mehrangarh Fort sits atop the city and frames the city skyline with pride. At the base of the fort lie blue houses in all shapes and sizes in a tangle of winding, glittering, medieval streets. Jodhpur is endearing and intimidating at the same time and no trip to Rajasthan is complete without visiting this rare gem!What to see1. Start with a visit to Jodhpur's robust Mehrangarh Fort. A magnificent spectacle and an architectural masterpiece, the fort gives you a glimpse into the luxe lifestyle of the kings and queens of bygone eras. The timings to visit the fort are between 9am to 5pm. The entrance fees is ₹100. Still camera fees is also ₹100 while video camera fees is ₹200.2. Visit five uniquely different areas of the fort, Moti Mahal (pearl-coloured), Sheesh Mahal (hall of mirrors), Phool Mahal (hall of flowers), Zenana Deodi (the queen's chambers) and Chamunda Mataji Temple (the temple of the queen's favourite goddess).3. Jaswant Thada, royal cenotaphs built in marble are just a kilometre walk from the fort. You can visit the picturesque location by paying a mere ₹30 as entrance fees. Camera fees is ₹25 and it is open from 8am to 6pm.
Next morning I left for Jodhpur around 270kms from Udaipur . Reached jodhpur around 3pm I checked in to Patwa Haveli near sarafa Bazar which was quite close to other tourist spots .That day I visited the Kaylana lake , an artificial lake built by Maharana Pratap Singh in 1872 . I sat there with silence when the sun was about to set , the bird were sleeping , the wind was still and it looked like I was floating on glass and I was the one with nature flowing in its sedateness . Quite tired with day long labour , I preferred loitering around the bazaar , interactng with the locals and ending my day with a delicious Butter Chicken and Lachcha Parathe and a peaceful slumber .
Vlog 3: Sun City Jodhpur
Mehrangarh Fort:Mehrangarh Fort located in Jodhpur is one of the largest forts in India, You can see the fort from anywhere in the city. you have to cross seven gates to reach the fort. These gates still bears the marks of various battles fought especially the second gate which stands tall even after the canon ball hit. The fort contains huge palaces, courtyards, Galleries & Temples. you can also see the entire city from the top & wonder why these houses were painted blue & Why the city is called blue city.Jaswant Thada :A memorial for a father by son – No one heard right ?

One of Gujarat's most beautiful places, Kutch is nature's masterpiece. The vast barren land with spurts of colour is an ...
No doubt, Kutch is a nagging dream for everyone. Ever since people have seen those beautifully shot Amitabh Bachchan ads about Gujarat, the love for Kutch in particular, has been drawn more powerfully. Well, to tell you the truth, Kutch is gorgeous, and is famous for a few more things than one can imagine.
The white salt desert should be a major reason why you should visit this place. A trip during winter is recommended as the place comes alive. The Rann Festival which is organised during the months of December and February attracts huge crowds. However, if you want to avoid crowds, visit the place after the peak season. The area is known for various crafts, embroidery work as well as animal sanctuaries. You can also pay a visit to Bhuj before Kutch. The beautiful beach there is sure to be relaxing. The alleys with the typical houses and buildings are the best attractions. These have traditional Gujarati styles of architecture and designs on them which tell you a lot about their building styles and how it has evolved from the earlier days. This is no doubt one of the best weekend getaways from Ahmedabad. The whole town is built around the Bhuiyo Dungar Hill from where it derives the name. The other attractions here are the Aina Mahal, The Kutch Museum, which is known to be the oldest here and the bell tower in the Prag Mahal.Distance from Ahmadabad - 400 Km
6. Kutch: While talking about places to visit in the monsoon in India, one cannot forget the mesmerizing landscapes of Kutch. Deemed as the largest salt desert in India, the Great Rann of Kutch is a carpet of the crystal as far as the eyes can see. The region is inhabited by tribal communities, and their culture and traditions draw a large number of tourists to their land. Every year the Rann Mahotsav turns these barren lands to a myriad coloured kaleidoscope with its three month long festivities. In addition to its rich cultural diversity, Kutch is also a land of adventure. The very famous wildlife safaris, rappelling, and trekking are thrilling experiences to look out for. In order to reach Kutch, Kutch Express is available from Bombay via Ahmedabad to Gandhidham.
Dropping at Bhuj, i got a car that took a thousand to my place of stay in Kutch, the Rann Homestay. Finalllyyy much awaited Kutch! Hell tired from the journey i dozed off to sleep. It was one in the afternoon when i woke up! The sun beaming high up in the sky, no sign of cool weather, the tents swaying to the tune of the wind, sight of arid spaces all around, but the best view out of my bhunga or hut was the lunch being laid out in buffet! chawal, roti, ghee, gur, two types of sabzi, daal and papad! Filling my tummy with as much food as possible, i got dressed to visit the white desert! since the home-stay was far, i had to avail some conveyance. at the site, one needs a permit from the tourist facilitation center and pay 100 per person to take you up to a certain spot from where again you got to walk or ride the camel/camel cart to view the white desert ultimately!
I and my 2 office friends started the trip from ahmedabad by our own car. We started our journey 8 am in morning towards MATA NO MADH a very famous temple of Ashapura mata in kutch. We riched there by 6pm and then we headed towrds NARAYAN SAROVAR which is 43km from mata no madh. NARAYAN sarovar is the last place before pakistan border and after narayan sarovar there is Arabian sea and from there pakistan border is just 40km. There is a KOTESHWAR temple also. Here you will find desert on the one side and arabian sea in the other side which is very amazing.
Kutch Bustard SanctuaryIf you’re trailing the Great Indian bustard, Lesser florican bustard, and Macqueen’s Bustard, you can’t miss this sanctuary. The two-square-kilometre area was declared a sanctuary for the Great Indian bustard in 1992 and it is the only place it is found.The Details: The nearest airport is Bhuj, 110 kilometres away; the railway station is Nalia, 20 kilometres. You can stay at Radisson Hotel Kandla (radisson. com) in Gandhidham. The entry to the sanctuary is free on all days.Watch out for the Great Indian Bustard at the Kutch Bustard Sanctuary.Flamingo CityThe world’s largest flamingo colony, Flamingo City is a lake in the desert where half a million flamingos fly to every year to nest. The best time to visit the area is in the winter months when it becomes the breeding ground for flamingos, pelicans, and avocets.The Details: You can only visit the area on a camel. The starting point is Khavda, 66 kilometres from Bhuj. You can take a flight from Mumbai to Bhuj or take the Bhuj Express or the Kutch Express from Ahmedabad. You can stay at City The VIllage Resort (citythevillage.com) in Bhuj.
Kutch is full of Culture,communicative people, mouth watering food and alluring places.There were so many attractive places in this district to visit which we had covered in 4 days.The "Bandhni" handicrafts works done by Gujarati People is a must buy item from Bhuj.Talking about Gujarati food we had tried from street foods to good restaurant of Bhuj,it was really tasteful and you should try it.The temperature is good between December and Feb so we had planned our trip during that time.I read somewhere that Bhuj is Jaisalmer of Gujarat ,after reaching there i found it was correct as the temperature and location at Indo-pakistan border is quite similar with Jaisalmer.
A must visit place especially during Rann of Kutch Utsav. Enjoy walking on the white desert, the culture of Kutch and the beauty of Tent City. One can shop for authentic craftswork and other items here at Hodka. try visiting this place during the full moon day to enjoy the safari in white desert twice.

Popularly known as Baroda, Vadodara is great travel destination for history buffs and art enthusiasts. The town is known...
Day 13: September 29, 2015:I started late at baroda and decided to enter karnataka by evening. The journey was going to be long. I left at 830 AM after breakfast and hit the highway.It took about 7 hours to reach the outskirts of Mumbai. I lost my way on the outskirts and began asking for directions. Finally, when i touched the road towards Panvel, it was about 5PM. I accidentally got onto the Express-Way and a cop was waiting to "mug" me off some money in the name of bribe.After an hours ordeal with the cop and having lost money, I found the road towards Pune and continued my journey.Almost 7 PM when I arrived on the outskirts of Pune. Time to check into a hotel.Day 14: September 30, 2015:I left Pune at 9 AM and began riding towards bangalore. The first leg of the return went peacefully as I reached the outskirts of Kolhapur. A small break for lime soda and I immediately continued riding towards Belgaum. As i crossed Belgaum it was about 2:30 PM.I knew that reaching bangalore by 10 or 11 PM was easy if I continued without a break. Just as I crossed Hubli an near Havery, the traffic cops had blocked the highway and diverted traffic towards Ranebennur and from there I had to deviate towards Davanagere. When I reached Davanagere, it was almost 630PM, due to the road condition through the villages.I had a tea and continued towards Tumkur, It was almost 10 PM when I was a few kilometers before Tumkur town. What I hadn't seen in more than a week came back to haunt me. The rain gods came down heavily and the remaining 80 kms to reach home was spent well in getting drenched.When I finally entered bangalore, it was 1145 PM. I had travelled a total of 940 kms in a little less 15 hours. I was trembling and couldn't stand on my feet as the last day journey had taken a toll on me.Finally, I had completed a full 6200 odd kms in about 15 days, going through a lot of "hardship", meeting a few friends, visiting a few places and experiencing unknown roads of the country.It is time to end the blog with a note that everyone should travel to some unknown destination by their own at some point of time in their lives.
We had a plan to halt again at Ahmedabad, but "We the Riders" aren't only riders, we are "Super Riders". We had started from Bhuj at 8 am. Our breaks were scheduled after every 100 kms, But the exciting part was that we were very close to Ahmedabad in the afternoon itself, we had covered almost 75% of the target destination....."Hmm that's exciting, we can cover 100 kms more, so that we would be close to Mumbai and the next day ride wouldn't be hectic"...Chalo let's cover 100kms more and halt at Vadodara, we decided while resting under a tree. In the evening, we had reached Vadodara to find there was heavy traffic in the city, we were dying to get a hotel. Finally we got one at the Airport....the name itself was Hotel Airport. The stay was luxurious and the comforts were much needed after this long ride. We had stayed there for a night.Day 7 - Vadodara to Mumbai
Best mong places to visit near Ahmedabad within 100 kms is the teeming city of Vadodara which offers a refreshing change of scenery. Palaces, historical monuments, museums and beautiful gardens are the city’s pride. A road trip is the perfect way to set about this journey when the weekend comes calling.Distance from Ahmadabad - 111 KmPlaces to Visit near Ahmadabad Within 200 Kms

The false grave in the tomb chamber the real one is underground
Now it was time for us to head back to Mumbai. We started riding back and at Bhuj we got our bike serviced and by night we could reach Vadodara.Next day we again started early with a motive to reach Mumbai by night. We could reach Daman by evening and again it being a union territory we had some good beers to charge ourselves for the one final time for the trip.
Early morning, the next day we were headed back to Mumbai which is nearly 800 Kms away. We did a stop-over at Vadodara, for the night, where we enjoyed the street food, before proceeding to Mumbai. Having visited both the Legends, at Dandi, and the Lions, at Gir, we brought our road trip through Saurashtra to a successful end.
It took us a lifetime to plan, cancel, re-plan and then reschedule the most cliched yet epic journey to the mountains of the Ladakh range.12 long days of mesmerizing ever changing landscapes . Mountains left us awestruck. Enormous rivers followed us everywhere.It is one of those amazingly beautiful places I believe where even the simplest of the camera can give you a pro-level splendid nature photo.Sit back , relax and enjoy Ladakh through my lens.

Aradhana Dham, Jamnagar
Jamnagar - Venice of Gujarat Still having old architectural marvels... Presently come up due to reliance and essar Places to visit lakhota lake lakhota lake museum main palace Bedi port - famous for corels Kachori - famous eatry Having dominos , subway only Mc Donalds, pizza hut n much more yet to come....
Jamnagar has been synonymous to jalebi and fafda for all the other communities at large. But my one night sojourn will attempt to tell you what lies in this nagar beyond the banal jalebi and fafda routine. The journey to Jamnagar from Mumbai is a good 14 hour run in the Saurashtra Mail that takes off from Mumbai about 8-25pm. It is preferable to take a three tier AC if one wants to enjoy the entire next day without signs of fatigue. General sleeper is the fun sorts but leaves you with lesser energy for next day as the sleep would be disturbed. With the usual delay in train incidents one lands in Jamnagar at about 12:30pm the next day. One already starts witnessing men in white cotton Kediyas and a white turban and the traditional ladies with a unique attire of a choli, a ghaghra, a dupatta, some jewellery and black tattoo like artwork all over their hand.
