Lucknow or the City of Nawabs sitting on the banks of the Gomti river, is regarded as North India’s cultural capital. ...
From Agra, leave for the capital of Uttar Pradesh, Lucknow. A foodie's paradise, Lucknow is known for the world-renowned tunday kebabs. But there's much more to explore in this underrated city. Buildings reminiscent of the British Raj, mausoleums, and a bhool bhulaiya (maze) to get lost in this city, make it a fun place to visit.
The journey from Bhairahawa to Lucknow marked the final leg of TON 2017. After crossing the border (which happened surprisingly quick), we traversed 360 km of Indian highways through Gorakhpur and Faizabad to arrive at Lucknow. There was celebratory ceremony marking the conclusion of this epic journey. Receiving certificates of completion made the riders ecstatic and emotional which was evident in farewell addresses by fellow mates and crew members.
The Nepal journey began from Lucknow at the Golden Tulip Hotel. It felt like déjà vu entering the hotel lobby, seeing the riders wait with their riding gear and luggage with curiousity and high hopes in their eyes. Some of the people from the Bhutan team were back again for this one and I could completely understand the excitement in their hearts as we caught up and discussed old episodes.The highlight of the team this time were the 4 female riders who had joined us from Bangalore and Aurangabad. They seemed confident, experienced and ready for the challenging ride with all their charm.Day zero was First aid training by Tarun (Rashtriya Life Saving Society) followed by tour brief by Shawn Dsouza and Rohan Pimpley (RE team) with a thorough Q&A session breaking the ice and setting the tone right for the team to kickstart the journey next day.
We started from Lucknow, aka The City of Nawabs & reached Gaya Junction, the nearest railway station to Bodhgaya after a twelve-hour journey by train. Without any delay, we took an auto-rickshaw to Bodhgaya that is around 17 km away. You can find a number of transport facilities to go Bodhgaya from Gaya Junction.Where to Stay –
Lucknow, also known as the city of Nawabs has developed over the years but hasn't lost its rich cultural heritage. The city is divided into two parts the old city and the new city . The old city primarily consists of the Imambaras (shrines), the monuments, the very famous tundey kababs. The new city has the malls and the parks. There is a startling difference between the two, the new city is cleaner , better roads and it's easier to get a mode of transportation, whereas the old city is dusty and the main mode of transportation is cycle rickshaw, electric rickshaw and shared autos, however, it has most of the places that are worth seeing.
The flight reached Lucknow at 8:25 a.m. At the airport we took the taxi for 250 rs. At the prepaid counter it was told 300 rs. You can bargain for around 200. We reached the railway station to pick up our bikes by 9:30 a.m. but the counter at the railway station opens only by 10-10:30.We paid 550 to the guy as a bribe though the actual amount is 350 for 24 hours. Checklist: A swiss knife to remove packing from bikes else you will have to pay someone to remove the packing. 5 liter empty can as bikes won't have petrol while packed and transported and in case the petrol pump is far A good cloth actually multiple number of clothes to clean bikes. A right turn from the railway station and around 3-4 km you can find a petrol pump. Our route of 324 km which we planned for this day was Lucknow -> Faizabad -> Basti-> Bhairwah->Saunali Here we took the diversion to Naugarh instead of going to Gorakhpur. Unfortunately, this route was very deserted and roads were pretty bad. We kept riding till evening and late in the night at 12 a.m. #Stay Some people suggested us Sanju lodge but we were so tired that we took the first lodge we found named Niranjana.

Located in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand, Nainital is one of the most beautiful hill stations in Northern India. The ...
NAINITALOur Mahindra Bolero reached Tallital KMVN Tourist Rest House (TRH), Nainital at around 5.30 in the evening. We got off the car and were instantly greeted by shivering cold. Standing on the edge of the vast green pristine Naini Lake, I forgot about clicking any photo what so over.We headed straight to Tallital KMVN TRH reception and then to our rooms - which we managed to pre-book four months in advance ,from KMVN Tourist office, Kolkata. After checking in, I spontaneously reached out for my camera (my 4 year old friend, a Nikon Coolpix P510) and went on to explore the view from the balcony.
2. The multi-cuisinesBeing the major tourist destination, Nainital is the perfect spot for food. Get the taste of authentic Pahadi food, the exotic Italian and Chinese cuisines too. Momos and Thukpas come under the famous food in Nainital, that you can get from any eatery. But don’t forget to taste the traditional sweet, the Bal Meethai. The soft and chocolaty sweet is famous in the entire Kumaun region. Don't forget to visit the Maggie point.
Day 12We took a walk a around the lake. Then took Rope Way to Snow view point, but could not see anything from there for fog. Then we went to Cave gardens, but cave were all closed for rain. By afternoon we started for Agra.
Day 11We came to Nainital in morning. After some walk beside the lake we found a hotel. But rain started, which mostly ruined rest of the day. At night I took a walk in the city. City looked quite great at night with the lake and all the lights over hills.
The tiny little town established by the British around the Naini Jheel- Nainital has emerged as one of the most popular tourist destinations of Uttarakhand.We've all reveled in the vibrance of this quaint town, so much so, that most travelers return to Nainital every holiday season! Adding yet another feather to its cap, Nainital is now home to a first of its kind concept holiday resort, Abbotsford 1876. No longer do you need to jostle with the crowds on the Mall Road or trudge from hotel to hotel to find a quiet room; you can simply drive right up and stay in absolute luxury at Abbotsford and enjoy Kumaon in its pristine natural beauty. The Victorian settings and the breathtaking view will make you feel that Abbotsford is the Downton Abbey of India!ABBOTSFORD 1876
Day 5: Ride back to Delhi to catch our flight back home.
My favourite although was Naukuchiatal as it was a quiet and serene lake nestled in the surrounding green hills with variety of bird life.We also enjoyed a boat ride here instead of the more popular Naini lake of NainitalBy evening we returned back to our room and called it a day.
Day 2: Morning started with the majestic view of Himalayas from the room itself. Slowly we pulled ourselves out from the comfort of the room to experience the chill outside and the morning fresh air. After breakfast we moved towards Nainital. Checked into a holiday home and just spent the day at leisure , visiting the Naini Devi temple, roaming around in the mall road in the evening and savoring hot momos and thukpas and finally retiring to our room.

Rishikesh is a small town in the northern state of Uttarakhand in India. Scenically located where the Ganges River comes...
DAY 2 : We left for Rishikesh, apart from rafting and cliff jumping there is much to explore in peace and beauty.Place has its owned popularity for meditation and Yoga which is being followed since decades.The most popular band "The Beatles", king of rock and retro music in late and early 90's visited the place in search of peace which made the place a tourist spot for music lovers.In memory of the famous band, the natives had named their cafe's as "The Beatles Cafe" which, rather the only cafe which that band went to was a mystery to us. We spent two nights at some government quarters at Rishikesh, as my friend was working in Chief Minister office, Dehradun.Aanother day we went to "Little Buddha Cafe", a not so quiet but a decent place to sit and enjoy whole day with dope and music. The cafe is known to be as a second home for foreigners, where they dope and rest at peace in melancholic music. One might face discrimination here as an Indian, they don't entertain Indians the way they care for foreigners.
Rishikhesh is amongst my most preferred destinations for relaxation and my love for Yoga further adds to its charm.
You know how there is always that one person who's always planning a trip and almost always failing to gather enough people to go forward with it? Well this time around this dog finally had his day. By the way, this dog is not me. Moving on, nevertheless.ISBT, ISBT, ISBT! Kashmiri Gate, Kashmiri Gate, Kashmiri Gate! Bus, bus, bus! *sigh* now let's go and get ourselves a bottle of water for the ride (Isn't that how it always goes?)Fast-forwarding through the 7 hour over-night bus ride and the little insignificant dhaba stopover where everyone is groggy from not sleeping yet sleeping with their eyes open. And of course, their toilets. The only reason the driver really makes the pit-stop. Let's face it.Finally! We arrive at Rishikesh. And there lay, a few hundred metres in front of us, the river Ganga. Or Ganges as it's known. Making its way from Gangotri, pit-stopping (or rather waving at us and carrying on towards the Sundarban Delta) at Rishikesh where it fills its pockets with gold and diamond and ruby and all the tears that come with it. And on it goes. And it keeps going till that moment that its one with the ocean. Kinda like life if you think about it.Emerging from our near hangover like state we entered Amrit Ganga Cafe in hopes of finding some good food. And good food we got. Kafuli, Gahat ke paranthe and Kumaoni raita to top it off. It was the best cure to our sluggish morning and we could finally completely appreciate the freshness of the air, the enormity of the river Ganga and the daily worship that followed with it.After sifting through an endless line of cabs we came across one fairly reasonable. Onward we go, towards a supposed 'surprise'.On our way, every time I looked out of our cab all I saw were river banks and camp sites. River banks, camp sights, river banks, camp sights, river sights, camp banks. How I wished we could go camping.Going down a steep road we started steering towards a little camp site ourselves. Could this be? I've never been camping before but could this.."Oh boy!" Serendipitously, I found the little kid in me again.
So Next day we all woke up with our freaking dreams of Rope getting cut during Bunjee and all finally headed to nature walk which the camp had arranged us .Then finally we had breakfast packed our bags and got ready for bunjee .Bunjee timing -9.39am-4pm.Please plan early as it depends how many people are in queue for this activity.We had booked a cab this day as we had to visit bunjee and also we had to reach rishikesh .This cab we bargained for 2000 deal was to drop us at Railway station , also to cover any place on the way.We reached Jumping heights and twice we used restrooms .And since there was a queue we planned to do flying fox and did this .Flying fox 1800+bunjee 3500+750 for video .
Then we went to camp by two wheeler had our lunch and headed towards , Laxman and Ram Juhla .We also wanted to attend the Ganga Aarthi. The Jhula really shakes and there are two wheeler moving on this imagine. We got confused as many places Ganga aarthi is done , so finally went to Parmarth where actual Ganga Arthi is done .It was pretty divine to see this .Finally reached our camp .And we had done the bunjee booking for all [ irrespective of people freaking for height].
When we fell in water ill tell you i really thought am gone , as somehow all got in and I was the last one to get in .It was really freaky on top of that due to force of water even my pant was coming out .Luckily managed to hold it .And the experience was awesome .Then we rafted well in all the other rapids except in one of golf rapid there one of our friend mad second debut.There was body surfing for stretch of 1-2 km where we voluntarily jumped in water and were holding rope and could move with boat.Just before the rafting ends there is cliff jumping and break to eat maggie .Most of my frens jumped though i freaked out .But please try this its nice experience .Finally we reached the shore and took our video [instructor had gopro cam on his head ] after a bargain of 1500 we got it .
Next day we were all planned to do our Rafting adventure so we all got ready had breakfast and please wear some tight and pants which are suitable for rafting and we started by 10am towards our place we had chosen level 4 22km rafting .I told you right its adventure to drive and i made first shree ganesh by falling on the mountain side and freaking others , happens sometimes short gal problems my leg was not reaching the ground when i reached the other corner it was too deep.
So we Reached aspen camp and food was ready , checked into our tents.we were asked to be ready by 4 so that we will be taken to a falls .[nature walk for 5km ] It was small falls.And we had to book 3 two wheelers for next day as we felt cab would be pretty expensive and a very adventures feeling to drive two wheelers in this road.Where one side of road is mountain and other side is river.We saw the view near our tents so we could not stop ourself from running and playing there and we finally some how managed to go to the falls as well. Night we ad camp fire and starters and good food served .It is an awesome experience to spend night Pahado ke beech , stary sky dreamy right .It was also too cold take some jackets.No network at all , but luckily they had wifi some how managed to book Jumping Heights booking for bunjee[ for our last day ].This is as awesome experience please do this without fail.
Our actual destination was Rishikesh so this is nearly 20kms from Haridwar and we had to reach a camp called Aspen where we booked our stay .We had got a good deal from them [stay +rafting =5500 per head].We booked 3 tents .Each tent comes with attached bathroom and people are really friendly and heplful .I would suggest you to go here .Stream flows just beside the camp and what an experience to stay here .So back to haridwar railway station , two of my friends went to book a cab to Rishikesh and finally we got one after lot of bargaining for 2200.On the way its a beautiful view , but we sensed that water level was less , so we were worried that we dint come in wrong season .I will clarify this season doubt once we go to rafting.

An ancient holy town and the starting point for pilgrimages to the Kedarnath Temple and the Badrinath Temple, Haridwar i...
The Bus from kashmiri Gate left us at Haridwar at 5 in the morning. And the bus going to uttarkashi was at 6’o clock which left us with some spare time.‘How are you,’ I asked.Cold, Arjun said. Let’s have a hot cup of Tea.While having that tea it came to my mind if it is so chilling in Haridwar, what will happen to me on the trek? Then I thought never mind, it had been worse & it is not the first time we did something stupid. Well we got on the bus & wow what a journey it was, half of the people were puking on one side and other half on the other side, this is the best thing I find about roadways. In order to distract myself I covered my entire face with my muffler & slept for the entire journey. It almost took us 7 to 8 hours to reach uttarkashi & 1 extra hour to bhatwari from where we hired a jeep which took us to raithal where the trek starts.The sun was almost about to hide & we did not had much time left in our hands. Bending under the weights of our packs we started hiking and within half an hour found a place near water source to pitch our tents.‘You pitch the tent & I will prepare the dinner,’ Arjun said.Alright, I replied.It was already dark and very silent & I could hear every sound including my own heartbeat which becomes really creepy and terrifying sometimes, although the dinner was perfect & we slept.
Day 2: The Bus departed at 6:00 and after a long 8-9 hrs journey we were finally at Rudrapryag. Now I didn't had a clue on how to reach deorital, I asked some taxi drivers and I'm telling u don't even dare to ask em they were asking for ₹1500 to ₹3000. And then I found out that there was a bus at 14:30 hrs that cost us just ₹60. At 18:00 hrs we started the trek to Deorital. But the action was left to happen. At around 19:30 hrs it started to rain and and the visibility was near zero we all had our headlamps on, by 20:00 hrs it was raining heavily and we were yet to set the tent. By the time the tent was ready to take us in I was soaked now it's sleep time ... Atleast that's what I thought and expected.
I just bag packed and left from Delhi via Noida to Rishikesh at 11:30 AM. It was Friday, the first time I was driving all over from Delhi to Noida that is not more than 30 km and then suddenly Bang! I hit my swift to a divider. I managed to reach Noida and my friends joined and I handed over the driver seat to him.Now the Trip Starts from here Delhi-Noida-Haridwar-RishikeshOn the way we take some snacks-popcorn, chips and cold drink to munch. Since it was Friday the perfect weekend so there was too much traffic on the route. We reached Haridwar at 5:30 P.M and decided to reach Harki pauri as it was the time for Evening Aarti and we do not want to miss that. We reached Harki pauri and the place was teeming but the view was amazing. The flow of river Ganga, the evening sunset, the beautiful glittering diyas floating and the chanting of mantra to appease the god that embraces “Jai maa gange jai jai gange” in a recurring voice is a sight to behold. The tiny diyas bedecked by flowers appears as if thousands of lamps are set to float in the river. We stay there till the Aarti end.Since it was late in the evening we decided to stay in Haridwar only. We searched for hotel and finally decided to stay in Hotel Crystal Ganga Heights that was hardly 2km from the Harki Pauri. The Hotel was cosy and the rooms were comfortable. We had our dinner in the hotel and the food was wonderful. In the midnight we celebrated my birthday and that too was great.
Has it ever happened that you plan for a Trek and you end up completing some other Trek? Well, Pangarchulla was something like that. We had planned for a trek to Bagini glacier on 25th of April, we started for Haridwar via New Delhi. It was already late evening when we reached Haridwar-the city of gods. After checking into the hotel we decided to take a walk along the river bank, which i must say was clean these days.
After seeking blessings at these major temples, we returned to Har Ki Pauri. Before the aarti ritual we all took a dip in the sacred and pristine cool water of Ganga to wash our sins. If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of Har Ki Pauri you can visit Swami Sarvanand Ghat to take a holy dip which is comparatively less crowded and well maintained. Now it’s time for some food walk in this holy town. Non vegetarian food is prohibited in Haridwar. But not to worry, the vegetarian delicacies available here are excellent in terms of quality & quantity.
This was the last phase of our trip, returning from Joshimath to Haridwar and then back to Gurgaon. We checked out of the hotel by 8.30 am and after a fairly uneventful and comfortable journey, we reached at Haridwar around 5.30 pm. Got a hotel near railway station to rest before catching the train (Mussoorie Express) to Delhi at 11.15 pm.Thus came to end another enticing journey to the mountains, filled with fun, adventure, fairy tales, fantasies, mythologies and overwhelming beauty of nature. A journey that satiated my soul. The places we saw, the people we met and the stories we heard will always be a part of me as memories for life. But my memories of the Valley are not complete yet and hopefully I will come back soon to get drenched in all its colors.
1) Haridwar-Rishkesh Get a car and go all the way 200km to Haridwar. A 5 hour long ride will take you there. Visit the holy place and Get ready to travel a little more to Rishikesh. Here is where the real fun begins. From river side camping to river rafting each and everything here will get you the essential break you need. If you want more info on rishikesh you can read my dedicated blog I published some time ago.
Our journey started from Gurgaon. We took the Jan Shatabdi train to Haridwar and reached around 8 pm in the night and checked in to the hotel booked by our trip organizer "Blue Poppy Holidays".

Chamba is a beautiful small town on Shaivalik hills near Dehradun. We had a trip to New Tihri last week, so on the way to Tihri we halted at this town for tea and snack break. The whole terrace farming scene and water flowing by captivated us there for almost 1.5 hours. People are very simple and decent here and it would give you a feel of old days. I would recommend that if you want some days of calmness and tranquility then you must stay atleast a week in Chamba.
