The capital city of India is a glorious concoction of the old and the new. Temples that are centuries old, archaic Muslim quarters, and modern residencies, all exist alongside each other. Home to over a crore people, Delhi’s tourism is a treasure trove of historic gems, gardens, museums and a thriving food culture. Travel to the metropolis for the vibrant bazaars of Chandni Chowk that give way to Lutyens’ New Delhi, that is the pulse of the city. Among the numerous places to visit in Delhi city, for an insight into the magnificent Mughal era, go to the 16th century Humayun’s Tomb, the towering sandstone mosque of Jama Masjid, and experience the sound and light show at Red Fort. Tourists can spend mornings at the extravagant Akshardham Temple and evenings at the Hazrat Nizam-ud-din Dargah (shrine) that boasts of sufi music and delicious kebabs. Another popular attraction of Delhi city is its pulsating markets that from baubles to handicrafts, sell everything you can possibly think of. Those who have travelled to Delhi for its particular brand of food, won’t be disappointed. From hole-in-the-wall eateries and local student cafes in North Delhi to lavish restaurants and bars in South Delhi, there is no dish or cuisine you won’t find here. A huge incentive for Delhi’s tourism is its variety of public transport, wherein the Delhi Metro is the cheapest and easiest way to get around the city. Read More
Prashar to Delhi (482 km) Unwilling to return to hustle bustle of cities, we stayed till afternoon to soak in the last few hours of unperturbed silence, peace and fresh breaths of freedom.We stopped after Mandi and just lazed sitting on this bridge reliving the glorious past few days :
To reach Delhi by night, we boarded early morning bus at 4:00 am, next day, instead of other bus options available for 7:00 am and 11:00 am. The thrilled experience didn’t end here, Landslide delayed our bus by 1.5 hour, further adding twist, our bus got punctured which delayed our bus one hour more. It appeared that Uttarakhand wanted us to be with it. Finally, after many we reached Delhi late night.
When it comes to traveling, I would rather like to die with memories than live with dreams!Country must be burning their evils and sorrows with Ravana effigies but we took to the roads for doing likewise this Dussehra. Although the destination was still on slate but it was decided to leave the city behind, and the intentions were quite clear that we have to drive through the plains this time. It was basically a nomads trip with little to stay and more to travel which was only possible due to the good road conditions.It was to Moubt Abu. Rajasthan again!We started at around 1700 hours from Delhi and picked up the rest two buddies from Gurgaon’s Sohna road coz they were busy winding up their business so that trip shall mean solace. And thank God that happened. God of roads were quite supportive considering the long weekend and gave us only a few hiccups before kicking us out of the city. Music, drive, talks and fun carried us till a bit near Jaipur till we felt the urge of refuelling our food tanks. Unlike others, this trip of our was loaded with ample of time in hand so we managed to take several casual breaks and some comprehensive ones too. The first one costed us good one hour of time and we were rejuvenated for the wheels again.Driving for some one more hour, we reached to a dhaba which was almost closed but damn it, we wanted tea and we needed it that bad to wake him up. Relaxation that a cup of tea can give you on the road trip can not even be compared to the anything else in this world. Crew changed and but Shiva tracks still dominated the car play. We crossed the city of Ajmer from the circumference and promised it to visit soon.

Although we had afraid but drive well and reached Delhi at 10:30PM night in same daySummaryThe road is completely safe. From Delhi to Chandigarh, it is a straight National Highway. A very good road. Delhi to Chandigarh would take you 5–6 hours. Then, you'll come across an amazing curvy highway, the Himalayan Expressway till Parwanoo. Parwanoo is where the altitude starts rising. Here, you'll find the curvy roads. An easy drive it is, well, not really. Currently, construction is going on this road as the Himalayan Expressway is being stretched further, so you'll find a lot of traffic. You'll enjoy the views for sure. And from Dharampur to Kasauli, it is a fine road. It will take you around 2 to 2.5 hours to Kasauli from Chandigarh. There are a lot of eateries in Jabli and Dharampur, so you can fill your tummies. ;)Enjoy your trip.
The capital is at its most festive self during Diwali. While much of the beauty of Diwali in the capital comes from the warm glow of lights and lamps which adorn streets, homes, and shops, another important part of Delhi's Diwali culture are the flamboyant melas! And when it comes to melas, a favourite among Delhiites is the Sunder Nagar Diwali Mela. From giant Ferris Wheel, to countless food stalls and a contagious festive air, this iconic mela has been making Diwali happier and brighter for Delhiites since 50 years.Photography Tip: Always wanted to take that perfect Ferris wheel shot? Here's something that will help you. To get a perfect picture of the Ferris wheel at night, move close and use a wide-angle lens to get as much detail as possible. The Canon EOS 200D with new DIGIC 7 image processor, allows users to shoot in low-light conditions such as at night or indoors by setting their native ISO speed settings at up to 25600.
Our journey started from Delhi at around 9 PM when we reached Kashmere gate ISBT to catch our bus for Bhuntar. We had pre booked our to and fro bus tickets from HPTC website itself. The HPTC buses are the best in class and offer a comfortable ride at pretty cheap prices. Their buses are usually all booked so to catch one you have to book in advance.
There are various things in Delhi which people claim you have to do but it really wouldn't hurt to miss them. I'm sure you come across posts which speak about under-rated places and tell you what you should be doing, but this post is dedicated to what you shouldn't be doing if you come to Delhi.1) Chandni Chowk - The Parathe Wali Gali at Chandni Chowk is highly marketed but people often forget to speak about how unhealthy the food is and how the food is gleaming with so many mosquitoes. It really is very over exaggerated. Frankly, when I went to Delhi, I didn't eat at Chandni Chowk because the food was very unhygienic and I lost my appetite.

Rajasthan’s opulent capital is a magical land brimming with desert camps and lakeside palaces. Sitting on the edge of the Thar desert and surrounded by the Aravali hills, the Pink City boasts of hilltop forts, bustling bazaars and the best pyaaz kachoris you’ll ever taste. Among the places to visit in Jaipur city, the grandiose pink sandstone Palace of Winds, or Hawa Mahal, towering over the hustling streetscapes and the majestic City Palace are the ones attracting the most tourists. The 18th century old astronomical observatory of Jantar Mantar in Jaipur is a UNESCO world heritage site and a major tourist attraction. Perched proudly on the top of a hill is Amber Fort, dating back to the 16th century. The red sandstone structure houses palaces, temples, gardens and a lake inside its premises. One of the most favoured things to do in Jaipur is to walk through the lively Bapu Bazaar, and come out with bags stocked with bandhani-printed sarees, lac bangles, meenakari trinkets and blue pottery. And while you’re at it, shop for some string puppets or kathputlis that make for some excellent souvenirs. Galtaji temple, also called the Monkey Temple, is another must visit in Jaipur city. If your eyes just can't get enough, visit Amber Fort, which has its own 600-year-old story to narrate, through its spectacular light and sound shows, cultural performances and folk music. Rajasthani tailored clothes, jewellery and handicrafts are a huge hit as souvenirs, for their exquisite mirror work, embroidery, leather and splashes of colour making up for most of Jaipur’s tourism. Some famous places this illustrious workmanship can be bought from are Rajasthali, Anokhi, Johari bazaar and Sireh Deori Bazaar, but remember to bargain. Central Museum and Albert Hall museum are great places to learn about Rajasthan's rich history and culture and also to buy handicrafts. The Jaipur Literature Festival, the world's largest free literature festival, is dear to almost every bibliophile around the globe. Here, enjoy literature and music, amidst the likes of William Dalrymple, Stephen Fry and many other renowned writers and personalities. The 5-day festival is hosted in Diggi Palace, which gives people around the world an insight into Rajasthan's captivating cultural heritage. For those interested in pampering their palates with the flavourful Rajasthani cuisine against the backdrop of a picturesque village should visit Chokhni Dani. For a regal experience, a stay at the Suvarna Mahal is a must visit. Read More

Rajasthan, the moment you hear this name, you will think about royal palaces, majestic forts, desert, camel, elephants, jewellery, gems, colorful markets, festivals and food. So when I planned for Rajasthan, all of these things were on my mind and I was not disappointed when I visited Jaipur.Rajasthan, a desert state this might be but its bursting with color and exuberance. I am bit confused writing this blog, should I just keep writing about all the places I visited there, should I only post hundreds of pictures I took or should It be combination of both (would be very lengthy blog). Another feeling is, will I able explain the richness, artistic, colourful Jaipur with my writing or pictures but let me try...Here is the overview of places I covered in three days.Day 1 (Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar, City Palace)Day 2 ( Amber Fort, Gaitore, Jal Mahal)Day 3 (Jaigarh, Nahargarh)
Jaipur is all about flamboyant resorts, magnificent havelis, and mega-structure forts that makes it an obvious favourite among tourists. Are you someone who craves these Jaipuri specialities but are scared to spend exorbitant amounts of money just on accommodation? Don't you worry, we've got a crazy plan for you! The hostel culture has caught up even in our dearest Pink City, making trips to Jaipur cheaper, convenient and much more exciting! This latest trend appeals to travellers not just because it is cost-effective, but also because it breaks the restrictive decorum of hotels and opens up interaction with tourists from all over the world. Here are the best hostels in Jaipur that will make your weekend break to the Pink City even more special.1. Zostel
Things to do: Take a walk back in time by exploring heritage sites such as Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar and City Palace on foot; take a day trip to the most haunted place in India, Bhangarh Fort; go shopping with locals at the Babu Market; give your tastebuds a wild ride with the delicious street-food at Raja Park.
Among all three places Jaipur is my personnel favorite, Though I spent only a day out there, it filled me. May be because of my ever ending interest for astronomy! I am relived to see finally a public transport in Jaipur. My first stop in Jaipur isCity Palace:The palace is built in the middle of the city. There is also a section dedicated for the arts of Jaipur. They have traditional paintings made from organic colors and wooden replicas of the monuments & museums. It is the perfect way to take a memory back home.The city palace as a whole is marvelous. It is a paradise for art and history lovers.Hawa Mahal:Hawa Mahal is a palace in Jaipur which was constructed so that the women of royal families can see the day to day activities without anyone seeing from outside.The Hawa Mahal is an extraordinary pink-painted delicately honeycombed hive that rises a dizzying five storeys. And its name refers to “Palace of Winds”. It was constructed using red pink sandstone.Jantar Mantar:The Jantar Mantar is the largest open astronomical constructed site in india,which is a collection of nineteen architectural astronomical instruments, built by the Rajput king Sawai Jai Singh II. The king himself is a great astronomer and he invented those instrument that where build there. You should need a guide to know how these instruments works & afternoon is a good time to visit the place.Amber Fort and Palace:Located high on a hill, it is the principal tourist attraction in the Jaipur area. You have to face an uphill task of hiking up or you can also take a cab , but once you reach the top you can mesmerized by the view it offers. surrounded by the hills it offers the panoramic view of the Jaipur city. For this place a Japanese guy & a locale guy accompanied me and spend three hours with me talking all those nonsense stuffs & made my day.With this My trip come end & took a train back to Chennai with tough task at hand! yea, to build a itinerary for this.
Day 10: September 26, 2015:I began the day a little late. Jaipur had a lot to see, though I simply chose to see the Jal Mahal and a fort. The fort wasn't very far from the hotel and I checked out at 10 AM and decided to take a walk around the fort.After visiting the fort and jal mahal, it was time to head to Sawai Madhopur, about 150 kms away from Jaipur.As I continued the journey, the roads were pretty bad. I reached Sawaimadhopur at 7:00 PM and called my school friend (she is the District Magistrate and Collector). She had arranged for stay at the travellers bungalow. Had dinner with her family and spoke briefly about the journey.
2. Jaipur, Rajasthan : The capital of the majestic state and around 85 kilometres from Bhangarh Fort, Jaipur is one of the most loved cities in the world owing to the fact that it perfectly encapsulates the sheer essence of India. With a maddening number of palaces and forts, a thriving food and shopping scene, transport ranging from autorickshaws to camels and the most hospitable locals on this planet, Jaipur is essentially a celebration of life.

Home to the grandiose Taj Mahal, Agra’s city echoes of its bygone Mughal era days. Located in Uttar Pradesh, tourists from across the world flock to Agra all year round. Boasting of three UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Agra Fort in the city,the white marble architectural wonder of the Taj Mahal and the nearby Fatehpur Sikri. Agra is also dotted with numerous tombs and buildings that have been left behind by the Mughal empire. Agra’s tourism can also be credited to its sweeping gardens of Soami Bagh, Ram Bagh and the most beautiful of them all, Mehtab Bagh. Agra city is also swarmed by a multitude of temples that add to Agra’s vibrant character. The Balkeshwar and Kailash temple on Yamuna’s banks worship Lord Shiva, while the Mankameshwar Temple is loved by the locals for it mellifluous aarti. And while you are in Agra, you should definitely incorporate Sikandra in your itinerary. Akbar’s tomb, or Sikandra lies north to the city, and takes about thirty minutes from Agra. Itmad-Ud-Daulah's Tomb, fondly referred to as the Baby Taj is another must visit. Read More
If you have visited Taj Mahal a thousand times and have come to believe that that there's nothing more to discover, wait till you see Mehtab Bagh on a moonlit night. Tourist guides and popular travel books will rarely tell you about this hidden treasure of Agra, simply because it's difficult to locate among the winding by-lanes of the city. But once you find it, you get a chance to enjoy a panoramic view of Shah Jehan's beloved Taj Mahal.'Wah Taj!', you will say to yourself.
The trend of backpacker's hostels has finally come to India. And who's complaining. Zostels are like the travel hostels we have all seen in the movie Queen. Clean, cheap, centrally located and secure.In addition you get to meet loads of new people waiting to be your friends. Zostel is expanding rapidly by the day. Presently, there are around 20 Zostels in India and one in Nepal.Currently, Zostel is offering a volunteer Programme where you can be at their front desk. In return they offer you free accommodation. Cool, Isn't it.Volunteer to Travel :I have been a huge fan of long trips. I barely plan 2 day trips. Short trips are for tourists, vacations are for travelers. Don't get me wrong here. But how can you capture the essence of a place, visit the offbeat places, do what the locals do in 3 days. You barely have time to rush to all the touristy places. Isliye, I volunteer. This provides you a change to contribute in your own little way during traveling and gives you an immense sense of satisfaction.Here are few of my favorite volunteer organisations:
Start your trip in Agra by visiting the Taj Mahal. An ivory-white marble mausoleum, a symbol of love and commitment, Taj Mahal is also one of the seven wonders of the world. Also check out Fatehpur Sikri, located at an hour's drive away from Agra and the Agra Fort.
Day 13We reached Agra in morning and checked in Big Brothers hostel, A very cheap AC paying guest facility with free breakfast.We Started our day with the Taj Mahal. Both of us had thought of Taj Mahal few times before, but never had the chance. Then to went to Agra Fort, then by afternoon had lunch and returned to hostel.
If you haven't seen this wonder of the world despite living in India. Stop thinking to tour the world and come right here. I am talking non other than but a wonder of world - Taj Mahal. And where is it? Agra ! No word can describe the beauty of our Taj until you see it. The lovely city of Agra where lies the beauty is itself a lovely place.Agra is almost 235 km from Delhi and reaching there isn't a tough job, no matter where you come from. Agra being a popular city can be easily reached by various trains and buses from different states. The bus stop is 13Km away from Taj Mahal. Railway station is pretty close to Taj Mahal at around 6-7Km. For people travelling from a near by place like Delhi can take their own car which would take just 4 hours via the Yamuna Expressway.
we had lunch in between in a Highway Hotel, which was an average Food, then started and reached Agra.
8. Wonder awaits you at AgraThe most wondrous of the seven wonders, Taj Mahal can be your call for a sweet weekend getaway. A train from Delhi Hazrat Nizamuddin to Agra is a joyride for less than 3 hours. Spend, spend, spend and act touristy as you get clicked holding the Taj dome, dance around Mehtab Bagh and visit the Agra Fort. Your minimum travelling expenses leave you with a heavy pocket to enjoy a grand Mughlai lunch. Frequent trains to Agra are always available, which make it the best budget place to visit near Delhi.
Here are some interesting facts about the fort, which I recently visited with my parents and our guide was highly helpful in making us go through the history of the fort and its facts and figures.1. The strategic location of the fort was of vital importance to every dynasty that decided to take control of Agra. It was Babur, who first captured the city and built the fort. After he lost his battle with Sher Shah Suri, the fort was taken over by the Suri dynasty who ruled till 1555 AD and finally was taken back by Akbar and he made it redesigned using red sandstone. So in a period reigning from 1526 to 1556, three dynasties took control of the fort.2. Most part of the fort is made of red sandstone. It was Akbar who had a fantasy for red walls and architectures made of sandstone. He brought some 4000 plus premium sandstone from the quarries spread across northern India to build the fort as he wanted.3. Upon entering the fort from the southern gate, visitors can see a 60-degree inclined walkway to move up to the main complex of the fort. However, it was made 60 degrees inclined so that during the siege the enemy elephants and horses can’t climb with great efficiency. Moreover, super heated oil used to be poured down so that the entrance gets jammed. This indicated brilliant usage of science and architecture of those times.

Chandigarh is India's first planned city, quite distinct from the rest of the country and considerably better organized. It is the capital of both Haryana and Punjab, but the city itself is not part of either state, being a union territory, i.e. administered directly by the central government. It was one of the early planned cities in post-independence India and is internationally known for its architecture and urban design. Chandigarh has various visitor attractions including theme gardens within the city. Some notable sites are Sukhna Lake, Rock Garden, Rose Garden, Parrot Bird Sanctuary Chandigarh, and Leisure Valley. Chandigarh as a perfect city with regards to its cultural growth, modernisation and architecture. Rose Garden is home to over 1,500 varieties of rose and the Garden of Fragrance is perfect for those mind-refreshing walks. Chandigarh has a bustling food scene, home to every cuisine you can think of right from Mediterranean (Kelong, Virgin Courtyard) to Thai (Tao- Bar & Lounge). Some popular places for Punjabi dishes are Punjab Grill and Sher-e-Punjab. Chandigarh is also close to many hill stations such as Solan, Kasauli, Shoghi and Naldehra.Read More
We have started journey from Chandigarh to Delhi and heading heavy rainfall around 3 hours.heading up towards Delhi from Chandigarh, had been driving in heavy rainfall and blowing parking lights on the road and following the traffic rules, didn't over take any car.
So now, after dragging through Manali City till Mandi, we had light Dinner at around Midnight at a Dhaba of Day 8-Day 9, our Driver Virendra took some "Herbal Medicine" to stay awake all night so that he can drive, the reason we were going to Chandigarh was Virendra had to go to his home town in Jalandhar and Chandigarh would come in between so that is why, and then we marched there in our 4x4 Toyota Innova with speed not less than eighty at any point of time, in five hours we covered three hundred and fifty Kilometers and we were at Chandigarh, it was 6'O clock in the morning, we thanked Virendra for the awesome driving and his time, bid farewell to him, we weren't sleepy at all as we did slept for four hours in the cab, so we all decided to take a bus back to Delhi then and there, the ticket was of five-hundred and fifty rupees, and again in next four hours in the afternoon when we were in Delhi, we all were feeling the heat, we all were tanned, we all were full of contentment and emotions, we all smiled at each other saying this is not the end, we are again having this kind of adventure, and we four parted in our ways. it was heart throbbing. Finally i got back home Late Afternoon. :)
The A/C buses were all filled up for the night journey to Dharamshala from Chandigarh days before the trip. Fortunately we got the Non A/c Himachal roadways bus 11 pm time only because Pallav took a journey to the bus stand in the afternoon.Anyways we were off a company of six knowing so little about each other( two of them I had met just twice to discuss some things about the trip, one of them I had interacted with a little bit in the last year or so-tagged him along knowing he is a superlative trekker and he was showing enthusiasm to go on a trek, one of them I just met on the day-a friend of Pallav from school.We stopped in the middle of the night for the bus's arbitrary one stop and we didn't see Vishal(the superlative trekker) anymore that night. He had apparently taken the Volvo to Dharamshala. (one seat vacated)
Original postIt is 7 PM of a hazy Chandigarh evening. We have missed the last bus to Reckong Peo. Earlier, when we set out from Mumbai, the bus to Peo was the only part of our itinerary that we were sure of. Now, it felt like a round one knockout punch. The bus terminal meanwhile is frenetic, conductors are calling out loudly, empty buses roll in and leave the stand - overflowing with humans and all kinds of luggage. The confused noises and metallic smells are unmistakable.Meanwhile, I ask at the counter " Peo ke liye aur koi bus milegi? "" Nahi ji, subeh 4 baje ki sawari hai. Lekin 8 baje Rampur ke liye ek bus nikalti hai. Ya fir aap Shimla chale jao, 7:30 ki bus se "We stand besides the counter and implore - should we stay back in Chandigarh and wait till dawn? Or do we get started with our adventure and let the road take over our fates? On a trip, I always preferred getting on with it, not break the momentum, as if the greed of exploring took over, instinctively provoking me to wander off in search of new lands. And so I ask Swanand, my younger cousin and partner on this trip, to book two tickets to Shimla. It may happen that we will end up in Shimla, in dead of the night, looking out for a lodge to crash - but we shall manage. I feel bad for Swanand though, and a little concerned too for subjecting him to this ill planned itinerary in our first trip together.The evening sky glows in a shade of magenta. The pink light bounces off the concrete structure - making everything appear very beautiful. The dim yellows inside the bus provide a soothing contrast to the colours outside. The bus has now begun cruising along the streets of Chandigarh, passing through the towns of Panchkula, Pinjore and Kalka. It is all uphill now. We start to leave the plains behind heading towards the lights that we can see at the top, higher up in the hills. I can feel my excitement - the trip has finally begun, slowly entering into the realm of the Himalayan kingdom. But with this excitement is also a tinge of nervousness, because, unlike any other trips I have done before, there's no one waiting for us at the end of the road.We arrive in Shimla by 12:30 in the night, much like two stranded souls waiting to be pounced upon by the predator guides of the night, looking to make a quick buck. They offer us free rides to hotels nearby, in an Alto which clearly has seen better days. We go up, then come down swirling crazily, the driver knows the lanes and gullies at the back of his hand. Even the basic rooms shown were far too expensive. Perhaps, it was the commission of all the touts in between that drove the prices through the roof. At the end though, we give in, no point in finding a room that was cheaper, if we do not get a chance to sleep at all.-
The route from Delhi to Chandigarh was not new to us (Me and my best man ;)), as we had traveled a couple of times earlier on the same roads. The bus took us nearly 6 hours to reach Chandigarh, as we got stuck on the roads during the wee hours. It was 1130 IST we reached Chandigarh.TIP: If going by this itinerary, make sure to board a bus from Delhi late night to avoid the wee hours traffic.We had already made our bookings with Awerides, a bike rental service located in Chandigarh Sector 42. Royal Enfield, Classic 350 it was! One of the most comfortable bikes to ride on the mountains (That's what he says ;))
This small compact neat and clean union territory is shared by both Punjab and Haryana as their capital. Surrounded by lakes,gardens and greenery all around, this city was one of the early planned cities in post-independence India and is internationally known for its architecture and urban design.You can start your day with a sunrise by the Sukhna Lake followed by a visit to the Rock Garden and Parrot Sanctuary and Rose Garden. End it leisurely at the Leisure Valley.Sukhna Lake: Its a 3 km rain-fed lake with a seasonal stream coming down from the Shivalik Hills.It is the venue for many festive celebrations with the Mango Festival held during the monsoons being the most popular one.
3-4 mths of research for planning a budgeted trip to Ladakh. This wouldn't have been possible without the help of a friend and owner of Skyriders Adventure. One can contact him on this number for any trip to the Himalayan range, Atul Jaiswal-9855085962. I will also like to add-on the cost reduced as we were 9 people.The journey started from Chandigarh. Mumbai to Chandigarh flight in the evening, touched down at 6.30 pm . As booked 3 mths prior it costed us Rs 6000. The same evening 10.30 pm HSRTC bus to Manali. Costing somewhere around Rs 800-900. The best mode of transport via roadways from Chandigarh.

A quick getaway destination for Delhi-NCR residents, Mussoorie or the 'Queen of Hills' is the most favoured place for anyone battling urban heat. It remains quite crowded from May to July, as popular hotels and hangouts such as Mall Road, Mussoorie Lake, Kempty Falls and Gun Hill remain pervaded with tourists no matter where or what you may set your eyes upon. But if you carry the spirit of an explorer within you, Mussoorie can surprise you in many ways. For instance, if you curious to check out where the man who Mt. Everest is named after, once lived, you can reach the house and laboratory through a picturesque 4 km walk from Library Bazaar or Gandhi Chowk. Ditch the customary visit to Kempty Falls and take an uplifting trek to the quiet, serene and crystal clear Jharipani Falls instead. Mussoorie, when mist free, provides frame-worthy views of the Himalayan ranges, which can be enjoyed at points such as Lal Tibba, Nag Tibba and Camel Back Road, all of which need to be trekked or walked to, with the effort being worthwhile. Devalsari, a village quietly burrowed 55 km away from Mussoorie, is the gateway to the Nag Tibba trek and a location perfect for seeing beautiful butterflies and birds in the heart of nature. For those curious to delve into Himalayan life, history, art, culture and spirituality, Soham Heritage and Art Centre gives exquisite displays of the former, through various artefacts. As for foodies, restaurants such as Neelam, Imperial Square, Meeting Point Cafe and Casa Mia bakery do justice to North Indian, European and Tibetan cuisines and also offer delicious cafe knick knacks and drinks.

On day 2 we had planned to visit mussoorie particularly the Kempty fall.We left the hotel early morning and started our journey towards Kempty fall which is almost 40Km from Dehradun. After having some breakfast at the road side outlets we further resumed our journey to Kempty fall.On the way to Kempty the natural beauty was awesome and mindblowing.
The serpentine queue ahead of me at the ticket counter had an entirely different story to tell. Taking full advantage of my journalistic skills, I initiated a conversation with another girl in the queue who was right behind me and asked her where she was heading. Mussoorie, she said. She also informed me that the last bus to Chamba leaves in the evening and there was no other way to reach Kanatal than hire a cab which would have emptied my pocket right away. I decided to stay the night in Mussoorie and make a move to Kanatal the very next morning. Having little hope of getting a seat in this bus to Mussoorie, we decided to book a cab. I talked to an old couple nearby who had to go to the same place too and together we got a taxi. The ride cost me around Rs 300. I gave myself a pat on the back and reached Mussoorie’s Mall Road in about 45 minutes. Mussoorie seemed overly crowded and huge, concrete buildings came in the field of vision every time I wanted to look at the mountains. Having come this far to be with nature, this was highly disappointing. However, I would like to give the place some benefit of doubt. There must be quiet, serene places in Mussoorie for sure but as soon as you enter this hill-town, it overwhelms you with tourists, buildings and the hustle-bustle, like any other city. If anything, I was looking for the complete opposite. I booked a hotel room for the night after hours of looking around, haggling and negotiating. The room I finally zeroed down upon was for Rs 800/night and seemed safe and decent enough for me to stay in. Quick tip for the foodies: If in Mussoorie, head to Cafe By the Way on the other end of Mall road for some good music, great ambiance and delicious food.The first bus to Kanatal leaves at 7am. I was all charged up and waiting at the bus stand while enjoying Maggi and chai at a small tea-shop just around the corner which offered an amazing view of the mountains. To my surprise, the bus was full in no time and everybody was quite upbeat for such an early hour. I got a tiny portion of the seat beside the conductor and started waiting for my destination: The beautiful Kanatal.
We reached Dehradun at 5:00AM in the morning, took a taxi from the railway station to our hotel for 1500 rupees. We stopped for Maggie, tea and omelette. Hot Maggie and tea in cold summer… that’s the kind of vacation I love!! We stayed in Dancing leaves by Sterling. The check-in was hassle free. The way down the slopes to the cottages partly by lift and partly by stairs -felt good but the thought of climbing back every time for a meal or city-visit was daunting. Day and Night both the views were mesmerizing all over, the hotel is on the top of a hill. The only problem was that there is no public transportation to the main city or I should say the famous Mall road from the hotel. It’s either hotel taxi (which is on the costlier side) or walk by foot which isn’t that tiring though. We chose to explore on our own pace and started walking. The city has a small downtown. Where you get good food and Super yummy Momos oh my god!!!! I’d go back to Mussoorie right now Just for Maggie, momos and the street soup. It was delicious!!We wandered around in the Mall road. There are plenty of street shops with variety of stuff. If somebody want to buy good woolen stuff or Pashmina. you are in for a treat!! Mall road is known as the shopping center of Mussoorie.
We decided on a rickshaw ride to the Company Garden. It is a half an hour ride by rickshaw and due to the up and down terrain, one of the riders have to get down very often and walk beside the rickshaw. I, being the girl, of course, didn’t walk. We reached the garden around 3 p.m. The garden was well maintained with beautiful flowers blooming all over the place. The place was swarming with tourists and it was difficult to take pictures. We spent an hour in the garden and happily clicked some pictures like tourists. There was still some time before darkness set in. So, we decided to cross off Camel’s Back Road from the list too. It was another half an hour rickshaw ride from Mall road. Having read so much about this place, I had great expectations but it turned out to be a hoax. On reaching the point, I was so disappointed to find only a telescope and a guide who was more than eager to show us two points on the top of the hill that looked like a camel ( Now who knows if it was real or if someone had arranged it to look like a camel) for 100 bucks. The rickshaw guy took 500 rupees from us for the whole trip. We paid and went to a vehicle rent shop where we booked a scooty for next day. There is only one such shop located near the HDFC bank on the mall road and it is run by a set of twins.We started our day early next day as we had only that day left. We took the scooty from the shop and went to Lal Tibba using GPS solely for directions. I must admit that the directions were not accurate and so we took help of locals. It is in Landour town within a distance of 5.5 km. It was part of the same hoax as the Camel’s Back Road. You reach a point where there is a telescope to look at a hill far away. The only thing I will recommend for the trip to the Lal Tibba was the scenery. I swear I saw a hillside blooming with different varieties of minuscule flowers like nature’s garden.
It was a spur of the moment decision. I had an extended holiday and needed a break desperately. So, I and my boyfriend googled the nearest places from Delhi one can visit. A number of options sprung up but we had to consider a couple of factors. The travelling time should be minimal as we wanted to spend as much time as possible in roaming and the availability of transport mode.The Planning: We zeroed in on Mussoorie as it is only a six to seven hours drive from Delhi. So, we booked the tickets through Paytm (around 700 INR) and hotel room through Oyo (around 1500 INR) and started for the trip day after. It was the month of October. We packed our stuff and went to R.K Ashram Metro station from where we were to board the bus. There were some girl groups too who booked tickets for the same bus. After reaching somewhere near Kashmere Gate, we were shifted to a smaller bus. The girls were not given the seats they booked and naturally, a hue and cry occurred. Luckily, us being a couple got seats together. We didn’t have dinner but we were so excited that we didn’t feel hungry. This was our third trip together but we were as excited as it were our first.The Journey: The journey took only six hours and we reached Mussoorie in the wee hours. A taxi took us from the bus stand to the mall road and dropped us just before no entry. We reached our hotel after ten minutes walk. It was hidden just behind the mall road and was as snug as I could have hoped for. The room was on the first floor and the view from the balcony was mesmerising. Exhausted from the overnight trip, we immediately fell asleep.We woke up around 11 and my boyfriend was already up and taking selfies. The quiet solitude seeped inside me and my mind was washed with a calmness that I hadn’t experienced for a long time. The breath of fresh air can really upgrade your mood. We dressed and left the hotel to have breakfast.The Exploration: The mall road is full of cute cafes and bakeries. You can take your pick from Chinese, Tibetan, Indian to all sorts of cuisine. We went to a Tibetan restaurant that was just around the corner. The Momos Restaurant serves amazing Chinese and Tibetan food. We ordered hot and sour soup and chicken momos and the verdict is 4.5/5. The ambience was great as the interior was done in Tibetan relics and wall hangings. The washroom was on the second floor and when I went to use it, it turned out to be quite a surprise. Part of the wall was not brick and mortar but a large chunk of the hill.Having done a google research the previous day, we decided to cover at least two tourist spots. Mussoorie is at a height of 2006 m and you won’t probably believe me but the mall road is so narrow that you can literally feel being on the edge of the hill. Fog covered the road so much that we couldn’t see beyond 5 feet distance. The air was chilly and there was no sunlight. Some tourists were cycling on the narrow lanes and so we decided to enquire about a two-wheeler. If you want to hire a two wheeler, you should do it in the morning because apparently the vehicles are rented for a whole day.
Road To Mussoorie is Ruskin Bond's typical version of a hill station. He recalls many interesting incidents, writes down stories of various people he came across and his own fond memories of what is India's first famous hill station. His writing immediately takes you to the mountains. Today, Mussoorie has changed drastically from what it was before. It nonetheless continues to be a frequently-visited getaway destination.3. Our Trees Still Grow In Dehra
Mussoorie is a hill station and a municipal board in the Dehradun District of the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand. It is located about 35 km from the state capital of Dehradun. Being at an average altitude of 1,880 metres (6,170 ft), Mussoorie, with its green hills and varied flora and fauna, is a fascinating hill resort. (Source: Wiki) Since, we had no plan to stay in Mussoorie overnight, so we decided to head directly towards Kempty Waterfalls, which is most attractive tourists spot in Mussoorie. We reached there by 2 as far as remember and as soon as the driver showed us a faint site of falls, we all were excited to reach there. Then, we all girls jumped in ice chilled water. Ohh, the water was so so so cold and it was falling on our head with a great speed. but, it was real fun. We even had felt the ice pieces in the water too which were falling on us :P. It was not easy to stay in this cold water for a long time so, we came out soon and then changed the dress. This fall has been totally commercialized. There are lots of eating outlets, vendors who give tubes, changing rooms and cloths on rent.
A small village nestled into the lap of Parvati valley, surrounded by the mighty Himalayas, guarded by the river Parvati and blessed by Lord Shiva. Known by various names like, land of hippies, trekkers' paradise, hash capital of India or simply Kasol!A place that falls on the way to the famous holy shrine, Manikaran, an Indian village where there are more Israelis than Indians, a place where smoking up in a cafe is legal but smoking on the road attracts a fine of 500 bucks. Kasol is a place full of mysteries. Looking at the billboards in Hebrew, the first thought that crossed my mind was that, in a tiny Himalayan village, who understands this language. But as I explored this hamlet, I discovered the answer to my question.In this blog, I’ll contrast between my two different and equally beautiful experiences of this land of hippies. I took my first trip to Kasol in the month of January when the winters were at their peak where I had to literally wear 4 layers of warm clothes since the temperature had dropped to -12 degree centigrade and even my smartphone had lost its smartness and had stopped working for two days. The roads were empty, the cafes weren’t crowded, there was no waiting for getting a table in the cafes, most of the shops and cafes were closed. The place was so calm that when sitting in silence, all we could hear was the sound of flowing water of Parvati river.My second trip happened in the month of October. This was altogether a different face of this beautiful valley. The weather was sunny and roads, shops and cafes were all crowded. Even the famous German Bakery was open this time.Loaded with lots of packets of wafers, biscuits, and what not, our road trip to Kasol started at 4:00 pm on a sunny afternoon from Rewari. We decided to take NH44 which passes through Rohtak, Panipat, Chandigarh and enters the land of Gods, Himachal Pradesh. As we all had met after almost a year, there was a lot of catching up to do. We didn’t realise that the sun had set long back and our stomachs were shrinking of hunger. So finally, we decided to take a pit-stop at a food plaza somewhere in Punjab (I don’t remember the name of the place). The best part of being on a highway in Punjab is that you get lip-smacking food and ultra hygienic washrooms in the food plazas. After having dinner, without wasting time we resumed our journey. Taking few chai breaks on the way and driving for whole night on ghats, our bumpy ride to Kasol ended at 6:00 am. Read More
