Lucknow or the City of Nawabs sitting on the banks of the Gomti river, is regarded as North India’s cultural capital. ...
Lucknow, The city of Nawabs...A place for history Lover as well as Foodaholic...There are so many places vistit in the city or near by city Like : Imambara(Bhulbhulaiya), Namisharanya, Chandrika Devi, Kukrail, Ambedkar Park, Janeshwar Mishra Park etc.But there are more place to eat then places to visit.. So before going to Lucknow check out the list and make a note wha you want to try and eat and one more thing dont eat before going to anywhere otherwise you will miss yummilicious food... Choose wisely and eat heavily
We started our journey from Lucknow To Naimisharanya around 8o'clock Morning. The distance between these two places are near about 91 KM so if you travel at the consistent speed of 50 KM per hour you can reach Naimisharanya in 2 hours and 12 minutes.How to Reach :There are all faciliies availabe like UP Govt Buses, Train but I like to say that you have to prefer Cab from Lucknow so you can go there in the morning and back to lucknow by the evening without any husstle.
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.

Located in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand, Nainital is one of the most beautiful hill stations in Northern India. The ...
On the banks of a mango shaped lake lies a town which was once the winter capital of The Raj, and is now favorite of millions of Indians.
Day 2 we had plans of visiting the zoo only to be interrupted by when my brother's friend saw a para-glider gliding in the sky.
It was nearly five years ago that we made our presence in the place. There were four of us who went on the trip- my brother, my mother, my brother's friend and me.
During 2012, it was an October evening when I got a call from my friend who was then posted in Rohtak, a small town of Haryana asking about my plans for the coming weekend. I had none, so he expressed that he would be getting bored at his house so I suggested him to come down to my place in Delhi which he felt as a usual boring stuff and proposed me his new plan to explore a new destination.We hunted on internet for some hours and then mutually locked an Uttarakhand based hill station in Kumaon foothills of Outer Himalayas i.e. Nainital. Within no time we booked train tickets on internet from Old Delhi to Kathgodam as it was the closest destination to reach Nainital since there were no trains till Nainital. Also during those days there were no such options to book hotels via apps or online methods so basically we had no plans after reaching the last station.
We boarded the train from Old Delhi railway station which is easily accessible from Chandni Chowk Metro Station by around 09:30 p.m. and reached Kathgodam railway station by around 05:00 a.m. the very next morning. Since it was the arrival of winters so the sky was covered with darkness and streets brightening with road lights but the station was full with private vehicles and passengers going to Nainital. Almost all of the cars and taxis were filled with couples. Since they wanted privacy so we had to back off but there was one car in which the couple was local to that place and they had to get midway so we got a chance to board it.After dropping our co-passengers, the driver was inquisitive to know our plans about Nainital i.e. stay and travel so as we had no strategic plans so he suggested us with one. For the first time we didn’t book any hotel as the hired car acted so where we relaxed until reaching the starting point of our main journey and also changed our attire.Within the next 4 hours we covered the below points starting and ending our journey with the beautiful Naini Lake and adjacent to it the Naina Devi Temple (one of the 52 ShaktiPeeth) via Mall Road :-• Naini Peak• Tiffin Top• Snow View Point• Gurney House• Cave GardenWe could not cover “Pt. G.B. Pant High Altitude Zoo” due to lack of time.Few beautiful places near to Nainital are Saat Tal, Bhim Tal, Nauchuchiya Tal, and Mukteshwar which may need some more days to be explored in detail.After completing our trip we were dropped to Mall road where we explored the shopping area which were narrow and hyped street markets and also had our breakfast and lunch as there were a lot of food joints so we tasted a variety of them in Mall Road itself. In the afternoon we boarded a bus to “Haldwani”, one of the nearest towns to Nainital from where we to took another bus to Delhi by around 05:00 p.m. So by this way we completed our trip within one day without reserving a hotel.Nainital Itinerary :-Day 1 – If you arrive early morning, you can plan outing for complete day and cover the above mentioned points after taking a few hours rest. You can head off to the picturesque locations in Nainital, whether Snow Top or Tiffin Top, which is connected to the main town by cable cars. In the evening, you can drop in at Tibetan Market or Mall Road to acquire some shopping experience.Day 2 – Start with the holy blessings from Naina Devi, a Shakti Peeth which is on Mall Road and barely 1.8 km. from the main town of Nainital. Then, you can visit the Naini Zoo which sports a rich collection of flora and fauna. You can also enjoy the Naini lake boat ride as well. If you're a boating freak, the best time to visit Naini Lake is from 16:00 onwards.Day 3 – You can try on some trekking and other adventure sports as well.Do carry warm clothes and gloves irrespective of whichever season you are planning to visit.View of Himalayan Range is mystic so don’t miss out on that !!!
While this city has a lot to offer in food, culture and fashion, repeating the same things over and over again can become really tiresome, really fast. I was starting to feel stagnated, spending much of my free time at home, away from the city’s stimuli I was oh-so-familiar with. I needed to get out of the house, see some things I hadn’t seen before, and shake off my inertia.So without thinking too much, I planned a quick getaway to Nainital, a perfect getaway that was far away from the city chaos and close to the solace found in the nature. So get out your cameras, book a bus and head here right away.
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.

We set out in noon after having breakfast at a local hotel.We took a boat which at first rowed us to a temple,thereafter left us at the starting point from where we were supposed to trek to the world peace pagoda.We started our trek and the majestic view of the town from above kept us glued.After reaching at the top we admired the beauty from the top and from the other side we took a cab that took us to Devi falls,thereafter the cab left us at our hotel.We packed our stuff and left for Sarangkot,from where we were supposed to begin our paragliding the next day.We stayed at Bhanjyang Village resort which offers a nice view point for enjoying the sunset. We stayed up till late gossiping and admiring the view.
The little paradise known as Pokhara demands to be explored and is the star of every Nepal itinerary. While flight tickets from Kathmandu to Pokhara are rather expensive, you could take the bus connecting the two destinations courtesy of the Prithwi Highway. A deluxe tourist bus should cost you around Rs. 1000 and renting a private vehicle, although convenient is a costlier option. Ask your hotel to make all bookings/transport arrangements for you. The drive is around 6 hours long and slightly bumpy but scenic. Pokhara is the perfect destination to visit for those who love walking but for longer distances like Sarangkot, it is possible to take a taxi.Amazing Things to Do in Nepal : Pokhara
5. In Pokhara? Lakeside road is the place to be!
Day 4, PokharaHeading to Pokhara with 7 hours Journey in the afternoon from Nagarkot, it was really long journey but also worth to see the sight seeing along the road way to Pokhara, we reach there in the evening, our Hotel near the Phewa Lake.. Cant see to much in evening...but we really exciting to wake up very early morning as we are planning to discover Phokara and the lake...And... this is what we saw in the early 5.30 am from outside our the Hotel after 15 minutes walk heading to the street..
The following morning we headed back to Pokhara taking the same route. Morning showers turned the route slushy making the descent more challenging than initially thought. Moving ahead, the riders literally stopped and kissed the road as we hit leveled tarmac after 3 days. It had been quite a spell.
After a hail storm the previous night, we woke up to a rainy morning all set to ride out to Pokhara. After a quick briefing about risky terrains, we rode in moderate showers through extremely slushy roads out of Kathmandu. The condition of roads improved as the skies cleared. Munching miles through the twists and turns, we rode through the serene valley along the Trishuli River.
Day 5 was my day of facing my fear. My fear of heights. It had rained very hard the whole of last night so we received a message from the paragliding company that they might have to cancel the flight. Secretly I was very happy about it. I registered but it didn't come through because of the weather. Yes, no one could blame me now for being a wimp but then things panned out differently. We went to the paragliding office at the designated time and they said the weather condition has improved so the flight is on. Damn! My heart drowned. I put up a brave face and hopped on to the car with a few other passengers and the pilots. Once we reached atop the valley (from where we had to take off) we were informed that we will be given enough time to prepare ourselves mentally however my pilot (Patrick from France) decided that we will be the first ones to jump as the wind was strong and the weather could get worse so he didn't want to waste any time and started preparing for the jump. I froze. Patrick started harnessing me and asked me to run as fast as possible when we hit the edge of the valley. I literally froze at the edge but it was too late by then. I was pushed by my pilot and within the next five seconds I was flying with the birds in the middle of that ravishingly green valley. I felt liberated. I felt happy. I was so numb with happiness that I couldn't react. I just surrendered myself to that moment of unbelievable happiness.
Day 4 we headed to Pokhara, almost six hours bus ride from Kathmandu. This place boasts of laid-back charm but it turned out to be a haven of adventures and misadventures for us. First of all, we got lost while locating our tiny hotel. Post that we headed out for a walk, lots of shopping and of course some dinner and drinks. We were doing good so far but some live music in a corner took us to a pub nearby and we walked there, ordered a few drinks but soon realised that the pop music was not our scene. Oh by the way, I registered myself for paragliding (yes, that was the big surprise). So yes, we exited the pub and started walking back to our hotel but soon the weather threw a big shock. It started pouring, so heavily that we had to take shelter. No restaurant visibly open at that hour, we started running faster but the rain was so heavy we could barely manage to walk. We had to pause. We looked around and found a small restaurant that was still open however we didn't know how to get there so we hopped from one balcony to the other to reach their balcony. We knocked on their door and were greeted by rather surprised but very welcoming restaurant helpers who were on the verge of shutting down the restaurant. We were literally shivering from that rain water exposure and they were kind enough to offer us a drink. They even decided to escort us to our hotel under the huge umbrella (the one that we see outside a hotel balcony).
We felt relief after taking the bags off, freshen up and went for the walk around lakeside. We enjoyed lakeside music along with the tasty food including Thakali rice as dinner. As we were to move to Dhampus early tomorrow, we returned back to the hotel on time and it was already the bed time. I wished ' good night' with the silent desire of getting beautiful window view of Mount Fishtail, tomorrow morning.RAIN, RAIN AND RAINAs I woke up in the morning at around 7:00 with the sound of thunderstorm, my wish to see the mountains went in vain. All I can see was clouds and rain. We waited for few hours but there were no symptoms of minimizing it rather it was going heavy. As Bikash had some work in the Internet, we left the hotel room and went to the nearby cyber café. He took some time to finish his work, as we stayed there watching the rain. We had no chance to move as planned, we didn't even have raincoats to cover us as well as our backpacks. And another bad thing - similar weather was on the forecast at least till the afternoon. It was frustrating time till. Despite all frustrations we had lunch on time, came back to room and slept more.

Kasar Devi Manala may receive all the attention when it comes to being called the 'hippies paradise', but Almora has a few charms of its own that has all the new wave of offbeat travellers flocking this small town in Uttarakhand.
Almora is located at a distance of 85 km from Haldwani. Being directly connected to the major city as Delhi, you can reach Haldwani via train or bus and then hire a taxi. Direct buses are also available from Delhi and Haldwani and even Almora. There are lot many options as Almora has a good network of roads to commute.
The next morning we were finally able to relish the beauty that is Khati village. We had our morning tea while enjoying the panoramic scenery of the village. Had we not been broke we would have definitely spent another day in Khati or trekked further to Dhakuri Top. Alas, our finances got the better us. After breakfast we trekked back another 5 km to Kharkiya. We took a jeep to Bageshwar. After a small lunch at Bageshwar we took a taxi to Almora. The journey back made us forget the silly fight & it dawned on us that we had just completed our first solo trek. It was a proud moment for us. We soaked it in & started chatting again like nothing had ever happened. This is is beauty of old friends. There is so much space for forgiveness & compassion. We reached Almora by sundown & had a hot shower the moment we entered my house.It was a trip that hooked me & made me a trekker for life. Little did i know that this maiden trek would start a hobby that would eventually become a yearly thing. I urge you all to taste the pleasure of solitude & scenery that Pindari has to offer, albeit with a better attitude than mine.Feel free to hit me in the comments section for more info. Cheers!
Our trek began from Almora (1650 mt) , my hometown, around 1 pm as we headed to Bageshwar for the night. The plan was to spend the night in the K.M.V.N (Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam Ltd) rest house & start the trek the following day. Its a 3 hr drive from Almora to Bageshwar covering around 75 km. We managed to reach Bageshwar around 4 pm & headed straight to the K.M.V.N guest house. There we spoke with the caretaker & he advised us to take an early morning jeep to Kharkiya. Kharkiya happens to be the last motor-able point along this route from where the actual trek begins. He was kind enough to arrange a jeep for us & promised that the jeep would pick us up from the guest house itself. With the jeep booking out of the way we checked into our room. The room did not offer much in terms of amenities. There was a basic double bed, two chairs & a table. The sheets provided were not the cleanest but the loo was satisfactory. There was a geyser & we were quite happy with that. We paid around 800 for the night.After checking in we went out to explore the town of Bageshwar. Bageshwar (975 mt) is a typical non-touristy town. The usual hustle & bustle of life can be seen here. The town is not the most gifted in terms of views but having chai along the banks of the river Saryu, which runs across the valley of Bageshwar, was to our mind a good way to spend an evening,After strolling across town we picked up some Rum & ordered room service which was basic but tasty food. We chatted the evening away & shared our excitement since this was the first time we were trekking & had consciously decided to do it on our own without the help of a guide or porter.Since we were on our own our bags were on the heavier side, weighing 22 & 15 kg respectively. We could not split the weight equally due to one bag being smaller than the other. The contents of the bags were food packets, rum, warm winter wear, water bottles, medicine box, rope, batteries, torch, headlamp, mobile phones, power banks, cameras, tent, sleeping bags, rain covers etc. Also, I was not carrying the most comfortable and light-weight clothing. I had not spent on light-weight gear at all & instead was carrying normal trousers, cotton t-shirts, heavy puff jacket, waterproof running jacket, and a passable back-pack. Now, one key advise to anyone going on their first trek is to never wear cotton shirts while trekking. I was stupid enough to wear them along with a cotton vest. The end result was that both the t-shirt & the vest absorbed my sweat & turned very hard & left permanent marks on my back as the weight of the 22 kg back-pack pushed them down & thus bruised my skin. This one little mistake caused me immense discomfort & was probably the one lesson I will never forget. Do not wear a cotton vest while trekking & invest in good quality quick dry t-shirts.We slept by 11 pm that night since the day was going to start quite early.
The next morning we had a quick breakfast & left for Almora at 9:30 am. The ride was beautiful with the sun stroked pine trees & the Kosi river popping up at several places.We reached Almora by 1:30 pm & thus concluded our week long adventure to Roopkund & back. Words & pictures cant describe what it means. I urge you all to go and see it for yourself. If you need any more information feel free to hit me in the comments section.
We started the journey from my hometown Almora, on the 2nd of October. Post breakfast we pushed for Lohargunj, the base camp, at 1:30 pm. It was a 5 hour journey of roughly 140 km & since we were driving ourselves, we were able to visit the Baijnath Temple that is on the way to Lohargunj. It is a magnificent 800 year old temple complex that gives you a taste of the ancient stone architecture of Kumaon & is reminiscent of the Jageshwar temple complex. An artificial lake constructed in the early 2000's adds to the quaint nature of the temple. A dip into the waters and post a quick homemade lunch we drove further to our destination Lohargunj. Post sundown at around 7 pm, we reached Lohargunj & got a place t0 stay at a lodge close to the Forest bungalow. At the cost of around 250 per bed the accommodation was clean & adequate. After dinner we decided to repack our bags for the actual trek that was to begin tomorrow. Now, since we were doing the trek independently without a guide or cook, we had quite a bit of equipment, including, but not limited to - sleeping bags, tent, stove, cutlery, food packets, inflatable mattresses, clothes, cameras, water bladders, compass, head lamps, medicine box etc. Since I had picked up a weighing scale from home we were able to determine the weight we were carrying quite accurately. Our bags weighed 22 kg per person - which we realized later is not the most intelligent weight to be lugging around on a trek. Nonetheless, we were unfazed & extremely excited for the coming adventure.
Day 9We started from Lohajung by 8 am. Others were going to Kathgodam, we got on their van to get down in the middle at Almora. We planned this place to take some rest after long trek.In the evening we took a walk around the city. It was fun walking in a nice and calm hill station at evening. From our hotel manager we got news that Binsar was caught on fire recently, so nothing much to see there at the moment, so we had to replan our rest of the trip.

"Abbey Bhai vo dekh Barf ka pahad" one of my friend screamed, like most of the guys from the plains do when they see snow covered mountains . It was 9 in the morning after a drive of 7 hrs we were about to reach Mukteshwar . '21 kms left' said the navigator, 13°C was the temperature showing in our phones. It was a perfect welcome by the mountains, the cool breeze, the panorama view of snow covered mountains
When in Nainital district, don't miss out on a visit to the scenic Mukteshwar, around 45 km away (1 hour 40 minutes). From here you can watch the sunrise above the beautiful Nanda Devi peak, or embark on a trekking expedition amidst lush trails. Mukteshwar is also popular for rock climbing and rappelling.

Drained from the journey and the bonfire party, we crashed around 1 am. An adventurous day lay ahead of us & it was time we stretched our backs for the first time in 20 hours.Day 2The morning after.
Mukteshwar has a pleasing mix of vegetation and scenic views. The place gets covered with apple trees during the season that not just looks good but are probably one of best pluck and eat thing.Mukteshwar gives you a clear view of the underlying which makes you feel on top of the world. The clouds seems so close you might just touch. During July and august the clouds forms a sheet below the ranges during morning, that looks heavenly. One can also spot ice covered mountain ranges early mountain which looks floating in the air.
Jim Corbett, the famous Hunter came here for shooting a Tiger and got mesmerized by its beauty. It has dense forest on one side and open Mountain View on the other. Watching Sunset while sitting on the cliff of Chauli ki Jali is something one ca cherish for years. A religious reason to visit might be the 350 year old Shiva Temple on the highest point of the town.This is just a 7 hour drive from Delhi, easily doable on a weekend. Can be considered as calmer alternative against Nainital as is on the same altitude and same distance from Delhi. Lot of staying options available here suiting everybody’s pockets.
About 25 kms from Ramgarh, is Mukteshwar, another beautiful town in the Himalayas. There is an old temple here, and on the way there are an array of adventure sport activities on offer. Ziplining, mountain climbing, rappelling, and so on. The place offers amazing views of the valley, and has a host of scenic and organic cafes and restaurants. On the way back to Ramgarh, is a place called Bhalu Gaad waterfalls. It is a 1.5 hr trek from the parking lot, and provides picturesque views of flora and fauna in the hills. Once you reach the waterfall, the beauty of the place is mesmerizing. A dip in the pond is not advised, it is freezing cold, and the depth is deceiving.The next day, our hotel guide advised a trek to Garhganchal, a 5 km trek to the top of a mountain, which has a temple. The trek is pretty steep and provides quite an exercise for the lungs. The peak of the mountain offers a breathtaking view of Bhimtal, The Sainik School, and Almora. The temple here is managed by Yogi Ranganathji, and his hospitality is simply outstanding. Tired by the trek and with the sun shining down upon us with no mercy, the Yogi offered us a refreshing cup of tea, along with dhurries to rest ourselves on, and gain energy for the trek back to the hotel.
Ramgarh lies in the proximity to some very popular hill stations like Nainital, Bhimtal, Mukteshwar, Naukuchiatal within a mile radius of 35 kms.We began our day early in the morning with a leisurely walk amid the nature and watched the sky change its color with the sunrise. The magical spell castes during the sunrise and sunset adds more charm to the place. We got back to the hotel for a warm breakfast and some rest. Later in the day, we headed to the famous orchards of the area. I suggest you to carry your own food as there might not be many options on the way. Next stop was Nathuakhan, a small hamlet where we wandered and wandered in the wilderness. We also visited Mukteshwar Dham, 350-year-old temple to Shiva in Mukteshwar.

Shaam hote hote Ranikhet pahunche. Almora jile main stith ranikhet bada khoobsurt hill station hai aur parytan kam hone ki vajah se yahan zyada bheed bhaad bhi nahin hai. Kahte hain yahan raja sudhardev ne rani padmini ka dil jeeta tha aur fr rani ne yahan rahne ka faisla kia isiliye is jagah ka naam ranikhet pada. San 1869 main angrejo ne yahan kumaun regiment ki sthapna ki thi.Humne hotel liya aur thodi der vishram karne ke pashchat ranikhet ghoomne nikal gaye.Cheed aur deodar ke jangalo se bhara ranikhet adbhut lag raha tha. Hum aise hi jangalo ke beech main pedon ke neeche jaakr baith gaye. Aisa lag raha tha jaise duniya ke sabse shaant sthan pr aakr baith gaya hun. chahkti chidiya sarsarati fizayen hain kudrat ne bhi kya gazab saaz cheri hai Alag alag prakar ki chirayen aur unki alag alag awazen kaanon ko bahut madhur lag rahi thin. Man to vahin baith kar meditation karne ka kar raha tha parantu raat hone lagi thi to khana kha kar vapas hotel aa gaye. Kafi thak gaye the isiliye neend bhi jaldi aa gai.Agle din subah uth kar ranikhet ghoomne jaana tha. Subah halki baarish ho rahi thi isliye thand bhi badh gai. Baarish rukne ke baad hum ghoomne nikle. Sabse pahle ranikhet ka prasidhdh golf course dekha. Hara bhara cheed ke pedon se ghira golf course kafi sundar dikh raha tha. Thodi der tak vahin ghoomte rahe aur fr baith gaye. Vahan se nikal kar jhoola devi mandir gaye. Jhoola devi ka ye mandir vahan ke logon main bada mana jaata hai. Kahte hain ki is jagah jangli jaanvar logon ko kafi pareshan karte the, tab maa durga ne kisi ke swapan main aakr kaha tha ki is jagah khudai Kare to unki moorti milegi. Vahan mili is moorti ko jhoola devi kahte hain. Jabse mandir bana hai tab se jangli janvaro ne kisi ko pareshan nahin kia hai. Mandir main ghantiya baandhne ki pratha rahi hai, to poore mandir main 1000 se bhi zyada ghantiya bandhi hui thi. Vahan se hum chaubatiya garden dekhne gaye. Chaubatiya garden, sarkar dwara banaya gaya asia ka sabse bada seb ka baag hai. Uske paschat hum log sainya sangrahalya dekhne gaye. Kumaun aur naga regiment ke poore itihaas ko darshata ye sangrahalya bada daarshnik tha. Sangrahalya main pahle vishwa yudhdh se lekar aaj tak regiment dwara dushmano se hathiyaegai sabhi cheezen sammilit thi. Dushmano se hathiyae machine guns, unke jhande, hathiyar, us samay ke rajao ke bartan evam anek cheezen darshai gai thi. Main jab bhi aisi kisi jagah jaata hun bhartiya sena ke liye mera pyar aur samman aur zyada bhad jaata hai. Jaan pe khela, bachaya hai tumne vatan katre katre se tumne ye seecha chamanBhartiya jawano pr garv karte huye hum vahan se nikle aur bagal main hi shawl ka karkhana dekhne chale gaye. Haath se bante shawl dekhe aur fr shaam tak vapas hotel aa gaye. Pahle din ki shaam bhoole nahin the isliye vapas jangalo main jaane ka man kar raha tha. Fr raat hone tak cheed aur deodar ke jangalo ke beech tahalte rahe. Nazara bahut khoobsurat tha aur lautne ka man nahin kar raha tha, pr andhera ho jane ke karan vaapas aana pada. Raat ko vapas hotel main aakr so gaye.
