This beautiful town happens to be located in Jammu & Kashmir and is an abode for those who wish to pursue Buddhism. The ...
Day 2: Julley Leh!Next day we started our journey from Sonamarg to Leh, and we reached Leh by around 6pm. Our stay was arranged at a homestay, very beautiful and cozy. Our trek lead Raj ji would meet us tomorrow morning.It was an amazing yet unique moment to be standing in this desert mountainous paradise. I have always heard about Leh-Ladakh; how its a must visit for every adventure lover, on why you should always visit Ladakh once in your life, and why it satiates the travel pang for every traveler. Well, I'm here. Also the homestay owner showed us what we were not expecting; the indomitable Stok Kangri peak is visible! Woah, that's one massive mountain right there! And to say we are going to climb THAT? I tell you that's one big a$$ mountain I saw.
Come back from pangong tso to Leh and visit local places in leh
From Sarchu or pang to Leh is a long way to go Almost 250-275 kms in single day but now your are on your 3rd day of ride and well adjusted to climate, to bike , to order riders so it can be done Try to reach leh as soon as possible it will give to much rest and you see at bit city life here Mobile networks , internet, better food options , better stays and all other stuff ( there is also one way to go to pangong lake directly without going to Leh first , a way diverts from upshi to pangong lake but it will be more than 350 kms ride thus the regular one is more recommended)
INDUS (SINDHU)- ZANSKAR CONFLUENCE ( SANGAM, Leh)This was our first stop and we really felt like being inside a painting. The two rivers with visibly different shades ( Indus - green and Zanskar - blue) flow through the mighty Himalayas.
KUSHU GUESTHOUSE, LEHWe checked into Kushu Guesthouse in Leh. The people of Ladhak will impress you if you haven’t already got impressed by the sight of this place. The staff here were very friendly & the room was warm and cozy with a view.We took rest for a while because too many people had spoken about altitude sickness but we dint face any such thing.
We were all pepped up for our last day in and around Leh. We decided to travel in a 40km radius to Hemis Monastery (one of the wealthiest Buddhist Monasteries, and rightly so), Thiksey Monastery (a Monastery you can stay in), the Rancho School (where Chatur, from 3 Idiots, got electrocuted) and Shey Palace (remains of the Namgyal Dynasty).
The following day was again a tough ride back to Leh, and the rest of the day went lazing around our crib. For those considering travel to Ladakh, specially with an elderly person, you should consider the following:1. Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS) is real.2. Diamox is the medicine that is suggested as prevention/cure of AMS, but you should consult your family doctor before taking it. My mum and I didn’t need it.3. Sip water every 10-15 mins and drink atleast 3-4 litres of water to avoid AMS.4. Every small activity that involves oxygen including eating, walking and talking can leave you breathless. Keep sipping water and you should be fine.5. High blood pressure medicines don’t entirely work in high altitude.6. Alcohol and smoking/up should totally be avoid.

The land from where once an ancient trade route to China would be embarked on, Manali is an abode for modern creativity ...
The drive to the first campsite, Jobra, lasts just over an hour taking you up the valley, with numerous hairpin bends (some really steep) with some occasionally sightings of apple orchards, right on the road.The campsite at Jobra is a short hike through a thick pine forest. As the trees cast their shadow over the trails, the weather remains pleasant even in bright sunshine. With the thundering Rani river right on your trail, it seems just the perfect setting.
The trek goes a full circle, starting from the green locales of Manali, to the cold barren Spiti and back to square one.
Manali is another ultimate destination for the adventure enthusiasts. The magnificent snow covered peaks and the pine fringed trails along with the endless orchards and pleasing views of Manali has always attracted tourists and adventure seekers. The terrains of Deo Tibba, Chanderkhani Pass, Hanuman Tibba and Rohtang Pass are the best places for heli-skiing at Manali. With the slopes as high as 6000 m, you will definitely be thrilled and have the adventure of your lifetime while heli-skiing at Manali.Auli is a beautiful place with virgin locales and breathtaking views. Auli is also getting noticed as a skiing destination. You will definitely gain the pleasure of heli-skiing at Auli as you fly upto 3000 m and then ski down the pleasant slopes of Auli.
Then, we took a taxi from Barsheni till Manali via Manikaran. We reached Manali at around 11 PM. Next day we covered few of the tourist spots of Manali like Hidimba temple, Vashishta temple etc. The best thing we discovered about Manali was that the city was alive till 2 AM. On ‘Maal Road’ we could see families and children having fun at such an hour while we were discussing our lives and future with a cup of icecream in our hands. That was our last night of that trip and we wanted to enjoy it the most so we were awake for the whole night until we got on board at the last bus and came back into reality from that dreamy place. That adventure will always be missed that time will always be cherished.
So here my journey to Gulaba Base Camp started from Manali. Manali has become overcrowded place these days. It took 2.5 hrs for us to reach Gulaba were one should take hardly 30 mins. So from here we are supposed to reach our first base camp which was 20 mins trail...hold on not the normal trail. We were supposed to climb a 70-degree steep mountain. And during that trail I realised why it is important to do warm up and to work out before going any of the trek. For 20 mins trail we took an hour. What is the difference in India hikes and YHA from my perspective? I did 4 Himalayan treks through YHA and there we used to warm up for 3 days in base camp so that our body gets acclimated for the higher treks. On the other hand, India hikes will directly take you to higher camps as they expect you to be completely fit for the treks. You are supposed to walk daily and send them screenshots on daily basis which is good idea. So finally we reached our Day 1 location at Gulaba (10,370 ft.). We had our refreshments ,then introduction and later on we were told about Medication, Go green Campaign and Overall trek info. Fortunately, we had very good trek leaders with us. We proceeded for dinner then to our tent. The tents were little small and we were told to keep our bags outside the tent still under coverage of tent but not really inside as there were two coverings of the tent. Around 2 at night it started raining heavily, I just popped out of the tent quickly kept our shoes under coverage and then slipped inside my sleeping bag. So here our day one ends ... Our Group at Gulaba Camp Day 2:
3. 'Jab We Met': I love mountains!!!
The weather of the valley didnt allow us to go, as the rain was approaching and we had to climb steep up to the mountain for 4 kms. We were upset but accepted the situation and made a plan to move old Manali. I was visiting Manali after long 3 years, There are many places to visit in Manali. The Hadimba temple, Vashisth hot springs, The mall road, Solang valley and many more. We hunted some good cafes there at the mall road it was snowing there. The sad part was my both the battery of the camera got discharged and was not able to click good picture. After the day out we checked into the beautiful Pinakine cottage, near Nehru kund bridge, Shanag Village. I recommend all the readers who are planning to visit Manali, book their stay in this cottage it has marvelous view and is situated in a very good location the services are best in a very minimal cost. And if you are in a big group and want some discounts then let me know . The next morning i had to catch the bus and was the time to go back to the pavilion .it was a perfect meet with my friend and was nice spent new year . and Time to say good bye to the mountains with a promise to see you soon .
Manali-DelhiToday was a free day in Manali and we had a bus booked for Delhi in the evening. We went to explore places like Hidimba Temple, and some cafés in Old Manali. Old Manali is a beautiful place with a lot of cafes and figure licking taste. We went to Café Bella Vista and Café 1947 both are superb cafés and food and atmosphere is overwhelming. We reached Manali Private bus stand at 6pm and said goodbye to the beautiful Himachal.It is always the same with mountains, once you have lived with them for any length of time, you belong to them. THERE IS NO ESCAPE.
Manali-Solang- Gulaba PassToday we decided to take a bullet for a drive on Manali roads. We rented bikes at Rs 1200 each and left for Solang valley. There are two options for snow points near Manali 1.) Rohtang Pass 2.) Solang Valley. Due to heavy snowfall few days back road to Rohtang was closed. We went to solang and it was full of people. People mostly come there to enjoy adventure activities like Paragliding, snow skiing, rope way etc. We didnt enjoy anything due to traffic and we left Solang in search of a better place. We drove on the road which leads to Rohtang/Leh in search of a place where we can enjoy the snow. In search of it we came across Gulaba pass which is the highest point which is operational during winters. Gulaba pass was on hell of a experience we enjoyed playing in snow, making snowman , snow slides and what not. We left gulaba pass and reached back to manali at night.

Amritsar has made a huge contribution to Indian history and is the holiest hub for Sikhs. The name of the city, which me...
This trip goes down the memory lane to last year of our college(2017) when we decided to visit hometown of one of our best friends (at amritsar). A place dedicated to religious sentiments and a place where the only season who you will find is spring for all the year long. First picture was taken when we were returning from the Wagha Border (India Pakistan Border). On our way back home, we took courage to walk some extra steps (not on the wrong line) to capture the seraphic beauty of this scenery. Other pictures focused on the holy place Golden Temple and the last two are from our way down to Wagha Border.
3) Makhan Fish and Chicken Corner SINCE 1962:This one is undoubtedly best Non –vegetarian restaurant in Amritsar. They are famous because of special ‘Amritsari Fish’ but their chicken dishes are equally amazing. It is one such restaurant that is listed on top of every foodie's wish list list & claimed to be the best chicken/Fish corner in the world by its fans and customers. This place is every bit as good as claimed.
Amritsar, a city having real essence of India. Filled with spirituality, the city provides you with real experience of being in India. Golden Temple, Punjabi food, Bhangra, and so on you will get all in one place. Not only this, visiting Wagha Border will fill you with the feeling of real patriotism.
Wagah Border, Punjab (India – Pakistan)Wagah border is a must visit for anyone who wants to witness Indian soldiers basking in glory and conducting ceremony every day before dusk. In the ceremony, the gates between the two countries open only for few minutes and soldiers from both the countries pay respect to each other. The border is located in the village of Wagah which 36km from the city of Amritsar.
After a month of cajoling, the college authorities finally gave in to our demands of organising a trip to Amritsar. It was our final year in the college, and so, the whole idea of visiting Amritsar with college friends seemed fascinating. We chalked out an interesting itinerary for the trip, got it approved from the authorities and were all geared up to enjoy the trip to the hilt.The most awaited day came and I, along with my friends, was standing at the platform desperately waiting for the train to arrive. The chaotic vicinity of Delhi's Railway station never failed to enthuse me. Scores of people moving back and forth, porters carrying heavy baggage and monkeys, jumping over the railway tracks were hilarious sights to watch. After a few minutes, our train stamped in, creating a lot of noise and Commotion. At its halt, we rushed to enter the compartment and started vouching for opportune seats to sit. Within a few minutes, the train started moving. The excitement in the train gradually built up. The journey was a joyous one as everyone was busy singing songs, dancing and gorging on home cooked delicacies. Eight hours elapsed and we reached Amritsar-the city synonymous with patriotism and spirituality. The narrow lanes of the city reminded me of Chandni Chowk in Delhi. We stepped out of the railway station and hopped in the buses to reach our hotels. We were asked to freshen up before visiting the pious Golden Temple. Traditional attire was preferable there and so we all were ready in our suits with dupattas tied on our head. Our bus stopped a kilometre away from the temple. We had to cover the distance on foot. There was a guide along with us who briefed us about the ins and outs of the temple.
On our Day 1 , I had planned to start my sightseeing with a Museum that is dedicated to the biggest & mightiest kings of Punjab, King Ranjit Singh.1) Ranjit Singh Museum
Day 4 - Reach AmritsarHence, next day morning we checked out of the hotel and decided to head towards Amritsar.There are few buses which directly go to Amritsar one was in morning around 6.30-7.00 am and another one at 9.40 am. We could not reach for the direct bus on time and hence the other option available to us was to travel to Pathankot from Dalhousie to Amritsar (If Pathankot buses are unavailable take a bus from Dalhousie to Banikhet to Pathankot to Amritsar or private cabs)We booked a cab from Dalhousie to Pathankot and from there we took a bus to AmritsarPAJABA NU SAVAGATA - WELCOME TO PUNJAB folks!!Once you step on the land of Punjab, particularly Amritsar you will get a feeling that you have entered a flashback zone in Modern India (stepped into 1947 Punjab)Amritsar is a holy city in the state of Punjab because of its beautiful and unique Gurudwara - Golden temple. It is the spiritual and cultural centre for Sikh religion. As much as Amritsar is well known for Golden Temple, you will be amazed by the variety of food dishes in each lane specially near Golden Temple
Getting to know from the locals and my hotel reception, i followed their advise and went to LADDI KULCHA shop (a small kulcha shop) for having a brunch before leaving for home. And i must say it was the tastiest kulcha that i had ever had .It was time , so i before checking out from the room , i went to the GOLDEN TEMPLE once again and checked out and headed straight to the bus stand for getting the bus back to JAMMU.OVERALL TRIP COST: RS 2500-2800TRAVEL COST: RS 800-900( total to Amritsar and back home , inside amritsar,wagah etc )MEALS COST: RS 500(6 FULL MEALS+ SNACKS +TEA ETC)SIGHTSEEING COST: RS 350-500ACCOMODATION COST: RS 1100
It took me about 5 hours to get there bcz there were multiple stops and toll booths in the way.Finally there (AMRITSAR), bus stand is not far away from town hall area(where GOLDEN temple, jallianwala bagh is)Tip: if u dont have much baggage, just walk to the Golden temple(10 mins) if u cannot or dont want to walk , take an e-rickshaw(pay Rs30 maximum).I reached my stay place at 5:30 pm (one can also stay at room at golden temple, but don't know about availability and price). Checked in and freshened up , moved out to have my lunch cum dinner(bcz i didn't have lunch while travel). BHARAWAN DA DHABHA(restaurant , near town hall on the way to GOLDEN TEMPLE COMPLEX) was my first spot to visit for food. ordered a THALI and the taste+quantity+service was superb for RS. 160. I kept golden temple on my list at the bottom for day 1(bcz the night view is BREATHE TAKING) ,i went to the GOBINDGARH FORT(by e - rickshaw RS 40 )to see the 2 museums ,7D show based on MAHARAJA RANJIT SINGH , WHISPERING WALLS light and sound show , walk around the fort ,live cultural performance ) all for a ticket of RS 250-300 per person. and i will never ever forget that amazing evening.

McLeodganj is a small suburb in the city of Dharamshala. It is also the headquarters of the Tbetan - Government in exile and has plenty of monasteries if one wants to visit. Monks are a common sight in this small suburb. The peaceful McLeodganj is ideal as a last stop or destination as it provides the perfect atmosphere for calming the senses. McLeodganj is also called the 'Little Lhasa' or 'Dhasa' by the locals who reside over there. Various charitable organizations operate from McLeodganj for the Tibetan cause.
From Chandigarh, I had a full day of riding (on the roughest paved road I’ve ever seen) to get to Mcleodganj. What’s in Mcleodganj? The Dalai Lama and Mountains. I didn’t see the Dalai Lama, but I did go through the temple. Right before I had to give up my camera, they had this huge banner honoring Tibetans that had self-immolated…grim. Of course, I had to do a little hiking in the mountains. Back home, friends and I would often joke about how it’d be great to have a beer/food/etc. waiting at the end of a big hike or climb. To my surprise, this dream finally came true. At the top of this ridge line, there was a little shop where I warmed up with a nice cup of coffee.
The home of the Dalai Lama is a perfect place to relax and unwind. Lush green mountains, monasteries, western cafes. The place has a lot to offer. Weekends are packed, given its proximity to states of Punjab and Haryana, while weekdays are more calm and relaxed. We spent 2 days in the city, lazing around, exploring local cuisine and visiting the nearby monastries.

Indian Himalayas is full of epic and memorable road routes. From the world’s highest motorable roads for adventure junkies to some of the most serene — there’s something for everyone. Where some routes — particularly the Manali-Leh and the Buddha Circuit in Spiti Valley — have seen a dramatic increase in the number of tourists in the previous years, some are still pretty untapped. They are, in fact, so untapped and offbeat in their nature that hardly any tourist visit them throughout the year, despite having all the facilities a tourist may need — from Google defined roads to enough accommodation options on route. And one such route in the Jammu region in J&K lies in and around the Bhaderwah Valley.During my recent motorbiking trip in Himalayas with Jammu and Kashmir tourism, earlier in September, under the campaign of ‘Exploration of unseen places’ in J&K region, we did a 7 day road trip from Jammu to Killar, and back. The trail took us to some of the highlighted (yet unfrequented) valleys and the many unspoken towns.From passes over 10,000 feet above sea level and roads otherwise known as the world’s deadliest, this is the routemap for Jammu to Killar road-trip in J&K:
I have heard a lot of legendary stories about Full moon party from my friends, and I have been looking to go there and break free from a long time, till I made a plan with two of my best buddies. We have been planning it for a while but nothing was coming in place. So one day we were sitting over a coffee and started discussing about it on a conference call and bang that was the beginning of a fantastic trip. I am from Jammu and my other friends live in Delhi and Bangalore respectively. The best option for all of us was to meet in Kolkata as the flights were very cheap from Kolkata to Bangkok.
Our Journey Started from Jammu and our destination for day one was Basholi, a small quaint town situated in the middle of hills of Shiwaliks. The major attraction of this town are the famous Basholi Paintings, Basholi bridge that connects JnK with Himachal and the beautiful Ranjit Sagar Dam lake. Though I didnt know about the paintings, I googled about Basholi when I came back :P that's why it is always advised to do proper RnD before you go anywhere. The road from Jammu to Basholi is still under construction with good and bad patches. The best place to stay is a Gov. Guest House which has a nice view of lake and the Basholi bridge with access to the lake as well.
We reached Jammu and then from there we book a Innova for Pahalgam it’s around 280km from Jammu but its very long journey (around 9hrs)You can visit :

Never forget the spiritual aspects of travellingNext short road trip was to a Holy place, a 14Km trek to the Temple of Vaishnodevi in Jammu. This was the final destination for my recovery journey, and I made sure that the higher power was involved in my ordeal for a healthier life. It seemed like a fitting “rite of passage”. There, I worshipped and thanked God for giving me a new life. I was grateful for a new reason to live in happiness, after being through some hardships.

Gulmarg is synonymous with beauty so stunning that finding another place like it would be impossible. From its overwhelm...
5. Gulmarg- You can get to Gulmarg from Mazhom or Baramulla Station. You can get taxis from the Railway Station to take you up to the Snow-Clad Peaks of Gulmarg.
Gulmarg, the quintessential winter sports destination of India is no doubt a prime place for heli-skiing. The Mount Apharwat is the best place for the heli-skiers with its perfect slopes and snow. Apart from that the marvellous beauty of Gulmarg with its silvery peak and the line of fir and pine trees makes this place a delectable destination for heli-skiing.
Gulmarg: One word come “Gondola Ride” there are 2 phase in gondola ride.1st Phase: It’s normal so anybody go there oxygen level is good and there you will enjoy some good food, Bike ride to the snow, there you also enjoy sledging.2nd Phase : The view around you is like heaven on earth because of low oxygen level infants are not allowed on top. There you will enjoy skiing and sledging and reach on the top.Over all gondola ride is most amazing experience. Its height 1400ft (2nd Phase) I recommend to stay in Gulmarg at least one night. I enjoyed rain there and that was awesome if you are lucky then might be you will also enjoy and feel the rain.
This day we started off early and headed to Gulmarg. It was a day trip to Gulmarg and we went to Sonmarg for stay from there. Gulmarg was one beautiful place with lot of pine trees and valleys. Way to Gulmarg was fabulous.W e saw a valley flowing by road and stopped there for a while. After we reached Gulmarg , we had two options : Afarwat peak through gondola and khilanmarg through horse with several stops. We chose Khilanmarg as we experienced Gondola and snow a lot. And this was our best decision. We rented out jackets and we were on horses the next moment. In these places , the guide you get is as important as place. We got a very good guide here. The horses soon went into pine trees. We were seeing nature at its best. Our horse even crossed small water bodies and we felt like kings and queens. Then we were at a point where there were all snow capped mountains and the view was perfect. Next stop was view Reshi baba mandir/mosque from a mountain top. Then we headed to a childrens' park and this was magical. Park was green and there was water flowing through it with a small bridge across water. We were into water the next moment not even caring about how cold the water is. We spent a lot of time there. Then we headed to Khilanmarg. Khilanmarg had very murky ice. It was long time it snowed there as it was summer. We didnot do much there except for sledging in ice. Then we came down and started for Sonmarg. Our Sonmarg hotel was right in front of the mountain. We checked in to hotel, had dinner and relaxed for our next exciting day.
The initial need that I had to reach the top had now being overtaken by the amusement of being on the track-path and sitting down at the cottages, having Nun chai (salt tea- Kashmiri tea). After a long journey up the mountain we finally reached. I could tell by the beams of sun that landed on my face, a reward for making it up so far. It was the most miraculous feeling I ever had, maybe it was the reason I was brought to India, to watch the blue skies kissing the mountain top, which was in the veils of white snow. I felt that I was on the peak of the world, and everything else is below my feet, and no one can reach me. I could see people climbing up below, like tiny dots. They would reach anytime soon. The feeling was so magical that I had not realized my palms turning red, with the unbearable cold that my body was exposed to for the first time in my life. Blood ran up to my top layer of paled skin to fight the strong breeze against me, but it was not powerful enough to kill the smile on my face out of the happiness. Surprisingly, Abid was not scolding me for not bringing proper winter clothes. Instead he was beaming, with a broad smile on his face that touched the corners of his ears as he watched me gradually picking my breath. He was equally happy as I was, to have been the pioneer to bring me to Kashmir, which till now has become a home than any other to me and will always be.
God himself showers light upon this place. And the people there, they couldn't be any more generous in their attitude. Even in a state of curfew, they helped the tourists, the families to get to a safer place, and offered them all the help they could give selflessly.
This summer vacations, my family decided to land on the one place that hits every Indian Middle class family's vacation list, yes-Kashmir! It truly is the 'Heaven on Earth', with the green flowing all around,naturally growing flowers making it even more beautiful, those horses, the hills, and the clouds completing the image of a fairyland.
Gulmarg ("Meadow of Flowers") is a town, a hill station, a popular skiing destination and a notified area committee in Baramula district in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. The town is within the Himalayas and is within miles of the Line of Control between India and Pakistan. ccording to CNN, Gulmarg is the "heartland of winter sports in India." Gulmarg was being mooted as a possible host for the 2010 Commonwealth Winter Games. As such, Gulmarg has been rated by CNN International as Asia's seventh best ski destination. This resort is famous because of its "Gulmarg Gondola," one of the highest cable car in the world, reaching 3,979 metres. The two-stage ropeway ferries about 600 people per hour to and from the gondola main station in Gulmarg to a shoulder of nearby Mt. Apharwat Summit (4,200 m (13,780 ft)). The ropeway project is a joint venture of the Jammu and Kashmir government and French firm Pomagalski.
