SavanDurga Trek!!

Ping !! What are you doing tomorrow ? I replied “Nothing planned”, with a hope that RN would ask for a movie . “Wanna Come for a trek to SAVANDURGA!!” OMG. Didn’t expect this. Nevertheless, trek was on my TODO list since past 5 years and with a hope of some adventure, I said Yes….

Honey, I shrunk my brain again!!

Now that it was already shrunken, I was unable to cope up with any further ramifications and decided to do something about it. As always, I kept on procrastinating, till a post lunch  walk with AS, sorted it all out. Here’s a brief account of my self realisations, self assassinations  and self assessments. Any references…

SinnaDorai – Kadamane

Home away from home, peace and tranquility, silence, solitude, bliss. If not anything more, these adjectives still do not do justice to Sinnadorai – Kadamane. View the intro  here , and let  the scenes unfold, as I take you through the tea estate and its colonial bungalow which are sure to transpose you to an era gone by….

Great Rann – India’s Salt Desert

It had always intrigued me – for long I longed to visit this place on a full moon night to see the beauty in its full glory. And the day finally arrived. We were a bunch of 11 enthusiasts determined to enjoy the Great Rann of Kutch of India. This is one of the biggest salt…

Aina Mahal – Glass Palace

The name intrigued me.  Given the task to figure out places to visit in Bhuj, this was top on my list owing to its nomenclature and closeness to our hotel. First a bit about where I am. 1st January, 2018. We landed in Bhuj, a small town in the state of Gujarat, India. Unassuming, infamous for…

My New Lively Corner

If you have ever been to India or stay in India, I am sure you would have visited at least one place famous for its heritage – in terms of tradition, culture, or handicrafts. Or should I say,  Indian handicrafts are a perfect blend of first two –  a rich combination of tradition and culture…

Day 7: 06/05/2017 Changla, Pangong

It was Dalai Lama’s birthday and we decided to celebrate this day, by visiting the most enchanting beauty of Ladakh – Pangong Tso. But not before crossing the 3rd highest motorable road – Changla Pass. Ascending an altitude always throws in some beautiful shots.  These are captures from a moving object. Wonder how still ,…

Day 6: 05/07/2017 Turtuk, Diksit

After a good night sleep at Hunder camps, we started our journey for Turtuk early morning at 5 AM.  This was a bit disappointing as I would have preferred to wake up to a lazy morning and enjoy a bed tea amidst the lap of nature. However, we had strict instructions from our driver and…

Day 5: 04/07/2017 Khardungla, Nubra, Hunder Sand Dunes

I was tired, travelling and clicking had started taking its toll. Today we were supposed to leave early and head to Nubra via Khardungla pass, which is the highest motor able road in the world.  Supposedly its the second highest, since the highest is not open for general public. I took my tool once we…

Day 4: 03/07/2017 Hemis, Thikse, Sindhu Ghaat, Shanti Stupa

The D Day finally arrived. We were to leave early to attend Hemis Festival, the reason we went to Ladakh with Junglelore.  To me, its like a bonus if I get to attend a local festival while I visit any state or place in India. Yes its crowded, noisy but the atmosphere is always electrifying….
