The hunger to travel never ends. This endless lust for travel is relatable with all the wanderlust out there. Yeah, well, even I’m not able to travel, thus what to do? 

There is a way to break this, read books, by reading books on travel we can satisfy our wanderlust in the tough corona times. Keep reading…

When you enter a search into Google on why we travel, it takes you to detailed articles of ‘Can travel make you more creative?’, ‘Can travel make you fall in love?’ and much more. While some of these may be completely clickjacking, I can’t help but admire the emphasis we all have on the act called travelling. 

Now as we all are chained to chair at work for a long time which does not seem to end soon, I pay my, condolences to my friends who are in dire need of a holiday and aren’t able to. When you have this kind of heartbreak, only a quick trip can fix it. But sadly not right now, in the times of Corona Pandemic. 

I feel sad to hear the stories of lockdown, with no pleasure of travel at all. And then I hear lockdown on the borders and travel ban imposed across the world. I can’t help but feel a sting of worry. Some of us have lovers self-isolating 8,000 miles away and that seems like an unreasonable situation to be in. But if I thought mine was a sad story too, but it’s hard not to think the world without travel writers, travel influencers, content writers, reporters, whose duties are connected with free movement and travel all over and now almost verbose in a worldwide lockdown.

Now that we are in isolation because of the pandemic-inflicted world, free movement is like a distant dream. The month of April is usually when people move out for travel as the exams get over, then Good Friday and other long weekends. Regrettably, for most of us, COVID-19 has assured the derailment of our travel plans. Nevertheless, when one inspiration runs dry, there are many others to keep yourself immerse into positive things. 

So whatever your reasons for travel may be, post-Corona you guys will have to wait for a longer time as the travel industry will be the worst hit. Small hotels, homestays, will have a hard time to recover. I would recommend you to get yourself your favourite cup of tea of a cup or coffee, then, find your much-loved corner or a place on the couch and let the travel stories take you to an exile, many miles away.

Pico Iyer’s Autumn Light: Season of Fire and Farewells (2019)

“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again—to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.”

 

In his most recent publication, Iyer snaps down his view on travel on answering to his longtime home in Japan. As a nation whose calendar is characterised by occasions to honour the dead, come autumn, he represents Japan from a new prospect and directs on the mundane routines that unite people’s lives. 

 

Amitav Ghosh’s In an Antique Land (1992)

“But now, travelling down that road after so many years I felt no excitement at all, only an old, familiar sensation, one that had always accompanied me on my way back from Damanhour, no matter whether I’d been away an hour or a week: the lassitude of homecoming mixed with a quiet sense of dread.”

 

Known as one of his best works, Ghosh takes the reader on a journey from England to Egypt by this book. He goes in quest of a despicable slave from the 12th century, but during his travels, he meets the interaction of varied faiths, holy men, retailers and alchemists. His story is one that genres and ages and envelops the reader in a well-travelled past.

 

Shivya Nath’s The Shooting Star (2018)

“I remember the years I had been too afraid to dream of sitting on the ledge of a humble yellow house, chatting with a family that wasn’t my own, chatting in a language that wasn’t my own, in a part of the world so far away from the one I grew up in and yet not that different.”

 

Shivya Nath’s debut bestows her story from when she quit her 9-to-5 corporate job and travelled the world for seven years, the last two without a permanent address. Her goal to convert from an average girl to a free-movement soul is apparent throughout the book and she endeavours to create a new life and reinvent herself through this journey from the foothills of the Himalayas to the tropics of Ecuador. 

 

Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love (2006)

“Traveling is the great true love of my life… I am loyal and constant in my love of travel. I feel about travel the way a happy new mother feels about her impossible, colicky, restless newborn baby—I just don’t care what it puts me through. Because I adore it. Because it’s mine. Because it looks exactly like me.”

 

One of the bestsellers of 2006 and later a blockbuster on the big screen in 2010, Eat, Pray, Love is a must-read for readers viewing to hit the reset switch on their lives. Following her divorce, Gilbert travels to Italy, India and Indonesia, learns a new language, submerges herself in a new culture and along the way takes an inward journey into what it means to truly be happy with oneself.

A hidden gem…Grand Canyon Of India

 

Gandikota: The Grand Canyon of India Travel Blog

 

Well, you may be surprised by what the title is all about, but trust me you will be amazed to know that a grand canyon also exists in India. Gandikota is the place, (Grand Canyon Of India) a beautiful and stunning paradise in the heartland of Bangalore. It is a weekend getaway from Bangalore. Just right on the spot, it is a destination which you would be awe-struck to visit.

In India we do not witness gorge formations, thus it is also called as the Indian version of the grand canyon or desi grand canyon. As an avid traveller, I shall refrain myself of not comparing the two as it will not be a justice to these different destinations in the world.

Gandikota The Grand Canyon of India Travel Blog

So, let us know more about Gandikota Gorge formations or Gandikota Canyon:

It is a quaint and very simple village in the Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh. It is known for its panoramic gorge formed by river Pennar that pierces through the Erramala hills. This impressive piece of Nature’s design has come to be known as the Hidden Grand Canyon of India by the tourists and travellers who visit this place and get beguiled by its beauty. Thus they tend to compare the Grand Canyon in Arizona.

 

Gandikota The Grand Canyon of India Travel Blog

What to do when in Gandikota

Sitting on the banks of Pennar river and enjoying breathtaking views you can’t even think how the river must have broken the cuts and formed this stunning gorge. It is believed that the river has cut the slabs over centuries now. This is beautiful to imagine how the flow of water got intruded by the river and has formed the gorge. The entire area is covered with deep dense valleys and huge granite boulders.

Going back to history – Geologists says that it has an important role to play in the history of Andhra Pradesh. Geologist P.D. Sabale studies and explains how it was formed. The River Pennar cuts the pink granite and makes abed rock here. Cutting the ingenious, acidic and hard compact mass of granite the natural decomposition of the rock took place.

 

Gandikota The Grand Canyon of India Travel Blog

 

Adjoining the formations is the medieval fort which speaks history in itself. The fort Gandikota is named from a Telugu word Gandi which means gorge. This fort holds a fort and a temple. Once you visit you will get mesmerized with the ancient architecture. You may find the debris scattered of the ruins of temples and mosque dating back from the Qutub Shahi and Vijayanagara periods.

Other spots to visit in Gandikota are – Madhavaraya temple and Raghunathaswamy temple, Jamia Masjid of Gandikota fort, Rayalacheruvu Lake, enthralling interiors of Belum Caves, you can also do camping and other water activities.

How to reach: Get a train from Gooty Junction. The nearest airport is at Kadapa 77 km. Nearest town by road is Jammalamadugu.

Lodging: APTDC Complex – it is spread at 12 acres, you can book a cottage and has an area for kids to play. For more hotels click here

Best Time: between September to February as the weather is suitable and enjoyable, else the summers are like 45-50 degrees.

Tip: there are not many food joints near the fort and temples, thus either take some munching with you or keep your stomach fill before you start your day. Carry some candies and lots of water.

There are numerous other attractions in and near the village that charm visitors. The most special being the antiquated, radiant Gandikota fort that sits wonderfully on top of the gorge. Apart from the unmatched majesty of the gorge, the mystical appeal of this fort makes a visit to this village all the more compelling for history lovers and adventure seekers.

Leh Ladakh’s post Article 370 Defunct

 

leh ladakh post article 370 blog

FAQs – Leh Ladakh’s post Article 370 Defunct

  • Will my trip get affected post article 370?
  • Can I pass Srinagar – Kargil route via Leh?
  • Is Srinagar highway safe to bike ride?
  • Leh Ladakh is a UT now, will it affect tourists like me?
  • Is it safe to stay and roam in Leh Ladakh?
  • How about my flights’ tickets! Shall I cancel?
  • I’m a travel blogger and working on a travel project will it get affected?
  • Shall I think twice now to visit Leh Ladakh in the august end?

Well, many apprehensions and questions that are hovering your mind regarding the Leh Ladakh post Article 370 Defunct and it’s tourism and maybe your visit to this beautiful destination. It is viable as well, and this is because of the current situation of Leh Ladakh due to article 370 defunct.

Let me take you to the blog – Leh Ladakh’s post Article 370 Defunct, where you will find it completely safe to travel to this gorgeous destination which is now a UT – Union Territory.

Article 370 has been thinned, Jammu & Kashmir has been departed from Ladakh–and the two sections have become separate Union Territories. Expecting trouble, the government of India have asked tourists and pilgrims to move out, and have deployed a huge amount of soldiers and troops into the state. The situation is unpredictable – yes, it is true, as of now and no one knows how things will gonna be in coming days. The only affected highway currently is – Srinagar-Leh highway – Srinagar, Gulmarg, Pahalgam and other parts of Kashmir Valley are on a tension zone. But when we talk about Leh & Ladakh? No, is the answer (According to CNT‘s report Angrub Dorje, who runs Discover Ladakh has stated, “Both Leh and Ladakh are completely safe.) 

 

ladakh leh tourism due to 370 article spirited blogger

 

Let’s have a check – It is a regular day here in Ladakh, the schools are open, the internet is working, access to local market and regions around is pretty safe. The tourist spots are open and many of the tour and travel agencies will now take you to Leh-Ladakh via the Manali-Leh highway. (as quoted by WanderOn’s Leh-Ladakh tour package guy – they are taking the troupe via the same highway – Manali – Spiti Valley).

The business is usual here in Leh Ladakh, as the local transport has not been affected here. As of now, no restrictions have been implemented on transport, in fact, it is safe and we have tourists here who are enjoying their holidays. (it is when the CNT team spoke to locals and 3-4 tour operators).

Even though the circumstances in the paradise of India – Jammu & Kashmir is unpredictable and scary, the region of Ladakh is truly safe, with no indications of tightness and fury. So, plan without thinking twice.

As mentioned by – Tsering Angmo, Assistant Director of Tourism, is asking people not to worry. “Everything is normal in Leh. The airports are completely accessible. I would recommend anyone who is visiting to not worry at all.” (CNT report). There has being a bit of tension on Srinagar border as vehicles are being stopped but that’s all is a precautionary measure for Kashmiris and tourists out there. As the bill is also passed in Rajya Sabha by 2/3 majority.

 

ladakh leh tourism due to 370 article Spirited Blogger

If you are travelling by flights –

  • If flying to Leh – flights on Vistara, IndiGo, GoAir and Air India are on time as of now.
  • If you’re flying to Jammu and Srinagar, IndiGo has waived the fare on all cancellations and rescheduling of tickets (charges on fare difference will be applicable if any) to Jammu till 9 August.
  • If you’re flying to Srinagar: After announcing a cap on fares at Rs9,500, Air India has further lessened its ticket prices to Rs6,715 from Srinagar to Delhi and at Rs6,899 from Srinagar to Delhi till 15 August.

Katal Dhar | Lonavla | The secluded and mysterious waterfall | Travel Blog Trek

Katal Dhar waterfall Spirited Blogger Travel Trek Blog

Somewhere near Mumbai or somewhere in Maharashtra, you may find this amazing waterfall which I would love to mention in this travel blog. It will not be somewhere, technically but amidst the mountains, Sahyadri, and the gorgeous standing ranges in Maharashtra, you find – Kataldhar waterfall. The name is intriguing, isn’t it? Katal means a form of rock – Dhar is the brink sharp edge of a sword or a knife. In short – “Katal” means a Rock & “Dhar” means a Waterfall.

Katal Dhar The mysterious waterfall Spirited Blogger Travel Trek Blog

You must be thinking why this explanation is given here, because when you will see the pictures and would explore the waterfall with me, and you may find that how sharp and steep the waterfall is that can kill you with its awe-struck views and mesmerising sounds.


About the fall – This is a Natural Waterfall, which completely depends on Rains. It is close to Lonavala and can be reached from Mumbai as well. As in Monsoon Lonavala becomes the most popular destination for all the Trekkers, but apart from all these resorts and clubhouses there’s this waterfall and “Kataldhar Waterfall Trek”. This trek gives you the real trekking pleasure in rains. Imagine that you are rappelling down from this waterfall which is at the top of around 350 feet with an overhang of more than 100 feet. The most important point is the gear and clothing when you trek to this fall. Everyone, please wear Full Sleeves & Full Track pants to avoid power bite from insects. Once you reach the base the entire valley will surprise you with gigantic waterfalls of Kataldhar. The waterfall is near Lonavla in Pune district – Maharashtra. It is basically not very famous among the travellers but it is certainly secluded and worth a visit. It is also because to reach the valley is a bit tough job and you need some basic experience of trekking before exploring this place.

 

The views and the beauty of the waterfall:

As soon you enter the forest, the sound of the chirping birds would thrill you, you will forget the city’s life and all the hustle and bustle that keeps you worrying about everything. To make the way to the waterfall is really tough as you need proper maps and directions to reach the valley (see the picture in the end). The most important thing is the instincts that make you reach the spot as you will find hardly anyone there. After walking some distance, the sound of the water falling from the distance got will get you there. Ahah! Well, the view to die for…

 

 

 

When I visited My heart filled with joy and started frisking.. and I knew that it’s the waterfall which I was looking for, From the spiky bushes and botchy trails, the point to witness is a huge waterfall, with thundering water currents. But how to get this waterfall? – While walking on the route keep watching and looking for the letters coloured in White on the Big Rock as “ Kataldhar Waterfall”. One more thing there are two 2 identical mango trees that identify the waterfall way. See some of the pictures below. Keep following the path and you would find some more pebbles coloured that will exactly take you to the waterfall. For any trekker, it is worth a visit and a surreal trek to go for this monsoon.  

As a solo traveller, I would say please visit this amazing waterfall and get drenched in the views.

Lahual & Spiti Valley Homestay Travel Blog

Wander with me in the most stunning and breathtaking landscapes of India which is incomparable with anything in the world. Well, I have not travelled the world but I would definitely say that Spiti Valley is one of the gorgeous valleys of the Himalayas. As I discovered the dazzling sceneries, deep-blue lakes, barren terrain, sun-kissed white peaks, and wildlife with some of the remotest villages of India. I have been touched by the magic of Spiti, and I know you will be too. For knowing more about Spiti and the places to see read my blog here…

And for the exploration in its true sense and warming and cosy homestay and accommodation in Spiti valley, keep reading below.

Lahual & Spiti Valley Homestay Travel Blog

If you want to travel around Spiti in the real sense, then staying with a local family in their house, eating and cooking with them whilst enjoying the local food like what they eat and how they cook is one of the best ways to go about it. Homestays in Spiti are a very common concept today and a different way of lodging. It gives you acumen into how punitive life is at such altitudes where people have to scuffle every day in extreme climatic conditions and terrain. Thus, staying in a homestay will offer you a sense of serenity and delight like no other. In fact, you can move out with a local to their fields, and help them cook food, sitting next to the ‘tandoor’ – which is a local heater. Enjoying the grazing lands of their cattle is a sight not to miss when in Spiti.

Lahual & Spiti Valley Homestay Travel Blog

Here are the best Homestays to stay when you are in Spiti Valley and do consider them as my personal review and recommendation as well:

Solo Yolo – Kaza

Incredible Spiti, amazing Kaza – though Kaza has numerous homestays and hostels to stay and relive the homely feeling amidst clouds and mountains, my favourite is Solo Yolo. Many foreigners and Indian travellers love to stay here. It is situated in Kaza near to a cricket playground which makes it an ideal place for stargazing in the night and view of the mountains and snow from the windows. The rooms are cosy and comfortable. The dining place is yet another spot not to miss. What about the caretakers – man, they are superbly friendly and happy going. They would help you with everything you need for your stay and roaming around in Kaza.

Sunny Mountain View – Chitkul

India’s last village on the border of Indo-china – it is in the Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh. While my trip to Spiti valley I happen to stay one night in Chitkul. The view of Bapsa River, Mathi temple to get a glimpse of the ancestors, and the population of around 700 people who live here since ages – are worthy to pay a visit. You may find cheap hotels and affordable homestays and zostels in Chitkul. Where I stayed was the Sunny Mountain View which is owned by Mr Chetram Ji – an old man but young at heart. The rooms are clean with subtle wooden work. You get the balcony and the view from every window of the room – just be there once and rekindle your love for mountains and India’s last village where our road ends.

Kesang Homestay – Tabo

Tabo is a small town in the Lahaul and Spiti district that lies on the banks of the Spiti River. This place has a charm of Tibetan and Buddhism culture and you may see it influential enough in the entire terrain and breeze. Tabo is an absolute gem and the homestay where I stayed is Kesang Homestay – it is just on the road of Gompa Bus stand and what a beautiful and peaceful place to live in. The rooms are pretty spacious, clean and comfortable. The super friendly owner with her gracious smile will make you feel rejuvenated. I happen to get the opportunity to taste local Tibetan food too. She helped me to get plenty of local knowledge and places to see in Tabo. With this friendliness and warmth, it is a great place to stay.

Other than this in Chandrataal was the Camping Tents

This lake is at the surface level of 4250m; it is in the middle of the Himalayas and falls under Spiti Valley. This moon lake is wedged deep within the mighty Himalayan ranges which gives you spectacular views and positive aura to be there. For staying options – you only have tents there as the human population is not allowed to make hotels and also it remain closed for three months from October to January end, until the snow descends. I too stayed in a tent there – a very clean and undisturbed tent with attached bathroom. It has extra blankets for the dipping temperature which goes to even -8 to -10 degree Celsius in October and a bed in good condition. You are served with fantastic ginger lemon honey tea clubbed with breakfast and dinner with local flavour. Anything at that altitude where survival is tough is just a divine feeling.

Spiti Valley – the moment this name comes, a lot of people get amazed and ask ohh, is this in India and if yes where? This is a hidden isolated world in Himachal Pradesh which is a wonder in itself. This blog is close to my heart and you will get to read more such on Spiti valley as this place is a treasure chest for me and I’m sure many traveller enthusiasts would agree with me.

Treasure chest – just two words to say about a world that was forbidden to visitors for about 30 years. Travelling to Spiti Valley is like Time Travel, you tend to get a feeling of getting in a time machine and travel to a world and time unknown. Wow! Goosebumps.

 

Spiti Valley - Himachal Pradesh
Spiti Valley – Himachal Pradesh

This blog is based on my recent 10-day bike travel to Spiti valley with a rider me being a pillion on Royal Enfield 500 cc. In particular, this blog is about 6 reasons to visit Spiti Valley – the hidden treasure of Himachal Pradesh. So let’s start by knowing the place a bit.

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity.” – John Muir

This all belongs to Spiti that lies across the main range of Himalayas, called the Trans-Himalaya. But hey, wait, what are those things that come to your mind when we think about Himalaya. Spiti is 13,800 square kilometres of untamed land. Lush green meadows, misty mountains with dense pine forests, snowing ranges, and soaring high snow peaks. On the contrary, if I say you won’t get to see much of these in Spiti valleys then? What I wanted to say is – Spiti is the complete divergence of all that, but just as beautiful as the other side of Himalayas.

Spiti Valley is a cold desert mountain valley that is situated in the Himalayas – the north-eastern part of Himachal Pradesh. It is the land of barren hills, gorgeous lakes, grey scree slopes, rubble rocks, muddy terrains, and some of the world’s highest inhabited villages that are secluded with the least of 30 humans, and as their population and not more than 100 people in one village at the max. it is a land of beautiful monasteries hovering histrionically over its landscape. The touch of desolateness and a sense of ancient civilisation are some add-ons. The name “Spiti” means “The Middle Land”, i.e. the land between Tibet and India. Let’s find out reasons to visit this unadulterated and hidden treasure that has gradually getting transformed into an exotic tourist destination. Let’s see…

Reason 1

Spiti valley is also home to the highest motorable village in Asia – Komic it is a beautiful scenic village where the temperature dips to -30 degrees Celsius in winters. The landscapes are amazing that will leave you awe-struck.

The world's highest village with a road: Komik, Spiti Valley, Himachal Pradesh

This village has a population of around 50 to 60 people. The houses here, separated by swish lawns and green threads of the loom with wooden windows and doors, very Indo-Tibetan feel. This set up gives everyone enough room to bask in the winter sun. These houses are a welcome change from our congested city houses.

Reason 2

Spiti is the secluded terrain for many visitors yet there is a reason to visit because of plenty of homestays in this scarcely inhabited Spiti. My favourite is Solo Yolo – Kaza and for more on homestays in Spiti read next blog

The best homestays in Spiti Valley

This gives you a wonderful opportunity to the visitors to learn about their culture and stays with locals. Most of these homestays are in the middle of the villages and at a very high altitude giving you the perfect view of the entire valley.

Reason 3

It has a beautiful monastery amidst the mountains that dates back to 996 AD. Key Gompa is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery located on top of a hill at an altitude of 4,166 metres (13,668 ft) above sea level, close to the Spiti River. It is the biggest monastery of Spiti Valley and a religious training centre for Lamas. It reportedly had 100 monks in 1855. You can stay in the monastery and pray in the praying room.

Reason 4

The monasteries are one such reason for not to miss visiting Spiti. There are many monasteries in Spiti that are considered to be the centre of Buddhism; you will get to unwind your soul in this perfect place. Come to stay in monasteries and have some soul-searching.

Reason 5

The glorious and stunning view of the Milky Way at Pin Valley, you get to have them at Tabo and Kaza as well. In fact, Chandra Tal shall not be missed for star gazing and this amazing view to fall in love.

Now that’s a sight we simply don’t get at too many places.

Reason 6

There are dozens of lakes in Spiti that are neatly tucked away in the valley for you to discover. One such major tourist destination known for some of the toughest and exciting motorable roads in India is a stop at Chandra Tal lake – the lake of the moon. It is on the Samudra Tapu plateau overlooking the Chandra River. It is at the altitude of 4,300 metres (14,100 ft) in the Himalayas. Camping by this lake under the starry skies is exactly the kind of life-changing experience you are looking for.

These are some of the reasons to visit Spiti – an offbeat travel destination in India. Here are many more offbeat destinations in India which you can choose for your next travel.

Why fly, if you can swirl the road with your wheels and can explore any destination, any remotest place you wish to! For me as a traveler, road trips, highways are just the thing! In India, there are some amazing highways to get on with your beast and be greedy! Every traveler has its own choice for the road trips, but here’s have a look to some of the best road trips a hitchhiker in India can grab next.. You will not be disappointed for sure! Ahah, and if you the right companion, Ohh My … Bang On!

Nomads can decide to wonder about the “living extensions” in Cherrapunji, taste mixed drinks on the shoreline in Goa or gape at the greatness of the Himalayas. These entire great stimuli are enough to take off the Jack out!

SO, drop the Pegman on a course on Google Maps, and you can look at all encompassing perspectives and shots starting from the earliest stage. Here is the rundown of 6 best trails for freak drivers and highway lovers. India is exceptionally acclaimed by road trips aficionados — where one can cover everything from desert to evergreen woods, mountains to drifts, mud streets to six path interstates.

Mumbai to Goa

From the hustle-bustle to the blue waters is around 677 kms

This road trip can be considered as the “father of all the road trips”. Consistently, a huge number of Mumbai’s bothered obsessive workers head to the shorelines of Goa to de-stress. The NH17 is one of the great highways in India for long drivers especially on weekends, going through the Karnala Bird Sanctuary and offering some really fine perspectives of the stream Vashisti and its marshlands.

mumbai-to-goa

In the midst halt to take a chance to visit the untainted shorelines of Ganpatipule, and investigate the town of Malvan, which brags the notable Sindhudurg fortress constructed by Shivaji. In case you’re going amid mango season that is now heading near I challenge you not to get twelve Ratnagiri alphonso mangoes along the way.

mumbai-goa

Vroom: Given the smooth thruway, suggests making the excursion with your mates in the Audi A3 or a good XUV maybe Mahindra or the best can be your ThunderBird.

Guwahati to Tawang

Flavor of Northeast Untouched India around 521 kms

The east is essentially under spoke to in terms of travel. In any case, the territory’s rich social legacy and characteristic magnificence make for a terrific outing. On this course, you can visit the wettest spot on the planet, Cherrapunji in Meghalaya. While there, stare at the “living scaffolds” assembled of the developing foundations of trees.

sikkim

Visit the World War II burial grounds in Imphal. Top off the excursion by stalking the imperiled one-horned Indian rhino at Kaziranga National Park and going by the Tawang cloister in Arunachal Pradesh.

sikkim-2

Drive by: There’s no preferred car or bike for this excursion over the strong Range Rover. Engulfing the undulating landscape and rough terrain fixes, that you shall or would need a SUV OR XUV for this kind of drive. The Range Rover is doubtlessly up to the errand.

Manali to Leh

Rugged terrain to a sequestered world is around 474 kms

The exemplary Himalayan road trips not to miss out probably with your beloved. Manali to Leh is one of the hardest and most noteworthy streets to explore on the planet. The Manali-Leh road is open only in June when the Border Road Organization (BRO) starts clearing snow. The best time to take this excursion is in the two-month window from August through September (so arrange ahead).

manali-to-leh

The Rohtang Pass offers perspectives of the Beas and Chandra streams. The most astounding pass you’ll experience is Taglang La at 5,359m, after which you start the plummet to Leh. Spend your first night at KeylongKeylong to adjust. The tent camps in Sarchu are a prevalent stop for the second night.

Vroom: If you need to do it right, the Royal Enfield is the best way to ride over the mountains. I would suggest swinging a leg over the Continental GT 535. Indeed there’s space for one and only on it, yet a few things are best sought after solo (haaaaa). Keep in mind to save petrol with you as motorbikes blaze through more fuel than regular at higher heights.

Bengluru to Calicut 500 kms

Southern India’s roads and highways proffer everything from national parks to shorelines along the way. Head to Mysore to admire the city’s rich religious history and further take after the natural life in Nagarhole, Bandipur and Mudumalai.

banglore

Lastly hit the shorelines around Calicut – Kappad and Kozhikode. A three hour bypass south of Kozhikode to the Pada Mardana at the Taj Malabar, Cochin will compensate you with a decent foot knead. There’s an hour long form, in any case 30 minutes is everything you need to feel shiny new once more.

In case you’re a shuddering mass of sore muscles and need some restoring, the Taj Bekal, Kerala does a brain binding and incredible, Pehalwan Maalish, with warming mustard oil.

Drive By: Some of the streets through the slopes are limited, so taking your bike along for the outing is not bad, but at the same time not enough to blow anyone’s mind. The one which I do at this course in is Harley-Davidson’s made-in-India Street 750.

Jaipur – Ranthambore

From the stunning pink city to the Land of boisterous tiger is around 145 kms

A lot of people go to Ranthambore or do the Jaipur-Jodhpur-Jaisalmer circuit. For me, the tour appeals the sandy desert, castles and additionally the richness of untamed life at Ranthambore. Time your endeavor to harmonize with one of the numerous celebrations in Jaipur (the Elephant Festival tops the rundown).

ranthambore-by-road

At Jodhpur, head to the Raas haveli Raas haveli and book yourself in for the Raas Signature treatment at the natural Ila Only spa. It includes a profound tissue rub with simply enough manipulating, walloping and squeezing to get you prepared for the long excursion back home. For something all the more down to business, attempt the 30-moment back and shoulder recuperation rub. (Soothe your senses)

ranthambore

Vroom: Something that is OK with kicking up a tempest in the desert – we’re on to the goliath Mercedes-Benz GL 500. Its 4-wheel drive and astounding footing control make this one hell of a ride to humor you in an episode of sand bay.

GO for the next kicking highway trip…. Review the blog if it strikes you …

Har Har Mahadev! 

रूह है तो शिव है
नहीं तो शव है …. @SpiritedBlogger 

The Bliss of life is the soul which has shiv else it’s just a matter to put to fire !!!!! 

download-lord-shiva-images

Shiva is the gathering force! Shiva is the soul! Har Har Mahadev – means – Shiv is in every soul, every soul has GOD within! Do we know this? How many all you believe that Shiva is a GOD? Intrigued? I used to have this notion, until I read Shiva the Trilogy by  Amish Tripathi …..Although it is long I have read the trilogy, still I’m embraced with the virtues and sequences portrayed by Amish in the book.

Here, my intentions are not to break the conception and faith of people who have a colossal love for -Lord Shiva, but today being MahaShivaratri, while doing my Puja in the morning realized to pen down some words for Shiva, to suffice my love for him since childhood.

The stories associated with Shiva the Lord has been fearless, epic and epitome of the dreadlock and archetypal era. Shiva was a human like any of us who loved his wife, who lived for his nation, who did all good for his community and who was fierce in all what he did. This takes me towards the path of few legendary stories about Shiva …..

935860762

Allow My God!

According to Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva is the Destroyer in the Holy Trinity, the others being Brahma the Creator and Vishnu the Preserver. Shiva has always captivated his followers by his inimitable manifestation and outer shell – The Trimurthi, the third eye, the ash smeared all over his body, the weed and the wilderness of life away from all the social pretenses – Puts him to be one of the most proverbial Lord …

According to the grapevine,  there are some rumors and untold stories about the birth of Shiva..But some say ….Shiva is regarded as an amorphous, infinite, transcendent and ageless absolute Brahman and the primal Atman (soul, self) of the universe. Shiva has many munificent and frightening depictions in the holy books of Hinduism. In compassionate aspects, he is depicted as a preeminent Yogi who lives an abstinent life on Mount Kailash.

He is the ultimate lover as well as a householder for his Parvati (Sati) and a lovely father for his two children, Ganesha and Kartikeya. In his fierce facets he is often illustrated as slaying demons and taking the venom of the whole world to his neck, where it remained and since then he is known as Neelkanth. With so much about Shiva, he is also considered as the Yogi and the mediator who preached the message of being true to yourself and your soul.

I’m in love with Shiva since my childhood, no matter how much I write about him and talk about the untold stories which I heard from my grandparents and read in our mythological books, do not suffice the passion.

1_1448368167

Thanks to Amish Tripathi, to bring out the whole new concept to understand Shiva more than a God with the Shiva Trilogy! The liberator, the savior, the dreadlock of evil…. Till infinity

By means of this blog, I wish everyone to divulge the soul within, applauding HAR HAR MAHADEV!

I guess it will be difficult today to explain this blog in my words. The play that I witnessed during Vifa is not only unforgettable, rather illustrious in nature. I wish you all readers could have had become a part of it, but that’s okay! I hope you could relate it with now !

With no more surprises, the play “Patni” (wife) was a sovereign show played solo by one and only outlandish artist/actor/writer/director Mr. Makarand Deshpande. Before I head over the gist and illustration of the show, I would like to mention #Vifa – Vihaan crew and artists that they have given an opportunity for Bhopal to witness this wonderful act by Makarand during Vifa -2016-17. 

mk3

As the named suggests Patni – An eye-catching story of a husband who lost her wife in an accident, whom he loved intensely.  This latest solo performance was like an untold story that occurs maybe in our lives as well, but we hardly talk to anyone about it. The play was well designed and soulfully executed by Makarand Deshpande. was a treat for the audience. Nobody wanted this performance to finish, but every story has its end…

mk4

He lives for her, he dies for her, he shares every moment with her, despite she is no more, still, she is alive, he tries to portray and convey that she has to leave one day. Though consciously and unconsciously he knew she isn’t there and won’t come back, but the aroma of love was alive. “Love is immortal”. was a treat for the audience. The struggle within him that he faces, to let her wife go got goose wombs to many in the audience …

The music in between, the lights that were thrown perfectly on his eyes and go on and off with his every dialogue takes the audience into another world. I personally ran through my own reel of life and my eyes had tears. He depicted and showed the audience that soul has no borders, it is in your veins and you remain through it all your life.

The music and the lights by the crew was commendable. It was indeed a treat for the audience. What a fine actor he is. His story ended with a note that –“Don’t worry if people think you’re crazy, you are crazy because you are in love. Love is intoxicating insanity that lets other people dream outside of the lines and become who they’re destined to be.” 

mk2

When I met him in person, I could not speak a word at first, had tears again and skipped a heart beat. Happy to write here that I could relate to his act with my life. The moment during his play he said – “jab asatya, satya ho jata hai, wo maya hai” ...I flowed into the emotion in this line…

When I asked him what was “ruhani” in this play of yours, he answered he could not exactly explain and it is something which is inseparable from your soul… Sir this is for you from – SpiritedBlogger   “I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, I love you as the hidden shadows are to be loved, I love you in secret, between the shadow and the soul.”

Guys this one is a bit different, but if you are in love, spread the word! Love you all! – Catch me of facebook and instagram…

butoh

For Bhopal witnessing a Japanese dance form was new which came true via VIFA
Our friend from Poland  – Kasia Zejmo performed Butoh – A Japanese dance form.  for those who doesn’t know about it read below…

31-img_2530

For all those who doesn’t know about it please read below, I’m sure you would love to watch it again..

Butoh (舞踏 Butō?) is a form of Japanese dance theatre that encompasses a vivid range of activities, techniques and motivation for dance, performance, or movement. Following World War II, Butoh arose in 1959 through collaborations between its two key founders Hijikata Tatsumi and Ohno Kazuo. Butoh, literally is translated into “stomp dance or earth dance”

The art form is known to “resist fixity”and can be a bit difficult to define; notably, founder Hijikata Tatsumi viewed the formalization of butoh with “distress”.Common features of the art form include playful and grotesque imagery, taboo topics, extreme or absurd environments, and it is traditionally performed in white body makeup with slow hyper-controlled motion.

24-img_2519

However, with time Butoh groups are gaining popularity and tremendously being formed around the world, with their numerous aesthetic methods and intentions. This art form is still under transition and it quite intense. Actually, Butoh was born out of chaos and is so performed on the streets, open air ground, with socially challenging pieces.

Butoh – An art at its best .. Enjoy some pictures of the performance I grabbed last night. Thanks #Vifa

PRESERVING TIBETAN CULTURE AT NORBULINGKA INSTITUTE – DHARAMSALA, HIMACHAL PRADESH

005-img_1944-edited
Norbulingka Institute

#SoloTravel has always beguiled me! It was a beautiful morning, unadulterated and not to miss in life! The view from my cottage was stunningly perfect awe-struck my senses. I took my shades, got into my boots and headed down towards Dharamshala from Dharamkot passing by Mcloedganj. The destination was Norbulingka institute.

129-img_2077

Wondering why I’m writing on an institute that has nothing much related to me, indeed the institute needs to be talked about. It lays 6 kms southwest to Dharamshala and as established in 1998 by Kelsang and Kim Yeshi Sidhpur. The name of the institute is derived from the traditional summer residence of the Dalai Lama which is in Lhasa (the capital of Tibet)

019-img_1953

Getting around Norbulingka  – I got enticed the moment I entered the institute by the gorgeous artifacts and colorful walls engraved and painted with traditional Tibetan art (thangka). The moment you step in you are enthralled by magnificent and gurgling streams that smoothly run through flawlessly maintained Japanese-styled gardens. You may get astonished to see or witness different species of Himalayan birds flocking and flittering among the treetops.

015-img_1950-edited

011-img_1947-edited
Stupa – Lord Buddha

There lot to see and roam around in the institute which might take your hours to explore fully. Norbulingka institute’s main aim is to preserve the art and culture of Tibet in India. The institute comprises of a temple, stupa with deities who are worshiped in Tibetan culture, workshops for embroidery, paintings, statue making, wooden art, lush green gardens and hummingbird café for munching and chilling out!

029-img_1964-edited
Temple Entrance

Workshops  – This institute will amaze you with the endurance and perseverance of the culture intact on safe hands. From, generations the artisans and craftsmen are working hard to conserve the traditional art form of paintings (thangka) and appliqué work.

033-img_2111

 

Every year thousands of visitors come and explore the Norbulingka institute and take part in the workshops. The workshops give you vivid knowledge and understanding of intricate art form and culture of Tibet. You can take the workshop as per your choice of art form; there are workshops given on thangka sketching, wood painting, wood carving and appliqué workshops. Do not worry! you are always under the supervision of experts who would make you professional in the respective art form. After the completion of the workshop if you wish you can be offered to volunteer or work as well.

034-img_1967-edited

Shops  – There is a shop inside the institute that sells the hand-made artifacts, paintings, and statues, which are made in-house at the workshop in the institute. The unique collection of appliqué, wood carvings, paintings are sold here. You can take any of the meticulously created thangka painting, statues or wall paintings for your home décor way back home. It is worth!

020-img_1954

Meet the humans

One of the best things you should not miss while visiting the institute is meeting the humans here. OMG! They are the wonderful people one can have all the pleasure knowing them. Every manager, artisan, craftsman, worker, tour guide has their own story to depict with the pain of being a refugee in India. The hard times they faced as refugees in India or caught hold by the military or stuck with kids and no food and no shelter. From my eyes out of many meet the two –

KALSANG KYPA – THE TOUR GUIDE – A great chap with sincerity towards whatever he does. He was a great help to me for all the time I was in the institute, exploring and learning new things about Tibetan culture. His journey was terrible but after being patient and having faith in oneself he found he is safe in Nepal and then he came to India. Wanted to say thank you!

022-img_1956

DASAL – THANGKA PAINTER – He is a terrific thangka painter, since childhood he would draw mountains, valleys and hills. But as he learned more about Tibetan culture he now loves to paint only Buddha and thangkas.

026-img_1961

Getting Here Norbulingka is situated in Sidhpur, a suburb of Dharamsala, about 30 minutes from McLeod Ganj.

By Air – nearest airport is Gaggal, around 20 minutes from Norbulingka. Alternatively, you can take flight from Jammu or Amritsar, both are around 4 hours from Dharamsala.

By train – Pathankot is the nearest station. 2 hours from Dharamsala. Booking in advance is recommended.

By Bus – One of the most cost-effective and reliable way to reach is by bus. Volvo and Himachal Tourism buses ply on a timely basis; you can check the schedule online.

Read this blog ahead to know the most alluring destinations for traveling this summer. For those who love to travel and fill their wanderlust, these 7 destinations will blow your mind. Me as a blogger, personally understand that every individual has their own cliché to go on a vacation. Hmmm… well so how do you start planning? Not much effort is needed to plan your dream destination.

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

I have narrowed down few fantastic destinations for you from my analysis and readers choice. These places are the best to visit to chuck off the heat this summer. All these destinations have one thing in common that is they offer the traveler the best of panoramic views, boast array of one-of-a-kind magnetism, iconic sights and distinct cuisines.

Puerto Rico

The iconic place to see is El Morro. A viable tip to save some money is if you book your travel wheel in advance – say three months, you may get a scoop of affordable rates and stunning escape to the island.

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

Puerto Rico is the magnificent Caribbean island which offers something or the other to all sorts of travelers. Not a single traveler return with blank dairy. From historical sites like El Morro and chocolate box beaches to the underground caverns, everything is perfect. STOP.. do not miss the only tropical forest in the U.S. National Forest System.

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Main attraction is La Quinta Avenida. Budgeted tip is to stay away from timeshare salespeople just to save some pennies.

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

 

The prime reason that wanderers flock to Playa del Carmen is THE BEACH. Popped on the eastern side of the Yucatan Peninsula, the beautiful shorelines and town summon to European and American beach bums with its semi sheltered position and chic resorts.

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

If you get tired of sprawling on the sand, take a leisurely walk along La Quinta Avenida, the town’s main street corresponding to the seashore that offer you fashionable restaurants and a perky nightlife scene.

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

Crete, Greece

Must to visit is the Vai Beach. The money saving tip is that the toiletry staples like toothpaste and shampoo are pricey in Crete, thus, be sure that that you carry your own stuff beforehand.

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

The island of Crete is gorgeous and can offer multiple vacation spot for travelers. Travelers can unwind on the sandy beaches and enjoy the mouth watering seaside tavernas. Other who love adrenalin rush can opt adventurous types like hiking through the soaring mountains or camp site in the forest areas. This is not the end for the history buffs too there are ancient ruins and sites that even urbanites will fall in love.

Budapest, Hungary

Do not miss the Thermal baths. Money-saving tip: For about $30 USD, you can buy a two-day Budapest Card for unlimited public transportation and deals around the city.

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

This Hungarian city is a favorite for those traveling to Eastern Europe. It’s full of history and Renaissance architecture in the Castle Hill neighborhood, and a diverse dining scene fit for wine lovers. But the calling card for a quintessential Budapest experience is a dip in one of the thermal baths, which are heated by natural springs.

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

U.S. Virgin Islands

Not to miss is the Trunk Bay and the money- saving tip is that you shall book the hotels in advance for your travel – i.e in April or May, when the quotes are low.

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

The U.S. Virgin Islands offer magnificent views and hopping at its finest for every wanderer. Travelers adore majorly the three main islands — St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix. No matter which you visit first, you will sure to get pristine white sand beaches, and parks like Virgin Islands and National Park Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge.

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

Bahamas

Not to miss is the Junkanoo and my money saving tip is that – chuck off the sumptuous and chic resorts for food and choose to go for local eateries for an appealing authentic and cheaper experience.

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

For me if it is a beach on the itinerary then it has to be the Bahamas. The best part of this island is that you can spend the whole vacation by just being on the divine beach. Another attraction is the Duty-free shopping at the places like Port Lucaya, and if you plan to visit over the New Year’s then you ill be blessed to experience the gorgeous Junkanoo parades.

https://spiritedbloggerblog.wordpress.com/

Barcelona

Please do not miss the Güell Park. The money saving tip from me is on the lodging and food, try to skip the hotel and get a stay in an apartment on rent.

park-guell1

People who have lust for art and antique stuff will be glad to see what all Barcelona will offer. Gaudi’s renowned architecture places like Güell Park offer the city a beautiful feeling of castle in the sky while lively areas like Las Ramblas gratify visitors towards a dose of local culture. Do not miss the tinge of local flavor at the Boqueria market.
