Crossing The Indo-Nepal Border By Horse

The bus was marketed to us as having a heater, though this was rendered obsolete when a stone came through a window mid journey. No-one knew who threw it, and we spent the rest of the drive freezing. The bus soon filled with returning Nepali immigrants, who huddled against each other for warmth.

Lusting To Wander: Where Will You Go Next?

I don’t want my wanderlust to end. All I want is to travel, to have more lust to wander. Travelling has taught one thing to me, that, you are a completely different person when you return home.

Four Reasons: Why It Is Amazing To Visit Hill Stations During Winters

If winter doesn’t freak you out then there is no better place than hill stations to experience the chills of winter breeze. Here are four reasons why you must visit a hill station in winters:

Narkanda: Of Mountains, Hills And More

Located at an altitude of around 3300 metres, the Hatu peak is the highest point of Narkanda and has a temple of Hatu Mata, which is an ancient holy temple currently under renovation. At the time when I had been to Narkanda, that is the first week of December, amidst the chills of a yet-to-arrive winter, the temple that was under renovation presented an intriguing architectural make-up with its dragon-like creatures, owls and the flower-like pattern- all carved out in the wooden temple. However, the idol of Hatu Mata could not be seen as entry was restricted and we were allowed to venture only up to the first flight of stairs.

Five Reasons Why Lucknow Is A Must-Visit

Lucknow is famous for both its chicken and chikken (fabric). Located in Aminabad, Gomti Nagar and Chowk, the famous chicken of Tunde Kababi is something that no non-vegetarian would afford to miss to add to his gustatory pleasures if he visits the city.
Not just non-vegetarians, the city serves herbivores too.

Why You Should Consider Travelling Solo The Next Time

There is something salutary about travelling solo. The freedom gained enables you to immerse yourself in different cultures in a way like no other. I took my first trip alone to New Zealand when I was a 20-year-old. I got to admit that was, hands down, the best experience ever. Yes! The picturesque camping spots and adrenaline pumping activities (bungee jumping, river rafting) added immensely to the experience.

Madame Tussaud’s: A Journey Through Time

Tourists from all over the world travel to London to visit Madame Tussauds House of Wax Museum. However not many are aware of this womans claim to fame. With its beginnings set in the 1700, Madame Tussauds legend is set to carry on for centuries more. A sneak-peak into the evolution of a museum that has captivated the imagination of the intellectuals is interesting and yet hard to believe.

Goa: A Threat To Indian Culture?

Remarks and speeches by politicians about putting a ban on things like pubs, bars, clothes, etc. are not something new. Many a times it has provoked criticism. To counter such criticism they would even gracefully quote from the religious manuscripts to support their ideologies. We are not very sure as to how sentimental they are but some do make speeches regarding these issues to appeal to the voters.

Jaisamand Island Resort: A Charming Escapade

It was built by the late Maharana Jaisingh, who on its inauguration on June 2, 1691 walked around it distributing gold equal to his own weight in charity. He built six Chhatris (Cenotaphs) with finely embroidered elephants in front, the temple of Lord Shiva in the centre on the embankment. Close to Jaisamand is the game sanctuary, which is spread over an area of about 45 kilometres. The sanctuary shelters wild animals like panthers, wild bear, spotted deer, sambars etc.
