After our wonderful journey and sigh-seeing around in Leh, we started the next day to Hunder in Nubra Valley.
Before I start with the journey, need to share a short experience that we encounteredclose to Nimoo Village where our car had a tire burst and we had to have a spare tyre fitted in. We tried exploring all of Ladakh the next morning but had no luck until around 11ish to get the tyre fixed before we head out on our further journey.
I could not hold myself from writing about the “Hall of Fame” which is very special and wanted to take this opportunity to share with you to plan your visit to this place during your Leh Trip.
“Hall of Fame” is not just a memorial or a place of attraction, it is a place which talks about the forces behind us having a peaceful time, about the conditions they work in, about the sacrifices these brave hearts make not caring about anything other than their “Motherland”.
Leh holds a special place for anyone who is going on a Ladakh Road-trip. Leh is the headquaters of the Leh District and was also the capital of Ladakh kingdom. Leh is at a altitude of 11,562ft (ASL).
Most of us do the mistake of combining and calling it Leh Ladakh which is not the case and it is just Leh.
Roadtrippin in India is fast catching up with more and more enthusiastic travelers opting to travel by road while having the time to play with the itinerary and be flexible.
This blog post is to help such travelers who predominantly use a four wheeler (bikers don’t need to pay Toll in India).
This weekend saw us head-over to Gandikota popularly known as “Grand Canyon of India” situated in Andhra Pradesh.
The moment an Indian hears about Kargil, he is reminded of the Kargil conflict dating back to 1999 between India and Pakistan and “Operation Vijay” which was implemented by India to regain control of various posts captured by Pakistan and the brave soldiers who lost their lives serving their motherland.
This was in July that we started planning a roadtrip to Ladakh region in August and I was also scheduled to go on a work trip to Ireland. Not wanting to miss visiting Jammu and Kashmir in August to celebrate India’s Independence Day in Kargil (Drass War Memorial), started planning with ScoutMyTrip and RoadTrippersClub who were supporting me on the roadtrip to Ladakh region.
Road-tripping in Ireland is going to be fun as well as a bit of costly affair if not carefully planned as you need to focus on the huge insurance costs that would come with a car rental. I recently had been on a journey myself and I booked an #AvisIreland vehicle.
Anantagiri Hills is one of the most preferred weekend Getaway.
Due to its proximity to Hyderabad, this is the third time we ended up visiting this beautiful location.
The idea of Hampta Pass Trek happened with the idea of Everest Base Camp Trek in September 2018 (which is now deferred to March 2019). I wanted to check for the endurance and also the fitness that I was able to garner a similar (Himalayan Trek) before going on the most ambitious EBC Trek.
Basel also known as Basle holds a very important place in my heart as I have been here for more than three times since 2012.
Basel is a city of culture, art and more importantly Museums depicting its rich culture as it also boasts is the third most populous city in Switzerland.
Planning the Spiti Circuit: This was August 2017 and i was searching my way round on what should I do and i ended up deciding out of blue to do a roadtrip to Ladakh. All was set and I was all set to book tickets and that was when the reality came to the front…. Self-Drive cars are not permitted there was the constant feedback i received from all corners…. The idea churning factory started, me feeling dejected, what should I do now, lets try posting on FB, maybe someone may say, Yes buddy, you can take a self-drive car there.. but was not the case and that was when a good friend from work recommended Spiti..
Vaud Region has Lake Genève on the Switzerland side and Lac Léman on the French side is overlooked by the Swiss Alps which gives you great experiences and picturesque postcards.
14th March 2018 saw me plan a trip to Mount Titlis and i was all set to ensure I reached the Basel SBB railway station by 0800 Hrs to catch the InterRegio to Luzern from where I would need to connect another train to Engelberg. The journey was around 01:45 hours from Basel.
Jungfrau region needs no mention should you be a Indian movie lover which would have a romantic number from one of these regions. Having said, that, this place also boasts to be the top of Europe which makes it a must visit place for someone on a trip to Switzerland.
Mount Rigi is a fascinating part of Alps in Switzerland and offers a whole massif surrounded by water on all three sides from Lake Lucerne, Lake Zug and Lake Lauerz. Rigi region is also connected by the oldest cog railways of Europe which makes the journey all the more fascinating.
