Since the last one year, I had toyed with the idea of touring Sri Lanka, having heard about its beauty. I talked to four persons who had visited Sri Lanka: two of them told me that everything is cheap and affordable, but the other two told me to be wary as things are costly there. I did not know whom to believe then. The first person had taken advantage of the Air Lanka's package tour, where the airlines, takes care of their guests’ comforts, i.e. accommodation in a five star hotel, transportation, sightseeing, food, etc. The second one is an airline employee

Highway and take a detour to the little village of Adalaj. The architectural marvel resembles a subterranean temple dedicated to the beauty and mystery of natural water. Water-the elixir of life-has sustained mankind from time immemorial. Access to water has determined the development of various civilizations. Myths and legends flowed from the fertile imagination of a people who deified water as the mother goddess-Ganga

A visit to the Kashmir valley is incomplete without a stay in a House Boat and shopping for dry fruits, fresh Apples and Kashmiri Handicrafts. During our Eight day stay in the Valley, we spent four nights and Five days in a super deluxe house boat “Kashmir Treat” owned by Ghulam Qadir Goosani and managed by him and his son Mustafa.

Kashmir’s grandeur is enhanced by the pristine beauty of the hills, glaciers and meadows. One could find umpteen choices according to one’s fancy following the budget but the main places highlighted are always marked in travel guides and blogs. As per our tour itinerary, we decided to visit Sonamarg at a distance of 84Kms, connected by well motorable Srinagar Leh Highway NH 1D that passes parallel to Sindh River. Sonamarg is the Northern Gateway for Amarnath Yatra via Baltal before Kargil.

Water has always fascinated mankind. Most of the civilizations have been built on the river banks since water which is one of the most essential ingredients for human life, is available in plenty. No wonder that the water falling off from a height has been even more fascinating for us and such waterfalls have mesmerized the visitors due to their sheer beauty, elegance and feel of power. Our own Jog falls and Shinvanasamudra falls are a huge

The reminiscence of my visit to Kashmir Valley in the late Eighties haunted me always and called me in my dreams to revisit and explore the valley better. My wife Meena who was deprived of the chance to visit Kashmir later, always used to tell me that life is peaceful there and we must plan a holiday sometime. This has been her regular mantra since the late Nineties when tourists started going there including foreigners.

Summer was round the corner and we were unable make up our mind to visit anywhere. Finally with very little time to plan we decided to travel to a country that would give us a visa on arrival (too little time to apply for one), ideally a 4-5 hour flight radius (as it was to be a short break of 4-5 days), nature abound (a contrast to Gulf environment), value for money (thanks to recession) and last but not the least in-depth (culturally and historically). Therefore with so many parameters naturally it had to be Nepal

We were looking for a hiatus in the dreary intercourse of daily life. The sultry days of May provided no respite from the heat. Like the sun-baked earth, we yearned for cool showers. Kashmir beckoned us with its infinite charms. With the passing of sheshur, the season of sonth had awakened the valley from its hibernation. The sweet-scented yamberzal or the narcissus had already heralded the arrival of spring. The white and pink

In my life in North America, I have found that I have often stumbled upon some of the finest displays of Mother Nature. Quite a few of them which I have visited with eager expectations have proved to be unfit of the hype because of the typical 'tourist' attractions that were hardly out of the ordinary. There have also been quite a few where the drive was far more attractive than the destination!
