We wanted to usher in the New Year 2017 with travel. The weather was conducive to explore places in the plains. Madhya Pradesh, the heart of Hindustan, is a neighbouring state. We inaugurated our travel to MP by a trip to Gwalior, a bare 6 hours drive from Delhi. The journey had a lot of surprises in store for us.
Delhi has a host of fun-dos. What makes it more fun is its strategic location. 6 years of regular travel and we still discover new places or old places with a lot of newness. There is no dearth of weekend trip options from here. Our recent trip to Chandigarh gave us pleasures similar to a full blown holiday – in one and half days.
A trek up to the Everest Base camp is a once in a life time experience that many from Delhi NCR are keen on doing. However, this is an ardous exercise that requires professional guidance. Mojhi.com is an adventure portal with more than 15 Everest Base camp trekking packages in Nepal.
North India is blessed with proximity to hills particularly Aravallis and Himalayas. The accessible parts of Himalayas are shared by Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Lansdowne is a quite hill station in Uttarakhand. Only a few hours away from NCR, Lansdowne has amazing surprises to offer.
RailYatri, a train travel service (exist on Web, Apple store & Android ) offers services to train travellers like PNR status, live train status, train time table, train between stations, food booking in train etc. Railyatri.in has everything , a train traveller in India needs with just few clicks avoiding any hassle.
Summer vacation is here and people are busy making plans. Some are fortunate to travel afar. But for others, the going is not so bad – not bad at all! The ranges of Himachal, a great respite from the heat of the plains of NCR, are easily accessible from Delhi by buses, trains or private transport. Some of these places can be covered over a weekend and are still not spoilt by tourist pressure. Khajjiar is one such gem.
Agra has been immortalised by Shahjahan’s Taj Mahal – one of the Wonders of the World. But there is more to Agra than the Taj – the other mausoleums, street food, shopping and a visit to another Mughal site in the vicinity –Fatehpur Sikri. No wonder Agra features in the list for almost all tourists to Delhi. For a tourist, a convenient way to visit Agra from NCR is hire a taxi and one has a fantastic day trip in the offing.
We had come across the Katarmal Sun temple, also known as the Varaditya temple, quite by chance during our trip to Nainital. The way up was tough and we were alerted about that by the locals. We still decided to go ahead with this visit, and we regale on our decisions that we actually did.
