Hartola travel guide - Kumaon Himalaya

Travel

Hartola, in the fruit belt of Kumaon (in the state of Uttarakhand), is reachable via Kathgodam and Lalkuan railway stations. From here, a winding road up the green hills in an almost zero-traffic zone is well, truly Himalaya! Beside the pristine Himalayan setting, the glaciers and peaks, it is the orchards in particular with the heady fragrance of ripe fruit that adds to the meditative ambience.

Govind Ghat in August

Travel

Garhwal Himalayas experience heavy rainfall in July-August. But to our delight it has been a clear sunny day, and we came across zero landslides on our way up to Govind Ghat. With just a stop at Nandprayag for a dip in the river, we are in at Govindghat in a single day.

Forts of Vindhyachal

Travel

Vindhyachal has well preserved caves from the neolithic age, as well as the Salkhan Fossil Park. But when forests gave way to kingdoms, Vindhyachal saw its spate of forts, which are inextricably attached to tales of Chandrakanta and the royals.

By the sea at Negombo, Sri Lanka

Travel

Negombo, a beach haven in Sri Lanka is a two hour drive from Columbo. Morning and evening walks, splashing around, playing beach-volleyball and lolling under coconut palms with chilled fruit-cocktails was truly divine. Salty spray settled on my curly hair and I tasted salt on my lips, the sea was really close up.

Travel

Iceland for Indians - a travelogue

Travel

It was interesting to find out that the hot springs at Geysir in Iceland gave birth to the name geyser. Iceland was full of surprises. One has to see the smoke rising from hot springs and volcanic sites in the backdrop of bluish-white ice and snow to marvel at the creator’s sense of geography. The country runs entirely on geo-thermal and hydropower.
