Do you know Khajjiar is known as Mini Switzerland of India?

Ever since I had heard about the natural beauty of Khajjiar, I have had a strong urge to visit there. The snow peaked mountains, huge deodar trees, green lush environment and lake, seems that nature has put all the artistic imaginations in one place and has crafted this beautiful landscape. Located at around 24KM away from Dalhousie which is also the main city here, Khajjiar is also known as Mini Switzerland of India. I have had seen enough of this place’s panoramic views in videos on YouTube, and finally my time came of visiting this place. The valleys around are full of serenity.

Celebrating World Music Day with Immense Artists at Social, Vasant Kunj

I often get to meet really amazing people while I am travelling. As I step forward in the journey of life, I come across so many beautiful places. That’s a truly incredible thing about travelling. And in this never ending journey of life, music & poetry has been an integral part. I have my own playlist of music to listen during journey. And I often write poetry when I am sitting in some isolated area in some hilly area or in the jungle. I haven’t done any trip this month but I got to meet a group of people who celebrated the vibe of music and poetry on this World Music Day. I was invited to attend this event by Immense Artists, a vibrant group for artists from different art background.

In the ambiance of Khajjiar – En route to the Mini Switzerland of India

The day had spread enough of its glory and it was all set to kiss the night. I tell you the night in hilly areas is one of the best things you will ever experience in your life. Drenched in the tranquility of nature, the night wears the vial full of glittering stars. However, the day was yet to invite the night and I had enough time in my hands. I was at Kalatop having Maggi and embracing the mesmerizing views of the nature. Then I realized that the cab I had booked was for limited hours. Hence, leaving the panoramic beauty of Kalatop behind, I got into the car and we drove off to Khajjiar. I know people especially college friends have fantasy of visiting Goa. I never had such imagination. For me, it was Kasol first since my college days. I wanted to go Kasol. And no doubt, I did. I wen...

The Third Destination of My Journey – Kalatop Dalhousie

Dalhousie has so many places which are really hard to cover in a day. If you are travelling to Dalhousie, make sure that you are coming here at least for three days, so that you can visit major destinations in and around Dalhousie properly.

After visiting Dainkund Peak, we headed to Kalatop Dalhousie. Cherishing moments at Kalatop Dalhousie When I reached Kalatop, I was really feeling hungry. I roamed around for a while and searched ...

Leh-Ladakh: The Desert of the Himalayas

‘Your first two days will go in acclimatisation.’ was the warning given to me by my friend who had recently returned from Leh. ‘You will feel nauseous and possibly dizzy so definitely carry Disprin and Crocin. You smoke? Yeah, it may be three days then.’ This was not what my excited ears wanted to hear after having seen his picturesque photo album of selfies with snow covered mountains, pristine lakes and golden monasteries. ‘The landing strip at the airport is absolutely horrible so be ready for the train wreck of landings!’ Although his commencement of the journey began with more criticism than praise, when I asked him if it was all worth it in the end, he smiled and said that it was ‘life altering.’ Image: Landing at Leh When the hyperbolic advertisements of travel agencies scream...

Himachal Pradesh is full of scenic beauties and places which offer breath – taking views of nature. While I was in Dalhousie for a two days trip, I came across two of such magnificent places from where I embraced nature with arms wide open. One of such places is Barkota Hills Dalhousie.
