Embracing the Nature near Barkota Hills Dalhousie

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. The nature here is pure and looks like one of the most panoramic places where you can have some really amazing shots for your blog or for framing on your bedroom wall. I love travelling to such places where there is nature and peace and you don’t have to bother about anything. Barkota Hills is one such place where I could sit and just wonder how nature can be so peaceful and serene here.

 Moments drenched in the tranquility of Panchpula Waterfall

Dalhousie has several tourist destinations in its surrounding locations. If you don’t have your own vehicle and if you are here for a short time (for two days), so it is better that you hire a cab service. The cab service will make you visit all the major tourist destinations of Dalhousie in a minimum of 8 hours. You will be charged extra if you extend the service hours. Since I was traveling in Dalhousie for two days only, hence I too I rented a cab and I visited all the major tourist attractions of Dalhousie. The first destination was this famous Panchpula Waterfall. I had no idea about the places and things to do in Dalhousie. Hence I took help from Google and got to know about some famous places. Hence, on the second day of my Dalhousie Journey, I left the hotel early and took a b...

Village Malura gave me lasting memories – Smile of Kritika and Angel

Village Malura – a small village located at a drive of around 30 minutes away from Dalhousie, gave me memories which will always be painted in my mind. Whenever I travel to any place, I often tend to look for stories which I can always remember and which can bring smile on my face. I don’t usually look for any big purpose but yeah, there is always a thing that I really want to spend some time with the local people there. I remember my Rajasthan trip where I got to spend some time with the locals of the village where I went. It was such an incredible experience and the memories are really wonderful. The hospitality, the enthusiasm they had, really touched me. That is my purpose! That’s what inspires me to travel. Travelling to such places makes me happy and fills me with positivity. ...
