Enchanting Sikkim

By

Sikkim is a state in East India in the Himalayan foot hills. We started our journey from Delhi, where we took Deccan Air flight to Bagdogra, which is the nearest airport to Gangtok and is around 4 hours drive. At the airport, we took a local cab service (that we had booked in advance), the driver was waiting for us at the airport and thus began our tour of the exasperating Himalayan abode.

The Barren Tribal Circuit

The Barren Tribal Circuit

By

Tribal circuit is one of my best trip I had so far, more than 1000 KM X Chandigarh in 3 nights and 4 days, exploring through the whole of Himachal, passing through two major high altitude passes, exploring the changing vegetation and roving to places where you bound to feel “This is heaven and I am God”. You probably get hypnotized by the nature and feel need of nothing and feel a peace which only god can feel. All worries are left behind, in fact at that height when you look below from the edge of the cliff you will feel like there are my big worries looking so small from here!

Sirsi and Sahasralinga , शिरसी और सहस्रलिंग

By

अब माता के दर्शन के बाद मैं चला एक जगह जिसे कहते है सहस्रलिंग कहते है। सहस्रलिंग शिरसी से करीब 12 किमी दूर शिरसी – येल्लापुर हाइवे से कुछ अंदर है, यहाँ आप बस नहीं तो शेयर ऑटो करके आ सकते है। सहस्रलिंग पत्थरों से बनाए गए 1008 शिवलिंग है जो शाल्मला नदी पर स्थित है। इसके इतिहास के बारे में मैंने बहुत जाने कि कोशिश कि लेकिन मुझे ज्यादा पता नहीं चल पाया, लेकिन एक बात यहाँ आकर आपका मन जरूर शिवमय हो जाएगा इस बात कि गारंटी देता हूँ। बहती हुई शाल्मला नदी स्वयं इन शिवलिंगों का अभिषेक करती है 24 घंटे। घने जंगल, पवित्र वातावरण, शाल्माला नदी कि खडखडाहट के बीच स्थित यहाँ बड़ा भव्य आभास होता है। यहाँ हर शिवरात्रि पर बहुत भीड़ रहती है। पिकनिक के हिसाब से भी यह बहुत बढ़िया स्थल बनता है नहाने और मौज मस्ती के लिए। शहर से दूर आप काफी आनंद और अध्यात्मिक शान्ति का आभास कर सकते होता है । अब आप इस स्थल का दर्शन कर ले । ओम नमः शिवाय ।

The resort was in middle of the Jungle area and surrounded by hills from 2 sides. Luckily our rooms are balcony one’s and it opens to the hills. What else anyone want a good resort with a hill facing balcony. We checked in to resort a little early and thanks to the manager who allowed us to check in before half an hour from scheduled time. We all were very tired after 11 hours long journey.

Cool Coorg

The return journeys, as always, make the heart heavy. This time my heart did put on a lot of weight. We decided to leave for Bangalore via a detour of ‘Talacauvery’. So we started very early on the next morning. Talacauvery, the source of the river Cauvery in the south was draped in a mystical legend.

The land of monasteries and mysteries of God……

By

I entered the ‘Spiti Valley – The Middle Land’ realizing that i have lost all the contact with the world outside. If everything goes according to the plan, it would be after 3 days i.e. on 7th Oct evening when I’ll get the network back upon reaching Manali. But for now let me enjoy the beauty of the Spiti Valley for the final 27 kms left to cover from Sumdo to Tabo. As the valley now divided into two parts ‘Light & Shade’ looked magnificent in the setting sun….

Manikaran Sahib, Kullu – A short visit

By

As heat in Delhi became unbearable, as we gave up on staying alive in the huge bar-be-que that seemed to follow us wherever one would go, and finally as our frustration psyched us out since we could not find an appropriate, worthy, exciting place for our holiday – along came Kasol. To make the deal more lucrative, it came across that Gurudwara Manikaran Saheb was close-by, hence a visit was warranted.
