Train journey to Haridwar
Haridwar to Rishikesh and
Rishikesh to Joshimath.
After that grueling, bone breaking bus journey sleep would not come early and when it came, it was difficult to get up early in the morning.
We were told at Joshimath that share-taxis start as early as 6 AM for Govindghat and Badrinath and they are frequent.
We got up as planned, packed and had tea at the only roadside tea cart. It helped us to recover from …
Contd from Part I here… ..
This was the day for our Unconference. It started at 10 AM and went till evening. The discussions and knowledge sharing was quite satisfying for all of us. Each one of us bringing a fresh dish on his/her platter. I won’t go into the details in this post as to who presented what, some other participants have written about it. I’ll share all the links at the end and write about it separately. Again we could not go anywhere so settled down for Antakshari …
When I wrote on my Facebook timeline that I have fallen in love with Uttarakhand, I wasn’t wrong! Three trips in last one year have proven that. Last month I returned from my 3 week trekking trip to Valley of flowers, Hemkunt Sahib, Badrinath et al & now again!
“Are there not many places to visit in India”, I was asked when I told I am going there again.

This year I have been travelling every single month, be it abroad or within India. Last month this day I flew off to Spain on the invitation of Tourism board of Spain and Turkish Airlines. And exactly a month later I am flying again, leave alone the road trips and train journeys that make their way in between.

Off late, I have fallen in love with this state.
Have you ever bathed in front of 100s of people with full clothes on? No, I am not talking about taking a dip in any pilgrimage site or any sacred river, but in a dangerous rock falling zone where every single person present there prayed for safe journey!
It happened to us during our recent Trip to Uttarakhand. We had completed our Treks to Valley of Flowers and Hemkunt and now wanted to visit Badrinath.
Do you see one wheel of the bus hanging? It was that dangerous to drive.
This was a …
Cameron Highlands, Malaysia »
If I was to choose a hill station where I would like to spend my lifetime, Cameron Highlands in Malaysia is one of the top five in my list. I have been to Cameron Highlands twice and both the times I was so bitten by its beauty that I did not want to leave the place !
One of Malaysia’s most extensive hill stations, the Cameron Highlands is perched on a corner of the Titiwangsa Range in Pahang. It covers an area of 712 square kilometres.
As an Indian, the first impression …
You must be wondering what I am upto these days!
Well, I am back from my trekking trip to the valley of flowers, Hemkunt Sahib and more. And I tell you, trekking nearly 60 kilometers in all, half of which was uphill is no joke for a city dweller like me !
I also went to Badrinath and walked up to the last tea shop in last village on Indian side before descending to Rishikesh, Dehradun et al.
The time was not perfect for the entire trip as it was raining heavily and …
