Tawang travel guide

Tawang is an unexplored paradise. Located in the western part of Arunachal Pradesh at a height of about 3500 m above the sea level, the place is both historically and naturally endowed.

But, it is one of the most beautiful places of the north-eastern Himalayas.  Surrounded by the Tibet in the northern part, Bhutan in the Southwest and the Sela ranges in the east, the place can boast of the natural beauty of glacial lakes as well as the snow covered peaks.

A morning at Chitkul

Chitkul – the name itself sounds like the twitter of birds, and the curiosity is piqued when you heard that Chitkul is the last inhabited village of India! Also, this gem of a village lies in the mystically beautiful Kinnaur-Kailash region of Himachal Pradesh. These three reasons are enough to make us want to visit Chitkul all the more. And, Chitkul did not disappoint us. From the journey to the village and the time spent there, each moment was as beautiful as it had promised to be. Chitkul is only 24 km from Sangla, one of the prominent towns...

Rupin Pass – an epiphanous journey

There is something inexplicably romantic about trekking the mountains of the Uttarakhand Himalayas – Rupin Pass is no exception. Trails through alpine forests, walking through the meadows with the snow clad peaks playing hide and seek with us, and crossing a pass – all are so impressive and fascinating. After completing the Roopkund Trek, Rupin Pass was on our bucket list and finally this May, our wish to do the trek was fulfilled. Incidentally, this Rupin Pass trek would be our first trek where we would be crossing over a pass, so the enthusiasm was also a bit higher...

64 Yogini Temple, Jabalpur

A visit to the Chausath Yogini or 64 Yogini Temple  near Bhedaghat at Jabalpur was completely by chance. We had a day to spare at Jabalpur after our trip to Panchmarhi. Naturally we headed towards Bhedaghat and the Marble Rocks. But unfortunately for us, boating at the Marble rocks had not yet started and we had to contain ourselves with the view of the Dhuandhar waterfalls. The 64 Yogini temple is located very near to the Dhuandhar Falls. Like most temples, this one also had a flight of stairs leading to the temple sanctuary. Our auto driver told us...

Barsey – a walk among the rhododendron trail

A short trek amidst the canopy of greenery, a riot of colours and grandiose views of the Kanchenjunga range – the Barsey or Varsey trek has it all. So when we had an extended weekend, we decided that the best way to spend it is by taking a short trip to Barsey Rhododendron Sanctuary. Not only would it give us some respite from the scorching heat, but also quench our thirst for the mountains for a while! With our backpacks, we boarded Padatik Express to New Jalpaiguri. After reaching NJP, we took a shared jeep to Jorethang and from...

Rabdentse – Ruins of an ancient capital of Sikkim

The ruins of Rabdentse Palace lies just a few kilometers from the Pemyangste Monastery on the way to Pelling. Sikkim is a mystical land with all the ancient monasteries and intriguing places to visit. Rabdentse is one such place. You find the signboard of this ancient site out of nowhere on the highway to Pelling with an equally curious line – “Follow the Path and you will reach the Palace” written on a simple entry gate. Being totally addicted to ancient monuments, we decided to follow wherever the path led to. As we entered, there was a well-marked path...
