We have been to Ladakh twice – once to see what Ladakh actually is. Why did travellers so like the place? That was way back in 2013. We went, saw and were stunned. Ladakh conquered us! The next time it was in January 2014 to do the Chadar Frozen River Trek. Since then we had […]

Reunions are always special. Especially when we reunite with our childhood buddies at some beautiful destination. Deul Eco Park is situated beside the beautiful location of Ajay River. Deul is away from the city with the thick Garh forest of Durgapur at the backdrop and the Ajay River flowing beside. And the most important of […]

I was a bit disappointed when the cherry blossoms turned out to be no show at Shillong during the Cherry Blossoms Festival. But amidst all these, another festival caught my eyes. Rather, its name caught my fancy. It was the 100 Drums Wangala Festival celebrated in the Garo Hills. There was a two-line description saying […]

I actually do not need a reason to visit Shillong. The lovely hill city is etched in my heart since I read “Sesher Kabita” (The Last Poem) by Rabindranath Tagore. There is something so affable about the city that makes it a wonderful destination. And when I heard about the Cherry Blossom Festival at Shillong, […]

Pushkar Fair – An extravaganza http://taleof2backpackers.com/pushkar-fair-rajasthan/ http://taleof2backpackers.com/pushkar-fair-rajasthan/#comments Sat, 18 Nov 2017 19:59:32 +0000 http://taleof2backpackers.com/?p=6584

A kaleidoscope of colours and a chaotic cacophony greeted me when I visited the Pushkar Fair this year. I have heard and read so much about this fair that in my mind I had already visited the place, traversed its alleys, took a dip in the holy lake while marvelling at the esoteric Brahma Temple […]
