A Fun Travel Experience to Wayanad – II

We skipped our lunch that day since we were more interested in visiting the various spots than eating. We left for Pukkoot Lake at around 4:00 PM. This place is around 15 Km from Kalpetta. Entry fee costed us Rs 10 /-. Boating closes at 5:00 PM. Since we reached at 5:10 Pm we could not go for boating. I wondered if these people were so punctual about the opening time as well. As ways it was no use grumbling so we took a leisure walk around the lake. The lake is surrounded with lush green dense forest. But it

A Fun Travel Experience to Wayanad – I

Just like our other trips, this one too was without any prior planning or booking. The fun of travelling to an unknown place without any booking or any information, is an experience in itself. It all started with us waking up early on a September morning (or rather late at night).  A quick check on the nearest destination, helped us to zero in on Wayanad District, in the north-east of Kerala, India, Wayanad is set lofty on the majestic Western Ghats with altitudes ranging from 700 to 2100 Meters above mean sea level. The natural scenic beauty of Wayanad and

Bindu Jhalong – A lesser-trodden offbeat wonder

Some trips are not easily forgotten. Being a child whose parents loved to travel, I was fortunate enough to travel a lot of lesser known places in and around Kolkata. About 99 Km from Jalpaiguri, Jhalong, is another such lesser-trodden offbeat wonder of Dooars Himalayan foothills, is situated on the bank of Jaldhaka on the way to Bindu in Kalimpong Sub-division. Jaldhaka Hydro electricity project on the Jaldhaka River is another major attraction. It operates water supply to the project and serves as a bridge for crossing over to Bhutan.

Kadri Kambala

Have you ever imagined yourself enjoying the heat, dust and the wetness of the paddy field? Well I could not have imagined myself doing so. But I guess I was in for a surprise. I did not know what to expect when all of a sudden one Friday evening my husband told me that we were to going to Mangalore to watch the Kambala. Kambala, a famous sporting event, is held in the rural costal Karnataka. The event generally happens during the winter seasons at various places. The famous buffalo race takes place on the wet paddy fields. An all-day

Coorg – The Scotland of India – II

After spending hours looking at the waterfall, we continued on our way to Raja’s Seat . The entry fee of this park is Rs 5 per head. This is situated at the heart of the town itself. If legends are to be believed, then this is the spot from where the kings watched the sunsets with their consorts. It offers breathtaking view of towering hills, green valleys, studded with paddy fields. The most fascinating view is the road to Mangalore like a curved ribbon lying in the valley. The view of the sunset from this spot is really a one

Coorg – The Scotland of India – I

The day started on a low note with nothing much to do. But since it was the first day of a brand new year, we definitely were not going to let it be a boring one. Resources were few. We did not have plans for any trip and certainly no reservations were available for any resorts. But still we thought of giving it a last shot. Browsing though the list of various hotels at the various tourist destinations around Bangalore, we discovered that there were still a few hotels that could offer us accommodation. That was all that was required

Cliff over the Hill in Varkala

Varkala is a coastal town of Kerala, situated about 50Km from the capital city of Thiruvananthapuram.There are quite a few transportation options to choose from. You can take a bus, auto or train. We had opted to go by train. There are quite a few trains that leave from the Central station in Thiruvananthapuram. We boarded the Chennai Express from there. It takes about 40 minutes to reach Varkala. On reaching the Varkala station we took an auto to reach our resort. A ride to the north cliff would cost you anywhere near Rs80-90. We had made our reservations at the Woodhouse

Aquaria Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre – Quite Disappointing

With nothing much to do for the day and after hearing a lot about the KLCC Aquaria, I though of venturing out to have a look at this place.  Situated inside the KLCC underpass tunnel connecting the Suria KLCC to the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, this place is not hard to find. Aquaria KLCC Entrance Fees With MyKad / MyKid Non MyKad / MyKid ADULT RM38 RM50 CHILD (3-12 years old) RM28 RM40 SENIOR CITIZEN (60 years and above) RM28 RM30 A bit steep considering the time spent inside. It is actually quite small and we left within 15 minutes. Good experience for
