10 Best things to do in Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka is one country that is on every traveler’s bucket list. It is a country that is just so green that it might give The Hulk a complex. The country is relatively small but offers a myriad range of fun, adventure, and romance. This beautiful country is home to some exotic beaches, hills, mountains, resorts, culture, people, nightlife, monuments, wildlife, cuisine and what not. Although there are hundreds of things to do in Sri Lanka, here’s my top 10 things to do in Sri Lanka for the best experience:

1. Sleep in a tree house in the middle of the forest.

Sri Lanka is home to some really wild animals since most of the country’s land is covered with rainforest. So in order to protect themselves from these animals, several villagers built tree houses and slept in them. Now, with the increase in tourism, these treehouses have been converted into resorts and hotels while still maintaining the original charm.

2. Sip a cup of tea and explore the hill country

Drinking tea is an important part of Sri Lanka’s culture and the country is a great producer of tea in the world. As per some prominent food bloggers, Sri Lanka also serves the best tea in the world. The hill country has seriously stunning views surrounded by tea plantations. The vegetation is lush green and the rolling hills make for a beautiful site.

Also, don’t miss Ella and Nuwara Eliya to see the tea plantations of Sri Lanka.

3. Walk through beautifully manicured gardens of Sri Lanka

Situated in Kandy, the Peradeniya Botanical garden was built in 1371. Today, It is home to the largest of Sri Lanka’s botanical gardens having over 4000 species of plants. In addition to the plethora of diverse flowering plants, there is also an extensive collection of medicinal plants that you can see while strolling around.

.

4. Get to know the Locals

Nothing feels more special than being invited to someone’s house for dinner. Sri Lankans are the friendliest bunch and will give you good insights into the country’s culture and local attractions fo you to explore.

5. Walk along the beaches of Sri Lanka.

Hikkaduwa, Unawatuna, and Kosgoda are some amazing beaches, but you can still find hidden beaches all along Sri Lanka’s coast.

6. Experience a holy Buddhist site

The temple of the sacred tooth relic is the most visited site in Sri Lanka. Constructed in the 16th century AD, it is situated adjacent to the Royal Palace complex of the former kingdom of Kandy. The place is known to preserve the sacred tooth relic of Lord Buddha which serves as a significant symbol of Sinhalese pride and identity. A visit to the temple is a must if you’re visiting Sri Lanka.

7. Hike Pidurangala

Pidurangulu is a great sunset point hike that takes you up to the mountain adjacent to Sigiriya.  Views from the top of a giant rock there will definitely leave you mesmerized.

8. Get really up close with the whales of Sri Lanka

Spend a beautiful morning adoring the incredible blue whales in Mirrisa. Mirissa is a small fishing port on Sri Lanka’s south coast famous for surfing and whale watching. The place is considered to be one of the best locations for watching the might blue whales. The trick is to be patient and not wait for it anxiously. Until then you can admire the aquatic surroundings.

9. Visit a turtle hatchery

Turtles are under great threat due to fishing, hunting, pollution and habitat loss. So the turtle hatcheries are doing their best to preserve them. One of the best turtle hatcheries in Sri Lanka is the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery.

10. Enjoy Sri Lankan food

Whether you’re a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian or a seafood lover, you are for sure going to fall in love with Sri Lankan food. But be careful, it is saucy and spicy. Some of the best items you will find there are egg samosa, Kothu, rice and curry meals. Truly one of the best things to do in Sri Lanka.

Even though Sri Lanka is a small country, it has a lot of things to offer that you can do and keep yourself busy.

6 Amazing things to do in Bhutan

Posted By : admin/ 915 0

6 awesome things to do in Bhutan:

The land of the Thunder Dragon, Bhutan is a country whose charm lies in its authenticity, hospitality and its naturally integrated history, culture and tradition apart from being home to some amazing monasteries, high mountain passes, and thrilling adventure sports. It’s an ideal quick getaway if you have around a week off and you wish to go on a trip. So without further delay, here’s my 10 off the grid things to do in Bhutan:

1. Hike to Tiger’s Nest Monastery

Tiger’s Nest Monastery (Taktshang Goemba) is the most iconic monastery in Bhutan and its image is often the representative of the country in various advertisements. They say that Guru Rinpoche flew to the monastery on the back of a tiger and hence the name. While climbing up to the monastery, you will be taken through a forest followed by a steep climb to the cafe for you to have tea just before the final ascent. The views from the top are spectacular and will be worth all your efforts and time. The climb will take around 4 hours, although there is an option to take a horse while going up. The monastery sits in a tricky way balanced on a narrow rock face, which makes it unique among all the monasteries in Bhutan.

2. Spend a day or two with a Bhutanese Farmer.

Take some time to join the everyday rituals of locals there and immerse yourself into traditional farming scene. Join the locals throughout the year as they harvest their beautiful crops using unique farming methods. Bhutanese farmers dressed in traditional colorful attires work in the fields day and night farming. Rice and chilies are planted in spring and harvested the following autumn. At the end of the day don’t forget to share an authentic Bhutanese dinner with local farmers and their families which is one of a kind experience in itself. Truly one of the best things to do in Bhutan.

Farmers harvest turnips in Dhazheyjhab village, Phobjikha valley, Bhutan. Turnips are stored over the winter and used by farmers as winter feed for their cattle.

3. Try your hand at archery

Archery is Bhutan’s national sport. Be it a village, town or any settlement, you will find a dedicated space to archery. Both traditional wooden bows and the new lightweight carbon fiber or aluminum bows are used in Bhutan. The love for the sport in this country is unparalleled and you can expect Bhutan finding success in the coming Olympics.

4. Walk within the walls of an ancient fortress.

The palace of bliss or “Punakha Dzong” is the second largest as well as the second largest Dzong in the kingdom. Widely regarded as the most artistic and the most aesthetically pleasing dzong in the country, the 400-year-old fortress boasts a six-story central tower, white-washed walls, timber window panes and gorgeous carved wood-line accents. The fortress is also celebrated as the fortress where every Bhutanese king has been crowned. Also, it is the winter residence of the official winter body of the kingdom.

5. Be a part of the celebration of a Bhutanese festival

The festivals of Bhutan are famous around the world for their riotous colors, joyful atmosphere, and ancient religious tradition. Festivals take place throughout the year but the biggest and the most colorful takes place in the Spring and autumn. If you are able to combine your trip with one of these festivals of the country, it would really add a bit of spice to your tour.

6. Conquer Bhutan’s highest mountain pass

The Chele La pass is the highest road pass in the mountainous country of Bhutan. At this high altitude, the temperature drops and the air becomes a lot clearer as you get closer to the pass. In addition to the spectacular views from the top, the colorful flags that you will see on the way add to the festive atmosphere. This surely has to be one of the most thrilling things to do in Bhutan.

The beautiful country has a lot to offer if you are visiting for the first time. Go and experience it yourself.

5 Road trips in India you just can’t afford to miss

5 road trips in India you can’t afford to miss:

The world is a book, and those who do not travel have just read a page. There’s nothing more exciting and badass than hitting the road with a bunch of friends and music on and exploring and discovering the life across different places. Be it east, west, south or north, a country like India, so diverse and vast, offers an abundance of roads and destinations that are just perfect for road trips. Here we bring you the best 5 road trips in India that you must definitely take at least once in your lifetime:

1. Delhi to Ladakh

Instead of landing straight in Leh via a flight from Delhi to Srinagar, I’d recommend go from Delhi or Srinagar to Leh/Ladakh by road. You will find yourself driving your way through the mesmerizing landscapes and enchanting mountains of the mighty Himalayas at height of more than 18k feet! The journey tests your abilities and fitness but will make up for it with unbelievable sights every kilometer that only a few have got a chance to see and experience. One more advantage: Since you’re on a road trip , you can stay as long as you wish and leave whenever you want.

2. Guwahati to Tawang

The journey from Guwahati to Tawang by road will make you realize that journey is more important than the destination itself. Before opting for this journey, one must know a few things. The ILP (Inner line permit) has to be obtained by everyone be it Indians or Foreigners who enter Arunachal Pradesh. Also, this will be a long travel of around 510 kms which cannot be covered in one go. So you will have to make a night or two halts before reaching the place. However, the beautiful scenery on the way and the unexplored tourist places in Tawang will make you forget the pain.

3. Spiti Valley

If given an option, Personally I’d prefer taking a road in Spiti valley over Ladakh. Reason? Sooner or later Ladakh is full of crazy rush of tourists, be it during the season time or off the season. However, Spiti valley altogether is untouched as of now since people there are more or less restricted to only a visit to Chandratal. But the real story starts after Kunzum Pass. There you fill find hell lot of heavenly beauty which is unexplored by many. Together with Lahaul valley, it forms Lahaul-Spiti district. Spiti is not a destination, it’s an experience in itself. Personally, I find this one of the most thrilling road trips in India.

4.Gangtok to Gurudongmar lake

Snow-capped mountains, curvy roads, the valley of flowers, lush green valley, highest lakes of India, countless waterfalls and affable people willing to welcome you with open heart; what else can you ask for a perfect dream road trip. GuruDongmar lake is located at 174 km from Gangtok in Sikkim. The roads from Gangtok to the lake are motorable and various transport options are available from buses to jeeps and taxis. The drive through the mountains is mesmerizing. One needs to get a proper license of Inline Permit before visiting the lake since it’s a sensitive area from the military point of view due to its proximity to the Indo-China Border.

5. Ahmedabad to Kutch

A road trip from Ahmedabad to Kutch is one of a kind experience. This trip will take you through wetlands, deserts, and crystal blue beaches within a matter of days. The weather is always warm and sunny and the road stretch is of 404 km, which will at least take you 6 hours 30 mins to complete. Although, the beauty of the destination will compensate for all that strain. Once you reach Kutch, you can experience the freedom to drive on a 7000 square km of dried seabed in Little Rann. Enough of deserts? You can even try relaxing by the dangling waters of Arabian sea at Mandvi beach. Truly one of the best road trips in India.

So how about you ditch your monotonous life, pack your bags, take out your vehicle and just ride away?

1. Gokarna

The place is calm, less crowded and no one to disturb you. That’s exactly what a trippy traveler like you would want right? All you got to do is hit that Pink Floyd playlist, hit the pot and hit the place. Gokarna is a place of natural diversity. From temples to beaches to wall arts and graffiti, Gokarna has it all. Visiting this place during offseason has its own advantages, there’s peace and no soul around to crowd the place.

2. Alleppey

Referred to as the Venice of the East, Alappuzha is famous for its boat races, backwater holidays, houseboat cruise, beaches and marine products. Alappuzha or Aleppy will act as a drug for your mind, body, and soul. It’s a bit of magic to witness the calm atmosphere and the musical sounds of the mystic river as you sail through narrow streams in a houseboat. A two day stay in a houseboat is advisable for the best experience.

3. Mawlynnong

In the midst of communal tension and the hustle and bustle of the country, there exists a place that is disconnected from all this. This place happens to be Mawlynnong in the beautiful state of Meghalaya. Asia’s cleanest village, the place is just heaven. From the second you step your foot in this place, you know you won’t ever feel like leaving. The place will take you back into the era of the 60s since there’s no evidence of any modern setup. Here you can truly connect with mother nature experience the good vibes coming.

4. Varkala

This is one non-commercialized side of the heavenly state of Kerala.  The Varkala beach is home to a large number of hippies and is considered to be the perfect place for getting trippy. No one will care what you’re doing and you can be all by yourself. I’d recommend, find a corner on this spectacular beach, sit under one of those tall palm trees and while listening to some good music, get lost in a state of trance.

5. Almora

Also known as the ‘Hippie Hill’, This place in Uttrakhand is isolated from the world and would remind you of the charm of the 60s and 70s. This explains why the place is so much loved by the nirvana seekers.  At times, when you decide to take a trip to self-discovery, this place is the best resort. Truly one of the best places to get high in India.
