I started Travel and Photo Blogging since I am a hardcore traveler and a passionate writer and I would like to capture all the memories during my travel life span.I started blogging keeping in mind my passion for travel and would intend to make my life like a geo traveler.I started this website where I would like people to understand the importance of travelling in life and also value its importance.
.What is more important to me is to do small and good things in life and do something what the heart says.I normally use a DSLR or sometimes my smart phone to capture the images and edit and use it in my site.All the content in this site is original,written and edited by me and also 90 percent of the photos used in this site has been taken by me I go for travelling whenever I have free time normally during the weekends and also on holidays.I travel quite often within my country and have been to all major places and sometimes I also plan for neighboring countries of India.
Tales from an Indian Lepcha Village
Lepcha villages are quite popular in India and they are widespread across various areas and districts but few of them are also based out of the country as well.Having heard about them before drove me to a place known as Loleygaon in the Kalimpong district.A fours drive through the tea gardens and lush green fields and meadows was something to cherish this year end before the new year actually begins on a positive and striking note.The road was a challenging one through the river Teesta and gravel and rocks decussating museums and monastries along the route to the lepcha village.
There were wooden houses built by the locals in propinquity with the hotels and home stays available in the district.We had to traverse through the gravel road from a district known as Lava to reach the destination.On reaching the hamlet we could find lot of Buddhist paintings and statues portraying the importance of the religion and the people living in the district.The entire area was covered by the dense forests of the Neora Valley National park which is the gateway to this important village of Loleygaon.The route is a waved one through tough and steep ridges covered by thick and condensed
forests of the national park.
I could track some small houses and the people living inside them making some intelligent moves to improve their lifestyle and find some unique ways of earning their daily livelihood and maintain a decent style of living.Children were putting their hands to help parents in their daily work.They wore thick and woolen clothes to keep themselves wrapped up and protect from the cold and escape the bitterness of the temperature which goes beyond -10 degrees during the evening and night.Some villagers maintained shops for selling groceries,fruits,drinks and daily requirements of a household.Some people had their own cars for helping tourists coming to explore this beautiful lepcha village and the landscape surrounding it.There were tea gardens maintained
by the government and the private landlords in the outskirts of the village.Tea leaves are really popular for their taste,perfume and flavor in this part of the country and are exported worldwide.
The innocent faces of children made me feel for them and the alchemy drove me to one of the monastries helping the poor in funding the poorer ones without food and water.Their eyes were very captivating and alluring and they really looked blessed in getting the offerings of Nature helping them plant and grow their own food in the vicinity.The surrounding view of the snow clad peaks made the village look even more comely,dignified and conventional making it a succinct place in the lap of Eastern Himalayas.Not to mention about the colored leaflets being kept in the roadside to drive the wicked and the evil away from the region and trigger an alarm to the villagers to maintain peace and stability in the area.
