Go-Carting now reaches Himalayan circuit

Go-carting is now a popular event across India with its presence in major cities of India and the Himalayan circuit as well.Recently on my visit to one of the fun filled cities of India,Shimla I came to know the existence and the importance of Go-Carting in Kufri,Shimla.It’s one of the popular events in Himachal apart from skiing,paragliding and rock climbing.

The importance of this activity is felt in a more promising way due to the presence of pristine mountains of Greater Himalayas and alpine meadows.The ground is spread across a major area in a serene and calm environment bordering the mountains and enclosing the Himalayan circuit.I felt it more promising than other go-carting venues across India due to its geographical location and bearings.

Travelers get seven rides for a trip and also enjoy the environment alongside the drive and some other rides and happenings in the fun world.The magic lies in the wheels and the speed of these go-carting vehicles which makes it unexampled and distinct as compared to its peers.There is also an option of changing the wheels or the cart vehicle in the middle of the ride if one wants to while doing a self ride in the artery.

Elephants:Best ecosystem architects of Nature

Elephants are the best ecosystem architects of Nature and they play a very vital role in maintaining the habitats.They are preserved and nurtured properly in forests and other biospheres as they help to sustain the ecological balance of the environment.Elephants are big sized species on land till now defeating its peers and other foes and can be considered as an important animal with large benefits.

They are considered as water sources in Wild jungles as they help to dig wells and find water for other species and organisms so people run after them for search of water.They also sustain the environment where they thrive by clearing out big trees and barks making space for other organisms to live on the habitat.Their dung can be considered as an important step towards growth of seeds,etc.

They serve a very useful purpose by helping other organisms and animals in the habitat.Without them,the entire ecosystem is empty and void.Lot of care is now being taken in forests of Bandipur,Mudumalai,Kanha and Corbett to preserve them and realize their importance and virtue and the good they do to others.In my opinion,they are the largest creatures in land and the best ecosystem engineers of any nation so proper steps should be taken to nurture and feed them and prevent from becoming endangered.

Yumthang:An eternal place in the Lap of Nature

Yumthang is a magical place in the travel dictionary of North Sikkim and situated in the extreme corner of the Eastern Himalayas.Not known by many,this place offers a breath taking view of the Mighty Himalayas and a tributary of the river Teesta flows past the valley.This place is actually a silent valley in North Sikkim and also known by the name Valley of Flowers of the East.

We reached Lachung by traveling a distance of around 12 hours in car to acclimatize the day and spend the night at the lodge and get ready the next day for travel to Yumthang valley.Lachung is actually the gateway to the valley and proper arrangements available for travelers to spend the night in proximity with the Himalayan serenity.It takes around 1 hour to reach Yumthang from Lachung but the place remains covered with snow during maximum time of the year so the proper season to visit this valley would be around March-April.

After reaching Yumthang,there were the dense forests of mighty Himalayas and the sweet chirping sounds of the birds and the high flowing stream of the river Teesta that stole our breadth and we got lost in the beauty and the magnificence of the enigmatic divinity.Few tea stalls were available in the region we had to wear our woolen clothes tight to beat the bitter coldness across the region.Yumthang is actually a beautiful place in the lap of Nature among rhodendrons and wild flowers and the presence of natural snow makes it really splendid and magnificent and a wonderful destination to witness the grandiosity of the mighty Himalayas.

Chocolate Caramels of Western Ghats

When it comes to select the best chocolate caramels in India,it has to be none other than the ones that are found in the Western Ghats.There are chocolate museums in different corners  of the region that urges people to take a step forward and visit the museums where these chocolates are manufactured and sold in white boxes.Travelers come to know the actual process implemented nowadays to make and manufacture these chocolates and give them the spice that can attract millions in the country.

The promising feature lies in their variety and taste due to which people visit these museums and factories in huge numbers and give them first priority before convoying the region and enjoying its distinction and eminence.There are quite a few number of chocolate  factories established in the area and recently launched museums to depict their importance and brilliance.Travelers also get a chance to actually taste and smell these chocolates  before actually purchasing them.

The various varieties that are really appealing to the travelers are white chocolates,fruit chocolates,the flavored ones and the dark brown ones.Fruit chocolates are the most expensive and unique ones not found in all corners of the country.They are normally charged in the price range of Rs 100-200 for every 100 grams and the most widely sold amongst the rest.The chocolate factories and museums are normally placed adjacent to the tea and the oil factories so that people coming from different corners of the world know their variety and richness in terms of the quality.They are even sold in different city outlets almost in the same price ranges so that there is no discrimination between the ones that are available in the authorized factories.

Chasing the Wild at Bandipur

It was an enticing empiricism to chase the wild at Bandipur National Park at Karnataka.Two hours short drive from Ooty takes us to the Man Eaters of Nilgiris which is a part of the Nilgiris Biosphere reserve.There are deodar,pine trees and most of the area traveled is covered with forests and creates an impeccable hysteria in the minds of  wildlife enthusiasts across the country.It is a notable place in the minds of wildlife photographers and nature lovers and enthusiasts and is worth a visit during any time of the year.

There are waterfalls,tea gardens,border check posts between the two adjoining states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.The tourism sector is prevalent in these areas as the only means of business across the region.One important factor that fascinates me are the chocolate factories all along the way and some museums depicting the importance of various brands of chocolates.They are affordable and within the reach of the middleman and sold in grams in various town outlets.

Tiger spotting was something that did not materialize due to lack of time and hectic
schedule.The national bird,wild elephants,different types of deer,sloth bear,unique monkeys were visible in the jungle areas traversed in the safari bus.It is quite refreshing for the mind and the body and more importantly the eyes to visit the green areas of the region that creates an unfathomable interest to convoy this important forest area.Bandipur remains the largest national park in Karnataka defeating its peers and competitors.Lot of care is being taken by the Govt Of Karnataka and developments being undertaken in different forms to preserve
the area covered under forests and maintain its dignity.

Dry deciduos forests are dominant in the national park and adjoining areas of Bandipur tiger reserve which is located in the area compounding the Deccan Plateau and Western Ghats.There are lot of flora depicting the value of the region including bamboo,rosewood,sandalwood and other endangered species which are found in various corners of the forests.Overall it was an important and exciting travel adventure during my travel lifespan to cherish good memories for the future.

Trekking gears

Security

The choice of trekking gears can be a tough one but it should vest on the individual to decide on the correct one depending upon the shape,size and height of the person.It is best to get the gears from an authorized sports shop that can provide the best and smartest choice at an affordable price.

Trekking on the skiing zone of Narkanda

I got my hiking dress from one of the authorized sports shop in Manali and was quite fortunate enough to get the proper color for the trail that suits my personality.It was an indigo coloured hiking dress that I wear everytime I go for a trail.It gives me extra security and I don’t need a jacket above it to protect myself.It’s quite warm and I can survive the cold bitterness of the region and manage the body heat.

Among other gears I prefer branded black colored sports shoes as I want to get rid of buying a new one every time and can get expensive at times.I do carry a cyan colored torch light to get some spark during twilight and dusk and has the best energy level.I do carry one stove,5 mineral water bottles that is capable of holding 2 litres of water.jackets are an option and I rarely use them,instead I would prefer a windcheater to get rid of the cold breeze blowing across the hamlet.We have to make the smartest choice in choosing the right and proper gears for any hiking event as it would give all the fun and security required for the trail.

Fuel Efficient cars in Nepal

When it’s time to decide on the best cars to opt for in Nepal,we should go for none other than Tata Motors with its huge brand and publicity in India and neighboring countries.Nepal is well known for its tourism and hotel industry and the best solution that they can give to their customers is to provide an eco friendly and fuel efficient way of transportation.Tata Motors comes first in that distinction and best prices and stocks can be found in the following link https://tatamotors.com.np/.

The very essential and minute things to consider before the buyer goes for the different varieties are safety features,service delivery,availability of spare parts,ground clearance,insurance,financial facilities and interest rates,mileage and most importantly the road price.All the above factors are considerable and duly achievable in Tata Motors global manufacturing.

Various travel and trekking agencies have achieved the same by going for the largest brand in India and doing pretty well in attracting customers and clients.It is essential to go for a routine check before selecting the best fuel efficient ones but most importantly the focus should be on the mileage and the safety features available.Considering the destination and the tourism sector in the country,it is best to go for the wider and the bigger varieties which can easily manage the higher slopes and ridges across the mountains and provide the best means of transportation.

Also while considering exchange of goods,Tata prima can be the smartest choice although it has only been launched in Saudi Arabia and we are waiting for its future launch in other countries.Considering the sales of the company,it is pretty up and higher and increased substantially over the years defeating its peers and creating a substantial value and sense of recognition in the minds of the customers and potential clients.Overall,it must be a riveting acquaintance for both the customer and the seller in getting their money worth and the product they wish to sell to increase their brand awareness.

Compared to other small hill stations,this place also offers accommodation to tourists coming from different corners who wish to stay a day or two to acclimatize with the environment and observe the offerings of Mother nature.There are some pristine snow clad peaks visible from the sphere and wildlife adventure thriving in the deodar forests.Sunrise point,rock climbing, and orchard visits are some of the promising tourists attractions in the region that urges real time travelers to convoy the sphere along with the grandiosity and the majesty of the Mighty Himalayas.We brought some woolen clothes which are quite popular in the region and we camped in a place close to the forest area to feel the essence and the grandeur of the place to its fullest.

On the way to Mukteshwar

Temperature of the region remains mostly subtropical and I chose December month to visit the circuit along with one of my friend to witness the chillness and the eminence of the unblemished peaks of the Kumaon ranges with Nanda Devi amongst the prominent ones.The winter months of December and January are the best time as there are no climatic huddles that can play spoilsport to one’s plans of convoying the entire proximity under consideration.It was an enthralling and spellbinding experience for me and my companion to contrive unforgettable reflection and recognition of this divine place which is a must visit destination for all mountain lovers and pilgrims across the terrene.
