Gujarat is a land of colors, food, and people. As much as we appreciate people getting engage themselves with planning, It is also our responsibility to create an itinerary for their perfect Gujarat weeklong tour.

Gujarat in colors

Gujarat is one of the best states in India to plan a tour in the winter season. The “Run of Kuch” desert festival is a key item in the MoT catalog. Ahmedabad, the capital of the state is home to world-famous Kakaria Lake. Somanath Temple of the state influence a lot of Hindu travelers to visit its premises. Gir National Park in Gujrat is a home to incredible flora and fauna. At the top of this – Garba, regional dance of Gujrat calls a lot of attraction.

This combination is very to be find in a single state. These layers are so vibrant that you can not get enough anytime.

Itinerary for Gujarat Weeklong Tour

Let first reach to Ahmadabad, after reaching here sightseeing the city which have the ample things to do. In Ahemdabad we can visit the Ghandi Ashram, Science City, Ashramdham Temple (specifically the night show which held after the 8.00 clock), Sabharmati Ashram and many more things if have the time like visiting the local market (khan market).

After the city, move to Dwarka Dhish temple which is present at the shore of the Arabian Sea. It’s a place which makes you calmer and sooth the hazard thoughts. After spending the time, next move to Bedh Dwarka which is an island form. Then After this next move to the Somnath Temple which is also on the shore present temple, in addition to we also visit the Gir National Park. 

Then back to Ahmedabad again go back to home. Hope this journey made you more strong then ever you will be.

Some of the best places that we need to travel are hidden under their own folds, likewise, we found Tilgan. Its the kind of location which not even exists on Google Maps, that’s for sure. 

Tilgan is a grassy sloppy piece of land located in the mid of Himalayan region near Manali. It took us 5 Hrs to reach this place from Jagatsukh Village. But when we reached here, we found the peace. Natural Sanctuary of Tilgan is truly something. Covered with timberlands from all directions. Displaying the gigantic mountain views. Crossing paths with a lot of streams. This place is what we need to escape from the world.

The trek to this wonderland was also one of the best we had in a while. Its not like something you go in alone. Trek to Tilgan, ways from villages, local residences, grazing animals in the woods – things that bring colors to the journey.

These are the things that generates some emotions in the way. And with courtesy to our trek guide we had 2 great dogs, that accompanied us while the trek.

After this experience, our company has decided to customize a new trek to “The Tilgan Trek”, which will be a 2 day exploration. The weekend trek, which will be released in the year 2019.” Let’s hope that goes well.

The things which will be promised by the trek will be – Trekking, Camping, Nature Sightseeing, Forest Walk, Bonfire, Food, and Memories. As for now, our team is working to craft this trek more effective to replace the old terrains of Himachal Pradesh.

We feel to draft an article after our last trip on Trekking Shoes or Boots, What is the difference?  A general question that needs to be clearly answered after our last Manali Trekking Exploration

Hand on experience of Trekking Shoes or Boots – The Boot Tragedy.  

In during that trip, one of our co-traveler was wronged by a local shopkeeper to buy boots for trekking instead of trekking shoes. Because of which she suffered a lot during the whole trek. Her legs got swollen. Toes were in bad condition and some of us was covering her up.

The scenario she faced was major because of her shoes. Now, why? She was wearing a perfect boot – Hard sole, Leather made, with good grip over the foot and moreover a good price tag.

People generally misunderstand the concept of Trekking Shoes. The trekking shoes are made to be wear for a longer duration with vividness in the terrain to walk. They came with adequate grip towards the foot and floor. Specifically designed to provide you with support at ankle and toes. Also, to reduce the force of movement and absorbs somewhat of shocks.

She was so in pain that she even fixed cotton & bandages to support her feet inside the shoes, but that was not a permanent option. After that trip, we always suggest our guest have proper trekking shoes for multiday treks.

Trekking Shoes or Boots, What is the difference?
Trekking Shoes or Boots, What is the difference?

In India, we are privileged to have trekked for all seasons, which arises the query which one to be preferred – .

In our response, you must go for both treks. The experience will be absolutely different. Most people prefer summer treks because of Safe Environment and holidays also supports them. But, in the latest trends, people are now engaging themselves with winter treks also to experience the snow. 

In India, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir are major landmarks for the winter treks. Chopta-Chandrasheela, Cheddar Trek [Frozen Lake Trek] and Kuari Pass Trek are some good treks of this time.

During Winter treks, one has less time to cover up the distance, more slippery slopes, views are gigantic but a lot of whiteness will be there. Summer Treks on other hand gives you lively views of greenry, forests, woods and allows you to travel with more daytime.

So, choosing a right trek is not that difficult. But we suggest, that you first go for a summer trek to be on safe side, then forward to a winter trek.

Also, to mention, winter treks generally require continuous physical check-up’s. So before planning a trip, you must be physically fit.

You can leave the queries to our comments section.

Which one is better "Summer Trekking or Winter Trekking"?
Which one is better “Summer Trekking or Winter Trekking”?

From our experience of trekking and regular queries from our guests, we decided to put an informative article to answer the question: How to choose best trekking shoes?

Let us put this first that no trek is same, choosing and investing in trekking shoes must be according to your preference of treks and how often you found are you of going outdoors.

Consider this: If you are going for a weekend trek to Kasol-Kheerganga, Mcleodganj-Triund, Manali Old Town, or somewhere else, then you might not need that costly trekking shoes. Ordinary, sports shoes with good grip and effective grasping over your foot will work perfectly. Generally, this applies over treks with difficulty level from Easy to Moderate.

While for treks like Hamta Circuit Trek, Beas Kund, Kuari Pass, Valley of Flowers, or more like these you need to invest a little in your trekking shoes. We usually find that these treks took 3-5 days and you need better shoes to support your foot base. For these treks, you can bring shoes with hard sole grip, more tradeblocks, shoe lace effective to tighten the shoes effectively and Water Resistant.

Now for Pro Trekkers. When one becomes a usual trekker, he/she knows what kind of shoes are better for them. After experience from the previous trek, one crafts his/her image of shoes and they end up with one. Still, for reference, we are putting the effective parameters for pro trekking shoes with our next article. 

Forward all your queries to the comment box.
