Have you ever tried a rainy day road drive? If not, then you must plan a one. It will be an awesome experience.  Believe me.

We were on our way to Jaipur sightseeing and raining is all around. This city has magically spellbound in the rainy season. Seeing the traditional and heritage culture In Rajasthan is dream, while raining it seems icing on the cake. Jaipur is widely known for the diverse and wide range of heritage culture and traditional outfits rituals. 

While road drive to the city in the dense crowding road of the vehicle, and after covering the distance reaches in the main city. you will get the essence of the walking into the royal city, then further move under the Ajmeri Gate to Choti Chopard, you recognize why this city specially called the “Pink City”.

Then move along the roadside straightly with certain road shifts you will reach to the temple “Garh Ganesh”. A Lord Ganesha Temple which is present on a height of around 160 ft. To reach to the temple we have to come across the around 800 stairs.

While covering these come across the various regions like one side you have the view of the city and on the other side, you have the dense forest areas. In the raining season you see a lot of new species all around and a mind-blowing view of the city. 

After reaching to the top you see a big gate of the temple. while entering through the gate you see lots of mouse in black and white color. Take the blessing of the Lord Ganesha. Then move to the roof of the temple and take tranquil view of city and let the eyes catches most of the city areas. Spend the leisure time with your family and friends.

Stay bless.

Spending a day as I visited Jaipur is like to involve yourself with picturesque scenery. Its a dreamland for the person who wants to explore the unleashed history of the emperors. It’s a place which has the eternity of joyousness present.

Why I am saying ? What made me tell you? What bothers me to take a glance at this city? Even I still wonder how rich is the Rajasthan which holding such a dynamic history in their folded hands. Every city in the state possesses some massive historical background and customs.

Now coming back to answer to what made me thrill about the Jaipur. It is a place which has the long history of traditions and culture. Its a city which has the bigger forts like Amer Fort, Nahargarh Fort, and Jaigarh Forts. On the other hand, it having the vast collection of the architectural work like Jantar Mantar, Hawa Mahal, City Palace. Things weren’t finished yet its also having some precious collection of the past which present them in the Albert Hall.

Now due to the lack of time I have to stop for a while but its such a memorable place, so continue this after a break.

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.
