Through this post, I am going to take you on a journey up in the hills in the state of Uttarakhand, to a place less explored, to a place which is truly divine, to a place which radiates peace. This is Deoria Tal, a lake located in the upper crest of Rudraprayag, in the lap of nature. Continue reading “Deoria Tal….a heavenly lake @8000 feet”


Chandrashila——@13800 feet above sea level



You get up one fine morning, and find yourself on the top of a hill, surrounded by captivating green meadows, the view of the clear sky with a fine streak of red line at edges to welcome the sun and above all FRESH air 🙂 .

And so, one weekend, all of a sudden, we decided why not make a trip to Nainitaal, fondly referred to as “The Emerald Eye of  the Kumaon”. Unfortunately, 1 of my friends could not make it for the trip, due to some obligations. Nevertheless, rest of us made up our mind, to travel the next day early morning to Nainitaal. Although decision was taken quite late, arounDSCN1417d 10 o’clock on friday night, we rushed into full mood, by gathering numbers of different hotels from internet, calling them, asking for availability of rooms. Alas, we did not get any positive response 😦 . However, we were not disheartened. Continue reading “Nynee Taal…..”The Emerald Eye of the Kumaon”>>>Part 1″
