  19. My friend and fellow moderator Sagar always wanted to explore Gujarat. Personally, I had very less expectations on Rann of Kutch. When he came up with Gujarat, our plan started to take its shape but I tried to skip it. I have initiated different plans and suggestions, but he did not budge. On one fine day, he booked the tickets from Hyderabad to Ahmedabad. We pulled in a few more friends and Now we are a group of 10 members ready to explore Gujarat. Car booking: Our next step was to book self drive cars, Only options available were Zoom and Myles. All

  21. Wonderful report @Saran. You have beautifully crafted the whole trip into a report with beautiful pictures explaining the whole of action in detail. Cheers to that I am sharing a few pictures taken from my mobile As we started our boat ride from the base towards the so called Mysterious island. The boat ride was fun with these cheerful souls. The sky got darker by the time we reached the Island. Probably the most grained out picture of the early morning sunrise captured on my mobile. Beautiful view of t

  22. We had reached the Thatiguda waterfall point and the views which the valley had offered was just breathtaking. Few stairs down to reach the foot of the falls Breathtaking view of the valley between the clouds The sun shone bright that noon. But, rain was all we had expected which could have shown up more green to the naked eye. The water flow at the Thatiguda waterfall disappointed us but the view what we had experienced at this place was quite refreshing. Thatiguda village was surrounded by a lo

  23. No matter what happens in your life, nothing beats a good drive with like minded enthusiasts. The explorers Sometimes, a perfect sunrise is all you need. Brothers for life. There are only few weekends left before the kids leave to school and some fathers use them wisely. There is nothing like enjoying the sunset with your loved ones. Friends, bonfire, BBQ and camping. What more is needed? Collect moments and not things. A happy family! Next time we shall buy

  24. After a fun filled tiring night, all the 'India-drive men' woke up to an early morning trek up the hill besides the Koilsagar reservoir to watch the Sunrise. The trek up the hill was pretty good involving a lot of co-ordination among the members We have traversed through the thorny bushes exploring the place to reach the top of the hill Even the little one was so energetic and enthusiastic with no looking back while trekking up the hill. Our simple rule to ascend up the hill until we find a flat area rest under the sky has bee

First glimpse of the Koilsagar project All of us aligned our cars to park them through perfection and started to explore the place A perfect dawn for all the efforts we took to reach there.

  28. It was Dec of 2018, my wife had a full week plan in the Christmas to go to Calcutta to meet her family. We usually travel together, be it for a trip or a visit to our hometown, Calcutta. But this time it was impossible for me to get a leave sanction of a week or 10 days, due to my office commitments. Without any other choice she booked her flight to Calcutta during Christmas. At the same time I thought, I can get 4 days for a trip, 23rd to 26th , if I can manage 2 days leave. ( I have Saturday office). Since long, two of the many things of my bucket list were: 1)

Day - 2 (Contd.. ) We spent there for about 2 hours exploring and resting at the top edge of the cliff clicking pictures A deep valley and impassable hills surrounded by massive boulders of red granite, does remind us of the Grand Canyon and probably that's why it is called so. All the cheerful souls got engaged in losing themselves in the tranquillity of nature Overlooking at our campsite away from a short early morning trek before we had our breakfast.

  30. My ride from Valparai to Athirapally can be considered as one of the best rides in south India. This route passes through the beautiful rain forests of the Western Ghats and is one of the best ways to enjoy the solitude of forest. Beautiful view of the Monkey falls at Pollachi from its foot. Beautiful view of the Aliyar reservoir. The view of the reservoir from Valparai hair pins, in the early morning was something that will make you stare at it endlessly. I stopped next to the Sholayar Reservoir for Tea, walked down and sat by the side of the

  31. Monsoon, Mist and madness are a perfect combo especially with the fog surrounding the rocks will make you rethink if this holds any mystery with nature. Silver cascade falls, Kodaikanal Uprooted trees of Banyan at Devil's Kitchen, Guna caves. Having spent 2 nights and 3 days in Vattakanal, Kodaikanal, I set my drive back to the base Hope this helps our fellow travel enthusiasts to a certain extent in making their travel a glorious one.

More wind mills Saran started pushing his car on to those empty lands and it's time to kick in some dust. It was short and a quick meet. It was nice meeting Vamshi for the first time and we were amazed how his lancer had performed throughout the drive. Varun's and Saran's black mambas rocked as usual.

Ravi exploring the place in his THAR. Beautiful sight! We started the trek around 7 AM. Narrow passages. Numerous quick breaks in between.

  34. Planning for the road trip started almost a month ago. We started an exclusive 'WhatsApp' group and the interested members started to add up. Our initial plan was to limit to 30 members, but the number went up to 60 within two days. So we decided to extend limit to 60 members. And for the members who have reached us after we crossed the limit of 60, there is always a next time to be responsive before the slots fill up. It has been the largest 'India-Drive' meet so far and one of the best over night camping experience. To travel with 21 cars, a lot of planning was required, as

  35. While we enjoyed the dawn by the lake bed, all of us teamed up to gather the necessary material required for the Barbecue and bonfire simultaneously. As it got dark, all of us got involved into star gazing session. A huge shout to Mr. Dhiraj for his immense knowledge sharing session on star trails at night. Cheers to the whole crew for their active participation in marinating the food for barbecue and setting up the grill. All that team effort and co-ordination between the members is one reason for a fun filled and an eventful night. All the

  43. We did not go to the top of the foot hill and decided to head back due to time constraint. In our return journey we explored a few trails near the sanctuary. Formula that I learnt, go an extra kilometer and it is never crowded! We drove around 2 kilometers into the tails. And the sun started to rise Ignore the quality, captured on my mobile Stay close to the Nature. What would you prefer, a luxury hotel or to camp in the middle of a farm like this? We watched the beautiful sunrise.
