Exploring 'The Pink City' and 'The City of Lakes' 

 

 

Rajasthan is the largest state in India and has got a lots of places to visit which needs so much time. But, in this trip I've tried to explore 'the pink city' - Jaipur and 'the city of Lakes' - Udaipur.

I’ll keep my introduction about this state to the minimum and will let the pictures do all the talking.

Here I am trying to share with you some of the best places to visit which should not be missed when you are visiting Jaipur and Udaipur.

 

Jaipur - Photologue

Places covered : Nahagarh Fort, Jaigarh Fort, City Palace and Hawa Mahal.

 

This Hawal Mahal palace is popularly known as the ‘Palace of Breeze’ and is very famous among the tourists who visit Jaipur for the first time.

  • Our picks

    • Malgund beach – a hidden paradise
      Note: Lockdown is over not the Pandemic. We request travelers to follow all safety measures.
       
      Malgund beach – a hidden paradise
      A beautiful drive to konkan beach.
      We have taken at most care like,
      -          Used personal car for all drive.
      -          Stayed in friend’s resort which is clean and hygiene.
      -          Used face mask and sanitizers wherever required.
      -          Avoided crowded places. Planned travel on weekdays
      My companion in travel.
      -       Smartphone Poco f1 
      -       Canon 1300d             
      Difficulty level:
      -       No problem for elders and kids.
      Road conditions:
      -       I travelled from Pune, hence took below route
      -       Home in Pune – Satara – Umbraj – Patan – Chiplun – Malgund beach         
      -       Roads are good From Pune till Patan. From Patan to Chiplun roads are average to worst (specially ghat section). From Chiplun to Ganpatipule average (road widening going on).
       
      Best time to visit:
      -       Through out the year once can visit this place.   
       
      Getting There :
      By Air : Nearest airport is mumbai.
      By Rail : Nearest Railway Station is ratnagiri.
      By Road : 1 Km - Distance from ganpatipule to malgund beach.
       
       
      Places to see nearby :
      1. Ganapatipule temple and beach
      2. Pawas
      3. Parshuram temple
      4. Marleshwar
       
      Malgund beach location: https://goo.gl/maps/kwcCd3jUnGa4YCNu6
       
      Malgund, a small village, 1 km away from ganpatipule beach, is known as the birthplace of famous Marathi poet Keshavasuta, who was born here in 1866. He is regarded as a poet who heralded the dawn of modern Marathi poetry. There is a monument at Malgund dedicated to his work and also a museum where you can find information on most of the modern day poets of Marathi language. The memorial is a real treat for people who are interested in Marathi literature. Malgund also houses Nirmal Nagari of Her Holiness Mrs. Nirmala Shrivastava of Sahaja Yoga fame.
      In memories of him kavi keshasut smarak is built in malgund. Many tourists prefer to stay in malgund instead of ganpatipule due to calm and quiet nature and no commercialization.
      We stayed in Sagar Darshan Beach resort. This resort just adjacent to beach and one can enjoy to full extent. I recommend this resort.
      After March, the temperature starts rising but rarely crosses 30 °C. May is the hottest month, with temperatures reaching 40 °C. The monsoon lasts from June to October, when rains are usually plentiful and regular.

    • Hyderabad to South India, First road trip of 2021
      Places Travelled
      Hyderabad - Tirupati - Kanchipuram - Madurai - Rameshwaram - dhanushkodi - palani - Guruvayur - coimbature - Bangalore - Lepakshi - Hyderabad
       
      No. of people 5 in Vitara Brezza
       
      Day 1: Hyderabad to Tirupati Day 2:Dharshan at Tirupati Day 3:Tirupati to kanchipuram Day 4:kanchipuram to madurai Day 5:Madurai to Rameshwaram and dhanushkodi Day 6: Dhanushkodi to gurvayur via palani Day 7: Gurvyaur to coimbatore Day 8: Coimbatore to hyderabad via bangalore and lepakshi  
      First trip of 2021 has became the best trip till now. Travelled around 3500kms. Planned to visit all the places of southern part but rain has ruined all our plans.
      Heavy rains in Tamilnadu.
       
      Best Moment: 
      Visiting my dream place "Dhanushkodi", The Last Road Of India. Everyone must visit, but not while raining. Goosebumps moment when we reach the destination. The sound of waves at one side, eyes full of happiness at another side, this is what everyone needs. 
       
      Road Conditions:
      Overall the road conditions was awesome with minimum potholes.
      A small suggestion: when you travel through some village, it is better to ask localities about the route than blindly believing on Google Maps. If Stuck in traffic by believing on GMaps.
       
      Expenses:
      Diesel: 18000/-
      Food and beverages: 10000/-
      Room: 15000/-
      Toll Tax: 2100/- 
       
      The best food we ate was Dindigul Thalappakatti biryani.
       
      Funny Incident: 
      Bangalore has fined us for not wearing masks inside the car.
      we are not aware that we should wear mask in car while travelling with windows rolled up.
       
      We were by 250rs each. The fun is police where stopping only outside state cars, they aren't stopping Karnataka registered vehicles.
       
      We found few people travelling in KA registered vehicle, they are not wearing any masks. when we ask police to stop them, Cops answer Thum jhakey roko na ghadi ko". This is kind of discrimination which every traveler hates.

    • Kokankada, Harishchandra gad & Taramati peak - A dream climb
      Due to pandemic we have taken at most care like,
      -          Used personal car for all drive.
      -          Used face mask and sanitizers wherever required.
      -          Planned travel on weekdays and believe me it was worth.
      of going towards Konkan Kada. From Kelewadi village onwards, an ascend via the steep slope of Sadhle Ghat brings you on the top. It is best to descend from Harishchandragad via Sadhle Ghat instead of ascending it.
      Route 5: Pachnai
      Pachnai is the simplest route to Harishchandragad and absolutely recommended for anyone of any age. From the Pachnai village, it takes around 2.5-3 hours to reach Harishchandragad. A guide is available at the Pachnai village if required.
      FOOD AND STAY
      A few villagers from Paachnai village make food and tent arrangements at the top of the fort. The meal includes bhakri, bhaaji, daal, bhat, etc. along with snacks such as kanda bhaji, pohe, tea, etc. They stay in a couple of huts near Harishchandreswar temple.

    • Turbo charged engines; do we know other side of the coin?
      Turbo charged engines have slowly started gaining interest in India, rightly so, as they generate power and are fuel efficient. Turbo engines utilize the waste exhaust gases to generate more power, even out of a smaller engine. However, do we know other side of the coin; any potential issues or any longevity concerns of engine in real life? Please share your experiences. Is it worth shedding additional money on, in long term?
