One Day Stay At Horcho Guest House: Spacious, Nice & Clean

Staying at a homestay is the best way to explore local culture and cuisine. During a recent trip to Ladakh’s Nubra Valley, me and my friends decided to stay at Horcho Guest House, located in Hunder. Surrounded by rugged mountains and dense forest, this is a perfect place to spend some quality time there. It was a pleasure to behold the whole area. This is what I felt after just one day stay. A variety of colorful flowers will welcome you when you enter the guesthouse. The owner of the guesthouse told me that he has turned this into a homestay so that travelers get an authentic experience. He has also cultivated variety of vegetables ranging from cauliflowers to pea around his home. One can freely enjoy the surrounding areas which are filled with streams and forests. I woke up early morning and decided to take a long walk. The chirping of birds and the gentle stream sounds made me more than happy. It was a perfect journey, which left great memories.

Rooms are clean and tariffs start from Rs1,000.

A Photo Essay On Pangong Tso

Like many travelers, I too made a trip to Pangong Tso, one of the most beautiful and enchanting lakes in India. I always wanted to photograph this place after seeing numerous snaps on Internet. After a lot of negotiation with a couple of travel agencies in Leh, I finally found two couples, who agreed to travel with me. We hired a Xylo and luckily we got a good driver. After several hours of journey, we reached our destination. I took a deep breath and started clicking pictures of this breathtaking lake, which is surrounded by barren yet dramatic mountains. I stayed at a small homestay, while my friends preferred tents. The owner of the homestay shared many interesting stories about lake, business, daily life and visitors over a cup of tea. Now I will let you to enjoy the snaps.

Hope, You Are OK

This gentle and innocent animal somehow managed to come out from his abode (Chitwan National Park). I was having my breakfast at a roadside tea stall when I heard some noise. I immediately took out my DSLR from my bag and captured his beauty.

Veerabhadra Temple – India’s Pride

My wish to visit Lepakshi’s famous Veerabhadra Temple and explore its architectural beauty has come true! I managed to visit the place during my recent rip to Bengaluru.

Words will not be enough to describe the stunning 16th century temple, which is just 140km from Bengaluru. I was enthralled by the huge temple complex and its architectural splendors. Dedicated to Lord Veerabhadra, the temple could be divided in three main parts – Mukha mantapa, arda mantapa and the garbhagriha. The Vijayanagara architectural style is quite visible on the temple.

And one can clearly notice carvings and paintings at almost every part of the temple.

One of the most attractive features of the temple is a massive monolith structure of Nagalinga. Overall, the whole temple is a masterpiece.

How I reached the place: I took a city bus from Gunjur Pallaya (where I was staying) to Kempegowda Bus Station. It took me around 1 hour and 15 minutes. From Kempegowda, I took another bus to Hindupur. The bus journey was approximately 3 and half hour journey. From Hindupur, I boarded another bus to reach the temple. So basically it was a one day trip from Bengaluru.
