Mild Moments At Wildflower Hall

Frankly speaking, I am not a luxurious traveller as it could cost a bomb. However, free trips to luxurious hotels and resorts are more than welcome:) Thanks to Himalayan Natural Mineral Water, I won a travel contest on their Facebook page and won 2N/3D package at Wildflower Hall.

Nestled in the picturesque Shimla-Kufri highway, Wildflower Hall is a kind of place where luxury embraces tranquility. I loved every moment spent there.

What I liked most about this place is their lavish indoor pool and outdoor infinity pool. While one can spend great time at their open-air whirlpool, their indoor pool is also amazing.

The place is surrounded by long and thick trees, well-maintained by their staff.

Guests can rejuvenate their mind and body by indulging in various activities such as nature walks and yoga. Set over 23 acres of protected cedar forest, Wildflower Hall also provides a range of spa therapies (I opted for Oberoi therapy).

Their restaurant has a wide range of menus for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

Note: Their staff is very polite and make extra efforts to make you feel at home:)

How to reach there: Take a flight to Chandigarh and then book a cab. It will take approximately four hours to reach the destination. Alternatively, your hotel can book a cab for you. Chandigarh airport is well-connected to major Indian cities.

So when are you planning to visit this majestic resort ?

Tosh

How will you describe a place like Tosh, which is not far away from Kasol (However, you have to hire a taxi to visit this place)

Blessed with natural beauty, Tosh can easily motivate anyone to visit the village. This was what I felt the moment I landed there.

A small village with couple of colorful guesthouses and restaurants, Tosh is a place for those who look forward to attain mental peace and mediate in the lap of nature.

If you love nature photography, then this place will not disappoint you. I will suggest you to stay there for two days and enjoy the nature.
Now, I want you to go through the images, which might be helpful in motivating you to visit Tosh !

Paragliding In Bir And Billing

Where – Bir & Billing, Kangra, Himachal Pradesh.

Why – It is close to New Delhi and has a reputation to provide best service not only in India but also in Asia.

Service Provider – (Friends tour and travel) http://www.birbilling.com/

Tips – Do carry a small video camera to capture your experience. They charge Rs 500/- and the quality is not up to the mark. Also do carry a windcheater.

Climate – Your paragliding depends on the weather. It must be clear, windy and sunny.

Experience – Mind-blowing. The images say it all.

Masroor Temple – A New Discovery

Though Indian temples had always enticed me, the Masroor Temple in Kangra District of Himachal Pradesh left me gaping.

I rediscovered such a majestic temple in Himachal Pradesh, thanks to one of my friends, who recommended me to visit this temple.

Wow ! This was my instant reaction when I entered the temple, which I had never seen in my life. A pure and whole-some rock structure.

Situated near Lunj in Kangra, this temple is yet to be popular among tourists.

Known for its monolithic temples, the main shrine of the temples contains three stone images of Lord Ram, his brother Lakshman and wife Sita.

You will find a group of 15 shrines (Monolith Rock temple) built in the Indo-aryan style of architecture.

The temple is said to be built by the Pandavas during their exile period in the eighth century. Also known as the ‘Ajanta Ellora of Himachal Pradesh’, Musroor Temple is the only rock-cut temple in north India.

According to historians, this temple is one of the three of its kind in the country – two being very famous Ajanta cave in Maharashtra and Mammallapuran in Tamil Nadu.

When I landed there, I found no one except few temple management persons.

Situated on a hill, the temple complex has a huge rectangular water pond.

I spent nearly 30 minutes there and spirituality beckoned me. I felt calmness exist everywhere.

This is a temple which must be visited by every temple lover.

There is no direct bus to the place. It will be better if you hire a taxi from Lunj, which is 40 kilometers from Kangra.

So go and explore this beautiful place and do not forget to share your experience with me once you come back.
