This Is How Cola Beach Stole My Heart

Goa’s Agonda beach has been favorite among locals as well as tourists since long. In fact it has been adjudged as one of the best beaches in Asia. But if you ask me, I would say Cola is more beautiful. That being said, I believe experiences are purely subjective.

Cola is not far away from Agonda and there are many ways to reach this magnificent beach.  And the most simple way is – follow the signboards:)

I visited Cola during the off season, and no wonder I could see only a handful of people on the beach. It was hot and sunny, but that’s OK for me, I could still have a wonderful time. With nobody around me, I just lay down on the beach and let myself soak up the serene environment and gaze the endless bluish sky.
The magnificent beach can be divided into two parts – North Cola and South Cola. North mainly draws tourists because of its beautiful lagoon. Trees and hills make this beach more beautiful. I did not find any high-end hotel there, only few beach shacks. Small hotels and tented accommodation are also available for the tourists. Overall, I had a great time being there and aim to re-visit the place in future. And lastly, if I have to describe the beauty of Cola in two words, I would say – Pristine and Perfect!

South Goa’s Marvelous Raj Baga Beach

After spending few hours in Palolem and Patnem, I moved towards Raj Baga beach, following advise from a bar owner. After a short drive from Patnem, I reached Raj Baga late afternoon. The day was hot and humid. Probably this was the main reason why I came across an almost deserted beach. After an hour, everyone had left and I was the only person present on the beach to marvel at its beauty. The beach is lined with numerous coconut and palm trees. Once you are there you can enjoy the beauty of river kissing the sea as the confluence of the Arabian sea and Talpona River is clearly visible on the far end of the beach. After taking permission from a lifeguard, I ventured into the sea. Few beach shacks were serving juices and coconut waters at attractive prices. Due to the off-season, they were offering good discounts which also make business sense. I spent nearly two hours at the beach and did not notice how quickly the time had passed. I had thoroughly enjoyed each and every moment of my stay there. If you are in South Goa, please do not forget to include a visit to this place in your itinerary. Highly and heavily recommended !!! I had to seek help from local people to reach the destination as my mobile GPS was not working.

My Tryst With Mountains Of Ladakh

I set out on my journey for Ladakh with photography as my primary target. My five days trip took me to a couple of well-known places of Ladakh. I approached a number of travel agencies with a request to accommodate me with other travelers as I didn’t know how to ride a bike and for Ladakh you need one. I found that almost all the travelers had their own bikes and cars. Finally, one travel agency found a travelers group for me who were willing to take me in their group. Ladakh’s beauty lies in its dramatic mountains. With different shapes and colors, the mountains continue to fascinate visitors. I clicked hundreds of beautiful snaps with the help of my DSLR. But my heart still longs for the place and perhaps another trip is required to soak in the serenity of this enchanting place.
