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.

From Bangkok To Ko Samet

IMG_7808
Koh Samet is one of the thousands of beautiful islands that one should explore in Thailand. Especially when you are in Bangkok and have little time on your hand.

IMG_20180319_175233
A four-hour journey from the capital city will take you to this tiny paradise, which is considered to be a protected zone.

IMG_20180321_073746
Pristine turquoise waters and powdery white sand beaches woo thousands of foreign and local tourists alike every day. It is easy to navigate in this area as it is very compact in size. I used a motorbike to explore the whole place.

IMG_20180319_164415

Ko Samet is largely a part of Khao Laem Ya-Mu Ko Samet National Park. One can indulge in watersports activities too, although I opted to enjoy my precious time on beaches.
One place which is highly recommended for a splendid evening is Naga Bar. Cheap prices make this place a favorite among tourists.

So, how to reach Koh Samet? As I was staying at Sukhumvit, I took a bus from Ekkamai Bus Terminal to Ban Phe. While buying bus tickets, I also booked a ferry ticket from Ban Phe to Ko Samet. It took approximately four hours from Bangkok to reach Ban Phe and from there, I took a ferry to Ko Samet. The short journey lasted 30 minutes.

The place is replete with numerous hotels, guest houses and bars. So don’t worry about accommodation. To explore this protected area, you need to buy a 200 bhat ticket which is valid for five days. Make sure you don’t lose the ticket, otherwise, you will have to buy another one.

There are too many temples be it ancient or modern in Karnataka. And One is bound to encounter with a temple in every nook and corner of a street in the state. These incredible temples entice me to explore more and more amazing structures in our country.

While driving on the Bellary road on NH – 7, me and my friend were unexpectedly stumbled upon an ancient temple. We had planned to explore Devanahalli Fort but we changed our mind due to hot sunny day. Instead, we visited Sri Venugopala Swamy temple, dedicated to a form of the Hindu God Vishnu.

Located in Devanahalli town, the temple is quite small but its ambiance is serene and vibrant.

Umngot River: Pure & Pristine

IMG_5505

After seeing the beautiful images of Umngot river over a thousand times on Social media, I finally made up my mind to see it in real. I hired a cab from Shillong and headed to Umngot river, which lies at Dawki, a small town situated near the Indo-Bangladesh border. It took me nearly two hours to reach the place.

It is probably one of the cleanest rivers in our country. The emerald green water, so pure and pristine. Surrounded by thick forest, the beauty of the river is unparalleled. It is a must visit place for any traveler. My driver told me that the river becomes crystal clear during the December-January period. Apart from enjoying the incredible view, one can take a boat ride, and do camping next to the lake. Local tour operators provide camping equipment.

How to reach this place: This pristine river is located 95km away from Shillong. There are many options to visit this place. One can take a bus from the capital city to Dawaki. Megahlaya tourism department also conducts tours to this place. Their office is situated in the famous Police Bazar. I took a cab as I had very limited time and wanted to see many things.

Sri Lanka Through My Mobile

It is not possible for me to carry my bulky DSLR every time. And in many tricky situations, I completely rely upon my mobile – Mi4, which has become a reliable travel tool for me over a period of many years. I had clicked various pictures of beautiful spots of Colombo from moving buses. So the snaps may fall short on picture quality, but I am confident the images will still catch your attention.
