Goa’s Gorgeous Butterfly Beach

It was my birthday and I wanted to explore a lesser-known beach of Goa. A tea-stall owner, who served me copious amount of tea in the morning, suggested me to visit Butterfly beach, which I instantly accepted. Some fisherman in Agonda offered to take me around that beach for a sum of Rs2,000, which I politely declined. My good Samaritan, the tea-stall owner, guided me to reach that place. It was May – a typical hot and humid Goan weather.

I rented a scooter and set off my journey towards the beach. After driving 1-2 kilometres on a deserted stretch with no one in sight except vast forests as company, I began to have fear of losing my way and exactly that happened. I lost my path. With no sign boards and people to assist in finding direction, this was bound to happen.

The roads were terrible. While randomly driving, I saw a jeep full of people. I told them about my destination and sought their help in finding my way. They happily asked me to follow them, as they too were heading towards the same beach.

After driving few kilometres I finally reached the beach. The turquoise water quickly erased my pain caused due to my tortuous drive to the beach. Other than me there were couple of travelers, who soon left the area. I was left all alone, lounging on the beach and soaking up the sun, which was nothing less than pure bliss. After spending around 1-1/2 hours, I left the place. While returning I took a wrong turn and again lost the path. However, somehow I managed to reach my hotel.

Langkawi’s Magnificent Seven Wells Waterfall

While holidaying in Langkawi I was advised to visit Seven Wells Waterfall, one of the most picturesque tourist spots of the island. Known locally as Telaga Tujuh, this magnificent waterfall is named after the seven natural pools.

I booked a taxi from my hostel to reach the waterfall, which is situated in Pantai Kok area. It is also close to the Pantai Kok Beach and Oriental Village. One has to climb 638 steps to reach the place. While climbing the steps, one can enjoy the vast rainforest of Mount Mat Cincang. You are bound to see a large number of flora and fauna. I stayed there around one hour and indulged in swimming. It is recommended to be very careful while swimming. Definitely one of my life’s most memorable experiences, which I will cherish forever.
