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.

My Pokhara Sojourm

Pokhara is one of the top tourists destinations of Nepal, providing a major boost to the Himalayan country’s tourism sector.

Pokhara got added to my itinerary during my Nepal trip on the advise of some of my friends. The city attracts a large number of tourists as it is the starting point for them to kick off their trek to the Annapurna mountain. Phewa Lake is one of the most attractive tourists spots in the city, offering stunning views.

During my two day-stay in Pokhara, I spent most of time on the bank of the lake, viewing endless sky and pristine water. A number of water-sports activities are conducted on daily basis for tourist at the lake. The prices of these activities are fixed so no scope of bargaining.

However, I opted not to indulge in any sports. When it comes to accommodations, the city is home to a number of hotels, hostels and resorts and one could easily avail them without much hassle. So advance booking is not required. A number of bars, cafes and restaurants will welcome you once you land there.

Interestingly, I found evening more relaxed and soothing than morning. Bikes and bicycles are available to explore the city, a place where I would like to come again and again.

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.

When Bangkok Surprises You

With a hot and humid weather, I had no option but to search for a place full of greenery. During my online search, Google suggested me a nearby place called Santichaiprakan Park, which is close to Khao San road.

The park impressed me after an overview and I decided to visit the place.

I approached a tul tuk guy and paid him 40 bhat.

Located on Phra Athit road, Santichaiprakan Park is full of greenery, though not big in terms of area.

One can fully explore the park in just 20 minutes.

The park, situated in the eastern part of Chao Phraya River, offers some scintillating views of the sunset.

And near the vicinity of the park one can find beautiful Phra Sumen Fort, which was constructed during the end of the 18th century to protect the city from foreign invasions.

While returning from this place I stumbled upon a cute coffee shop and had some nice warm coffee.
